THE FLAWED AGENDA OF THE OXLEY HOUSE MINISTERIAL COMMITTEE

I am troubled by the terms of reference for the Oxley House Ministerial Committee. It looks to me that this Committee may be serving a personal vendetta instead of the public interest. Let me explain. Has it been the Government's policy when considering the "public interest aspects of any property with heritage and historical significance", to give weight to the wishes of the property's deceased owner?

OPP POLITICIAN: EQUALLY SNEAKY THAT DEMOLITION CLAUSE WAS LEFT OUT OF OTHER WILLS

Opposition politician and lawyer Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss has her suspicions about the Demolition Clause in LKY's Last Will. She thinks it is equally sneaky that the clause was deleted in the 5th and 6th wills, and it was "fortunately" re-inserted into his Last Will. "Suggestions of sneakiness is mere personal opinion. It is certainly not unusual at all for anyone to make several wills, each time changing his mind according to his feelings and according to who's persuasions as he decided to follow.

Summing up the discussion, moderator and NSP member Ravi Philemon said "more flexibility should be given" to Singaporeans in deciding how to use their retirement funds in their later years. He also highlighted how several participants had questioned the need for increases in the Minimum Sum despite there not being a poverty baseline or a minimum wage in Singapore. "With no baseline or a minimum wage, there's not much clarity on how much an older citizen will need for his retirement needs," he said.

LTA refutes NSP’s criticism of new bus reliability improvement scheme

The Bus Service Reliability Framework (BSRF) trial is a first step towards addressing feedback from commuters on bus reliability and regularity, and commuter safety will also be of paramount concern, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA). The LTA was responding to a statement released by the National Solidarity Party (NSP) yesterday, which pointed out that commuters need more immediate solutions to public transport problems, but schemes such as the BSRF and the S$1.1 billion Bus Service Enhancement Programme have time frames of two years and five years respectively.
