Half mast for Queen Elizabeth II

The late Queen Elizabeth II passed away and the pap government has announced that our state flag at all government buildings will be flown at half mask (sic) on the day of her funeral as a mark of respect.

I encourage feedback regarding this commentary in order to share, to educate and to enlighten our citizens. I thank you all in advance.

I ask if such a decision is appropriate or necessary? As an independent and sovereign nation since 1965 and for over half a century alearly, I ask if the pap government has gone over the top with such an honour?

Firstly, unlike Australia, our Head of State is our President and will forever be one of our own citizen and not a British or a foreigner. I understand and accept if Australia flies their state flag at half mask because of the late QE II’s demise but for us?

Next, although we are a former British colony and a member of the Commonwealth, still, I am not sold or convinced about the merits of flying our state flag at half mask at all our government buildings on the day of her funeral.

Our state flag represents us collectively, our independence and our sovereignty. I challenge anybody to ask any average Singaporean men or women on the street about the late QE II’s relationship with Singapore and I dare say that apart from historical reasons, the vast majority of them will struggle to come up with some truly good and most importantly, relevant answers.

Paying respect to the deceased at the personal level by the ministers, that I totally understand but flying our state flag at half mask like in this case?

I want to ask the pap government what are the criteria that must be fulfilled before a state funeral or the flying of our state flag at half mask is accorded. The flying of our state flag at half mask or according somebody a state funeral is the highest honour and respect that we as a nation can bestow on a departed person.

Even our truly elected late people’s President Ong Teng Cheong was not given a state funeral, therefore, I, as a citizen, ask what are the criteria for the flying of our state flag at half mask for a departed person or the holding of a state funeral?

Surely it cannot be at the whim and fancy or suka suka of the pap government right?

Think.

    First, was your question even necessary?

    How big deal you think flying flag at half-mast makes?

    At least i know, you won’t get it. Neither me.

    So what is the hooha? I fly USA fly every day. I have Japan flag sewed on my nah. But my grassroots need to beg me to put up flag only during national day.

    Grow up buddy. If you feel so strongly, be the gahment.

  • SINGAROAR:

    In the 14th century Singapore was already a thriving port under the Majapahit Empire. The British chose Singapore because of its strategic location and it’s naturally protected harbour. The British benefitted economically from Singapore for 146years. Many countries had to fight the British to get independence. The billions of dollars of jewels stolen by the British and now claimed to be owned by the British Royalty should be condemned and our govt. should support the claim against the British govt. and Royalty by the various stakeholders. Flying our flag at half mast nullifies the struggles of all leaders who fought against colonialism. It only shows how morally bankrupt the PAP govt.is, just like VB visiting the convicted NR in Malaysia. Agree with GMS on this article.We only need to visualise Mahatma Gandhi and his sufferings at the hands of the British.

    I think that you really need to differentiate between Patriotism and Nationalism. Patriotism is where you love your country and want the best for your country. Nationalism is where you think your country is always right and that either there is nothing wrong with your country or anything wrong with your country is the fault of some “other”.

    Tech: FYI, OT is not compulsory and certainly not “forced”, even in civil service and GLCs. There are regulations on OT and the pay is significantly higher than normal. With the exception of exceptional circumstances, i.e. natural disasters like C19 (everyone would have volunteered anyway), it is entirely up to the employee to do OT or not. In fact, China labor laws protect the employees more than those in Sinkies, for example, you CAN NOT sack a pregnant woman, they enjoy longer maternity PAID leave, they get heat pay of 300 a day (高温补贴), 养老保险, 医疗保险, CPF, etc. They are also allowed up to 2 hours of noon sleep (午休) during lunch hours, it’s the norm and practiced throughout the country, not forgetting the EXTREMELY LONG national holidays like 10-1, Lunar New Year, 端午节, 劳动节, etc etc etc. So, are Chinese workers really in a worst position than those in Sinkies?

    Tech: You never do change, do you? A secretary’s job is to not sleep with the boss, right? The law did not stipulate that she has to have sex with the boss, but if for some reason, be it coerced or whatever (as you claimed), she has to, then it is ultimately her choice. She has an option to report the matter to the authorities if she wants to and I am sure the boss will be taken to task, but if she don’t report, blame who, the law?

