Even star TOC columnist thinks the PAP way

What’s the assumption behind this for Ghui, star columnist for TOC?

it is important to note that Heng will have a sharp learning curve. Unlike PM Lee and former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong, Heng has not spent years waiting in the wings. He only entered politics in 2011 and was made a minister immediately after his win at the general elections in 2011. With only 7 years or so under his belt and without the benefit of having spent years as a member of parliament (MP), does Heng have all the experience necessary to lead the country?

That’s right, she, like the PAP, believes that S’pore must have experienced leaders and political succession must be planned and managed. She seems to like the Chinese way, juz the the PAP.


“Why CCP’s fears are PAP’s fears”

Keeping power in a one-party state

———————————————————————————–

Bit strange this because going by her other articles, she’s a progressive (not an ang moh tua kee) that believes that S’pore should be a liberal democracy.

Well in the Western liberal democracies, it isn’t a given that the government is always led by experienced, tested leaders.

Look at the US: Obama and then Trump became presidents with no prior experience in government. Along the way, they beat people with plenty of experience of govt (think Hilary Clinton).

And there’s France’s Macron.

And the UK’s PM is a great example of an experienced minister proving to be a useless leader.

As to succession being planned and managed, the whole purpose of meaningful elections in a liberal democracy, is that the Opposition, can become the govt. Managed change? What managed change? Two of the most successful govts in the UK this century came only after long periods in opposition (Labour 1997-2010 and Conservative/ Lib Dem 2010- 2015). There were practically no ministers who had previous ministerial experience.

My point is that the PAP has been in power so long that their Hard Truths are accepted uncritically by their critics or opponents, even those, who like Ghui, think. The anti-PAP cybernuts like the alcohol drinking, pork-eating, religious “bapak” from TREland or Terry’s Indian goons are even bigger believers in Hard Truths. They only want to their snouts, not the PAP ministers in the troughs.

    COMICAL INVESTORS GOT IT ALL WRONG AGAIN – PAPpys HARD TRUTHS are FART LIES instead. Good example is don’t sell “YOUR” HDB, it will rise forever in value.You “owns” the public housing you paid for because

    - you are in possession of it and
    - you keep the profit from its sale.

    The incomprehensible puzzle is that someone sold his “private” property to his brother or blood relative BUT AFTER STILL WANTS TO DECIDE what that brother/blood relative wants to do with that after the aforesaid sale.

    The brother/blood relative – who imaginatively or presumably owns the sold property – is said at law to “possess” that property BUT MYSTERIOUSLY CAN’T BE ALLOWED BY LAW TO DECIDE of either sublet to another to live in on whatever terms mutually agreed between the leasor and the tenant or demolish it or sold it for a profit or loss to another party that entirely at his sole discretion of the said purchaser.

    The deal sounds like “you owns its, now you don’t”

    HDB is also like that. When the ghostly “owner” sells his residual lease to another, the “owner” don’t surrender his transfer document to the new buyer, but instead surrender it to the “leasor” (HDB) instead.

    How can HDB still be the lawful leasor it allegedly no longer owns according to PAPpys law advice AFTER IT HAD SOME IT TO ANOTHER ENTITY? My thoughts is that no one can lease a property he/she does not own to another except in circumstance of fraud at law. The last buyer didn’t bought the resale HDB from HDB but from the current “owner” of the lease.

    THIS IS HARD TRUTHS INCOMPREHENSIBLE.

    Is Comical Investor unleashing another fart of fiction?

    Ooops, typo error there, sorry. The paragraph below

    oxygen: How can HDB still be the lawful leasor it allegedly no longer owns according to PAPpys law advice AFTER IT HAD SOME IT TO ANOTHER ENTITY?

    should be read as

  • problem of pap PA paid IBs:

    didn’t read above post.

    never read anything by pap or by pap PA or by pap PA paid IBs.

    also never let byte space go to waste. so pen the following TRUTH.

    now that Dr Tan CB is heading PSP to topple clown pap, pap PA IBs very active in Internet throwing cold water.

    actually, the pap PA is wasting taxpayer money in that all the pap PA paid IB postings we never read so we are never conned.

    only gripe is why they keep coming to TRE when over and over and over again we tell these pap PA paid IBs we never read the BS they write?

    @ Patriot of TUMASIK

    COMICAL IS SWIMMING IN A CESSPOOL OF SEWAGE when he wrote this.

    Comical Investor :Look at the US: Obama and then Trump became presidents with no prior experience in government. Along the way, they beat people with plenty of experience of govt (think Hilary Clinton).

    Obama was already a senator in Illinois before he outclassed Hilary Clinton in the primary.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barack_Obama

    Hilary tried again against Trump but by then she was already “damaged” goods.

    Comical Investor was pulling a ripple from the puddle the size of a 1 cent piece in sweeping generalization and layered that with falsity of his invention.

    @ patriot of TUMASIK rightly caught the devil at work of his USUAL mischief in TRE.

If it is only the MMinistr justification n not PAP declaration, then should Minister be brought b4 PAP disciplinary n appropriately charged unless her also party’s
    If it is party. has this be passed to gorm pzrt of laws on conflict of interest?If not shouldn”tthe n CJ advise the President to bring charges against PAP for irregularly
