Lee Hsien Yang: Troubling Circumstances Surrounding Allegations Involving Lucien Wong

The front page of The Straits Times 25 Oct 1986 article "Report made against lawyer for alleged removal of legal files" has been making its rounds on social media. It reported an incident in 1986 where a female senior partner and a male lawyer at a leading law firm were reported to the police for alleged wrongful removal of company files. This issue also caught the attention of Lee Hsien Yang, the younger son of LKY and a Progress Singapore Party member.

Parti Liyani's Case Shows Cronyism-Based Justice System Needs Reform

The recent saga on the acquittal of a maid, Parti Liyani, has sent shockwaves throughout the Nation on the severe state of our Justice system which is in need of urgent reforms. We have always pride ourselves, as MP Jamus Lim puts it, on efficiency and not compassion or the quest for truth. Hence, the situation we are facing now is dire and fast slipping into a scenario similar to Najib Razak’s Malaysia. I wish these issues had surfaced before the elections! Is it too late now, only the PSP and WP MPs will know?

Aljunied Voter Insulted And Disappointed At Being Referred To As Free Rider

I, am a potential voter in Aljunied, and I have always identified as a opposition voter. And as Leader of the Opposition (LO) has predicted, I am genuinely insulted and disappointed at being referred to as a free rider. I still contribute to my country, as well as its reserves. If anything, please don’t be a hypocrite PM. Your party has said in Parliament, that we must not let diversity lead to polarisation among Singaporeans.

Commentary: On "Free Riders"

As I listened intuitively again to the PM’s speech on Wednesday to the Presidential address of our 14th Parliament, I can’t help but feel the current incessant attacks on the PM’s remarks about “free riders” have been taken out of context. It seemed as though the PM was desperately trying to buy his way out of the argument on the reason not to vote for the Opposition. Political discourse here should be shaped by sharp acumen, logic and sound reasoning rather than just jumping on the bandwagon to draw blood.

Commentary: Civil Servants, Unelected Can Carry This?

Commentary: Civil Servants, Unelected Can Carry This?

Political appointees have no financial role, safe to say merely ‘approving’ the use of the $5 billion. If the PM is talking about decision making, it is the civil servants who are making the decision behind the scene, collating, presenting, advising where the draw down and transfer of money comes from. So is the prime minister trying to draw wool over people’s eyes when he said, ‘It is a big decision, S$5 billion of supplementary budget.

Owner Of Nightmare Unit At Belvia DBSS Frustrated With Inaction By Authorities

A Facebook user has come forward with multiple complaints about their new Bedok DBSS unit which turned out to be a nightmare to live in. Since moving in from 2015, the DBSS owners have been plagued with building faults which ultimately led to the unit having deplorable conditions. To make matters worse, the owners had tried reaching out countless times to various authorities such as the DBSS developer, Town Council, Housing Development Board (HDB), Public Utilities Board (PUB).
