DR CHEE: BY ALL MEANS LET'S CONTINUE TO HUMILIATE OUR MINORITIES

THE SAGA OVER the Elected Presidency (EP) has again, thanks to the Prime Minister, dredged up the hideous truth that our political system is indefensibly undergirded by racialist and racist thinking. The official line of the EP rhapsodised about the need for racial harmony and the safeguarding of multiculturalism. The truth, as everyone else who is not a party apparatchik knows, was about ensuring that only the most PAP-aligned of souls helmed the presidency.

ELECTED PRESIDENCY IS A JOKE & TWISTED SCHEME TO BAN NON-ELITES FROM QUALIFYING

If the govt wins 70% of the popular vote, while the president won only 35%, who would have the more legitimate claim to possessing the moral authority to act on citizens' behalf?

Why should a president who only had 35% support possess power to check on a govt elected by 70% of the people?

With the changes, the Elected President scheme has become a bit of a joke, really. It is nothing more than an Ivory Tower club reserved only for selected elites who twist and turn the scheme in such contortions that it has banned everyone else, except the very elite of the elites, from qualifying.

In short, it has no relevance to the average citizen at all.

TIME TO SHAME VANDALS OF BIKE SHARING SCHEME ONLINE

Photos showing the bikes being chained outside HDB units, thrown into canals, and even a case of a bike being repainted so the user can claim it as his own have emerged via social media. Thus, how are we going to benefit from such schemes? True, the bad apples may only represent a minority of the users, but as long as vandalism and abuse occurs, there is very little chance for the scheme to actually take off big time.

Sad fact is, bad apples are everywhere. They will vandalise and abuse the system, without thought for others. So, instead of social media showing the aftermath of these vandalised bikes, maybe it is time we show the face of the vandals themselves?
