Pasir Ris HDB Lifts Breaks Down For 6 Hours, Town Council Office Went Missing

Residents also indicated that there was one other lift, but that was undergoing upgrading works, so they are left with the one lift that broke down. Calls to the Essential Maintenance Service Unit (EMSU) by the residents resulted in the EMSU telling them they cannot do anything, while the Town Council office did not answer residents' calls, even though it was on a Thursday afternoon, when every salaried employees are supposed to be working.

Fear Mongering Does Not Work In Singapore Politics Anymore

Fear Mongering Does Not Work In Singapore Politics Anymore

Of course, we know now these had not happened. Aljunied GRC did not become a slum, in fact, they are thriving under WP's stewardship. No one cannot spread CECA untruths, as the real reason behind CECA was not even made public by the government. Singapore had not fallen to ruins despite falsehoods spread by the incumbent party themselves, falsehoods like HDB flats are cash cows forever, and CPF is your money.

Ex AMKTC General Manager Jailed 27 Months For Bribery, Why TC MPs Quiet?

The question was, how did Wong get away with four full years of accepting bribes and awarding contracts to his 'friends'? Did the AMKTC MPs, all of whom should have been privy to his financial dealings, not noticed something was amiss? After all, Wong is just the GM. Surely, the award of contracts should be under the purview of the TC's top echelons, in this case the AMK GRC MPs themselves. Were the leaders of this TC not discharging their fiduciary duties to the best of their abilities?

SPP's Jose Raymond Criticises Govt, Says Their PMD Ban Was Not Well Thought Off

This clearly showed that the policy was not overly thought through, because if they were, then the funding would have been announced together with the policy. Jose Raymond opined that the realisation from the government that they had created a bigger problem after they banned the PMDs only came after the delivery riders came out and stated their rice bowls were gone overnight.

CPF Retirement Sum Should Be Regularly Adjusted, But What About Those Who Cannot Afford?

CPF Retirement Sum Should Be Regularly Adjusted, But What About Those Who Cannot Afford?

This was stated by Minister Josephine Teo, whose obscene salary means she will probably no need to set aside any retirement money, as her role as a Minister in the PAP government ensures she is well paid to retire anytime she chooses to. And now, she is telling Singaporeans that they do not have enough money for retirement and they should save more. Would Singaporeans not safe money if they could? Why is the Minister stating the bloody obvious?

Bukit Batok Fire: Murali Says Sorry, But Shouldn't He Be Taken To Task?

Bukit Batok Fire: Murali Says Sorry, But Shouldn't He Be Taken To Task?

Now is this not putting the blame somewhere else and refusing to take responsibility? We know that if this happened in a WP ward, the MPs there would definitely be taken to task and be accused of not doing their duty to ensure resident's safety, even though the problem lies with Town Council staff. What about Murali then? Would he be let off without a single admonishment?

PAP Had No Plans In Place When Introducing PMD Ban Overnight

A good solution is one that takes into consideration the interests of as many users as possible, which of course include the safety of pedestrians on footpaths. But what we have seen with the reactions of the food delivery riders, where they gathered in big groups to meet MPs to hear them out, it is clear that no one was appeased in this fiasco of a decision by the PAP. This goes to show that the PAP has no idea how to solve the problem they themselves created. They have really lost their way.

PMD Riders To Get Their Voice Back At HLP, After Lam Pin Min's Monologue

But come 23rd November, PMD riders have been given a platform to air their grievances in public, without fear of getting cut off by Lam Pin Min or any of the PAP MPs who so readily agreed with the overnight ban. PMD delivery riders are invited to come and speak your mind at Hong Lim Park, and let Lam Pim Min and the other ministers know that they are taking away your livelihoods by taking away your PMDs.

Lam Pin Min Met Largest PMD Turnout In His MPS, But Did Not Allow Them To Speak

Lam Pin Min Met Largest PMD Turnout In His MPS, But Did Not Allow Them To Speak

While this will be painted in the MSM as PAP MPs going out of their way to accommodate the PMD riders by meeting them and having a dialogue with them, the reality is that this was nothing more than a PR exercise, where the angry and unhappy PMD riders are gathered under one roof, and told in no uncertain terms that the government will never budge from their stand. This was never a dialogue, but a monologue from a PAP MP.

Is Integrity Telling People In Advance About GST Hike, Or Saying Sorry For GST Hike

Is Integrity Telling People In Advance About GST Hike, Or Saying Sorry For GST Hike

The fact that GST is going to be raised sooner or later now does not even surprise Singaporeans anymore. So, is integrity really about telling Singaporeans in advance about the expected hike, or actually apologising to Singaporeans that all those noise about GST not being raised were in the end not true? Shouldn't DPM Heng, who is also the Finance Minister, show more integrity to Singaporeans by saying that the government could not fulfill its promise of just four years before, and thus apologise for this breaking of promise? That is integrity.
