NS defaulters should be dealt with more severelyNS defaulters should be dealt with more severely I can never understand why there are still cases of people defaulting over their NS call ups. NS is not as tough and soul destroying as they used to be. Nowadays, new recruits are treated so well, I wonder if they eve know the meaning of tough training anymore. The High Court's act of raising the jail terms of three...

ST report: Halimah's father an Indian MuslimST report: Halimah's father an Indian Muslim In 2013, when Halimah Yacob was selected to be the new Speaker of Parliament after the former one, Michael Palmer, resigned from politics due to his marital affair with a PA woman, ST wrote an article to feature Halimah ('A strong advocate for workers, women and minorities', Jan 2013): In the article, it was revealed...

Taxis: Reduce road tax, but up diesel tax?Taxis: Reduce road tax, but up diesel tax? A friend who is a taxi driver told me that whilst the Budget announced a reduction in the road tax for diesel cars – at the same time it also raised the diesel tax. Does this mean that it helps those taxi drivers who park long hours at say RWS, but tax those who drive high mileage on the road more? First they removed...

Why merge only neigbourhood junior colleges?Why merge only neigbourhood junior colleges? I refer to the recent news about the 8 junior colleges being merged, which will lead to the closure of Jurong JC, Innova JC, Tampines JC and Serangoon JC. In the news, it was mentioned that MOE's rationale for doing this is "Falling birth rate" and "Changes in population demographics across different estates also result...

MRT improved: Meaningless statistics?MRT improved: Meaningless statistics? Reliability of MRT lines improves I refer to the article “Reliability of North-South and Circle MRT Lines improves; East-West Line maintains same standard” (Straits Times, Apr 24). It states that “In the year ending Q1, the NSL clocked an average of 180,000km before a delay lasting more than 5 mins, bettering...

SMRT sells Taxi business, staff how?SMRT sells Taxi business, staff how? Apparently, news have emerged over the weekend that SMRT is in talks with Grab to sell its taxi business. SMRT is the third largest cab operator, have been in the taxi market for 27 years, and is fully owned by Temasek Holdings. If even a government owned entity is to be sold to a private-hire operator, does this signal...

US, Aust, NZ clamp down on FTs working in their countries - but GraceFu wants to recruit foreigners 'to supplement' SingaporeansUS, Aust, NZ clamp down on FTs working in their countries... In the past 1 week, several first world countries have announced new policies to crackdown on giving working visas for foreigners to get jobs in their countries. US In US, BBC reported that President Trump has signed an executive order to review its H-1B visa programme which places foreign workers in high-skilled...

Time to tighten immigration rules is now!Time to tighten immigration rules is now! Over the past weeks, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. have all tightened their work visa programs for skilled foreigners. Australia scrapped its 457 visa for employer-sponsored skilled foreign labour program; U.S. President Trump announced a “Buy American, Hire American” Executive Order to review the H1-B visa which...

Why Temasek JC doing so badlyWhy Temasek JC doing so badly TJC used to be the top 5 until a few years back. So the general rankings were RI HCI VJ NJ TJ. TJ is one of the older JCs. It the oldest in the east at least. Celebrating its 40th year this year. Anyways, so VJ came in and kick TJ in the nuts and so TJ was 5th. Not too shabby. But then in 2012 or 2011, ACJC beat TJC...

Not bowing down to pressure but listening?Not bowing down to pressure but listening? Law Minister K Shanmugam said that how society feels about the punishment meted out in criminal cases has to be something the Government must pay heed to, but this does not equate to bowing to public pressure. In his own words, this is what he exactly said - “You enhance the penalty (for a certain law) to reflect...

HDB youtube video: 340k views – smart or stupid?HDB youtube video: 340k views – smart or stupid? I refer to the 4 minutes and 8 seconds youtube video “How much HDBs really cost in Singapore” – “Buying your first apartment can be daunting, but with clever planning, a 4-room BTO flat in Sembawang wouldn’t even require any payment upfront. Here’s a crash course on how you can pay the least possible amount...

Mergers of JCs exposes PAP's poor education policy planning?Mergers of JCs exposes PAP's poor education policy planning? If you put aside that the merging 8 JCs are good neighborhood JCs and none are elites where ministers school their children, something is not right if you let the information sink in. Eunoia JC just started in 2017. Which means to say before they start Eunonia JC, the Ministry would have at least 16 years of birth rates...

HDB: To buy or not to buy, that is the question?HDB: To buy or not to buy, that is the question? To buy an old HDB or not? I refer to the article “To buy an old HDB flat or not, that is the question” (Straits Times, Apr 16). It states that “What of the public policy perspective?
