PAP MALAY MPS FAIL TO SPEAK UP FOR THE MALAY COMMUNITY

THEREALSINGAPORE 10 June 2014 - 3:38pm

It is high time that our Malay community ask what’s the contribution of the Malay PAP MPs so far. We know they failed to speak up for the Malay Muslim community about the hijab issue. They placed the sole burden of responsibility on the shoulder of our Mufti. In fact, they went underground and agree with the gov’s position contrary to the very people that they are supposed to represent.

After Roy Ngerng’s apology to Hsien Loong and his withdrawal of some posts in his blog, the defamation suit is now in court pending a hearing in July. This is becoming a case where Hsien Loong cannot lose and it would be a matter of how much would the damages be for tarnishing his reputation.

CPF STILL A PRUDENT SCHEME

THEREALSINGAPORE 10 June 2014 - 12:53pm

THERE have been many comments about the inflexibility, necessity and transparency of the Central Provident Fund (CPF). However, the scheme is beneficial, despite the perceived disadvantages. If the CPF scheme is done away with, then we must be really disciplined in order to save enough for the down payment of our property. All the grants related to the CPF would also be gone. Some ask why CPF pays only a 2.5 per cent to 4 per cent return on our money.

GAY PRINCIPAL COMING OUT IN SINGAPORE?

THEREALSINGAPORE 10 June 2014 - 12:01pm

After 50 years, Pete Cahall, the principal of Woodrow Wilson High School in Washngton, D.C came out at the school’s annual gay pride celebration. "I never made this declaration before because I did not want my kids to think differently of me or to not respect me," Cahall told the students. "I have been in the shadows, but I am liberated today." David Catania, the D.C. Council’s first openly gay member who came out as gay when he was 20, said he knew the “silent, quiet, isolating sense of desperation” of living in the closet, and said Cahall’s announcement sent a message not just about acceptance and courage, but also about honesty and integrity. “I think this is the most important lesson that these students will learn this year."
