Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the 4G politicians’ incompetency and insincerity

When news broke that our community infections escalated from 92 cases yesterday to 163 cases today, it is exceedingly clear that the current political “leaders” entrusted to steer Singapore out of the prevailing pandemic are truly incompetent to be entrusted with this responsibility.

The current wave of infection is not their first mistake and is probably not going to be their last unless they start adopting a more comprehensive and decisive approach in the containment of the virus.

4 Major Waves Of Outbreaks:

When the pandemic first broke in early 2020, the 4G PAP politicians in charge make their first mistake by following the “casual” approach of the Trump’s Administration, in thinking that the pandemic will blow over by itself, instead of evaluating why China did the oppose by imposing immediate lockdown.

Then came the outbreak in our foreign worker’s dormitories as Singapore allows passengers from South Asia to return while the various authorities were forced to address the many unresolved shortcomings at these dormitories, such as overcrowding, poor ventilation, poor hygiene and the lack of a robust Emergency Planning & Recovery protocol.

In their eagerness to return to “business-as-usual” while the pandemic continues to evolve and mutates into new and more deadly variants, the “uncalibrated” opening of Changi Airport to visitors from high-risk countries lead to another wave of outbreak despite endless calls by concerned Singaporeans to be safe than sorry.

Is there no expert in the MTF to be advising them that even a prostitute will know when to close their legs?

This mistake allows more deadly variants, like the Delta B1.617.2 variant, to enter into our country and create new challenges as vaccinated individuals got reinfected by these new variants.

It is natural for those who are not vaccinated to question the efficacy and safety of the current approved vaccinations, and further question as to why is our government is not providing sufficient and timely information to quell their valid concerns, factually and objectively, instead of stubbornly pushing for more to be vaccinated.

Should Singaporeans Be Concerned?

To put the 163 community cases in Singapore into regional perspective, that will extrapolate to a daily infection equivalent of more than 40,500 in China and India, more than 7,800 cases in Indonesia or more than 900 cases in Malaysia.

If we can be alarmed by such high numbers of infections in our neighbouring countries, why then aren’t we alarmed by the latest wave of infection?

The current outbreaks at Jurong Fishery Port, wet markets and hawker centre are now being attributed to the KTV cluster.

It is matter of time that the various new outbreaks at our schools and other clusters be attributed to this same cluster.

For the MTF to announced on last Friday that they will be imposing tigher measures at our hawker centres, coffeeshops and other F&B outlets 3 days later, which was yesterday, there can be no greater stupidity than this.

Think about it.

In the lapse of 3 days, and if these places are indeed at high risk of propagating the infection, then the real damage would have already been done by the virus.

Are there no military experts or generals in the MTF to advise them on the arts of war?

More Inconsistencies:

Why are there no new measures for our MRT, buses, taxis, PHVs, delivery workers etc despite a rise in community infections?

Why are there so many Inconsistencies in where and how safety measures are being implemented?

This means that our community infections can only grow exponentially in the coming days, putting more Singaporeans and frontliners at risk, vaccinated or not vaccinated.

So why don’t the MTF go for a full lockdown to decisively contain this wave of outbreaks?

Could it be that because we are 20 days away from our National Day celebration and no one in the taskforce have the courage to tell the Prime Minister that he has to scale down on his grand plan?

Many concerned Singaporeans have already been circulating images of overcrowding at hotspots during the National Day’s rehearsals but why aren’t anyone in the MTF showing concern for the participants and those crowding to watch the rehearsals?

If the National Day celebration is to proceed as planned, where only our frontline workers are invited exclusively, then who is going to keep our hospitals and other essential services functioning should they get infected or reinfected?

Or could it be that the MTF is unwilling to procure for more financial support needed to activate a lockdown?

Their silence and Inconsistencies that raised these critical questions is yet another clear indication that those shortlisted by PM Lee to succeed him as the next Prime Minister may have serious character flaws and lack the courage to do what a real leader would do in a crisis – that is to put the interests of Singaporeans first by having the courage to act decisively without fear of personal cost to their political career.

Is this why DPM Heng Swee Kiat gave up his chance of being the next Prime Minister by being brave and sincere in fighting for substantive financial supports for Singaporeans?

