These issues identified will either compromise the governance of these organisations or involved questions on how millions of taxpayers money are spent. But, was anything other than hand slapping done by the government? Was there any decisive action taken, such as the one where Parliament unanimously voted for the WP MPs to be recused from AHTC's financial decision making?

Jewel, PM Lee's Symbol Of Bold Dreams, Is Now A Failing Project Just A Few Months On

Jewel, PM Lee's Symbol Of Bold Dreams, Is Now A Failing Project Just A Few Months On

It does seem like another failed project from the very people who are tasked with making Singapore successful. PM Lee and his bevy of civil servants will point to the thousands who still flock to Jewel everyday, but if this thousands of people do not spend their cash there, it is as good as a failure. After all, what good is a crowd if all they do is just take photos to be posted on their social media accounts, but keep their wallets firmly locked in their pocket.

Many Singaporeans question the timing of this new Law, indicating that if this was to be passed into Law, it should not be parachuted in immediately for the next election, but instead should be carried out for the next one. Many also questioned if the hurried nature of the Reserved Presidency Election was to stop Tan Cheng Bock from contesting, as he had been widely tipped to run for the President, and most said that he could have won.

Ah Loong Says Bond Between PAP And NTUC Needs To Be Strengthened, Current Bond Not Enough

Note how the speech comes at a time when Singapore's General Election draws ever nearer, and also how he did not subtly try to hide his words. He said the PAP and NTUC to work together, not NTUC to work with the Singapore government, with opposition and all. So, he has gone all out to ask NTUC to work with a specific political party, thus bringing in partisan politics to a Trade Union.
