Ladies & gentlemen, the General Election is on!

In my last blog, I wrote that if they could they would not have any more election in Singapore.

I'm wrong. The firepower is out there in mainstream media indicating that they will have the election after all. Have you been papagandised (propagandised) by the following:
  • Donation of PM to Singapore Chinese Orchestra. [Link]
  • The ever-so-clever-no-retirement-thingy by MM [Link]
  • Ibrahim Yaacob soothing the Malay & Muslim community on the deteriorating Malay/Muslim population in Singapore due to the crazy granting of citizenship and PRs to Chinese and Indian immigrants.
  • SM Goh Chok Tong chastising Singapore's "champion grumblers" and taking them to task for not being mindful of the plight of the less fortunate Singaporeans. [Link]
Diversion, diversion and diversion . . . that's the tai chi that's been played ever so often by the PAP and shamelessly supported by the msm.

What has the valid complaints of
  1. The overwhelming import of humans creating the overcrowding of 5.1 million people in a tiny area of 704 km2 (271.8 sq mile) causing housing, transportation and social problems.
  2. The government taking more care of foreign imports than locals with $10 million Community Integration Fund (CIF) [Link]
  3. The irresponsible budget over run of the inaugural 13-day Youth Olympic Games (YOG) that surpassed original estimates of US$75 million ($104 million) by more than three times to $387 million [Link]
  4. The flooding of Singapore when it rains
  5. The "shooting-of-own-foot" $9,000 purchase of votes which insults the contribution of many older NSmen and . . . mother of all complaints
  6. The increasing cost of survival (living?) in housing, utilities, transportation and basic food
has got to do with the "perspective" of SM Goh?

"There are many people who are not able to benefit from our overall success." said SM Goh.

So whose bloody fault is it? The people (champion grumblers) or the PAP government?

I guess everyone knows the "overall success" benefits the PAP mintSters and their close ones most! Definitely not the poor and the less fortunate!

Who can forget the insensitive, "Do you want them to eat in hawker centre, food court or restaurant" when MP Lily Neo ask Mint$ter Vivian Balakrishnan for an increase in public assistance for the less fortunate!

Yes, the election is coming and with such vitriolic outbursts, them leaders are not buying themselves any votes!

We notice the increase Ko-yoke by PAP. Somehow, articles about people who are anti-PAP on the Straits Times give the public an impression that opposition to the norm are real bad dudes with criminal or arrest records.

So, what you have in The Straits Times are lots of good things done or initiated by Ministers while opposition or anti-PAP are people who are real bad dudes with police records.

Continue this all the way to election and you have another round of PAP won by >60% and shortly later, increase in something here, somethere and then Ministers salary goes up again due to long time no increase.

If one vote them in then one has to keep quiet and not complain for the next 5 years regardless what they do. That is the deal. No point vote for them and then start complaining about everything and anything for the next 5 years.

Are there Singaporeans able to show some value add contributions from SM Goh Chok Tong to this society since the Day he became a cabinet member.

Pardon me for asking for i can only recalled the many controversies from his policies and remarks. And the Remark from Mrs Goh that $600K was peanuts.

where should the ministers be paid so much when most of the work are done by layers of people below them. I think the problem is in order to keep them, one has to increse their salary on par with private sector so as not to lose them. The end result is that with the lower level pay increase, Ministers' pay has to move up so that their subordinate with long years of service will not be paid more than a new Minister.

Using the above logic, the side effect is the President's pay. Highest Salary but lowest productivity. Highest number of direct votes but negligible power i.e. dependent on Cabinet recommendation. Great retirement job....

The President was not even voted in, because they made the rules, which disqualified anyone else from standing for election, other than the one they nominated.

This is probably the system in Myanmar and North Korea.

It is well-known among civil servants that Goh makes lots of gaffes and weird remarks in his exchanges with foreign leaders. And he is very sensitive that he is not "snubbed" such that he would ensure he is not "missed out" by foreign leaders during the latter's visits to Singapore. (Sadly, he is that vain and haughty.) Truth be told, Goh is an insecure man, who harbours self-deluded pretentions (yet reinforced by yes-men around him) of being a "statesman".

With increase publicity of speeches of these millionairs, more smoke screens are created to calm the bees [Singaporeans] before GE. The purpose? To win election. Anything change?

No. We will still be cheated by banks as MAS is not as independent as Hong Kong.

No. There will still be 1.25 millions of them.

No. Middle age will still be out of job or earn a living that does not match their education.

Yes, Ministers pay will continue to go up.

Yes, President will still be drawing $3.5 millions a year without doing much.

Yes, PAP will still win and policies created will continue to favour other people than singaporeans.

Hahaha, Anon 3.04

Everything you said rings a bell with me.

But, sadly, this may be the last election for us to be heard. Unfortunately, you and me already have our votes marginalised and overwhelmed by the number of 'new citizen PAP supporters'.

Changes that we were hoping for will never materialise.

You do not want any hard surfaced to come in contact with the
soft delicate skin of your little one. You can choose to purchase complete infant
bedding sets, which include the fitted sheet, quilt and other accessories to enhance the beauty of
the room. The ones that do are typically not comfortable for either you or your babies.
