I Am Sengkang Voter

Before this election, my ward is under Punggol East SMC which was won by Mr. Charles Chong. Before Charles Chong, the ward was under WP’s Li Li Lian. When the ward was under WP, the area was very clean, the lifts especially. After Charles Chong took over, the area was dirtier than before I asked the cleaners, they told me the contractor reduced the manpower, putting less people but covering more blocks and the number was quite ridiculous. I never saw Mr Chong before he won Punggol East or after, he was never in the vicinity, his posters were there during the festive seasons, the same picture photo-shopped with different backgrounds. When PAP wards increased service and conservancy fees several times, I did not see any improvement in the cleanliness. I only saw the cleaners coming in lorry to clean the estate whenever there is assessment in town council cleanliness report cards, this is to me very wrong, they were playing the system.So if any voter tells you opposition can’t run town council, don’t let them bluff you.

The recent election, the PAP candidate came to knock on my door. I asked him about the 6.9M or 10M question, he did not have answers for me. The reason being, I know on my floor alone, there are four unemployed local PMETs, one end up as security guard, one driving PHV and they are like in their forties. Of course he asked me if they had gone to WSG or E2i, I told him they said they kept asking them to write CVs and still no job and finally told them to be security guard because it is better to be employed than to be jobless. So this PAP candidate looked really bad with no answers. I said I only saw you guys every five years, after this you will disappear and will come back next election, he looked as if resigned to my comment. He thanked me and left, without saying any advice or anything. Of course this is something he can’t solve and will not solve, this is caused by the policies of his party he is planning to contest.

The day after losing Sengkang GRC, the state media is in swing to shape the reasons to why they lost, they are trying to plant reasons in the minds of future voters. Talking about no amenities and no coffee shops but avoided the key reasons to the loss. Basically what they wanted to do is shape the voters into focusing on upgrading infrastructure which PAP is always using to win votes. And the second day after the GE, state media is already talking about change to CPF to curb usage for buying property.

As a Sengkang voter, I am sharing my views on why they lost, it is little to do with Lam’s PMD fiasco. It is real anger with PAP failed policies. If you look carefully, many wards nearly fell to the opposition, even strong hold like West Coast nearly falling to first time opposition PSP. Singaporeans are by and large timd and fearful sheep, they need a lot of courage to vote against PAP due to years of brainwashing in school or state controlled media. So to take one person to vote against PAP, the barrier is quite high.

The key reasons I could suggest are:

1. 6.9M/10M is too much for Singapore, many locals are finding hard to get jobs and job security is a big issue. At this stage, the government will not commit that they are not implementing it just like they said 6.9M is just a planning parameter. The government kept insisting that the door must remain open and let foreigners compete in all sectors. This explains why tourists are landing jobs and locals are taking months.

2. Pro foreigner policies: Becoming very obvious and locals are often discriminated at work place or finding jobs when the hiring manager or the HR is a foreigner. Locals feel they are now the third class in their own backyard.

3. Public Housing getting really expensive: Most young people will need to carry twenty five years loan with no job security to secure a diminishing pigeon hole.

4. Alarming numbers of local PMETs becoming self employed as PHV drivers, Grab Food Deliveries, Real Estate Agents or Insurance Agent at relatively young age.

5. Cost of living is getting scary.

6. CPF changes are frequent and each change citizens end up losing more benefits or entrap.

7. Repressive law to curb freedom of speech and rights.

These are some major issues that I could relate.

I believe WP looks to be a promising party with good vision. Low retired at his peak to let new blood transits, he does not hold on to power. I had seen Pritnam and him several times in Bedok Reservoir and Hougang, sometimes during weekend and week days, they really work very hard and very approachable. These MPs connect with the ground unlike PAP MPs, usually you never see them or they are the usual arrogant and snobbish like Josephine or Shamugam. Of course we know oppositions does not have real power to change thing but if they don’t grow, our situation will be even worst with one party absolute. There might be some inconvenience but for the greater good of Singaporean policies, you need a strong opposition that will help to air our views.

Over the years, the incumbent has become very arrogant, they usually talked down oppositions or public. They don’t attend parliament much, the parliament is usually empty, which means the MPs are not debating policies. I do understand that most people vote the PAP brand, they don’t care who is the MP, she can be a paper general or she talks like Josephine, they will still vote them in. The incumbent is an old school and still using old school method of fear, mud sling and controlling the media and suppressing speech. Bridget, the political analyst who was never invited to give her thoughts said this incumbent would pretend to listen but continue to do the same back in 2011. And she is right, nothing has changed, the marketing and talk always been good but the actions never changed.

