Ushering in 2021

As we enter the new year, I wish the lives of all Singaporeans and friends are improving steadily. As we suffered throughout 2020, we have also been learning and we should have by now a better idea of how to deal with Covid-19 and the New Normal created by it.

With more knowledge, economic activities will pick up from the bottom and we will experience a technical rebound soon. We, Singaporeans are a tough people. Tough times never last but tough people do so we are down but not out. We are ready to fight another day.

But the way we choose to fight the next battle is also very important. If the Government really believes that we are in a New Normal, then it should review its policies and strategies in more depth because more of the same kind of policies is unlikely to help us breakout from the New Normal.

This is because even before the outbreak of Covid-19, our economy and society is already experiencing structural problems. With limited alternative information, most Singaporeans have relied only on the Government’s narrative to grasp the logic of situation. However, that is constantly at odds with the reality around us.

With a closer look, it is not difficult to see that our meritocratic system has changed drastically with times. The so-called foreign talent policy has exacerbated that. Now, our meritocracy is no longer a social equalizer but a social divider. There is a need to revamp the system.

I hope to actively present my ideas in Parliament on how to do that. I also look forward to your feedback and guidance so that our collective wisdom can turn the New Normal into a New Era for our country. I have no doubt we can do it.

Hope this is reason for a Happy New Year. Enjoy.

    Yes, Leong. You are spot on.
    We must have new ideas to move Singapore forward.
    And the 2 ideas from me is:
    1. DO NOT LET LGBT Hijack the country in the name of Democracy, Freedom, Human Rights …. and legalized POKE BACKSIDE and RUB P*SSY in public

    This is history. Taiwan Democratic Progressive Party President Tsai first bill she passed after being elected is Poke Backside/Rub P*ssy law.

    2. DO NOT VOTE opposition who are just pretending to be democratic but when they opposition grabbed power, they opposition became even more communist than communist.

    The real problem in SIN is the govt controlled media which has comformists rather than journalists! And CNA always report the bads of other countries and even photoshots the poor state of other countries infrastructures so that SINporeans always brainwashed to say bad about other countries which indirectly makes SIN arrogant and talk bad about other countries!

    I have reasons to say that they are conformists instead of journalists by just a handful of these articles:

    A) At the beginning of COVID-19 there were video clips circulating to prove that various ministers from the top PM etc saying that there was no need to wear masks & to the extent to mock HK for wearing masks!! Then the explosion of dorms: but recent reports never mentioned such big mistakes but instead avoided them in the reporting!

    B) When Thaksin came to SIN it was reported that PM & wife visited and had conversations with them at Mandarin hotel: the sequel of which was the acquisition of Shin Corporation and debacle investments in the end. However no report was made on the genesis.

    C) The most recent was the lapsed of HSR on 31 Dec. Prior of that date there were many reports in M’sia about the termination of the HSR in JB instead of SIN. Also there were reports which said SIN “disallowed” HSR to journey to KLIA, which from natural thinking SIN has no right of directing in another sovereign country! In this case: M’sia outsmarts SIN by terminating the HSR in JB instead of bypassing it to reach SIN. A classic case of the fable of the Tortoise & the Hare race! The compensations to be paid to SIN would outweigh the boosting & benefits of JB economy in the long term; because SINporeans who wish to go to KL or even to PRC (as the HSR has plans to reach China via Thailand etc) have to go to JB first, which in turn boost the economy there. But the govt controlled media never mention the foregoing “outsmartness” of M’sia instead just highlighted M’sia dire financial straits! If you look back on the history of M’sia; debacles like Bank Bumiputra & the recent 1MDB those hard knocks can be easily resolved by their rich natural resources like oil, rubber, palm oil etc Whereas when Temasek &/or GIC gotten such debacles (which no one knows because of secrecy) then it would be a goner! A case in point is the Hin Leong debacle; in billions of dollars!

    I can carry on the listings……plenty more…which the govt do not like us to use our brains but want to brain washed us instead!!!

    Reported on the TISG :Quote -”Former Reform Party members form new political party – Singapore United Party
    The new party is headed by former Reform Party chairman, Andy Zhu with at least 8 of the pro-tem members having former affiliations with the Reform Party

    AUTHOR

    Jewel Stolarchuk…

    A new political party led by the former chairman of Reform Party, Andy Zhu, was given the go-ahead by the Registrar of Societies (ROS) on 24 December 2020. The newly formed party is christened Singapore United Party (SUP). The registered address of the Party is at 8 Kaki Bukit Ave 4, #06-04, [email protected] Bukit, Singapore 415875.

