The government should provide leadership for major change

Many practices become outdated and ineffective. They need to be changed. But who should be responsible to show the way?

I consider it to be the duty of the government to recognize that change is needed and take the necessary steps to make the change.

Here are some examples:

a) We need new employment practice. The job market is quite different from the old days, in many ways.

b) We need to change our education policies, so that our young people can get jobs that are available in the future.

c) We need to increase our birth rate and make it attractive for families to have children.

As a society, we have not make the necessary changes. Who is to blame?

I blame the government and the ministers. It is their duty to recognize the problem, and to provide the leadership and practical steps to implement the change and achieve the desired goals.

Some apologists said that we should not expect the government to do everything. This is a nonsense statement.

It is the duty of the government to recognize the problem faced by society and the economy. It is their duty to make the changes and improvements.

The current ministers have a mistaken belief that the market will find the solution. In most cases, the market cannot find the solution. In fact, if the market is not regulated, the enterprising business people will exploit the market failures to make a large profit for themselves, at the expense of the consumers.

We need a competent government who is able to make the required changes and improvements.

  • theforgottongeneration:

    The Golden MeeSiamMaiHum recently told Singaporeans that we must be united or SG will not be able to remain competitive, blah, blah, blah. Yet in his 18+ years with highest pay, Singaporeans have been polarized 60-40, with all three elections under him getting the WORST electoral results for pap in history. He talks about Trust in his G, but still labelled voters as Free Riders when he found a large portion of Singaporeans have no confidence in him (or his Clowns). Does this sounds like leadership?

    More like he wants Unity and Trust to be bestowed on him on a silver platter (like all things in his life), but sorry, such things must be EARNED, hor – something that a person that doesn’t know anything about mee siam will never understand.

  • idontbelieveinccpbs:

    Mr TKL you are supporter of CCP, PAP, Russia and autocracy. The autocracy model priorities party, party members and party affiliated cronies before the country.

    Look at China now? Their economy is so poor, HKies and PRCs are running away from HK and China and moving to Singapore etc. Does CCP care about citizens? Covid 0 or economy, which is more important? Without economy, as good as dead. Covid 0 is unsustainable, but who dares to tell President Xi?

    PAPPY does not care about the citizens, they only care about POWER, own riches and winning GE. If they can win GE but citizens suffer, they dont care. Many of these politicians have significant stakes in private businesses, park under their cronies. I am sure you know.

    What you said will work if the country is run by people who put citizens’ interest in number 1 place. That is likely in democractic countries where they fear if they dont work for citizens, they will be voted out. For our island, we have been trained, coerced and brainwashed into sheep that we could allow these politicians to screw our lives and yet so afraid to vote against them.

    To fulfill what you said, only a new party can do it as old dogs do not do new tricks.

  • Stupid Singaporeans Vote PAP:

    Why don’t Sinkies realize that the fault lie with them and the change start with them doing the right thing? No point keep blaming them. Take responsibility that you had voted in a wrong government & get it corrected for the future generations. Change the government, stupid.

  • SINGAROAR:

    Since the death of GKS, the PAP has turned into an enforcement agency. Singaporeans have not experienced governance in the interest of the State or Citizens for decades. There is no point to keep repeating that the govt.should provide leadership which it lacks. Army generals are forcing us into obedience.The only way to change this, is to vote in a new govt.

  • NotMyProblem:

    “a) We need new employment practice…” Yes, employ more FTs and CECA.

    “b) We need to change our education policies …. “. You cannot eat your degrees. But fake degrees from FTs are welcomed.

    “c) We need to increase our birth rate … “. Import foreigners is better and faster. Babies don’t pay $1M for HDB flats. Babies don’t vote.

    “It is the duty of the government to recognize the problem faced by society …” Their ivory tower is too far from the society. See nothing, hear nothing so need to do nothing. You die your business!

    “The current ministers have a mistaken belief that the market will find the solution.” This is called a lazy government!

    “We need a competent government … ” But never and ever be from the PAP!

    If Singaporeans, true blue NS-serving and served Singaporeans, wish to change, one and only way is to kick out the PAP. PAP has destroy the government!

