INDRANEE RAJAH: LKY CONTEMPLATED DEMOLITION NOT ONLY OPTION

Her first point was that the most relevant part of LKY's will was paragraph 7, where he expressed his desire to have the house demolished after his death or when Lee Wei Ling decides not to stay there anymore. However. LKY stated that if his wish for the house to be demolished not be met, his wish was for the house not be opened to others except his children and descendants. The second point was that the Oxley Road house is no longer a private matter, as it is closely bound up in the history of Singapore. Singaporeans understand the historical significance of the site as 38 Oxley Road is not just any old piece of property, but is intertwined with the history of the nation. As such, whatever happens to the house is of public interest, and that is why the Government is intervening.

Her third point was that PM Lee has taken himself out of the equation for any decisions made on the house, due to the conflict of interest. He has recused himself from taking part in any Government consideration or decisions regarding 38 Oxley Road. And the final, most important point is that nothing can be done to the house right now, be it to demolish it or to preserve it. This is for the simple reason that Dr Lee Wei Ling is still living there.

21 REASONS WHY THARMAN'S CALL FOR CONFIDENCE IN PAP IS MISPLACED

In his Facebook post, DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam called on Singaporeans to “have confidence” in the present system of governance, adding, “You can count on PM Lee Hsien Loong and all of us in his team for that.” To have confidence in the government, Singaporeans need transparency. So before the DPM asks for trust in Mr Lee Hsien Loong's team, the PAP must first account for and explain:

WHY IS THE S'PORE OPPOSITION SO FRACTURED & PAP SO DOMINANT?

Given the almost complete dominance of the PAP in both parliament and at the voting booth, It's strange to see how fractured opposition parties are with there being at least 3 major parties that only form electoral alliances to prevent them from losing their deposit. What are the major differences between the WP, SDP, SPP, SingFirst etc? Why hasn't the PAP split into more parties in recent history?

YPAP MEMBER QUESTIONS BLIND OBEDIENCE OF FELLOW PAP MEMBERS IN LEE FAMILY FEUD

My point is this - I do not believe in blind obedience. This is not a wild allegation made by some fringe group, but by the Prime Minister's siblings, who are high-profile individuals. It is therefore not disloyal to ask questions and seek answers on the issue. If the Party leadership believes that by raising these questions, I am disloyal to the Party, it is always open to them to expel me. But I choose to believe that they are more progressive, intelligent and thoughtful than that. Making threats against me on the other hand, is not only disgraceful, but, given the circumstances, painfully ironic.

HDB SAYS WE ARE NOT HOUSE OWNERS, ONLY "LESSEES"

HDB flat buyers have been taken for a very long ride and most are afraid to face the fact that none of us is an owner. PAP politicians who keep trumpeting our second highest home ownership rate in the world are in fact lying. HDB has already confirmed ‘owners’ are merely ‘lessees’ on its website, in line with Singapore statutes. The fact that we can’t mortgage HDB flats which we are supposed to own should have convinced flat buyers that we are not owners. PAP politicians are able to use ‘owners’ loosely in the media to impress upon Singaporeans that we do own public housing. This is not some half truth but a lie. To date, not a single minister has categorically stated that HDB flat buyers are not lessees. HDB flat buyers have been had and it’s about time the delusional majority wake up to the lessee nightmare: we are not owners of HDB flats.

NOT ENOUGH JOBS FOR DEGREE HOLDERS, WE HAVE BEEN TRICKED BY THE GOVT

There's something I want to tell everyone. You're being gaslighted by the PAP. Getting a degree gets you a pay level that's supposed to be acceptable, but now it's no longer so. The truth is there're not enough jobs to go around for degree grads who are expecting degree level pay, even entry pay like 3k a month.

So the government tells you to either upgrade or no need to study degree because it's unnecessary. So the degree is unnecessary, because the truth is there're not enough jobs to go around for you and if you do not have a degree, you wouldn't have expectations of a degree level pay. Basically, you've done all you need for basic achievement in life but you are being punished for being inefficient simply because your government is blaming the failure of the system on you, and not themselves.

GOH MENG SENG: JOIN US & SUPPORT TAN CHENG BOCK'S CONSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGE!

Lim Tean, Tan Kin Lian, Syafarin Sarif and I had started the initiative to publish a Non-Partisan Joint Statement in support of Dr Tan Cheng Bock's challenge of the Constitutional change to enforce Reserved Elected Presidency based on dubious grounds.

We have come together as a group of concerned Singaporeans, from diverse walks in life and from a wide political spectrum, to ask Singaporeans to stand up and to protect our Constitution from constant manipulation by the PAP government to suit their selfish political needs.

We are pleased to note that Dr Tan Cheng Bock has mounted a judicial challenge to the constitutionality of the next Presidential Election being a reserved election. Even if it is now the law that there must be a reserved election for a particular racial group if no one from that group has been President after 5 continuous terms, it is clear to everyone of us that only the Presidential election of 2023 need be a reserved election. The next Presidential election in September this year should be an open election as there have been only 4 elected Presidents since the Elected Presidency scheme came into effect, with Mr Ong Teng Cheong being our first elected President. We do not know of any ordinary Singaporean who has taken an opposing view.

Since the PAP Government insists that the upcoming Presidential election is a reserved election under the Presidential Elections (Amendment) Act 2017, the burden was on them to explain to the Singapore people the basis of their decision. It was incumbent upon them to produce the advice which they said they had obtained from the Attorney-General, which formed the basis of their decision. This is no different to a judge having to give his reasons for a decision made by him. It was important for the Government to have made known the reasoning behind the Attorney-General’s advice because the Attorney-General’s advice does not constitute the law of the land and is open to challenge by way of Judicial Review.
