PA Closed Door ‘Kopi Talk’

I refer to the latest Kopi Talk conducted by PM Lee behind the closed doors of PA about a fortnight ago 10 Things PM Lee Said About Multiracialism, Terrorism, And Reserved Presidency At The PA Kopi Talk.

Before PM Lee asks us to accept the present imbalanced system of appointments of the Heads of the various Civil Service and Judiciary, we must closely examine whether the following are indeed done “meritocally”.

1. Tin Pei Ling and her Perm Sec husband, who by the way, rejects most of the letters she writes on behalf of residents
2. Dr Ng Eng Hen and his SingHealth Group CEO wife Ivy Lim Swee Lian
3. Heng Swee Keat and his NHB CEO wife Chang Hwee Nee
4. Teo Chee Hean and his NTUC Director wife Chew Poh Yim, he had also personally handed out a PSC scholarship to his son, Teo Eng Siang
5. Grace Fu and her BLC Solutions CEO hubby, Ivan Lee Boon Hong. BLC is a spin off company from A*Star
6. Josephine Teo and her CEO Surbana Jurong first gentleman
7. The Ng brothers, Minister Ng Chee Meng, Perm Sec Ng Chee Khern and CPF CEO Ng Chee Peng
8. The Chan siblings, Ambassador Chan Heng Chee, SPH CEO Alan Chan and Senior Advisor Chan Heng Wing of MFA
9. Juthika Ramanathan, CEO Office of the Chief Justice, favourite daughter of late S R Nathan

Last but not least and the greatest of them all, PM Lee Hsien Loong and his CEO Temasek wife!

Hope the PSC Chair, Lee Tzu Yang can help explain these “meritocratic” appointments or risk being reduced to another mere rubber stamping white elephant Institution. This is not Meritocracy, its merry making in an Aristocracy!

  • Malaysia boleh Singapore bodoh:

    According to the book “Living With Myths in Singapore” One of the 3 myths in Singapore is meritocracy. The other two are vulnerability and development.

    Another compelling reason for REGIME CHANGE.

    Aristocracy is a crazy … A system of Government ruled by the elite.

    Besides Machiavelli , the Prince. The other book is the Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes. It justifies Monarchy and Aristocracy. Read the book reviews and then we can understand Singapore.

    Clowns tell jokes to amuse and entertain.

    A circus makes you forget reality and takes your money

    Do not take them too seriously, or you will not be able to cope with reality.

    The precedent has set by Mr.Charles Chong of Ponggol East. It is now free for all, can sue until pants dropped, using residents’ $$$.

  • Rabble-rouser:

    The article actually wrote about the grassroots’ feedback of the ground’s unhappiness over the recent reserved presidency, PM Lee admitted that this was an issue they foresaw almost 25 years ago. Yet his admission highlighted a glaring deficiency & growing weakness of the PAP.
    But what I don’t understand was that in those 25 years, the PAP did absolutely nothing to create social mobility ladders & enough affirmative actions to upgrade the Malay community. And to add insult was that they made a reserved appointment of an ethnic “Indian” President instead of an ethnic “Malay” President & then announced her as “Malay” to the Public. This was due to a shortage or lack of qualified Malay candidates which were of PAP’s own making. It exposes the poor social management & deficient administrative skills of the PAP to uplift the disadvantaged & minority races. Short of making the Public seemed like retards & intellectually challenged to cover their own incompetence! Sounds to me like desperate measures of a desperate govt unable to grasp the consequences of their past policies as they seek to capture more power in an increasingly tulmultous future!

  • outside of clown pap:

    when Mr Jeyaretnam talked about beholdenness of then cj to then lky, everyone knew he was talking truth. as with all things beholding asians, beholdenness exists but is very hard to prove, especially when the beholden and the beholding both agree not to talk about it.

    such beholdenness is passed down the clown pap chain. via abusing resources in gic temasick NTUC pap PA and such. if any clown pap member is loyal, toes the line, then, a lucrative S$m position in gic temasick NTUC pap PA and such. to ensure no outside intervention, pap clown himself chairs gic pap PA, pap clown wife runs temasick, and the obedient ones run NTUC and such.

    pap clown members justify their S$m pay via a pliant parleeement who rubber stamped the S$m approving process, to make what is questionable into legal.

    if you sink NOL, no problem. another bite of S$m cherry at sph. if you ruin smrt, no problem. another bite of S$m cherry at sia. if you waste S$ billions in AStar, no problem. as long as remain loyal, can continue to collect S$m loyalty pay and bonus.

    but the fact is, outside clown pap, many of the current S$m folks NOT many of them can even S$600k per year, the peanuts wage mentioned by wooden goh chock tong wife. and by wooden goh chock tong definition, these below S$600k peanuts wage are mediocre since they are NOT S$m.

    outside clown pap, many of the current arse lickers and balls suckers are unqualified even for the peanuts wage. PERIOD.

  • Singapore Fooled Again n Again:

    QUOTE “PAP “OWNS” the people an EXPLANATION !!!!!”

    Do you think they need to explain? Singaporeans have given the White a mandate to run the country every few years but they they overlord over everything, cover and sweep their deeds as if nothing happened, pay themselves sky-high. Spending times not on improving the life of Singaporeans but finding all wats to fix opposition parties and silent dissidents.

  • Why Closed Door?:

    If the session is attended by ‘kaki lang’, then open or closed door makes
    no difference!

    The problem is when such surveys are conducted, it is usually a ‘pro’ crowd that is invited.

    Why don’t you random pick an audience instead of getting members from PA?

    You will never get fair and accurate ground feedback from ‘kaki lang’.

    Don’t waste time, small bites and refreshments for such an audience!
