Gerald Giam: MSM Focus On Victim And Pushing Blame To NUS Wrong On So Many Levels

Gerald Giam: MSM Focus On Victim And Pushing Blame To NUS Wrong On So Many Levels

Giam also took offence on how the local media keep their focus on the victim, so much so that the victim's name and photos are splashed everywhere, and that everyone knows that it was her who was filmed showering, but yet the name of the perpetrator is not mentioned and his photos are not splashed in the papers. He ended his post by saying "This is wrong on so many levels"

PAP OPENLY ADVERTISE BENEFITS FOR RC MEMBERS, OWNSELF REWARD OWNSELF!

Gerald Giam from the Workers Party (WP) spotted this door pamphlet during his rounds in his ward and decided to show just what kind of tricks the WP has to deal with from the incumbent People's Action Party (PAP). According to the pamphlet, the PAP is looking for Residents Committee volunteers and openly advertised some major benefits for those who do join. They include priority queue for Ministry of Education primary school registration exercises, Ministry of National Development Grassroots Organization Scheme, HDB Special Parking Label and free education courses.

GERALD GIAM: YOUTH MUST SPOT POLITICAL INTENTIONS OF POLICY CHANGES

Had a very exciting discussion on Sunday on the proposed changes to the Elected Presidency scheme with a group of young people - poly and uni students and recent grads - at WP Youth Wing's monthly "Youth Hangouts". Participants shared their frank yet sensible views on this hot button issue.

MINISTER LIM REFUSED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ON RETRENCHMENT BREAKDOWN

Despite being confronted by Mr Giam’s questions in Parliament, Minister Lim chose to continue to evade giving any direct replies. The Minister can avoid answering just one question on the breakdown of the retrenched residents. Can he possibly avoid answering altogether the following six questions on the labour statistics? In the unlikely event that the Minister cannot answer all six questions at all – then what answer to you think Singaporeans may like to give to him?

GERALD GIAM: I PREFER THE LEASE BUYBACK SCHEME TO APPLY TO ALL TYPES OF FLATS

It is good that the Lease Buyback Scheme (LBS) has been extended to 4-room flats. The LBS has not seen a very good take up rate so far, in large part because it was restricted to only 3-room or smaller flats. But as I had stated in my 2012 Budget debate speech, I would prefer for LBS to be extended to all flat sizes. This will help more elderly folks monetise their flats without having to sell and move out of their flats, which many of them attach a lot of sentimental value to.

Gerald Giam: Robust debates can help shape better policies

I will continue to join my Workers’ Party colleagues to contribute constructively to debates on issues that matter to Singaporeans. If we assess that a policy will go against Singaporeans’ interests, we will oppose it and where possible, propose alternatives. If the policy is good for our country, we will support the Government for the benefit of our people. This is how we play the role of a constructive opposition. Madam, I support the motion to thank the President.

NMP Gerald Giam should not accept Health Minister’s nonsensical reply

Public hospitals should not admit foreign patients and deprive Singaporeans of hospital beds. Period. Gan should have simply admitted that Singaporeans should be given priority, agree to channel all invited foreign patients to private hospitals in future, learn from whatever mistakes and move on. Gan shouldn’t try to save face, beat around the bush and try to wriggle out of a mistake. Singaporeans are by and large a forgiving lot and we are really not dumb.
