Conversation With An Indian FT On Singapore And Politics

Recently met an brutally honest Southern Indian, a very nice man. From hearsay and many stories, I understand Northern Indians are quite arrogant and snobbish. Talking to taxi and private cab drivers, they have many stories to share. Two major races are imported, Chinese PRC/Malaysia and Indians. Even Changi Business Park had been called Chennai Business park by locals.

This FT Indian worked for IT, quite high pay, renting a flat in Punggol. He decided to bring his wife and son to Singapore. Every year, he and his wife applied for PRs and were rejected. They have been trying for seven years. Both are highly qualified professionals with MBA and Masters. The reason he said PR will give them access to HDB, they could pay for the loan instead of rental, and could own the HDB eventually. Of course, he said there is no plan for his son to convert to citizen, need to avoid National Service.

What he said many highly qualified Indian professionals were rejected for PR applications. Many have Masters, PHDs and other qualifications. He told me he found Malaysian and China Chinese with Secondary qualifications could get PRs quite easily. He also told me a case of US professional rejected a number of times. I told him, our government does not want highly qualified professionals, they want naive and dumb so that they can be easily manipulated.

The last part he said, he found Singapore economy has been tanking for ages and his FT wife could not get jobs for few years already. I told him if your FT wife could not get jobs, it means locals are even worst off. He said our democracy isn’t real like Indian, its fake democracy. He further added that Singapore politicians have run out of ideas to govern this country, this explains why the economy is tanking for decades. This is the most shocking part, he actually said, “Singapore needs to transform, only possible with a regime change!”. I told him, Singaporeans are sheep, they rather wait for the slaughter house, they are afraid of change. He said if this happens in India, the party already voted out. Here in Singapore, even the party is crap, it is still in absolute power and no one dares to question.

I told him, Singapore will continue to sink under this leadership, its better to plan to exit Singapore since also his PRs are rejected. If we wait for regime change, probably we are no longer around by then.

  • PAP has the mandate:

    One should go work and stay in Indian for a period of time and read the Indian news. You will soon see the corruption from the bottom up. The sub-continent is one of the most corrupted county. When the Indians migrated to US for work, they still carry on their corruption with them. Just like Stinkies who will carry on their gutless characteristics with them regardless. Stinkies will always be kiasi, kiasu and kiabo..LOL

    For as long as you have dumb people around living with imaginary fear, sinkapor will sink. Nothing can be done. Actually the power is in people’s hands when its time to vote. Dumb people don’t even know their democratic rights let alone rational thinking.

  • NotMyProblem:

    Tell your this FT friend, Indian FTs are protected by CECA, whereas SG have no protection in jobs. You are right when FTs cannot secure a job means our own Singaporeans are worse. Singaporeans can only become taxi drivers, security guards and saleman.

    Singapore economy can wait, tanking or not!! The current government is very busy trying to fix the allegation of “abuse of power”. Every minister, MP and AGC are cracking their brains to help the PM how to get back at his siblings.

    At this time the whole state organs are busy. Everything else can wait.

    The President only about 2 months to go. Busy clearing his things, especially those stuff in his PC. When one has nothing to do, Internet can cure boredom, you know what I mean!!!

    The Speaker of Parliament is busy preparing herself to shift into Istana. Need to shop some new tapestries and carpets.

    The AGC is busy checking other people private Facebook postings. Otherwise how to sue people?

    Singaporeans, you can put on your life jackets and wait. The PAP govt will come back to you when their problem are solved.

  • PAP IS A SPENT FORCE:

    This proves that PAP is a “spent force”. LKY focused on PAP political dominance (through fear and repression), GDP growth and infrastructure development and “wasted” Singapore only real resource – Singaporeans. He “terrorised” them into silence and conformity and limited their education. That is why Singaporeans still have (relatively) low wages (not 1st World) and poor productivity with a high cost of living. Singapore Government has massive reserves but it cannot buy time. LHL and PAP are desperately trying to hang on to the “good old days” by “milking” LKY’s name (and his house).

