Wake up and be smarter this time

There is nothing new in this post except to revisit the too many sia suay reasons for giving the oppositions a chance at the polls and the reasons to also give ourselves and our children a watershed chance at the polls too.

The dishonourable son has asked for a strong mandate so that they can better handle the crisis. That is so absurd to me considering their lack of foresight when NGOs had much earlier sounded the alarm regarding foreign worker dormitories.

Their inconsistent policies such as the testing of foreign workers, the wearing of face mask, going out and the face shields etc have made life worse during this C19 crisis for many people.

It is akin to a Primary 6 student who has failed his PSLE asking for a place in Raffles so it would motivate him to do well in future.

Since 2015, we have seen glaring failures after failures in the pap governance. AMK town council corruption case, Keppel corruption case, highly controversial Elected Presidency, half past six succession plan for the 4G leadership, price increases for gas, water and electricity, our stagnant productivity and numerous procurement lapses as highlighted in their own Auditor-General’s report…etc.

Our citizens’ trust in the pap built up over the decades under the premiership of the late Minister Mentor has been dragged through and through the mud by the government of that useless son. Their failures are too many that it may take me days to compile and organise if I were to list more.

Just remember one key point. Never mind whatever credentials or high flyers potential pap electoral candidates may possess, none of them, absolutely zero, will vote in your interest in Parliament if, eg, the government were to push back further your CPF withdrawal age from 65 to 70.

They will vote Yes and in agreement with the pap government because of their Party Whip and that is just one example. Their high flying credentials cannot help or save you.

Wake up and make sure that you have learned to be smarter this time. Opposition MPs will be different. Don’t go for the most impressive but useless ones. Choose those who can and will protect your interest in Parliament this time. Think.

  • $600 out of $23,225:

    Very true. Singaporean voters need to be smarter.

    Give PAP 69%, we get $600 out of $23,225 supposedly used for us.

    Better give PAP 33% (minority government). Then we can get $23,225 out of $23,225.

    When the gov is not scared of voters, these politicians eat up the citizens.

    Be smart, make the gov scared of voters!

  • Too Much Oredi:

    Everything is too much oredi…

    Too many graduates are jobless for a very long time since their graduation because too many foreign ones are flooding the local job market uncontrollably, leaving too few jobs for entry-level graduate jobseekers.

    Cost of living is way too high for most ordinary househoulds that it has become too suffocating and unbearable. In fact, it’s Swisscidal. Forget the heavily promised Swiss Standard of Living.

    Education system is too stressful yet does not produce globally-prepared graduates due to course contents that are irrelevant to economic demands.

    Healthcare sounds more like Hellcare. Too many too complicated healthcare policies. Medisave sounds like Medishave and Medishield, Medishid. Eldershield, Careshield and whatever nonsensical shields are meant to erode and deplete the Medisave account to zilch.

    Public housing prices are crucifying young families, enslaving them to longterm housing loan, leaving too little savings for adequate retirement.

    It’s really, really too much oredi. Enuf is Enuf..!

  • guts to take on the despots:

    What the oppositions need that make the differnce is guts, guts to take on the despots and not let them get away with abuses. Only two have proven that they have the guts, JBJ and Dr. Chee.

    KJ and Lim Tean also show signs they have the guts too although yet to be truly proven.

    THINK Simon is RIGHT.

    In the coming Pandemic ERECTION, VOTE FOR the CANDIDATE/PARTY WHO HAS THE HUMAN TOUCH, EMPATHY for the people esp the COMMON FOLKS! PERIOD. GIVEN THE CURRENT DIRE SITUATION OUR COUNTRY IS NOW EXPERIENCING, WE REALLY NEED QUALITY CANDIDATES TO HELP US THROUGH THE CRISIS! WE WANT CANDIDATE WHO ANSWERS THE CALLING OF THE COUNTRY.

    DON’T VOTE FOR THE CANDIDATE who HAS NO HUMAN TOUCH AND EMPATHY, WHO TALKS AND SMILES ONLY, AND NO ACTION, even though he HAS SCORED 10As in his A Level Exam, TRIPLE As in the Cambridge U Exam! WE DEFINITELY AND CERTAINLY DON’T NEED CANDIDATE WHO IN FRONT OF THE PUBLIC AND THE FIACKING PRESS, SPEAKS LIKE AN ANGEL AND ACTS LIKE A CARING PERSON, BUT BEHIND CALLING THE CITIZEN AS XIA SUAYS AND IDIOTS! WE DON’T WANT CANDIDATE WHO WANTS TO “SERVE” THE CUNTRY SOLELY FOR THE OBSCENE WORLD HIGHEST SALARY HE OR SHE WOULD GET UPON SNEAKING INTO PARLEEMENT,

    Like Simon always say: THINK FOR YOUR FUTURE, YOUR CHILDREN AND THEIR CHILDREN CHILDREN FUTURE AND OUR COUNTRY FUTURE, BEFORE YOU CAST YOUR VOTE. THIS IS THE ONE AND ONLY CHANCE FOR ALL OF US TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY! Period.

