‘Umbrage’ Is Typical Pappy Quality

The recent show of arrogance, talking down and condescending by the paper general who sank two ship is nothing new. If you look carefully at Cotton Chan and Paper General Gan, they talk in similar body language and tone. The typical top down, please do not question, your duty is to take order; the typical army SOP. Remember Cotton Chan was secretly recorded at some business meeting belittling the sheep with his army style talk?

If you look at the exchanges in parliament, most of them are armed with absolute arrogance and condescending style. Remembering how Slyvia Lim was cornered by a pack of wolves for her “test balloon”, those wolves also displayed the “Umbrage” quality.

Pappy loves to groom these “umbrage” quality and put them in key positions. Despite sinking one ship, he is again made captain of another. If you look at the overall, many things are sinking and quality deteriorating, all those lapses and poor quality in new BTOs. This explains the overall deterioration of PAPPY standard since they embraced such quality. Mind you, we complain but 61% is happy with such. Even the recent survey, the young people felt confident with this govt. Honestly, I don’t know what to say. It is a strange phenomenon to why people would embrace such BS quality.

Singapore’s growth cannot be just restricted to massive foreign immigration, all kind of price hikes and changes to CPF policies. This country needs new blood and people with humility to steer this ship in a new direction, the old umbrage ship has shown its decline and the crews’ heads now bigger than the ship.

We have to vote in new crew to either replace these umbrage quality or to have competition so that their heads are not swelling this big. If I were you, I will go and convince 10 more people to VTO “Umbrage Team” out in 2024.

 

VTO 2024

    Many bosses also take umbrage easily. Maybe it’s the weather that makes them foul tempered and irasible.

  • Reboot:

    Many of Pinky’s and Empress Dowager’s lieutenants are showing umbrage quality, they talk arrogantly and condescendingly. The likes of Cotton Chan, Gan, Shame, LW and even Jteo over many occasions shown their true fangs, especially attacking public or oppositions.

    Singapore does not need such quality but 61% have voted them. We need more and more of WP’s style of humility shown with their efforts to connect to voters and residents. They are walking the ground almost weekly and sending needy food and help. The Umbrage quality from PAPPY only appears during election and most of their MPs do not even attend parliament.

    Singapore’s sinking is getting obvious, things that do not fail before are starting to fail. When things fail, they get some low ranks to take the rap. Without massive import of foreigners, Singapore’s economy is unsustainable and PAPPY cant win GE. This is why despite so much unhappiness, they still die die say we need foreigners. But if you look at it carefully, they have run out of ideas.

    PAPPY type of members are usually highly arrogant, condescending and academically outstanding. If you look at the men being groomed in key positions, all of them exhibit umbrage quality from time to time. Ng is not alone, if you look at the parliament exchanges, you can see unless you are blind. Some are smarter, the likes of Shame with tongue twisting capability, but he is not much different either.

    We Singaporean whether you are new citizens or old, you need to decide who should run this country to make this a better place. Voting the PAPPY even if you are new citizen is not going to help yourself because the ship will sink faster and you are in it!!!

  • Dr Tan Tai Wei:

    He probably expected to have backing of the powers-that-be, for emulating what he not surprisingly assumed to be their style. But then sometimes powers can turn capricious. So this time Shanmugam scolded him instead (but wasn’t he emulating Shanmugam also? Recall Shanmugam’s treatment of that historian who dared to question, at that hearing, LKY’s account of communist threats during those years?) Shanmugam was also emulating? They all tended to be some LKY or Goh Keng Swee. I remember the Director of our Institute appointed by Goh Keng Swee. The first words she said to staff was “Yes, I shall work to raise your pay, but you must work for it. Money does not grow on trees.” Then we had this young “systems engineer” made Perm Sec and Director of Education by Goh. We were discussing appointments of Heads of Division at Council Level and he was Chairman, only 30 years old or so. When agreeing to the appointments he said, quite uncalled for, “This doesn’t mean they can’t be removed.”

    How stupid of the author, asking people to vote against our govt just because of CEO Ng’s reaction. His reaction actually shows his passion and commitment to his job and to SPH, defending its editorial integrity. Do you know that most PRs and white-collar professionals in Singapore trust the Straits Times for their news, instead of the online garbage? If even international audience trusts the Straits Times, this proves it is a good source of news.

