5 issues I’d rather have a Ministerial Committee for

Instead of having a Ministerial Committee to try to find loopholes of a Will and try to overturn the Will, I’d rather our high-paying Ministers spend their highly-paid minutes on more important issues that affect the lives of the rest of us Singaporeans and not just focus on the private estate of the Prime Ministers. Here are a couple of Ministerial Committees I can think of:

1.Ministerial Committee on MRT system – to investigate why our MRT system is always breaking down. And to investigate why the new signaling system being tested over the past 3 weeks and causing so much disruption during peak hours when it is obviously not ready for prime time and to investigate who is responsible for approving the tests and if the person should be sacked for gross incompetence.

2.Ministerial Committee on failing HDB lifts – to investigate if the maintenance of our HDB lifts are adequate, given the numerous lift-related accidents, including a snapping of the lift cable. To investigate if the money spent on maintenance was properly used or if there was a lack of oversight in how that maintenance money was spent.

3.Ministerial Committee on inadequate hospital beds – after first reporting in 2014 that Singapore faces a severe shortage of hospital beds, with patients being seen lying on makeshift hospital beds in hospital parking lots, it seems like the shortage still persists. 3 years on and the number of hospital beds per 1000 people in Singapore is at 2.27, lower than most developed economies (Australia 3.9, Japan 12.27, Hong Kong 4.44).

4.Ministerial Committee on how attorney generals are appointed – The current Attorney General Lucien Wong was PM Lee’s personal attorney, does not seem to have experience as a public prosecutor but was appointed at the government’s attorney general. An investigation into the process by which public prosecutors such as the attorney general is appointed should be conducted.

5.Ministerial Committee on cronyism in Singapore – Enough said. We all know: the PM’s wife is the Executive Director of Temasek Holdings, the PM’s brother was the CEO of Singtel and the PM’s sister is the Director of the National Neuroscience Institute. A more comprehensive family tree of just the PM alone – let alone other ministers – can be seen here. Disclaimer: I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the claims, including the family tree, made in that website.

    Ministerial Committee to ensure that in future NO ONE esp the Pee-M brings his own FAMILEE personal “private matter” to Parliament for debate or Wayang, wasting precious taxpayers’ money. Personal private matter as advised by our HoLee statesman Woody should be settled amongst the FAMILEE members or in the Hide Court.

    Ministerial Committee to ensure from the next Parliamentary session onwards, the attendance rate of each session must be at least 80%. Speaker of the Parliament is appointed NOT to squat there as a Tua Pek Gong. He or she is expected by SINKAPOREAN to do the right thing: ensure FULL ATTENDANCE by ALL MPs. Keep a record of those habitual absentees and to issue Yellow Card(1st Warning) and Later RED CARD(go home fly kite and fiack spider: in other word “Seah Thai” or to step down as MP) unless they can give STRONG reasons why they keep absenting themselves frequently. Attending Parliament session require them to be PRESENT ONLY for a few days NOT weeks or months!

    Ministerial Committee to ensure that the Pee-M and ALL the Ministers and their subordinates and the Sitting Bull President have their SALARIES to be REVISED DOWNARDS BY AT LEAST 50% or MORE to be in line with the salary of Head of State of other 1st World Country like USA or China! Paying all our Ministers with out of this world obscene $millions salary(like the CURRENT whole bunch of Ministers and Gang)only encourage money $eeker$ to join the Coverment for the $eek of $$$$ rather than to SERVE for the CALL of the country! Retired Perm Sec Dr Ngiam is RIGHT when he spoke the words of wisdom that Ministers drawing $millions salaries WILL NOT DARE TO TELL THE EMPEROR THAT HE HAS NO CLOTHES ON. EVEN HE OR SHE WANTS TO SAY IT, THEIR SPOUSE WOULD NOT ALLOW IT!

    Please add in one more for : Why must Singapore PM and the Ministers are paid over and above their capabilities and competency, whereas in big countries like USA, China and Russia, whose sizes and density of population, requires more competency and more capability to manage, are paid much much less than those Chiak Liow Bee.?

    WELCOME to the State of SingaporeINC where Millionaires & Billionaires are welcome and the ordinary can go to the Dogs…

    What you have stated in real life is true, to th best of my knowledge and belief. Though hypocrites, lairs and statistics may want to prove otherwise in order to cover their own skin and to continue to hook-wink the general daft and tida-apa (no hue) public, so that they can continue to get their votes and remain in power happily every after.

    The recent Oxen vs Bulls (shit) Saga on the House of Ox, to be remembered hereafter as the Darkest Day in Singapore’s History, (whether preserved or demolished and turned into a Memorial Garden or Lovers’ Park or PAP’s Orgy Ground does not matter) show us clearly how deep the dirts have permeated and how widespread the powerful unseen hands have encroached into Organisatons of State and Individuals’ life.

    This is extremely frigthening and unsettling. Without this expose by the Princess and Prince of the Dead Emperor against their own Crown Prince Dictatorial Brother, we the commoners would not have been able to phantom how powerful the Power That Be is.

    Innocently, most of us have been under the spell or bewitched into believing that there is some honesty and decency in the ones who controls our lives and country. But no, I was shocked to learn that the Power House has been turned into a personal automatic washing machine that is even better than the huge ones we seen in the Laundry Shops all over Singapore.

