Only 4? Why not give the statistics? Instead of just citing four persons from the entire civil service – we should give the statistics as to what percentage of non-graduates have made it to senior positions. What % of non-Division I officers in Division I appointments? As to “As of 2013, 56 per cent of the 80,000 civil servants were in Division I. About one-third were in Division II, and 7 per cent and 5 per cent in Divisions III and IV respectively” – since we are able to breakdown such statistics – surely we can give more detailed statistics in this regard. For example, what percentage of Division II, III and IV officers were able to make it to what were typically appointments filled by Division I officers? What percentage were promoted to higher appointments?Read More »

INHERITANCE CLAIMS IN S’PORE ARE OPAQUE AND BADLY MISMANAGED!
However, I was shocked to learn that my late father's devious sisters who were non-muslims, had obtained a district court order laying hands on $150,000 of my late father's assets from NTUC Income and Prudential! I later found out they had falsely declared to the police and court that my late father had no other surviving kin and they would like his estates to be distributed under civil law.Read More »
LAZY S’POREAN CIVIL SERVANTS OFFLOADING WORK TO CONTRACT STAFF
Some Singapore civils service agencies like IRAS, NEA has adopted an approach to offload work to contract staff while their full-time members sit back and relax. This should be absolutely condoned as these full time staff are paid much more than contract staff. I urge people looking for a job not to take up these jobs as these are exploitative In nature and u are being used by complacent lazy civil servants to exploit u . Singapore has maintained a policy of paying people who do more work or complicated work more , not the other way round.Read More »
RECIVIDISM 9 YEAR HIGH: GOVT HIRE EX-OFFENDERS?
I refer to the article “‘The Govt should start hiring ex-offenders themselves’: Benny Se Teo” (Channel NewsAsia, Oct 17). It states that “”In my lifetime, I will never be able to see Singapore society really helping ex-offenders, hiring them, helping them integrate, giving them a chance,” Mr Se Teo told 938LIVE’s On The Record on Friday (Oct 16). “The Government should come out and start the ball rolling by hiring ex-offenders themselves.”"Read More »
S’PORE CIVIL SERVICE GETTING CARELESS & INCOMPETENT
Singapore's civil service is really getting very careless under PAP rule. First, there was a series of typo errors in the spelling of our late President's name. This is so unbecoming. If we cannot count on our civil service to get these tiny details correct, I wonder what other mistakes have they been making in the running of our country?Read More »
COMPETENT NO MORE, YET ANOTHER INTOLERABLE MISTAKE BY GOVT AGENCIES
Once again, another stupid and intolerable mistake from the government agencies; this time – a misspelling on our beloved first president’s name in the once in 50 years commemorative notes. Again and again, we have noticed cracks in the service quality from our government agencies over the last 10 years, this is a worrying sign on the deteriorating performance of the ruling party and the civil servants.Read More »
RETIRED POLICE: PM LEE, DO THE RIGHT THING AND GET TOUGH ON CIVIL SERVANTS
Your late father LKY laid down working rules that were followed to the hilt by every civil servant. His approach to departmental rules were exemplary for he came down hard, fast and furious on malpractices and corruption. None was above those rules. Every department of the Civil Service worked under fear and without favour.Read More »

RETIRED CIVIL SERVANT: IT IS UNFAIR TO ISSUE SG50 BONUS TO NON-SINGAPOREAN CIVIL SERVANTS!
Let me give you an analogy, in a 4 x 4 relay race, do you only reward the last lap runner or all 4 runners? To add insult to former civil servants, there are thousands of foreigners in the public sector, notably within MOE. Do these foreigners deserve our SG50 $500 bonus?Read More »
