Gan is a perfect example of the PAP’s type of ‘meritocracy’

How many months of performance bonuses did Gan Kim Yong get in the past few years for his “outstanding” leadership helming the Ministry of Health (MOH) and his ability to keep this HIV data leak from the public for so long?

If this incident still cannot wake you up to PAP’s level of incompetency and irresponsibility at the highest level, then probably nothing else will!

When important sensitive medical data has been leaked, the basic responsibility of any government should be to inform the affected patients as soon as possible, and offer them useful counseling and all possible help. After all, these data were leaked under their incompetent watch.

However, what happened at MOH under the hopeless PAP Minister Gan was the complete opposite. They kept quiet for two years and pretended as though nothing had happened until those patients’ information appeared on the internet.

Only then did they admit to the lapses and started practising their “I am Sorry” script once again. Does Gan really believe that he could keep those affected HIV patients in the dark forever – or at least until he and his boss have retired and enjoying their millions and let the future government carry their baby?

Next, out of that 14,200 patients whose information were accessed and stolen, 8,800 of them were foreigners. The numbers are very scary, especially for a small country like Singapore. I ask if the PAP government is so seriously retarded and/or sleeping until they have no idea that we have so many HIV infected foreigners living, studying and working in our midst?

If only 10% of them have had sexual intercourse with Singaporeans, the consequences could be devastating and much, much more.

I am sure that his boss – labelled as a ‘dishonourable son’ by his own siblings – is aware of this HIV leak. If he doesn’t, that would be even worse. So, why didn’t Gan get the sacked or at the very least, transferred out from MOH?

    HIV is one brought in by the FTs & FWs…what about Tuberculous or TB which was eradicated in the 60s now back with a VENGENCE with a strain that is very resistant to modern medicine???

    And…God alone KNOWS what else with these Foreigners getting Health Certificates from their country of origin which can be EASILY BOUGHT like the Uni Degrees

    Don’t expect anything to happen to NG and Gan for now that’s for sure. Make them lose a few more GRCs and both will be demoted to MPs like Wong who cannot sing and shorty horse face Mah.

    Time for yet another pay cut!

    Just ask any outpatient at SGH waiting for 4 hours to see a doctor on any given day.

    Or else you can ask those who are waiting 6 months to see a specialist – provided they live that long….

    Yes, he wanted to know the psyche of Singaporeans, why SG voters keep voting for idiots into parliament.

    It was said “Idiot politician is not the problem, the problem is idiot voters keep voting them in”.

    Also he wanted to know how clean are the brains of Singaporeans. The hacker wanted to know was there any gray matter inside Singaporeans’ brain or just empty.

    He may even wanted to make a cure for stupidity just for Singaporeans.

    No. They want to check if ministers, MPs, senior civil servants, intelligence operatives, rich businessmen and women, etc have VD, lumpah removal, HIV, etc so they can be blackmailed.

  • LIONS:

    meritocracy?

    wtf! it is really meritoCRAP$y???

    CRAPPY PAP$TERS paying themselves crazy salaries in the millions for crappy performance?

    SG N sgs need the likes of DR GOH KENG SWEE and his proteges like HON SUI SEN.

    THEY WERE TRUE LIONS fighting for other lions and we all revere them and remember them most fondly.

    no one is perfect but ppl like dr goh and those he cultivated were sgs of the best quality and SPIRIT OF SERVICE.

    They took PUBLIC SERVICE AS SERVING THE NATION N NOT FOR CHASING AFTER $$$.

    I stronlgy suggest greedy PAP$ters reconsider to join the REAL PRIVATE SECTOR AND PROVE THEY ARE WORTH WHAT THEY THINK THEY ARE WORTH INDEED?!

    Make it tops like peter lim n tan min laing and not some govt related companies with cushy jobs after retirement or stepping down?

    scholars/ministers have the most savings amongst sgs and the BEST CONNECTION(GUANG-XI),so,what are they hesitating for?

    only know how to tell poorer sgs to become entrepreneurs but shy away themselves?

    they never put their money where their BIG MOUTHS ARE?!

    May Gan’s children meet one or more of those HIVers residing within SGP, esp in his posh neighborhood.
    And may they fall in love. And express such love in the raw.

    May the virus love the Gans!

    Please explain why Hep C deaths were not revealed in a timely manner. I don’t believe you were not verbally informed or discussed when it took place. Like in any trades when something happens the news spread like wild fire. I hope you reveal now before it is revealed at a later time.

    @ xthene

    Gan might even be actually better than some others. My reliable informed source said some others fall FAR FAR SHORT of performance expected. If you don’t believe me, try this for your awareness of reality – write to a Minister on any non-political issue of public interest concern or policy matter, don’t be surprised your passionate polite most respectful intensely researched representations meet with THE SILENT TREATMENT.

