Parliamentary debates of highly-paid 4G Ministers show that they bring nothing new or innovative to the table

Over the past few days, Parliament has debated the President’s address. Through this, ordinary Singaporeans had the opportunity to hear speeches by some of our 4G leaders.

If we were to recall what Lee Hsien Loong said, the 4G leadership will have to work as a team and it is sad to say that the quality of this team has been quite disappointing. They are basically saying what has been earlier said and bring nothing new to the table.

For example, Chan Chun Sing (who is supposedly our next Prime Minister) said that our drive will determine how far we progress as a nation for the next 50 years. He also said that we needed top leadership and that Singapore can secure its place in the world by staying relevant and principled. But wasn’t this already said by Lee Kuan Yew more than 50 years ago?

Everyone knows what LKY thought of attracting the best talent. In fact, it was he who said in a 1963 speech that “the will, the cohesion, the stamina, the discipline of their leaders which ensure it an honourable place in history. In a later New York times interview, he that we have “to go in whatever direction world conditions dictate if we are to survive and to be part of this modern world”

So you see, nothing new has been added to the table despite the mainstream media praising Chan Chun Sing.

Ong Ye Kung (who is supposedly another candidate for Prime Ministership) has mentioned that Singapore needs to use education to ensure that underprivileged Singaporeans have a chance to succeed and move up in society. He also said that Singapore has policies on National Service and Housing which ensure that each housing estate has a different mix of people from different backgrounds.

What is so new or innovative about Ong’s speech? Wasn’t this said by LKY that resulted in him creating the ethic quota for each HDB block so that Singapore could have racial integration and Harmony? And an article from the international media said that it was Lee’s “fast-evolving public education system that was free and open to all that has elevated Singapore to once unimagined levels of prosperity and importance.”

Again, Ong is repeating LKY’s vision without adding anything new to the table

Then there’s also another military men Ng Chee Meng who has pledged to help low wage and mature workers. This is someone who has been given a scholarship and an accelerated career path throughout his entire life, so I seriously doubt that he knows the struggles of the average man. In fact, I am quite willing to bet my last dollar that the government is not going to do anything substantial.

Look at how they have refused to implement any minimum wage for cleaners and claimed that this will cause them to be unemployed. In fact, most would remember a BBC published a viral article entitled “How do Singapore’s poor families get by?” back in 2014 which caused outrage. 400,000 families have less than S$5 a day after paying for utilities, school, rent, loan instalments and healthcare.

I am not trying to be critical of everything, but it is more a case of how these 4G ministers are not bringing anything new to the table!

    The 4G guys are just repeating everything said long ago by their predecessors because they can’t think of anything new to say. So might as well just recycle old shit and impress upon the dafts loh.

    At the end of the day it will always be bread and butter issues above all else. You lose your job and have a housing loan and family to feed you would be very worried.

    Let’s see what other stuff will be repeated by 4G. Off the top of my head I can think of the following:

    - Help the poor/underprivileged/needy etc

    - CPF Minimum Sum has to go up again

    - Singapore needs to attract good talent

    - National Service is the glue that unites the nation

  • Malaysia boleh Singapore bodoh:

    From ST: “Parliament: Extending leases of older HDB flats involves ‘serious trade-offs and ramifications to consider”, says Lawrence Wong.”

    The lease of the HDB flats would not really be a serious issue for Singaporeans if they were not OVER_PRICED in the first place. Over the last 5 decades, real wages have gone up only 6x while the price of public housing has gone up 30x(!). The price more than doubled since LHL became PM while wages were stagnant (and still are).

    The 99-year lease period would be a big issue because many Singaporeans would NEED (not just want) to sell their HDB flats to have money to live after they retire. Over-priced HDB flats deplete the CPF accounts (below the steadily-rising CPF Minimum Sum). This problem was made worse by stagnant wages over the last decade because the large influx of “cheap” (no CPF) foreign workers have depressed local wages.

    Bottom line. Singaporeans have either lost their job to foreigners or the latter depressed their wages. In addition, the money they are saving for retirement in their CPF account is in over-priced, depreciating HDB flats. Singaporeans are caught between a rock and hard place. They really have nothing more to lose. They should follow the Malaysian example and vote for REGIME CHANGE.

