Regaining the trust of the people?

I refer to the article “Has trust in the government been eroded? It’s time to talk frankly” (Straits Times, Feb 1).

The article by Straits Times Opinion Editor, Chua Mui Hoong states that “For this group, maintaining trust in Government is not the issue, because it has already been eroded. They may be a minority, but they are vocal, and with social media and technology, their views spread quickly and are amplified.

As someone from the media with some access to the political elite, who remains friends and in touch with ordinary folk remote from the centres of political power, I sometimes feel like I live in two worlds.

I defend the Singapore system to those who have lost confidence in it. I am proud of my country. I am also a product of the same system that produced the political elite – some schoolmates are in the top rungs of the public and political service. I too believe in the importance of exceptional, competent, honest government. I give our leaders the benefit of the doubt; I believe most mean well and are doing their best.”

If we study history – there are ample examples of how trust is regained from the people.

When there is a change in leadership – the new leaders have an opportunity to be transparent and accountable for the past. After all, these were not during their watch.

So, Singaporeans may soon be able to look forward to the following:-

  • to have “live telecast” of Parliamentary proceedings?
  • to have the signing of a petition at public locations, for the live telecast of Parliamentary proceedings?
  • to make public the CPF Life’s actuarial reports?
  • to make public the MediShield Life’s actuarial reports?
  • to make public the formula and the criteria, for calculating the financial assistance under Comcare?
  • the employment change that went to Singaporeans, instead of locals (Singaporeans and permanent residents (PRs))?
  • the number of new PRs and new citizens (average of 30,000 new PRs and 20,000 new citizens granted per year) that are automatically reclassified as resident workers (jobs growth, unemployment rate)?
  • the difference between the returns derived from our CPF funds and the interest rates credited to our CPF accounts?
  • the additional revenue to the public transport operators by deferring -3.2 per cent of the -5.4 per cent fare reduction (computed from the fare adjustment formula) to next year’s Fare Review Exercise?
  • how much the “real starting salaries” of polytechnic, university and ITE graduates have decreased in real terms in the last eight years or so?
  • the actual proportion of true-blue Singaporeans in the population, after adjusting for new citizens?
  • what is our social welfare expenditure as a percentage of GDP?
  • what is the cumulative sum paid to new citizens over the years, under the HDB  Citizen Top-Up ($10,000 housing subsidy that is given to eligible Singapore Citizen/Singapore Permanent Resident (SC/SPR) households when a qualifying household member becomes a Singapore Citizen)?
  • what is the proportion of the CPF housing grants given as a percentage of the total revenue from selling HDB flats?
  • for the more than 1,100 PMETs helped under the career support programme – what is the percentage helped, out of the number of unemployed PMETs?
  • how many civil servants have ever complained about their Minister to their permanent secretaries or the head of the civil service, in the history of Singapore?
  • in the history of Singapore – how many companies have been “given a conditional warning in lieu of prosecution” for corruption?
  • how much profits are made in total by Singapore Power, Singapore PowerAssets and the power generating companies?

  • opposition dude:

    Uncle Leong, when a new party does take charge the first thing they have to do is to at least make HDB flats really affordable and not affordable according to PAP’s own rules. It would greatly help to reveal how much flats actually cost to build and to price them accordingly.

    Second thing would be to change all the nonsensical rules PAP have in place regarding our CPF. Followed by actually reducing the number of non Singaporeans on the island and not wayang by saying the population has only increased by 0.1%

    Everything else like how much we have in our reserves, how tenders are awarded etc can wait. Make the changes that will affect citizens’ lives the most first. Bread and butter issues will always be at the top of the list.

    Many will undoubtedly argue that, one must take the rough with the smooth and/or there have been more good than bad, or even, we are a young nation and still learning.

    Five decades, the same party, the usual suspects ………. operating in the very same manner; with not the people, whom they have been elected to serve, at the heart of every decision and policy that they put in force.

  • Pride so critical not blind 1:

    For a man who is proud of his country, it is more so that he remains critical and say what he think without any threat of repercussion. Pride in the Nation and blind subservience to power there be are incompatible. You cannot be proud and be a polanpa to do as bided by the power there be atvthe same time. Why the power there be needs plps to facilitate its operation needs no elaboration and the outcome needs no imagination. The prouder you are of the nation the more critical and alert one should be. Plps survive and grow when power there be has in place a reward-credit system. What comprise credits, to whose advantage and why plps are needed to secure such advantage requires no high IQ to figure out. This is why in democracy one single party is lethal as this means absolute power. Why power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Whepowern there is a sizable opposition, it provides another view from a different perspectives. Even then corruption is possible when there are critical eyes around. just imagine when they have absolute power, there are no critical eyes around, given men’s nature no matter how super financially, power or education they have, they could do anything and legalizing them. The demanded procedure can easily be followed by their men. Externally facilitation can be easily attained by subjugation with merits rewards system. This with time becomes dynasty disguised in democracy. Under absolute power, integrity is precious as this will help prevent doing what suits them and benefits them. Integrity will dictate they seek citizenry approval on any law or operation that will benefit them entirely and exclusively with no thing for the citizenry. Failing to do so is like taking whatever and whenever they want and desire.

