SG SUFFERING FROM DIPLOMATIC ISSUES AS OUR LEADERS LACK DIPLOMATIC SKILLS

I have confided to some people about the great challenge we will face in the near future due to tension at Taiwan Strait as well as South China Sea. Especially South China Sea issue is extremely delicate and important to us as a trading port. I was very concerned that PAP under PM Lee would just screw it up badly. A small country like Singapore depends on great Diplomacy and Trade for survival. If our political leaders lack diplomatic skills, we will suffer very badly.

Just two years after the passing of LKY, it is unfortunate that my very deep down fear and concern came true. PM Lee, for all his life living enclosed in a palace fed with a golden spoon, does not seem to know how to handle human relationship, lest Diplomacy. Unlike his father who was basically a political street fighter, PM Lee lacks that realistic exposure to understand the importance of the nuance in diplomacy.

DON'T JUST SAY MOTHERS MEANS A LOT, GOVT MUST SHOW THAT MOTHERS ARE SPECIAL

I refer to the article “Mothers are the pillars of our families, says PM Lee in Mother’s Day Facebook post” (Straits Times, May 14). It states that “”Mothers are the pillars of our families, with one of the toughest jobs of all. Nowadays they raise children, build careers, care for elderly parents, or even become the sole parent in a family.

While their roles and responsibilities have evolved, mothers’ unconditional love and support remain strong and steadfast. “Let’s celebrate our mothers’ contributions as leaders, caregivers, providers, and role models. Take time today, and everyday, to show your mum how much she means to you”. Other ministers such as Ong Ye Kung, Josephine Teo and Lawrence Wong also posted Mother’s Day greetings on their Facebook pages.”

RACE AND RELIGION ISSUES TO BE KEPT AWAY FROM PUBLIC EYE. GOVT WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO DO

Now, everyone will be talking about this, everyone will have their own opinions, everyone will have their own camps, be it WP or the Government. At the end of the day, it is not who is right, or who is wrong in the exchange in Parliament yesterday. It is about the general public now waking up again to race and religion issues, thanks to the very exchange in Parliament. You make a mountain out of a molehill, now it becomes a monster that will be hard to keep down. Well done!

So, the narrative is the same. All issues that government not comfortable with the public discussing, or the government have no ready answers with, keep them away from public. Government will tell you all what to do, and you do. No questions asked.

PM LEE CALLS FOR STRENGTHENING OF COMMUNITY BONDS, DO THEY EXIST IN THE FIRST PLACE?

PM Lee suggested during the Emergency Preparedness Day at Teck Ghee yesterday that Singapore should strengthen community bonds, in order for terrorism threat to be flushed out. Agreed that this is the best way we can combat terrorism.

But, do community bonds still exists amongst residents? Maybe the older estates, where neighbours might have known each other for all their lives, these community bonds are strong. What about the newer estates? Places like Sengkang, Punggol?

PM LEE SAID LEADERS MUST BE OPEN TO VIEWS FROM OTHERS. HAHAHA!

PM Lee making us all laugh early this morning. In that sense, he is a terrific PM for Singapore, he knows we all facing Monday Blues, so he is doing his best to help us all laugh to work this Monday morning.

He said leaders must remain open to other views, and also important for leaders to not be surrounded by "yes men" who paint only a positive picture. He might say these things, but actually, who in his cabinet listening to him? Most of them are Yes Men in the first place, for them to get to where they are now. Of course, nobody will admit they are Yes Men, so let's just humour them and say they got to where they are through sheer hard work.

PPP PROTESTS ISRAELI PM VISIT TO SG, URGED PM LEE TO REVIEW RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL

PM Lee Hsien Loong should seriously review its relationship with Israel. We hold the innate view that Singapore should continue its neutrality, befitting to humanistic principles, towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict without the need to break existing bilateral ties with the State of Israel. On that note, we applaud our government’s effort and diplomatic engagement in finding ways to seek a peaceful resolution to the ongoing Palestinian occupation. We acknowledge our relationship with Israel spanned from the time our armed forces was in its foundation stage. However, we should not turn a blind eye to Israel’s unacceptable conduct and stance with regards to its Palestinian Occupation.

NEVER FORGET OUR PAST, SO LET'S GLORIFY SYONAN

We cannot change the fact that Singapore fell to the Japanese, Singapore endured many years of hardship and fear under the Japanese rule, and of course, Singapore even lost its name. PM Lee said that Singapore will always be small and vulnerable, and no one owes us our sovereignty or security. These are truths we must never forget. Again, all true, But to glorify the name Syonan as your name of the brand new museum? We shall not forget the past, but do we need to glorify the painful past? Maybe now we should also name a part of Changi or one of Changi's roads after Yamashita?

PM LEE CHINESE NEW YEAR MESSAGE 2017

My fellow Singaporeans

Lunar New Year is a special and joyous time of celebration. Tonight, across Singapore, Chinese families are enjoying reunion dinners with loved ones. In the coming days, we will visit one another’s homes to exchange New Year greetings. Over delectable snacks and yusheng, we will catch up with family and friends, especially those we have not seen for a while. Many non-Chinese too join the festivities, visiting Chinese friends and enjoying the holiday.
