REFORM PARTY: 10 REAL DIRTY TRICKS BY HDB AND CPF

Roy Ngerng of Heart Truths, today published an article to expose the raw deal Singaporeans get from HDB and CPF. He makes many valid points, most of which I have made before on www.sonofadud.com. Unfortunately in his overeagerness to convict the PAP of fraud he makes an elementary error and simply gets it quite wrong. Whilst the error does not invalidate the fundamental point about the raw deal it does allow the PAP IB Brigade to seize on it and draw us away from valid criticisms. Roy’s fundamental error also distracts from the fact that CPF amounts to a regressive tax on lower-income Singaporeans and that the government uses its control over land to ensure that we overpay for a wasting asset which should belong to us rather than them, once we’ve paid for it.

FRAUD EXPOSED: THE DIRTY ROY NGERNG SCHEME TO TRICK SINGAPOREANS

This is going to be lengthy but this needs a rebuttal because there are things that the author intentionally excluded which makes it malicious. I’m referring to the article “Truth Exposed: The Dirty CPF-HDB Scheme To Trick Singaporeans“. I am not a fan of the CPF because I eschew the fact that it is only a good tool for people who are actually earning enough but does not compensate for the low income earners. I question the economic efficiency of having a large reserve in the form of CPF and the risk of it been siphoned off without the necessary safeguards. But I’m not going to spread lies about it and then weave it into some conspiracy theory. I don’t believe that the provident fund is the best model for Singapore at this point but given the political economic structures in place, it might be the only appropriate model in the foreseeable future. So let me take apart Mr Roy Ngerng malicious article

IS STARHUB SELLING STOLEN PRODUCTS?

I've bought a new SONY Xperia Z2 from Starhub thru a new phone line contract this afternoon. When I tried to register online for the product warranty on Sony's website, I was surprised to find it as not recognised. My second shock was when I called Starhub's hotline for assistance, they gave me Sony's helpdesk number and told me to settle it with them directly. Hence my questions to Starhub...

“LESBIANS ARE CANCER” Dr Syed Khairudin Aljunied is a Member of the PAP

Also, Dr Syed was also the YPAP vicechairperson for the Chong Pang Branch, which you can see in the photos. It is likely that he is being groomed for political office, and was using religion to try to rally the Malay-Muslim community to the PAP side. Is this why he got off lightly? Can you imagine what would have happened if an Opposition politician tried to use Islam to gain the support of the voters? He would be accused of being an Islamic fundamentalist, or even worse be detained under ISD! The PAP tried to character assassinate Jufrie Mahmood that way when he used the words 'Insha'Allah' (God Willing), but here Dr Syed got off scot-free!?

‘Hidden’ unemployment problem in Singapore

If this number of unemployed is translated to number of families affected by unemployment, the number of residents who are affected by unemployment becomes much bigger. So, there is a serious unemployment problem in Singapore. The group which is most affected is in fact not the “young” with post-secondary education, but the “old” PMETs. Indeed, while these PMETs are out of work, isn’t it ironic to find that for the same month of December 2013, there were 175,100 employment pass holders working in Singapore?

Appeal for waiver of $76,000 bond payment for failing teaching course from Minister of education Mr Heng Swee Kiat

I am appealing on behalf of Mr Zulfikli, who has written to us regarding MOE’s request for his daughter Zafirah Hamizah Bte Zulfikli to pay back a bond of $76,000 for failing her teaching course at NIE. We also find the bond payback both ridiculous and unreasonable especially when hundreds of millions of taxpayer money is splashed on foreign students studying on scholarship here.

SG telcos find new ways to fleece customers

Recently, we read about how Starhub and Singtel used dubious methods to overcharge customers. Just now, I realised M1 is up to sneaky ways to con us of our money too. My latest M1 bill had 7-8$ of something called voicemail access. When I called them, M1 told me that this was the duration for which people left voice mails for me. I was shocked as I was never told I would be charged for the time people left voicemails for me. If anything, we were told that under our plan, there is free voicemail.

The alleged dog abuse case at Pasir Ris Camp

A lot of people were saying that the way they tie the dog in the toilet is cruel. Personally, I think they could have restrain the dog in a better manner. But bear in mind that these are soldiers, not train animals rescuers. They do not have the proper equipment to catch and confine a stray dog until AVA arrives. Thus they use whatever tools they have in camp to do the job. I believe they tried their best and without ill intent. They could have done better but I wouldn’t call it dog abuse. After all, AVA did perform a medical checkup on the dog and found no signs of abuse.

Unscrupulous shop in Kembangan Plaza Selling Fake Xiaomi Phone as real ones

I called the shop and told them what I found out, but the salesman keep saying that this is an original set from Hong Kong and it is from the Xiaomi factory. I asked him repeatedly if it is a real Xiaomi phone and he just don't wanna answer. I said I want my money back but the salesman said goods sold cannot be returned and he will check wiith his boss I can get a refund. It's been more than 1 day and I haven't heard from them. PACTECH COMPUTER is located at 18, Jalan Masjid, 02-03 Kembangan Plaza. It is very near Kembangan MRT. They also sell computers, printers and other brands of phones. Please be careful of these unscrupulous merchants and not everything bought from QOO 10 is authentic. I hope Xiaomi company and Police can look into this before more people get conned.
