If I Were A Bukit Batok Resident . . .If I Were A Bukit Batok Resident . . . Going by the fact that Bukit Batok residents voted overwhelmingly for PAP in the last General Election, it is fair to say that Dr Chee Soon Juan has an uphill task ahead of him. How tempting (and how easy) it is for those of us living elsewhere to wish that we could cast our ballots to send Dr Chee to Parliament. At...

Roy Ngerng: Dr. Chee Soon Juan would make a good MP!Roy Ngerng: Dr. Chee Soon Juan would make a good MP! Chee Soon Juan was a university lecturer before they made him lose his position. Even so, he is a visiting professor for the past few years to other universities. The PAP looked at Dr Chee so highly that they invited him to join the PAP. Dr Chee politely declined because he wanted to advocate for more progressive policies. In...

Foreign workers hit all-time high?Foreign workers hit all-time high? I refer to the article “Unemployment rate for Singaporeans improves in first quarter: Manpower Ministry” (Straits Times, Apr 28). It states that “The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 1.9 per cent as of March 2016. The rate for citizens fell to 2.6 per cent, from 3 per cent in December, and that for Singaporeans...

0.9% p.a. real wage growth in 10 years!0.9% p.a. real wage growth in 10 years! I refer to the article “When wages race ahead of productivity: Should we worry?” (Sunday Times, Apr 24). 0.9% p.a. real wage growth in a decade? The real average wage growth was only 0.9 per cent per annum from 2004 to 2014 (Source: Ministry of Trade and Industry Economic Survey of Singapore 2015). To put this...

The very thing LKY dreadedThe very thing LKY dreaded Lee Kuan Yew once said in an interview: “It’s the friendships I made and the close family ties I nurtured that have provided me with that sense of satisfaction at a life well lived, and have made me what I am.” Clearly, family ties and relationships meant the world to LKY. In his own words, it gave him the sense...

Political dud should stay out of SDP's businessPolitical dud should stay out of SDP's business Lina Chiam is not and will never be like her husband. Despite Potong Pasir being an opposition stronghold for years and years, the moment Chiam left for bigger GRC ambitions, it fell like a deck a cards. This shows that Lina cannot make it as a politician and should stop riding on the coat-tails of her husband for her...

The uniqueness of Uniquely Singapore!The uniqueness of Uniquely Singapore! In Uniquely Singapore, troublemakers are people who have the guts to question the government openly. Chee Soon Juan asked about our foreign reserves, he was a troublemaker. Roy Ngerng became a troublemaker when he queried about our CPF savings. The government ministers are never troublemakers even if they initiate...

Bukit Batok Upgrading Covered by URA, Wrong for Murali to Make it an Election IssueBukit Batok Upgrading Covered by URA, Wrong for Murali to... The SDP would like to reassure voters of Bukit Batok that all government agencies are non-partisan and will work with whoever is elected as MP for Bukit Batok SMC. The URA has a draft master plan which covers all the planning areas in Singapore. In their brochure of the draft master plan for Bukit Batok published in...

The PAP'S porky pig pork barrel politicsThe PAP'S porky pig pork barrel politics David Ong had promised a $24 million "master plan" for Bukit Batok in the 2015 general elections. Murali's plans only cost $1.9m. Ong promised more than Murali - and these included remaking the market in the estate and its surrounding areas, improving the shops in the ward, a new hawker centre, as well as a...

Do you think that nothing is wrong with the PAP?Do you think that nothing is wrong with the PAP? In 1963, one half of the PAP exited the PAP to form Barisan Socialis. And you think nothing is wrong with the PAP? In 1963, PAP arrested most of Barisan's candidates and won a landslide, and you think nothing is wrong? In 1968, Barisan boycotted the elections on grounds of unfairness, and PAP won 100%. And 100%...

The greed of PAP has manifested in our rotten public transport systemThe greed of PAP has manifested in our rotten public transport... Over the past week, we have seen major transport disruptions which are unprecedented in scale. A power dip on 25th April caused disruptions in three lines while there was a morning outrage along Woodlands to Kranji less than 12 hours later. In some instances, the TV screen even showed that the trains were functioning...

Strange data on IT workers, union members?Strange data on IT workers, union members? I refer to the article “More people lost jobs last year, with manufacturing and services hit hardest” (Straits Times, Apr 20).

Ravi Philemon: I support Dr. Chee for Bukit BatokRavi Philemon: I support Dr. Chee for Bukit Batok MParader Goh Chok Tong in his latest post remembered Chee Soon Juan as the 'trouble-maker' of the 2001 GE. That is the image people of my generation generally had of the man. I first met Dr Chee Soon Juan at a candlelight vigil in 2009, soon after I came back from the USA. (Can't remember what the vigil was for now.)...
