The statistics behind the National Day Rally speech?The statistics behind the National Day Rally speech? I refer to the article “As it happens: National Day Rally 2017” (Channel NewsAsia, Aug 20). It states that “Speaking in Malay, PM Lee said he’s glad that more Malay children are now attending pre-school. The Government is raising the quality of pre-schools and keeping them affordable, he said, adding that...

Dr Tan Cheng Bock on dismissal of his EP challenge appealDr Tan Cheng Bock on dismissal of his EP challenge appeal As you know by now, the Court of Appeal has dismissed my appeal. I am disappointed, as are all my supporters, because we had hoped to contest in this PE (through the deliberative track) after I lost narrowly (0.34%) in PE 2011. Nevertheless, I am very comforted to know that many of you were strongly supporting me in this...

Install over-weight warning on MRT trains?Install over-weight warning on MRT trains? To be honest, I guess many already knows why our MRT keep breaking down. Our MRT was designed back in SG golden era of about 2 million people, now it is already three times that population and it will still keep raising. Overcrowding is one thing that most even I also agree that the train keeps failing. For any tom,...

Elder Singaporeans must work till we die?Elder Singaporeans must work till we die? It was interesting that our PM, in his National Day Rally speech, decided to highlight 70-year-old Teo Yoke Lan, who delivers meals on an e-bike for UberEats around the Central Business District area. PM Lee said she did this to keep herself fit and able to make a living at the same time. Her efforts are definitely to...

Warship incident addressed but SMRT?Warship incident addressed but SMRT? Singapore's favourite Minister Khaw Boon Wan has finally broken his silence and emerged from hiding to make a statement about the accident involving a US navy warship and a commercial oil tanker in the Singapore Straits. Despite Singaporeans enduring almost two weeks of incessant MRT breakdowns, our dear Minister...

Reserved election 'to guard against social inequity'?Reserved election 'to guard against social inequity'? I refer to the article “Reserved presidential elections another stabiliser in Singapore’s political system: ESM Goh Chok Tong” (Sunday Times, Aug 20).

Who is the smartest and most capable minister in Singapore?Who is the smartest and most capable minister in Singapore? Probably a controversial question with all the government hate around here but well, you can't deny the SG government isnt pragmatic and capable in what they do. So just to be objective for once, which current minister do you think would probably be the most smartest, or capable, person in the government body right now?...

PM Lee Follows SDP's Lead on Pre-School EducationPM Lee Follows SDP's Lead on Pre-School Education In his National Day Rally last night, PM Lee Hsien Loong outlined the Government's plan to upgrade pre-school education in Singapore. He cited three key areas that the Education Ministry would look into: making sure more children have access to pre-school education, upgrading the profession of pre-school educators,...

Lim Tean: PM's NDR speech shows PAP is cluelessLim Tean: PM's NDR speech shows PAP is clueless I never thought I would see the day when the Prime Minister of Singapore would give as banal a speech as he gave tonight.

Wrong for SMRT to continue accepting fares when they are having breakdownsWrong for SMRT to continue accepting fares when they are... 18th August morning, there was a major MRT train disruption. However, SMRT still deducted my fare as per normal. It is my sincere belief that it is totally wrong for SMRT to continue to charge fares from commuters while they are having breakdowns. They should not be charging a single cent as long as their services are...

SMRT still struggling to solve problems plaguing NSL? SMRT still struggling to solve problems plaguing NSL? SMRT is struggling to pinpoint and rectify the cause of the signalling fault that is continuing to beset the NS Line. The hopeless PTO has posted two Twitter updates notifying commuters to "plan ahead" due to "longer traveling time." : Our engineers are working hard to continue their checks and investigations. Our staff...

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...

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.