    No acknowledgement whatsoever or notice that your subject-matter raised is re-directed to a bureaucrat to look into it – YOU JUST GOT THE SILENT TREATMENT, YES SILENT TREATMENT as if the petitioner is a ghost. Or is the powerful addressee afraid of responding for imagined fear that he/she is taking “ownership” of a subject-matter once he/she or the relevant Ministry replies.

    How do solve national problems like this?

    YOU WONDER WHY THIS COUNTRY IS IN SUCH A SORRY MESS NOW.

    WHAT IS THE VALUE OF NATIONAL CONVERSATION TRUNCATED INTO SILENCE and its recent repeat call for resuscitation from dead oblivious silence when actual ministerial responses to national issues, in some but not all instances, raised by active citizenry is totally ignored?

  • guan_ah:

    It is well known fact that those in charge designated by the PAPs are given wide powers and tonnes of $$$ but zero responsibility. I supposed once he said “sorry”, he expects the entire Singapore is going to accept and forgive and end of story. Gan has left a mess for his successor in the MOM. xthene asked if any credible opp party member can take over his place, the answer is a rounding YES, one does not have to look far. Competent candidate need not only come from opp party, it can be a professional who dares to take on the job, salary as well as accountability.. this is not rocket science..
    This incident of leaks, happened years ago and is only made public years later and god knows what damage he had caused to those affected ? Has xthene ever paused and thought about this dire consequence faced by those who were affected and cannot, for obvious reasons plea for help ?

  • Plp loyalty n obligations:

    Any one who has worked with a king plp, one would know what r his loyalty n obligations. His loyalty n his obligations r his self gratification. His loyalty to the lp he is poing seems and thought by the lp to be real n binding but in fat when the lp is not in a position to pay for its poing, bootlicking, brownnosing, feeding on the farts or ball carrying n would shifting his target to a new source which can feed him.
    With such characteristics, u can see how weird is its smile when he comes face to face with his lp or fart source, its totality in agreeing with disgusting ptaises for whatever the lp or fart source says or does even the most stupid thing. Those attending to the lp at the British state dinner when the lp displayed his ignorance of satire n joke iwhen he related what he thought was such an entertaining joke of imstant pork soup from Shanghai taps n free smoke on opening Beijing windows would see how his plps lighted up with pride n crony head nodding of support when the British who have read abt the satire expressed facial disgust which deepened as the lp acknowledged he plagiarised from the PRC citizens.
    As the power shifts but the main control still with the old lp, the plps splits on speculation o the who would be the best providers, the old or the successor. Now the plp population is split three ways the dead lp but speculation that his influence lingers but this will continue to decline, the loyalty shift from dead to the new lp plus those recruited by the small lp n the third ogroup the gorilla’s own breed. Perhaps it is the dwindling but still controlling n dead lp provider sources that the sibling feud is reducing to wayanging in Parliament n not in Court of Laws. Perhaps the dunasty claim is really related to gorilla harem of pips to seat warmed for little rude slippered gorilla. Perhaps this link to smothered out the old dynasty will v3 successor instead of v4 stenched with the hairy foul.
    Anyone interested to find out more breeding plps or fart worms sex depending, you may follow the dead lp recommendation of Confucius teaching esp those unselected lots.

  • Plp loyalty n obligations 2:

    One more thing abt plp assigned by the lp to gather more credits in current topical operation such as cable car collapse, committees etc headed by junior plp. His dedication is just meant for show n not really committing to do the work which can be diligently done by rookies plps or by unsuspecting nonplps till well into the projects. When the project ends, the wayanging plp will wayang abt his great contribution to the project buth in reality he practically did nothing n fakes confirmed as facts by the lesser plps.

    Those seniors working with these plps before, if given a chance when all the plps n fart worms are eliminated would feel be glad to see those rewarded n going higher as greed mounts get what should come to them.

  • guan_ah:

    With Gan’s latest explanation in the parliament, he should be sacked. Everyone, including company CEO makes judgment call everyday, be it business risks, decisions. Doctors make judgment call while prescribing medicines. Government ministries are no exception. Gan is making very obvious attempt to shed and to share his responsibilities to his subordinates, his people working in MOH. This is blatantly obvious that he is evading his responsibilities. He should be removed at once, for the sake of Singapore national interest. Such incompetent minister will continue to do harm to Singapore. I just pray and hope that none of the affected HIV persons whose data had been leaked would commit suicide or lose their job which feeds their family. If it happens, it is Gan who forced him to commit the suicide simply because he made a very seriously “wrong” judgment call – a very poor and untenable excuse. Suing MOH ?? Those affected may not even have the money to engage lawyers, let alone sue….
