WP Yee Jenn Jong Counters Chan Chun Sing's Opinions On Construction Sector

Minister of Trade and Industry (MTI) Chan Chun Sing recently responded to media questions about the over-reliance on foreign construction workers. To replace this 300,000 foreign workforce, he argued that Singapore will need 2,500 local babies per year over the next 40 years to become construction workers. His challenge was based on the assumption that 100,000 Singaporean workers will be three times as productive as these foreign labour. Just today, the Workers' Party Yee Jenn Jong wrote a blog post to counter Chan Chun Sing's opinion.

Ironic That Fate Of Grand Prix Can Be Decided Sooner Than Announcement Of General Election Rules

Ironic That Fate Of Grand Prix Can Be Decided Sooner Than Announcement Of General Election Rules

Due to this "urgency" to call for an elections, the Workers' Party (WP) called for the government to "publish election campaign rules forthwidth" so that all political parties have a clear idea of how they can campaign safely despite the ongoing Covid19 pandemic. However, the same MTI minister Chan Chun Sing excused the Elections Department (ELD) saying that they have to explore various scenarios and rules due to the "evolving" Covid19 situation. When the ELD is ready, election candidates and parties will be given "sufficient time" to know the rules and regulations. If the GE is to be held on July 2020, does it seem ironic that the fate of the Grand Prix (which will be held later in September 2020) can be decided earlier than the announcement of GE campaign rules?

With this sudden increase of cases on Italy and South Korea, there were also reports that the towns in these two countries that were badly affected have seen the residents panic buying in supermarket, causing essential items to basically run out. So,based on our Ah Beng Minister Chan Chun Sing, these people in South Korea and Italy should be called idiots too? After all, they are panic buying, just the same as people in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Chan Chun Sing Claims He Is A Straight Talker, But Is He Really One?

Chan Chun Sing Claims He Is A Straight Talker, But Is He Really One?

And did he spend time and effort to understand Singaporeans and the challenges they faced? It is one thing if a hard-nosed politician does not mince his words; and it is something absolutely incomparable when politicians use words such as "idiots" on people. The latter not only shows a lack of vocabulary and character, but it also shows he sees the people in the limited way in which his mind identifies them with himself.

Straight Talking Minister, Good For Singapore, Or Just A Lousy Excuse?

Straight Talking Minister, Good For Singapore, Or Just A Lousy Excuse?

But remember: you are only a straight-talker when you speak the same way even when you know the whole world is listening. You can't claim to be a straight-talker when your colleague walks out of a cubicle after you bitch about him if you have been acting chummy with him all this while.

Why Are There People Who Still Thinks Chan Chun Sing Said Nothing Wrong In His Ah Beng Speech?

Why Are There People Who Still Thinks Chan Chun Sing Said Nothing Wrong In His Ah Beng Speech?

In fact, the way he spoke was more akin to an Army commander talking down to his lowly ranked men, who has no choice but to listen to his ranting and nod their heads in silence. This was no way a Minister, even in a closed door event, should be carrying himself. Certainly not in a Singlish heavy rant, which not only brings shame upon himself, but to Singapore in general. After all, wasn't his PAP party the one that started the campaign for Singaporeans to speak proper English, and banish Singlish to the dustbins. This would be another failed PAP initiative then, when one of their own top Minister cannot remove himself from his Singlish.
