Farm owner Ivy Singh-Lim wants to start all-women political party

The New Paper | Koh Hui Theng | Wednesday, Aug 6, 2014

'I'M THE FOURTH G': Mrs Ivy Singh-Lim wants to start a women's-only political group called the Gentlewarrior's Party.

The men don't get it.

Farm owner Ivy Singh-Lim wants to start a political group called the Gentlewarrior's Party and only women need apply.

Citing the dearth of female leaders in the Cabinet and various industries, she told The New Paper: "(My party) will comprise all women. "I believe women are all honest and that's why very few of them can go into politics."

Her campaign is to "get rid of dishonest people, (including) the evil men and stupid women" who compromise principles and make excuses for their actions.

"When the rich don't love the country but love the pursuit of money, then we have a problem," she said.

"I'm worried that our country is heading in that direction.

"If you love your country, you'll speak up, no matter what."

The 65-year-old is counting on intelligent women to aid her quest, "not to overtake the Government but to add good values (such as courage and fairness) to the system".

"I'm not saying the entire system is bad," she added.

"But we need more younger people with good values to go into the system so that we can have a more honest leadership...

"People like us would dare to tell the ministers to read between the lines, listen to what we're trying to tell you."
