    Can add Temasek Chairman Lim Boon Heng or not?

    He cried over PAP approving the building of IR, aka casino, not 1 but 2.

    He was formerly PAP Chairman.

  • Hi JT:

    Please do not have flashback over your husband’s resignation and lost income.

    Cheer up, think of the millions you are earning year after year.

  • Billy ma:

    The objective of the ‘Josephine wayang’ is undoubtedly similar to what lim boon heng years ago, shedding tears in exchange for a better job package.

    Is she crying because she thinks she is being unfairly critised or does she feels that she’s not paid enough to subject to the stress of the job?

    Anything the way lhl self praise his own & those of his cronies means a huge giant good performance bonus is on the way for themselves.

    So Josephine & those alike can stopped putting up the act that they didn’t want the jobs in the first place if not for their sacrifices for the country & for the people.

    These PAP ministers want to tell Singaporeans how lucky we are to have them as ministers.
    Every single one of them would be earning 5x 10x the little $millions they’re getting now.

    It’s such a great sacrifice that it break their heart that they’re not more appreciated.

    Hello PAP ministers, if you think you can make 5x 10x more $million than now, please go ahead & leave, you may at least be more usef6to the country than what you’re doing & not doing now.

    No tear will be shed for every single one.

  • Let me be constructive:

    Are you crying over your husband’s loss of income?

    Why are you not tearing when thousands and thousands of Singaporeans are being displaced by foreigners?

    Ok to be fair to you, you were only MOM Minister since May 2018.

    By the way, it took you more than 2 years to realise the plight of displaced Singaporeans! I thought you an EDB elite is a fast learner. DO you know many families are broken because of a bread winner’s loss of income and financial difficulty.

    Well, don’t worry so much, your husband I believe has lots of savings, soon some PAP cronies will give him another highly paid job or partner him on some lucrative business venture.

    Maybe you should send more time with him to prevent him from straying. You do not need much room to make baby right?

  • pap sexpert + pap kee chiu:

    we are unable to speak for others.

    each time we see pap sexpert talk or see pap keechiu talk, on videos when visiting sites such as Hardwarezone and such, we cringe.

    THESE pap folks just cannot talk clearly.

    their years of pap education at high 61% cotton sheep expense have not been good at all.

    1, pap clown talk, our blood boil.
    2, pap sexpert and pap keechiu talk, we cringe.

    Not one good speaker in parleement?

    fortunately, these speakers are good and save the whole parleement from 100% embarrassment.

    who is good?

    1, Mr Pritam
    2, Ms Sylvia
    3, all the WP parliamentarians.

    who is no good

    1, pap clow pap sexpert pap keechiu

  • Josephine Teo stop "acting".:

    Josephine Teo should stop acting. She is not an actress. Her crying is not going to cut it. It does not create jobs for Singaporeans. Instead of crying she should be cancelling the employment pass and S-pass of foreigners. They should be the ones doing the crying when they are forced to go home. For every foreigner crying there will be a Singaporean rejoicing for taking over a job held by a foreigner.

    Josephine Teo should do what she paid millions each year to do – look after Singaporean by creating jobs for them even this requires sending home foreigners.

    Josephine Teo should get her priorities right and take bold decisive action. Crying is not it.

  • HDB Ponzi Scheme continues:

    Straits Times: Demand for HDB resale flats remains strong in August: SRX

    The price of resale flats do not reflect that fact that the flats are basically depreciating asset because of the 99-year lease. The flats will indeed be worth ZERO to the “owner” (actually lease holder). HDB’s Lease Buyback Scheme (LBS) proves it.

    Resale flats are exchanging hands at inflated prices. Sellers are looking for stupid buyers willing to pay the inflated that do not take into account the remaining lease of the resale flat.

    The biggest culprit on te “Ponzi Scheme” is HDB itself by allowing valuers to value resale flats without taking into account the remaining lease and/or without reference to HDB’s own valuation of resale flats under LBS.

  • More PAP bullshit:

    Straits Times: Parliament: Education key in building fair, just and inclusive society, says Sun Xueling

    PAP MP Sun Xueling is full of crap. If education is “key” then:

    (1) Why does PAP limit (to less than half of each cohort) the number of young Singaporeans that can go to one of local universities? It is more importAnt to have more LOCAL graduates than the dubious international ranking of universities. To compete effectively in the knowledge based economy Singapore needs more LOCAL graduates even if they are a threat to PAP political dominance.

    (2) Why a places in local school given to foreigners and paid for with taxpayers’ money. The money is better spent on Singaporean, not foreigners.

    PAP should “walk its talk” and provide MORE support to local student to get into one of the local universities even if it has to kick out the foreigner studying in local schools.

    SINGAPOREANS FIRST. ALWAYS.

  • Tharman is also talking cock:

    Straits Times Parliament: Don’t assume you have ‘a monopoly over compassion’, says SM Tharman in debate with WP’s Jamus Lim

    A red herring from glib wimp Tharman. Compassion is not the issue. It is just another PAP smoke-screen.

    The REAL issue for PAP is “action” (not emotion) to protect Singaporeans. Since PAP is in control it is the ONLY party in a position to help Singaporeans keep and/or get jobs. The only thing the WP MPs can do is to show express their strong feeling for fellow Singaporeans.

    To be clear, only PAP can cancel the Employment Pass or S-Pass of foreigners to force them to go home so Singaporeans can take their job in Singapore.

    So Tharman should “get off his high horse”, stop bullshitting and do something substantial to get jobs for Singaporeans.

    Talk is cheap. PAP has to act decisively to help Singaporeans, not foreigners.

  • Edwin Tong is talking cock:

    Parliament: S’pore has become less race-conscious, but has not yet arrived at a ‘post-racial state’, says Edwin Tong

    Singapore might be less “race-conscious” but it certainly has become “more nationality-conscious” (locals vs foreigners) after foreigners with the “help” of PAP took thousands of jobs from Singaporean PMETs. foreigners have certainly “arrived” in Singapore in large numbers to take the jobs of Singaporeans.

    Edwin Tong should spare us his bullshit and say how he will help to create jobs for Singaporeans NOW.

  • PAP CLOSE DOWN:

    Hi trolly

    Does using other people’s monies consitute freeloadding? Like women who sit at home and expect husbands to pay for everything. And then they put all energies into mocking the unemployed.

    Women are laziest people becos all the energies are directed to the mouth, leaving little for the feet and hands. They talk and laugh so much – like crows. That’s why they are too lazy to do physical things.

    Case in point – Lady Macbeth. She plans a murder and uses her MOUTH to basically goad her man Macbeth to do the physical job of killing.

  • A level model answers:

    humans are more or less the same.

    those who aced A levels and subsequently became useless pap generals all know, to ace A levels is nothing but simple exam technique of mastering A level model answers.

    that is why everything pap touches, from pap temasick to pap itself, all fail miserably.

    of course not every first class HONs from Cambridge joins pap. so pap makes do with non first class like pap heng and pap sexpert.

    but pap first class HONs from Cambridge mostly no use too since all get an easy pass inside pap system, so much so they can’t even sell a bottle cap at S$1 without spending S$10 doing so.

    that is why pap folks in pap temasick pap gic all fail miserably.

    even in that money institution with mandate to oversee finance situation in pap island, can sleep so much that less than 50% of key finance jobs in pap island is held by local born sheep.

    do we care? NO.

    so why writing here in TRE? because we believe the lying pap must meet true justice before we up the lorry and meet lying pap lee kuan yew at the cul de sac and kick at his ffffing lying evil balls.
