LHL: WE MUST PREP S'PORE TO SURVIVE AS DEVELOPED COUNTRIES TURN "INWARD"

As the year draws to a close, it is a good time to take stock and prepare for challenges in the coming year and beyond.

Shared my thoughts at the PAP Party Conference this morning. Major changes are taking place in the world. They impact not just individual countries, but also the wider international order that Singapore depends on. Developed countries are turning inward, and becoming more nativist and protectionist. This trend will have serious consequences for small, open countries like Singapore.

SINGAPOREANS HAVE LOST SO MUCH BUT STILL BLINDLY IGNORANT ABOUT IT

Blaming the Opposition is such a convenient excuse because it cuts brain activities. What policies? Who cares about policies isn't it? I find Singapore's level of ignorance at a dangerous low because we do not have an independent and neutral media that promotes critical analysis. I have always maintained that people who read States Times Review require a level of sophistication, otherwise, my articles are really not for you.

5 POLICIES FROM WP MANIFESTO THAT WILL MAKE SINGAPORE A BETTER PLACE

WP believes that the best way to integrate immigrants is through the family unit and not through importing foreign labour who have no roots in Singapore. Singaporeans with a non-citizen spouse often face disruptions to their family life which creates stress and anxiety for the child when they have to separate from one parent who is on a short-term visit pass. Giving foreign spouses priority for citizenship after 5 years on the long-term visit pass will help alleviate the situation for this group of people.

EX-GOVERNMENT SCHOLAR: I CAN NO LONGER DEFEND THE PAP GOVERNMENT

For most of my life and career, I have defended the government and the civil service. Even today, I will defend some of my friends within the NLB, whom I know did not agree with the final decision, but had no choice but to comply with the line taken by senior management. But this, I have found, is truly indefensible. This government I have defended, even when I did not agree with its policies and actions, has crossed a red line. It has lost my vote today, but worst of all, I think it has lost my faith.

Good communications cannot substitute for bad policies

The govt seems to be putting the blame on bad communications as the source of unhappiness in the people. Is that so? The MSM also have been regurgitating that it was bad communications that have resulted in angry voices heard. The assumption is that policies are good and it was all because they were not well articulated to the people that is causing all the problems. It sounds more like the craftsman blaming his tools.
