He also said that there is a genuine sense among Singaporeans that this Bill can easily be abused in the wrong hands.

NETIZEN ASKS WHO IS THE SMARTEST & MOST CAPABLE MINISTER IN S'PORE

Probably a controversial question with all the government hate around here but well, you can't deny the SG government isnt pragmatic and capable in what they do. So just to be objective for once, which current minister do you think would probably be the most smartest, or capable, person in the government body right now? I'm just curious.

A CITIZEN'S EYE OPENING EXPERIENCE IN PARLIAMENT

As highly paid MPs and ministers, how seriously do they take their attendance and participation in Parliament, especially for a session where the PM calls for the MPs to actively debate about the possible abuses of organs of state? The MPs bow in the direction of the Speaker of Parliament when they enter and leave the chambers. Some will say what is more important is how they actually contribute in Parliament and represent the people.

LEONG SZE HIAN: IF OXLEY RD ACCUSATIONS ARE BASELESS, WHY SO MANY MINISTERS DEFENDING PM LEE?

If indeed, and since all the allegations are “baseless” with “no evidence” – why did so many members of Government take to social media and the mainstream media, to make their own counter “baseless” allegations with “no evidence”? Is it not below the dignity of the Government to resort to such tactics and actions?

Why did we consume so much of everything in the last two weeks or so, to damage Singapore’s reputation internationally, given that the allegations are “baseless” and with “no evidence”? Whilst allegations of conflicts of interest may be subjective – arguably, the actions of those alleged may be crystal clear!

HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER SAYS SORRY FOR IMPLYING MINISTERS ARE ONLY AFTER FINANCIAL WEALTH

Lawyer and death penalty critic Eugene Thuraisingam has apologised in court yesterday for making statements that were in contempt of court. He previously implied that ministers turn a blind eye to death penalty laws in Singapore because they are only after financial gains. His Facebook post was a response to Ridzuan's death sentence as the man was found guilty of trafficking heroin. The lawyer acknowledged his mistake and insisted nobody forced him to apologise.

DON'T JUST SAY MOTHERS MEANS A LOT, GOVT MUST SHOW THAT MOTHERS ARE SPECIAL

I refer to the article “Mothers are the pillars of our families, says PM Lee in Mother’s Day Facebook post” (Straits Times, May 14). It states that “”Mothers are the pillars of our families, with one of the toughest jobs of all. Nowadays they raise children, build careers, care for elderly parents, or even become the sole parent in a family.

While their roles and responsibilities have evolved, mothers’ unconditional love and support remain strong and steadfast. “Let’s celebrate our mothers’ contributions as leaders, caregivers, providers, and role models. Take time today, and everyday, to show your mum how much she means to you”. Other ministers such as Ong Ye Kung, Josephine Teo and Lawrence Wong also posted Mother’s Day greetings on their Facebook pages.”

MOTORCYCLE COE HITS RECORD HIGH, S'POREANS SQUEEZED BUT PAP WINS?

Do you know that high COE prices is one of the main generators of the $3.45b surplus for the PAP Government in 2016? And yet despite squeezing the man in the street with a range of taxes, it spends the least (17.9% of GDP) among developed countries? Why does a small island need so many ministers? Are we to accept the fact that despite being touted as "top talent" and paid millions, these ministers can't handle the full portfolio individually and need to split their work?
