Former Presidential hopeful and Singapore's all time second favourite Tan, Tan Kin Lian, has boldly said what every sane Singaporean was thinking, that PM Lee uses a lot of wow words, colourful charts and bombastic Powerpoint presentations during his National Day Rally, but actually the actual problems that Singaporeans faced are not addressed at all.
SCDF said they responded to a fire in a fifth-floor unit of Block 158 Yung Loh Road at about 7.45pm and put out the fire with a water jet. Of the four people taken to hospital, this include a woman who had to be rescued from a kitchen ledge by firefighters. She had apparently been on the ledge hanging on for dear life for about 20 minutes. Her neighbours saw her on the ledge, and notified the SCDF officers immediately.
This is the same Singapore football that has seen no gold medals ever in the SEA Games, where only South East Asian teams take part, or the same Singapore whose own professional league have been won by foreign invited teams in the past four years. Maybe his target should have been for Singapore football to win something first in the local leagues, or the regional Games. That already seems a hard task.
Several economists have said that jobs in Singapore could be hit hard as economic weakness widens and seeps into the services sector. This is in response to the dismal economic and trade data announced by the government on Tuesday.
The Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) has apparently asked Singapore's best marathoner, Soh Rui Yong, to keep their dispute private and away from the public eye. Soh however, is continuing the fight against the SNOC, saying that as a public entity, SNOC should maintain high standards of accountability and transparency.
This was the third huge vegetation fire that occurred on Monday. Earlier in the day, two separate vegetation fires broke out along Jurong Road and Pang Sua Canal. The fire at Jurong apparently was as bog as 10 football fields. Investigations are still being carried out by the SCDF on all three fires.
A 25 year old man was arrested by the police on Wednesday, just two days before National Day, for a suspected case of burning the Singapore flag. The Police were first alerted by the public about a case of a number of Singapore flags burnt.
The sorry state of Singapore football took another downward step, as this time, riot police and the SWAT team was called in to handle an alleged brawl between two set of players after their football match had ended. This time, the location is in Hougang Stadium, and one of the team involved in the incident have been named as Yishun Sentek Mariners FC
So, what he is basically saying is that voting requires maturity, and those below 21 years old are not matured enough to decide on their future. He did not, however, explain why Singapore's young men are required to serve NS when they turn 18. For context, these immature young men are required to handle weapons and grenade during their NS obligations. So they are not mature to vote, but mature enough to handle dangerous weapons that can really kill.
Chee Soon Juan has fired another salvo towards breaking PAP's monopoly in Singapore politics, by calling for all opposition party in Singapore to work together to gain voters' trust and their votes. Dr Chee also said that the differences between the country’s opposition are ‘minuscule’ compared to their common stance.
