Stop wasting time and resources

So Lawrence Wong has launched the year long Forward Singapore exercise (FSE) to review and refresh Singapore’s social compact. Hahahaha…

I will be frank and blunt with my commentary.

To LW and his 4 G colleagues, I will say to them not to waste time and resources with whatever FSE. I want them all to never ever forget that his and his colleagues’ million dollars political salaries are paid with the people’s hard-earned money. They are not paid to wayang, to entertain and/or waste everybody’s time. In short, don’t bother.

I ask how much did the government really take in their year long Our Singapore Conversation 2012 chaired by Heng Swee Keat? There were many such official endorsed conversations in the past too.

Many, many older CPF members repeatedly told the pap government in many past conversations to honour its own promise, I stress, HONOUR ITS OWN PAP PROMISE made to them to return them their CPF savings when they turned 55 but all their pleads and cries fell on deaf ears.

What is worst is that the pap government not only brazenly renegaded on its own promise, it further abused its parliamentary majority advantage to further tighten, delay, delay and delay returning members’ CPF savings with all sorts of pretexts etc that only well-cooked suckerporeans would suck.

At the very, very least, why were they so heartless and reluctant and not give people a choice to either opt in or opt out of their CPF schemes if their schemes are so superior? I know that karma is alive.

So seriously, what is the point of having more conversations or doing more of the same things when I know it in my bones that this government is more interested in entertaining suckerporeans than sincerely and seriously listen with the intention or even willingness to change or to right any wrongs?

I ask is it too much to expect any credible government to honour its own sovereign and solemn promise on returning members’ CPF savings, no more and no less?

Next, it is very timely and fortunate that Mr Liu Thai Ker recently sounded that HDB is drifting away from its social mission of building and proving the people with truly affordable housing to being you know what la.

Today, an average 4 room HDB flat very easily cost S$400,000/ upwards. In today’s pap govern Singapore with so many people suffering depressed wages and job insecurity, just imagine how heavy young people’s housing burden will be and going forward, how much, if any, is left for them to retire on?

I would appreciate if someone can convince me that an average young Grab food delivery person today is able to comfortably save, buy and service the loan on his/her own flat and have enough left for a decent retirement.
I can very easily go on…Need I say more?

Think.

  • P Against People:

    Liu and other elites plan and make this country this way. Every place is prime land. Every tiny apartment is half a million or so. There is no place for the poor, and even the lower middle class.

    Go to other countries. They have expensive cities, and they have cheaper cities, even cheap cities, or cheap rural places outside the expensive cities. They have space for the rich and for the poor. Good apartments can be cheap, less than $200,000.

    Liu and those never plan for a livable country. They plan for a rich city, with no eggs and no chicken, and no poor people.

    These multi-million salary elites got pig brain for the poor. They praise themselves for their great work to help the poor when they distribute a few food coupons. Unbelievable!

    Policies that benefit *many n not just a few(the FEW)!
    SURE,BENEFIT WHO N HOW?
    Take the $100 Billion as a good example.
    Many sgs who are deserving n NÈEDY,were granted $600 only when estimated PER CAPITA GRANT was $23.5K?
    Many more NON-SGS received much more,so did rich n well-heeled sgs!
    *MANY* MEANS WHO?
    NOW,there are as MANY NON-SGS AS THERE ARE *PASSING-BY* GUESTS LIVING HERE.
    DO WE TREAT OUTSIDERS BETTER THAN OWN COUNTRYMEN?
    IS THAT *THE* POLICY?
    Small wonder MANY GUESTS REFUSE TO TAKE UP OFFERS OF CITIZENSHIP AS THEY OBSERVE THAT STAKE-HOLDERS ARE NOT GIVEN THEIR FAIR N JUST SHARE OF THE PIE…

    QUÈER RIGHT?

    LW better be careful as he seems to sound like HSK – talking cock when ppl can sense any insincerity. See what happened to HSK then. (As Simon rightly pointed out, HSK chaired OSC, which seemed to died after GE2015).

    LW should first answer why after GE2015 and GE2020, the pappies didn’t start a FSE, instead Ah Loong even called voters “Free Riders”? Seven years just happily collecting their million$ pay, hor. Now only when he is selected (undemocratically) to be next PM, does he have the initiative to have a FSE. Doesn’t that sounds like only when they want to gain something themselves, then they start to wayang a lot? Very sincere, hor?

  • Same old same old sh*t:

    Damn condescending speech.
    Always repeating things like that ‘no SGperson will be left behind’ blah blah blah..
    Then turn around and say we cant do w/o fws …same with their loose immigration policy.
    Ironic isnt it..when a huge majority of those “sgs” are new citizens who were brought in by planeloads under special conditions and treatment.
    Our trublus dont get such special treatment..
    Saying all the good to hear stuff im preparation for his “coronation” and ascencion to the SG throne?
    On National Day we’re gonna get another huge dose of their lies ..from his present boss…

  • Sgs have lost trust:

    Always putting the blame on sgs..
    He shd ask himself “who are the sgs these days”?
    After decades of pushing hard policies on our shoulders now suddenly asking sgs to map the future?
    With so much gov control , will it even be possible?
    Or maybe theyll choose their kakis as always…to lead the way?
    So predictable lah.