I believe whether 6.9M or 10M, it is no longer a planning parameter, it has been in motion, our population had grown from 4.8M to 6M and would continue to grow. They will convert foreigners to locals and new citizens because it keeps unemployment rate low (PR is grouped into locals) and new citizens will add to their vote base. This strategy will never change, you can’t teach old dogs (old dogs will not retire soon unlike Low) new tricks. Expect CPF changes, GST 9% and more policies to cream your savings soon. Do not be surprised, it has always been this way for last decade.

I am happy to have voted more oppositions into parliament and be part of the new history. Yes. They have only ten but at least you have ten persons fighting for your rights and helping you to air whats not right for Singapore and Singaporeans. That is why I voted for WP and will continue to vote for more oppositions into parliament till they can’t suka suka change the constitution.

    Senkang now but Tengah in future when the millenials get married and have children. We could well see a Tengah GRC won by the opposition soon enough.

    Mandy is correct in saying the PAP won’t change and I’m dead sure this is the conclusion a lot of people have made as well. The 3G are still in charge so they won’t be changing their way of doing things since they are so used to them liao.

    Expect more “we know better than you” policies, arrogant statements on why they are the best because they saved so much in the reserves for a rainy day and of course, yearly transport fare hikes and the cost of living shooting up again. We can also expect the unemployment rate to be at 3% since PAP won’t be making any effort to bring it down anyway.

    POFMA will be used more frequently in this election cycle and oh yes, you can expect more aliens to be let in with the same old excuses about us not having the right skills or there aren’t enough people. Expect to read about a 6 million population by 2024.

    All in all, same old nonsense that no one should be surprised about.

  • pap is now oppo in Spore:

    first, all the OPPO parties other than WP and PSP, please fold and join WP or PSP.

    if you want to work for your children’s future, and you live in the east, join WP to topple pap east coast and pap marine parade.

    if you want a more caring society before you die off, and you live in the west, join PSP to topple pap west coast and all such in the west.

    second, no need to demolish pap completely during GE2024. leave them a few seats here and there so that we can see with our eyes how quickly all the businessmen businesswomen who crowd around pap PA for t-shirt contracts disappear or dissociate from ever being near pap.

    second, demolish pap completely in the following GE2029. and put everyone of them with unaccountable S$m to jail.

    I think it is People’s Voice Party that proposes HR staff to be Singaporeans. Now I know why.

    I just completed my contract in the IT industry, which some of you will know looks like it’s dominated by India Indians (how on earth does India has global IT leadership, I need to google to understand!). Not only that, companies operate under the subcontract business model, meaning you (or rather I myself in my case) are not directly employed by the IT vendor, but assigned to it by the payroll (recruitment) agency that employs you.

    I have a case pending at TADM for unpaid OT wages, simply because I was left to fend for myself when my payroll/contract consultant or the IT vendor’s manager above me did not take charge/take responsibility of the situation when I should be concentrating on my job! If these companies do not understand or choose to ignore local corporate practices and labour laws, I suggest they balik kampung!

  • Realistically:

    M’am: Yours is the ONLY objective comment on the swing against the PAPies.

    Even though I also live in an HDB flat, I have no complaints about the cleanliness in my PAPie run TC.

    The main reasons for the swing against the PAPie are their arrogance and incompetence and being self-serving, resulting in epic failures, even before the COVID-19 pandemic………which of course NONE of the so-called oppos, including the wayang party, can understand and therefore DEBATE the issues whether in Parliament on social media.

    Much has been written about Jamus Lim’s performance in the 1st televised debate among PSP, SDP & WP against PAPie Vivian Balakrishnan.

    I hv YET to see Jamus Lim alleged “maths” about reducing foreigners and how the wayang party could create “GOOD JOBS” without even mentioning what he/the wayang party meant by “good”……..is good jobs meaning $5k/month, $7k or whatever which is more than the current around $3k/month?

    More like s*ake oil talk rather than concrete and practical ideas.

    Yes, Taikuofen politicians love to suppress, repress and oppress the people instead of serving them. Not anymore. People have awaken, spoken their piece and send a very clear signal. The contending centre forwards will score more goals.

    So, keep increasing prices of public goods at their whims and fancies. And the people will retaliate even more. Uncaring, intransparent, dishonorable politicians will eventually know their fate.

  • See no of naturalised citizens:

    “If you look carefully, many wards nearly fell to the opposition, even strong hold like West Coast nearly falling to first time opposition PSP. Singaporeans are by and large timd and fearful sheep, they need a lot of courage to vote against PAP due to years of brainwashing in school or state controlled media. So to take one person to vote against PAP, the barrier is quite high.”

