GOVERNMENT CAN'T JUST SAY IT HELPS THE POOR, MUST SHOW DETAILS OF FINANCIAL AID TOO

The Government should give details of how much aid was given to dispel distrust in our welfare system. Why is it that half of those who applied for ComCare did not qualify for it? If the Government claims it is indeed helping the poor, then it should jolly well be transparent and disclose details of how much financial assistance they are giving. Without more transparency, people will have the impression that they are falling through the cracks or that the Government may not be doing enough.

FAS TO EXPLAIN WHERE DONATION MONEY WENT TO

SportSG has taken the FAS to task, and asked the FAS to submit a full report on how the huge donations was managed and used by the FAS. The allegations came to light when Hougang United chairman Bill Ng, who is leading a team to contest the April 29 FAS elections, alleged that he donated a sum of $850,000 to the FAS, but was not sure how the money was spent. The FAS then clarified that only $715,000 worth of donations it received could be linked with Ng. Out of this, $500,000 went to the Asean Football Federation's (AFF) football management system, where former president Zainudin Nordin had asked Ng to donate to the AFF.

SGREANS CAN TRUST GOVT, BUT SHOW US TRANSPARENCY FIRST

He also explained the need for the 30 per cent increase in water tariffs – the first in 17 years – which was announced last month. He pointed out that one- and two-room HDB households will not see any nett increase at all, while for most other HDB flats, the nett increase will only be between $2 and $11 per month.”

I believe Singaporeans generally trust the Government about its use of the people’s money. This trust may be further enhanced if there is more transparency on how our money is invested and used.

I refer to the Corporate Communications, Ministry of Finance’s reply “Govt more open in sharing data” (Straits Times, Dec 15) to the article ”S’pore can afford to be more open in sharing data” (Dec 11) by Asit K. Biswas and Kris Hartley.

S'PORE GOVT SPENDING HAS ZERO TRANSPARENCY, WORST IN THE WORLD

Singapore ranks lowest on government spending: 0 per cent transparency, 86th and tied for last place with 11 countries that otherwise have little in common with the 20th century’s greatest economic miracle. Singapore joins the likes of Cambodia, Indonesia, China, Zimbabwe, Cyprus and Saudi Arabia in being among the 12 least open for government spending.

AMOS YEE: ALL SINGAPORE STUFF IS THE ONLY ACCOUNTABLE MEDIA IN S'PORE?

How can you tell if someone is truly credible? If someone makes a mistake, and then admits it. AllSingaporeStuff misused DJ jamie yeo’s photo, making it seem like she condemned the Government’s birth policies, when really she accepted them and is an avid sucker of PAP dick. jamie yeo then went onto Facebook to condemn AllSingaporeStuff’s misrepresentation of her, ASS (haha) then quietly took down the article but Mothership noticed their attempt to try to hide their mistake, and reported it. But what did AllSingaporeStuff do?

HAS THE GOVT BEEN TRULY TRANSPARENT & OPEN OVER ALL MATTERS?

According to the Straits Times news report ”GE2015: PM Lee launches PAP slogan ‘with you, for you, for Singapore’, and manifesto” (Aug 29) – “Mr Chong, 62, took aim at opposition parties for being evasive. By contrast, the PAP has been transparent, open, and “where we have fallen short, we have taken decisive action to right our wrongs”, he said.” Since we are talking about “has been transparent, open” – why can’t the Government be transparent and open about the following:

POWER OF INTERNET CSI TEAMS HAVE SCARED OUR POLITICIANS INTO BEING MORE TRANSPARENT

This morning I read about Ng Eng Heng declaring that PAP will be unveiling their candidates starting tomorrow. Honestly speaking, I am quite shocked. Traditionally, PAP has only announced their candidates on nomination day. What then has prompted this sudden change? Afterall, even they know that this it is goint to be a watershed election. So, shouldn’t they be holding their cards very close to the chest, rather than showing everyone what they have??
