Let’s see beyond the mainstream media’s praises of Lawrence Wong

As expected, the mainstream media (ranked 160th in the world) has started to sing praises about the incoming Prime Minister!

One article said that was seen as down to earth and friendly by his residents, and another article said that he had displayed leadership in crisis!

Don’t you find it very ironic that the mainstream media has praised him for “displaying leadership” in times of crisis?

For one, Singapore has too many people working in the gig economy and too many good jobs are going to foreigners!

What is Lawrence Wong going to do to “display his leadership qualities”? Yes, Singapore needs to remain open to talent but at the same time we cannot totally neglect our own!

Also, here is a man who is so insistent on increasing taxes in the midst of a pandemic when so many people are struggling and so many businesses are closing!

As he thought about the welfare of people, especially the working and lower classes?

I am fairly sure that any of our founding leaders will be so much better than him!

It was LKY who said that whoever govern Singapore must have that iron in him!

What iron do you see in Lawrence Fong when he led the MMTF has made so many screwed up decisions that has led to people suffering?

    Ah the infamous Prabu again, shallow and out of touch with reality.

    Can you provide evidence that “too many good jobs are going to foreigners!”

  • illiterate pap voters:

    As (sic) he thought about the welfare of people, especially the working and lower classes?

    1, it is fair to say as a minister, he hasn’t shown any.

    2, as we have always said, just because he lived in HDB and didn’t qualify for elite schools do not mean he understands the working and lower classes. He might before he joined pap. But ever since he joined pap and started to pay ownself S$m per annum on an ownself justify ownself basis, sure as sunrise he no longer knows the working and lower classes.

    3, humans are more or less the same. when they start to make S$m per annum, especially on an ownself justify ownself basis, an entitlement mindset sets in. He looks at working and lower classes as folks who do not have the iron in them.

    4, will he realize too many mouths in a small island is detrimental to local born’s quality of life? Quality of life mean a larger HDB unit, less crowding, more opportunities for a real job even at age 40, etc. We don’t think so. Because cheap labour is a drug. Very hard to wean off. Only a New Government by a group of Singaporeans untainted by the pap S$m per annum ownself pay ownself system can do it.

    5, do we really care? heck NO. we don’t have pap kind of S$m nor did we ever make S$m per annum on an ownself pay ownself basis. But with a HDB point block on rental collecting S$ and spending only in ringgits, we are quite well off. And with just this amount of S$ we no longer bother about the working and lower classes back home. So we are very certain the pap S$m per annum millionaires for 100% certainty also don’t care at all.

    Conclusion. If cotton sheep is suffering now, very good. 61% voted pap. Blame the 61%. If cotton sheep himself or herself voted pap and is suffering now, very good too. You asked for it.

    The ST has zero credibility as is.
    But with it getting taxpayers $$$ to stay alive put it into a negative worth.

    Going forward, ST will go beyond just a mouthpiece of PAP but its propaganda agency & without any need or effort to earn its keep.

    This is how PAP treats the nation $$$$ as its own.

    ST can print whatever they want lah, their wayang has long been exposed when they spectacularly failed on how they handled this pandemic. Not to mention all the other failings pre and post pandemic like Mas Selamat escaping, Singhealth’s hacking, the laughable “family relations” nonsense that even girlfriends are considered family and of course, those seedy KTVs becoming F&B places overnight.

    But what both PAP and ST can’t escape is reality. They won’t want to print the obvious too often that 2 GRCs have been lost along with 9 monkeys or that the party had a low 60% vote share. When this good for nothing party gets something like 52% of the votes and below I guess it’s when they won’t even want to mention the FACT.

    So Lawrence, we are watching to see just how miserable of a PM you will be! We know you will be making plenty of mistakes but we will see exactly which will be your biggest ones!

    My family and I are now experiencing actual reality. When I was retrenched as a PMET at age 50 years old and replaced by a foreigner, it had been very difficult for me to get another job. Until now I end up as a PHV driver.

    My two children (one with NTU degree and the other a Poly Engineering Diploma) have not been able to get employed for the past two years.

    All TEMPORARY Fake Wayang, to entertain and DISTRACT Sinkies, so they don’t ask questions: Such as WHO is still pulling the Puppet strings behind a thick curtain?? LOL.

