The fact that we are even talking about a Singaporean core shows that our leaders have failed Singaporeans

Have you heard of the Malaysian core? What about the Indonesian core? Or the Vietnamese core? There simply isn’t any talk of such a thing because it is a given, a birthright that needs no debate and discussion.

Only in this country do we keep talking about protecting a Singaporean core, even worse about restoring a lost Singaporean core.

Singapore was built on the backs of our forefathers. We grew up reciting the pledge with clenched fist. Our sons dutifully made it through National Service.

Yet we have become natural-born citizens who have to be assured that Singaporeans come first, that the long-neglected Singaporean core will be made good and whole once again.

In his parliamentary speech yesterday, West Coast GRC Member of Parliament Ang Wei Neng called for the setting-up of a National Human Resource Committee to nurture a Singaporean core of talent.

He recounted his experience at Changi Business Park before the COVID-19 outbreak, when for the first time he felt “like a foreigner in my own country”. He went on to question why there are so many Employment Pass, E-Pass and S-Pass holders in Singapore.

Also in Parliament yesterday, Minister of State for Manpower and Education Gan Siow Huang stressed that employers should view Singaporeans favourably when hiring and retain citizens over foreigners if retrenchment cannot be avoided.

For years, Singaporeans have been crying out loud but they were given 1,001 reasons why the foreign influx must continue unabated. Those who continued to complain were called racists and xenophobic.

It is only today that politicians from the People’s Action Party are saying the things the people have been saying for more than a decade.

It is only today that the ones who persisted with the vile policies start to say don’t worry, we will look after Singaporean workers first, we will have your backs no matter what.

Instead of jumping for joy at hearing that the Singaporean core will now be protected (or are they only paying lip service?), we should be asking how this travesty has been allowed to happen in the first place.

How on earth did natural-born Singaporeans get sidelined and squeezed out in our own backyard?

  • opposition dude:

    I see the PAP wayang continuing past the GE but I’m skeptical about it naturally since I have seen far too many instances of talk and talk and talk with kosong done and I’m sure you all have as well.

    Simply put, the old saying of actions speak louder than words will always ring true. After one parliament sitting a few monkeys have come out to say that companies should consider us locals first and retrench us last. Please take note of the word SHOULD because it has been used previously but as you can see, nothing was done.

    So all these donkeys blowing hot air in parliament are just wayang until we can actually see the situation improve. But knowing how PAP works before you know it they will come out with a nice headline of “Over 90% of jobs created after GE went to Singaporeans” with no breakdown of the numbers, sectors or pay.

    So I don’t honestly expect PAP to change their ways since the 3G are still in charge. So I expect a lot more talking and no action taken for the aliens situation. I fully expect the S and E pass numbers to continue increasing in the next few years and I also expect to once again hear of either some cock minister saying they have “advised” companies to have more locals or to repeat the same old “consider Singaporeans first” for jobs.

    All this is of no use if MOM isn’t actively NOT renewing passes but instead continuing to approve them by the thosands each year!

  • Foreigners help SG punch above:

    Hello Augustine,
    Foreigners help Singapore punch above its weight.
    This is hard truth. Not Fake news.
    1. Ramesh help uplift SG economy with his purchase of 1.6 millions condominium. Singaporeans cannot even smell it.
    2. 孫燕姿Stefanie Sun achieve success with the help of foreigner Taiwanese.
    3. 林俊傑 JJ Lin achieve success with the help of foreigner Taiwanese.

    Augustine, pray tell what solution you have to keep SG afloat in this pandemic time ? Talk is cheap you know, especially talk cock.

    Without foreigners, do you think SG economy will be healthy and Stefanie Sun and JJ Lin will succeed in their music careers ?

    My grandmaster LKY already said:
    “If Singapore depends on the talent they can produce out of 3 million people, it’s not going to punch above its weight,” he said.

    Hard Truth.
    1. Singaporeans is unemployable is because they are lazy, unmotivated, uncreative, uninnovative, untalented.
    2. Singaporeans always wait for solution to deliver to them on a plate.
    3. Instead of stepping forward to build connection, Singaporeans hide behind monikers and whine.
    4. All in all, Singaporeans cheat to pass exam using 10 years series Cheat Sheet.

    The cruelty of the PAP in forsaking Singaporeans is shameful and unforgivable. No other country pays their politicians millions to get foreigners to come in and steal the citizens’ jobs.Despicable!

  • Harder Truths:

    The fault lies entirely with the ballsless majority who are willing to do nothing as long as their lifestyles are not disturbed.