    According to publicly available records these are the other members of SUP:

    Joyce Tan Yen Wei – Chairman
    Muhammad Ridhuan – Deputy Chairman
    Andy Zhu – Secretary-General
    Md Ali Kamal Batcha – Dy Secretary-General
    Noraini Yunus – Treasurer
    Tyeisha Syaquilla Ayub – Dy Treasurer
    Other pro-tem committee members are:

    Mohamad Affendy Abdul Rahim
    Darren Soh
    Zhang Guoqiang
    Choo Zin Chye
    Gurdev Singh
    Of the 11 pro-tem committee members in SUP, at least 8 have had former affiliations with the Reform Party. Mr Zhu, Mr Soh and Ms Noraini were part of the Reform Party team which contested in the 5-men Ang Moh Kio Group Representation Constituency in the 2020 General Election. Reform Party’s secretary-general Kenneth Jeyaretnam and its current chairman, Charles Yeo, were the others who contested in the same constituency…

    Soon after the electoral contest, the Reform Party announced that Mr Zhu and Ms Noraini, who was its Treasurer, were stepping down. Mr Zhu however contested the announcement alleging “undemocratic” means were used by the Party to oust him from Office. Mr Jeyaretnam disputed this saying, “(Mr Zhu) was removed by a unanimous vote of the CEC”.

    Source: Facebook
    SUP does not seem to have an official website or social media page. The party has also not released its party symbol. SUP’s entry into the political field means 14 opposition parties are now active and ready to contest the next general election in Singapore.

    The 14 active political parties are:

    Workers’ Party
    Singapore Democratic Party
    Progress Singapore Party
    Singapore People’s Party
    National Solidarity Party
    People’s Voice Party
    People’s Power Party
    Reform Party
    Democratic Progressive Party
    Singapore Justice Party
    Pertubuhan Kebangsaan Melayu Singapura
    Socialist Front
    Red Dot United
    Singapore United Party..”Unquote.

  • Harder Truths:

    Mr Leong

    Thank you for service to what is left of our tiny country. You may ask the questions and that is unfortunately all you can do. It will not be long until one-party rule becomes permanent, one way or another.

    Before that time comes, it would be nice to see someone raise the questions that only JBJ and CST dared to raise in their stellar years defending what was left of democracy. No one since CST in his heyday has dared to do this. Yet such men will never be forgotten no matter the outcome.

    It is not easy, because the full weight of Team Despot will fall on whoever asks the questions, plus possibly external harassment by Team Gestapo of the individual, the family, friends and colleagues.

    It may be the opposition is trying to slowly build up its numbers and supporters. Knowing the selfish $G mentality of at least 61%, it is clear to me that the island will be overrun by foreigners in a few more short years and the question of an opposition becomes moot as the regime will always win, making this a one-party communist state in fact. So if there are hard questions to be asked it should be now, before that opportunity is lost.

    If MP’s do not wish to raise such questions to avoid the expected blowback from the regime, then that is also understandable and prudent. Most MP’s understand the futility of the approach and there is nothing to win and everything to lose. However it would be nice for someone to pick up this gauntlet before it is buried in the dust of a forgotten past.

    FACEBOOKWHATSAPP
    SINGAPORE – People who opt to take the Covid-19 vaccine will receive a physical vaccination card, and will be able to check their vaccination records online, said Health Minister Gan Kim Yong on Monday (Jan 4).

    He noted that nearly 60 per cent of people indicated through surveys and other government outreach methods that they will get inoculated once a vaccine is available, while around a third said they would wait for more data before deciding.

    Mr Gan also told Parliament that people will not be able to choose which vaccine they want.

    He said the vaccination card will indicate which vaccine was administered and the appointment dates for the second vaccine dose, and will also provide brief post-vaccination advice.

    Some vaccines, such as the one developed by Pfizer-BioNTech, require two doses to be administered 21 days apart, and an additional 14 days after the second dose to reach maximum protection against the virus.

    Vaccine records will be updated in the National Immunisation Registry, the minister added.

    Mr Louis Chua (Sengkang GRC) asked if individuals will be allowed to choose which vaccine they wish to take, when more than one has been approved for use.

    Mr Gan said allowing individuals to choose will “unnecessarily complicate the already complex vaccination programme”.

    Instead, the allocation of vaccines will largely be based on the medical indications of the different vaccines and the suitability of a vaccine for different sub-groups in the population, as well as vaccine availability.

    “Anyway, in the immediate term, only the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has been approved for use,” Mr Gan said. “So there is no choice.”..”Unquote .

  • sad situation:

    Concern that many of our PMETS have stay too long in one field and too specialised in their job that when they lost their job they have difficulties to pivot to other jobs available. They tend to seek new employment in the same area which is no longer available to them.
    Time to teach our PMETs general skills that will help them to learn new skills easily and be more adaptable to changes. Skills that will help them to move even to new industries and opportunities.
    Government should do more to help them in this path of change
    It is stupid to ask them to be hawker, delivery boy and PVH etc no future.
