Why Chan Chun Sing should worry us

By now, many Singaporeans would have heard Chan Chun Sing’s “leaked audio” recorded during a meeting with local business leaders. Some would feel smug because they were not the “disgraceful idiots”, others will no doubt feel slighted, embarrassed, angry or even ashamed for thinking of their family in a crisis. While some have praise Chan Chun Sing for being wise, his candidness belies some traits Singaporeans should feel very worried about especially because this man is a Minister in government, no less.

This Minister feels it’s ok to call people “idiots” and “disgraceful” because they’re actions don’t sit well with him, rightly or wrongly so.

Even children know name calling is a form of bullying. Whatever your issue with another person, name calling is never ok. It puts down another person and many times, cause them distress and embarrassment. It is degrading. Chan Chun Sing has now glorified and normalized name calling when someone acts in a manner you deem inappropriate. To him, it is funny even.

In his tirade, he mocked people’s fears without attempting to show any understanding and compassion. Fears are real. Singaporeans witnessed deaths during SARS, including big name doctors who were supposed to be experts at prevention and cure. Covid-19 has killed doctors in China too, especially one famous whistle-blower.

Oftentimes, fears are not rationale. Even the PAP government acts out of fear. It hoards trillions of dollars in reserves, against many economists’ views of what is sufficient, instead of spending more on healthcare and supporting the vulnerable adequately.

Mockery, name calling, repeating rhetoric and pushing out propaganda is not the way to address fear. Instead, educate people with facts, like one posted on Science Insider where two medical professionals in the US shed light on some myths about Coronavirus, and explain why those are untrue. They did this in a respectful manner, seeking to educate rather than disparage myth-holders.

To Chan Chun Sing, people who rush to stock up on essentials are those who “never think”. That’s his perspective. It is true that many hoarders can’t think straight. Fear does that to you. By calling hoarders “idiots” and “disgraceful”, and asking people to tell off others, he is encouraging divisive behavior in the society, dividing the nation into those who are “wise”, and those who don’t know any better.

Divisive politics has been a hallmark of the PAP government, from the education system where we stream the “smarts” and the “normal”, to socially where we have the “aristocrats” that Singaporeans must listen to, and economically, where the haves (elites) can demand for millions in salaries and the have nots should learn to tighten our belts. Even the Presidential Election is now dividing Singaporeans further by race.

Chan Chun Sing is also myopic. He did not stop to consider why some may buy in bulk.

My parents live in Bedok South, a neighbourhood with many elderlies. On the same floor as them, there are 3 elderly households (one old couple, and two widowed elderly). Every time my mum, who is herself in her 70s, go to the market or coffeeshop, she buys for them as they are frail. When Covid-19 gripped Singapore, she took her trolley and toddled with my elderly dad to the supermarket. They loaded it with canned foods and 8 packets of toilet rolls. It was no easy feat for my elderly parents to lug all those goods back, and here’s the breakdown:

8 packets of toilet rolls – one for her and my dad, one for the old couple, one each for the two widowed elderly, two for my household, and two for my sister’s household (because we have young children).

After distributing the canned foods, each elderly household, and she and my dad, had 2 canned luncheon meat, 2 canned preserved vegetables, 2 canned preserved peanuts. She was apologetic that she couldn’t buy any for my sister and I because they couldn’t carry more. Two for each elderly household is hardly hoarding.

When my mum called me to tell me to go to her house to pick up the toilet rolls for my family after work, I was shocked. I told her she should have asked us to buy what they needed but her rationale was that we won’t have time between work, kids and cooking.

To Chan Chun Sing, my parents are idiots who don’t think, and are a disgrace to Singapore. To me, my parents are heroes who overthink … for others, to the point of inconveniencing themselves.

There are others who buy in bulk to donate, as we have seen on social media since the outbreak. So, if an attendee at Chan Chun Sing’s meeting should see someone buying in large quantities, should they approach and scold first without understanding? Some of you may like to think acts of sharing are minority cases but many families help one another when doing purchases because everyone else is working or caring for someone at home. It is not uncommon. My sister-in-law has a car therefore, would buy groceries for her mum, her sister’s family and us when she does a run.