    Do look carefully why Strong holds like East Coast and West Coast has fallen to the ruling parties. Many true blue Singaporeans have done their part. The main reason I would think is that there are far too many foreigners converted to citizens. At East Coast, many of the condos are occupied by naturalised Indian citizens who owe loyality to the ruling party with job and no necessity to serving NS with conversion. You can see many international indian compus opening up in East Coast area for this high salaried employed in Spore likely gotten in through ceca and then converted to citizens. Likewise west coast and bukit timah region where rich foreigners find Singapore a haven as there is no estate duty too. With the influx of these foreigner and given citizens, it is difficult for the voting to reflect the sentiments of true blue citizens. Even naturalised citizens from china claimed to one day reach to more than 50% cf with local true borne citizens. Some of these chinese converted citizen even claim that our citizens are lowly educated. The image given on the need for such foreigners gave false sense of supermacy to these foreigners. I wonder why the govt is doing such at the expense of true borne citizens.

    @ NOT INTERNET BRIGADE

    I DON’T HAVE THE POPULATION STATS but one can notice that JT left familiar ground (Bishan-Toa Payoh GRC) to Jalan Besar GRC bunker for good reason/s. They done their home work. Bishan Toa Payoh is “home turf”, JT have invested a lot of time/energy in grassroot work, but “deserted” it at the last moment of needs of her constituents.

    PAPpypolitics are well-known to have hired “private” research entity (owned by a Ministry or PA in reality) to do profile and sentiment survey – that is why PRESENT TENSE upon election result announced – CORRECTLY CONCLUDED THAT IT IS THE YOUNGER GENERATION WHO VOTED AGAINST THEM NATIONALLY.

    PAPpypolitics must have done sentiment research or grassroot must have advised of shaky ground – voters there include a cross section of population notably “wealthier” (more expensive accommodation and sazzy place to live) younger in age than national profile but itching towards restlessness.

    Jalan Besar is the contrast of that – no new “upmarket” housing development like Bishan-Toa Payoh or Seng Kang GRC – sleepy old town like living filled with higher density of aged profile – those above 60s are brainwashed, easily seduced by election lolly of TIMELY cash handout (JUST BEFORE THE ELECTION) thinking it came from “father christmas” or “mother Theresa” (when it is confiscated money via backdoor indirect taxes, cpf clawback of reduced rate of return, higher healthcare charges in hospitals etc)., They are digitally blind especially the women folk – Lim Tean doesn’t reach them or interpreted as “trouble-maker ungrateful” in disbelief.

    So I suspect the answer to your riddle lies in DEMOGRAPHIC, ELECTION LOLLY, and the residual of PG and Merdeka Generation lolly gimmicks.

    Jalan Besar GRC is the contrast of Hougang SMC – the ground is simply INFERTILE OF CULTIVATION FOR THE NON-INCUMBENT bidder. Jalan Besar GRC unlike Toa Payoh-Bishan is largely not affected by PAPpypolitic/PAPpynomics toxic Population Recycling Economics of PMETs retrenchment. So no matter how much Lim Tean correctly “manures” the ground, there is no germination, no crop cultivation and thus no victory crop harvest to reap for all his energy, efforts and pointed truthful analysis via digital platform (Greek to over 60s) now.

    ANYONE ANY OTHER THOUGHTS???

    pap PA paid IBs are starting to resurface and their action plan seems to be saying Sengkang by-election soon. good try. we don’t think so. because even if by election is true, WP shall win by an even bigger margin than now.

    pap is not that stupid. notice the folks pap fielded in Aljunied. not one of them of any caliber. no Heng no Chan no Ong no nothing but just a bunch of suicide squad for show only.

  • Soccerbetting2:

    Yesterday, I was below my flat and saw a insectide van company spraying liquid insectide to the drains below to rid of mosquitos breeding due to the rising dengue problem.