    For sure, LKY’s son LHL is INCOMPETENT. Since he became PM 13 years ago it has all been “downhill” for Singaporeans with depressed wages, high prices, overpriced HDB flats, depleted CPF accounts, poor productivity, loss of jobs to foreigners, loss of university places to foreigners with taxpayers’ subsidy, etc. Only PAP office holders and spineless civil senior civil servants have done well for themselves with their million $ salaries.

    PAP is a spent force. Bury it with LKY. VTO.

    Vi Vi Balekisnan said we celebrated our 50th Army celebration and this is why we “can defend” against Bigger state ????

    Ownself say ownself “thinking” ?

    What makes him so sure that the Current batch of NSmen will and be willing to “defend” ????

    For all we know,….maybe these Young TrueBlues are waiting for that day to happen so that they can be “armed and equipped” to “hunt down” people like him and be brought to Justice !

    I had no issues “serving NS” in those 80′s days…..but I certainly have “BIG issues” if I was to “serve NS” during this era ( especially when the naked emperor and his consorts and eunuchs are “enjoying” under their skirts )

    QUOTE: “…that Singapore politicians have run out of ideas to govern this country, this explains why the economy is tanking for decades.”
    Since the 1997/98 Asian Currency Crisis, all of S’pore economic pillars formed under Albert Winsemius economic formula in the 1960s simply collapsed. China with it’s greater manpower base/wide expanse of land took over & S’pore simply hollowed out!
    Since then, the PAP under PM LHL had embarked on the following lop-sided economic formula:
    1. Wealth management center modeled after Monaco model – where did you think adoption of Formula 1 races; the uber-rich Sentosa Cove developments with yacht berths & the establishment of 2 casino ideas came from?
    2. Use of foreign manpower to work the economy which is modeled after the Dubai model. But unlike Dubai who retained choice jobs for their own people, the S’pore model had disenfranchised local PMETs in favour of whole clans & entire villages to replace our locals.
    3. Churning of BRICK ‘N MORTAR structures just to grow GDP – look at future development of Sungei Road, Rochor Centre, Paya Lebar Military Airbase & Keppel/Tanjong Pagar/Telok Blangah seaport & container wharves. Ask yourself this, is it necessary? Cambodia just banned sand exports.
    4. Unbridled influx [open door policy] of 3rd world migrants into S’pore to create housing demand & drive up the EAT ‘N SHIT economy (consumption) – again, for GDP growth sake. This left existing infrastructure [Housing, education, healthcare facilities (hospital beds) & public transportation (SMRT)] lagging behind struggling to catch up with this breath-taking influx of 40%-50% addition [between 2004 to 2011] to existing population. Also, remember the Population White Paper – 6.9m or even 10m by year 2030.
    QUOTE: “If we wait for regime change, probably we are no longer around by then.”
    The BRICKS ‘N MORTAR investments & structures are collapsing in the West through overinvestments (easy money) & technological disruption. The PAP with it’s BRICKS ‘N MORTAR STRATEGY are ploughing ahead with more BRICKS ‘N MORTAR forward (to fulfill PWP Policy) simply to grow GDP.
    Already one famous investment seer [using computer models] had predicted the end of Global Real Estate Market beginning 2015 & will see a 26 year contraction till the next recovery. This will take us to 2041 which I believe that many of us will ‘no long around by then’.

    When your government does that, it is a sure sign these multimillionaire ministers and MPs are looking out for themselves at the expense of a greying and births deficit population.

    A lot of homeowners/investors will be hurt. The government has no liabilities when selling land except to enlarge their coffers to impress foreign dignitaries when they travel in style while attempting to HUSTLE(steal) for more trade deals and economic cooperation to increase your stress, labor(enslavement)and mental disorder with more sleepless money problems and constant changes or upgrading till you return to dust.

  • opposition dude:

    Sad to say but the FT is spot on with his observation. One can only blame the majority of kiasees for voting PAP even when things aren;t going well.

    All love to complain about this and that but come election time all still vote PAP. I think these people would continue voting PAP even if they were all lost their flats and went back to kampung living.

    Then they will tell you, this is how we lived when we were young! So good!

