Remember the broken promises of the PAPRemember the broken promises of the PAP Our CPF is now a national treasure. They shifted the goal post many times to withhold our hard earned savings.

PAP will lose more GRCs - time for changePAP will lose more GRCs - time for change Hello all, now its finally the time for us to decide what kind of government we want soon.

With the excellent performance by Workers Party (WP) in...

Online Hate Spoils Singapore's GE2020Online Hate Spoils Singapore's GE2020 While online campaigning can reach different audience segments, hate speech makes Singapore’s democracy space online unhealthy.

I agree with Andrew Loh that it can reasonably be inferred from the ST article below that DPM Heng Swee Keat at his talk on March 2019 was at least open and sympathetic to an eventual 10 million population in Singapore. As I wrote, this is not only poor economics, but also harmful for real wage growth, wealth and income...

No Blank Cheque?No Blank Cheque? The PAP has said that the NCMP scheme will ensure that they don't have the blank cheque that Jamus Lim talked about. Hmmm...let's consider the facts and have some fun with maths in doing it. There are now a maximum of 12 NCMPs under the NCMP scheme. There will be 93 fully elected seats in the next Parliament. So in...

No to a 10 million populationNo to a 10 million population The SDP launched our GE campaign with its slogan of 4 Yeses and 1 No. Within Day 1 of our campaign, we have already achieved victory on our call for the "no" to a 10-million population.

品格与勇气

品格与勇气

这个大选年,新加坡涌现了许多可靠和能干的在野党选人。这群候选人不但有爱心,而且也很真实。他们拥有高尚的品格与资历。更重要的是,他们已全力以赴准备为新加坡国人,无畏地表达他们的需求。 相对于成为人民行动党(PAP)的候选人,成为反对党候选人需要品格和勇气,后者体现的是为国家牺牲的意愿。反对党候选人经常成为不公平对待、人格抹黑的受害者,而且也必须面对亲朋戚友的打击。然而,这些候选人选择站出来,为全民追求公正与平等。他们选择为人民发声,因为他们关心我们国家的未来。 与他们相反的,正正是苍白无色的PAP竞选人。他们当中,许多把从政视为职业生涯规划。他们有巨大的竞选机器为后盾,并有团队帮忙粉饰形象,还可以利用部长的声望空降至国会。 我们真的要一个由新加坡武装部队(SAF)或公务员或政府机构高官组成的国会阵容吗?对他们而言,国会只是谋取更高官职的垫脚石。纸上文凭和多年来的塑造粉饰是否造就了更优秀或更强大的领袖?PAP系统是否有助加强4G领袖的表现?我们是否还要继续拥护PAP的“天生贵族”机制? PAP国会议员的政途都一帆风顺,有者获得进入内阁、有者获得非常高薪的政治职位,而另一些则获颁董事职位及各种其它职位。 他们不会在国会上针对重要的课题发出质疑的声音。有党鞭在背后推动,加上他们对党也有义务,所以他们根据党的指示投票也是意料中事。对于他们而言,忠心换来的是各种回报,参政是有一项有规划的职业生涯,而不是为民服务或为国牺牲。 他们的从政路线,没有一个像陈清木医生,陈医生一直都独立自主,是少有发表有主见言论的国会议员。反观PAP,其中比较中立的国会议员,也可以被视为党集体思考的一份子。 反对党国会议员会质疑一些不受欢迎的政策。他们会反对PAP有意提高消费税的行动。他们会质疑高到离谱的部长工资,以及淡马锡控股和其它机构的利益冲突。他们将继续质问压制自由发言和公开聚会权利的压迫性法令。他们会表达有思维有主见的言论并提出合理的质问,他们将保护我国避免出现滥权,协助打造透明和问责环境。“自己检查自己”(ownself...
