The worst performing PM

As I look back to the past 60 years of Pappy rule, this is question sometimes I asked myself, my friends and also those foreigners. One foreign worker came to do my house, so I popped him this question. He has been here more than 20 years. He said 20 years ago, life was better than now, so much better. He added his wife came to Singapore lived and worked three years and could not take this kind of stressful and meaningless life. Their pay could not sustain the children’s education and the stress, so they packed up and returned to India. The money he making now he had to save up but he said now everything is so expensive, he could not spend like before, everything must save for rainy days and send home. He also said Singapore wasn’t this bad 20 years ago, now it has become worst and worst.

So lets recall the few PeeM; Lao Lee, Ah Goh and Pinky. Lao Lee was the one who brought us from third world to first world. Although he was authoritarian to an extent, life was good, peace and harmony, so mostly people were leading happy life from 60s to 80s. Cost of living was low and HDB was cheap. People always remember the good old times and most importantly, he did not pay himself millions nor his team millions. Also their wives or partners were never in politics or any state enterprise. The law system was largely fair except towards oppositions or dissidents.

Ah Goh, the seat warmer was following up on his good work, and also was the one who ensure his baton to be passed to the supposedly dishonourable son. Although he did not perform too well at the poll compared to LaoLee, he was largely likeable for being gentle and friendly. He did promise Swiss Living but was unable to achieve in his two terms and Goal 2010 failed. To sum it up, he was following through on Lao Lee’s work and he was a likeable character because he was seen to be gentle and nice. Singapore was growing and things were still affordable; the following up of LaoLee’s legacy and work was still intact. And also he did not pay himself and his team millions.

Then the supposedly dishonourable son took over and  he was made the successor. LaoLee was still in control when Ah Goh was running the show, so he ensure the safe passage for his son. They paid themselves millions and aggressively import foreigners, in Ah Goh’s time they already started but not so obvious and aggressive. So now we have this 4G clowns and him declaring not stepping down. Life has become harder and harder, more and more PMETs becoming PHVs, Food Deliveries and Hawkers.

So now, the question for all of us, whether you agree or disagree, the son to me is the worst performing.

    When even his own siblings called him a d!shonourable son and said that he abused his power, it speaks volume about the present LEEder.

    He wants power for as long as possible so that he can fix the people who are against him even his own family members.

    He has [email protected] his party and all the yes-men with huge pay check that they’d help him stay in power.

    His nephew said it best when he asked for his resignation: Lxx H$$$$ [email protected]@@@ has no shame about using state resources to settle grudges against relatives. He should resign now, rather than continuing to undermine the rule of law in SG.

    Of course we know a man who has no shame will not resign on his own accord. So I plead with Heaven to let him share the same fate as Shinzo Abe (who has to resign due to health reasons), only then would he not continue to cause more suffering to sporeans and lead our country downhill.

  • YourHead:

    Your head, in which you are the body who will do the bidding of the head(if not forcibly by law), is the proverbial “rich man”.

    The rich man claimed he had obeyed and followed the law and how can such a man be faulted?

    He ruled with his wealth(nation’s reserve) and incorruptibility(in accordance with the law). He ensures wealth is “redistributed”/sustained within the economic model you subscribe to.

    Hence you protect and enhance the rich;  you get their crumbs(jobs or when you work for them or beholden to them as your masters or employers)

    And you subscribed to the above everytime or at least every five years.

    So how can he, the d**honourable son and your lord or head, be faulted?

    YOU wanted wealth or prosperity,  he(past and present chiefs, had delivered.

    “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone(your head) to gain the whole world(multilateral prosperity), yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what THEY HAVE DONE.”

    What have YOU done?

  • His dad start downward spiral:

    We are obliged to correct you here dear Fei You. It was PAP chairman and vice chairman Dr. Toh Chin Chye and Dr. Goh Keng Swee (& their stalwarts) who helmed and designed all the major institutions in the 60s, 70s and 80s from the JTC, MAS, HDB, MINDEF, NUH, NUS, MOH, PSA, CAAS, right on to the ISEAS, EDB, NCS, SSO, Mandai Zoo, Jurong Birdpark, Sentosa…. have we left anything out.

