Let's try to objectively understand the situation. 40% of people are unhappy with the current government due to certain policy that put them at a disadvantage. But let's also see what the opposition has done over the last 5 years. Objectively, both sides have faults, both sides have 'screwed up'. WP on the 'regional level', PAP on the 'national level'.Read More »
A SIZABLE OPPOSITION IN PARLIAMENT IS THE ONLY SAFEGUARD FOR S’PORE’S FUTURE
In December last year while speaking to his Party comrades at a People’s Action Party (PAP) event PM Lee Hsien Loong commenting on the opposition’s intent to act as checks and balances on the Government said “that for every one more ‘checker’ in parliament there will be one less doer, thinker and leader in the government to serve the nation and the people.”Read More »

MEDIA AND GOVT SHAMING OF S’POREANS ALLOWS FOREIGNERS TO LOOK DOWN ON US
Whenever foreigners misbehaves, Singaporeans must always self-reflect and think maybe we are wrong ...

WHY ELECTION 2015 AND NOT ELECTION 2016?
Surprise, surprise, LHL has finally admitted that the electoral boundaries review committee was formed two months back. I think this is easily the worst kept secret as you can see the sudden increase in activities by the PAP grassroots. This is also evident when the MOM has now u-turned and say that degrees from degree mills will be rejected. Just weeks ago, they stood firmly by their decision that experience is more important than “fake” degrees!! But what are the reasons for this supposedly strategic move by another “paper” general - LHL?Read More »

But pinpointing a person isn't good. "PM LHL XXXX XXXX XXX", "YOU ARENT LIKE YOUR FATHER", "SG IS GONNA FALL" all these comments of cursing and swearing, are really unforgivable, and actually to be honest, I actually feel sad for our PM.Read More »
ALFIAN SAAT: THE VICIOUS LYNCH MOB IS SORE AT AMOS YEE’S UNSHACKLED FREEDOM
Amos Yee did not apologise, has never apologised, for the video that he made. Nobody in Singapore should have the kind of freedom that Amos Yee so brazenly flaunted, just because he is not shackled to institutional wardens. It is an audacious taunt, an affront to all those who lead defeated lives of quiet compromise. It makes them sore, and it makes them vicious.Read More »
