S'PORE PUBLIC SERVICE SHOULD CUT SPENDING FIRST BEFORE HEAVY TAXING OF S'POREANS

A Singaporean man named Eddy See wrote into the mainstream media to criticize the recent slew of tax hikes dished onto Singaporeans. Having worked with Ministries and Statutory Boards and seen them work up close and personal, he noticed numerous wastage of public monies by these public servants. He observed that should an approved budget funding be under-utilized, it would risked being questioned and this made public servants spend the balance funds on unnecessary things through variation orders.

PETITION TO RETAIN SUNGEI ROAD MARKET, BOUND TO END IN FAILURE

About 200 people have so far signed a petition calling on the authorities to either retain or conserve the Sungei Road flea market. This petition was started by Mr Koh Ah Koon, 76, the president of the Association for the Recycling of Second Hand Goods.

He said that he will continue to collect signatures for the petition, until the day the Sungei Road flea market is supposed to close down, which is in July. The market was cited by one signatory as a venue that provides the elderly hawkers a legitimate source of income and can be seen as an engagement programme for seniors - not that different from those run by community centres. The area in Sungei Road had already been earmarked for residential use.

HDB THREATENS NOT TO RELEASE BTO KEYS TO SINGLE MUM, MP CANNOT DO ANYTHING TO HELP

I am currently waiting for my 3-room BTO in Woodlands which will be ready in 2018 but HDB is already threatening not to release the keys should I fail to adhere to a payment plan that was superimposed by them due to past arrears. I am being put up at a rental flat in Chinatown and paying higher rates due to location (even though its a 1 rm flat) and MSF has rejected my application last year for help for my growing kids, stating that my salary exceeded their ceiling criteria. All these are known to HDB which repeatedly impressed they are not a charity and insist that I reexplain my situation to MSF "to be fair to other applicants". I do not know what they mean by that as HDB also knows I am using half of my $2000 odd salary to service loans that I took for my children as the CDC had in the past, rejected my application for financial assistance several times.

I sought out my MP over the failure to resolve this issue amicably with HDB and the subsequent letters faced rejection over and over again. Even my clan association which stepped in failed to get MOS Desmond Lee's attention, despite initial "assurances they will be able to do so". I then wrote to Mr Leon Pereira (whose party contested my area the other round) as a last resort as I want him to raise it in Parliament for airing but he said he "can't do much" and his party colleagues lament the fact far too many residents in Jalan Besar are facing the same problems that they simply do not have the resources to help and neither can the incumbent MPs due to the presence of their Party Whip.