    Of course LKY being PM heavily depended on his pioneer DPMs (Toh,Goh, & Rajaratnam) 1959 to 1985 to build and run this Republic until GCT took over…. seatwarming for the Emperor-to-be in LKY’s envisioned Singapore Incorporated ruled by CEO politicians whose allegiance is purchased by humongous rewards – both declared parliament salaries and secret GLC remunerations.
    PAP had been transformed into the elitist Perverted Avaricious Party sucking the life out of common sheeples

    Reported on Straits Times :Quote -”SINGAPORE – Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is seeking damages in the region of $150,000 from blogger Leong Sze Hian over a libellous article he shared on Facebook, with the Prime Minister’s lawyer arguing on Monday (Nov 30) that Mr Leong had not only made “stunning allegations”, but had cynically politicised the case and recast PM Lee’s effort to vindicate himself as victimisation.

    But Mr Leong’s lawyer said his client was singled out as he was a prominent critic of the Government, adding that PM Lee had used the “full weight of the government machinery” to come down on Mr Leong in an act of abuse.

    He insisted that PM Lee did not suffer any damage to his reputation, and deserved at most only derisory damages of $1 per person who saw the post.

    The two lawyers were making their closing submissions before High Court Judge Aedit Abdullah in the defamation suit against Mr Leong.

    On Nov 7, 2018, Mr Leong had shared an article on Facebook titled “Lee Hsien Loong becomes 1MDB’s key investigation target”, which said PM Lee was “corrupted” and had signed deals with his former Malaysian counterpart Najib Razak that were unfavourable to Malaysia “in exchange for Singapore banks’ assistance in money-laundering 1MDB’s billions”.

    Senior Counsel Davinder Singh, representing PM Lee, said it was hard to think of any other allegation more serious than alleging that PM Lee was part of a global scam.

    He noted that blogger Roy Ngerng was ordered to pay $150,000 to PM Lee over a blog post alleging misappropriation of Central Provident Fund monies in 2015, adding that Mr Leong’s allegations were more serious.

    However, Mr Lim Tean, representing Mr Leong, said PM Lee had not gone after The Coverage website, which was the source of the article, and anyone else who had also shared it, adding that PM Lee had sued to silence Mr Leong ahead of the general election.

    He said that if PM Lee were to be awarded damages, “a dollar is not out of the question”.

    Based on the testimony of an expert who estimated that at least 200 to 400 people would have seen the article, it would mean $400 at most, the lawyer said.

    Responding, Mr Singh said that Mr Lim’s numbers reflect Mr Leong’s “determination to humiliate (PM Lee) for doing no more than coming to court to exercise his legal rights and vindicate his reputation”.

    He added that Mr Leong had also shown malice by using all avenues to recast the issue as victimisation, and using the court as a platform to not just attack PM Lee, but also politicise the case by accusing the Prime Minister of doing so instead.

    Response : Well LHL is only seeking $150,000 damages from Leong Sze Hian ,so how can the author be wrong that LHL is the worst performing PM ?

    The late Mr Lee’s reputation was worth about $400k, so give it some discount, I would say 20% of LKY’s worth, maybe $100k.

    But then Davinder Chambers may throw in a legal bill of $1 million since got 5 sibei tokong lawyers, each lawyer $200k legal fees.

    You say possible bo?

  • Realistically:

    The writer, like most sinkies, failed or otherwise refuse to face up the the reality that the slide towards being SINKaPOOR started from the latter years of LKYr PMship, after he got rid of the old guard team of Goh Keng Swee, E W Barker, Lim Kim San, Toh Chin Chye ……….and gradually inserted the emperor without clothes to become the 3rd PM……….his incompetence had been apparent since he became Minister at MTI……..with then Finance Minister Dr Richard Hu complaining in PARLIAMENT the the then anointed emperor without clothes going up to the Ministry of Finance to take away file material WITHOUT Dr Hu’s knowledge, let alone permission. I think that way around 1986.

