MP ANG HIN KEE: DON’T BLAME EXTERNAL FACTORS

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 October 2013 - 9:12am

Ang Hin Kee, MP for Ang Mo Kio GRC, said, “I have been to crowded places and seen how people accommodate one another. You have a choice. Don’t blame external factors for our behavior.” Ang was referring to the anti-social behavior of the hooligan who spat at the two female commuters and threatening to hit one of them if not stopped by a SMRT staff. Ang should experience the rush hour crowds at MRT interchange and then ask if the commuters have a choice not to be there.


FAKE WINDOWS IN QINGDAO GO VIRAL

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 October 2013 - 9:05am

Pictures of an affordable housing complex in Qingdao blew up on the net when people realized that some of the windows on the side of the building were painted on. The windows, which were painted with the original construction of the building, have been criticized by netizens as a poor style choice, as well as "cutting corners" in the building's design. Qingdao's city planning bureau responded by saying the "decorative" windows break no planning regulations and have no impact on the building's residents.

‘FAIR EMPLOYMENT’ MUST GO BEYOND NATIONALITY

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 October 2013 - 6:47am

Two important principles underlie this new framework. The first is the Government’s implicit understanding that in order to tackle discriminatory employers, it is not enough to leave the market to itself. Proactive intervention, through both legislation and ongoing administrative monitoring, is necessary to stamp out problematic human resources practices and ensure all employees are treated fairly. Moreover, as the Government has acknowledged, such safeguards are compatible with maintaining a dynamic and competitive economy.


TRANSPORTATION IN SINGAPORE: THE PAP DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THE STRUGGLES OF THE AVERAGE CITIZENS

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 October 2013 - 6:37am

There was an article in The New Paper today which I read with great interest. The article spoke about how taxi fares have been raised over the years and how some people were struggling with alternative modes of public transports as the public transport system do not cater to some groups – such as those with babies or those with immobility – while the increased fares squeeze people really dry. To make things worse, COE prices look like it’s on an uptrend.

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 October 2013 - 9:27pm

Despite the fact that Mr Tharman was named “Finance Minister of the Year 2013″ by the leading financial publication Euromoney this month (‘Tharman named Finance Minister of the Year 2013‘), Singapore’s head of Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), Ravi Menon, has only managed to obtain a ‘B’ rating as a measurement of his performance as a central banker.

THANK YOU SINGAPOREANS FOR HELPING MY FIGHT AGAINST GOVERNMENT BODIES

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 October 2013 - 9:09pm

I’m thankful for the people especially Mr Ravi with the legal proceedings, Mr Leong with the donation drive, Mr Richard Wan and various alternative media for publishing the news.


WHY SHUT DOWN ASHLEYMADISON.COM?

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 October 2013 - 8:46pm

To be honest, I don’t understand the petition to shut down AshleyMadison.com in Singapore. Yes I know it’s a website promoting extramarital affairs. The proposed justification to remove it was to “safeguard social interests”. What are the country’s social interests to begin with? To ensure the sanctity of heterosexual marriages? If so, it has been long gone. Extramarital encounters already do take place in Singapore.
