  • LKY wake up from slumber:

    I heard the leaked speech of Chan CS and was TOTALLY APPALLED. We Singaporeans are TRULY DAFT for having such an incompetent ARSE HOLE for a minister.He should be given a kick up the a$$e for calling SIngaporean idiots.
    It was the lack of confidence the people felt in the government’s ability to fight the corona virus that lead to the panic buying.The changing of DEFSCONE from yellow to orange spoked the people to such actions.

    This simple minded arrogant prick of a minister has no rights to call Singaporeans idiots when the government showed a lack of confidence.For one the Mister of health should be the one coordinating and leading all efforts with fighting the virus.He is in the shadows and lets Mr Wong do most of the leadership roles.We have seen that The Minister of health screw up on several occasions.The COVER UP of the herpatits deaths till after the elections.We have seen the leaking of personal information under his watch.

    PM Lee in his speech made the fight against the corona seem like a walk in the park, were is he now when SIngapore has the highest number of corona cases outside China.Several countries have advise their citizens from visiting SIngapore.Singapore is now the NEW SICK MEN OF hSOUTH EAST ASIA. So Chan CS you USELESS PAPER GENERAL stop scolding Singaporeans and channel your energy in fighting the epidemic.Chan CS you make me PUKE. I WISH AND PRAY you be voted out in the next elections.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    PAP “stockpiled” money instead of masks and resorted to insulting Singaporeans when taken to task for its stupidity.

    Another good reason for REGIME CHANGE.

  • LKY wake up from slumber:

    Are Macau minister paid a MILLIONS, and if not SIngapore ministers MUST be paid accordingly. The SKY HIGH pay of Singaporeans minister have made them ARROGANT and LAZY.The ministers have their heads in the clouds, they MUST be brought down to earth.
    LKY is still in deep slumber when SIngapore is quickly turning into third world under the watch of his son.

  • Boh Kia See:

    What Kee Chiu was saying is that there is not enough mask for every one. Therefore, people should not be rush to buy them–so that the supply could be used by hospital staff.

    That is the reason for all the ads on TV and everywhere bombarding people telling them not to wear masks unless sick or looking after the sick. It makes the wearing of masks an act of defiance against the PAP. There is no need for such action but was necessary because of there not being sufficient number in stockpile.

    No need to blame citizens for their own shortcoming. they simply did not learn from the SARS episode–as usual saving money at the expense of lives. It seems fine to spend on Founders Monument though.

    On another note, this giving of cash during budgets is like some Emperors in third world countries going on the streets, and distributing notes to the common people. One famous person came to mind–the previous Ethiopian Emperor Haile Salesse who drove around the capital, rolled down his car windows to hand out wads of cash. That is what is happening in Singapore.

    There are so many schemes and packages in existence in Singapore. Did anyone make an evaluation as to how effective those schemes and packages work or are they totally useless. It is time to simply such activities so that citizens do not have to jump through so many hoops just to get a small financial gain.

    Time to get rid of the PAP–for Singapore to flourish.

    We can’t compare with Macau. It has the backing of China. China might sacrifice Wuhan to save the entire country, though too little too late. It wouldn’t let Macau collapse.

    If our government, acted like the Taiwanese, was frank at the outset and told us that masks for the time being wouldn’t be enough and best reserve for frontline workers, S’poreans would understand.

    It is an utter disgrace that our Minister rubs salt into the wound of Hong Kong people.

    If our Minister does not understand,
    Ng Sam explains. He says they acted like so-called idiots because they have a useless government and they can’t vote them out.

    I totally agree with you and i feel exactly the same.

    Even if it was a triple-closed doors or 1.5m thick closed lead door, a good leader do not behave like this. Where was the integrity? Where was the basic respect to others? This is a low class chao-beng, even bengs also have minimum integrity!

    By the way, many people had said this before and i am going to repeat this here:

    WHAT MAKES THESE IDIOTS MILITARY SCHOLARS QUALIFIED THEIR VARIOUS MINISTAR POSITIONS?

    And WHAT IS THE JOB SELECTION CRITERIA TO BE A MINISTAR FOR for Trade and Industry?