Chan Chun Sing is the Minister for Trade and Industry, and Minister-in-charge of Public Service. His poor command of English (doesn’t know what is “sia suay” in English), tactless criticism of a foreign leader and the lack of empathy for the public make a mockery of the offices he hold. What’s worse, he even encourages business leaders to laugh at and scold Singaporeans who exhibit certain behaviour. These leaders are our employers. Now do we still wonder why the “leaders” of our community see themselves as higher than others?

Chan Chun Sing also revealed that the Government issued surgical masks to make people feel “shiok, shiok”, and in order not to get a scolding from the people. He is also willing to “gamble” over greater good. Is that sound leadership? It makes me wonder what he prioritises when making decisions. I would hope the government make good and responsible decisions that are prioritized in this order: people (lives), economy (money), stuff, and not the other way round.

Chan Chun Sing, in his capacity and representation of the Government shows he is myopic, unsympathetic, elitist, and a bully. Singaporeans should be worried about such attitude because our everyday lives are impacted by their decisions and actions.

Minister Chan have been in 10 years in politics and receiving millions dollars each year, for him would just a walkover if he gets infected.For ordinary singaporeans, it will be a heavy impact for us and future life will be loaded with uncertainity. Singaporeans ought to be careful because housing ,utility and living costs are already very high.

    Though I have not joined any so-called “panic buying”, I will never criticize them.

    Let’s look at this issue in another angle. When DORSCON changed SUDDENLY (this is the keyword) from Yellow to Orange, people will certainly speculate, will it change to Red tomorrow? This is basic human survival instinct at work, which is a good sign. It shows people are alert, quick thinking and ever ready to prepare for the worst.

    It is PAP who themselves are ill-prepared, they fail to prepare citizens first. Simply put, they have no foresight. DO YOU DARE TO ENTRUST YOUR LIVES TO THEM? Failure to prepare is as good as preparing to fail. This is today’s PAP folks! You guys ask for it, blame yourselves.

    Secondly, those who criticized these so-called “panic-buying” citizens are all very backward kampung-thinking and living in ivory tower people.

    In a big country like USA, China or even the Philippines, it is very normal, every weekend many go to supermarkets to buy essential items in bulk, including toilet papers. It makes economical sense to save on transport costs.

    It only reflects badly on PAP to have a small brain, never see how high is Mount Everest, as a Minister. Rubbish childish talk – 小孩子没见过大蛇噢尿!

  • PAPVID-20:

    Yes, with 4G leaders like CCS, singaporeans better be worried if this group of leaders is going to continue to lead sg and make every decisions for us.

    Obviously CCS has never been through tough times before. When my parents were still around, I learned from them to frequently stock up necessities in case of sudden bad times. They’ve been through the Jap war and experienced the race riot in sg. They know what it was like when you have a family to feed with little food supply.

    So what if govt says they have sufficient stockpile of food? They are not even sure how COVID-19 will affect us. They are not even sure when they’ll have to raise the DORSCON level to red. What will happen if the virus had suddenly become too fierce for them to handle? Would the situation in sg not be the same as in Wuhan? Who is going to open their stores? Where are people going to get their food from? Wait for govt’s rationing to survive?

    Perhaps I should also let CCS know the reason why some people (not idiots, ok?) have to rush to the supermarkets to buy their necessities. It’s bcoz to these average income earners, every cent counts for them. Foreseeing that prices of food would increase, they’ve to quickly get whatever they need fast. Ask Fairprice, 2 days after the run on supermarkets, did they not remove the “offer price” on many of their items?

    So far, I bet CCS and his 4G colleagues have just been guessing and taking gambles to deal with the virus. Counting on their lucky stars and fortunately for them, sg’s karma is good and so CCS is able to so arrogantly scold singaporeans.

