GOVT ALWAYS THOUGHT PAKISTANI AND INDIAN MUSLIMS ARE MALAY ALSO

Government wants to reserve the President for a Malay, cos we have not had one for a long time. But by doing this, you are saying Malays cannot contest on their own merits. Govt must hand hold them, and let Malays challenge the not so Malays, and the winner would be a Malay. What kind of logic is that?

FINES AGAINST SMRT ARE USELESS, GIVE S’POREANS FREE TRAVEL INSTEAD

Any fine paid by SMRT goes effectively from one Government pocket to another, or as one person put it, from the pants pocket to the shirt pocket, so does not hurt the people ultimately responsible for the breakdown. A far better way of compensating the much put-upon commuter is by forcing SMRT to allow free public transport for a number of days. As Singaporeans have paid for their network through higher taxes and more austerity, the free travel should only be extended to those holding pink ICs and their immediate family.
