The PAP government must adapt to what Singaporeans want in politics

The pap government must adapt to what Singaporeans want in politics- Lee Hsien Loong.

To lhl and the pap government, I will tell you what Singaporeans want in politics.

1) Singaporeans want you and your ministers to truly understand and empathise with their hardship, anxiety and struggles and to show true political leadership and solidarity with our people especially in a time like now to voluntarily take a pay cut of at least 50% for the next 12 months.

2) Singaporeans want you to listen to your thrifty and wise old man not to splash and waste our citizens’ hard-earned savings on the frivolous Founder’s Memorial project.

3) Singaporeans want you to step-down as Prime Ministe, guide and advise the new 4G Prime Minister and allows him time to settle in and grow in his job in order to avoid any sudden takeover chaos and uncertainities. Singaporeans want you to learn from the former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who stepped down voluntarily due to his illness in order not to affect the functioning of the Japanese government.

4) Singaporeans want lesser, much lesser former senior military men who were parachuted very quickly into senior government appointments or government linked companies or organisations with almost no prior private sector experiences.

5) Singaporeans want you to honour your government’s own promise made to CPF members to return to them their CPF savings when they turned 55 years old or at the very least, give CPF members a choice to either opt-in or out of your CPF schemes and not forcefully shaft your policies and/or schemes down their throats. In short, HONOUR the pap government’s own promise and respect CPF members. It is after all their own money and not the pap government’s money!

6) Singaporeans want your government to thoroughly review and if necessary, take firm steps and put right CECA which many Singaporeans consider as being grossly disadvantageous to them, especially our own PMEs. Even DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam once said that unrestricted movements of people is both bad economics and bad politics.

7) Low income Singaporeans want you and your ministers to experience living on $1,300 a month for 6 months and demonstrate by example to them that for them to earn $1,300 monthly in today’s Singapore is a big deal, that they should be satisfied, grateful and beholden to your government and that minimum wage is unnecessary for them.

8) Singaporeans want you and your government to understand that our country under your stewardship has become the world’s most expensive country to live in and it is not funny or something to be proud of. It is suffocating for too many people and it is killing businesses.

My post is getting too long and I will stop here but trust me I have no difficulty at all continuing…

Think.

  • Boh Kia See:

    One must also recognise that the PAP is unable to change–they simply don’t know how.

    They are too entrenched in their own ideology and their own right that they think there is only one way for Singapore and that is the PAP way.
    If they work on that basis for decades, do you think they can change?

    Secondly, they consider their ideology as absolute value–cannot expand or contract or adjust to different circumstances.

    it is all right to say that thy PAP should do this or that but one need to assess their capability of doing so. In my view, it is one thing that they cannot do.

    Their values and ideology are locked in time and continue ruling will cause more and more hardship for Singapore citizens. That is why they need to be removed in toto and the next election.

  • Silver Support Payout:

    The elderly are adversely affected by the absurd, astronomically High Cost of Living, especially on food, medicines and utilities.

    The lurking 9% GST will certainly aggravate their plight of having to live hand-to-mouth, scraping to the bottom of the pot for the last beads of rice.

    The quarterly Silver Support payout should, by now, be increased by $50/month across the board. Likewise, the Disabled Assistance Scheme.

    Is this too much to ask when ministers are not even willing to take a pay(+bonus)cut for as long as the pandemic lasts?

    Luxury never crosses the mind of The Poor and the Needy.
    To them, it’s all about Needs above Wants. Nothing else.

    Will the system of governance be a Perpetual Succour or Perpetrating Blood Sucker?

    The people are as blind as the leaders who led them.

    You have created a cancerous or self indulgence society.

    Demolish the house of the Lord and resurrect it in accordance to the mandate from above.

    To save the world is to save yourself – that’s the key.

    You can’t be a peacemaker in your kind of politics with the current political setup of useless and cowardly oppositions merely disagreeable with the pompous elect.

    PAPpypolitic’s mantra have always been these -

    We do what we like, never mind what the people thinks,

    “advancing” to higher ladder of

    - we do what is convenient, never mind what the law says.

    WORDS ARE CHEAP, DELIVER THE OUTCOMES FIRST then talk!!

  • Observer:

    SGX must adapt too. See NYSE ARCA and StartEngine.com.

    SGX should make it easier for Singapore companies to list, to capitalize on economic recovery.

    If SGX allowed PRC companies to do Direct Listing and enjoy lowered compliance requirements, then SGX should allow Singapore companies to enjoy Direct Listing and reduced compliance too.

    If the money-creators decide to back a Singapore company, the price will surely outperform a leftover PRC company.

    And LKY’s grandchildren can benefit from relaxed SGX listing criteria too.

  • Simon wants our Republic back:

    This family had it handed to them on a silver platter despite their rather impressive certifications. We the forbears, know who the true builders of this remarkable metropolis were. But the republic was hijacked by one man’s realpolitik: he’d make use of your ingenuity and diligence while he fixes you up to be subjugated. His personal ambitions always justifies his means and ways. Now the Emperor Dowager rules over the elitist global conglomerates called Sinchiapor Incorporated.

  • AristoCATs - in Denial ?:

    Parti Maid case – Sham Speech at Parliament

    Is there any indication of regret
    that there was almost a grave injustice due to sloppy Police and Prosecutors work?

    -
    GE2020 – LHL at Party Conference

    Is there any indication of realization that sub-performance caused poor GE2020 results?

    -
    Or, is there obvious indication that AristoCATs,
    governing top-down,
    still maintain “Mr n Miss Know-it all” ?

    39% know the Power of the Ballot Box !

    @ PAP CLOSE DOWN

    EXACTLY, in dictatorial PAPpypolitics, the top civil servants (with few exceptions in decades like Ngiam Tong Dow), the most financially lucrative chair in public service is filled not with loyalists puppets BUT WITH COMICAL OBEDIENT MUPPETS.

    One even said publicly that it is her “right” not to answer any question in a forum, answer any question in whatever order she like or pretends the questioner is non existent of her refused response (as if a walking statue of irrelevance???)

    THE PROBLEM WITH THAT KIND OF RESPONSE IS THAT THE AUDIENCE DIDN’T ASK HER PUBLICLY IF SHE IS PAID OUT OF TAXPAYER FUNDING SOURCE OR HER BOSS FORGET HER LAST PAYCHECKS?

  • liew mun leong must be jailed:

    after 50+ years, it is pointless to talk anymore.

    let us unite. unity is strength. if everyone of us in small island help out in PSP WP events, within 4 years we shall have the pleasure of indicting pap clown and pap clown wife and their S$m gang in courts.

    don’t be stupid like 61% sheep.

    continue talking is as good as saying NATO.

    help out in PSP WP events. in any manner. if can donate, donate S$. if can spare time, spare the time.

    especially in West Coast and East Coast and Marine Parade.

    we believe pap PA is infiltrating into PSP WP land by instigating 39% to behave like sheep, aka continuing talking to pap instead of working PSP WP so that pap is defeated by 2024.

    @Simon; not need, just want him to step down and get lost. No eye see!

    Paid in million dollar needs to be guided and advised meh??

    Or like the Covid task force only can act on hindsight, looking for magic solution? That every one also can!!

  • KT:

    Do you really think the Papayas will adapt to what Sinkies want ? Their gang talk alot but do little. We want fairness in GE electioneering such as doing away with GRCs, unfair boundary changes, more election campaigning days, avoid smearing oppo members, etc, etc. Will they adapt or even listen ? Or are they deaf ?
