Was the mass event by the PAP Women's Wing an "essential" event? Even our schools have suspended such large gatherings of children and students, and the cluster at SAFRA Jurong have proved that it is best not to hold such events at this time.
Last week, some dubious FB pages made posts alleging that a prominent Progress Singapore Party (PSP) member, Mr Brad Bowyer, had quit the party. However, our anonymous sources debunked such fake news from these FB pages about Brad Bowyer quitting the party.. In fact they reaffirmed he remains a valued PSP member. They explained that Brad Bowyer had deleted his FB fan page simply because he does not want to be in the limelight at this moment.
Every Sunday, large groups of maids congregate at Lucky Plaza and the open fields beside Kallang and Paya Lebar MRT stations. When meeting their friends, these foreign domestic workers take food and beverages that they have prepared at home to consume together at these gatherings. When they leave, empty food packs and drink cans are strewn at these places.
SMRT have not commented on the latest track fault. The Transport Minister have also not spoken on how train breakdowns and crowds waiting for more than 5 minutes on a single platform might not be a good thing in light of the coronavirus situation.
Trade unions, representing hundreds of thousands of workers, are a threat and must be rendered toothless. Freedom of peaceful assembly, which can bring together, perhaps tens of thousands of people, to press forth a common interest, is a threat and must be curtailed.
Yet, it does seem puzzling that there had been no updates thus far of our SAF troops who had been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Are there still there? How many of them had actually been sent over to help the US in efforts to counter terrorism in those countries?
Dr Lee Wei Ling has taken to Facebook once again to voice out her thoughts on Lee Kuan Yew, where she firmly said LKY had full control of his own will, and that he alone had signaled the finality of his will. Lee Wei Ling then took a dig at AGC, who is pursuing the case against Lee Suet Fern for claims that she misled LKY on his will, by indicating that to think LKY is not in control of his own will is daft.
Mr Perera questioned the Finance Minister on whether the Reserves should always go up and up at the same rate now as was in previous years, especially since 2008, where during the global financial crisis, Singapore had to use a tiny fraction of the Reserves. For comparison, DPM Heng said that Singapore's Reserves need not be dipped into during this period, as businesses and Singaporeans are hit hard by the COVID-19 situation.
In the post Budget debate in Parliament on Friday, WP's Pritam Singh reiterated the Workers' Party stance on the GST, even though DPM and Finance Minister has said that GST will not be raised in 2021, but will have to be raised eventually by 2025. In his speech, Mr Pritam Singh said that the WP still stand by their earlier comments, that the GST is a regressive tax, and that the tax raise would hit the low and middle income, retirees and seniors particularly hard as they would have to manage their expenditures more frugally, because offsets do not last forever.
In her cannot make it English, as she rounded up praising Heng, she took to quoting the anthem of football team Liverpool, You’ll Never Walk Alone. She said, in as straight a face as a clown could maintain, “Perhaps my thoughts will be best expressed by quoting the lyrics from the Liverpool FC song about when you’re walking through a storm. Hold your head up high. Don’t be afraid of the dark because at the end of the storm, there’s a golden sky.”
