What kind of DPM are you?

You mean without the election, you cannot rally people together for a cause?

What kind of DPM are you?

Everything he says here is a regurgitation of what the PAP said in 2015.

I mean really. Go dig up 2015 news reports and see for yourself.

Singapore faces challenges… blah blah… we need Singaporeans to come together… blah blah…

The question I would ask him is this:

Who will be responsible if anyone gets infected, or worse, dies from Covid19 during the election?

    Ah kiat, finish your job properly to contain the virus first since you chaps have been paid millions in the first place to fo the duty, ok?

    Then you may start asking for another mandate.

    This reminds uncle of a contractor who kept asking for more progress payments for flat renovations after completing only less than half the job.

    In fact, this is the best time to boot you out if you still can’t handle the job which is long overdue.

    Every GE, Singapore always has some kinds of challenge, but after GE everything back to normal. Those challenges never solved. Even promises never fulfilled.

    DPM please tell us what are the challenges we are going to face for the next five years that we don’t know. What about the current problem with the SAR-Cov-2? Just throw money and the virus will go away???!!!

    The only problem, I am sure, is to fill up the reserve again, by increase taxes. That’s all the PAP can do. That, we don’t need PAP to do it. Just too expensive to have PAP to do it!!

    By kicking out PAP, the country would save $100 million already, at least or maybe more.

    Response :Look at the previous Hepatitis case in SGH many years back and there are deaths and many people contracted Hepatitis. Yet no doctors and nurses got send to jail for responsibility. And when no doctors or nurses got send to jail for negligent, the government should then removed Amy Khor Lean Suan (healthcare) then and charge and send Amy Khor Lean Suan to jail for negligent management in Hepatitis spread. Nobody on government need to hold responsibility even if there is deaths. And the dengue cases has been rising in recent years and Amy Khor Lean Suan can still be seating firmly in the environment top head seat when so many people died or suffers from dengue too!

  • Boh Kia See:

    What the PAP is afraid of is the situation after the pandemic is over. It will be something that they and many Singaporeans have never experienced.

    With a very bad economic situation, the PAP is afraid they will lose the election. So have GE now will be the better of the two evils.

    It is obvious that the PAP has no idea as to how to solve current problems and future problems. I think they would like to continue to increase taxes such as GST in order to replenish their reserves. To do that and still feel secure in their $m jobs, they need a new term.

    There is so little in new thinking that even their speeches are repetitive from the past. They always look back to the past and use the name of the trai*or PM to rally the people. It simply shows their lack of achievement that they need to use the past to pave their way for the future.

    If Singaporeans want to have a chance at a better life then the PAP must go–totally and completely. The people on the ground should be told and convinced that it would be better for them.

    VTO–the PAP.

    Reported on Independent. sg website :Quote – ““Billions for bosses and foreigners but just 100 for us?” Netizens on S$100 Solidarity Utilities Credit
    Although some netizens expressed their gratitude several of them questioned the disparity between the amount extended to businesses compared to the amount given to households
    ….

    Beatrice Del Rosario
    DATE

    May 29, 2020

    In response to the S$100 Solidarity Utilities Credit, netizens have expressed a mix of sentiments. While some find the amount to be “peanuts,” others say that any amount is helpful. A few other netizens, however, have questioned the disparity between the amount of financial aid extended to businesses compared with the amount given to households….

    According to a recent report, Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat on Tuesday (May 26) announced that the Government would give a one-off S$100 Solidarity Utilities Credit to every household with at least one Singaporean citizen. The credit aims not only to help Singaporeans cope with the circuit breaker, but also to express the Government’s gratitude to the people for staying home…

    “Singaporeans have given feedback that while they are saving on transport fares and other charges, they are expecting to spend more on their utility bills, as they stay home during the circuit breaker period,” said Mr Heng. “To thank all Singaporeans for doing our part in staying home for Singapore, I will provide a one-off $100 Solidarity Utilities Credit to each household with at least one Singapore Citizen. This will cover all property types and will be credited in the July or August utilities bill.”
    ….
    At the same time, some netizens thought the amount was not enough. While some questioned how much the Government spends to help individuals in comparison to its total expenditures on financial aid to businesses, one netizen straight-forwardly commented, “Another $33 billion and they end up helping businesses and (the) self-employed, yet the general public gets $100 (for) utilities and that’s it…. ”Unquote.