    They can just choose an Orangutan from our Zoo as the next PM-elect and do YOU think it will make ANY Difference to YOU & YOUR family’s lives?? LOL.

    The KEY is that CancerLEE must go and be totally REMOVED from ALL centers of power (like cutting out CANCER from the body politic. LOL), then and only then, Sinkieporelang can have a breath of fresh air to start anew. Otherwise, ALL this is just TCS (Talk Cork Sinkie shows) to entertain & distract Sinkies, until they get a chance to “introduce the next Li”, yes/no? LOL.

    It is like the Mafia gangsters, The FATHER has too many DIRTY SECRETS, so only by passing the baton to the Son, then the dirty secrets will NOT be exposed to the Public, yes? LOL.

    If you want to have the DIRTY SECRETS see the light of day, then YOU have to VTO. Otherwise, no need to talk so much lah… Sinkies can just go back to sleep zzzz, and dream of winning Toto to get rich, ok? LOL.

    All my friends could easily get job or change new job because all of them have professional degree with skill in coding financial and investment product.

  • Only IT Qualification ?:

    @Singaporeans Are Free Riders

    For your information I have worked for an American Multinational IT company for 35 years proposing and selling IT solutions (hardware and software). May now I am old at 50 years old.

    My son has got a Polytechnic Diploma in Mechanical Engineering and the other son got a NTU honour degree in Chemistry and still got problems to get a job. Maybe what you are saying is that only IT degree can get a job especially knowledge of Coding.

    Then why are our 5 Universities not stopping non IT degree and instead offer only all IT degrees ? Even Singaporeans with IT degrees have problems to compete with the lower salary IT graduates from India. Singaporeans cannot accept the low salary because the cost of living is very high and they find difficulty to survive.

    This is a serious problem for all Singaporeans now and in the future. I know of many graduates driving PHV and delivering food because I am in the line.

    What more can you say unless you have better ideas ?

    Just to let you know there is no hope for $inkie families’ like yours. I am not being mean. As your moniker says this is the Reality. And every stupid $inkie will 100% know this kind of discrimination after they reach 40. Of course, they may also be dying of the ‘vaccine’ but that is also a self-inflected wound just like voting for FT and losing jobs is self-inflected.

    There is no cure for this. Tell your children to migrate and never come back. This is the price you pay for being born in this rotten island with uncaring selfish and stupid voters ruled by a communist Regime. Hopefully if you decide to stay or have no choice like the rest of us, you will have a quick and painless death one day. And hopefully your family will not be in debt from your expenses after you croak.

  • Vote For Lawrence ?:

    Lawrence is very young at 49 years old. I will vote for him if he can do the following -

    1) Reduce the Minister’s salary by at least 70 per cent to be on par with what the citizens are earning.

    2) Stop providing taxpayer monies to allow foreign students to study in Singapore.

    3) Stop allowing Foreign Talents to work in Singapore unless they are very highly qualified and talented.

    4) Remove Pinky and Ho Zinc completely from the political scene in Singapore.

    If he cannot do the above basics, sorry no vote.

  • No cult is like the Lord God:

    “Those who devour Usury will not stand, except as one whom the Evil One by his touch has driven to madness. That is because they say: “Trade is the same as Usury,” but God permits commerce and God has forbidden Usury. Those who after receiving directions from their Lord, desist from Usury, will be pardoned for their past; their case is for God to judge whereas those who repeat these offences will be companions of the Hellfire; and there will they abide…. O people of faith, fear God and give up what remains of your demand for Usury, if you are indeed believers (in goodness).”

    (Quran Ch 2: 275,278)

    Isn’t charging enormous interest rates for super priced HDB public housing akin to devouring usury via legal devices. What do you think 3G,4G crony-capitalists?

    “If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger and a sojourner, and he shall live with you. Take no interest from him or profit, but fear your God, that your brother may live beside you. You shall not lend him your money at interest, nor give him your food for profit. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.”

    so naturally, we need min higher pay relatively as compared to those in the surrounding region to survive ??? if the white monkey idiots can talk about cost recovery and demand high pay to serve the public for themselves , then this ‘high’ salary (the same effect) should apply for the rest of the average daft sinkies ??

    Please bear in mind that you are not selling just a hardware product but ideas, innovation, creativity etc which the potential customers cannot see immediately.

    You need to win their trust as it involves million of dollars of investment.
