GOH CHOK TONG: PNG ENG HUAT IS SPREADING RUMOURS BY READING LEE SIBLINGS' FB POSTS

ESM Goh Chok Tong lashed out at Workers' Party's Png Eng Huat in Parliament today for merely reading out quotes from Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling's Facebook instead of stating his position on the issue. "Anyone can simply read. That is akin to spreading rumour. As an honourable Member of Parliament, he should state his position on what he has read. That is what we are elected as MPs for - to have a clear view on issues".

He invited Low Thia Kiang and other opposition MPs to state their stance clearly regarding PM Lee and the Government's integrity. Nevertheless, he also agreed with them that allegations against the PM are baseless, calculated, and should be stopped.

WP LEON PERERA: DOES TAN CHUAN-JIN KNOW THE MEANING OF "STIRRING HATE & ANGER"?

I was surprised to read Minister Tan Chuan-Jin's reply to Mr Png Eng Huat's post on queueing at the JB checkpoint, which stated that the post was "aimed at stirring hate and anger." Mr Png's post was a reflection on his experience of seeing some grassroots leaders and residents receiving expedited clearance. It was not inflammatory.

MR PNG'S POST WAS AIMED AT STIRRING HATE & ANGER, ALSO AT MY RESIDENTS & VOLUNTEERS

On the return journey, ICA facilitated the clearance for me and my security officers who were carrying their firearms, as well as the residents and volunteers who were with me on my bus.

Our ICA officers do not have an easy responsibility. Cross border traffic at the causeway is one of the highest in the world. They have to maintain security while also trying to ensure a smooth flow of people entering and departing daily. I know because I too have been in the queues when on personal trips.

I had the impression Mr Png waited a very long time.... But the purpose of his post, and that of his compatriots, was clear. It was not about the old folks. It was aimed at stirring hate and anger, not only to be directed at me, which I can understand politically, but also at my residents and volunteers (who organised as well as helped guide each bus), as well as our officers who secure our borders. It's unfortunate that he and his colleagues chose to politicise the issue.

PRIMARY 1 REGISTRATION PRIORITY ONLY FOR PAP-AFFILIATED COMMUNITY LEADERS?

To qualify for Phase 2B priority, community leaders in the Residents’ Committee, Neighbourhood Committee, Citizen’s Consultative Committee, Community Club Management Committee and the Community Development Council have to serve actively for at least one year prior to the P1 registration exercise. Most of the community leaders serve more than the minimum period, and they continue to serve even after their children had gained admission into the school.

WORKERS PARTY: TWEAK CPF SYSTEM TO HELP OLDER SINGAPOREANS!

Opposition Member of Parliament Png Eng Huat on Thursday (May 29) suggested changes to the CPF system to help Singaporeans cope better with retirement. Speaking in Parliament, Mr Png proposed that it was time for the Government to review the formula used to determine interest rates for the Special, Medisave and Retirement Accounts (SMRA). He also called for a third CPF Life plan so that Singaporeans can get a monthly payout starting from the age of 60.