    By an extension of your warped argument, then you can go on to claim that most bosses are “forcing” their female staff to have sex with them 996, since there will always be some daft women willing to do so, right? Got meaning or not?

    Laws are there for a reason and are supposed to be adhered to, there will be idiots who choose to break them, then they will have to bear the consequences of their action, once the matter has come to light. Just because some are breaking the law does not mean that all are condoning these idiot’s actions.

    On flying flags at full mast or half mast – did you guys see our monkeys debating in parliament to get Singaporeans to fly the flag more often, not just during ND. Ppl don’t want to fly flag means dun want to fly flag; like pig cannot fly means pig cannot fly, lah.

    Why so free to debate on such issues? So many other issues in SG dun want to debate – like why most expensive PM took 18 years to settle the leadership succession, and only with a 2nd choice team, clobbered together in the midst of a health crisis.

  • Parliament is a joke lah:

    Oredy for ND less and less flags being displayed over these past few years…what does that say ? Silent protests?
    So what for ask for more occassions to fly it?
    These ministars got nothing to say, just sit down and shut up.
    So many pressing issues at hand and they just talk rot for the sake of being seen and heard?..or else people forget who they are !

  • SINGAROAR:

    How can anyone support the flying of the flag half mast for a queen who was head of colonization. Look at the land division done by the British in various parts of the world that is causing sufferings to millions of people. Look at India and Pakistan, Israel and the Palestinian territory.People are dying everyday because of colonization. Africans were captured and made into slaves for centuries.So much evil and our govt. wants to honour the queen? If we condone wrong doing,it means we support the perpetrators. The jewels on the crown the queen wore belongs to the Indians and Africans. Should we celebrating the life of the queen or her death? While she was alive,she never made any attempt to apologize to those the British stole from,tortured and killed. The PAP should be busy trying to bring costs down for Singaporeans.They are not elected to participate in supporting the British tyranny of the past unless they are identifying themselves with the British.

    Right. Totally agree. Many events you list happened during QEII reign.

    Be careful though. You are making western worshipers, bananas, very angry.

  • I_am_Mike:

    Why the CCP 50c come out in doves when QEII passed away?

    Because… XJP was served “chateau haut brion 1989 graves” on 20/10/2015.

    The soft power displayed by QEII must be hard going down the throat. Lo

    So wasn’t TWN colonized by a CHN representative previously, hence CHN is now persistently claiming rights to it? LJ-talkers only slap themselves.

  • SINGAROAR:

    @OK lah
    How can she be nice when she was the head of a country that stole the wealth of millions of people and enslaved,tortured and prisoned them in their own countries or dragged them forcefully onto ships and dumped them in lands far away. Perhaps, what Chou En Lai said of LKY is true of the present PAP leadership, yellow on the outside but white inside.LHL,CCS studied in Cambridge.TCJ studied in Oxford and many others have also studied there so their allegiance is not with the colonized but with the evil perpetrators.

  • PAP mandate strong:

    Sex not embedded ?

    李易峰 fisaco immediately surfaced.
    Timing really coincidental.

    After all this 吳亦凡, 霍尊, 李雲迪, 王力宏 , …. Still the same. Maybe more discreet.

    1) “Scotland colony wants to break off from England” – did England flex military muscle against Scotland?

    2) “UK has broken off from EU” – did EU threaten to “reunite” UK by force?

    3) “Texas colony not happy with DC” – did Texas declare it wants independence?

    You quoted 3 examples, are FAILED to prove anything. Proven again your LJ-brain. Clearly you only read ccp propaganda. So creative, create more accounts to appear many have our views.

  • xoxo:

    Its good to show RESPECT.
    But being RESPECTFUL GOVT N PEOPLE goes beyond FLYING OUR NATIONAL FLAG for another SOVEREIGN’S QUEEN.
    THE G N sgs,first,ought to accord MORE RESOECT TO OUR OWN SINGAPOREANS,especially our SENIORS N ELDERLY NATION-BUILDERS.
    THROWING A MEAGRE $600 at our needy seniors n elderly retirees while granting HUGE FURLOUGH TO WELL-HEELED SG-PMEs n FTs from our ACCUMULATED RESERVES IS SURELY NOT ONLY *NOT SHOWING RESPECT* BUT DEMONSTRATE GRAVE DISRESPECT N INGRATITUDE.

    CAN ANY MINISTER SAY OTHERWISE?
