How Many Set Of Brakes Does The Government Need To Tackle COVID19?

How Many Set Of Brakes Does The Government Need To Tackle COVID19?

However, the PAP Government had failed to apply this only set of brakes. Instead, the PAP Government reacted to crises as how a doctor would treat a patient with infection by observing the patient's progress or regress before deciding on whether to enhance the medication or not. This means they did a gradual and systematic increase in the medication and its strength based on observation. This cannot be the way to prevent an importation of a viral outbreak that had turned pandemic.

Can Politics Of Fear Still Work In Singapore?

Can Politics Of Fear Still Work In Singapore?

In the past, they warned you that if you vote opposition, your estate's HDB upgrading will be delayed, you'll be in the back in the queue, they also threatened you with withdrawal of services - such as buses and kindergartens. They also alarmed you that voting opposition will mean rubbish piling 3 storeys high in your estate, investors will run away, "your women will become maids in other countries".

Government Calls For Social Distancing, But Schools Still Not Closed

Government Calls For Social Distancing, But Schools Still Not Closed

This also comes across as the government's conceited arrogance through its total disregard for how students and teachers will have to travel in crowded public transport to make their way to and from schools, and also while they are in school. Is this not a contradiction of the government's call for social distancing?

Power Resides With The People, Not Govt. But In SG, Power Resides With The Govt

Trade unions, representing hundreds of thousands of workers, are a threat and must be rendered toothless. Freedom of peaceful assembly, which can bring together, perhaps tens of thousands of people, to press forth a common interest, is a threat and must be curtailed.

Naming And Shaming Is Fine to Maintain Public Trust, But Only If Done By Govt

Naming And Shaming Is Fine to Maintain Public Trust, But Only If Done By Govt

And correcting these inaccuracies would involve naming the complainant, laying bare all her personal financial details, and even indicate that because her finances were so dire, the Government agency had to inform Singaporeans that the woman's daughter receives financial aid to continue with her tertiary education.

Government Warns Landlords Against Improper Eviction Of Home Tenants, As 30,000 PRCs Yet To Return To SG

Government Warns Landlords Against Improper Eviction Of Home Tenants, As 30,000 PRCs Yet To Return To SG

Most believe that the decision by landlords to evict tenants and why the government has issued warning against doing such things was because as Minister Josephine Teo said, there were still 30,000 PRCs work pass holders based in Singapore that has not returned back to Singapore ever since the virus broke out. So, any move to evict these high numbers would represent a huge problem of homelessness that the Government would not want to face.

$100 A Day Given To Quarantined For Wuhan Virus, Necessary Or Overkill?

$100 A Day Given To Quarantined For Wuhan Virus, Necessary Or Overkill?

Many Singaporeans are now asking whether this figure is an overkill for the government, as the money used will obviously be out of the tax payers pockets. While it makes sense for the self-employed to be compensated for being quarantined, especially the taxi drivers, delivery riders or any others whose income depends on how they go out and carry out their jobs, does it make sense for the those who are salaried employees to be compensated? While it can be argued that their employers would lose working hours due to those quarantined, is the $100 a day figure too high?

PAP Wants SGreans To Trust Them, But Do They Trust SGreans?

It is a well held believe of many Singaporeans that the Government does not trust its own citizens in interpreting data. Heck, the Government does not even trust Singaporeans to know what is fake news and what is not. Trust works both ways, but apparently, not for these 4G Leaders.

Opinion: Any Challenge On POFMA Should Be Done In Open Court, To Show Gov's Transparency

Opinion: Any Challenge On POFMA Should Be Done In Open Court, To Show Gov's Transparency

There is no reason to hold POFMA applications in Chambers. Conversely, there is every reason to have such applications heard in open court as a matter of public interest, especially, in light of the intentions and objectives of POFMA, particularly, as repeatedly assured by the Government, namely, to filter out fake news. The public is entitled to know why the subject information so classified as fake news is legitimately fake news, as opposed to being wrongfully so declared.
