PAP spurs stuck into the hides of Singaporean undergraduates must be removed

The unbelievable shortage of doctors in Singapore is due to PAP’s screwed-up planning. This has resulted in public hospital appointments stretching for months or even up to more than one year.

Public healthcare institutions are managed on a for-profit basis and they have tried to lower costs by hiring lower-paid doctors from third-world countries. Some are willing to work for as little as $3000, according to an online report. [ link ]

Singaporeans should not buy into PAP’s propaganda about our world class public healthcare institutions. Instead, we should be asking ourselves why there are no doctors from first world countries. This is not to say that local doctors or all foreign ones are substandard.

A friend whose daughter took up medicine 5 years ago told me that there were many foreigners enrolled in the same course. (Hope some readers can confirm this.)

With more than 300 new doctors every year, why do patients have to wait for months just to see a doctor?

How many foreign undergraduates are funded by the government? If there’s a shortage of doctors, why aren’t more scholarships given out to local undergraduates?

There should be only a handful of foreigners funded by taxpayers because we have an oversupply of “outstanding” students, according to PM Lee.

In 2011, PM Lee pointed to the 2,000 applicants for 300 places at the National University of Singapore’s medical school and said. “All of them had outstanding results.” [ universityworldnews ]

Why should outstanding Singaporeans be forced to study at foreign universities while foreigners study at public universities at our expense? No wonder more Singaporean talents are not returning.

Not only has PAP implemented a pro-foreigner policy, more PAP spurs have been stuck into the hide of local undergraduates in the form of exorbitant tuition fee increases over 26 years.

According to master statistician Leong Sze Hian, PAP has increased university tuition fees by between 6.7% and 11.1% for 29 yearsTOC article (That “University tuition fees were increased sharply, by 30% (for non-medical courses) in 1989 and a further 35-40% in 1991” is testament to PAP’s very short-term planning.)

What makes this bad situation worse is the fact that inflation rose at an annual rate of only 1.9% from 1986 to 2014. As Singaporeans paid more, our government coffers swelled and PAP was able to increase the grant quantum for an increasing number of foreigners.

Singaporeans do have a choice to put an end to this sorry state of affairs. Hopefully, many will wake up, remove the PAP spurs stuck into the hides of local undergraduates and stick them into PAP

    Why outstanding locals not given scholarship or place?

    1. Locals will expect better pay
    2. FT doctors will accept low pay and poor working condition
    3. FTs will convert into citizens and votes

    Local not supposed to go for degrees but poly or ITE. Foreigners will manage locals in the new Singapore.

  • riot cowards vs war heroes:

    I recall that G. Yeo when he was Health Minister restricted the number of varisty places in medicine because he ‘foresaw’ there will be an oversupply of doctors in SG.

    And many of our frustrated bright students had to pursue their dreams in medicine in universities abroad, many probably never to return to practice.

  • Amos spurs on PAP hide:

    Amos managed to do something very unique. He stuck his spurs on the hide of PAP and the Lee family when he beat them big-time in a US court. A first. It must have been so painful they could not / did not reply.

    Tell you a story,..

    Had to do a cataract surgery at National Eye center,..so when to do a pre checkup,…but “failed” due to high blood sugar.

    Lan, lan was asked to go back to nearest Poly clinic and re-check blood sugar and get “clearance” again otherwise NO Surgery will be done.

    Desperate, plus Tun Lan,..cos high blood sugar was caused by me drinking Milo provided by Eye Center as Eye centre that day was very cold due to raining outside…explain to doctor , but they don’t bother,..jus throw “protocol” and “sop” back to me.

    Tu Lan,..before walk into Poly clinic,..jab myself with “quick fast acting insulin” incase same pblm.

    Mana Thou , when my number came, I went into room and saw a sir lanka accent doctor. Told him my problem of how the eye center doctor rejected and failed my pre test…all because of a sip of milo which happen 20 mins after my slip.

    Low and behold,…he just immediately took out his personal doctor rubber stamp and ask me what was my blood sugar reading before I when to his poly clinic…I told him 6.0

    He accepted my verbal reply and did not a single finger prick and blood test.

    “Chop” goes his rubber stand…..out I came..Happily.

    This is best co-operation by F/t doctor.

    Not just such wage issues,they have been there for years eversince lee ah long started dunping Foreign Trash by the planeloads here.

    The other socio-economic issues are just as severe.
    Road Safety is ONE BIG ISSUE often neglected and go undiscoursed in n out of parliament.