    Democracy and freedom are inter dependent and multiparty parliament is absolutely essential. Self checks and balances is plain bullshit. External checks and balances are matter of fact for it is almost impossible to corrupt a sizeable population of another party.

    SIN has been unfortunely fell into the trap of absolute power single party controlled. Paying a ludicrous humonguous salary to a ministers on par with highest paid CEO would not be possible if there is sufficient opposition. Commercial CEO and ministers have different privileges, objectives and nature of work. CEO is to create max profit for his company and the company pays for the success and sack for his failure. He has no privilege to call anyone to help at company expense. But a minister is there to plan and SERVE the citizens with the privilege of engaging outside experts free or at the expence of the nation. Even if he fails, he still stays on till the next GE. So service to the nation and dedication cum honour are their pride and moral…

  • Pride so critical not blind 2:

    Suppose a commercial CEO is paid 4 millions. He has to do all policy making and plan by himself at the very most input from subordinates. But a minister is different. If he has no clue what he should do. He can engage one or more consultants and pay by the state or he can appoint a committee of experts from industry on honary and zero pay. At the end they nay be honoured nationally. There is no limit to the number of ministerial committees he can setup or number of paid consultants. He can even appoint more ministers to help. If one total all the privileges, his salary will be limitless multiple of a commercial CEO. GCT claimed such high pay will minimise corruption. Small wage fellows not necessary will corrupt. Corruption is weakness of man and as the saying goes, greed leads to corruption and greed does not depend on how much a person gets or have. The more he gets greed will make him want to get more much more than what he gets. The argument is no different from fake news to fool. So if you love your nation would you allow greed to infiltrate public service without voicing your concern of eradicate it.

    Patroitism and alertness and awareness with critical view and opinion are inseparable. Subjugation is definitely a taboo and polanpa, brownnosing, bootlicking or similar are deadly taboo and needed to be exterminated at all cost. Plpism is a deadly enemy of patroit. Suppression of freedom of press, speech and assembly are necessary tools for patroitism. Otherwise patroitism is just big talk and no different as opacity is concealment of criminal acts and evils.

  • trust long gone lky nepotized:

    When PAPist swarmed the whole Parliament and when lky mounted his persuit of “for me u live, against me u die” or fmulamud mission. ISA was intensively used on pretext of communism without needs of open court and evidence support. Then plpism was nurtured with credit/rewards system, indoctrination of fear of communism while clamouring single party control is best although there is no difference in power which is absolute with the difference that single party control is effectively controlled by him and nepotism. With the mushrooming of plpism nationally funded rewards at his decision, his mission is fully implemented till the day he quitted this earth. Even then Amos misfortune by just his innocent boyish descript of horrible brought him and his family as his mission dictate.
    The trust on citizenry was not dependable so started the rampant mindless import of aliens without any strategy and planning of infrastructure to cope. Persecution of adversaries mounts with the matured plpism in support. The siblings squabble peak the for alien ko local campaign. This feeling intensifies across the citizenry. Not surprising the mass with the maximun impact of the fakol mentality seem to be slow compared with the few educated and patroitic not attracted by the credits/rewards lure. Greed was then advocated instead of gain trust to regain support. Wayang tactics were deployed to shield the fakol persuit. How are the mass realization and response to the fakol campaign will decide at the next GE. Whether we return to democracy will depend how badly is the absolute power is eroded with more oposition elected enough to stopped legalization without the vote of the opposition. This will depend how the ignorance and fear are normalized by the opposition in their GE rallies.

    Leong SH, are you nuts?
    After all the back-door manipulations by that fool on his father’s Will and also in back-stabbing his brother and sister and also all the gerrymandering for a fake Malay PE….and you STILL have confidence & trust in this gahmen?

    HAHAHAHAAA!!!

    So many LIES, half-truths and outright FABRICATIONS by this gahmen on Keppel briberies, SMRT failures and excuses, economic failures to plan, failure to plan for leadership transition, failure on international front with China and USA etc. etc….and you got the cheek to say you still have confidence & trust (because you have “some schoolmates who are in the top rungs of the public and political service” WTF???.)

    What does “having some schoolmates in top rungs….” have ANYTHING to do with the rational discussion here on performance or lack thereof?

    If anything, it only shows the same kind of sick mentality of CRONYISM and “Old school boy network” that is the one of the causes of FAILURE of this system. Instead of rational discourse based on true capability and factual evidence, we go by simple association to garner credibility?

