Misleading report by Straits Times

The Straits Times Facebook post that NCMP Leong Mun Wai 梁文辉 from Progress Singapore Party “submitted the petition to Parliament on behalf of 5 Ang Mo Kio residents” is misleading, half truth and half factual.


There are 606 units affected by this batch of SERS.

361 Residents out of 606 units or 361 ÷ 606 = 59.57% of those affected supported the petition.

Realistically only 5 residents can sign on every page of the petition as it’s a requirement.

How can 361 people sign on every page of the petition?

Realistically, If 361 people signed on every page, the content of the petition will not be legible or readable beneath 361 signatures!

No wonder Straits Times need $180,000,000 a year for the next 5 years or a total of $900,000,000 across the next 5 years of Tax Payers funds to stay afloat. They can’t even make a Facebook post without spreading misinformation!

  • Harder Truths:

    China is in a debt crisis – Evergrande was the start of the collapse. Bank runs will increaseand locals are trying to get their money offshore and get out of the yuan. $inkieland properties are a very good return for them. Expect more and more mainland Chinese to pour their money into $inkieland property and industrial sector.

    What does this mean for $inkies? When foreigners invest heavily in $inkieland it cases demand-pull inflation. There are too many dollars chasing the limited number of goods. Cost of goods and services will increase as this investment craze continues. $inkies will not be able to afford basic amenities, and housing prices will go through the roof.

    The $inkiedollar will appreciate further against other regional currencies, but due to high demand-pull inflation this will be overall worse for $inkies.

    Prepare now to store some basic foodstuffs that can last for some reasonable time in case there are shortages. You never know when things can get out of hand.

    Like Sinjapoor, most China provinces made their GDP numbers via land sales, real estate duties and related economic activities. Short year lease on land ensure repeat/ recycling of customers. If that was not enough, ‘forced’ move/ reclaim of existing lands generates quick realization to preserved value of land. An elixir to Sinjapoor continued success, so far.

    Seizure of land, with or without monetary considerations (has anyone heard about $1 buying the whole back alley or a big piece of rural land back in the 70s?), is not a commercial transaction as it lacks mutual fair level position to start with for the affected parties, as the states which initial the action has the advantage of legal system at its side, if any.

    During war, land transferred without need of agreements;
    Starting 1949, China Fighting the Landlord (斗地主), seized and redistributed lands.
    Sinjapoor had our own version of ‘Fighting the landlord’ with the land acquisition act. And many other nation followed years later.
    Sinjapoor took the concept of 99 year lease Hong Kong (please read the history) and applies on to its sovereign land. Later further reduced to 30 years on industrial/agriculture land.
    China took the idea and provide 70 year lease on its ‘new’ land parcels for building skyscrapers and residential.
    Now, since around 2014 (or was it 2018? Damn… i am just individualstrying to keep up with the magic the G are creating… ) Sinjapoor already started to experiment 50 year lease land sale for residential projects.

    Some big guys here should research and write a topic on this. Lol…

    If we don’t read history, we don’t understand this: “there is never coincidence in history”

    And inflation? Is just another tool.

    You can’t afford? How about i reduce it to 50 years? How about 100g instead of 300g?

    Capitalism + Communism = Most Fun

    https://www.gov.sg/article/a-home-for-everyone-maintaining-the-quality-and-value-of-your-flat

    As I highlighted elsewhere earlier, the garmen has been trumpeting that the HDB resale prices have been on the uptick last 3-4Q to give the impression that HDB flats values are appreciating. But looking at HDB own website, the increase seems to be due disproportionally to newest flats being resold on the market – 2017 flats starting last year, and 2018 flats showing this years. Previously, I did highlight for example AMK June 2022, 7 out of 16 5-Rm resales are from the 2018 batch (aka 44%). Not withstanding why the MOP of 5-years is NOT fulfilled before allowing resale of such HDB flats, newer flats are also generally of higher values. Who make such valuations in the first place? So, it appears that the increased “value” of our HDB flats is ARTIFICAL, by allowing more new flats to be resale before the MOP requirements and by jacking up their prices (several over the 1m mark) by Ownself Pluck From Air method (likely in cahoots with the property agencies or vice versa).

    Lastly, HDB is very quiet why there can be such high proportions of new flats being resold just before the MOP period? Speculative buyers allowed into SG buying PUBLIC housing??? Sponsored by who? Or indeed more magic from the pappies?

    Any property guru out there who can enlighten us on this matter?

    My fellow Sinjapoorlang, in case you get mislead by G telling you that Canberra also got 99-year lease… and not tell you the complete story ..