    There are countless of FT-drivers with FAKE LICENCES that are being converted to Sg Driving licences by the “LIGHTNING EXPRE$$” conpany,er,PARTY.
    A HUGE PROPORTION of these are even PAID PROFESSIONALS IN LOGISTICS N TRANSPORT industries like SBS ?

    With more n more of such FT-drivers,the number of FATAL N DANGEROUS ACCIDENTS HAVE INCREASED.
    YET,THE POLICE PATROLLING HAS DECREASED N WILL DECREASE FURTHER with the recent announcements by the POLICE NOT TO CALL 999 unless TERRORISTS STRIKE????

    THE MINISTERS cant be bothered as they have POLICE OUTRIDERS clearing their ways?

    SG is fast becoming a third world country under the LEEderSHIT of one daft called LEE AHlong.

    AFter serving their bond, young and good doctors are showing their Extended Rude Middle Finger to the so-called Restructed Coverment hospitals which are overcrowded 24/7/365 and so-called have underpaid them. THEY are following the good advice from their Mentor:what’s wrong with collecting more money”! Now they are working under major Healthcare Group, drawing more and better salaries. Can afford Shaking legs are Day LOONG waiting for filthy rich and big client from overseas paying fees and charges without batting an eyelid! No need to attend to the many endless stream of DAFTS seeking endless request for ‘subsidies’ and kpkb at those Coverment hospitals! This is the REAL Hard Truth not told by Lee Kayu aka the Horrible Man!

  • Local overseas trained doc:

    During the 1990s, lots of local students have to compete for limited places at the uni of melbourne or uni of sydney. If I remember correctly, each of them only admit 5 students.

    It;s a shame really. I think these returning Aussie trained docs will go join private sector.

  • Lye Khuen Way:

    That was most correct, ” riot cowards vs war heros “. George Yeo did that and mentioned something about medical cost not following the supply and demand theory.

    Well, whatever wrong policy then need not continued blindly since, right? Or it is still sacrosanct? Or the ruling party is still blind and deaf?

    @ PAP has the mandate

    A LOT OF THE 70% ARE JUST DUMBASS WALKING FARTS – they voted for “higher property values” (actually shrinking to zero in public housing confirmed by the Minister) to make that ghostly incarnation from PAPpy’s aSSET ENHANCEMENT POLITICS scam.

    Mostly deserves what they got now – trapped in over-sized unsustainable mortgage (even with full time permanent job) but just waiting to be displaced by cheaper foreign incubated by PAPpy Population Recycling Economic (pretended to be good for the daft 70% will lift property values higher).

    PAPpys raped them and ask them to scream thank you and gratitude for each of that joy ride.

    A lot will end up in bankruptcy and broken families – don’t pity that lot. THEY ARE TOO STUPID TO REALIZE THEY ARE STUPID and deserves every ‘reward” the PAPpy white dogs give to them.

    PAP has the mandate: who cares, Stinkies deserved what they voted for….I do not feel sorry for the 70% but I feel sorry for the 30% who has the high sight.

  • Aussie to be:

    I am a soon to be ex-singaporean living in Adelaide for the last 16 years and had recently attended an Overseas Singaporean Unit organised event- purportedly a networking event …LOL!

    I was amazed to meet so many Singaporean Students studing medicine in Adelaide and many were eager to find out how to remain in Adelaide. See what the government had done to us ! You, the government, force the poor SG parents to fork out so much money for their kids to pursue their dreams overseas and yet accept so many “rubbish” into our local education system. What an ultimate failure in your policy ! You just lost two of my kids from returning home and plus all these excellent students that would excel and flourish their careers downunder !

    Our education policy has been screwed up for many many years.

    Last time, one white monkey in charge. Now two white monkeys.

    The worst is yet to come. Local grads will face fewer job opportunities. More and more jobs will go to FTrashes with dubious qualifications

  • Nus School of PLP:

    NUS graduates are not viewed as suitable for MNC employ as the dead ‘great’ founding leader very loudly said to the whole world that Sinkies are daft or more locally understood stupid esp to those who aren’t Oxbridge graduates even if they graduated from the redbrick commoner unis

    However for those who have secretly learned the expertise of their professors and deans and directors, they will probably have a chance to hitch a ride in the Great Rub Carriage and possibly join the billionaire club and like hell they will surf you with lots of wayang and sermons.

    For the sake of Sinkies, adoring greats like SW, $8 and $10 XO men, City not Nation jayer, professors like the Salmon Chest recently said no study law, it will be a grear public service to set up a School
    of PLP. Surely PGovt will be overjoyed to dump millions of taxpayers dols to run it and consider as the elote for their recruitment and Majokakis.
