The Incompetence Of The PAP 4G And Your Economic Insecurity

Now You Know why the GE was called when it was called.

A few days after the votes were counted, Singaporeans found out that the GDP had contracted by more than 41% in the 2nd quarter.

And look at the appalling jobs figures released a short while ago!

Number of workers, excluding foreign domestic maids, plunged by 121,800 in the 2nd quarter alone. Total number of jobs lost in 1st half of the year – 147,500! Unemployment figure for Singaporeans rose from 3.5% to 4%.

And all the while Lee Hsien Loong was claiming the 4G leaders had done a good job in containing the Covid crisis. It was the most delusional statement ever made!

Josephine Teo will go down in the history of Singapore as not only the worst Manpower Minister, but also the most incompetent person ever to be appointed a Minister. Four months after the outbreak in the foreign workers’ dormitories, the situation is still not under control and daily new cases are still in the hundreds Everyday.

While Singaporeans are losing jobs, many new jobs have been created for PAP MPs as political office holders! What an irony!

The PAP’s GE manifesto of Your Jobs, Your lives, Your Future sounds more like a parody! Seriously, you think you have a brighter future and economic security under this bunch of incompetents?

Let’s see how many real and good paying jobs they are able to create between now and the next GE!

    Is WITHHOLDING REAL STATISTICS N ECONOMIC DATA A KIND OF OFFENCE UNDER POFMA?
    IF NOT,CAN WP TABLE FOR THIS TO BE DEBATED IN THE LAW-MAKING HOUSE?

    FTs/PRs are NOT SINGAPOREANS.
    LUMPING THEM WITH SGS IS CONFUSING THE PUBLIC AS THE PROPORTION OF FTs/PRs in our national statistics is rather HIGH compared to other countries with reputable governance?

    The worse is yet to come…more jobs will be lost ahead.
    Hope the elected MPs will do their part to help the badly affected Singaporean.
    While they and the civil servants jobs are not affected, Should work hard for those who are…it is a crisis of a lifetime.
    Many are suffering …will get worse when the job support end…

    Singapreans weren’t taken in by PAP’s nonsense this GE if you look at the results. Remember the following figures below.

    - Almost 9% drop in vote share

    - Another GRC lost

    - 4 monkeys kicked out by voters

    All I heard about during campaigning was PAP being loh soh on JOBS JOBS JOBS daily. They didn’t dare mention once about their handling of Covid nor of their 4G since they knew they screwed up spectacularly for both.

    And after the results even Shanmugam admitted that the middle class voted against them because of the deep pain suffered by Covid. I’m pretty sure a good number of them lost their jobs by the time they voted and weren’t convinced that they would be employed again anytime soon despite PAP’s jobs jobs jobs nonsense. In short, almost 40% of voters did not have faith in PAP.

    PAP will just do window dressing this election cycle, you can expect the number of locals driving for Grab and delivering food to increase for sure. Once the effects of this pandemic are gone we can also expect all the aliens who lost their jobs to be here on tourisy visas and hey presto, they will easily find employment before you know it!

    When lhl declared that PAP did a great job during the pandemic, what he really meant was that every PAP minister will not lose their job.
    In fact maybe these same PAP ministers will get a pay rise & a generous bonus too.

    Nothing is off the table as far as PAP is concerned.
    They had the power & authority to do what they want.
    And that PAP president will of course readily agreed & approved whatever is told to agree & approve.

    And about accusations?
    Just get the 83 PAP MPS to parliament to rubber-stamp whatever lhl want to say & it’s case closed on record too.

    All these done without a tiny bit of shame. It’s pretty amazing how these PAP MPS can have such zero pride in them.

    As for MOM, go figure this riddle out. JT told the nation in election hustings – I AM NOT THAT IMPORTANT.

    she didn't understand her job: J.Teo simply didn’t understand her job.

    AFTER THE ELECTION, she has gone back to the job where she “confessed” her role and presumably “contribution” is either “irrelevant” or “insignificant” or BOTH.

    CRUEL IRONY OF PARODY for retrenched Sinkies???

    Maybe she should try another portfolio like Trade and Industry and see the results thereafter??

    THE ONGOING NERVOUS STEEP EROSION OF STOCK PRICES ON SGX so-called “blue-chip” stocks and second liners SPEAKS volume of ominous DOWNSIDE RISK REPRICING of all assets classes in LEE-jiapore.

