Trust

I ask myself why did the disclosure make by MOS Desmond Tan that the police have access to data gathered by Trace Together tokens made such big waves until Vivian Balakrishnan had to explain himself so tediously in Parliament and emergency laws have to be rushed through to clearly spell out what serious crimes are.

The answer can be summed up in one word, Trust, and in this case, the lack of it.

This is just basic human nature and common sense. If people truly trust you, they can give you a blank cheque to do as you see fit and even if mistakes are made, people will be much more forgiving but if trust is not there, people will hesitate, pick on you, check on you every step of the way and even if mistakes are genuinely made, people will not be so kind and so forgiving toward you.

This whole saga clearly exposes one very important social deficiency between our citizens and the pap government and that is this pap government is clearly suffering from widening trust deficit with its citizens.

It is helpful to spell out clearly what constitutes serious crimes as far as TT tokens usage by the police for crime investigations is concerned but that to me is just style and superficial.

As long as our citizens’ trust in their government is not restored and reinforced, going forward, different things will crop up again in different settings and in different ways and we can expect them to be more frequent as well. That cannot be a healthy thing for our society and our country.

Think.

  • PAP cannot be trusted:

    https://www.scmp.com/news/asia/australasia/article/3117159/coronavirus-brisbane-lifts-lockdown-japan-conduct-large-scale

    The South China Morning Post reported that Indonesia said the Sinovac COVID vaccine is only 65.3% effective as compared to 90+% for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. It has no choice but to use it because it has no money to buy the more expensive and effective vaccines.

    Why did Singapore buy the Chinese vaccine when it has so much money it can easily afford to buy the more effective vaccines?

    PAP injected themselves with the better vaccine and will use the “shit vaccine” from China on Singaporeans. There is also no studies done to prove that the Chinese vaccine is even safe.

    This proves AGAIN that PAP cannot be trusted. They are always self serving and only look after themselves. Fuck PAP

    It’s all in vain.

    PAP can cast in stone the list of ‘serious crimes’ now, but nothing can stopped them from keep adding to the list later.

    This present set of PAP dudes has the tendency & records of doing such stuff on the quiet.
    This is all because lhl enjoys the super majority in power which he interpret as ‘I can do all I want’.

    No accountability at all.
    Plain power play & self serving.

  • COVID 19 "destroys" PAP:

    Straits Times: Covid-19 vaccine 101: All you need to know, from what to expect to how safe it is

    What ST does not tell you is that Brazil and Indonesia said the Chinese Sinovac vaccine is only around 60% effective as compared to 90+% for the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

    PAP office holders gave themselves the Pfizer vaccine but Singaporeans need to take the risk of getting the less effective Chinese vaccine. Why? Is it because it is given free? Is PAP going “cheap” on Singaporeans again?

    The above proves AGAIN that PAP cannot be trusted. The pandemic has totally destroyed the credibility of PAP as shown by the following:

    (1) It disregarded the public health risk from the over-crowded, dirty foreign workers dorms. The rest is history.

    (2) It did not stockpile enough masks.

    (3) It first said there is no need to wear mask unless sick.

    (4) It bought the less significantly effective Chinese vaccine.

    (5) PM LHL claims Singapore has the COVID-19 vaccine because it decided to buy it early. Then why did it not just buy ALL vaccines needed in Singapore from Pfizer and/or Moderna. Money is not an constraint.

  • PAP bought wrong vaccine Why?:

    Coronavirus: Indonesia says China’s Sinovac vaccine 65.3 per cent effective, grants emergency approval – South China Morning Post

    Brazil also reported that the Chinese vaccine is only 60% effective.

    Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are 90+% effective.

    Indonesia is desperate and has no money and needs to vaccinate 100m so it has to settle for the Chinese vaccine. The situation in Singapore is different. It only needs to vaccinate around 5+m and money is not a problem with massive reserves and perennial Budget surpluses.

    PM LHL claims that Singapore bought the COVID 19 vaccine early. Now he has to explain why the Government did not buy ALL the vaccine needed in Singapore from reputable pharms like Pfizer and Moderna. Why did it buy the Chinese Sinovac vaccine? Money is not a constraint.

  • Look after yourself first:

    Straits Times: To vaccinate or not: Calculations are different if you think from the country’s perspective – Han Fook Kwang

    A stupid article. Obviously government propaganda.

    Singaporeans should ALWAYS think from their OWN perspective, not country’s.

    Note that the Chinese vaccine is only around 60% effective as compared to 90+% for Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. This was reported by Brazil and Indonesia.
    There is also no studies done (outside China) to prove its vaccine is safe.

    Always look after yourself first. Isn’t this what the PAP did when they gave themselves the more effective Pfizer vaccine? Singapore needs to take the risk on the Chinese vaccine because they are not allowed to choose the vaccine to get.

    Why did Singapore buy the less effective (and not proven safew) Chinese vaccine when it has the money to buy the more effective vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna? Did PAP decide to go “cheap” on Singaporeans because the vaccination is given free?

  • John Richards:

    I have a question. How will WE KNOW that data from TT tokens are only accessed by the police for serious crimes? What’s to stop the government from giving the police more data than the law provides for? For instance if you were to visit a prostitute, keep a mistress or if you happen to be an Opposition politician. After all the police can now seize your laptops, mobile phones and other devices for every little breach of the law.

    Bottom line, do not trust what the government says. Judge them by their actions.

