GOVT IN ALL SORTS OF TROUBLE DUE TO BAD KARMA!

Until PM Lee "sets thing right" by: Commencing an Independent query like AHTC, Replace the 2 AGs, MND and Law Minister who made boo boos resulting in today's situation and challenging his 2 siblings in Court to demonstrate that truly no one is above the law! Otherwise, by closing this serious issue prematurely with sheer numbers will only cause Singapore's stature to be diminished and the PAP candidates, unable to "lift their heads up high".

MINISTERS GO ALL OUT TO DEFEND BIG BROTHER LOONG

And as expected, while the whip was conveniently lifted for PAP MPs to question their boss in Parliament on the Oxley Road saga, no one from PAP did that so far. In fact, DPM Teo followed up PM Lee's statement with his own statement, followed by Minister for National Development Lawrence Wong also addressing Parliament. Instead of questioning PM Lee on this issue, they went all guns blazing defending the Saga in PM Lee's favour. In fact, they cast further questions on the integrity of Lee Hsien Yang and Dr Lee Wei Ling. In fact, they painted the picture that the allegations made by the siblings are all baseless, that all of the Ministers have acted in accordance to what is accepted, and they had kept the siblings in the loop on all the matter that they have decided on the matter. So, what is this Parliamentary sitting about? To elaborate more on the issue at hand about Oxley Road, or to defend PM Lee, sings his merits, and paint his siblings as the villains? The way the Ministers are defending their boss, it would seem so.

ALL 6 QUESTIONS ON OXLEY ROAD FOR PARLIAMENT TODAY FILED BY WP

I refer to the article “5 things to look out for in the July 3 Parliament debate on the Oxley Road dispute” (Straits Times, Jul 3). It states that “MPs, elected and nominated and from both sides of the House, have filed questions on the issue and have indicated that they will speak during the session.”

LEE HSIEN YANG: MY BROTHER WILL WHITEWASH HIMSELF IN PARLIAMENT, ITS ABUSE OF HIS POWER

We have serious concerns with Lee Hsien Loong’s attempt to cover-up and whitewash himself in Parliament on 3 July 2017. We have begun to show evidence of his misuse of his position and influence to drive his personal agenda. This is yet another example. This Parliamentary session is a forum that again places Hsien Loong before his subordinates. They lack both sufficient background and evidence of the numerous instances of abuse and conflicts of interest, many yet to be raised.

PRITAM SINGH TELLS PM LEE TO ALLOW LEE HSIEN YANG AIRTIME IN PARLIAMENT TO BE FAIR

In the interests of fairness, Mr Lee should be allowed to tell his story to Parliament too. A Select Committee would allow MPs the opportunity to call up any witness, including the Prime Minister or anyone else to get to the truth of the matter behind the allegations of abuse of power. By way of a parliamentary question, I have asked the Prime Minister to support the setting up of a Select Committee to look into the serious allegations made against him. The use of Select Committees for such a purpose is nothing new. The PAP have used Select Committees to look into allegations made against the Government in the past.

38 OXLEY ROAD PARLIAMENTARY ENQUIRY JUST ANOTHER WAYANG?

PM said he'll lift the whip only for the upcoming Parliament session on 3 Jul and furthermore, asked all MPs to be sure of raising any and all queries on BEHALF of their constituents. Problem is, how are the various MPs going to know what to ask Cabinet if there's been no Public Consultation Exercises similar to the one held for the Our Singapore Conversation with all Citizens?

PPL SHLD PRESSURISE THEIR MP TO CONVENE AN INQUIRY INTO LEE FAMILY DISPUTE

A concerned citizen hoped for Singaporeans, especially residents of Aljunied GRC and Hougang should pressurise their MPs to convene an independent inquiry into the Lee family dispute. "This was also done previously when the late honorable JBJ had launched accusations against LKY both inside and outside of Parliament." He fears that if this is not done, it will have serious implications for Singapore as we may be exploited by other countries.

WORKERS PARTY: LHL SHOULD TAKE LONGER LEAVE & OPEN INDEPENDENT INQUIRY

Workers' Party's Chen Jiaxi Bernard suggested for PM Lee to take a leave of absence and assign an independent committee to look into the Lee family allegations. "This is not about how much Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang has/ has not contributed to Singapore. This is about what Lee Hsien Loong had allegedly done. And he has to be accountable to our institutions, as well as the very people who have given him the mandate to govern... We need an independent inquiry. Prime Minister Lee, if you really mean what you say and represents all that you said your party represents, please take a leave of absence and appoint an independent committee to look into the allegations. It is now more than urgent that Parliament convenes and appoint an independent ombudsman. More than ever, moving forward we need an independent parliamentary ombudsman."

RESERVED PRESIDENCY IS CONDESCENDING, SHOWS MALAYS ARE “USED ONLY WHEN NEEDED”

Khan Osman Sulaiman talks about the upcoming Presidential Election and highlighted some of its problems. He thinks it is condescending to reserve the election for Malays as it shows that they cannot stand on their own merits. "It places the Malay community as a pawn in a chess game. To be used only when needed". He said the reserved presidency with its strict conditions is only for the elitist and described the President position as a lame duck.

IMPROVEMENTS IN BEDOK AFTER NCMP DENNIS TAN FIGHTS FOR THEM IN PARLIAMENT

Kudos to NCMP Dennis Tan Lip Fong for suggesting to build a better footpath for Bedok residents! Earlier, he raised the issue in Parliament to Minister Ng Chee Meng to widen the footpath along Bedok North Avenue 4. He proposed the idea after seeing that there are many pedestrians, cyclists and e-scooters there and saw the need to make things convenient for residents. The improvement works, which have recently started, will include the area opposite St Anthony's Canossian Secondary School and Fengshan SMC. If completed, the footpath will be at least 2 times wider and will definitely add to a safer environment.