    The Personal Automatic Washing Machine (PAWM) aka Power House aka Parliament aka PAP-LEE-MEN, has been so useful to wash dirty linens in public that within just two days, all the dirty linens and carpets have been washed clean. This is unbelievable!

    How nice would it be if every leader in the world could own such a wonderful PAWN?

    LHL has been PM for 13 years. Should also have a ministerial committees to look into each of the following:

    (1) Productivity growth over the last 13 years
    (2) Wages Growth and Increase in Cost of Living over the last 13 years
    (3) Minimum wage for Singapore
    (4) Increase in Price of Public Housing over the last 13 years
    (5) Use of Public Funds on Foreign Students in Singapore
    (6) Competitiveness of Singaporeans vs Foreigners for Local Jobs
    (7) GIC losses in UBS
    (8) Temasek losses in Barclays and in Merrill Lynch
    (9) Number of foreigners employed by GIC and Teamasek
    (10) Profitability and financial standing of self-funding stat boards like LTA, SLA, JTC, URA, CAAS, etc.
    (11) Cost of building public housing (HDB)
    (12) Accountability in government hospitals for medical errors

  • NotMyProblem:

    No lah! These type of Ministerial Committees do not ensure any personal gain. Some more so difficult!

    Prefer “Secret Ministerial Committee”, which is easy, no minutes, no specific ministers involve (aka secret), no term of reference, just kept asking for same info. Investigating the obvious. At the end, promotion and pay increase. Can self declares no conflict of interest.

  • Let Me Tell You Why No!:

    Because the 5 issues do not affect the rich and the well to do!

    You think ‘they’ are interested in the low and middle class?
    You die your problem!

    If they want to solve, they would have done it long ago; the 5 issues are not new problems that Singaporeans faced.

    Come on, they are more concern about their ‘iron rice bowl’ and how to make more money and live a comfortable life!

    Late L*Y is right, 69.9% of Singaporeans are DAFTS!

    The coming PE is the right opportunity to vent your frustrations!

    I think I need not teach you what to do, there is nothing to lose!

    Deliver a strong signal and ‘jog’ the Gahment into action or else nothing will ever happen!

  • Party or Singapore:

    The ministerial committee is spending the time for the PAP Party interests or for the people of Singapore. Can it be considered as misuse of office hours for personal interests?

    Where is the ministerial committee for the MRT complex signalling problems which were seriously affecting the public.

    Why the PAP not interested to solve the peoples problems?

  • Wh ministers?:

    Why we need ministers at all?
    GCT justified ministerial pay inmillions bevsuse they are damn good better than the top CEOs but they do not live up they are paid so why need them
    PAP should be out for failing their job. It is justvthat simple. Thevonly thing is to reducrd their salary to not more than $250k a year as committee or experts are needed. MP should be reduced to not more that $48k as they are only part time and seems to have nothingvto do eccept ya ya wayang.

    Singapore is run by a gang of stupid jokers have nfi of anything.
    The Trump meeting may lead to more billions lost on soverein investment as the arrogancecgot all heated up and gorilla would be farting all over the US throwing away Yuaof notes.

  • Singapore Fooled Again n Again:

    Totally agree to your suggestions, Shawn.

    What’s the point of setting up a MC on the Oxley Rd house when the Will already said to demolish or if cannot demolish from the Parliament’s Act, only the children of lky and it’s descendants can enter.

    So much money, public resources and time over something that all Singaporeans except a few can have access to.

    They know exactly what the will was all about, and they know they have the power to change it so they just want to change it. That is precisely we call it “abuse of power”.

    Also one person knew he has power to manipulate Parliament, so he used Parliament to acquit himself from wrong doing. This is also called “Abuse of power”.

    One woman, making use of the name of PMO, gave away things to someone else without the owners’ consent is also abuse to power, just because she sleeps with the person in the PMO. It can also be classified as theft if reported to police.

    There are more but meet you in Hong Lim Park on 15/7/2017 at 4:00pm, and we can discuss further.

  • opposition dude:

    I just want a committee on how to not make Singaporeans so kiasee come a GE.

    Once the cure has been identified it must be administered at the next GE so that PAP won’t be running the show and doing whatever they like whenever they like.

  • Sonkee:

    If SINGAPOREANS WANT INVESTIGATION OR TRIAL THEY WOULD HAVE DEMANDED FOR IT.
    NOT WANTING IT CAN BE DUE TO 2 POSSIBLE REASONS :

    1. IGNORANCE
    2. INTENTIONAL OR
    SELF PRESERVATION AKA KIA SI

    EITHER REASON SPELLS DISASTER FOR FUTURE OF SG.

    All true but you did not go far enough. Who put PAP “elite” in power? They did not grab power by force. They are in power because the majority of Singaporeans stupidly continue to vote for them. This is Singaporean’s insanity. They keep doing the same thing but expect a different result.

    Bottom Line: BLAME SINGAPOREAN VOTERS. This includes the 30% who voted for the opposition. They are not blameless. Why? Because it is clear that their voting for the opposition is NOT enough. They should also convince other Singaporeans to do the same. Each voter they convert is actually “as good as two votes”, i.e., one less vote for PAP and one more vote for the Opposition. Will they do it?