    “4G leaders ready to take Singapore forward: PM Lee”

    Why so soon? Is it because of the recent regime change in Malaysia? Is this supposed to focus the attention of Singaporeans on 4G leaders (and their promises) instead of the “accomplishment”, if any instead of the failures (too many to count) of 3G leaders headed by PM Lee?

    Does PM Lee believe “Malaysian boleh, Singaporeans bodoh”? Does he think Singaporeans are stupid and gullible and will continue to vote for PAP despite is failures? Singaporeans must remember what Einstein said: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

    Hopefully, Singaporean realize that PAP will not change. Why? Because to do so would mean admitting it made mistakes. Has PAP (or LKY) ever admitted they made mistakes?

    “There is still value in older HDB flats: Lawrence Wong”

    Nobody said there is no value in older flats. The real issue is the value. Singaporeans expected their HDB flat to be a store a value, not a depreciating asset after PAP said it is an asset that would appreciate.

    Sure Singaporeans can sell their old flat but most of the proceeds the sale will have to be returned to their CPF – what was used to pay for their old flat PLUS accrued interest. This leaves a small balance.

    True, a 99-year lease is good for two generations but the 1st generation cannot keep it for two generations because after paying for the flat CPF account of the “owner” (actually a lessee) would be depleted. To have money to live on in very expensive Singapore (“thanks” to PAP) the flat has to be sold.

    The new 2 room flat on a 30-year lease is not cheap. The rent works out to $8 per square foot per year. While the “rent” on a new 99-year (called a lease) works out to less than $3 per square foot per year. HDB is still making a lot of money on the small flat with a short lease.

    Larence Wong is playing “fast-and-loose” with the facts. Isn’t this “fake news”?

    PAPpys PREVARICATION AT ITS BEST – d*ckless wonder PAPpys are telling Parli that there are deeply embedded “trade-offs and ramifications to consider” but CAREFULLY SILENT ON WHAT THESE ARE and WHO is SUFFERING the CONSEQUENCES & IMPACT of these failed policies!

    ST/Lawrence Wong: From ST: “Parliament: Extending leases of older HDB flats involves ‘serious trade-offs and ramifications to consider”

    Whilst these circus show is on, no PAPpys inside the political zoo stands up to ask these OBVIOUS QUESTIONS

    - if land is so important to PAPpys hidden political/economic construct, why DO YOU ALL “SELL” THE LAND TO PEASANTS in public housing BUT NOT TRANSFERING PROPERTY RIGHTS thereon to the buyers in transacted sale yet SILENTLY AND INSIDIOUSLY TRANSFER the proceeds of land sales to the Singapore Land Authority?

    - having known that land is important presumably to future generations, HOW COME YOU ALL PLAY WITH THE FIRE OF ASSET ENHANCEMENT SCAM to then transfer wealth from the masses of peasants poor to the elitist rich?

    - the DEADLY CONSEQUENCES of both imperil and endanger the economic survival of masses of peasants. House values WITHOUT THE LAND COMPONENT in public housing stealthy seedy land deal (but no title to peasants) is reduced to this simplicity of deadly risks exposure of it depends on EVERLASTING ECONOMIC BOOM (impossible!!)or simply a GAMES OF CHANCE AND GAMBLING i.e. come economic crisis or GFC, peasants are stuck and trapped with worthless old flats, no asset, and no means to retirement subsistence?

    - factoring all the above POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC CHICANERY, why do you all play with the fire of peasants survival by seducing PEASANTS DUMBFARKED GREED of gaming and GAMBLING with their retirement survival by encouraging and seducing them to bet their CPF money in your property scam of asset enhancement?

    WHY OVER THE COURSE OF LAST 15 YRS PEASANTS WERE TOLD NOT TO SELL THEIR FLATS AS THE VALUES MUST KEEP RISING – EITHER STUPID ECONOMIC OR THE PAPpys are a DELIBERATE PURVEYORS OF LIES or both.