    As usual these so call conversations are loaded with slogans and motherhood statements propagated by SG’s submissive media.LW should instead make the necessary arrangements to allow immediately an additional lump sum drawdown of at least 20 percent by CPF members above 70 year old.What do you think??

    Aiyoh, this LW is another idiot that just read whatever script given to him. Use common sense, mah – if indeed they NEVER leave any SGperson behind, then why would pap keep losing votes since 2006, till now very malu at only 61%? (And that 61% includes about 8% imported voters too). 16++ years runway still not enough, hor? That’s why the 4G team doesn’t look very promising nor sincere – no need Ph.D also can see.

  • Heard but never Listened:

    Hearing and Listening are two different acts. They are a world of difference.

    Forward and Centre-Forward are two different positions. They are just for show when the team is actually leading to no goals.

    Moving forward seems to be making no difference as staying backward. It’s status quo. Moving too fast is at fall risk. Moving too slow, many left behind. Only the fittest survive. This World is ruled by Elites, living in cloud9,feet not touching the ground. They hear, they listen but never understand, much less being empathic.

    The commoners are suffering and crying in the wilderness. All their plights fall on deaf ears. TONA! (Talks Only, No Action)

    Yeah, this is a routine ritual for new takeover.

    GCT, LHL –
    they all told us –
    we listen to you,
    we are kind and gentle, etc.

    -
    When someone poked with hard question?

    LKY –
    “Anybody who decides to take me on needs to put on knuckle-dusters.
    If you think you can hurt me more than I can hurt you, try.
    There is no way you can govern a Chinese society.”

    “Everybody knows that in my bag I have a hatchet, and a very sharp one.
    You take me on, I take my hatchet, we meet in the cul-de-sac.”

    Stop wasting time and resources ?

    Yesterday I saw 8 numbers of pre school small children of probably 3-4 years old .Accompany them are three evil b**** backside women teachers -two malay and 1 chinese.When the children numbers are small like just eight only,why is there need to have excessive 3 women teachers to bring them oitside for a walk walk in Punggol? Such unnecessary usage of manpower teachers when two teachers is more than enough to handle a class of eight children bringing them outside in a no traffic environment ! In fact one woman teacher should be enough to handle eight children bringing them outside for walk walk .And I do not encourage such wasting them of extra teachers bringing children for walk walk.Like that easily one and a half hour time gone without teaching anything much to the children ! How will bright children come out from such expensive,wastage man power,teach little education system of Singapore ? Children should stay in classroom to study more and not waste time walking them around ! Once a year walk outside is ok but not every day,week,month ! And do not employ too malay to teach chinese class students ! I heard them speaking Malay to chinese students when chinese students should be learning chinese language ! Do not mixed up the language !

  • Billy ma:

    A huge disappointment but never unexpected.

    He’s just following the standard PAP script. In fact, he’s just putting up the same show that lhl had done previously.

    Am sure most heard how lhl boasted in his recent overseas trip about not having monopoly of knowledge & truth.
    Lhl has zero qualification to talk about family harmony & allowing & accepting alternate views & opinions.
    Those in the audience must be laughing silently listening to the fake speech.

    Yes, totally agree that this is another of PAP waste time waste $$$ show. And it’s not PAP footing the bills.

    Many if not most who are invited are die-hard PAP voters & PAP grassroots followers & staff of PA, NTUC, & whatnot.
    All from same family & breathe from the same nostrils.

    PAP had already decided what they want to do. It’s all written up.
    But the shows must go on, anyhow.

  • Guru:

    ” Forward Singapore” exercise is a clear sign of diversion by PAP to address the current problems facing Singaporeans. This tactic is usually PAP’s way of facing problems for which they have no solutions and has run out of ideas. Now you will find MInsters & PAP “runners” barking the same all over the Island and constituencies. Make my words from now on ist the ” Forward Singapore” slogans and not the rising cost of living.

    No need to bother to listen what the PAPies say on their wayang stage lah.
    Just watch what they DO. LOL.
    Then, as I’ve often advised, YOU do the OPPOSITE or the UNexpected from what PAPies want/expect you Sinkies to do, yes? LOL.

    IF you don’t believe me, then just continue watching your MSM TV Channel 5/8/CNA “ProPAPganda” channels and pray to to your “LEEligion” to bring you & your family along to the new LaLa Land Sinkiepore “Utopia” lor. LOL.

    Majority of SSS Sinkies will most likely continue to shout “PAPies! We Luv U!”
    Yes?/No? LOL.
    Again, if you don’t believe me, then you just wait for a few more years to see the NEXT General “eRection” results lor. LOL.
