PAP government should not keep two set of statistics on foreigners, something amiss

The PAP government has been keeping 2 sets of statistics – one for itself and another for the public. This is an unethical practice.

Of course PAP has the statistics on foreigners studying at local unis. Years ago, NUS staff statistics even had a breakdown by nationality. [ link ]

Out of 974 research staff, 464 or almost half were from PRC vs only 180 Singaporeans. Singaporeans form only 20% of the total number of research staff.  And why were there only 17 UK and 17 US research staff?

A top ranking NUS only able to attract hundreds of research staff from a communist third-world country?

From the above table, we can see just how embarrassing it must have been for PAP to shoot itself in the foot. And of course, similar statistics are no longer published.

Statistics on foreign students are being concealed by NUS and all other local unis even though they are obligated to disclose to the public.

Since it is only logical to suspect something is amiss when a company keeps 2 sets of accounts, something must also be amiss when PAP keeps one set of statistics for itself and another for the public.

What do you think?

  • hallmark of the PAP:

    Spin and lies, telling you only the goodies and hide the baddies and their incompetence and brainwash the N. Koreanized minds with the msm they have complete control over, isn’t that the hallmark of the PAP?

    Not surprised. Isn’t the lack of transparency (and fairness) the reason when Amos defeated PAP big-time in US court?

    Same pattern when the number of non Singaporeans is not disclosed often enough and all PAP says that the influx is being “valibrated” and “moderated”.

    Indeed, calibrated and moderated to bring in more of them on the way to beyond 7 million!

    Lets be real…..old fart wouldn’t be calling you a Daft for no reason right ?

    It is only “US” ,to blame for failing to “educate” the remaining 70%.

    Having said that,…P.a.p probably already had long planned to “screw all the natives” and that is why the hordes of Easy qualification from PR to New Sillyzeans .

    Don’t tell me you did not or cannot feel that nowadays,…this place dosen’t seem to have those “patriotic” & “pride” feel anymore ?

    Infact, I am not surprise that many Native born ( having sacrifce their youth in NS )may even feel that their future and rice bowl are now being “threaten” by those so called Foreign ,cheaper, better ?, faster talent ?

    While I agree with writer that there should be only one set of books on student statistics in our local universities . However I do not share the view that “…..research staff from a communist third-world country ? …….”

    China is not a third world country. FYI, the Russians esp in military technology are on par or in some areas well ahead of US. Have we not heard the news in 2014 when entire communication system on board warship Donald Cook in the Black Sea was disabled by Russian planes ? Their MSM kept mumb on it.

    Nowadays , let us be aware and be mindful research in US and the West are being compromised , serving only the interests and agenda of the 1 % oligarchs.

    @ Reminder to the 70%

    MATE, FUTILE EFFORT, most of the 70% are too-stupid-to-even-realize-they-are-stupid.

    Even Ah Kong & Ah Mah riding on public transport at peak hours can see the foreign domination – except that they don’t understand that this foreign presence-induced demand pressure is RELENTLESS DRIVING UP THEIR COSTS OF LIVING – whilst their own retirement life CPF savings got imprisoned to their mortality – in effect is theft of private property contrary to statutory and common law applications of trusteeship law UNIVERSAL.

  • Statistics:

    Russia n North Korea does not have 12 billions defense budget but
    they managed to design ROCKETS.
    Taiwan, South Korea, Japan does not have billions spent on
    immigrants but they managed to have outstanding companies!
    Japan does not rank top in Asia education but it has 22 Nobel Prize winner,
    Taiwan has 2 and HK has 1.
    We spent tons of money on IMMIGRANTS and keep inflating our cost
    of living to REWARD our INCOMPETENT MINISTERS.
    Can we continue to sustain such ECON Model?

    We have greedy evil PAP bastards who call themselves natural aristocrats and pay themselves billions, all other countries do not have these parasites.
    This is an outstanding achievement created by dafts.
    Shouldn’t dafts be proud of this unbelievable feat of getting themselves screwed?

    I believe everyone knows:

    1. They keep 2 sets of stats
    2. Tweak stats in their favour
    3. Manufacture fake surveys, stats and reports
    4. Lots of advertising on MSM

    But I think it’s the stockholm syndrome where when things not seen clearly, they give themselves good excuses. People wish to quickly put down any negativity of govt by looking for excuse.

    So the manufactured stats give them false assurance but they are happy to use it as excuse.

    Forget about the stats; the main point is after spending billions of taxpayers’ money on foreign researchers and students, where have they got us?
    What is the ROI?
    Do we have a world class company?
    If they just spend 1% of the funds on social matters, Singaporeans will be a lot happier!

  • Dont trust PAP:

    Wonder which country or organisation hacked into government and research data of NUS and NTU systems as reported recently. It was reported the government knows who did it?
    Insider job in collusion with external party?

  • Dont trust PAP:

    To score high points in ranking, NUS and NTU will continue to import more foreign researchers and admit more foreign students.
    The irony is that as NUS and NTU get ranked higher, more true blue Singaprean NUS and NTU graduates get displaced by FTs.
    PAP will convert as many of the foreign students and graduates and staff of local universities to PRs and Singaporeans as possible and then import more foreign students and staff to mask the statistics.
    That is why we see and hear more foreigners not just in CBD but all over Singapore, yet the number of PRs as reported by DOS shows only slight increase over the years, reason being tens of thousands are invited to be PR and Singaporeans every year/

    *****
    The PAP have always operated with two sets/versions of most “things” ……. which is, “one for you and one for them”.
    They are able to brazenly do this as they have been mandated by the millions, to operate with neither transparency nor responsibility …….. and with that, one can and should appreciate how the “two sets” evolved, persisted and now celebrated by the PAP’s.

    Let’s not now rein in or attempt to question their “methods”, not after five decades of prosperity, growth, happiness and sunshine. Ultimate question, is it nature or nurture ???

    It’s in the PAP’s nature to be deviant and conniving …….. and the people nurtured this. The perfect combination ………. don’t spoil it NOW !!!

    A clean and honest government only used one set of statistic, so if there are two sets of account, what you suspect and mine are the same, isn’t it?
