[Revisited] Honour rites still evolving; No formula for state funeral entitlement Honour rites still evolving; No formula for state funeral... The following is a reply given by the Prime Minister's Office on the 13 May 2010 to media queries: --- Mr Leong Sze Hian (Today, May 10) and Mr Goh Choon Kang (Lianhe Zaobao, May 12) have asked why the funeral arrangements for Mr Ong Teng Cheong and Dr Wee Kim Wee, both former presidents, were not the same. Mr...

Importing foreign players is an act of chickening outImporting foreign players is an act of chickening out We are not saying the “Foreign-born athletes” are not human. Rather, they land themselves in an unwelcome position: 猪八戒照镜子 - 里外不是人 (两面不讨好). We see them as "bought-in goods" and people in China see them as "traitors". In addition, there is a psychological hurdle for them - to be disloyal...

Why the issue of minority as president only now?Why the issue of minority as president only now? We've had four Presidential elections (of which two went uncontested). The issue of whether it was important for a minority Singaporean to become the Elected President did not once crop up. Not even when there were four Tans running for the post in the year 2011. So I can't help but view the recent call for a minority...

WP Silva Lim: President Nathan believed in SingaporeWP Silva Lim: President Nathan believed in Singapore It is with sadness that I learn of the passing of President SR Nathan. President Nathan has been a public servant practically all his life. He believed in Singapore, from the early days before independence when our survival was by no means guaranteed. My father had the privilege of working alongside him in the MID...

NDR 2016 Frightening Lacking in Ideas to Address Looming ProblemsNDR 2016 Frightening Lacking in Ideas to Address Looming... Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's speech at the National Day Rally last night was long on feel-good buzzwords but conspicuously short on ideas to navigate the perilous socio-economic landscape looming ahead. Apart from assuring Singaporeans that the “best is yet to come”, Mr Lee failed to tell the nation how the government...

Broken Lift since June in Holland Bukit-Timah Repaired only after MP's VisitBroken Lift since June in Holland Bukit-Timah Repaired only... During our rounds at the Holland-Bukit Timah GRC, we spoke to a resident who informed us that when he called the constituency's Town Council to find out when a broken-down lift would be repaired, he was advised to look for the sub-contractor responsible for the lift maintenance. According to the resident, the lift at...

Joseph Schooling being robbed?Joseph Schooling being robbed? In MSM, it was reported that Joseph Schooling will have to give 20% to the National Sports Association (is it Singapore Swimming Association?) but how has the association contributed to his remarkable success? Schooling's previous and future training / development is done overseas at his own expense so it will be deem...

Dr Chee wishes PM Lee a speedy recoveryDr Chee wishes PM Lee a speedy recovery I was just informed that Mr Lee Hsien Loong had experienced a breakdown while giving his National Day Rally speech and couldn't continue. He had to be helped off the stage. Mei and I wish him well and a speedy recovery. Our thoughts are with him and his family.   * Facebook post by Dr Chee Soon Juan

Why are the opposition parties not arguing about TPP?Why are the opposition parties not arguing about TPP?  We are at the Memorandum stage when the US are arguing the TPP in their govt why are we quiet.  Now the full documentation is finally release because US opened it because of no choice why are we no debating on it in Parliament. The problem with TPP is: 1) It will not create new jobs, as trade free up it will open...

Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss: NMPs are believersJeannette Chong-Aruldoss: NMPs are believers NMPs are Believers - they believe that the system is fundamentally sound but needs tweaking here and there, and that the Govt is basically good though not perfect. If one is a Believer, then words of assurance will suffice. But not for one who is a Cynic, who sees the system as one designed to entrench incumbents and...

Today is the day you touched down in Singapore after winning Singapore's first Olympic gold medal. We all watched you with bated breath. You poured your heart out in that pool. You gave it your all, & it stirred something, deep in the hearts of every...

PAP's Chee: Workers' Party MPs and NCMPs were full of sound and fury but no substancePAP's Chee: Workers' Party MPs and NCMPs were full of sound... I was struck by two different approaches to debate that I witnessed in Parliament earlier this week, when both WP and a group of NMPs raised objections to the Administration of Justice (Protection) Bill. The WP MPs and NCMPs were full of sound and fury. Even after the Law Minister clarified the government’s position...

470k NAC Bin Center is acceptable despite AGO's damning report?470k NAC Bin Center is acceptable despite AGO's damning report? 4 times the AGO Report emphasised that the fees paid to the consultants were "exceptionally high". Yet, the minister says the costs (fees) paid were "acceptable". What's the AGO Report for, if ministers can disregard it and make their own pronouncements? When they overpay, oh it's OK. It's "acceptable". Just ‪#‎ownselfsayownselfnowrong‬...
