The world has changed beyond recognition since our independence.
Despite globalisation, advancements in IT, etc PAP’s system has hardly evolved with the times. NS, CPF, ISA, etc require a revamp or abolishment but PAP has insisted on tweaks as THE solution.
How is setting up more committees populated by own kakis going to help? Or more government agencies such as WDA with its 1001 schemes which don’t address the root causes of issues?
And when these fail, yet more tweaks.
Singapore is at a crossroads and if propaganda, PAP control, zero transparency and accountability continue to rule the day, then we’ll continue to be at a standstill. Having fun watching others overtake us?
Our present situation is best illustrated by the incident at the junction of Yio Chu Kang and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5 two days ago. [http://news.asiaone.com/news/singapore/chaos-yio-chu-kang-road-junction-traffic-lights-stop-working]
Singapore at a crossroads but, thanks to PAP, we are currently experiencing a standstill.
The elitist PAP system has been failing before our very eyes for decades. Is this the Singapore (image above) that we want?
