PMDs and the naked incompetency of the PAP government

Through changes in policies towards PMD-use over the past week, PAP’s incompetence is now showing live to a full audience. Needless to say, I am enjoying the show.

From the beginning until now, the whole government rhetoric and policies on PMDs is nothing short of a spectacular fiasco at the national level.

Starting with a ‘car-lite society’ aspiration to plugging the first and last mile theory, to compulsory registration of PMDs, to fire hazard concerns, to surrendering unauthorised models for $100, to compulsory switching to UL 2272 model, to baning riding on footpaths!

The latest in the developing PMD saga is that the government has come out with a $7 million grant to give to PMD riders who still want to remain in their jobs to give up their pmds in exchange for either $600 or $1000 ‘grant’ to switch to bicycles or e-bikes.

Wow! That was quite a bit of work done hor. I won’t be surprised if some people decide to make a motion picture out of it.

Despite the huge political salaries and bonuses that they know how to pay themselves using our hard-earned taxes, this is exactly the sort of high level stupidity and incompetency.

It is, by now, so clear and so obvious to so many people that the PMD issues are too big for Minister Lam Pin Min to handle. I ask why is the PAP transport minister Khaw Boon Wan still remaining so silently? Why is he still not showing his face, displaying his ministerial calibre and ability and saving his millionaire colleague from drowning in embarrassment?

As a patriotic Singaporean, I hate to say this but our 4G political leadership is a wash-out! A far, far cry from the ability, competency and leadership of the old guard ministers. Younger Singaporeans may not understand enough but older Singaporeans who have lived through the leadership era of the old guard ministers will know.

God save us.

  • HDB flats depreciate to ZERO:

    Government/PAP fumbled its way through the PMD issue before giving up and just banning it. Laughable. This is just another good reason to vote for regime change at the coming GE.

  • Stupid is as stupid does:

    The hero now reaches the Imperial guard of the evil Emperor, and decides to express an epic line:
    “My ancestors are smiling at me, Imperial. Can you say the same about yourselves?”

    To which the Imperial responds:
    “No, I’ve never met your ancestors, why would they smile at me?! Let me check with his highness…”

  • Have to Stop it:

    Someone could profit from all the surrendered PMDs. Say 100,000 expensive PMDs sold to neighboring countries, sold for a profit of $200 each = $20 millions profited.

    But ultimately, the $7 million dollars ‘grant’ are from tax payers money and will be re-furnished by tax payers again.

    After the election, GST will be increased to 9% or 11%, don’t know and more taxes will be hikes to cater for the $10B pretexted to be “Climate Change” but almost will be for land reclamation, infrastructures and more housing for FTs to come to replace locals.

    Under the PAPi, literally no more loves, no more lives, have to steal lunch boxes, become gojek or hawkers and good paying jobs goes to FTs.

    How much are you paying to the GST? [based on 80% spent]

    Take Home Pay Last 5 Yrs @ 7% Next 5 Yrs @ 9% Total Lost
    $1,000————————–$4,095—————————–$5,265—————————-$9,360
    $1,500————————–$6,142.5————————$7,897.5——————-$14,040
    $2,000————————–$8,190————————–$10,530————————–$18,720
    $2,500————————–$10,237.5—————–$13,162.5———————$23,400
    $3,000————————–$12,285———————-$15,795————————–$28,080
    $4,000————————–$16,380———————-$21,060————————–$37,440
    $5,000————————–$20,475———————-$26,325————————–$46,800
    $6,000————————–$24,570———————-$31,590————————–$56,160

  • Meet the rioters session:

    Has the “meet the people” become “meet the rioters”?

    Is it true police called in to disburse the people, who have every right to meet their MPs at the meet the people session?

  • VTO:

    This govt & so called 4G leaders are completely incompetent!

    Although not all food delivry riders are reckless, we do observe that a no. of food delivery riders r really reckless.
    So why those idiotic incompetent govt agencies use our taxpayers money to reward all food delivery riders?? When a no. of these riders are the root cause (including immature young punks, street gangs n fools riding e-scootrs as speed demons…) of the e-scooter ban ?

    SG is a sinking ship under this 4G leadershop !!

    JUST LIKE POFMA, THE PMD ISSUE (which should not have been allowed in the first instance in congested LEE-jiapore), PAPpypolitics is BOTH the CAUSE and the OUTCOME of its “offending”.

  • TruBlu:

    I said many times before on TRE before all these accidents n incidents took place that PMD ON FOOTWAY is simply DAFT.
    It has proven right,the MILK-IS-MILK MINI$tar whi got promoted to minister was just doing her master’s bidding regardless of the outcome of any studies taken before that stoopid policy decision.
    Putting the horse(PMD) before the cart(infra-structure) has always been the PAPple’s stance.

    How stooopid can STUPID be?

  • a PG:

    They have started all by allowing pmds here without careful thought and implementing proper infrastructures. After many innocent pedestrians and even death occured for so long, they now banned pmds on walkways. By doing so, the smart leaders hurt so many pmds riders, including food delivery. And now they have to dig out the $7 millions (tax payers money ?) to please those “crying babies” but withholding the elederly returns of their hard-earned coffin money.

  • Homeless Cat:

    We should congratulate the PAP. They have taken out everyone with the potential and passion to serve the country, leaving behind only an army of incompetent apple-polishers who will bring the country to its kneea.

  • "Oops", say the AristoCATs !:

    Asd:
    Why allow such import in the first place?. . .

    -
    -Many chimed in – “Exactly !”
    -
    For all the brain-power of the AristoCATs,
    Many chimed in – “What were they thinking. . .”
    -
    Why the “$7m Grant” ?
    Belatedly, the AristoCATs realized they made a big “boo-boo”.
    -
    Many chimed in – “It’s Election time. . .”
    Predictably, the AristoCATs throws $ at the problem. . .
    -
    Remember the Ballot Box !
