ABSURD TO HAVE RESERVED PRESIDENCY BUT DENY HONG LIM PARK SPEECH DUE TO "RACIAL ISSUES"

A netizen thinks it is absurd to deny people from speaking about the upcoming PE at Hong Lim Park. "In reserving a Malay candidate for the presidential election, it is inevitable that race will be part of the subject matter should we want to openly call out on the government's policy. Hence, it can never get debated publicly by citizens due to existing regulations."

POLICY SUGGESTIONS TO MAKE SINGAPORE A BETTER HOME FOR SINGAPOREANS

I have been attending the almost monthly FOSG (Future of Singapore) public forums at the Agora, initiated and organised by Professor Tay Keng Soon. They are very interesting discussions by notable Singaporeans like Toh Han Shih, Jack Sim, Donald Low, Yeoh Lam Keong, etc, about the future of Singapore - which got me thinking ...In the last 20 years or so, I have written a few thousand articles, made a few hundred presentations, had a few hundred letters published in newspaper forums, etc.

Since most of the time - I am analysing statistics - I try not to talk too much about suggested solutions, as I feel that I am just an ordinary citizen who does not have access to the information, resources, etc, that may be needed to make meaningful policy suggestions.

Well, for a change - here are my humble suggestions on what policies may need to be reviewed to make the lives of Singaporeans better, particularly for lower income Singaporeans - in the hope that my fellow Singaporeans may contribute their ideas and comments too, and enrich the policy review processes of our policy makers
