The government has lost the balance

While many had applause the government for the CB measures. I think that the government has lost the balance.

Many workers who were tested healthy are still in quarantine. These workers should be allowed to work under close monitor. The majority of the public doesn’t need to be lock down.

However, measures such as mask wearing and reasonable social distancing needs to be followed. the extended CB is not necessary. if the government tested 8000 workers/ day. It will mean that only approximately 10 percents of the tests were positive. The rest should be allowed to go back to work under close monitoring.

The government was attacked for providing poor living condition to the workers. In my humble opinion, the living condition is as good as the housekeeping of the occupant. Some of the people who claims the living condition is bad for migrant workers are middle income families and some grassroots.

These are the people who assume every family has a car (some has 2), everyone in Singapore sleeps in air-conditioned rooms. People who lives in a large house meaning they must be very rich. the government could send the workers to live at vacated buildings. But the some middle class people thinks that there should be wifi and other facilities. they seems to forget that many singaporeans folks are living without wifi too.

in such measures, it is not about providing entertainment. It is about containing the virus. similarly, many of these vacant buildings are locating in the heart lands, people might no be happy about it. But as leaders, we have to tell these residents that it all boils down to dollars and cents. We can squander the money or we can manage it.

In conclusion, I find that the government is now toppling the country.

    Right at the ONSET,ONLY A COUPLE OF COUNTRIES DID WHAT MUST BE DONE.
    TAKE NZ.
    THEY QUICKLY CONTAIN N THEY ARE THE MOST STRINGENT BUT THEIR FEMALE PM HAS GOT MORE BALLS THAN ANY OF OUR MALE LEADERS HERE.

    CONTAINMENT IS KEY.

    NOW THAT COVID has spread to such extent n gravity,RELAXING ILL-TIMED LOCKDOWNS WILL PROVE TO BE PLAIN STUPID.
    It is about time for the govt to assess its own actions or inaction n for the PEOPLE to take note of what has been done wrong and speak out!

    Pofma will hinder TEAL PROGRESS while trying to SUPPRESS N MAKE REAL NEWS INTO FAKE?

    CITIZENS SHUD NOT BE PUNISHED FOR MAKING CONSTRUCTIVE PUBLIC CRITICISMS JUST LIKE THEY HAVE NOT BEEN PENALISED FOR FALSELY SINGING THE GIVT’S PEAISES???

  • PAP is Doomed:

    Fong, you are right.. PAP Govt is toppling our country.

    PAP is too focused on election, while they know that Singaporeans will not give the “strong mandate” the PAP is asking.

    The 4G team is hopeless and incompetent. The Snr PAP Ministers and MPs are keeping very quiet, letting the 4G team to proof themselves.

    This is not a case like SARs. PAP misunderstood and miscalculated the gravity of this pandemic due to their usual arrogance and over-confidence.

    It’s too late for PAP. Maximum damage has been inflicted on themselves beyond repair. Thanks to Ministers CCS, JT, Ong, LW, Gan and all.Thanks to the Empress too for keeping her salary secret.

    PAP failed badly becos they have been a single ruling party for too long. No competition.

    Singaporeans are ready now to vote more Opposition in coming election.

    PAP must lose at least 2 GRCs and 5 SMCs to Opposition.

    We must also NOT allow any dishonorable son to become the next Minister Mentor, after election. We will be doomed for ever if this happens.

    JUST ASK AN ECONOMIST TO PRICE the value of a human life, I am sure no one gets a correct answer if anyone even inhuman to try.

    Even in PAPpypolitics circus world got parliamentary members voting to save the lives of stray dogs, cats and pigeon which incidentally the supply of food to these precious species also feed the disease-carrying rodent rats.

    When the Covid-19 have done enough damage to human economic survival, lots of impoverished dogs and cats lovers will simply abandon their “lovers” to survive in the stray world.

    A LOT OF FOREIGN WORKERS INFECTED comes from the construction sector – those from infrastructure sector might still have a finishing job to complete.

    Covid-19 trapped a lot of developers and property buyers – both are financially desperate to extricate themselves from this quagmire of incomplete or delayed completion or unable to complete condo projects ASAP.

    My take is that without big financial bailout to the entire sector – which is of no productive value to economy forward – some of the developers will go under and even those who completed construction of the projects find no buyers to take of unsold inventory off their hands.

    Covid-9 will force the abandonment of the Population White Paper policy – the economy cannot survive, let alone prosper, on endless construction of condo projects with NO SCALABLE ECONOMIC VALUE ADDED (beyond the short-term lift to GDP during the construction phase) nor recurrent income-generating export value. No economic wealth is created by developer building condo and selling it for a profit to buyers and no buyers ever got rich simply by paying inflated prices for his/her necessary housing accommodation needs.

    Who is the next sucker buyer to take off his/her hand a secondhand condo at an even higher inflated price when job insecurity in a deglobalised world is as shaky of prediction as the Equatorial weather? The profitability of asset trading is only valid when there is a bigger sucker around to take it off the hands of the last owner.