  • justanothercitizen:

    This PAP G want to dictate every aspect of a citizens life. There is nothing wrong with buying lots of groceries or basic necessities. More so in a time of uncertainty. As far as is known there was orderly queuing and proper payment. There were no fights or dispute among shoppers over items or purchases. The only lack of good behavior, was perhaps people who left their groceries unattended when they left because they could no longer wait due to the long queue.
    Why is buying what you deem needed, called Kiasu or Kiasi? In this Covid crisis, even Japanese formed long queues to buy masks. And everywhere around the world, during a disaster or preparation from one, people stock up food and water. Look around. Preparing for hurricanes and typhoons, after tsunamis and earthquakes, people buy staffs. Are we at that kind of crisis? No, but they are not buying that much as well. It is just that many more people than usual does it and the supermarkets were caught by surprise. It is not that their operation was lacking, but just that an unexpected demand cause the selves to be empty.

    Now it is a shame on the G to react in such a manner. This G wants to dictate what is ‘acceptable’ behavior and go about it in an arrogant way. They did it before and they are doing it again. Using smearing and shaming to influence the general public to what is ‘unbecoming’ behavior. The former PM Goh did this before when he label Singaporeans who migrated to other countries as “Quitters”. Why? Because of outflow of talents from Singapore in his days. But he chose to say such a thing about it. Did it help? Are the present nasty comments of the present G helping? I think not. It cause divisions. People starts to become nasty towards one another in the social media. And it may become so in the real world. Many become more sensitive to small little act that are normally not worth considering. Like nurses now becoming very acutely aware of how people are, around them. This is playing in peoples mind, and it is not good.
    The latest episode is that of Speaker of Parliament twitting about the ‘panic’ buying and then having a disagreement with a reply. I urge Singaporeans to have empathy on others, not everyone must behave like you nor according to what the G ‘dictate’ is acceptable behavior.

    And to Government officials; You need to stop these labeling and name calling and walk a mile in the common folks’ moccasins.

  • Scum is just scum:

    When a humam loses its values, it just become scum n will remian so.Scum is what the old civilization called the waste of human world just as valeuless as the depleted drug from a brew. What they do to the drug waste, it is disposed so we should do the same with human scum. no SIN PMETs with integrity n dignity would forget the scum who buttbooked its threat to import any number of alien trash to displace them from their jobs convincingly showed scumself as a political scum traitorous basket.

    sars n Coronavirus r divine warnings to these PSTBs of their greeds n unaccountablity cowardice of their responsibility. But there is a greater threat of political virus going around now snarling over the pathetic USA revealing finally their wayang shit as leader of the free world n the virus now infecting the Thais. It is more lethal becaos the infectious sourcs has been dead n gone (as the young talent but badly screwed up by the scum leaving behind has paid a lot for the words uttered no different from the child who said the emperor is shame shame without clothes while his bootlickers n complilant beauracrats cheered him on of the fine fashion he has on) but the virus still remain potent n self documented. As the chinese medical workers strived to find the cure for the coronvirus but the kysaria virus remaining potent n infectious in the familiar dark n has proven more sneaky n hard to exterminate.

    As Singaporeans r desperately trying to find the cure to exterminate the kysaria off from their once island of paradise, USA is thrown into the dump while the demo r trying to escape by spilling its toxic over the Hwawei n feeding the anymoh zaii in China treasure island to catalyse angmoh zai over her adversaries. Perhaps the first thing to exterminate the kysaria is to flame the recipe books n then to exterminate the carriers which US is desperately seeking the cure while the Thais r gradually seeing deads. If SIN succeeds to rid it once and for all, Thais may
    Came into their senses!

  • To another snob:

    Chan's Insult:
    When I was an Officer during my NS days, I had to speak Hokkien to my men because they were not educated and did not know how to speak English But they were very Good soldiers who were not afrain to die.

    Now the Minister was addressing the audience as if they are Hokkien pengs. These people are highly educated and are Managing Directors, Chairmen etc of companies.

    Not only did he insult the people who bought in bulk, he also insulted the highly educated people by treating them like the Hokkien Peng. WTF

    Many SME bosses speak hokkien among themselves. Many business men and women are not tertiary educated, for lack of opportunity or otherwise.

    I am also an NS Captain, as educated as you I believe. I am not a tau kay. I am not a hokkien. I had problem communicating with my soldiers in hokkien.

