'Umbrage' Is Typical Pappy Quality'Umbrage' Is Typical Pappy Quality The recent show of arrogance, talking down and condescending by the paper general who sank two ship is nothing new. If you look carefully at Cotton Chan and Paper General Gan, they talk in similar body language and tone. The typical top down, please do not question, your duty is to take order; the typical army SOP. Remember...

Contract Tracing A Failure, Trace Together Will Be NextContract Tracing A Failure, Trace Together Will Be Next Looking at Vietnam, Hongkong, Taiwan and New Zealand, these are great samples. The key is mask on, they had introduced mask on very early stage and kept numbers low. Singapore if it had done the same, we would also be the same. Unfortunately, poor vision and overlook leading to congested and dirty dorms extrapolating the...

Assistance for Mr Daniel De CostaAssistance for Mr Daniel De Costa Appended is the fundraiser link of Daniel De Costa who is facing the 2nd half of his TOC defamation trial next Monday at 9am, State Courts. He has consistently stood against the oppressive powers since we knew each other back in 2006, when we first joined the Opposition and he always had a heart for the underdog. He...

Political Succession In Red Dot Is Always PlottedPolitical Succession In Red Dot Is Always Plotted Suddenly Ah Kiat announced he is stepping back, people started to think political succession is in chaos. Don't be stupid la, it is planned, the man behind is Pinky and Empress Dowager. Remember Ah Kiat when he recovered from his stroke, the first thing he asked is work. Why would Ah Kiat suddenly said he is too old for...

Crowdfunding for Roy NgerngCrowdfunding for Roy Ngerng There are very few people like Roy Ngerng who dare to speak up on behalf of all Singaporeans on the CPF issue while working at the Tan Tock Seng Hospital as a Health Executive. I first heard him speak at the Speakers Corner in Hong Lim some years ago and as a 72 year old retiree then I admired his courage and gumption...

Support for Roy NgerngSupport for Roy Ngerng I am penning this in support of Roy Ngerng, who is in exile overseas so he can work and pay off a debt he owes to our already over bloated PM through constant victories in a series of defamation suits. Roy is well educated and holds a fairly decent well-paying job, that is, until, he decided to embark on a path less...

Performance of NCMPsPerformance of NCMPs I previously feedback on the severely lacking medical facilities in the western region encompassing Jurong and West Coast GRCs and had received a call from the Polyclinic.

It is so confusing here in SingaporeIt is so confusing here in Singapore Now I wonder. Is this legal? I held up my book in a public place without prior permission to be photographed. What if I printed the cover out and pasted it on a placard? What if I added a smiley face to the printout that said "Support Me". It is so confusing here in Singapore.   * Facebook post by Yee Jenn...

The paradox of the Public Order ActThe paradox of the Public Order Act This whole thing of being investigated for holding a playcard without a permit is getting ridiculous. It is now PAP MP Louis Ng at the receiving end of the police investigation for holding a playcard to support hawkers. This is similar to Jolovan Wham's case where he held a placard with a smiley face in front of a police...

I'll tell you why Progress Singapore Party's NCMP Leong Mun Wai's suggestion of $1,200 levy for employment pass holders will rebalance PMET jobs in the mid-high salary range towards Singaporeans.
