Don’t Treat Us as 3rd Class Citizens

Dear Health Minister and MMTF ,

I , like many of my fellow Singaporeans , have been patiently listening to whatever regulations which the government and specifically the MMTF , has rolled out since the start of the pandemic.

Many have already spoken about the frustrations and confusions arising from the repeated changes which the MMTF has made in recent months. This notwithstanding , most of us were still giving the MMTF the benefit of the doubt , at least till now.

Then came the bombshell news , released by Straits Times on the 24th October 2021 late evening , regarding the regulations relating to the upcoming Bloomberg Forum , specifically the New Economy Forum, scheduled for the 16th to 19th November 2021.

I was speechless, numb, furious, to say the least when I read the details reported by ST on what the EDB Chairman said in his note to the delegates .

The key points were :
(a) Delegates are permitted to dine in groups of 5 at the NEF venues and other restaurants in the city
(b) Delegates can come from any country regardless of travel history , once they apply for the authorised letter of entry
(c) Delegates are free to attend meetings and company visits outside the NEF

What message is EDB sending to the delegates and to the public ? More importantly , where is the transparency from MMTF ? Surely this Bloomberg event is not a last minute arrangement and the decision to organise it must have been made months ago. If EDB can authorise such activities , EDB must surely have received blessing from the MMTF months ago .

So, why was the Minister in the MMTF telling the press and all the populace that it is too risky for locals to dine in groups of 5 but permission has been granted to EDB / Bloomberg Forum to do otherwise . The Minister’s decision was conveyed to the public just last week but the EDB’s decision was naturally made months’ ago .

Where is the transparency from the MMTF that they have made one set of decisions for the foreigners which is different from what they are telling the locals currently ?

Why can delegates enter Singapore from any country regardless of travel history , as long as they apply to EDB for the letter of entry ? Why are these delegates given such preferential treatment ? Are they also not humans ? Are they also not potential carriers of the virus ?

The lack of transparency is totally unacceptable. We have given our trust and we expect that we will be treated with due respect .

Can the Health Minister and the MMTF please explain clearly to all of us , why are we , the Singaporeans, treated as if we are third class citizens (which is the impression generated by the above news by ST ) ?

 

Your fellow Singaporean
TPT

    when serving their interest, holding the NDP also no problems!

    how many cases have been linked to the NDP?
    i guess … the number is a state secret?

    Tech: If you ask me, the present outbreak practically originated from the NDP, o.e. NDP venue is ground zero, but of course those clowns at MTF would say “no evidence”.

  • Smart Nation:

    During pandemic phase, very few deaths; since endemic phase started, about 10 deaths a day. Before, there were near zero cases; now, the daily number of new cases has sky-rocketed. Vaccination did not reduce transmission (not yet), and “learning to live with the virus” only worsens it. So, where did the “experts” get it wrong? How did the virus spread so rapidly? While they turn their focus on the economy (NEF), what will be the next on managing the endemic? Two jabs every year – one every six months – and return to normal? Seems like it.

  • Harder Truths:

    I believe the end result of the jabbing is to admit to the people that only by continuing to take the jabs will (temporary) immunity be achieved by the individual, since the natural process have been supressed (perhaps permanently).

    This means the vaxxaddicts need to depend on the Regime to get their continual ‘fix’ or risk their lives. As only the Regime can guarantee ongoing supply of the boosters and what not, it is CRUCIAL the Regime stay in power at the next election.

    The vaxx has become an election carrot. A deadly election carrot. Would a vaxxed person take the risk of losing vaxx supply by not voting Regime?

    What do you think?

    Very well said, with their natural immune system damaged, these vaxadicts will have to depend on these booster shots for LIFE or else they may even die from the flu~!

    I am quite sure the incumbent will use what you say as an election pitch come next GE, anyone wanna bet?

    Things will never change. You can educate the ballsless but not give them courage. That train has left the station.

    All taxi and private-hire drivers must undergo weekly Covid-19 testing from Nov 1, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) told The Straits Times on Thursday (Oct 28).

    For practical reasons, they will be allowed to self-test using antigen rapid test (ART) kits at their convenience. Drivers are provided with the kits.

    Tech: What’s the point of testing since the plot was to “live with the virus”? Kenna jialut see loctor lor, not jialut just pretend nothing happening lor, dio bo?

    But then, I really worry for those pregnant women. With the C19 all around the island, which corner can they hide and if they kenna, then to abort or pretend nothing happenning?

  • Actually the writer is wrong about the classification. Should be the 6th class citizens. Let me explain:

    1. FamiLEE members = 1st Class
    2. FamiLEE associates/friends = 2nd Class
    3. Party members = 3rd Class
    4. Foreign talents = 4th Class
    5. Vaccinated peasants = 5th Class
    6. Unvaccinated peasants = 6th Class

  • Citizen Classes:

    In a certain place long ago and far away, the people can be classed like this:

    1st Class: Police will act against people who insult 1C citizens without them having to make any report.

    2nd Class: 2C citizens can make a report about simple non-urgent petty theft and police will issue arrest warrant on the spot.

    3rd Class: 3C citizens are safe from almost all police reports.

    4th Class: 4C citizens get a small slap on the wrist when the reports are serious and cannot be covered.

    5th Class: Obedient common folks who wear an “approval” mark on the back of the right hand.

    6th Class: Common folks without the “approval” mark.

    7th Class: 7C people makes a police report and ends up being investigated. If they report against the first 3 classes, they will be in deep deep trouble.

  • PAP:

    “We have given our trust and we expect that we will be treated with due respect.”

    You must be joking!!
    There has never been any respect !

    They hold press conferences just to wayang and to use their own SPH as a loud hailer to spread whatever they want to spread. Foreign press are “invited”… their presence a mere token of “freedom”

    They already have support from Singapore National Employers Federation, NTUC, Clan, Merchant, Hawker, Food and Beverage associations and what have you. Not a single one will step out and speak against the PAP.

    Will they still have majority in Parliament?
    Of course!!
    They may lose more seats… but they will still be in control.

    The Presidency is already secured for Ho!Ho!Ho! with that, post in the pocket… No one shall pass!

    Don’t ever lie to people who trust you, and don’t trust people who lie to you while they make use of you for their own ends. They have no qualms about sacrificing innocent people to secure their thrones at the top of the pyramid.

    The horrors..

    - Covid can be caused by the spike proteins alone. The Pfizer, Moderna vaccines are mRNA, generating billions of spikes. So, is Covid now being self-generated?

    - The above is Scientific facts from the renowned SALK Institute in USA. Covid is a blood vessel disease said SALK scientists

    - No wonder Covid cases are rising no matter what restriction measures are being adopted. A percentage of those fully vaccinated are possibly progressing to disease stage and they do not need to be infected by others.

    - The vaccinated ones are definitely infecting the non-vaccinated as spike proteins do not exist in non-vaccinated. But most non-vaccinated unless those with underlying diseases are able to resist infections as their natural immune system is still very strong.

    I am not dining in, not entering Malls as I do not wish to be infected. Just waiting to see what happens next.

    Yes, the best way to take care of yourself is to avoid all possible contact with people (covid made use of people to get to more people). Avoid malls, public transport, gathering at eateries, crowded supermarkets. And, stop believing the main stream media.