    In volatility, RISKS OF MISJUDGMENT far exceeds the insanity of predatory greed. This is the nature of financial market behavior. More people lose money in a bull market than a bear market BUT THOSE WHO LOST IN A BEAR MARKET LOSS EVEN MORE because they bought and paid too much at the top.

    Covid-19 destroyed an enormous amount of wealth – the hardest hit are the middle and upper middle class I imagine.

  • Flabbergasted:

    The civil service is very competent.

    It is the ministers that are hampering efforts.

    As proven, none of the ministers that are designated to deal with the present crisis has shown any worthiness.

    I believe if they (the ministers) do not interfere in the decision making processes of the civil service, we would not have had this problem on our hands.

    The country will function with or without the PAP, perhaps, may even function more effectively without their hands tied and having to worry about losing their jobs because they are politically incorrect.

    Voters, give AMK to the opposition, cut off the s*ake’s head.

    You can keep some of the PAP, esp those with a heart. Without the top to dictate, our beloved Singapore will be much better off.

    We can get rid of all the free-loading foreign shit and reclaim Singapore for Singaporeans.

    IN LEE-JIAPORE, IT IS POLITICS RULE ECONOMIC fortified by the devious GRC contraption of political mast*rbation and asset-bubble economy walking on one-leg.

    In truly free-market economy, it is economics rules politics. you either perform in ONE electoral cycle or out the farking door.

    There is clear separation of public institutions from the Executive – you see that in NZ & UK, ministers who flouted Covid-19 lock down law got the cane assuring peasants the integrity (instead of corruption) of public institutions in the furtherance of personal gain.

    POLITICAL GOVERNANCE IN LEE-JIAPORE HAVE NEVER GOT ITS BALANCE, how to lose its balance after Covid-19 pandemic ejacul*tion?

  • Bilyma:

    Not just a few are questioning – is the extended lock down necessary or is the entire circuit breaker even needed?

    There’s a feeling that maybe the 1st CB was good just to play safe. But the extended period was just PAP forcing a fear to the population that the situation is still dangerous.
    But is this true?

    After the 1st wave that occurred in the general community had been flatted, things should be under conscious & safety measures phase.
    But all the sudden, the 2nd wave explored.
    It was truly & clearly 100& the mistake of PAP. yet to make it like it’s everybody problems, PAP decided to hyped up the lock down.
    Look, how many % of Singaporeans come in contact with dormitory workers?
    At least 90% don’t or can’t even go near these dormitories.
    So PAP idea is to make sure all Singaporeans be part of the miseries then we’ll forget where orc who causes this problem to begin with.

  • why pap today is failing:

    pap today is failing is because pap pays each other S$m in order to maintain NON mediocrity façade rather than truly rewarding performance.

    so much so there are many worthless duds, only good at PLP, who front all pap businesses, from pap parleement to pap PA to pap Singtel to pap Mediacorpse.

    worthless duds? YES. non is performing.

    Any Proof?

    1st, look at pap Mediacorpse. during this CB (hokkien = chee and bye, the most apt description of pap CB). in any 1 hour of 60 mins, almost 20 mins or 2/3 of the time is wasted over useless commercial breaks, mostly useless non revenue generating time wasting waste of time breaks.

    during this pap CB period we have watched many live programs via streaming. Live Programs. Even watched a singing competition final live. No useless commercial breaks. Which translates to better enjoyment of program. How come others can do it – Mango TV in China, as an example, dit it and so well too? How come pap Mediacorpse cannot do it – because pap puts the best yes women best yes men to the S$m jobs regardless of ability?

    so, pap today = utter fail double confirmed.

    2nd, look at pap Singtel. ffff. it started as a monopoly. yet during the earlier days, most things were “free” such as e-mail address and mioTV box and such. ffff. when competition started to hot up due to better streaming from Netflix from Mango TV and such, this pap CB Mediacoprse started to charge for e-mail address and charge for mioTV box and such. what a ffffing Lj move. ended up canceling pap Singtel e-mail address and using foc Gmail address, canceling mioTv and using mainly streaming services on Smart TV.

    so, pap Singtel is failing. do we care? as a consumer, we say good riddance to the pap piece of shit. as an owner of pap Singtel, since we are CPF members and pap Singtel is from our CPF money, and since we own temasick, we say bad luck our CPF money is going to be drained until kosong due to pap failing performance in pap Singtel.

    What is the point?

    If 70% sheep does not wake up, true as sunrise pap is going to ruin their sheep life. Guaranteed to happen if 70% sheep continues to slumber.

  • Dynasty degenerate:

    Indeed, the sovereign’s inner circle have been dictating the national agenda for their self-centered corporate initiatives (with “national security salary secrecy” bullshit) and manipulating the narrative of Singaporeans socio-economic concerns according to their whims – often against the scruples of moral conscience and sound reason, as in this pandemic test case, which has exposed their chauvinistic and irrational responses to problem-solving in the arena of the larger society. Underpaid sheeples are aplenty and expendable….labour on till the grave welcomes your worn-out spirits – the Emperor demands your unrelenting service to the kingdom of greater mortals crazy-rich Asians!