  • A SG taxpayer:

    I am concerned Temasek Holdings/government is using billions of dollars to bail out TH-controlled companies and cronies companies too.
    SIA, SembCorp, SembMarine, SPH, Capitaland, Olam, PIL to name a few.
    I wonder how much more for non listed companies.
    The TH-no-objection CEO of these companies should sharpen and focus on their core competency and business.
    The minute these companies announce they are going to do strategic reviews – to unlock shareholders values, their share prices shoot up.
    No wonder investors especially retail love to buy these companies shares knowing the government will protect these “Sg strategic” companies. Maybe some BBs whether related to TH directly or indirectly or not have a role to play.
    SPH has over the years strategic shift and diversification into properties, REITs, nursing home, student accommodation, etc, but these strategies are not yielding mush results. Now they blame the media business, did they blame Covid? How come other media companies can even be more profitable over the years? It doesn’t add up.
    Does the government pay for the advertisements in SPH newspapers? We see pages and pages of advertisements or propaganda or campaigns or educational info on Covids?
    How much more do the government and PAP cronies companies contribute to SPH media funding?
    I remember the late LKY said to the effect SIA was dispensable.
    Did he and the current PM change their mind, is it after SIA was dispatched to fly back critically ill bed ridden Mrs Lee back from the UK? I trust that the Lee family pay for the expenses.
    TH injected billion dollars worth of assets into Capitaland not long ago, and now Capitaland is going to “unlock” shareholders value. Its share price shot up about 20% upon the announcement.
    Sorry, I am cynical about the lingo unlocking shareholder value. The value comes because of good business focus, profits, not about changing business strategies every few years.
    The whole system is opaque, even X rays cannot penetrate.
    In the army, when a scholar general comes onboard, he has to prove himself by re-writing the strategies. When the next scholar comes in a few years later, new strategies. People on the ground are still “digesting” the current SOP of the preceding preceding general’s and “catching” up with the preceding general’s.

    Possibly because of his Umbrage quality, Fatty Ng Jung-Un maybe earmarked by Mai Hum and wifey Holee Jinx for future TOP political career even though he has sunk 2 ships. At the top of the PAPigs hierarchy, birds of same feathers flock together! Great examples such as Mai Hum himself who purportedly Slapped Minister DalanDulan when he was only a MOS! Holee shits. CCS aka Cotton Comes from shits, Son of a Gan. Shanmugam.

    Tech: By all means, I am all for Unbrage Ng to join the PAP and be fielded as a candidate. It would do the opposition parties some good, I reckon. lol

    @ Unbelievable

    THIS FEW STRINGS OF GARBAGE from you says clearly all.

    unbelievable: Do you know that most PRs and white-collar professionals in Singapore trust the Straits Times for their news, instead of the online garbage?

    Most PRs haven’t gone through the rite of passage, so they “trust” PAPpy Times is not surprise TO ME or online media.

    And “most professionals” read and “trust” PAPpy Times for news “instead of online garbage”?

    Why are you found HERE reading this alleged “online garbage” unless you are that CONFESSED DENOUNCED “garbage” reading online publishing in TRE and presumed other online sources of your “informing” awareness/advisory here?

    Take a humility check on your collar, if your writing here is not online garbage, your collar might be dirt dense of stains of black color stains instead of the expected “blue collar”.

    Sometimes it is hard to differentiate the dry humor of circus jester and that of carnival buskers.

  • Now peasants all degree:

    Here is a story:

    1. Last time only 0.0000001% have degree.

    And only 1/10000 of those studied in Cumbrage university.

    So, one such grad was well educated at level 100 while 99.999999999999% the rest were farmers.

    So this grad dominated as the rest cannot compete with him. Too big difference in education level.

    2. Now, fast forwarded 50 years, every peasant has a degree and thanks to the internet, info explosion let to them being as smart or even smarter than the dominating entity which finds that its no longer as easy as when the peasants were illiterate.

    Do yew get my point?

    Its a sunset industry.

  • @Dr. Tan Tai Wei:

    Well, that’s exactly the point! Goh Keng Swee and the natural aristocrats practiced unmitigated and unpretentious meritocracy that once characterised Singapore’s successful nation building. We were happy co-workers in that democratic Republic. They had no private agendas to hide.

    But what we’ve had to suffer for the last three decades is LKY’s evolved corporatized version of $ingapore that suits his extended family and friends just fine (albeit with reams of certificates). And Emperor Dowager’s military oligarchy of select generals and colonels that “can do no wrong” but laughing all the way to the bank for whom money grows on trees! And they continued to hoodwink us that our HDB pigeon holes are a perpetually appreciating assets until Lawrence Wong with his back against the wall had no choice left but to let the cat out of the bag. So much sheeple CPF gone down the hdb drain …. and HDB flat prices shot up 600% in the last 30 years while… salaries have only risen 60% in all this time!!! Why are the PAPpy baggage taking umbrage when genuine and decent citizens exercise their right to free speech and democratic discourse? Isn’t it because these incorporated self-entitlement elites can never be fired for failing? Hehehe…. they just get a new Pinky lifeline in some other ministry or GLC to rake in more million$$$…..
    There’s none so $ick as those who would insult those who are wholesome. LKY had hijacked the People’s Action Party for his dynasty.