    Take a look at SIA, Sembawang Industries, Sembcorp Marine, SPH share prices – some are at 52-weeks low and concurrently even more depressed than their 2009 GFC low. AND STILL FALLING for SIA despite huge restructuring and cash injection rescue. Pretty amazing of economic impact of Covid-19.

    The US dollar is trashed to multi-year low and Sing$ should be rising in contrast as counter-currency matching conversion (quite unlike Euro/Japanese Yen, Chinese Yuan A$ or Canadian $) BUT INSTEAD FALLING TOGETHER IN TANDEM.

    This speaks volume of the relative competitiveness weakness of our state of economy relative the rest of the world except the US (where structural fiscal deficit/debt is funded out of Fed money printing).

    Lim Tean :Let’s see how many real and good paying jobs they are able to create between now and the next GE!

    I see massive retrenchment forward – so the rhetorical shout out of manifesto of – your job, your life, and your future – is just PAPpynolitic’s fragrant fart of fiction.

    Columns of economic pillars from transportation, trade, tourism and retails (and the banks to follow) just fell off the cliff side. Few will recover.

    So skills, even hard working dedication does not secure your job. Maybe cheaper in temp roles.

    How can stock prices and real estate sustain of values where every inhabitants can barely earn a subsistence survival?

    BOUTS OF PERIODIC UNEMPLOYMENT IS THE NORM FROM THIS POINT.

    Those heavily in debt won’t find an escape route – this is the truth of your job, your life and your future which PAPpypolitics in 2020 election husting does NOT SPEAK EXPLICITLY ABOUT.

    Dun think that they are competent at all.

    In school, we face practicals, tests, exams, etc.. to gauge our competency in handling the subject matter.

    Same as at work, we face problems, pain-points, bottlenecks, etc.. and we need to solve them if our bosses kick us out.

    Now that the PAPpies and its so-called 4G leaders have faced Covid – the biggest exam of their term. Covid resulted in what they termed as “technical recession”. Just call a spade a spade lah.. It is RECESSION.

    Despite having first class honours, multiple scholarships (President Scholars, SAFOS, etc), supposedly smartest in the country, highest paid politicians in the world, how have they performed in this Covid exam? How have they performed relative to other countries’ politicians? The NZ, Aus, TW, VN, HK, Macau? Where is our gold standard?

    Now all the skeletons starting to come out of the closet. After winning GE, news of recession released. Retrenchment up. Unemployment up. Businesses kaput up. Their combined Cabinet salaries up. GST will up.

    What about your salaries? Your savings? Your job security? Your job prospects? Good luck Sinkies.

    To the PAP, Malaysians are here to help in SG’s economy.

    Our plumbers and electricians need licences to work but not the Malaysians.

    Our PAP thinks Malaysians spend money here, not realising that Malaysians bought their foods before entering SG to work, they don’t spend a single cent in SG.

    So whatever high speed train and RTS, only benefit the Malaysians and not Singaporeans.

    THERE IS, TO MY KNOWLEDGE, no happy endings for long-term investors in India. It is a long history of SOVEREIGN RISKS lasting decades – that place is cowboy town right up to the political apex.

    That is why no one -including local Indian entrepreneurs in infrastructural or mining projects with long lead times of permitting to actual construction and FIRST cash flow generation.

    ONLY BODOH OR BLIND INVESTORS put their money there.

    I am NOT averse to invest in stocks with business projects in places like Laos, Papua New Guinea, Solomon island, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Mexico, Ghana, Cote de Ivore, Burkina Faso, Guinea or Ecuador BUT NOT IN INDIA.

    Anyway, the US dollar is continuiing its plunging down depth and the bond market is rallying despite negative yields in EU today.

    The message from the financial market is that the global economy, the credit market (bond debt borrowing) and the currency markets are increasingly jittery of structural deficit sovereign borrowings funded by Fed money printing and ECB bond buying.

    Peasants’ money will be confiscated and stolen by this route to pay for debt binge. Treasury bond yield is collapsing in EU, and there are big buyers as if negative yield sovereign borrowing is “safe haven” investing instead of gradually, then suddenly, sovereign bankruptcy and collapse.

    At this rate of plunging dive of US$ and falling treasury bond yield, NO ONE SHOULD BE SURPRISED that global economy will collapse into a depression-like abyss soon.