    Today morning, I went down my flat area next few block . I sit down at one of the seat below under one hdb block. There was an Indian worker sweeping the floor.
    1)he (indian worker) sweep the floor.
    2)next, he emptied the rubbish from the black disposal bag of green rubbish bin into another container . After he completed his job, he walk away.
    3) After some minutes, I decide to go home. As I passed by that green rubbish bin, I notice two things.
    One thing is that the black plastic bag looks old and obviously Indian worker emptied rubbish in that green bin but did not change out that old black plastic disposable bag into a new one. Second thing I noticed it there are at least a few dozens of between 1-2mm type of flies coming out of that green rubbish bin that had been just emptied by worker. Look like midges type of blood sucking flies which bites cause you to be sharp, burning or stinging sensation. I have killed some of these “midges”, and when smash, they show red color. Since it is red, indicate blood that they have sucked. I kick that green bin lightly, out come more dozens of midges and when kick a bit harder, more dozens of midges come out of that green rubbish bin that was just emptied. This type of midges is biting a lot of Punggol residents especially at night. And this is not the first time that I see tons of midges coming out of those green rubbish bins in Punggol.It happens many times already. If the mentality of Punggol Town council keep emptied rubbish from green bin to another bin without regularly changing out those black plastic disposal bag that fitted on top of the container inside the green rubbish bin, this is a good place for midges to hide, multiply in huge amount to bite residents until they become sick. Such type of midges cannot be ruled out as disease carrier. One bite from the midge may cause lumps that pain people for half an hour or so. So what is the problem?
    a) worker emptied black plastic bag from green bin never check for any remaining midges hiding there and ensure no midges inside when they left.
    b) the failure to change out black plastic bag found inside green rubbish bin on a regular basis to new ones in per week basis or whatever regular frequency.
    Cost saving from retaining black plastic bag should not be compromised with the health of residents who had already paid S&CC fees that obviously include such regular black plastic bag changing inside green rubbish bin.

    So after spraying insect, is mosquitos problem solved? Why not? This is because the rubbish bin black plastic bag is all along never changed consistently in all town council with lots of  mosquitos breed in them. So all these mosquitoes breed from external environment rubbish bin plastic bag will fly into resident internal environment homes and residents got fine again. Is that correct?

    I am not saying mosquito breeding solely come from the black plastic bags in the green rubbish bin, get that right. Mosquitoes breeding come from a whole lot of sources especially in external environment. When dengue kill so many people, why is both Amy Khor Lean Suan and Masagos Zulkifli not removed off from their position. Who is heading the PM position of Singapore and that the PM maybe still “sleeping”?

    Does raising the amount of fines from $200 to $300 for household who have mosquitos breeding in more than one place, will lead to less dengue problem? Even if fines is to be raised from $200 to $2000 overnight, will dengue be solved? The answer is clearly no. So why raise fines in the first place when dengue problem is not going to be solved by raising fines? $200 fines is already overboard and such amount fined  is wi**** system. Solve problem need to tackle the root cause of the problem.

    Me thinks different from you. The millennials VOTED FOR COUNTRY, not party or brand – their loyalty can’t be bought with election lolly nor intimidated by threat or gutter politics – the totality of these destroys the country.

    Haven’t you think of your children and future generation, if you focused is solely on “what is it in for me, now??” political short-sightedness.

    I find this very troubling in some of my peer Baby Boomers – it is me-and-for-me benefit culture and country can go to the puppy mindset is very sad.

    What right do Millennials have to ‘usurp’ the hard works of Baby-Boomers who built up this nation with their Blood, Sweats and Tears?
    I think you are confused with the ‘“what is it in for me, now??” This should be more relevant a question asked by the millennials themselves. Having enjoying the fruits of their parents, they’re taking things for granted

    Example: Founders ‘Bak Kut Teh’ son asking for donations
    shows the typical millennials of today. His father’s hard work lavished away by son. Read about it.

    Why not you come down here and get a true millennial’s mentality here AND surely not sitting on your ‘Australia telescopic lop-sided’ perch? AND I am not being prejudiced by just one example above.

    Nay, I care about the future generations. That’s why I said the above words.

    I don’t think this group of millennials are fighting for your so-called ‘COUNTRY’. Just fighting for a ‘share in what the pioneers/merdeka had rightly earned’ THE EASY WAY TO TRANSFER ASSETS AND RICHES EARNED BY OTHERS through political craftworks. Why not Ask them to go out and earn it instead and NOT to take what is not theirs? ‘Parasites’ as one would call???

    Yes, Singaporeans squandered it away on wine and women just like the loud mouth Zhenzidan here.

    When people like Zhenzidan finished their money on wine and women, they will turn around and demand that the country use taxpayer money take care of them.

    @ It Is Millennials, Stupid:

    MATE, my telescopic perch isn’t of such long distance of visual reach. And I can’t comprehend how your and other BBoomer generations accumulated wealth can ever be “usurped” by millennials if you don’t allow that to happen. You can always give your “property-wealth” to some public institution be that educational or healthcare or simply homes for kids from broken families etc etc.

    It Is Millennials, Stupid: What right do Millennials have to ‘usurp’ the hard works of Baby-Boomers who built up this nation with their Blood, Sweats and Tears?

    That usurpation will be facilitated of outcome with only your participated complicity.

    And not all BBoomer generation are success story of nation building contribution. A smaller proportion of them are truly financially independent, so there is nothing for millennial to usurp. Those who ventured out or test their guts, risks and skills in different terrains have more chances of success then those cocooned inside LEE-jiapore.