    If you look carefully there is no ‘Singapore identity’ in the first place, as the majority look after themselves and ignore anything else. So the term ‘Singapore core’ does not exist as it requires a ‘Singapore identity’ to be present.

    Only people with no identity are comfortable being ruled by foreigners.

  • xoxo:

    lets be frank here.
    When the older sg-PMETs got replaced,the PAP GAHMEN took it easy n even told younger sgs that it is for the younger sgs’ sake that the govt has not considered to grant aid to the older jobless sgs.

    Now,the younger sgs are facing the same jobless problems,the young are making noises?

    Older jobless sgs who lost their jobs have been surfacing this problem for a long time with no avail???

    Sg CORE in the past built the country.
    Yet the same nation-builders got sidelined mercilessly?
    Then,with ONE SINGLE STROKE,$100 BILLION is being squandered to protect jobs?

    There are so many CONTRADICTIONS!
    CANNOT USE A FEW BILLIONS TO ASSIST OLDER BATCHES OF JOBLESS sgs but can throw $100 Billion in lightning $peed!

    It is a joke SGS are getting prejudiced against in the Local JOB MARKET???

    THE FT POLICY HAS BEEN CLOWNISHLY IMPLEMENTED AND THAT IS THAT!

    A SGPOREAN CORE?

    Sure,A SGPOREAN CORE OF JOBLESS SG-GRADUATES THAT FORMS THE NEW POOR!!!

    WELL DONE,PM LEE!
    YOU SHUD BE GIVEN THE NOBEL PRIZE???

  • I'm talented:

    Stephanie and JJ had to goo to a FOREIGN country to achieve success. Becos locals want their work FOR FREE. Locals don’t buy CDs.

    Agree with you that 61% Sporeans are lazy. That’s the only reason they voted PAP. Why?

    1) They lazy, unmotivated to solve their own problems. Let govt handle.
    2) Too lazy scared to do or try anything, unless govt says OK.
    3) Too lazy to chart their own course in life. Let govt run their lives. OK to give up their rights.
    4) Cannot think. Need to be spon fed. Credit to MOE.
    5) Too lazy to venture out, take risks because they are too thin skinned and fear ridicule for trying new ideas.

    Govt live off foreigners like Ramesh. Without foreigners, corporations won’t prosper at FWs’ expense. Govt cannot earn levies, maid agencies close shop.

    GE2020 was a chance to change something in our country…but 61% blew it !
    these 61% must be the new citizens and the rich sgs who benefit from PAP governance.
    the opportunities,benefits and money just goes round n round to them and theirs i suppose.

    *1 How much had been disbursed and how much left?

    *2 How many PGs had passed on and how many are still around?

    *3 What is the breakdown of disbursements like?

    *4 Could unutilised balances be transferred to Silver Support Scheme so as to increase the cash payout to each recipient by $50 per month and the Disability Assistant Scheme raised by $100 per month?

  • FaceIt:

    The singapore core is a product of meritocracy, of man’s pride in creating a new breed(adnormal).

    It is man playing god or being god and subsequently vexed by its ramifications or the curse of frankenstein.

    That’s why when educated Singaporeans open their mouths, like in parliament, nobody understand their “education”.

    What talk you ah in parliament?(let alone asking regular people on the streets or mrts)

  • Well... what do you know?:

    (How on earth did natural-born Singaporeans get sidelined and squeezed out in our own backyard?)

    Bro., the evil seeds were sown when LKY piggy backed upon Henry Kissinger’s global corporatism during the 80s; betrayed the original natural aristocrats of PAP who actually built the institutions of this once-upon-a-time Republic.

    The old man whose premiership of PAP was bestowed by those same founding old guards decided unilaterally this island-state was to become Singapore Incorporated with his brandname stamped on it:- using citizens’ lifetime CPF savings as the capital base for his sovereign wealth funds while forgoing accounting transparency and public accountability. Subsuming total responsibility in managing public funds to elitist mandarins and caste superiors devoid of democratic checks & balances; thus have been the tasks of his 2-G 3-G phenomenals

  • Walk the Talk!:

    The truth of the matter is these Ministers have been obscenely over-paid to their level of incompetence! They are devoid of ideas and their thought process is theoretical and text-book stuff. Seriously, these “fair-weather” Ministers are struggling in today’s turbulent economic conditions. This bunch is rotten to the core!

    Stop talking about creating the Singapore core. Stop talking about walking with Singaporeans no matter how hard the situations maybe. Stop talking about priorities will always be for Singaporeans. Stop talking about creating good jobs for Singaporeans. These talks are cheap. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. So Ministers, please do not TALK THE TALK, just WALK THE TALK!
