Some thoughts on AHTC and AIM

Maybe the Aljunied Hougang Town Council should be asking why did the common multi-million dollar management system developed at taxpayers expense get sold for a pittance to a $2 dollar company (AIM) suddenly set up by 3 former PAP MPs (and subsequently closed with no idea of who now owns the software), and then get withdrawn from use of non PAP councils forcing a whole new system to be developed by a new managing agent and paid for in a hostile environment where nobody else wanted the job?

That, it seems, would explain the root of this whole civil case, and has led to the confusion and questions of responsibility for any additional expense incurred.

At the same time maybe the Ang Mo Kio Town Council can explore how much they overpaid on contracts awarded by one of their former general managers Wong Chee Meng who was recently found guilty of actual criminal corruption in his case. And perhaps they could see who in that Town Council may have not carried out their fiduciary duties properly and are thus liable to compensate them for that or go after the contractors for compensation. After all, the contractors involved had to recover the cost of their bribes and make profits on their fraudulent awarded jobs right?

If they are genuinely at fault that is all well – but there are many unanswered questions and the word “fix” hangs unspoken in the air without clarifications to the contrary forthcoming.

And we are supposed to have unquestioning trust and faith in our government?

  • I don't need PAPi anymore:

    I am writing PAPi off, definitely 100%.

    Just now at the market, I saw a private company sonoko power agent selling Electricity much cheaper than SP. I was wondering, just why do I need this PAPi government when small power seller can be even cheaper than them. So, what is PAPi government actually for, why do I need them? Isn’t they legalize using machine gun on own citizen assembly when even assembly of 1 is illegal? Anything they touch either run to the ground [NOL] or become more expensive [Public Transport].

    It’s too dirty and cannot be trusted anymore. Better stop now before everything spearheaded to the worse.

    They got it all WRONG. They existed because they appeared to be white before. And now they are black and dirty. I don’t need them anymore.

    I begin to worry if even the Erection system is black, that day will be darker than HK.

  • Trap within Trap within Trap:

    It’s a trap within a trap within a trap. Blow after blow after blow, all carefully lined up. The machine guns on one side, the arty raining down, missiles left and right and mines on every escape road, all AIMING TO KILL.

    There is no way to escape once you fall in.

    It is a brutal relentless assault on the rivals and the supposedly repenting.

    So horrible, horrible, horrible!

    What is even more horrible is that the audience is cheering against the defenceless victims.

    Decent people, please migrate for a better life, for your and your family’s future.

    TCs lost millions with their failed gambling in Lehman Bros fiasco, but not one in the TC was accountable.
    Goes to show who is actually running the TC, and how is it that public funds are used for these dubious investment and not one of the PAPIGS MP has been pointed out and admit their incompetence.

    Whole thing stinks to the high heavens! What’s the point of “fixing” the “weak” opposition when the whole nation is fast descending into economic irrelevance & eventual chaos!

    James Dyson cancelling his EV project was a huge body blow to the PAP govt! Thousands of future manufacturing jobs for the S’pore factory were written off in a stroke! The funny question was that the cancellation came after Dyson had bought 2 pricey properties in S’pore; one was a landed housing which needed govt approval! Did James Dyson “played” the PAP govt simply for his BREXIT strategy (capital flight) or what?

    So much energy, time & the State resources spent on “fixing” the hapless Worker’s Party but at whose expenses? Frankly, the Worker’s Party aren’t a real threat but an imaginary one. Aljunied-Hougang GRC was won not on Worker’s Party strengths but on the backlash against PAP’s Foreigner Influx Policy circa 2004-2011. This is a dominant political party fighting against it’s own shadow (stupid policies)!

    Frankly, the present-day PAP govt wasted considerable time, energy & resources on the wrong things eversince Donald Trump was elected POTUS in the 2016 US Presidential Election where the PAP govt picked on the wrong candidate. Since then, it was a littany of woes:
    * TPP was written off by Trump;
    * China’s BRI strategically omitted S’pore;
    * Trump reversed Globalisation;
    * US-China trade war begins in 2019; &
    * Emerging threat of recession & economic slowdown.

    Yet at the same time, the PAP govt was embroiled in:
    * Minority Representation for Elected President where an ethnic Indian became Malay;
    * 38 Oxley Road accusations by PM’s siblings & Parliamentary “Wayang” show;
    * POFMA drama circus; &
    * 2019 URA MasterPlan & 2019 ND Speech on Greater Southern Waterfront Development – emphasis on great Infrastructural Spending & expanding housing units at a time when the Global Economy is on the brink.

    And where is the leadership shown when leadership was required? And nobody in the land can recognised the precarious situation of S’pore! Even cavemen & cavewomen in S’pore started to book condos oblivious to the Liquidity Crunch within the Global situation!

    S’pore is fast descending into the 5 ‘D’s’ – Depression, Death, Debts, Divorce & Disillusionment. No one seemed to decipher that S’pore’s lucky cycle has already passed some 2 decades ago – life will only get harder. People in S’pore were blind to the fact that their lives had deteriorated – housing space shrunk, food, essentials getting expensive & living & work space getting congested! And yet they still vote for PAP! Stupid or not?

    Very true but they still pay themselves a king’s ransom for such lousy work!

    I don’t need PAPi anymore: Anything they touch either run to the ground [NOL] or become more expensive [Public Transport].

    Harder to consider migration now! Doors are closing fast! Those considering it should act ASAP & not TKSS! The S’pore young are facing a genocidal future!

    Trap within Trap within Trap: Decent people, please migrate for a better life, for your and your family’s future.