Is this why there has been no new financial support for Singaporeans after he step down as Finance Minister?

True or not, the incompetency of the MTF and those in the cabinets will be remembered vividly by voters at the next General Election.

Who can the PAP use then to procure the trusts of the swing voters now than Heng has stepped aside?
If there is one good thing about this pandemic, it has to be that the 4G PAP politicians in charge are exposed for their incompetency and insincerity, and have failed miserably at their first test.

The troubling part is that if those shortlisted 4G PAP politicians and the many paper-generals who are holding key portfolios can be defeated by an almost innocuous virus, then how are we going to survive as a nation should a real-deadly virus or biological event is to strike Singapore in the foreseeable future?

I guess those swing voters in the Middle Ground should start looking at the consequences of their votes in GE2020 and decide if Singapore and Singaporeans truly deserve better…

    But because they had mismanaged the covid economy through continuous senseless lockdowns and clueless leadership.

  • Very Funny:

    “Are there no military experts or generals in the MTF to advise them on the arts of war?”

    Of course they have generals to advise them. One big general says let’s trick them to advance deeply and then we will annihilate them. Another general says no worry, we are very good, one shot one hit. Another big general also says no worry, no need body armour. Their bullets are like peas. A 4th general says let’s call our soldier ambassadors. Soldiers feed shiok and the enemies get deceived.

Catch the small fishes for not wearing mask while the big fishes swim freely. Want to live with the virus but ban all dine-ins (except for wedding receptions with pre-test) and restrict social gatherings. What you get is a no-lockdown lockdown, aka CB Phase 2 (Heightened Alert)! Which DORSCON color would it be? Don’t hear much of DORSCON anymore.

  • John Richards:

    Forget Heng, He hasn’t got a leadership bone in his entire body. Reading out speeches written for you in one thing. Taking charge of the country is quite another thing.

    Have you heard of the Peter Principle? Here’s what Investopedia says:

    “The Peter Principle is an observation that the tendency in most organizational hierarchies, such as that of a corporation, is for every employee to rise in the hierarchy through promotion until they reach a level of respective incompetence. In other words, a front-office secretary who is quite good at her job may thus be promoted to executive assistant to the CEO for which she is not trained or prepared for—meaning that she would be more productive for the company (and likely herself) if she had not been promoted.

    The Peter Principle is thus based on the paradoxical idea that competent employees will continue to be promoted, but at some point will be promoted into positions for which they are incompetent, and they will then remain in those positions because of the fact that they do not demonstrate any further competence that would get them recognized for additional promotion.

    According to the Peter Principle, every position in a given hierarchy will eventually be filled by employees who are incompetent to fulfill the job duties of their respective positions.”

    What’s going on with the PAP is a classic case of the Peter Principle at work.

  • IMHO, Nathan is asking for the impossible, i.e. a full lockdown.

    For a start, the MTF is headed by non-medical political appointees who are simply clueless about the C19, to begin with. The only medical officer onboard is a half-baked so-called medical expert that is paid to ensure that party interest comes first, above everything else.

    How then can anyone expect this group of idiots to take good care of Sinkies and steer Sinkies out of the current pandemic? They have been playing the same old broken record day after day, weeks after weeks and going around the same u-turn again and again and again, Sinkies are suffering with no glimmer of hope, no?

    Besides, Sinkieland is just not equipped to go into a full lockdown because it just doesn’t have the logistic and finances to afford one. For a start, in a lockdown, you need people at various community centers to actually work and coordinate medicine and food with the suppliers, to be delivered to every estate and block. These people at the community centers are all there for what (perks and goodies), you should know better, ask them to actually work, they can meh?

    Honestly, unlike the volunteers that work round-the-clock like clockwork in China, you arrow the head honchos to order NS boys and police they also dunno what to do, because it comes from the heart, it comes from people who genuinely want to serve. The Chinese in this aspect, are very united in the face of a national pandemic, I dare say.

    When China initiated a full lockdown, they placed the interest of its residents (human lives) first, regardless of how many businesses are/will go bust and did it within hours (e.g: Wuhan). Then and only then during the lockdown that they started implementing measures to help the landlords and businesses, like asking the banks (‘nicely’) to halt installment payments, delay collection of rentals, postpone all other legal repayments (e.g: vehicle loans, utilities, etc). The LEEders in Sinkieland however, cares for its (related) businesses over the lives and well-being of its residents, so how to initiate a full lockdown?

