    Lo$e bigLEE,so what?
    Not their money.
    If they lost their own money,its a different story.

    These ass-holes take our CPF money to gamble and when they lose,COLLECT MORE MONEY from us.

    We need decent Checks n Balance.

  • Bapak:

    Is there a game plan in the investment world that there is a World No. 1 SUCKER investor by the name of TamaSICK. Build up your portfolio nicely by professionals and after they have invested ‘run away’ with the money legally and close it down?

    Cause they know that the real sucker is not TamaSICK but the people of Sinkapore.

  • VTO for ACCOUNTS Check:

    Please Singaporeans, vote in 51/49 Oppo so that the accounts can be checked for our own good otherwise CPF may dragged further.

    Work for whole life, money cannot enjoy.
    May die stupid not knowing whether all the money ganna swinged.

    SIGNS OF SOMETHING WRONG

    1. President is selected instead of elected. Altering criteria until resulting only 1 candidate qualify. -> “DANGEROUS”

    2. Many Ministers Spouse hold Top Positions. -> “DANGEROUS”.

    3. Land sales revenues pumped in [MEGA BILLIONS $$$] over the many years but still no additional benefits to the People -> “DANGEROUS”

    4. Megga losses and tax hikes, hikes and hikes, GST increase etc… -> “PAINFULLY Dangerous”

  • Bobo:

    She could afford to lost whole Singapore that her father-in-law fought so hard for. Guess LHL has let loose of everything for his lover. 70% has to be responsible for the lost as well. Do you agree?

  • Shameless accountants:

    Singaporeans In General, By and large , never showed they want to know how much are lost given the lack of transparency.

    How can Singaporeans be considered smart?
    They are either ignorant , naive or timid.

    How to fight a war ?

    I feel ashamed as a citizen.

    Accountants and finance people are superstitious. Why ? They base on BELIEVING . Totally do not uphold their professional ethics and standards. Unquestioning.

    They contribute to the losses by their submissiveness.

  • clown pap group think:

    it is ok if pap clown runs gic and wife runs temasick for true welfare of 70% sheep. after all gic temasick belong to 70% sheep.

    it is NOT ok if pap clown runs gic and wife runs temasick like lky assets to be wasted on frivolous self whim activities. after all gic temasick do not belong to lky or his estate.

    worse because of lack of talent both pap clown and wife instead of giving 70% sheep a better living standard instead keep having to up GST to top up emptying coffer in gic temasick. and there is this pap PA which pap clown also chairs which secrets shall be exposed when New Government takes power.

  • NotMyProblem:

    @Phillip; How to recoup? Bro, that’s a trade secret! Can give you a hint, CPF and national Reserve. But must make sure the Malay President is from the Indian race will be an added advantage!

    How exactly it’s done, that will depend on how Singaporeans vote this GE! Malaysians got their chance to kick out the Official Numbor Satu and now they know what happened to the billion ringgit missing from 1MDB.

    You think Singapore voters are smarter?

  • UniQ:

    Wife Loose $$ due to habitual gambling, all the Ah Gongs ‘aka Ah Kongs and Ah Mahs’ pay for the loss…until their children and grand children cannot even take care of their minimum needs ?!?!

    $$ paid by Sinkies for these losses from high taxes, high public housing, almost zero retirement funds, Super HIGH medical bills, Super HIGH petrol prices, GST on basic needs as human beings : water, rice, flour, salt, sugar, electricity, etc…

    Yet Sinkies believe all the BS from the propaganda and occasional miserable titbits ‘$$’ to sweeten the ground, while they and their ties collecting Hundreds of Thousands to Millions annually

    How far can stupidity and ignorance can go fellow Sinkies ??

    Sigh…

    There are many cases where losses are announced intentional to cover corruption. So nobody will knows what exactly what happened.