  • Policy change:

    Best change must comes from Policy makers.
    It is their job, especially highly paid one.
    First priority is the well being of the ordinarily Citizen.
    They should be judge on how best they have improve the lives of the bottom 10% of our Citizen.
    Not by GDP or how many FT millionaires park their money here…only caused higher COL and more misery to the poor and the elderly without support.

  • Job problem created by PAP:

    Last time the job requirements is not so many and strict, now they require many stuff. This is because the available of foreign labor send in by PAP. Education requirement is to make many people who fit the job without education requirement cannot get the job. Then now there is this skill requirement which make those with education without skill cannot the job. With foreign labor, now those with education and skill without experience cannot get the job. With Singapore policy to change sector and modernize or digitalize, those with education, skill and experience cannot get the job because they are deem to be irrelevant. PAP is creating many requirements to make people cannot meet requirement like president post. Think about fresh graduate who has no experience facing the great difficulty and people who cannot learn like older people, how do you expect them to get jobs. No jobs mean expect them to die. Skillsfuture is rubbish. No money and learning ability, how to get skill. It is not everyone can skill up and get jobs because of Skillsfuture. It is about getting requirement on paper or resume, not about people to get jobs. People have potential or fit job are wipe out because of requirements.

  • Western Gov Cares, my foot:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11244447/Praise-Kwartengs-bold-45billion-package-tax-cuts-Chancellor-admits-UK-RECESSION.html

    European countries, EU, NATO all fight Russia at the expense of their own citizens. Now, energy has gone up 5 times, 10 times or worst. Shops have to close, and people have no heating in cold cold winter.

    In comes the new UK gov to help the people (PAPPY style). The poor get a few pounds or a few hundred pounds off. The rich get thousands and thousands off. Same as the pappies. Poor get $600, while millions or billions thrown at very profitable companies.

  • Idiot:

    Mismatched of KPIs.

    KPI of PAP:

    1. GDP growth must be same or higher each year
    2. Voter base must be increased via granting Citizenship
    3. Each Government owned entity must turn a profit annually.

    KPI of voters:

    1. Cheaper flats and cars
    2. Higher salaries each year
    3. More annual leave

    How?… always mismatched… never will be aligned.

  • KT2:

    One thing I feel the Party Against People being the majority, has so many white MPs. But I think many of them r afraid to challenge their millionisters of the speeches they make in order to make the debates in pariahment robust. Perhaps, ppl think they do not want or fear to “rock the boat” ! Their MPs must dare to ask tough questions or fear being “marked” ?? In the past, many of them did e.g. former MP DR Tan and some others, I could not recall their names.

    20 odd years or so ago,i bumped into Late EP Nathan and feedbacked to him about *MEMBER-GET-MEMBER* malpractices of FT-managers who recruited their ill-qualified *village boys* to Replace productive sg-PMETs.
    20 years later,Agencies like A*Star could allow INDIAN FT with FAKE DEGREES to be employed when even non-scholar sgs find it difficult to get in?

    What FT POLICY is that?
    And,to save face,THEY QUICKLY SAID *SKILL SETS* MATTER MORE?
    So,why put $CHOLARS IN TOP JOB$ WHEN THEIR SKILL SETS ARE SO ATROCIOUS?
    It amounts to *UMBRAGE* !

  • Harder Truths:

    In my current company the new bosses from HK are fighting the old bosses from India and Malaysia. The HK bosses first priority is to replace as much of the staff with their HK new hires. it is only a matter of time the remainder of us will be chopped. It is also stupid to think the Regime will care as long as all these new FT vote for them.

    Now that China’s economy is toast the rich in China are running to $inkieland and other safe havens buying property etc. to keep their money safe. Again this raises all property and cost of living. We are still in early days of this phenomenon. Let us see how many $inkies can stop from becoming beggars in the next few years. Having a mortgaged HDB does not mean $inkies are safe – it just means they are beggars with a mortgage.

    Im sure most of us already came across recent local media (and foreign)
    articles stating that SG is now the 5th richest city in the world…with 250,000 millionaires.
    Probably half of them belong to the PAP, families and kakis.
    No ordinary SGporen has much reason to rejoice at this news!
