2 Sets Of Law In This Country!

Property market never did recover in Singapore, although the govt tried hard to hype the market, gave more incentives to allow developers to en-bloc, it is still a sinking ship. As such, to make more money from rental, the number of tenants in the HD-B flat is reduced from 9 to 6.

Personally, I had been with my PRC girl friend to look at a number of rental flats a few years back, last GE. I had seen most flats stacked with beds in living room and bed room, the number of tenants were more than a dozen. Mostly these landlords are PRs or new citizens, they wanted to maximise their unit and resorted to this unhealthy method.

A few years passed since, now the greedy govt announced the number of tenants in a flat to reduce from 9 to 6, this is of course to make more money, forcing more tenants to exit the rental unit in order to meet the maximum of 6. And more tenants will be out there  to look for flats in a sagging rental market.

Recently, a girl friend told me her next door neighbour had more than 10 tenants. Needless to ask, she told me new citizen from China, not even staying at the flat but living in a new condo. The amount of noise and filth outside the unit were unbearable that she made a complaint to HD-B . I was with her during the call, I could even sense the “very reluctance” of the officer answering the complaint. It was as if that she was hinting it was better you “don’t report”.

So one week passed, HD-B came. And you knew what, HD-B strongly advised the owner to reduce the tenants to 6. How merciful!!! So in next few days, a few moved out. Weeks passed, around a month, new tenants arrived and now the unit has more than 10.

My question is why is HD-B so reluctant to handle such complaint? Why is HD-B so lenient to new citizen? Does it mean if we do the same as this new citizen, we will get the same treatment? This country is getting so strange, it seems that priorities and privileges are with foreigners. Is it because they are going to be their new core support in election? And all their misgivings are either overlooked or muted in response.

    it is a misstatement to say 2 sets of pap laws.

    it has always been 1 set of pap laws but 2 sets of pap interpretations.

    because citizens are getting wiser, pap came out the mother of all laws. contempt of court. if court decision seems ridiculous, cannot do much since anything can be construed as contempt of court.

    years ago when Mr Jeyaratnam made the statement the then pap appointed cj was beholden to the one who appointed him, the then pap evil lky, every citizen who has a brain knew Mr Jeyaratnam was correct in FACT. but beholdenness in an Asian context is very hard to prove, especially when the beholden and the one who caused the beholdenness had agreed to disagree with Mr Jeyaratnam.

    such a shame. in order to corner the political landscape, all manner of abuse of laws. good thing is we have the last laugh. pap evil lky when we looked at his death we laugh good. when we learn of his children feud in public we laugh better. when we hear his grandson openly run road in USA we laugh best.

    pap evil lky is a success is a myth. depending on who is talking. in our vocabulary, pap evil is a liar and an utter fail. he said he would rise from grave? he lied. he talked all manner of good for Singapore. but he left behind clown. truly WTF.

  • Rabble-rouser:

    I did mentioned in my past comments of the “Ghettoization” of the HDB estates over time as 3rd world migrants come to S’pore looking for work.
    “Ghettoization” is defined as the process of becoming a ghetto, an isolated and underprivileged urban area where the poor or the working class lived in cramped conditions. Ghetto areas tend to be filthy, unkempt & full of petty crimes. Ghetto property prices are rock bottom due to the low class image & are rarely wanted by prospective home buyers. Buyers who buy them are slumlords who stinge on maintenance, maximise the number of tenants & basically cause the deterioration of the property which will devalue the surrounding neighbours’ property values. In property conscious S’pore, “Not-in-my-Backyard” home owners would not take kindly to property values falling. Remember the Sengkang West incident where HDB residents there raised a ruckus over the Columbarium to be built on the adjoining plot. The $8 heart operation Minister KBW went over the head of the clueless MP there who had backed HDB & the winner of the Columbarium tender against his own residents. In the end, the HDB had stuffed up; made to refund the tender deposit & nullified the tender.
    The PAP are treading on the toes of NIMBY voters who would not take kindly to the Ghettoization of their HDB flats. Already, many are already pretty sore of Lawrence Wong utterance of expiry of HDB lease = zero value of flat. His remarks sent the whole HDB resale market tumbling down especially those ageing flats. The PAP are confronting their own Age of Extinction in this matter. An electorate surprise would wake those sleeping up.

    Karen, three questions for you.

    1) Are you Sinkies?
    2) If yes, did you vote for PAP?
    3) Yes again, why are you complaining?

    Opposition supporters also have two set of laws.

    1) Those voted PAP lose its right to complain.
    2) Only Oppo supporters can complain.

    I was about to ask her the same set of questions, but you already beat me to it.

    For me, I have always voted for Oppo, other than those times when it was walkover (i.e. nobody contesting for that ward). Going ahead, I think and hope all wards will always be contested like in 2015. If Oppo wins the next round, although I personally think its unlikely, the first thing to do should be to remove the curse of the GRC system, that was laid down by that “evil person”.

  • Scare meh:

    Remember what lsloon told u that u have to be hungrier, greedier n MORE AGGRESSIVE than the imported hungry, greedy n aggreeive foreigners to STEAL the jobs from them. So why reluctant? probably scare like hell to face the agressive tenant. Who knows they may become so aggressive to break some arms or legs if they attend to your complain. Rememv
    ber taxi driver? See the SiIN scumbag has onky guts to slap a kid outside the Court n no one interfere. The plps only have guts to bully Sinkies. They have nfi of anything except self gratification, self glorification, self protection and plp siok factor. Do u see any more policeman walking the street? u calls n u r question till they know even your great granparents and if u r not plp or plp related, u can hang up!That is the craps u r having. Kpkb no more. Vote correctly at next GE. They r scare like shit that u do that
