GE2020: Lee Hsien Yang Says PAP Mishandled Covid19 Pandemic

Singaporeans will have to go out to vote on 10 July when they would have preferred to stay safe from the risk of getting COVID-19. Almost three months after lockdown began, new cases still remain stubbornly in the three-digit range, a result of the PAP’s poor handling of the pandemic. The resulting economic damage could have been avoided.

GE2020: Did the Gov Open Phase 2 So They Can Hold Elections?

While many may rejoice at being able to resume their normal activities again, we need to question why the government is so eager to move into phase 2, especially after the 154 media keeps releasing new information about potential PAP candidates on the ground. So now that people are able to gather in groups of 5 albeit with social distancing, this means that it is not illegal for people to be out and about, which means that the PAP can start their door-to-door campaigning, meeting the electorate and start selling their koyok again.

GE2020: Should S'pore Continue To Trust A PAP Team Without Foresight?

In his speech yesterday, PM Lee took credit for keeping the number of fatalities in Singapore low.

An international study conducted by Toluna and Blackbox Research found that many Singaporeans confidence in our political leaders are wavering and they are not impressed by the way they have handled the Covid19 pandemic. Only 41% of Singaporeans rated their leaders highly, which means that 59% of those polled rated them less than favourably.

This means that 66% of those polled were not surprised by the incompetence of the government.

Covid19: Covid-19 infecting all, except our dead hearts

Covid19: Covid-19 infecting all, except our dead hearts

I was extensively snooping around the Social Media arena to gauge the well-being of society as a whole under this Pandemic. What I found instead was sheer ugliness within the social fabric of this country. Under normal circumstances, these faults within our collective behavior would be easily overlooked, perceived as a normality rather than a disturbing phenomenon. But now, such acts of general societal disharmony have increased to an extent so shocking that it would place our status as a first world nation at serious scrutiny. Surely it is not much to ask people to refrain from treating service workers like a slave or even subhuman?
