Progress Singapore Party is Our Only Cure for CECA Cancer!

Our country is sick, so much so that Singaporeans are underemployed, and under-represented in the top management, even in local companies. CECA has made matters worse, with many locals complaining about discriminatory hiring, and Indian nationals with non-accredited degrees taking PMET jobs from us. No opposition party has questioned the …

SingapoRediscover Vouchers. Boredom Buster or Funny Money?

$365 million. That is money better spent on food for people who are living paycheck to paycheck, or not even a paycheck at all ! Or slightly larger dorms for low wage migrant workers which won't flare up re-infection of the coronavirus. Between you and me, I would've preferred the $100 in the form of a national rebate to apologize to Singaporean adults for facing possibly the most stupid period in modern history.

GE2020: Ho Ching Sides With PAP New Candidate Ivan Lim

GE2020: Parties Given Sufficient Time Before Parliament Dissolved?

In a sudden national broadcast, PM Lee Hsien Loong announced on 23 June 4pm that he had advised President Halimah Yacob to dissolve Parliament. He gave excuses why the GE2020 should be called before April 2021, citing reasons like Covid19 and the threat of external uncertainties. This paves way for Singapore to see GE2020 Polling Day to be on 10 July. Given how political parties and candidates only had 5 days between 18 June and 23 June when Parliament is dissolved, it seems the PAP thinks that having a preparation time of less than a week is "sufficient".

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: Another Paper General Expected to be Parachuted into PAP

Just how many paper generals does the PAP need? Since Pinky's own entry into politics as a Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) scholar, the pattern of ownself select ownself has gone on and on and the number of paper generals in the party has been increasing. The latest addition to the "mix" is expected to be the country's first woman general (but not first woman paper general) Gan Siow Huang.

Is the 7-20 June Series of National Broadcasts a Series of PAP Rally Speeches?

Under normal circumstances, nobody really gives two shits about a PAP rallies. However, COVID-19 has made many Singaporeans start tuning in attentively to the Prime Minister's broadcasts. Seizing the opportunity, the PAP rolled out a series of "national broadcasts" about the post-covid-19 future from 7 to 20 June which looks suspiciously like an election rally schedule.

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.