    And how an INFANTRY BATTALION COMMANDER got to do with TRADE AND INDUSTRY?

    Me stupid idiot brain no good, can anyone help to enlighten me?

    70% or more including some from the 30% are IDIOTS and there are no two ways about it…Is Bugs Chan correct in his leaked comment absolutely Yes!!!…

    we MUST accept that IDIOTS are plentiful but the ones in Parliament are the ONES we should worry and REMOVE!!!…

    primarily the Head Honcho who cries and vindicate himself in Parliament…THAT!!! to me is the most IDIOTIC person in the History of Parliament from any Free Country(are we FREE???)

    For a minister to call the citizens idiots is just SO insulting. It shows he has no integrity nor emmpathy for the people. At times like this when the COV is spreading so fast in this dense and overpopulated community, it is understandable that the people has a strong feeling of fear that prevents reasonable thought and action when the alarm was raised to Orange. Now, who is the actual idiot?? CCS is the REAL IDIOT.

  • nizhemoshou:

    why the macau or for that matter all the other countries do better than pap clown govt Bcos they can see the havoc the outbreak is creating in china to know this outbreak must be taken seriously n they must proactively set out to take all necessary precautionary measures .
    Pap clown govt also have the benefit of seeing the havoc unfolding in China but chose to be more concerned about companies in SG letting go their prc workers bcos they could be infected and have to be quarantined or it is troublesome to keep the jobs for them if they cant return to Sg on time. So pap clown govt very fast to implement measure of giving $100 to employers for everyday the prc not back to work due to quarantine. When comes to proemptive actions to prevent the risk of infection, they were slow. eg didnt want to ban flights from China n SG n did so only after sgs petitions twice and other countries had done so.

    Other countries transporting back their citizens from China made sure they were diverted to off site n taken to quarantine Dont see clown govt do the same but were still allowing them to disembark n checking for temp at airport niah . Any wonder we learnt of infected prcs tourists or otherwise were responsible for the hotel n medical shop clusters and other infected persons with travel link to China epicentre infecting locals in the community?
    Even something as simple as ask sgs to wear mask for protection also cant do
    By not taking timely pre emptive isnt it worse for the economy n businesses now? Bcos got most no of kenna cases than other countries san China and even bcome export hub for infection to other countries. have caused other countries to ban/reduce flights to n from SG and cancel events in SG. Likewise sgs also got scared n opting to stay n eat at home if dont have to go to work and hoard up provisions. So shop n eateries restuarants , cabs no business and hotel /airports business also badly affected. Isnt it shorted sighted of clown govt that must be blamed for doing more damages to the economy n businesses. ?

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    I picked up my 4 free masks from the community centre today. Before going inside the building there was somebody at the door wearing a mask checking temperature. I was wearing a mask. I gave my IC at the main counter and asked for my free masks. It was promptly given to me. With the free masks was a flyer saying to only wear a mask if I have a fever, cough or running nose or recovering from illness.

    I asked if my wife can also have 4 free masks. I was told only 4 per household. I asked if there are more than 4 people in my household can I have more mask I was told no. So it appears for after 4th person in the household for the rest it is “you get sick (and die), your business”.

    I also noticed many of the community centre staff were wearing a mask. They are obviously not sick because if they were they would be on MC and at home. I asked the counter-staff why she was wearing a mask. She gave me a “dirty look”. It appears many Singaporeans do not believe MOH advice t only wear a mask when sick.

    After I left the community centre I took a bus to go home – still wearing a mask. When I boarded the bus I noticed nobody was wearing a mask except me. After a while, I noticed the people seating close to me took out their mask to wear. They likely think I am sick and do not want to get infected. Again, it appears they do not believe MOH advise. They are not sick but they wear a mask because they believe they are close to a sick person (because I was wearing a mask).

    My conclusion for today’s experience collecting my 4 free masks is that many Singaporeans distrust the Government. This also likely explains the panic buying when Code Yellow became Code Orange. Many believe they need to look after themselves because the Government will not do it.

    Most likely those who wear a mask even if they are not sick will vote for the Opposition. I am wearing a mask when I cast my vote. How about you?

    At least he spoke openly! Now, this uncouth siasuay hit out from behind!