  • never trust pap:

    I told him, our government does not want highly qualified professionals, they want naive and dumb so that they can be easily manipulated.

    it is all the more urgent Singaporeans, the true blue ones, to realize they must never trust pap.

    all schools are good schools? really. okay. the all schools are for pap minister children only. our children must go to NYGH HCI RGSS RI ACS and such. we must maintain our standard of living. pap minister children can go to the all schools all they want. our children must not.

    pap car lite is for pap ministers only. we cannot go car lite. we must maintain our standard of living. do not fall into the trap of buying an expensive hdb or anything else close to mrt and such. buy at a little further location. the savings can be substantial and the savings can easily get us a car to use for at least 20 years based on current prices. remember. car lite is not for us. car lite is for pap ministers only.

    cannot eat degree may be true for pap minister children. pap builds poly and ite for pap minister children. our children cannot poly or ite. as parents, as responsible parents, as true blue Singaporean parents, it is our duty our children die die must go to University. if we plan correctly, and not be like the stupid 70% being conned by pap propaganda, we can almost with high chance send our children to a University of our choice. remember. poly and ite are for pap ministers only. our children must go to University.

    if we are true blue Singaporeans, we must propagate the truth to our fellow neighbours, fellow colleagues, relatives, friends. never trust pap. especially car lite. especially cannot eat degree.

    which pap minister son or daughter poly or ite? name one. which pap minister son local U if grades allow overseas U? where did lky send his two sons? lky sent his sons poly or ite? no. lky sent his sons cambridge for 1st degree. for 2nd degree, lky sent elder to harvard. when younger went standford instead of harvard, papa and also mama, no very happy because not harvard. so if what works for lky is NOT poly or ite, then, poly or ite is not meant for our children. poly and ite are for pap minister children only.

    where did lky elder son send his children? to poly or ite? wake up. it is a pap lie. cannot eat degree is a pap lie. cannot eat degree so must go to poly or ite is meant for pap ministers only.

    did any pap minister take mrt to office? wake up. it is a pap lie. car lite is a pap lie. car lite is meant for pap ministers only.

    don’t be fooled by everyday radio talk cock about all schools are good schools. as said, the all schools are for pap minister children only. our children must go to the few…

    Don’t think the 69.9% bother about the abuse of power by Mai Hum alleged by his siblings or how he and PAPigs Gang run SinKapore with all sorts of crap policies and amassed themselves with obscene $millions $alarie$! Majority of the 69.9% are more interested and concerned that their prized possession(HDB flat, EC, condo or landed property) DO NOT FALL IN VALUE! All day and night LOONG, they are praying that the prices of their possession shoot for the sky to enable them to cash-in for huge profits so that they could invest in another property or if not, to retire gracefully somewhere to enjoy the beautiful sunset and breeze! Most have faith and trust that Mai Hum and Gang can fulfill their sweet dream. To them it’s not a Matter of IF, BUT WHEN! Like the saying: Mai Hum does things, “wo men hern fun sin” or w/o Lee Kayu or PAP, there will be No Singapore”!

    Part of why you have 70% idiots and 30% losers is because of the value you put in education.

    You have overlooked(most are in denial) who set the programs or programming in education. Doesn’t matter higher or lower education because the end result is 70% self serving and gullible idiots and 30% losers which is good news to PAP ;)

    India is the most disunited country in the world. It is divided by multiplicity of caste, religion, and language, made worse with cronic social inequity and endemic corruption from top to bottom.

    As for Indians coming here to work, government agencies that vet their applications need to double check their degrees for authenticity as many come with forged degrees. I interact with some of them in my line of duty. Many of them have questionable graduate and post-graduate degrees, obtain Employment Pass or S Pass through devious means and end up working in food establishments as table cleaners and kitchen helpers. Either they are too clever or our Ministry of Manpower is too stupid.

    Recently an Indian Minister commenting on the possibility of China overrunning Indian troops stationed at a border dispute area near Bhutan, cockily said that India today is not what it was in 1962 when it was defeated by China in a war against it. The Minister is living in self-delusion. If there were to be a war against China or Pakistan, for that matter, India will be India is the most disunited country in the world.