  • JOBLESS GADUATES:

    Growing number of Jobless Graduates / Young Citizens

    1. Too many foreign PMETs flooding the job market.

    2. Elderly are forced to continue working way beyond
    retirement age due to shifting CPF Drawdown Age from
    55 to 60 to 65 to…70?
    They have no choice but to cling onto their jobs,
    leaving not much jobs for entry-level jobseekers.

    3. Without jobs, graduates could not gain valuable
    and viable work experience. Hence, the economic drift.
    And they could easily be overtaken by the
    “cheaperer, fasterer” instant foreigners.

    4. Living in a World of Frustation leading to widespread
    Depression, aggraveted by Covidemic.

  • Fan of Ivan Lim PAP:

    If Singaporeans can wake up Singapore political Kia su would not have become world worst for decades already.

    I guarantee all of you will never see the day Singapore is liberated.

    I had to be convinced of this after not giving up for two decades on Singapore.
    Now I have given up on Singaporeans.
    They are basically brainwashed and waiting for instructions.
    No independent thinking. Excellent as soldiers and employees.
    And most know what I mean but feel ashamed to admit it only.

  • oxygen:

    WAS PARLIAMENT DISSOLVED AND A FRESH MANDATE SOUGHT because PAPpypolitics is UNCOMFORTABLE AND KNOWINGLY COMPELLED it is INADEQUATE of existing mandate last week to combat the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic?

    IF SO, IT HAS ALREADY FAILED WITH OVER 90 percent of the seats in the house.

    What difference would over 20 fresh virgin inductees – some can’t even speak confidently into a video recording and one dropped out before the contest – without political experience and/or powerful economic skill credentials to lift PAPpypolitic’s capacity to fight back the pandemic?

    MY SUSPICION IS THAT PAPpypolitics is either seeking to complete its domination of political hegemony, extend its political longevity or a licence to do whatever its wishes to, unchallenged of transparency and accountability, post-election or BOTH.

    A LOT OF NATIVE PEASANTS WILL BE LEFT TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES because it is too expensive to feed the peasants NOW THAT THE TRANSPORT, TOURISM, RETAIL AND BANKING SECTOR will fall apart after the 3 months sustenance costing $100 billion expires and hundreds of thousands of those foreigners living the dorms must be fed to keep social order.

    PAPpypolitics can’t wait for an election moment to face an election in a sea of hunger flooding the entire electoral landscape. That is why it must be now before reality hits home.

  • opposition dude:

    Yup, without a strong opposition PAP will just continue thinking that all is well and that we Singaporeans only know how to kpkb. We sent them a strong signal in 2011 when we kicked out 2 useless ministers from Aljunied and we need to do the same again on 10 July.

    Jln Besar voters, Marsiling – Yew Tee voters and Tanjong Pagar voters have the chance to show PAP that they mean business this time so please don’t waste your votes hor.

    West Coast voters I hope you all vote in Dr Tan, we need him to speak up for us. Hopefully SDP and WP can win a few seats too.

    Come on fellow Singaporeans, it’s time to do your REAL national duty for your country!

  • Samuel s:

    Always remember PAP was returned to rule the country, why she always calls for strong mandate in order to better tackle the uncertainties ahead. For the past 50 years she still unable to learn how to resolve uncertainties – she always claimed PAP has good track records and only she can help bring the country ahead, why then request us to give her strong mandate. As long as she wins the election she should be able to deliver what is promised.

  • Dato:

    Too many paper Generals.
    Too many squeaky clean scholars.
    Too many Union leaders.

    All their life, they have never worked in a real world environment.
    All their life, they are surrounded by people and subordinates, wanting to please them, wanting to make them look good.
    How can they feel or understand the real world situations?

    1. Do we need so many Member of Parliaments?
    2. None of them have brought up areas of improvement or things to amend in our old old laws.
    3. How many of them actually attends the parliament sessions?
    4. When shit hits the fan…no Ministers dare make any decision – instead, they set up so called EXPERT committee to make a collective decision on behalf of the Ministry. So they are never accountable.

    Voting for PAP have never really improved lives of the citizens.
    We are often ridiculed, rejected, and stone-walled.

    We have all the legislations and statutes in place, any change of MPs or Ministers….all the policies are still in place.

    Go ahead. Make a difference today.

  • MOUNTAIN TORTISE:

    The main problem with voters they are so afraid if PAP fall we will sink, many such voters like compare pigeon eggs against dinosaur egg, they thinks our current govt handles covid 19 better than many other countries, like America, Italy blah blah blah
    If u think they manage covid 19 better than many other countries u maybe very wrong
    If govt hv listen to alternative voices, there was a petition in Jan or Feb to prevent oversea guest entering Sin, there were voices concerning dormitories, if govt hv heeded these alternative voices, was CB necessary? Not forgetting govt fail alert citizen in advance to stock up basic necesseties but instead gave about 4 days notice causing many to panic, rushing to supermarkets, hoarding food supplies, failure give businesses time to execute WFH arrangement?
    What they d to show us, this is how to handle a crisis? Can we trust they can handle another crisis of even bigger scale?
    Vote wisely, we still hv plenty good, better able man n women who is willing n hv capacity to lead us to a better tomolo