    Australia Shires (equivalent of TCs) also lost in Lehman fiasco but they took a class action suit against Lehman’s Administrators for some recovery. They went all the way to the Australia Supreme Court & got a huge award & compensation.

    Constrast to S’pore TCs who quietly wrote off amount without even trying! Isn’t the PAP govt a local bully yet a weakling overseas & on the International scene? Remember @ 2nd BRI, PM LHL & wife were made to stand far away from the main players ie. XJP & wife in BRI photo session on the front row! Brunei Sultan & Dr & Mrs Mahathir stood alongside with XJP!

    “Whole thing stinks to the high heavens! What’s the point of “fixing” the “weak” opposition”

    The current court against by AHTC against the Wayang Party’s MPs – Low Thia Khiang, Sylvia Lim & Pritam Singh is legally based & sound. Whether there’s an element that the PAPies’ effort to “FIX” them is not the issue.

    I venture to say that the Wayang Party MPs are too insignificant in terms of their performance in Parliament in the PAPies’ scheme to FIX them……..although the PAPies worry of their brand of s*ake oil politics which does sinkies NO GOOD AT ALL. Maybe you can show otherwise, since the Wayang party IBs have failed to do so, year after year.

    The emperor without clothes I believe is more interested to FIX those who could show out their incompetencies and failures.

    I disagree that the whole thing stinks in so far as the AHTC judgment following the trial is concerned. It is beyond doubt that the Wayang Party MPs – Low Thia Khiang, Sylvia Lim & Pritam Singh had failed in their duties as fiduciaries of the TC. This happened concurrently with their lack of integrity in the cleaning of the hawker centre in the TC.

    “James Dyson cancelling his EV project was a huge body blow to the PAP govt! Thousands of future manufacturing jobs for the S’pore factory were written off in a stroke!”

    In so far as the AHTC case is concerned Dyson’s abandoning of his EV project has absolutely no connection. I doubt if the Wayang Party could have done any better in terms of economic policies.

    I have stated that the Wayang Party MPs have failed to discharge their duties and responsibilities as MPs……….so far none of the Wayang Party MPs, nor their IBs have shown otherwise.

    Oh, by the way, AIM saga is not about failing to discharge the respective duties of the various PAP MPs. It was also NOT the case of enriching anyone, at least directly or pre-conceived, BUT as a means to frustrate the opposition taking control of the PAP TC, like the Aljunied GRC.

    So stop raising the AIM saga in this connection.

  • Rabble-rouser:

    @ Realistically:
    “Fixing” the opposition serves as a deterrent for any potential opposition candidates from arising to challenge the Status Quo. That is the “hidden” agenda. By raising the “price” of being opposition against the PAP politics! Much like the deposit required for standing in an election!

    But these deterrent limits competition which is a one-way path towards economic irrelevance & eventual collapse. How would you know what’s best if there’s no competition except for the same old, same old?

    And PAP’s similar economic management had created a crony capitalist economy (whose values align with their’s). Again, they fear Independent-minded successful businessmen who could threaten their existence through “funding” of alternate political candidates against the Status Quo. And that is their hidden fear! But a crony capitalist economy creates terrible wealth disparity & income inequality! And it limits consumer choices & limits alternatives through market concentration eg. NTUC Floodgate/Kopi Tiam Holdings. My sad observation!

    PAP’s fear of competition & artificial means of limiting & suppressing competition doesn’t serve the nation except for themselves. They only create their own Arrogance & Hubris! All talk about their equivalence to Private Sector high flyers’ pay levels were just mere talk! A big bully in a small pond but no presence in the greater ocean. Just look at the picture of the China’s 2nd BRI gathering of leaders tells a huge story!

    @ Realistically:
    But they are related! In a functioning democracy, it is the opposition part to scrutinise Foreign Investment Proposals by asking the “hard” questions!

    Don’t you find it strange that Dyson chose S’pore as his EV manufacturing plant when there are better candidates in the auto global supply chain eg. China, Thailand, even Malaysia? Such questions should have been asked in a fully functioning Parliamentary sessions!

    And the timing of the cancellation came after Dyson had bought 2 expensive properties in S’pore; one, a landed property which required govt approval! Dyson was a supporter for BREXIT but his actions belies a need to protect his UK wealth (£) through ploughing into the SG$ & parking it into S’pore Properties. Don’t you get the feeling that Dyson played the PAP govt like a fiddle?

    Did anyone at EDB analysed Dyson’s EV Proposal & brought out the inconsistencies to their bosses or are they too afraid of the consequences for “speaking out”? Isn’t the S’pore govt so hungry for Foreign Investments that they pull out all the stops without asking why?

    Even supporting a weak opposition like the Worker’s Party is preferable due to a non-functioning & non-participation political mechanism under PAP! They have to be allowed to grow into their roles! Otherwise, what is your alternative then?

    Would killing the Worker’s Party would solve your problem & your irrational hatred for the Worker’s Party? Or will there be worse problems for the future?

    We’re fast running out of options! I wouldn’t like to be around seeing the tragic end of S’pore under the PAP’s incompetent hands! Would you?

    PS. I never mentioned about AIM in any of my comments! In any case, it was a sour grapes move by losers “burning bridges” & “poisoning wells” ahead of the victorious party coming in to take over. What sort of maturity does the PAP have? Petty retributive acts & a vicious mentality without sparing a thought to the AHTC constituency they previously served.

    And Tommy Koh says S’pore is a 1st World Nation with a 3rd World Mentality. Hypocritical, don’t you think?