    Please refer to this site:
    https://www.planning.act.gov.au/leasing-and-titles/crown-leases/leasehold

    QUOTE:

    Provided that the land is not required by either the Territory or Commonwealth, the Territory will grant a new residential lease towards the end of the 99 years, to the person holding the old residential lease, without payment (other than an administrative fee). This gives the lessee continuing security of tenure.:

    Basically, it meant auto-renewal of 99-leasehold land with an administrative fee for Canberra.

    Lies not necessary must be fake, one can still lie by omitting details.

    Can HDB auto renew 99-leasehold property with just administrative fee?
    Lol, fat hope Sinjapoorlang… like that how to make money on land value if the land is not in the hand of G?

    ST is just like its masters – throw smoke thinking Singaporeans are daft. Like Ah Hen’s reply to NCMP Leong Mun Wai on new citizens doing NS.

    Hen said “… on average 3400 new citizens males do NS, which is about HALF of all new male citizens registered each year…”. So this means there are about 6800 male new citizens each year. Yet, we are granting average 22,000 new citizens each year. Does Hen mean 22,000-6,800 = 15,200 new citizens are females each year??? Or likely a balance of male/female new citizens, then Hen cannot account for about 8400 new citizens each year (or his maths failed) – these are the pappies-sponsored Free Riders?

    Looks like no coordination between Mindef, MND, MOM and DOS/SingStat again – and Hen just shooting his mouth …. again. Bosses so shitty, no wonder media also so shitty, hor.

    Didn’t the village report to have 30000-40000 babies per year?
    6800 all new village males each year, then the village has at least 30000 – 6800 = 23200 females each year or they counted permanent village residents under live births too?
    Which of the following is true?
    Q1 the village has huge sex imbalance of the proportion 68:232 or 17:58 every year.
    Q2 the pet sons of the chiefs and henchmen don’t have to serve village service every year. If there is no sex imbalance, there should be at least 15000 local village males each year. 15000 – 6800 = 9200. The number exempted so big?
    Q3 there is a secret classification for local village males under LGBTQ+ and anyone in this group don’t have to go for village service.
    Q4 after counting permanent village residents as live births, several thousands of them went elsewhere, or back to their home villages before any obligations kick in.

    Sure Defense chief must also defend lost causes too – that’s why boss paying them million$ salary to carry balls.

    Ah Hen already showed he is a useless liar, defending lost causes. In case where our Terrex were impounded in HK, he said the vehicles “were declared correctly”, citing the VALUE of the goods during declaration. Yet he conveniently did not mentioned the DESCRIPTION of the goods, which is the most important in shipping. Subsequently trial in HK showed the shipping documents listed the Terrex as “Civilian vehicles” (ST also carried that phrase but quickly erased it the next day). This is considered a false declaration by international shipping standards, as armored, military-grade vehicles can never be considered “Civilian” in any way. He said HK/China has no right to impound the Terrex because they are “sovereign assets”; pls lah, if sovereign assets, then he had FAILED his fiduciary duty as Defense Minister to safeguard the PROPER shipment of Singapore’s assets. Ownself slap ownself indeed.

    Now didn’t another pappies minister said if someone had failed in his/her fiduciary duty to the state/citizens, then it is only right for that person to commit hara kiri. The current pap has simply no honor, hence it is not surprising for someone’s siblings to label him: “Dishonorable Son”.

    The problem with current lot of pap is that they are super arrogant. Acting like some big-F to own citizens/voters (like hijacking parliament for personal Oxley issue and calling us Free Riders) is one thing; but on the international stage like the Shangri-la dialogue, a host cannot act like a big-F. Million$ minister doesn’t know the proper protocol is to take the issue off-stage privately with the CHN delegate, meh?

    Step down?
    It will be just an illusion.

    Among the 3 institutes of power, 2 are in the the hand of those who control the Parliament. And, Sinkies gave the control of Parliament to one party.

    Singapore do not have a 2-level parliamentary system, a single parliamentary system is easily abused whereby a single party wins more than 2/3 seats.

    In japan, a change in constitution requires 2/3 votes in the Senate and follow by Referendum.

    But RAPE of Singapore Constitution happens so quickly and easily in Singapore.
    Singaporean still think they have power in their ballot papers… not if they take back power and FIX the constitution to improve it so that future politicians will be very hard to abuse it without going into the referendum.

    … but which political party will do that once they get such great power to rule in Singapore?

    Thus, Singapore’s future is in limbo… until there is civil war or an enlightened leader.

    He will step down, to rule behind the curtain.

The housing chief is a bloody idiot again after his blunder at Dover to bring down greenery and asking villagers to go elsewhere when coffeeshop prices are high. What he claimed as rare is getting more and more common and the prices have shot through the roof. How about having him pay the difference from his pocket and conclude it is still rare? Supposed to be housing for public villagers instead of millionaires who can pay millions.