    Do you think passing a Bill is going to regain the trust of the people? Applying small Band-Aid plaster to a serious injury (e.g. a stab wound) is not going to work. The TT is just one among many other things that have contributed to a growing distrust in the PAP. A wounded trust is far more difficult to heal than a physical injury.

    You constitute serious crime. As far as the PAP is concerned. And the TT is the latest PAP spy toy used to fix people like you.No point now slamming the PAP one day and sucking up to them the next day. Didn’t you said you got nothing to hide and nothing to fear as far as contact tracing is concerned. As far as the PAP is concerned you are their eternal enemy though an unworthy one who only barks at the moon. Just watch your clumsy steps when you play the political game burning of burning the candles at both ends. Are you here writing for money? Or writing out of political convictions. My advice is write here on Mon, Wed, and Fri and the ST on alternate weekdays. Tailored your views accordingly to the dictates of the one paying you.

    Reported on Stomp :Quote -”
    Nadine Chuamail
    Posted on 12 January 2021….

    This story was submitted via Web contribution form.

    Stomper P was enraged when she saw that her Pomeranian, which costs $4,000, was ‘shaved botak to the skin’ by a groomer from The Precious Pets, adding that she did not ask for her puppy to be shaved.

    However, the groomer and the boss of the mobile grooming company refuted her claims and said that her husband had specifically instructed for the puppy’s hair to be shaved short.

    It all started when P arranged a grooming session for her puppy, Dede, at her house on Saturday (Jan 9).

    P told Stomp that she requested for the groomer, J, to groom Dede’s fur ‘like a Shiba Inu’.

    “My husband and I showed J two pictures of how Dede looked like after her previous grooming sessions. J saw our own grooming equipment (scissors, comb, shaver) and asked about the shaver,” P said.

    “I told her that the previous groomer only used scissors to cut Dede’s fur and didn’t use a shaver. We didn’t even charge the shaver battery as it was not in use.

    “My husband and I subsequently left Dede with J in the room so that she could do her job comfortably. But when we returned, we saw that she shaved all of Dede’s fur, to our horror.

    “Her outer and inner coat were all gone. All gone!”

    P added that her husband refused to pay the grooming fee of $100 and asked J to get her boss to call the couple.

    “The boss did not call us. Instead he just messaged us on WhatsApp asking for payment and saying that the groomer was merely following instructions,” P said.

    “But we did not instruct her to shave Dede’s outer and inner coat! In fact, we told her that the previous groomer only used the scissors to cut the fur.”

    P explained that they engaged The Precious Pets to groom Dede as they saw that the online reviews were good.

    “But look at our Pomeranian now. Pictures speak a thousand words! My puppy is shivering all the time as it has no more fur left. It’s in shock and refusing to play. It was actually sitting in one corner behind the door that whole day after the grooming.”

    However, the groomer, J, refuted P’s claims and explained in a Facebook post that she did a mandatory pre-grooming consultation with P’s husband to clarify how short he wanted Dede’s fur to be.

    According to the Facebook post, the conversation went a little like this:

    J: “How short should I cut Dede’s fur?”

    P’s husband: “Short.”

    J: “How short? Botak?”

    P’s husband: “Not so short.”

    J wrote that as she was setting up the table with her professional grooming tools, P’s husband abruptly said: “Don’t use your tools. Use ours.”

    “Their tools were a portable home shaver, and three pairs of grooming scissors,” J wrote in her post….”Unquote .

    Response : One puppy cost $4000.Government earn GST =7% of $4000 =$280 super profit.One puppy botak haircut =$100 ? Not to forget those super expensive puppy injection costs easily over $100 or few hundreds ? Pui!Pui!Pui!

    The “privileged class” will always get the first bite of the best while the rest are left with the lesser quality, or none. What is all this bragging about letting the people have the vaccines first so that they will not appear to be selfish by cutting the line? Really? Won’t be surprised if those in the higher echelon of govt gets the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, while the general public are given the Sinovac.

    $G citizens are disposable and expendable. Plus we are guinea pigs. Cheapest ‘vaccine’ for us. Like everything else cheapo, may work, may not work or may kill you. This information will be sold to the drug manufacturers to develop a real vaccine in the future or maybe they just give up.

    This is also not true – these vaccines are hyped-up by the MSM. They have bad side effects. People have died from them as well. I do not believe the regime will use any vaccine out today, not unless I see it with my own eyes and also certified by external third party.

    Pinky really taking vaccine? People on serious medication, drugs and health conditions have been told not to take this vaccine. He is on cancer medicine and who knows what else. Really he is so brave? I need proof and not just Shit Times bedtime story.

  • Another Interesting story:

    To show the peasants that a drug is safe, one mighty prince swallows the pill on primetime TV.
    This pill is Olderna but what is not highlighted, is that it uses mRNA technology, will never develop the sickness because it uses fragments to trick the body into defending itself.

    Unknowing to the public, there is also another look-alike pill call sickovac, sold cheaply by a good mate of the prince. Huge profits could be made.
    The prince intends to allow the peasants to buy them, befitting of their status.
    But this pill is made from “dead” germs, supposedly inactivated.
    This is very old technology, cheaper to make perhaps, but no one could guarantee that no live germs are still around during the manufacturing.
    So far no data have been released.

    This sickovac pill is no lame duck. Interestingly this good mate has never successfully created a pill previously, yet this time round, it is the first to be made in the world, tested in great motherland, first on army conscripts, then forcefully on peasants, the result they claimed was 100% in trial. Perhaps realizing it was too good to be true, they now waiting for others to release the data so a more realistic number could be concocted.

    The moral of the story is to take what the prince actually takes.
