My sympathy goes to Dr Streram

    (Updated )

    COMMENT | Let me declare, at the outset, that I do not know Dr S Streram personally. I have never met him. Before GE14 and his subsequent court challenge for being denied entry into the nomination centre, I had never heard of him.

    However, that does not mean I am unable to support a politician whom I know absolutely nothing about. How many voters personally know the candidate they voted for, anyway?

    Mine will be a sympathy vote for Dr Streram. Sympathy vote, according to the Cambridge Dictionary, describes an occasion when a lot of people vote for or support a particular person because he or she has suffered recently.

    An example: He won the award, but some suspected he got the sympathy vote following his struggle with cancer.

    Oh yes, I have a lot of sympathy for Streram. I understand his journey from GE14...