    I dont feel insulted when people talk to me in hokkien or dialect or a mixture of Singlish and dialect.

    A vulgar word or phrase whether with asterisk or in abbreviation is still a vulgarity. Agreed? My educated peer.

  • Please calm down:

    pap chan chun sing sia suay:
    this pap chan chun sing is not the only one who calls sheep names.

    every pap Lj and every pap Cb never does anything outside pap playbook.

    unless pap clown or pap clown wife does it, nobody in pap is so gungho to be the first one to do it.

    so sia suay is 100% confirmed pap clown or pap clown wife has used it first on sheep.

    Many people in TREMERITUS here call other people sheep and themselves man with brains.

    You didnt call people sheep in this writeup quoted above, but I am not sure of your other write ups, only you know.

    I have listened to CCS’ leaked audio, I am very sure he didnt use any profanity in hokkien or in abbreviation.

    70% SGs are indeed idiots to keep voting PAPs in office and paying PAPs their undeserving $mil salaries…

  • I am very confused now:

    Many people in other tremeritus articles say a very small percentage panicked and rushed to stockpile, and also the smart kiasi (not believing PAP propaganda that we have enough masks …).

    So is it the 70% sheep or the other group?

    Can you analyse and tell me lah, thanks.

    Who is Right?:
    It is derogatory. There must have been many from the 70% who also stormed the supermarket for groceries and other essentials when they received the Orange Alert. How could they let him get away with calling them “idiots” by still electing him to Parliament? Perhaps, he is right!

Low class, low quality , no standard , childish yayaPAPayas kinds who are all so full of themselves and arrograntly think they can insult pple. He talk n conduct himself much like that Temasick aunt in charge [some pple got say before that aunt woman is his real aunt]

    How can the business leaders present see him up when he cant conduct himself in a dignified manner . No amount of his millions dollars salaries can get him any respect .On the contrary, the fact he kenna leak by one of them show they must be disgusted n tak boleh tahan watching him making a fool of himself.
    He damn no shame Can still try to defend himself by saying it was just his way of tough straight talking and all the papganghood then all came out to echo the same and white wash for him . Doesnt he know what he has done is yikes cringeworthy not something praiseworthy to be condoned n held up as exemplary conduct . All these pap sia suey si kui kias in charge unscrupulously turning all the values upside down , black is white n white is black Xianz.

    Conversely, I find the audio quite “interesting”.

    I only hope he can be just as blunt and transparent in Parliament like the local, Singaporeans (recent converted and others), PRs employment numbers.

    Foreign investors like JPM create good jobs for foreigners like Ramesh, now Ramesh may have changed employers … Anyway he is now a Singaporean.

    People rush to buy condo, pushing up prices. Wait, PAP says the majority are Singaporeans. Ramesh and the likes included?

    I dont want to say anymore just in case I am POFMAed, worse still, get charged under ISA or whatever for inciting …

  • Hi:

    Is the 30,000 the number of Chinese coming back to Singapore after CNY?

    Please, dont use numbers PAP throws out to us.

    There are at least 10 times the number here.

    Bapak:
    This case is a warning from Covid-19. A 20yo Wuhan female, traveled 675km to Anyang carrying the virus with her but not ill. All 5 relatives kena Covid. Even after infected the 5 relatives, she showed no sign of the virus in her. Scientists must be very interested to look into her body.

    She must be carrying the mother of all queen-Covid inside her, giving birth to many baby-Covids. Queen-Covid must be telling her babies to go forth and evangelize to show the world the power of Covid. While she chose to stay domain inside.

    Maybe she will surface in 2021, 2022, 2023,…every year! Imagine 30,000 are coming to Sunkland. Don’t wear mask lah! Our 4Gs ain’t know what they are dealing with.

    That prove a very obvious wayang fake show from this govt all these years…

    How they behave & act in front of the media, in election rallies, in front of S’poreans, etc. are totally different.

    After all these years, mass majority of govt remain elitist, egoistic & simply purely totally out-of-touch!!
    They’re only interested in protecting their own image & reputation.

