‘Gaps’ appearing everywhere in Singapore

Nowadays when something bad happens, they use the word “gaps”, to describe where the failure is.

There seems to be a lot of “gaps” nowadays.

Like the “gaps” in the Kranji forest case.”It is clear to us that there were gaps in the way that the project was managed and supervised…” Chan Chin Sing said then.

In Jan, even the AG, Lucien Wong, used the word, when speaking about the Parti Liyani case: “[We] are working to address institutional gaps and provide greater accountability to the public…” he said.

More recently, just days ago, in this report below, NTUC’s Melvin Yong, PAP MP, says: “Once we are able to identify what the gaps are, that’s where we will have to sit together and find ways to address those gaps.”

“Gaps” is the new PR euphemism for their failures.

Are they “gaps”, or is it just incompetence?

The real “gaps”, I’d argue, is between the millions paid to them and the results. They do not tally.

That’s the real gap.

  • Of Euphemism & Sophistry:

    Of Gaps and Gaspses
    Of Laps and Lapses
    What else can be gotten?
    Sophistry and Euphemism
    Are means of Utter Escapism
    Coining terms in a cunning way
    Conning sheeples herded in highway
    Commanding them to ‘Shut up your Big Gap!’
    So no one can be blamed
    That’s the name of the game.

  • KT:

    The monkeys in white (MIW) refuse to admit their failures when bad incidents happened here. Instead of lapses, they use gaps to soften the issues. They also fond of saying: we need to do more to address the problems. Many of MIWs including the young and newly elected, also failed to say “sorry” or apologise.

  • AristoCATs - PR-master:

    “Gaps” is the new PR euphemism for their failures.
    Are they “gaps”, or is it just incompetence?
    -

    Spot on !

    Writer pointed out the difference between AristoCATS vs the Peasants.

    -
    NCMP Dennis Tan asked about SG Reserves. . .

    Some would give a non-answer – “You, no need to know. . . “
    { which is short but crude and condescending }
    -

    But AristoCATs who are book-smart and draw high-salary said -
    “Not in SG interest to reveal size of reserves. . .”
    { which in PR-speak – “sophisticated”
    but still non-answer }
    -
    More than 39% should know the Power of the Ballot Box !

  • liew mun leong must be jailed:

    we do not read the states times.

    we have stopped watching channel 8 6.30pm news.

    we click google but do not seem to see any indictment of liew mun leong who lied to pap prosecutors pap police.

    is liew mun leong getting the kaki lang treatment from pap?

    is the kaki lang treatment because pap clown wife has said liew mun leong has done a lot for Singapore including fixing low wage maid?

    liew mun leong surely is a pap gap that pap sees but pretends does NOT exist.

  • Gaps & Stop-Gap measures:

    Whenever a gap is pointed out, all that could be done is to provide a stop-gap measure. And the Gap gets bigger beyond control. What the heck is this style of governance.
    Non-proactive due to extreme complacency on the part of the overpaid bigboned toadsand fatcats. Looks like due diligence is deliberately missed out in the equation?

    AND THERE IS THE NO WORD called “silence” culture of “don’t know, don’t talk and of course, don’t ask”.

    Don’t believe me?

    What happened to your CPF withdrawal rights – shifting delayed of return knowing that a LOT WILL BE GONE TO INVOLUNTARY PERMANENT RETIREMENT in Tern Sua (where entry rights spelt out no exit return on your entry ticket”.

    And then in such mortal eventuality pass on your life-retirement savings into your nominated children a/c (if any) to be managed by the same CPF trustee aka Govt. If no children, the trustee KEEPS THE MONEY AND SILENCE.

    In other words, your life has limited mortality of duration on earth, YOUR CPF TRUSTEE’s longevity is FOREVER – your money, in effect, is SILENTLY CONVERTED INTO STOLEN OWNERSHIP by the legal instrument of PERPETUAL TRUSTEE.

    In trustee laws dating over 700 years, THERE IS NO SUCH A THING CALLED PERMANENT TRUSTEE.

    Why?

    Mortality is fixed and short.

    PERPETUAL TRUSTEE IS SILENT THEFT OF PRIVATE PROPERTY – your ghost can’t wake up from the burial plot and scream this – MATA MATA MATA (police), the hantu (devil) steal my money (CPF).

    And even if MATA MATA MATA saw it happening with his/her own eyes of how PERPETUAL TRUSTEE STEAL DEAD PEOPLE MONEY (cpf), his/her only available recourse and answer is this –

    IT IS ALL LEGAL! You idiot voted for it!!

  • Harder Truths:

    Let’s talk about an education ‘gap’.

    There are 4298 institutions of higher learning in the USA – this comes down to a university for every 77 000 of the population.

    If $G has a citizen population of 2.5 million, this means we should have a minimum of 32 such institutions. Currently we have 2 or 3. And a lot of places reserved for foreigners.

    No wonder $G is still keeping its population from getting educated and/or making the cost of getting an education impossible for locals.

  • No-Blame Culture:

    An entire area was cleared “by mistake” is more than a gap. It’s not just one or two trees that might escape attention, but acres of forest have been cut down which could take hundreds of years to replace! Can it be that everyone “fell asleep” on the job and no one bother to supervise the project? The public should call for the resignations of all those directly involved with the project.

  • uselesstkl:

    Today a private car hirer gets ” workfare”
    How did it happen when they were paid 9k every month for 9 months and still get workfare 3k ?

    Is workfare for those under paid in sectors like security,
    cleaners and landscrape workers. Then the gov must also pay them 9k for 9 months last year and 600 dollars, just like the taxi and private car hirer, to be fair.

    Most taxi and private car hirers get income from delivery of goods, part time security guard, BUT there are many private car hirers also sitting at coffee shops waiting for hire msg from their respective company. Many are divorcees, spending their 9k + 3k + 600 per month on china dolls !!!

    Is gov using tax payers money to win votes from these ppl.

    THE OTHER GAPs of PAPpypolitics manufacture is their FREQUENT CONVENIENT USE of leveraged claims and attributing these otherwise UNSUPPORTED LEVERAGED-UP claims to some unidentified “INFORMED SOURCES” (completely in that process silent of who these real, ghostly, fictitious “informed sources” were credible or dubious of qualification/expertise or plain s*ake-oil salesmen typology) are.

    Failing of this gap of “informed sources) tendered by some “walking cows” cow-dung stained media (behind which are a pack of political lying cows) will try this gimmicky mischief of reference to an unknown/unidentifiable “a panel of experts” allegedly supported exaggerated even fictitious claims in deception of naive peasants’ minds.

    These “gaps” have become more sophisticated in the digital information age.

    How?

    BY LYING of truncated misleading brevity in the opposite direction. Mask of course is not relevantly “needed” in its impossibility of such achievement given its inadequate supply or become constructively-useful of mandatory demand in the capture of its later adequate supply.

    Walking political cows & POFMA POLITICS in the know of reality of the contrary facts in the meantime kept their breathless silence!

  • Tremendous:

    The village gaps are getting bigger by the day. Gaps on true pictures. The senior chief just said the village accounted for 0.1 percent of global emissions. He didn’t say the village accounted only for 0.00076 of the entire population of villages. Senior chief not showing villagers the true picture leh.
