Commentary: Normality Is Finally Back Somewhat!

Commentary: Normality Is Finally Back Somewhat!

This sudden lifting of restrictions is nothing short of a bright streak of sunlight breaking through this storm of doom and gloom. I beg of you people to practice whatever it takes to restore our signature brand of lukewarm peace. Before I go, I should warn you of this: The sudden re-opening of every bit of business and recreation will be overwhelming. There has never been any precedent of such a thing happening apart from war or shortage. I wouldn't blame you if you'd explode and run around your favourite spot. But tone down the excitement a little bit. At least enough to remember "One arm's length away from people". Or was it 2 ?

GE2020: SDP Member Reminds Taxpayers About The Consequences Of Budget 2020

GE2020: SDP Member Reminds Taxpayers About The Consequences Of Budget 2020

Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) member Fadly Azad wrote on his Facebook about Budget 2020. While Singaporeans should be thankful for the cash payouts, he reminded Singaporeans that the money handed out by the government actually came from taxpayers. Remember that one way which the government gets this money is by taxing us, and "whatever they give you now they will take it back sooner or later". With the General Elections looming closer, he calls for Singaporeans to vote wisely. We can either choose to vote in a government who cares more about money and treats its people as digits, or vote in a government that is more concerned about our welfare and well being.

Kumaran Pillai: Fringe Parties Recklessly Colliding With Larger Parties In 3-Cornered Fights

Kumaran Pillai: Fringe Parties Recklessly Colliding With Larger Parties In 3-Cornered Fights

Progress Singapore Party member Kumaran Pillai was asked by a few journalists about the state of opposition unity in the upcoming General Elections (GE). He answered that there is a loose alliance among the larger parties. These parties have a mutual respect and understanding to avoid 3-cornered fights. Kumaran Pillai also said that certain "fringe parties" have been very reckless by going on a head-on collision course. However he believes in democracy, and having a plurality of voices is a good thing. Therefore he still encourages all parties to contest in the GE if they really feel that they are bringing something extra to the table.

COVID19: Singapore Currently Facing Oversupply of Eggs

When Malaysia announced its lockdown in March, Singaporeans rushed to supermarkets to stock up on eggs and shelves were empty in no time. Prices of eggs started to increase slightly due to border restrictions. Fast forward 3 months, Malaysia is out of lockdown and has resumed their supply. Eggs are flowing into Singapore from Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and recently Poland. At the same time, demand from F&B dropped. As a result, egg suppliers find themselves having too many eggs, some having to discard as many as 250k eggs.

GE2020: Workers Party Politician Bernard Chen Predicts General Elections July Timeline

The Covid19 Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced last evening that Singapore will enter Phase 2 of its reopening on 19 June.

While many Singaporeans began rejoicing this Phase 2 announcement, The Workers' Party politican Bernard Chen Jiaxi eyed the Taskforce's decision more critically. Bernard Chen wrote in a Facebook post that Phase 2 was "nicely choreographed with the election in mind". He provided a suspected timeline for PAP to called for Parliament's dissolution.

GE2020: Did the Gov Open Phase 2 So They Can Hold Elections?

While many may rejoice at being able to resume their normal activities again, we need to question why the government is so eager to move into phase 2, especially after the 154 media keeps releasing new information about potential PAP candidates on the ground. So now that people are able to gather in groups of 5 albeit with social distancing, this means that it is not illegal for people to be out and about, which means that the PAP can start their door-to-door campaigning, meeting the electorate and start selling their koyok again.

Covid19: Workers' Party Gerald Giam Criticises PAP's Insistence To Implement TraceTogether

The Workers' Party politician Gerald Giam blogged about PAP's plans to roll out TraceTogether Tokens to all Singaporeans. If the PAP pushes its way through, an estimated 5.7 million residents in Singapore will be marked with a contact tracing device which will cost taxpayers over $100 million. However, TraceTogether has continually faced compatibility issues especially with iPhones. To overcome these issues, Apple and Google have developed their own contact tracing protocol called Exposure Notifications. While the PAP stubbornly insists on developing and implementing its TraceTogether project, at least 22 countries have now switched to using Exposure Notifications.