    R they even justified if their million$$ income?
    Only this govt allows large influx of mediocre foreign workers to displace & replace its own native citizens.
    Heng, in his budget speech, said his party worried about large no. of S-pass foreign workers… is it far too late for Heng to say that?
    Govt is screwing its own citizens of having jobs!

    Going forward, will PAP change the constitution to allow non-elect people to be ministers?

    PAP by now we know will do anything to do things their way. So don’t surprise if this takes place.

    PAP will use this episode to scare Singaporeans that things would have gone bad if anybody than PAP is the government.

    Oppositions should be prepare to list every mishandling of the virus during election conversation with voters.

  • You really think so?:

    The very poor even have difficulty buying 5 kg of rice at one go, the cheapest brand of rice.

    I have seen and always wonder why some people, Singaporeans I am sure, not foreign tourists, pay cash on the bus, $1.50 by cash vis $0.92 by ez link card.

    You may think these people forgot to top up their ez link card, why didnt they top up $100 today and tomorrow another $100, so that their card will near become zero.

    Think again. There is another likely reason.

    PAPVID-20:
    Yes, with 4G leaders like CCS, singaporeans better be worried if this group of leaders is going to continue to lead sg and make every decisions for us.

    Obviously CCS has never been through tough times before. When my parents were still around, I learned from them to frequently stock up necessities in case of sudden bad times. They’ve been through the Jap war and experienced the race riot in sg. They know what it was like when you have a family to feed with little food supply.

    So what if govt says they have sufficient stockpile of food? They are not even sure how COVID-19 will affect us. They are not even sure when they’ll have to raise the DORSCON level to red. What will happen if the virus had suddenly become too fierce for them to handle? Would the situation in sg not be the same as in Wuhan? Who is going to open their stores? Where are people going to get their food from? Wait for govt’s rationing to survive?

    Perhaps I should also let CCS know the reason why some people (not idiots, ok?) have to rush to the supermarkets to buy their necessities. It’s bcoz to these average income earners, every cent counts for them. Foreseeing that prices of food would increase, they’ve to quickly get whatever they need fast. Ask Fairprice, 2 days after the run on supermarkets, did they not remove the “offer price” on many of their items?

    So far, I bet CCS and his 4G colleagues have just been guessing and taking gambles to deal with the virus. Counting on their lucky stars and fortunately for them, sg’s karma is good and so CCS is able to so arrogantly scold singaporeans.

    Who says they must have equal access to masks at all cost?

    I think you dont give 2 hoots about others.

    If you want masks, say so please.

    I am blunt.

    Ignorance:
    Minister Chan does not seem to understand how the virus could affect ordinary Singaporeans badly, he want people to behave in ordinary manner.If folks who belongs to middle or low income was suddenly infected with the virus, they have to pay a heavy price in medication fees, income lost and job discrimination. Minister Chan have been in 10 years in politics and receiving millions dollars each year, for him would just a walkover if he gets infected.For ordinary singaporeans, it will be a heavy impact for us and future life will be loaded with uncertainity. Singaporeans ought to be careful because housing ,utility and living costs are already very high.

  • This is Sg, human nature:

    SiDame’s parents’ are exemplary.

    Again, how do we account for the run or whatever you want to call it after the code change?

    I dont believe in coincidence.

    Toilet rolls out of stock for days! Yes, the panic and run are mainly attributed to PAP propaganda telling us Sg has sufficient masks, yet people cannot find same everywhere to buy.

    I believe SiDame’s is only one of the many who bought loads of toilet papers that day for themselves (and family members).

    Nowadays, we dont even know our neighbours, we also move houses often (2-3 times in our lifetime) so that we can upgrade or monetize our house.

    It is all for himself or herself, just like many here clamouring for masks to protect themselves (of course some add on to advise others to wear masks too) even though we know there are insufficient masks to go round and masks are prioritized to the medical workers.

    patriot of TUMASIK:
    There is a difference between NECESSITIES and convenience to UnNecessory hoarding owing to “kiasuism”…the 1st is as Sidame describe and…

    the 2nd???… a Mental CONdition by a bast**d with a “siege MENTALITY”…

    Not all the businessmen are enamoured with the pap clowns political leeders .
