GE2020: Tin Pei Ling Kpkb About Doctored Banner Again

As if one police report was not enough, Kate Spade princess Tin Pei Ling made a second police report about the doctored Chinese New Year banner apparently because it started circulating again. Mind you, it was a CNY banner so that was half a year ago since the first report. How coincidental that she is making a police report when elections is just around the corner.

GE2020: Is Tan Wu Meng So Desperate To Win That He Has To Resort To Playing Racial Politics?

"This man grew up in Singapore. Singapore gave him his education and he earns a living here. An education and a living that is denied to many minorities in the region." Somehow Tan seems to be insinuating that Alfian, as a minority, should be grateful for having been done the special favour of receiving an education from the benevolent majority, as if Singaporean minorities need the goodwill of the benevolent majority to be given an education, as if that goodwill is contingent on Singaporean minorities being subservient and toeing the line.

GE2020: Smear Campaign Started Against Pritam Singh And Alfian Sa’at

With the General Elections being called soon, it appears that the PAP has started smear campaigns against opposition party members. During the Budget debate on 5 June, Pritam Singh said Singapore should be fortunate that we have citizens who are “loving critics”. Even though Pritam Singh did not name any specific person, Tan Wu Meng inferred that Pritam Singh had spoken in support of Alfian Sa'at. Tan Wu Meng then took this opportunity to smear Pritam Singh who had supposedly voiced support for Alfian Sa'at. Tan Wu Meng asked if Pritam Singh still thinks Alfian Sa'at is a "loving critic" of Singapore based on selected screenshots of Alfian's comments, and went a step further to accuse Pritam Singh of being a "loving critic" himself if he supports Alfian.

Covid19: Basic Maths For Budget Planning 101

A contributor has shared some interesting calculations for Budget 2020. In Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat's round-up speech on debate on the Fortitude Budget in Parliament, he revealed that Singapore is "committing almost $100 billion, or close to 20 per cent of our GDP, to our Covid-19 response". Once the PAP increases GST from 7% to 9%, our contributor estimates this should bring in an estimated extra 0.7% GDP per year. So in order to cover the money spent on the Special $100 billion Covid19 Budgets, our contributor suggests that the government will need around 28.5 years to claw back this amount. Could this mean that the PAP has a lot of extra in our reserve and they don't really need the extra 2% GST to begin with?

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 ?
