PAP’S GOVERNANCE FAILURE MAKES PAP A LIABILITY TO OUR COUNTRY

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 August 2014 - 10:52am

Singaporeans who continue to be apologists for PAP’s governance failure had better start to scrutinise PAP’s policies objectively. The longer we continue to accommodate PAP’s epic failures, the worse it will be for our children and future generations of Singaporeans. Forgiving as Singaporeans are, we must know when to say ‘enough is enough’. PAP’s parliamentary majority means there is no meaningful debate but only a PAP monologue. The questions raised by opposition party members have not even scratched the surface of PAP’s opacity. By the time they do, chronic issues will have been compounded and Singapore may have fallen off the cliff. It is the responsibility of every citizen to understand what the PAP stands for and its objectives.


HDB TELLS DOG OWNERS TO TAKE THEIR DOGS FOR INHUMANE DEBARKING SURGERY

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 August 2014 - 10:32am

A TRS reader sent us this photo above of a notice from HDB that was sent around to residents at Block 601 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5. The notice informs residents that dog owners must not let their dogs create nuisance by barking as they had received some complaints about barking during the night. One of the suggestions on the notice was that dog owners take their dog for debarking surgery so that they cannot bark anymore and disturb others.


PAP PRIVATISED PUBLIC HEALTHCARE COSTS BUT WHO ARE THE BENEFICIARIES OF GOVERNMENT GRANTS?

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 August 2014 - 10:13am

This is the bill of my 15 year old child who had waited for hours to see a doctor for 5 minutes. 1-The consultation fee “full amount” is stated as “$38.97”. Consultation fees of private clinics like the Healthway Medical Group range from $22 to $35. In my child’s case, it would have been about only $22 at a private clinic. There are also neighbourhood private clinics charging below this rate. 


WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK AT 85?

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 August 2014 - 10:03am

The chances of getting a job at 85 are still there. For those who need the dignity of a job at 85, fear not, there are jobs available, provided you are a non graduate. The working life of Singaporean graduates, unless you belong to the immortal class, is about 45 to 55. After that it is self employed as taxi drivers, or if you are lucky, as security guards. I think the working life span of a security guard is about 70.

GOVT SAYS 'YOU DON'T NEED A DEGREE' 'FOREIGNERS ARE GOOD' BUT STATISTICS PROVE THEM WRONG

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 August 2014 - 9:19pm

We refer to the article ”Parliament: ‘Singaporeans first’ policy will not benefit economy: Amy Khor” (Straits Times, Aug 27). “Singaporeans first” not good for economy? It states that “A manpower policy that advocates hiring “Singaporeans first” will not benefit the economy in the long term, said Senior Minister of State for Manpower Amy Khor in Parliament on Tuesday.


WHY WE SHOULD RECOGNIZE WHAT PAP HAS DONE FOR SINGAPORE BUT STILL VOTE THEM OUT

THEREALSINGAPORE 27 August 2014 - 9:12pm

I do think there are good people in the PAP. However, the PAP has become too heavy and too dense for change. From its socialist beginnings, PAP has veered towards capitalistic profit-making leanings, which are no longer compatible with the social development for the citizenry in Singapore.