    I have friends who “trained” their kids to be financially independent – give them the seed capital, once off only – you either make a success of it or you become someone’s employ if you are not good enough. And their kids once completed uni don’t want to be employed. Like father, like son – THEY VENTURED OUT ON THEIR OWN WITH VARYING SUCCESS till now.

    These are definitely NOT PARASITES of your mind’s construction.

    As to how they vote, nobody except each millenial know. If they have an independent minds just like their own business enterprises they undertake now, THAT IS VERY GOOD – on my book.

    There are two basic broad characterisation of people

    - those who employ and
    - those who seek employment

    Those who employ are NOT SLAVISH of mind thoughts, they face challenges every day of making how their business works. They interact with changes in the environment, adaptive, innovative and risks-taking always. They are not likely to be slavish follower of someone’s thought, be that politic or business.

    No business outcome, no month end paycheck, maybe only writing out payment cheque to those they employed.

    I doubt they vote on party line, MORE LIKELY WHAT IS GOOD FOR COUNTRY because if the economy is badly managed, THEIR BUSINESS WILL DIE.

    so it is hard to generalise all millennials who don’t vote for PAPpypolitics are “parasitic” of usurpation urges and BBoomer generation should be vindictive against them for their independent votes/thoughts.

    there will be different kinds ,or,at least 2 kinds of millennials as there are BBoomers.

    But,i would say more good BBoomers than there are millennials.
    Millennials tend to be more self-centred, which to me,is different from being self-actualisation?

    Those who well are few.
    Either they are super smart or well-brought by their good BBOOMER-PARENTS who also are able to support them financially in the first place?

    But,by and large,millennials tend toward secularism in my opinion crafted from keen observations.

    I hope MORALS CAN RETURN TO HUMAN RACE,Millennials,BB00mers or older people.

    @ It Is Millennials, Stupid:

    MATE, there is some true to the “dictum” of you are what you eat and so is you are what you read too. I like your mention of America..best start-ups and pioneer entrepreneurs.

    I invite you to read this “best seller” of the 1970s written by Charles A Reich.

    The Greening of America is a 1970 book by Charles A. Reich. It is a paean to the counterculture of the 1960s and its values.The book was originally published by Random House.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Greening_of_America

    I also read stuffs by Emery & Trist like this

    The Causal Texture of Organizational
    Environments

    https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/47fc/42800cc64031c6b749c30b7eb9431e50e8f3.pdf?_ga=2.53268392.1824717848.1595035519-951208923.1595035519

    AND I LOOK BACK NOW WHY AMERICA IS SO SUCCESSFUL of its entrepreneurial culture.

    Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and also the founders of Digital Equipment Corporation are university drop-out who “ran away” from mainstream establishment culture. And look at the establishment type mould of MBAs from Harvard and Stanford hiding in ivory tower bunkers of Wall Street – once retrenched – few find a pathway to even sustenance subsistence post GFC.

    THE COUNTER-CULTURE not toeing establishment is the pathway to entrepreneurial wit and risks taking – America is this country that no matter what turbulence hit them, IT WILL REDISCOVER ITSELF, GERMINATES AND REJUVENATE after repeated failings.

    The robotic sterile establishment type (even scholarly) left much to be desired of any capacity of discovering their own financial independence, let alone enterpreneurial venture into unknown to find success.

    Me thinks LEE-jiapore has lean too much on establishment mindset – blind to realities, turbulence and changing environment engulfing them. In crisis, we vaporize to frozen death of submission.

    Imagine this – JT told the nation – I am not that important – at a time and moment when the nation depended on her judgment/decision-taking in the DORM PANDEMIC OUTBREAK OVERWHELMING our survival escape route. Another stat board CEO told forum audience this – I have a right to refuse to answer any question. What is she paid for???

    All these whilst Ravi Menon, our Central Bank boss, now told the nation – our economy is in dire straits.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/16/singapore-economy-still-dire-amid-global-resurgence-in-coronavirus-mas-says.html

    HOW DID WE GOT HERE??

    HAVE ANYONE NOTICED YET this observation? WP SengKang GRC team is solidly well-rounded

    - an economics professor
    - equities analyst (financial market experience)
    - proven activist (mind and soul of nation building)
    - corporate lawyer (business law)

    Not a single PAPpypolitic GRC team can match of rounded experience.

    If WP fielded this SengKang GRC team in East Coast GRC, the earthquake in the aftermath will see buildings tumbling down – PAPpypolitics won’t be able to find where is Flubbing East Coast Heng.