    Then the issue of mass testing, which equates to $$$millions. You think this LEEdership is willing to spend this kind of money, if Temasick, GIC and they are not benefiting from it?

    IMO, there is no light at the end of the tunnel under this current idiotic MTF, Sinkies are starring at a then-Wuhan in the face, weeks from now. I hope I am wrong, but not likely.

    That having said, I think Nathan is better off grabbing himself a plane ticket to China, where it is the safest place on Earth currently and where its people are not racist.

    BTW, did I missed commenting on the idiots in the attached picture? Do they all have a death wish or have their brains in their arses? Bloody fools!

    JN:
    The current outbreaks at Jurong Fishery Port, wet markets and hawker centre are now being attributed to the KTV cluster.

    THE KTV, JURONG FISHERY PORT, WET MARKET & HAWKER CENTRES CLUSTERS ARE A CONSEQUENCE OF A COMPROMISED GAHMEN WHO ALLOW KTV LOUNGES TO PIVOT TO F&B BISTROS.

    INSTEAD OF CLOSING DOWN THE RISK Y OPERATION TO GIVE NO GHOST OF A CHANCE FOR KTV BUSINESS OWNERS TO DANCE WITH THE COVID VIRUS TO ENDANGER THE LARGE COMMUNITY AS THE KTV OWNERS CONTINUE TO OPERATE WITH THE SAME MODUS OPERANDI & ALLOWING THE VIRUS TO BREAKOUT AS WE SEE IT TODAY!

    WE MAY NEED ANOTHER CB TO CURB THE COMMUNITY BREAKOUT DECISIVELY!

    SHEER EGO,AND PRIDE take utmost priority over the health of the citizens by PAP GAGMT.
    WHY risk the health and lives of citizens and front line workers,in huge crowd gatherings.
    DONT FORGET COVID DELTA VARIANTS TAKE 15 SEC TO SPREAD, NOT 15 MIN TO SPREAD.
    IF DUE TO NATIONAL DAY PARADE THERE IS A HUGE OUTBREAK SPREADING.
    A LOCKDOWN IS DEFINITE, NO MORE FURTHER ENHANCED MEASURES ANYMORE…AND NO MORE REFUSING TO HELP FAMILY AND POOR PEOPLE BY IMPOSING BY MORE ENHANCED MEASURES..INSTEAD OF A LOCKDOWN.
    THIS TIME MORE DESPERATE AND EXTENSIVE RESOURCES NEEDED TO HANDLE THE SITUATIONS.
    COMMON PEOPLE,POOR PEOPLE AND BUSINESS WILL SUFFER MORE DEEP PAINS, MANY WILL HAVE TO FOLD UP EVEN GAGMT GRANT SUBSIDIES.

  • Massive Total Failure:

    https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/long-queues-at-some-supermarkets-as-people-avoid-wet-markets

    “SINGAPORE – Some supermarkets saw snaking queues on Saturday (July 24) morning, leaving shoppers frustrated at the weekend time spent waiting for groceries, and worried about being in less-than-ideally distanced crowds.

    From Bukit Panjang and Jurong in the West to Tampines in the East, shoppers had to wait at least 20 minutes before being allowed to enter FairPrice outlets and, once inside, found it difficult to navigate through the crowd, before again facing long queues to make payment.

    Singapore has entered its first weekend since reverting to tougher Covid-19 restrictions on Thursday, with many wet markets affected by the Jurong Fishery Port cluster that has grown to 740 cases.”

    THIS IS THE CONSEQUENCE OF THE HALF MEASURE P2HA IMPLEMENTED BY MTF CLOSING DOWN OF WET MARKETS, RESULTING IN THE FORMING OF LONG QUEUES AT SUPERMARKETS FROM EAST TO WEST, EXPOSING THE PEOPLE TO RISK OF COVID DELTA VARIANT INFECTION & FORMING NEW SUPERMARKETS CLUSTERS!

    THE COVID HAVE MTF TO THANK FOR THE MOVE FROM WET MARKETS TO SUPERMARKETS!