    The entire mob of PAPpys inside the political zoo DISPLAYED THEMSELVES TO BE TOTAL ECONOMIC MORONS OR A MOB OF LIARS UNLIMITED.

    Peasants were told that there is still value in older flats. POPPYCOCK! What value is established or imagine when the HDB resale market is in a state which is called FROZEN FARK – when there is no buyers around to give proof and substance that he/she is willing to cough up $360 for a 40 yr old 4 rm-resale?

    ABSOLUTELY BODOH ARE THE DUMFARKED BODOH from the no-farmland peasants (just like feudal China) to the UNNATURAL ARISTOCRATS (who got rich by the asset enhancement politics scam and GRC backdoor entry) – NOT ONE OF THE Alice-dancing-in-Wonderland amusement park 4Gs or the completely failed 3G spoke a word about the parlous state of global economy (the world) and LEE-jiapore is facing.

    EVEN THE DIVINE POPE IN THE VATICAN GOT UNIT OF ECONOMIC RESEARCH and displayed an uncanny insight into global economy and financial markets by warning the world of the parlous risks facing us – especially the poor. Here you go.

    Pope warns of ‘a ticking time bomb’ whose explosion would devastate market

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-pope-warns-of-a-ticking-time-bomb-about-to-explode-in-the-market-2018-05-17

    The POPE is right – a time bomb is about to explode. AND IN THE SO-CALLED EQUIVALENT PARLI SESSION TO TALK ABOUT THE-STATE-OF-THE-NATION and the path forward, PAPpys in governance are IN TOTAL BALCKOUT OF SILENCE!!

    They are waiting to see how the peasants will die of poverty starvation when this tie-bomb explode to THE PEASANTS’TOTAL SURPRISE caught in a strange contradiction of

    - older flat no value even now, forget about fire sale to fill the hungry stomach and desperation of survival of global economic turmoil.

    - no CPF left since whatever trapped inside housing BET/GAMBLING all vaporized to nothing

    - remaining CPF not invested in property CANNOT BE WITHDRAWN – IT IS RESERVED FOR MORTALITY that is coming SOONER than later – you still have to pay for your cremation!

    PAPpys party on – everything on fire sale when the economic time-bomb explode – they are the elite with money – it is GODSEND ASSET ENHANCEMENT POLITICS SCAM ROUND TWO.

    You can buy SEX in Geylang for a night of orgy for 10 cents, yes only 10c and the working girl is only 16 -NEVER MIND SHE IS UNDERAGE AND WHAT THE LAW SAYS THEN.

Which one have any significant global financial market experiences of how many years handling uncertainties, say in investment banking?

    I will bet that it is either the apprentices “disappear” or the clients of the hedge funds they invest on behalf of “disappear never to return”. Yes, it is binary of

    Yes or No

    Under a strong plp supported regime, it is logical to expect no talents would be employed. Plps would not allow one to getvthru to expose their inadequacies to their blame carrying subordinates especially those who good but only see their plp colleague promoted. If one talent does seep thru, he would be facing his idea was suppressed and surfaces sometime later as a innovative initiative of his plp superior. When he gets wise to it, he will definitely be removed. Soon the whole damn place is filled with plp garbages and those capabke ones preferred to remain passive while looking for a change including emigration. As the saying goes “Garbage begets garbarge” or “Birds of the same feather flock together”. When a former PM, despite a resounding vote of confidence from the citizenry thru a National Referendum when the late PM openly declared his confidence and choice of succession was on the pair of bananas (TY pair) n not on one banana on mango (GO pair), he betrayed not only his running mate with his influence over his Chines ed colleagues but also the citizenry when he succumbed to just be a seat warmer until the prince was sufficiently matured to succeed and complete the evil nepotic dream with him shadowing his successor as regent (攝政皇 which was a normal practice in ancient Chinese Dynasty) for immatured or unthrustworthy successor which he did till his death.
    Without the Regent, the nfi exposed so also the men he recruited. Whatever the immediate predecessors, the men of their CAREFULLY recruited will have the same set of values and same characteristics so it could only be worse and not better.

    It is another layer of his prevarications including the assertions that some people don’t want extension to the leases.