    How does mentioning your association with your old schoolmates who done well in the civil service, add to your own credibility?
    You mean if my old schoolmate is top performer, then by simply being his classmate, I will also be top performer by default meh?
    Or that being from good school with good grades means he can be top performer later in life? Academic performance is one thing but real-world performance is another matter altogether.
    That is why the current system of academic scholars created so many useless paper generals who do not even dare to take responsibility for failures and prefers to push the blame down the rank and file. You call that performance or wayang?

    Anyhow, I agree with all those question list you have, but I doubt they will ever be answered truthfullly by the incumbent.
    NOTHING will change until they get booted out of office or lose their majority seats; otherwise all we are doing here is just ranting and venting our frustrations…..and wasting our time reading complaints and reinforcing each other as usual.

Can u trust such traitorous to serve in your interest. If you do she will be laugh coughing in her race car , a common factor between both scumbags. Can you trust the party when one former minister of health in responding to the citzenry which cry foul of the exorbitant medical cost boasted that he only paid $8 for his heart surgery including medication and first class ward and so the ordinary would to him should pay much less so why r they kpkb. When heart attacked Gan got fixed up, Sporeans rightly deduced from the musical chair dumb munster and kpkb that politically self made billionaire paid so little while the poor 3rd class patient would have paid tens of thousand for the same treatment. His plp immediately replied that the citizen is faking and the heart screwed minister paid the same rate as the cutizen. Which axxhxxx is lying?Can you trust that these dont know who lie to his teeth to serve in your interest. When Roy sought cpf to reveal its financial status but rejected and the opacity thickens instead. So he speculated but was sued till his pents dropped but he still is ignorant of the truth that makes his speculation slanderous. Return of ISA in different form. Can u trust the party with its rewards seeking plps to serve in your interest and your benefits. When plpism prevailed, trust erodes for self gratification and glorification cannot do without plpism. Even the used to be heralded as the lp warranting careful and fastidious poed by the gang of plps wrt the dead metaphorical large lp are now facing the wrath of the plps which used to po his.

  • Arrogance negates all:

    If any politician does not appreciate that arrogance not only say a lt of his character, his work ethos and his sensibility. Arrogance has been PAP hallmark short of writing it into their Mission Statement. Their arrogance has been widely known within and without the Nation. Arrogance immediately shows up the stupidity of the politician as their position is given to him not really in his ability or past deeds but on the image indoctrined thru part fear and part con of the party they belong and worse if they are just freecrider on the GRC wagon. If members of the GRC are to compete on their own, half of them will be ko long ago. If PAP thinks otherwise, try to remove GRCs and replaced it with SRCs. Bet at this stage when ground is bitter, their chance in SRCs will be at its worse. The question on medical cost borned by ministers as revealed by Khaw perhaps with a feeling of sneer at kpkb and he knows better cos he is a billionaire minister and Heng with a feeling perhaps that kpkb better covered up with par reason is still unresolved for no logical reason. A lie is a lie. now who is lying. Do Ministers have medical and Dental Benefits? How much? The Rotten Idiot Seat Warmer now defunct plp little Goh removed M&D benefits from all on his moronic rationale that people will not take care of their health if the benefits are not removed. Just for that and his rationale of paying himself and his gang in the Cabinet millions should be sufficient to rid PAP but cons thread and manupulations by absolute power keeps them in.

    What has the chaitowkwei shit got to be arrogant about except he is skillful to kill of his brain and replace one with where are the lps to po esp after his biggest lp he pos now is down and wants to be out esp the detrimental effect of burying the hard engineered reputation of the dead chief with the sibling wiki leaks which he lost his nerve to deal it as he has decreed himself to washclean in court and not in parlia and now what lp to po next if his is being ko.

  • Politician mental clot:

    When a politician began to have clot stopping its brain to stop at the nation is its home and all contained in it are its ie people its slaves at its bids and calls, they live, die or suffer on its whismes and asset all its which it can take, use throw at its desire (it=he, she) then there is serious power. Is nepotism reinforced with rewards based plpism breeds such creeps? Is SIN a living life example? This statement was made by a Ching General during the regime of Qian Long’s son when he was invited back by Emperor jiazing becos he believed he is the only honest and loyal man. Indeed reinstalling results in solid evidence to convict almost the entire court including the Prime Minister. This is perhaps the largest widespread greedy and cruel corrupt officers compared with the concentration in one man during Qian Long regime by the name of He Koon whose private asset is many time more than the national asset. The chief cuprit was opacity. It grows more opaque and the cant be exposed activity got wilder. Is history not a subject in political science but as the cliche goes to be bad it takes seconds & to learn to be good it takes years. So the effect on reading political history is obvious and the reader’s regards for human value and his greed would chane the rate significantly. Well the reality tells all.
