4G PAP continues to live in its own self-delusional world

The late LKY & the PAP loved to use the phrase, “NO ONE OWES YOU A LIVING” but apparently, they have forgotten the phrase when they gave themselves high salaries & unaccountability (for performance).

Let’s not talk about S’poreans but our country Singapore instead. The PAP 4Gs are the worst lot of politicians I’ve seen. Pampered, pompous & totally unconnected with economic reality. Apparently, S’pore is going downhill fast. The previous day’s shock announcement of Barisan National’s demise at the ballot box was a game changer of sorts. I chuckled that it was the same day when the PAP govt announced the Jurong MRT extension. Mahathir was never a friend of S’pore nor did he particularly like the PAP.

Remembered during 1998 ACC, he closed CLOB & destroyed the wealth of many S’porean investors of M’sian shares. The question is will he honour the High Speed Rail (HSR) signed under his predecessor Najib or will he have his own agenda. This wily old fox will be a difficult guy for PAP’s 4G leaders to handle.

The current day PAP govt had wasted the financial resources built over the last 4 decades of careful husbanding & collection of govt revenues & their parsimonious spending on the people. Now they are going full tilt with debt financing to go through a series of megaprojects. Yet I detect all these spending will not improve the well-being of S’pore & for the people. You see, the PAP is trapped in the GDP growth mode oblivious to the climatic change that is taking place around the world.

The obvious factor is the huge carrot dangling in front of them eg. ministerial bonuses for exceeding GDP growth. But the US (with Trump pursuing USA-first policies), China (XJP & OBOR shifting trade routes) & now Mathatir, we’re witnessing the shifting sands before our very eyes. At the end, No one owes you a living comes to bite the PAP.

  • CCS is dreaming:

    CCS is now talking about the economic challenges facing Singapore. Who cares? LHL faced the economic challenges facing Singapore by importing huge numbers of “cheap” (no CPF) foreigners. This depressed local wages and demand from foreigners resulted in a sharp rise in prices. Foreigners took away jobs of Singaporeans. Singaporean PMETs wound up driving cabs. Price of HDB flats also more than doubled.

    CCS should know that the only thing Singaporeans are really thinking about after regime change in Malaysia is why not also have regime change in Singapore. The usual PAP “spin” will no longer work. Regime change in Malaysia is a new “game changer”. “Fixing” social media after the Committee on Deliberate Online Falsehoods will not save PAP from regime change.

    AGREE FULLY WITH @ ANALYST, 4G are a hopeless clueless lot. They are not around since yesterday only but almost a decade. They saw how 3Gs screwed up this country and had nothing of their own to offer of change and direction forward. Mostly echo chambers of the same rot. One cannot help but concludes that 4Gs are walking ossified skeletons living on borrowed times in a changed world they won’t even acknowledge of turbulent shifts.

    Can’t blame them on starkly obvious incompetence, most came in by GRC backdoor as apprentices learning the ropes without relevant technical skills or experience in public policy formulation. How many got experience in the business/financial world of tested and proven resilience – even of no success? Blind as a bat I suspect.

    Put them into hedge fund management, they will be eliminated by the market challenges in less than 3 months and never to return.

  • clown pap goes as najib umno:

    The PAP 4Gs are the worst lot of politicians I’ve seen.

    bro, well said. agree. the current bunch of pap Ljs and pap Cbs are the worst including that recently selected INDIAN malay president.

    when Mr LimGuan Eng was asked what he was going to do as Finance Minister, he said, help malaysians, ensure malaysians are not left out, benefit malaysians, job opportunities for malaysians, business opportunities for malaysians.

    we just shed tears when we heard he say those words. malaysians are so lucky to have Dr Mahatir and his new team.

    when we look at out current bunch of pap Ljs and pap Cbs, all they say day in day out is, S$m for me, help ourselves to 10 months bonus, ensure we are not left out in next 18 months bonus, business opportunities to our kakis and our paper generals. and some crumbs for that obedient 70% sheep.

    ffff. thinking about the good luck malaysians have GE14 and our bad luck GE2015 makes our blood boil.

    the current bunch of pap Ljs and pap Cbs must go.

    we need New Government from a better group of Singaporeans quickly.

  • PAP.Guarantee.Win.GE2020:

    Dear readers,
    Nothing to worry about Dr M, he is old already.

    Remember, Ringgit drop after opposition announce winning the election.

    Mark my word. Ringgit will crash to RM 10 to S$1 the moment Malaysia removed GST. MY will run out of money to service the high national debts.

    Malaysians are stupid just like the stupid Taiwanese who voted in opposition only to find opposition also equally corrupt.

    Singapore is right in paying out of this world high salary to Ministers and MPs and Civil Servants.

    This has successfully weed out corruption.

    And Average Singaporeans support PAP out of this world high salary.

