GE2020: Election Debate Showed Vivian Balakrishnan's Personal Vendetta Against Dr Chee Soon Juan

As I viewed the CNA debate last night, I really find it so hard to respect VB for the way he deliberately singled out CSJ as someone who patternly promulgates falsehood. That is such a mean blow below the belt.

GE2020: Mediacorp Sabo Opposition Parties With Last Minute Invitations

GE2020: Mediacorp Sabo Opposition Parties With Last Minute Invitations

The 158th media received complains from political candidates about last minute invitations to participate in political debates. Specifically, Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) candidate Bryan Lim Boon Heng criticised Mediacorp for sending an "eleventh hour" invitation. The Workers' Party (WP) may have also been given the same short lead time to make preparations for this Chinese debate. But instead of playing along to Mediacorp's games, WP decided not to attend this Chinese debate altogether. Perhaps WP was right to do a no-show as the Chinese debate turned out to be a farce. Fortunately for the opposition parties, their eloquence outshone the PAP during the English debate.

Covid19: Journalist Kirsten Han Concerned With TraceTogether Token

In a renewed attempt to implement this failed TraceTogether project, the government recently announced that Singaporeans will be issued with a wearable contact-tracing device. Minister of Foreign Affairs (MFA) Vivian Balakrishnan tried to reassure that the device only uses Bluetooth technology to exchange proximity information between devices. He claims there is no GPS in the token and it will not track users' locations. Yet again this proposed token faced mounting concerns about privacy and surveillance. Among those voices was journalist Kirsten Han who came up with various questions about the token.

S'POREANS SHOULD STICK TOGETHER IN DEFIANCE OF CHINA'S BULLYING TACTICS

Singapore should not kowtow to China whenever it is unhappy about issues that Singapore puts forward in its own interests, says a prominent netizen, Andrew Loh. Instead of turning on each other every time the Asian giant rants on its news mouthpiece, The Global Times, Singaporeans should band together instead and stand behind the government when it comes to international disputes.

VIVIAN BALAKRISHNAN CRITICISE SUPERPOWER, ANOTHER TERREX SAGA COMING OUR WAY?

He was obviously referring to China. He even said that no one can control the agenda of the superpower. He is very right in that count. No one can control China, least of all a Minister well known in Singapore for not being able to control the Youth Olympic budget. Now he target China in his speech, although in the capacity of an ASEAN Ministerial meeting.

The last time a Singapore Minister, Prime Minister no less, said something challenging China's authority, our Terrexes were impounded. Big mouth Minister Vivian had opened his mouth, what next will be impounded now.
