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). It states that “Seventy per cent of those who secured new jobs found them in a different industry from before, with wholesale and retail trade and administrative and support services being...

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.)...

The hidden truth behind Singapore's high costs of livingThe hidden truth behind Singapore's high costs of living Please note that when you do the cost of living comparisons between Singapore and other countries, take note of the hidden costs. (1) Housing a) What you are told: You pay a HDB mortgage of 2.5% b) What you are NOT told: You have to pay an accrued interest of 2.6% when you sell your apartment (paid using CPF) Net...

Dr Wong Wee Nam's response to Chiam's statementDr Wong Wee Nam's response to Chiam's statement To our media colleagues, this is a statement from Dr Wong Wee Nam, long time opposition supporter and retired GP, in response to Mr and Mrs Chiam's recent statement.

SPP should stop being so pettySPP should stop being so petty - Singapore People's Party (SPP) chairwoman Mrs Lina Chiam recently posted on Facebook about her husband's photo being misused by the Singapore Democratic Party's (SDP) Chee Soon Juan. According to Mrs Chiam, the photo had been published in the SDP newsletter and had falsely conveyed the sense that SDP's Chee Soon Juan...

SDP: We Are One, We Are Bukit BatokSDP: We Are One, We Are Bukit Batok SDP launches We Are One, We Are Bukit Batok, a social programme for the SMC should SDP get elected in the by-election. The SDP's mission is not only to manage the housing estate well, we also want to cultivate a successful town. But what is a successful town? It is one where the pavements and lift-landings are not...

Why I would vote Dr. Chee over MuraliWhy I would vote Dr. Chee over Murali Murali promised to Aljunied GRC residents that he would stay on even if he had lost in GE2015. Yet after losing and within 6 months, he abandoned Aljunied GRC for Bukit Batok SMC to try his luck there. Given his career in a law firm, would he still had the time for the residents? Do you want another part time MP with work...

Tharman has taken the first shot at the SDP that they were unprepared for the by election. That must be the truest of all the statements made so far.
