GOVT MUST RECOVER LOST FUNDS FROM CO-OP CHEATS, DON'T JUST KEEP QUIET!

A netizen thinks the Government should speak up and account to the public how it plans to recover lost funds from the Co-op cheat case. Two employees reportedly cheated their co-op of $5.1m. "It would be most irresponsible and unprofessional of them if they simply ignore such valid concerns from members of the public or simply sweep it under the carpet!"

EX-NMP CALVIN CHENG: GVT SHOULD NOT BE FUNDING ART, LEAVE THAT TO PRIVATE DONORS

Ex-NMP Calvin Cheng thinks that the Government should stay out of making decisions on whether they should be funding art. This is especially since the government will receive backlash anyway - if it wants to fund, it has to come up with strict criteria but if it does not fund, it will be accused of censorship. What do you think?

FOREIGN ENTITIES APPEAL TO SUPPORT PINK DOT, OUTRIGHTLY REJECTED BY AUTHORITIES

A group of foreign companies such as Facebook, Google and Uber wrote in to Singapore authorities to ask for permission to support this year's Pink Dot but were unfortunately rejected. In their letter, the group of companies expressed support for inclusivity, diversity and in creating a safe space for their employees to work in. They understand Singapore has its own regulations and already suggested not to have their names listed or recognised as official sponsors. They also assured that no foreign representatives will speak at the event. However, our authorities still flat out rejected their application to support the event.

Instead of explaining why they rejected the application, the authorities reiterated that foreign entities must abide by our laws and not fund or support events that concern our domestic matters. Do you think this is necessary to make Pink Dot free from "foreign intervention"?
