Abuse of power

Someone sent to me a list of happenings that he described as abuse of power. He said that the abuse is as bad as what happened during the Najib government in Malaysia.

Here are the abuses:

a) Appointing the PM’s wife to head the sovereign fund.
b) Keeping the remuneration of the PM’s wife as a secret
c) Introducing the GRC system
d) Introducing the reserved presidential system and qualifying a questionable candidate
e) Appointing a “non-independent” person as attorney general and auditor general
f) Passing a law to make a one person protest as an illegal assembly
g) Passing the fake news law to stifle dissent and criticism of government policy
h) Lack of transparency and accountability
i) Passing a law to stop foreigners to pass comments that “interfere in domestic politics” but allowing a pro-establishment foreigner to do so
j) Appointing people from a closed circle into positions of power
k) Continuing with the practice of the election commission and CPIB reporting to the prime minister
l) Questionable legal actions taken by PM against selected people

He used descriptions that are more colorful (e.g. cronies), but I have changed them to be more polite.

    Any party will declare all the above points will be fixed when they forms majority or form coalition?

    Besides fixing other problems in the system…

    Many foreigners only see the beautiful skyscrapers & infrastructures and praise the LJ G for doing a good job. These are things foreigners do not know until they become citizens and have their monies & interests being held as ransom.

  • Aren’t u for change?:

    TKL – more polite = polite politician = polite parliamentarian = donkeys same as many backbencher already there. How to how a robust debate when voices are muted with courtesy ; courtesy itself a deceptive ploy to skinny the magnitude of the problem .. shout like a lion if u must as long as u are honest and truthful ; scream like an eagle if u see abuses .. or have a cowed puppy’s tail .. how many more years of politeness do u want this to go on?

    Clonies are perfect exacting hammer as to an axe or a sickle ; or yu want soft tender loves . TKL a hallmark of a astute parliamentarian is one in a hurry for change .. not one who crawls forever

  • China Social Credit System:

    Reading China’s President Xi Jin Ping and his ‘Social Credit Ranking’ system that will be fully operational in the year 2020 now.

    It is about the monitoring of its people’s behaviour and ranking and rating them in its social credit system in every aspect of their life.

    Every aspect of their life…literally! If you get a bad social credit rating you can be barred from entering good university or getting a good job, etc, for example. Who does the rating? The CCP.

    From making himself ‘president for life’ and now this shit. Go read about it. Very scary.

    SEA better watch out for XI. Even more sinister than Mao! Trump could be the saviour the world had been waiting for.

    Last time China learn from SG but now….will SG learn and imitate China.

  • TruBlu:

    With FAKE NEWS LAW, THIS * LIST* WILL SURELY GROW * LOONGer*.

    More WHITE LIES will go undetected because FAKE NEWS LAW will work against TRANSPARENCY.
    REMEMBER Ah Long n his ministers only want to listen to the GOOD STUFFS.
    Anything that does not Sounds Good,Feels Good to these clowns would be taken as FAKE NEWS.

    From now onwards, the ministers can more freely call FLOODING as PONDING???

  • I like POGBA, hate POFMA:

    Imagine if that “pro-establishment foreigner” is a spy or a terrorist, what will become of sg?

    Abusing power to feed his greed of power and wealth will destroy sg in no time.

    What happened to RosNaj is actually God’s warning to HoLee but apparently they think they’re undefeatable and untouchable.

  • NotMyProblem:

    I ask Singaporeans, are you going to stop such abuses? Singaporeans are supposed to be smarter than Malaysians by comparison in the percentage of the number of University degrees holders.

    Malaysians could sense something wrong with 1MDB and immediately kick the culprit out. Now recovering all the losses.

    We laughed at Malaysians before, let’s stop Malaysians from laughing at us in the coming GE!

    Can we do that?

  • patriot of TUMASIK:

    So HOW ah??? Mr Tan???…may I make a suggestion, no doubt you are a TruBlu opposition with the people and Nation in your mind to LIVE a better life and NOT the EVIL brought & bought by a bast**d now dead…

    your chances of winning in an election are slim no offence meant…why NOT spend some money going to waste as you did in the PE election to PROMOTE the Oppositions of your choice???

    Provide the volunteers with food drinks and transport as most are dedicated but financially STRAPPED

    Carry on with your posting as some do make Good sense and FINALLY, we may see some daylight now that Yang is a quiet supporter(Financial & Moral) of the underdogs

  • Don't tell us what we know!:

    Tan Kim Lian – are you telling us things we do not already know? You don’t even dare to say it yourself instead you say “Someone sent to me a list of happenings that he described as abuse of power”. Are you related to CI?

  • Bobo:

    How about our CPF system, HDB system, MOM system, ICA system, media system and so on. The list is too long to go on. No matter what systems they created that were not benefiting the people, but 70% like them all. Seems like 70% abused the entire systems.

  • Use, fix & abuse:

    It’s a fake economy run by crony-capitalist government bleeding the poor sheeple to death, for a pigeon-hole to sleep in and some medicines to keep you toiling.

  • Uncle Tom:

    Anyhow raise revenue is also an abuse of power.

    For example, roads are funded by our road tax yet 90% of roads have been converted to paid street parking from as early as 7 am to 10 pm or the whole night.

    We have been violated by the government. Do we like getting violated? It looks like we may continue getting violated unless things change.
