Minister Josephine Teo’s most profound statement: milk is milk

The amount of rubbish spewing from PMO Minister Josephine Teo’s mouth is just incredible.

Recall that Josephine was the joker who once said:

About 7 months ago, she became a sex expert overnight and encouraged Singaporeans to make babies, no need to think about setting up home.  More important thing for couples is to quickly find a small space and remember Nike’s slogan.

Josephine can’t seem to stop embarrassing herself and recently tried to take Singaporeans for a ‘milk is milk’ ride. [ CNA article ]

In trying to deflect the issue of escalating cost of formula milk raised by her parliamentary colleague Tin, Josephine even suggested that consumers are not sufficiently educated. CNA: “Expect more public education on formula milk and a bigger push for breastfeeding ….”

But wasn’t the government pushing for breastfeeding since … 1979? (see below) How big a push is Josephine talking about now?

TOC article: “To protect and promote breastfeeding in Singapore, the Ministry of Health (MOH) established the Sale of Infant Foods Ethics CommitteeSingapore (SIFECS) in 1979. This committee formulated and implemented the Code of Ethics on the Sale of Infant Foods in Singapore..”

According to the Health Promotion Board, this is to “guide the marketing practices of the Infant Food Industry”.

And so it appears that many at the HPB must have been sleeping since 1979 or later, causing the average cost of formula milk to increase by 120% in the past 10 years. Someone must be held accountable but isn’t it better to cover up HPB’s blunder?

Should HPB CEO Zee Yoong Kang, a former paper colonel, be given the boot?

What about government-run NTUC Fairprice which carries a range of expensive formula milk? No one knew prices were going through the roof since 10 years ago?

To make things worse, Josephine even claimed that she had bought “whatever was cheapest or on sale” for her kids. Netizens naturally doubted anyone with a million-dollar income would be so kiam siap when it comes to baby nutrition. Not saying that she lied but there’s always a possibility as this joker has lost all credibility.

Going by her logic on sufficient nutrition, Josephine and her family should not be dining at restaurants since hawker food also provide “enough nutrition for adults [babies] to grow healthily”.

As usual, PAP politicians seize every opportunity to sing praises of themselves.  Shameless Josephine on the AVA: “As long as AVA approves its import, the milk is good enough.”  Subtle PAP propaganda at work again.

Josephine should quickly unlearn her cock talking skill so that she will be less likely to embarrass herself in future.

The issue has to do with accountability which, again, has not been addressed.

Josephine: “Milk is milk, however fancy the marketing.” Hmm… Singaporeans don’t know meh?

    ON FOREIGN INFLUX AND COMPETITION, JT once said this – AT SOME POINT,WHY CAN’T WE LIFT THE LID OF COMPETITION.

    With fake employment credentials UNCHECKABLE AND NOT CHECKED AT IMMIGRATION INTAKE POINT and qualifications from degree mills?

    Why not also lift the lid of competition in the HOUSE OF MOST EXPENSIVE DECORATIONS filled with walking dead talking cawked and silent of all truths and realities?

    How about dumping FIX THE OPPOSITION and BUYING SUPPORTERS’votes in election using taxpayers’money?

    She wanted over $1 billion to transform Bishan into Sinkieland Suzhou’s imaginery HEAVEN ON EARTH beauty of Venice of the East by building an artificial river during the 2011 election?

    With her distinguished background in finance/economics from London School of Economics,how come she DIAM DIAM DIAM on supermarkets in Sinkieland earning more than 7.5% aftertax return that is 4X to 5X the global average margin when Minister Masagoes refused WP’s request to set up wet market in competition in Upper Serangoon?

    Don’t tell me from her academic and working background in the labor movement she didn’t know peasants “WAY OVERPAID” for their food prices in Sinkieland manifolds when they are paid third world wages in the first world economy?

    CLOSE SHOP, LAH!!!

  • Eager To Learn:

    Josephine fame came to be known to many citizens, not because she is a minister, but for the funny suggestion of making babies by the small space, like the staircase. I hope, in order to promote her popularity further, will she demonstrate in a live show, how to do it in a small space?

  • Nothing special:

    What’s the fuss about milk doubling in price over the last 10 years. HDB flats also doubled in price over the last 10 years ago after LHL became PM. PAP is not worried because its office holders do not stay in HDB flats and they have their million $ salaries so milk is still “cheap” even after price doubled. Remember PAP’s unspoken mantra: “you get sick and die your business”.

    When your boss is a clown, the stupider and sillier your ideas, the happier he will be with you. This explains how Jo Teo kana selected for promotion after promotion and has just been promoted to a full minister.

    What does she know about milk anyway. Flat chest. Some more she probably grew up eating bird seeds with the obvious birdbrain that she has.

  • Just1more:

    She may be correct to some degree but certainly not addressing the real issue. Granted most milk products have similar content but there are additives added for some brand thus the price difference. The issue is not allowing big companies to “bribe” hospitals who then unfairly promoting certain brand as preferred milk for infants. Get it Jo?

    What major contribution? not even minor one!! Can we consider “Sex in small space” as a contribution?

    Come to think of it, not only Josephine did nothing, other ministers also got nothing to contribute. Totally a waste, even rubbish can be used for land fill, these ministers only just occupy space and waste of taxpayers’ money.

    Then again,PAY IS PAY?

    Why minister must demand for HIGH PAY BEFORE THEY WANT TO BE MINISTER?

    Jo,which school you come from?
    Think your thought process is bonkers!
    I am afraid my future will be at risk with ministers like you.

  • Food for thought:

    She bought cheap milk powder for her children.
    She need only a small space to make babies, we can assume her house is not very big/
    So I think she must have saved a huge sum of money, or does she invest her million dollar salary in properties like the PMm and former PMs and companies of her PAP cronies like Mah?

  • opposition dude:

    I see this more as her saying something for the sake of wayang’ing and nothing more. She got blasted real bad over the small space statement but perhaps she was arrowed by goondu Loong to say something.

    So with yet another “milk is milk, however fancy the marketing” statement she naturally opens herself up to yet more lampooning.

    While it’s true that milk is milk via the big picture she conveniently, to no surprise, forgets that the different classes of milk are there due to the ingredients used. If it’s indeed true that milk is milk then all milk would be equal and taste the same but alas, it isn’t so.

    There is this thing called branding and marketing which poor auntie Jo has clearly forgotten.

    This is why women should just stay in the kitchen and men leave their women at home whenever they can like when they go fishing or bring their car to the workshop. Women must learn when to ‘open’ their mouths. In the minister’s case,the less said the better.

    Just because she had a piece of paper from LSE does not mean she has a working brain. Recall the photo in LHL’s facebook where four clowns leaped into the air for a “jump shot” at DC? Proof that when her boss says “jump”, her response is always “how high?” The other buffoon in the monkey picture is the anal son-of-punggol – Guess what? both have been promoted like greased lightning.
