MSM took 3 weeks to 'breakdown'?MSM took 3 weeks to 'breakdown'? Mainstream media took 3 weeks to state the obvious about MRT reliability! MRT statistics won’t restore public confidence? I refer to the article “Statistics alone won’t restore confidence in MRT” (thenewpaper, Aug 19). It states that “Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) economist and senior...

Heaven helps us Singaporeans if Halimah Yacob is elected PresidentHeaven helps us Singaporeans if Halimah Yacob is elected... To President Wannabe Halimah To Exercise Judgement on Second Key to our National Reserves, you NEED AT LEAST Financial Literacy, not to mention Economics learning! Judgement doesn't come from mere 'feelings' or 'gut feel' or 'instincts' or 'inspiration' or mere 'trust' whatsoever! Heaven helps us Singaporeans...

Gerald Giam pokes fun at Khaw Boon WanGerald Giam pokes fun at Khaw Boon Wan My experience yesterday evening on the MRT and this morning due to Downtown Line's 'signalling problem' (fare: $49). Is the media still 'unfairly magnifying' the problem of train breakdowns, Mr Khaw?" Why he never say anything today ah?   * Facebook post by Gerald Giam of the Worker's Party.    

47,000 have applied to become Uber or Grab drivers47,000 have applied to become Uber or Grab drivers In a Parliamentary reply early this month(1 Aug), Transport Minister Khaw revealed that LTA has received some 47,000 applications to become Uber or Grab drivers."LTA has received about 47,000 Private Hire Car Driver's Vocational Licence (PDVL) applications, and about 1,600 have been rejected. Applicants are rejected either...

Why workers are the second 'least engaged'?Why workers are the second 'least engaged'? I refer to the article “Singaporeans less happy with employers than global average: Poll” ( Straits Times, Aug 16). Employee engagement declined? It states that “It found that employee engagement here has declined consistently over the past three years, in stark contrast to the upward trend observed across the...

SMRT fare hikes but better and more reliable services?SMRT fare hikes but better and more reliable services? Today we Singaporeans faced another 40 minutes to 1 hour delay on the MRT. Why with all our smart millionaires ministers, nobody can solve this problem that has plagued Singapore since 10 years ago? Totally waiting for Khaw boon wan to emerge with a champion solution of raising MRT fares to raise standards. Look at what...

Infrastructure spending is more than 150 times social welfare spending?Infrastructure spending is more than 150 times social welfare... Should we reconsider spending more than 150 times more on infrastructure spending, than social welfare spending? I refer to the article “Major infrastructure projects over next decade will put Singapore economy on stronger footing: Lawrence Wong” (Straits Times, Aug 15). It states that “Singapore may look “built-up”...

Dr Chee: PAP is bankrupt of ideasDr Chee: PAP is bankrupt of ideas Lawrence Wong's announcement yesterday that the govt's major infrastructure projects to be implemented over the 10 years “will put the national economy on an even stronger footing” continues the depressing narrative that the PAP is bankrupt of ideas Already, economists have warned – and continue to warn – that...

Business closure (61,138 in 2016) increased 53%?Business closure (61,138 in 2016) increased 53%? I refer to the article “More firms closing amid tough economy” (Straits Times, Aug 14). It states that “The data showed a slight pickup in the cessation rate of companies in recent years, from 7.3 per cent in 2014 to 7.6 per cent in 2015 and further to 7.8 per cent last year.” 61,138 businesses closed last...

I regret voting for the PAPI regret voting for the PAP I used to be a moderate who would speak for the Government sometimes when there were PAP gaffes, because there are people I respect working their arses off on real issues under the ministries and the GICs. I also dislike how some far-left oppos quoted politicians out of context and offered populist, non-methodological solutions...

National Day: Labour data does not gel with the rhetoric?National Day: Labour data does not gel with the rhetoric? The labour statistics do not seem to gel well with the rhetoric? I refer to the article “Wages, jobs, productivity up but more work lies ahead: PM” (Sunday Times, Aug 13).

Singaporeans values MULTIRACIALISM and MERITOCRACY?Singaporeans values MULTIRACIALISM and MERITOCRACY? Singapore is ready to welcome it's Malay president in September, that is certain. This will be the first time in 47 years that Singapore will have a Malay president again, after Yusof Ishak. And to the presidential candidate Halimah Yacob, an affirmation of two core values Singaporeans hold dear: multiracialism and...

Nonsensical to say no need for by-electionNonsensical to say no need for by-election Section 49(1) of the Singapore Constitution makes it very clear that if a parliamentary seat has become vacant, the vacancy shall be filled by election. To me, that is all the answer we need to the question whether a by-election must be held in Marsiling Yew-Tee now that Halimah Yacob has resigned her parliamentary seat....

Are we or are we not a democracy?Are we or are we not a democracy? We are a democracy because: … no by-election will be called when a minority Member of Parliament resigns to stand for election as the President … the constitution has been amended such that, for the next presidential election – more than 99 per cent of the populace would not qualify to stand for election …...

Disgusting PAP flag beside Singapore's flag in Hougang during National DayDisgusting PAP flag beside Singapore's flag in Hougang during... I came across this disgusting sight. PAP Hougang continues to ignore the votes of Hougang residents and acts as if they rule the constituency even though they lost more than once. Why is the PAP flag being hung up beside the Singapore flag, especially here in Hougang? National Day is not PAP day, so why is this...

Despite their control over all domains in Singapore, the PAP can be toppled because of their gross incompetence.

Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar are attracting foreign investments...