    Response :Give you residents $100 utilities? So prepare for both water and electricity prices to increase soon to get back a “whole chicken”. And everytime the government keep on giving to all business to let them make more profits, it is the citizens especially the males in Singapore that the government failed to take care of after they serve National Service. Women don’t serve National Service.

    with GST included? what service are we getting by including gst on deducting our own money to pay for a forced gov insurance scheme ?
    the final line says gst included.
    wtf!
    thats how its gonna be..
    right after GE, when PAP wins, and they will, it will be business as usual..
    a whole new slew of price and tax increases (plus the 9%GST hike) will follow …
    and the price hikes will go on every few months .
    even now in the midst of the pandemic most prices of food n other essentials have gone up oredy…
    so unless sgs vote out at least few seats in parliament..things aint gonna change..it’ll only get worse..
    remember theyre also planning to push up sg population to 10mil mostly by importing new citizens, fts and prs..
    sgs cant afford to make babies anymo since everything is so expensive due to depressed wages brot on by huge numbers of cheaper foreign workforce..

    Source from Straits Times(27th May 2020) :Quote1 – “DPM Heng on Singapore GE: ‘The sooner we get it done, the earlier we can rally everybody together’ to fight Covid-19

    ….
    Singapore’s next election must take place by April 14, 2021, ….

    On Tuesday, Mr Heng, who is also Finance Minister, announced a $33 billion supplementary Budget – Singapore’s fourth support package this year. The Fortitude Budget, as it is called, aims to help workers and businesses tide over the Covid-19 crisis and the grim economic outlook. Combined with the three earlier Budgets, it takes the total amount the Government is dedicating to this cause to $92.9 billion….. “Unquote1.

    Source Straits Times website(25th May 2020)  : Quote2 -” Jobs a key part of 4th coronavirus support package, President gives in-principle support to draw on reserves.

    Photo

    The government had earlier announced three Covid-19 support packages amounting to $63.7 billion St PHOTO MARK CHEONG
    …..Audrey Tan  ” Unquote2.

    Response : From Quote 2,we see a figure $63.7 billions reserves used under the “photo” picture. We know from recent news that the $33billions has been set aside for Fortitude Budget (reported out in Straits Times too). So Total reserves used is actually =$63. 7 billion + $33 billions =$96. 7 billions
    =$96, 700,000,000 reserves being used.

    From Quote 1, we see a figure of the total amount the Government is dedicating to this cause to $92.9 billion.

    Is it really $92.9 billions or really $96.7 billions?

    See the difference discrepancy =$96.7 billion – $92.9 billions = $3.8 billions =$3, 800,000,000 may be “disappear off” mysteriously!!!!! If this is the government error, why don’t the whole government resign? Did Straits Times report “fake news” or under-report or over – report reserves usages? If this is the Straits Times reporting error, why don’t the government get the whole Straits Times women wing to resign? $3,800,000,000 of our reserves money is unaccountable for? Has it been stolen or siphon off? Our reserves money must be properly reported out without error and without ambiguity ! A single digit difference may be measured in terms of billions reserves gone ! Don’t forget our CPF form part of our reserves!!! Can Halimah Yacob who is controlling our reserves answer out for the discrepancy shown out? Cannot be keeping silent again, right?

    TR Emeritus, why are you not posting this post out when I show factual logical analysis? Pls explain where is my error if any? If TR Emeritus cannot prove my figures as fake it does sound fishy business for TR Emeritus’s failure to post out my comment, isn’t it? Where is your principle of website?

    Incompetence is covered up or made not so obvious by the power given to them.

    Look at JT arrogance and adamant behavior. There is really nothing the people will do to them.

    This is a failed democracy. Misguided democracy. Main culprit is the people.
    A wise Majority is the only way democracy can be done right. A wise majority will allow a shadow cabinet and this majority will be able to hold the govt accountable and take them to task of required.

    Yahoo!News:
    When asked whether Singaporeans will have to wait until Phase 3 of the post-circuit breaker period for the general election to be held, he said, “I would say that, yes, elections are coming nearer by the day.

    “The sooner we get it done, the earlier we can rally everybody together to deal with these very significant challenges ahead, and also to deal with these very significant uncertainties in the months and years ahead.”

    When asked about the mixed reactions to the Singapore government’s handling of the COVID-19 outbreak so far, Heng said he would rather focus on fully on the battle ahead.

    “I take a very simple approach, which is that right at the moment, we have a very big battle ahead. I want to focus my mind fully on this battle,” he told CNA.

    “This is not a time to ask for a report card. This is a time to focus all our minds. If people have great ideas on how we can do it better, we are prepared to consider any great idea.”

    HSK SHOOT HIMSELF IN THE FOOT!

    HE SAID ELECTIONS ARE COMING NEARER BY THE DAY WHEN ASKED!

    AND WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE SG GOVT’S MISHANDLING OF C19 OUTBREAK, HE SAID HE WOULD RATHER FOCUS FULLY ON THE BATTLE AHEAD. THIS IS NOT A TIME TO ASK FOR A REPORT CARD. THIS IS A TIME TO FOCUS ALL OUR MINDS.
