Given that many questions had been raised including when the leadership knew of the lie and whether they were complicit in the lie, it's time for WP to put their favourite call into action: the formation of an independent panel. This is in view of what we learn from former NCMP Daniel Goh, that speeches were vetted before they were delivered in Parliament. This is also in view of the fact that Sylvia Lim, one of the leaders on the panel, had been described as dishonest by 2 high court judges.
Prof Daniel Goh who remains a cadre in the party said in a Facebook post, "The leadership must take some responsibility for allowing this transgression to happen and persist over several months. The statement was not made on impulse."
