SINGAPORE - After three days on the campaign trail for the July 10 election, several key battles have emerged, from the Singapore Democratic Party's comment on the country's population size to suggestions that the Workers' Party is just a lite version of the ruling People's Action Party (PAP).

In our lunchtime chat series, Mr Warren Fernandez, editor-in-chief of Singapore Press Holdings English/Malay/Tamil Media Group and editor of The Straits Times, talks about how the gloves seem to have come off between the PAP and the opposition parties.
