Truly disgraceful state of affairs in Singapore?

A video showing a frail and elderly man pushing a trolley full of cardboard in the rain for the sake of a $3.10 has gone viral on social media.

First posted on the Happy People Helping People Community (HP2) Facebook page, the 6-minute video showed the man – who was purportedly 75-years old – struggling to push the trolley along the road.

After the volunteers highlighted to the elderly man that the road was dangerous, he replied that the pavement’s ground was not level and was worried that the cardboard may fall off his trolley.

Despite his plight, the volunteers who had helped the elderly man described him as “one of the most friendly, funny and chatty” uncles in Toa Payoh.

Sharing this incident on his Facebook page, former GIC Chief Economist Lam Keong Yeoh said that this was a “Truly disgraceful state of affairs in Singapore, one of the richest countries in the world, with one of the richest governments relative to population!”

He added that the government could “easily put an end to most of this misery of elderly absolute poverty by raising the silver support scheme by another $500-600 a month from a miserly $200-250 at minimal fiscal cost, yet for some inexplicable reason fails to do so!”

While it seems the problem has raised disbelief among netizens, the “A Mile In Their Shoes” event organised by HP2 was cancelled last week as police said on Friday (Dec 13) that it would require a permit as it politicises a social cause.

The event had invited representatives from various political parties to collect cardboard so that they will experience the problem “first-hand and hopefully will share their experiences in parliament and help solve the growing impoverished elderly problem among our senior citizens.”

    Uniquely sg. Embarrassing sg.

    Cardboard collectors, homeless people sleeping on the streets, elderly selling tissue papers, so many poor in sg but our ministers are happily drawing millions of taxpayers’ dollars. Is it not embarrassing for the toxic party?

    Oppositions who post articles online which embarrassed the toxic party are now dealt with 婆妈.

    Then the poor who embarrass the millionaire leaders how? I am guessing, they might legislate laws to ‘take care’ of the poor soon.

    - Collecting cardboards is illegal.
    - People who sleep on the streets will pay a heavy fine.
    - People selling tissue papers must pay high tax.

    Ta-da! Like the PMD food delivery riders, the poor will be out of sight soon too and the millionaire ministers can continue to laugh all the way to the bank and live happily ever after.

    Well deliberated!!!

    Apart from the proposed $500-$600 payment, responsible govt. of the day should without hesitation implement the following measures to further help all true blue senior citizens who have contributed to nation building:-

    1) provide free basic hospitalisation and medicare

    2) allow the full withdrawal of moneys from the medisave accounts of all seniors above age 65 yrs proceeds of which should help boost their standard of living.

    3) provide free passport to all seniors.

    Please do the needful before its too late!!!!

  • Free $3000 monthly pension:

    Singapore can easily afford to give every old folk a $3,000 monthly pension.

    With the huge yearly surplus of between $20 to $50 billion, this pension is just a small drop from the reserve returns.

    In my area, all these aunties and uncles get very protective of their daily collection, in the past, there were fights too. Someone else had pilfered their card boards when they were not watching.

    So sad…Recently, I had held the lift doors open for an elderly auntie as she tried to manoveure her trolley into the lift. She sighed, and I asked her how much did she earned that day. She said, only $1.40. Said it is only 4cts per kilo these days, what to do…She still smiled.

    I wondered how is it these pioneers are still such cheng hu ass kissers. They usually whisper if they talk about PAP! Amazing.

    The fear instilled in them is very real. I don’t foresee the opposition sweeping into parliament in the next GE.

    not only for clown CPF, but also their expensive cooking course in france and abuse of ST corporate jet for personal advantage.

    when najib and najib wife were in power, they copied pap clown and pap clown wife. najib and wife had agc cpic spf bank negara under their thumbs.

    as soon as najib and wife were toppled at GE14 and new agc cpib spf bank negara chiefs in position replacing najib and wife cahoots, all 4 of them said najib and wife churied S$m via 1MDB.

    so the same with pap clown and wife. now BS 70% sheep gic temasick under oversight mof. but the mof Lj is lower ranked than pap clown and wife. in fact, the mof Lj reports to pap clown and wife.

    like that can check and balance? check cock or check Cb?

    how to check? cannot lah. all BS only.

    that is why although their ownself pay ownself S$m continues, they say need to raise GST.

    70% sheep truly stupid.

    70% sheep must vote and topple pap like Msians did. so that Dr Tan CB coalition government can reappoint NEW agc cpib spf bank negara chiefs to indict pap clown and wife.

    Our birth rate last year is 1.14 and before last year, is around 1.2 (in 2016).
    Can we tax the younger generation and give them a heavier burden to help the old ? Worse still, if all approximately 1.5 million old people need assistance, say $850 per month, what will be the cost the younger generation have to pay?

  • Singaporenoresources talk cock:

    Ministers and MPs receiving multiple undisclosed incomes from GLC appointments (other than their global top salaries)- is it not from a “FINITE SOURCE”?

    Blowing up tiny public flat prices to sky high levels – is that not cruelly burdening the younger generations with long drawn out mortgages, many a times on both husband & wife’s VERY FINITE SALARIES?

    The only developed nation to obstinately refuse to implement a national minimum wage: old grandmas grandpas slogging in very menial jobs in public places for $5/hr – is this not wilfully suppressing the poor people’s VERY FINITE RESOURCES?

    SINCHIAPOR INCORPORATED has already failed! It’s the world’s most expensive city for six consecutive years; Last year saw 397 deaths by suicide, and mental cases at IMH seeing a sharp rise especially among the youth. The educated young cannot be coaxed to marry and start families. And this little island is swarmed by labour imports that are tearing at our critical socio-economic fabric.

    We the people are the resources! But the Corporation has been making use of us and fixing us at the same time. They’re damned abusive these crony-capitalists……. give us back our CPF savings and no more cock and bull rationalisations to hold it back for the Corporation’s sake please.

    Who causes all these?
    I believe if you were a Uni graduate, you surely have taken up PAP graduate mothers scheme incentives in the 1980s, just like our half Indian half Malay Executive President Halimah (I didnt bother to check if I got her name spelt correctly).
    The scheme is not self entitlement just because PAP gives it to you and a few chosen ones?

    No offence if I guess you vote for PAP in the last GE.
    You might as well advise him to collect the bottles and cans from recycle bins. It is an offence by the way.
    You might as well ask him to book a grab to the nearest recycle machine to collect bottles and cans in the vicinity.
    You might as well encourage him to go for training and retraining to collect more value added items and do it more efficiently (a big truck can collect more bottles and cans, no need back breaking efforts).
    Do you think such “generous” gimmicks by NTUC is going to last, just look at GRAB, Fatpanda, Deliveroo “incentives” schemes.
    Do you know most coffee shops, if not all, shoo people away who collect bottles and cans.
    In hawker centres, there are many people looking for empty bottles and cans, foreigners and local. Not surprise if there are squabbles over this.

    This scenario of poor elderly in the video can be captured across our island many times. What do peoples from outside world think of us ?

    The old man kept saying, “Wa tau … wa tau” several times. He must be from the pioneer generation who looked to be more than 70 years old.

    The old man kept saying, “Wa tau … wa tau” several times. He must be from the pioneer generation who looked to be more than 70 years old.

    After several loud exchange of words, we saw the old man sadly lugging his roller-basket away into another block.

    It has come to this: A foreign cleaner has more rights than a pioneer generation Singapore citizen.