    Average Singaporeans be forewarned:

    - Vote PAP for strong S$$$$. (Old uncle, you will be loved by more meimei be it thais or indon)
    - Vote Opposition and S$ will crash. (Old uncle, your thai or Indo meimei will dump you)

    WP.Guarantee.Lose.Aljunied-Hougang.GE2020
    Average Singaporeans don’t care. Singaporeans are average only.
    Average Singaporeans support PAP 9% GST hike to give 9% salary increment for Ministers
    Average Singaporeans support PAP demand of Singaporeans to be cheaper, faster, better

    Well if the end does come for PAP in the next 2 elections then there will be a lot to see just what the new government does to make life better for us.

    It’s true that PAP is delusional and has the thinking that nothing will go wrong. It’s also assumed that keechiu Chan will do the same shit that goondu Loong is doing now since he is shit out of ideas anyway so might as well stick with what works.

    But I always like a bit of drama in politics. I never expected goondu’s siblings to make public their old home’s status nor Keppel’s embarrassing revealation of being corrupt for more than a decade. I’m expecting Chan chun choy to backstab goondu once he becomes PM.

    After all when he becomes PM and has the power then what can goondu Loong do to him right?

  • Mahathir wise words:

    Mahathir talked about toppling a regime is necessary because with any well screwed in regime, it has built a network of plps in cahoot with the regime and it is only possible to dig into the truth behind the regime that could only have the plp bureaucrats to nurture a growing arrogance and aggressiveness. This is perhaps what LHY the exile prince referred to as compliance but was not challenged in open court perhaps for reason given.
    The public derogative $10 chaitowkwei was spewing out glorious words but nfi behind them if one read closely. Apology to all good honest salesmen and quoting what seat warmer GCT once described the opposition party, grounded ruthlessly to the ground by PAP fear of growing vibrancy of the dissenting public, as pack of salesmen (later he did apologise when salemen rose in anger agsinst his arrogant nfi reference but the citizenry understood he was referring to the dishonest lot among them), the chaitowkwei is more despicable than a saleman of the worst kind which those honest kind would exterminate if they can to save the integrity of the profession.
    GCT should examine about his own party present lots with the same mentality as he saw the opposition party in the error of ruthless indocrination which seniors cannot forget and forgive for the results of a passive fearful populace. As history repeats itself, Singaporeans gradually coming out of the stupor state and starts thinking again thanks to the intolerable arrogance of the nfi younger papists. Hopefully Singporeans mince over Mahathir words on the only way to dig out the truth behind a strongly rooted regime. As the saying goes in all races, if one has nothing to hide, why one is so senstive about transparency. Singaporeans should also minced over the words abot one hand chopping down the other in contrast to the ‘self check s and balances’ jazz put out by the revered late strongman.
    Malaysia has indeed sent a shck wave thru the world regarding the evil of having the same govt for decade and the health potion coming with regular changes. Just like a long neglected storeroom in the house. Just imagine if it has not been clean for 50 years, what could be lurking inside it?

  • Good Luck to the 4G leaders:

    Excellent and timely post by Analyst.

    Mathatir is known to have given Singapore’s previous 2 PMs (LKY and woody Goh) a hard time during his previous fourth Prime ministership from 1981 to 2003, from water rates issues, land titles owned by Malaysia in Singapore, to even proposing building a funicular crooked bridge to replace the causeway.

    I remembered reading somewhere (news) that he made woody Goh waited for about 30 minutes before granting Goh a meeting.

    Mathatir is no ‘Najib’, which LHL can rub shoulders. Both Najib and LHL are ‘monetary corrupted and greedy’, the only ‘corrupt’ difference is the former is ‘illegal’ and the latter is “legal’.

    I do not think LHL can handle Mathatir! Good Luck to the 4G leaders. Their saving grace is that Mathatir is 92, and there is a chance he may go senile during his premiership as the world’s oldest PM.

    Many senior might remember the emperor favourites by G-O pair for banana reason. Following up event showed one went off to help the uncle as banking boss (emperorvexplained he needed the money to support his children oversea education) but not long after returned when the rock was reduced to dust but emperor explained it was because his royal plp loved to serve poor Sporeans which was quipped by kopitiam lay conversationists as his chance to poverise the poor dafts. That era also moulded the Seat warming model sending the partner to higher pedestral but not long after kaput wrapped in royal rage.

    Another royal plp went he same way,literary slapped into the seat much to the dismay of investors with a immediate give away of $2 m soory angpao for two Sporea bred bankers. Surprisngly he didn’t last as he soon returned to the help the dafts enhancing their funds. The rest is embossed in Singapore history hopefully written without the famed castration as in Chinese dynasty events recorder.

    Yes Oxygen your doubts false or true depending how ther r shammed to mean!
