Govt's Standard SOP For Mistakes, Leader Says Sorry And Move On, Lower Rank Staff Pays The Price

That every time a mistake is made, it is the lower ranked staff that gets the blame, while the leaders, normally PAP Ministers and MPs, say sorry and moved on with their cushy pay secured a long time ago. It’s appalling that the buck stops with the men at the bottom, while the men at the top receives not even a reprimand.

Fear Mongering Does Not Work In Singapore Politics Anymore

Fear Mongering Does Not Work In Singapore Politics Anymore

Of course, we know now these had not happened. Aljunied GRC did not become a slum, in fact, they are thriving under WP's stewardship. No one cannot spread CECA untruths, as the real reason behind CECA was not even made public by the government. Singapore had not fallen to ruins despite falsehoods spread by the incumbent party themselves, falsehoods like HDB flats are cash cows forever, and CPF is your money.

Is Integrity Telling People In Advance About GST Hike, Or Saying Sorry For GST Hike

Is Integrity Telling People In Advance About GST Hike, Or Saying Sorry For GST Hike

The fact that GST is going to be raised sooner or later now does not even surprise Singaporeans anymore. So, is integrity really about telling Singaporeans in advance about the expected hike, or actually apologising to Singaporeans that all those noise about GST not being raised were in the end not true? Shouldn't DPM Heng, who is also the Finance Minister, show more integrity to Singaporeans by saying that the government could not fulfill its promise of just four years before, and thus apologise for this breaking of promise?

Elitist Government Uses Assumption That Singaporeans Unable To Take Care Of Own Savings

Elitist Government Uses Assumption That Singaporeans Unable To Take Care Of Own Savings

How do the government come to this conclusion? Is it because they themselves cannot be trusted with their millions in salary? Or is this rule unjustly penalising the average Singaporeans, while the very rich and elite do not need the CPF, because, after all, they are rich, and they have money to burn in their old age.

Ramesh Apologises To Uncle Steven, But Should SG Let Him Off So Easily?

While humility will go a long way, it does seem that Ramesh had none, and was only forced to backtrack after a wall of negativity started surrounding him. Maybe also he was afraid of losing his $66k a month job and will be forced to look for a new job in Singapore, seeing that he is already a Singapore citizen, and this time, he cannot profit anymore from CECA.

Ben Davis Has No Plans To Return To Singapore, But If He Does, He Can Will Be Arrested

Singapore might have lost one footballing talent, while Ben can never step foot in Singapore again. The winner in all this saga? Minister Ng Eng Hen, who must have looked smug as he stood his ground, denying a young man an opportunity to make smart choices in his life.
