SG TRANSPORT MINISTRY: NEW RM20 LEVY DISCRIMINATES AGAINST S'PORE VEHICLES, WE WILL HIT BACK

Singapore's Ministry of Transport has deemed the new RM20 or $6.60 levy on Singapore vehicles as discriminatory against Singapore vehicles. MOT said that it was biased against Singapore vehicles only as it only applied at land checkpoint with Singapore. MOT said that it will respond in kind and match the new levy towards Malaysian registered vehicles. Malaysia shares 10 other land checkpoints with Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei but only Singapore-registered vehicles are affected by the new levy.

In 2011, he became the first military domain expert (ME) to be raised to the rank of ME8 – equivalent to a Brigadier-General. He started his career as an air-force engineer in 1991.

GANGSTER LTA OFFICER THREATENED ME WITH FxxK WORD!

I calmly told him to talk nicely and don't have to be rude, instead he continued talking to me abusively along with his "fluent" vulgarities for the next 5mins or so. I was taken aback and told him to stop or I call the police for assistance. He finally stopped when I whipped out my handphone. He went back to his bike, continued uttering his vulgarity and rode off!

EX-SPY CHIEF: LUI TUCK YEW SHEDDING CROCODILE TEARS

Would not the Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew be shedding crocodile tears to show extreme concern now on both the North-South and East-West lines affected by the disruption? He could not now pretend that he was not aware of the inadequacies of Desmond Kuek whose credentials to helm the SMRT are highly flawed. He was an army general whose whole life experience had been in getting the army yes men to be in strict discipline. So what expertise could he have in running a complex SMRT which requires technological knowledge to run smoothly without disruption.