    JohnLim: What he says is “illogical semantics”. e.g: “Extending leases of older HDB flats involves ‘serious trade-offs and ramifications to consider”, says Lawrence Wong.” What’s so difficult about “extending leases”? What “ramifications”. He attribute “ramifications” to cost of maintenance. How can this be so? What’s the alternative???

    OF COURSE. HIS FONT OF SILENCE IS THIS – why not put up his offer of lease extension now at say at $1,000 (yes one thousand only ) per annum of length extension to the existing lease just like COEs to all HDB owners and see how many will take the bait?

    AFTER ALL, THE TRUTH IS THAT HDB “OWNERS” have already paid for the land but denied of its legal title, so there is no encumbrances of entitlement of HDB owners to accept his HDB “COE” of $1,000 per annum lease extension of only the building structure which after 99 years is going to be expensive of maintenance (to the full and acknowledge of Minister, right??

If one project the 30 yr lease to 99 years, the price per square foot is FAR MORE EXPENSIVE than equivalent per sq ft for a new 5-rm BTO. Eligible millennials get grants for their 5-rm BTOs but the retirees got the reverse. They have to PAY CAPITAL GAIN TAX specially tailored and reserves for retirees which cannot collect otherwise by IRAS as no capital gain tax regime operates in LEE-jiapore. And that is $30K to $40K in capital gain tax DISGUISED DECEPTIVELY AS RESALE LEVY for their old flat sold in price distress now of diminishing lease life.

    Who – except the most stupid and uninformed still wants their 2-rm flexi of 30 yr lease too small for family needs? LET THIS ROT AS A WHITE ELEPHANT in each of the new BTO blocks despite HDB CEO’s brave public arrogant claims that retirees are desperately “in love” to buy over this money trap sucking DECEPTION extracting out the last life-blood money/life out of waiting to die peasants.

While the “rent” on a new 99-year (called a lease) works out to less than $3 per square foot per year. HDB is still making a lot of money on the small flat with a short lease.

    Larence Wong is playing “fast-and-loose” with the facts. Isn’t this “fake news”?

    By election time, more and more desperate retirees will find the old homes unwanted of buyers, too big to expensive to maintain and 30yr 2 rm flexi BEYOND THEIR FINANCIAL REACH and totally farking PISSED OFF with their capital gain tax.

    LEE-jiapore is ripe for our ELECTION TSUNAMI in GE 2020.

  • PAP CHEATS:

    Words are cheap. Now they talk bombastic.

    It’s all airy fairy, all lip service.

    In the last GE, PAP launched 88 page manifesto to do this and that. After they won, that nice sounding manifesto was all forgotten.

    Since the dishonorable son did not refer to it anymore, no Minister or PAP MP dared to mention it anymore.

    Across the Causeway, PAKATAN members and leadership keep on saying they have to carry out promises in their election manifesto.

    PAP cheats voters and are a BIG HYPOCRITE.

    So bear this in mind, when all these clowns talk big.

    All fairy tales.

  • Repeat Telecast Is it?:

    Last few days, Parliament Sitting is like repeat telecast!

    Suddenly talk about Equality, Share and Care and all the bull, got scared by results of GE14 across the Causeway?

    Poor acting!

    Why no MP stand up and ask for update on Accounting of Nation Reserves,
    Losses of Temasek Holdings, GST still go up 9%, etc?

    BE REAL PLEASE!

    Familee have bought them off with a pot of gold each so they’ve to keep on praising the emperor’s clothes.

    Everyone watches the Emperor’s lips to see where the wind blows before opening their big mouths. This will be the theme from now on.

    But netizens must call out the cheat that’s PAP. From now on too.

    PAP is a cheat. A penipu in Malay.

  • Handing Over of Gahment....:

    Maybe the Council of Presidential Advisers could come out with a SOP to ensure
    the smooth handing and taking over of Gahment.

    Better to have a SOP than scrambling to prepare one after an Election.

    Malaysia has a King that is neutral, do we have anyone to see the smooth transition of power to a new Gahment?

    Can an Opposition MP call for the SOP at the next Parliament Sitting as we may need it after the next GE!