    His dad is unlike him, he wont say such thing…. he knows he is the king and everyone has to submit to his bidding.

    Even old man told in his emails that clown is the decision maker for that demolition or no demolition.

    The point here is we have a clown lying through his teeth. And in Singapore, I believe majority know he is the king, all the dogs will just bark for him.

    US General Electric ( GE ) was once a “Gold standard” in its era.

    It has its own University to groom the managers.
    The top leaders were rotated in various business units.

    The Elite heads were frequently poached for senior leadership in other organization.

    Fast forward to 2019, GE is at the bottom of the heap.

    What many have learned – there is no “sure thing”.

    LKY had good qualities but he also had a glaring weakness – his audicity.

    LKY Interview with William Safire.

    About nepotism:
    “Would your son be deputy prime minister if he were not your son?”
    He snaps: “If he were not my son, he would be the prime minister.
    He came up faster than any of the others . . .”

    Response :You ask me possible bo ? Well, possible . So even if LHL win a $100,000-$150,000 awarded by the court payable by Leong Sze Hian,LHL may still be making a personal losing business by needing to pay a possible $1,000,000 to his few lawyers unless he charge it to defamation to his official PM position and that means payable to his lawyers by public fundings. And will there be any evil b***t women wing using donation money to help Leong Sze Hian pay off his share ,who knows ? Don’t tell me Davider Chambers fees of $1,000,000 is also charge payable by Leong Sze Hian ? If like that Leong Sze Hian better sell away his private property to pay up .

  • Who say?:

    Loong is so clever that by urging all employers to reduce the pay of their employees rather thamnto retrench them, ie if the company is planning to retrench their 50% of their employers, they can keep them by slasing their salary by half thereby helf their labor cost for the same amt of work. Then like the ministers n their erotically favourite bootlicking, brownosing career bureaucrats paid themselves more by $20,000 more for PM n decreasing slowly for other ministers depending on the degree of siokness of their bootlicking, brownnosing, polaning loony n hairy gorr. By the Camb ed statistician, the employees reduction would be less than the loong hairy gorr bumper increase n the big n little bootlicking brownnosing polaning compliant bureaucrats (as alerted by hy n wl) increase should be lless or balanced the increase of the peanuts, which is peanut compairing innnumber of these bs but elephant dungs in term of dols so ST the top bnb plp of ould report no change or even increase in the medien payhence ST report ers need not submit their report for vetting so ST reported a drop of the medien pay in 16 years. It must be old funk or karma has it the camb ed statistician cannot calculate n must be now cursing his old man n woman for giving him such a shitty brain that he cannot calculate properly else he would be getting $45000 more a month. Gorr must be cursing him as stupid n not like his old man under her paws n still can manuplates to get her $250000 bonus n a rough bashing of little camb yeo boasting of his 250 chemical analysis publications to his co nus plp of the dead lao lee!

    there is one lau gog that we missed – goh keng swee and then there is toh chin chye.

    goh ks build the economy.

    toh cc wanted a more equitable sg.

    but when both are not around, lky was behind the s/e passes that destroyed many sgs. goh ks would never allow this.

    and toh cc would have protested the millions in pay.

    the rot has started, when lky was around with his greedy gdp growth at all costs. and goh kok dong asset enhancement caused hdb to shoot up and impirting cheaperest fts depressed wages.

    giving pr and nrics to so many 3rd world people with dubious papers and fake CVs further erode the sg core.

    sgs have themselves to blame for being so selfish.

    now when lhl took over, he expanded the influx, which caused hdb prices n costs to go up but wages to fall.

    what we have now is a sg nightmare with costs of lving so high that sg is the world’s most expensive contry.

    now, lunch is at least $3.50 unless you go to cheaper hawker centres.

    housing, cars, healthcare and education is v unaffordable.

    pay has gone up but less than prices of goods and services and housing.

    is sg a good place to live?

    yes, if you have money.