    Financial markets look set for a whirlwind turmoil and all illiquid assets like real estate will see a blink-of-the-eye speed of SUDDEN DEATH DEFYING DOWNWARD RE-PRICING.

    MAS warned of our dire economic outlook and have even call the banks to cut dividend payout to shore up their balance sheet.

  • Young children guinea pi:

    US medical expert in US faced an idiot who went against his expert advice of not sending the children back to school without preparing for their safety. Mask isn’t sufficient. They should be issued disposable body length coat wear n disposable face mask n gloves which they can discard after each day. The wisest will be to let them stay at home n continue the cyber classroom. The idiot refused n no protective gears were provided both to the children n teachers. The results quikly showed children n school staff n their family added on to the daily increase infected. Singaporeans know the counterpart idiot in SIN do not have school going children. But to make young children as guinea pigs for the greed to open up the finacial is a sign of lesser than pigs n dogs among the FG of PAPPSTLBs Despicable, irresponsible as they earlier that they have claim ZERO accountability for their policy. It is a pity that our SIN medics rall muted bootlickers even when the LPD idiot publicly advise Singaporeans not to wear mask n subsequently as infection spread, IT pushes it to WHO which retorted implying braindead leadership.

    How good can a political party if it survived only by crisis involving the safety of the citizenryincluding taking advantage of its father n brown nose to the compliant bureacrats. SIN professionals r pathetic n digusting to have to stoop to brownnose, polanpa to get to where they r. Throughout the pandemic up till now, Singaporeans have not heard a single word from the medics including the Medical Director. Are their human values of integrity, dignity n professionalism gone to the dogs?

    What is more alarming is that the FG PAP PSTLBs can’t wait for being sworn in but must be assured that they all have salary increase to the tune exceeding 10000 times more thanthey dish out to the citizens. What is ludicrous is that they do not a sk themselves should thry be charitable and donate a. Year possibly two years they canwell afford to charity but instead ask the citizenry to bear the lo ad on sustaining the charitable organizations. Really a pa ck of white coated hyenas not banana. As the Godfather s aid,even crooks have more moral. The implication is clear n loud Squeaky clean indeed. The constitution violations ( shame on the legal fraternity) the ownself xxxx ownself leading to the dare not revealed 100 millions leak from someone sicked of brownosing overcome by his thirst for thhe return of his dignity, integrity n Just being a true n not FAKE human Still hover in SIN sky. If AG has no conflict of interest as indianee bootlicked till her multimillions package said he has no issue. Let him stand up else what is said is true n POFMA should weighs onindianee.

    Next we do not need a pagan who is stirring up shits among our decades of hard n dedicated strive to achieve religious harmony. PAP is insulting n garbaged by this pagan for the word of their G1predecessors. Surely if LKY is around or return, he will the first one to be thrown off.

    What kind of FG PAP PSTLBs we have to tell publicly without knowing that they r dangerous to the nation becos of the downrright stupid. No wonder pap cannot recruit good upright professionals to their party after the G1 group get together with their common goal except for one with greeds n arrogance distorted his original values giving him the benefits of doubts. But many seniors would disagreed but admitting that he shields himself too well n now facing karma not soon after what Amo, a young teen totally destroyed said innocently that the orrible man is dead. Wonder if lky is the living one, would he do the same to the boys. Many seniors exhoed unanimously He has more brain! The rest is self spoken.

    His. Biggest mistake was. To be used publicly as the local media reported when she was chided for doing a bad job that she would tell him to FIX him. He lost his brain and again when the same matter was raised in the cupboard n a resounding slap was heard. He lost his bra in once again by covering up with a bank president job. Would he appoint his wife as AG of AGC? Ma ny s eniors once, again concurred, he is not that dump giving the very religious man sitting on top of the legal ladder. Even that he has never gotten him to preside over his defamation cases or political cases. Remember the Judge who convicted Tan WP was congratulated by TWP that he waits to hear his-appointment to the Bench. He didn’t until many years later showingthe kettle does not have all rotten fish? However without his nepotic agenda, he will definitely one of the very few political statesmen of his time. Pitiable. Is greed really that destructive n more impt than going down in history for eternity without question!

    His nepotic agenda coupled with his relentless cleaning up opposition view n worse the ownself xxxx ownself which he showed that he knew was rubbish n corrected with ncmp n nmps which were good. If only he did not nurtured bootlicking or demolished opposition, he will definitely the great statesman of the century not a banana as disdainly pushed aside by Zhou EL!
