Highest suicide cases in a decade

Am I surprised that our suicide numbers climbed to 452 cases last year, the highest in nearly a decade? The answer is No.

People do not eat full nothing to do then go and commit suicide for fun. Not the young, the not so young or the old.

Instead, something is wrong, seriously wrong with our country and our society under this pap government. It will be extreme cowardice, irresponsible and in total self-denial for anyone to push this sorry state to C19 lalala…

There are many reasons for people to take their own lives and they include illness, extreme loneliness, extreme hopelessness and financial desperation etc. I do accept that C19 did make their situations worse.

Despite the many big and small voluntary organisations, religious organisations and welfare organisations etc each doing their part in reaching out and helping those down and out persons in our society and I applaud them for their efforts, I ask what exactly and tangible is the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) doing as far as our soaring suicide numbers are concerned? What are those superbly well-fed pap mayors doing too? I am unsure if those MSF ministars and pap mayors are too busy at home counting their fat salaries.

At the end of the day, their performance must be measured by results. I repeat, their performance must be measured by results! Performance cannot be measured by their big official titles or their salaries or worse still, by wayang wayang here and there. Pap ministars and pap mayors must never forget that and the vast majority of our not so astute and street-smart citizens badly need to understand that too.

I have never expected zero suicide, however, a soaring suicide trend cannot be tolerated especially when pap ministers know how to pay themselves millions in salaries and the majority of pap mayors earn very fat salaries and allowances from our people for doing only part-time community work. One suicide committed that otherwise could have been saved if only we have more capable people in charge is one too many!

To my sucker mentor friend, Leong Hock Seng, what do you Mr Sucker Mentor think?

Think.

  • Where To Get Money To Buy Food:

    For the Old, Sick and Unemployed, everyday have to think how to get money to put food on the table for the family.

    Meantime the PAP Ministers, Mayors and the Elites with their million dollars salary do not have to worry at all – even if one cup of coffee cost S$ 10/=.

    Its a You Die Your Business attitude. Definitely have to vote the PAP Out in the next election.

    T write the increase in suicide cases here on Covid is lame.
    Suicide rate was oredy on the upswing and we all know why.

    Only million-$ ministers in ivory towers deny the fact.
    THEY THINK THEY HAVE DONE SUCH A GOOD JOB?

    POST-COVID,THIS PATTERN OF SUICIDES WILL CONTINUE.
    I BET MY 2 LAST 2 CENTS.

  • If the numbers of the cases are not high enough, don’t worry. The vaccination program should help push the numbers up.

    Then more FTs can be leegally imported to fill the shortfall.

    Dio bo?

  • Pope for PM:

    If we had the Pope for PM, the old folks will not have to suicide.

    “Pope Francis reappears after surgery, calls for free universal healthcare”

    The 84-year-old Pope, who had part of his colon removed in the surgery, stepped onto the balcony of his suite on the 10th floor of Rome’s Gemelli hospital to lead his weekly prayer before hundreds of cheering people below.

    He stood for about 10 minutes and made a plea for free universal healthcare.

    Pope Francis said good healthcare should be freely accessible to all.

    “In these days that I have been in hospital, I saw once more how important it is to have a good healthcare system that is accessible to all, as it exists in Italy and in other countries,” he said.

    “A health service that is free and guarantees good service accessible to all.

    “This precious good should not be lost. It must be maintained and everyone should be committed to this.”

  • loss of jobs and business clos:

    aiyoh. when country stressed up (especially with convit99 restrictions) and loss of jobs and business closures, naturally suicides (proportionately more so in absolute numbers under sinkie land 10m open-leg policy ????) will be up lar ?

    in fact, crime, offences and crazy things will likely go up also as people find it difficult to cope especially those with commitments in a high cost country ??
