Mindef announced yesterday (2 Dec) that it is buying 2 brand new submarines for the navy from a German company. The submarines are expected to be delivered in 2020 and will act as a replacement for the current Challenger-class submarine. The whole project is estimated to be worth about S$1.7billion but the figures are so far unconfirmed and could be more over the life of the project. The contract includes training of a crew in Germany to use the new HDW class 218SG submarines and the submarines will be the most advanced yet.
PAP builds roads for us (unnecessarily) with our roads facing “construction” more than necessary, so as to create revenue for construction companies, earning them the slogan: “purposely want to dig”. And for the small little things they do, like replacing the roof and ceiling and all, they want to amplify it and want us to thank them and ahem, vote for them at the polls.But when will we sit up and realise the truth behind all this?
The smell of foreign shit is everywhere, some disguised as pinky shit by their possession of a newly minted pink IC. Sinkies have been sodomised for so long and finally wakening up with a sore exhaust pipe. There are just too many foreigners here in mid and top management positions not through merit but by screwing the daft Sinkies, with fake degrees, discrimination, favoritism and tribalism.
Dear Prime Minister and the PAP, Here’s the happy truth – Nobody wants to waste their time, effort and emotional energy hounding and criticising everything you do. As with everything in life, if you’re doing a good job, chances are nobody will notice because you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing anyway.
The Traffic Police (TP) has relinquished its duty of enforcement action on illegal parking to the Land Transport Authority (LTA) since 2010. The whole idea was to free up officers to handle more serious violations and investigations. I had my qualms about that, because in essence TP personnel were police officers whereas the LTA personnel who were taking over were not. Police Officers in Singapore undergo training and attend refresher courses where they are explicitly trained when and how they should use their enormous powers conferred by Law.
The ministry of finance reminded the public today that those eligible for additional GST vouchers must sign up by December 31 in order to receive them. This applies for those who want GST Cash and GST Medisave vouchers. These vouchers are available for Singaporeans who only have 1 property or less and whose homes’ annual value (estimated rental value) is less than $21,000. For the GST Cash vouchers, there is an additional criteria that recipients must be aged 21 or above in 2013 and their income in 2011 was less than $24,000 for the full year.
Really interesting. You guys had to watch the video in this news man. It is not exactly a massive vote of confidence in the future of a country when 60 per cent of multi-millionaires are planning to leave and the $650 billion they already hold overseas is expected to double in the next three years, according to Wealth Insight. Singapore is their favorite offshore centre with Dubai the upcoming rival.
By a simple demand and supply analysis: the supply of doctors produced each year is controlled so as to maintain a certain ratio of doctors to populace. The demand for medical services each year should be fairly predictable based on a particular population size. In another words, in a closed environment, there are fewer variables in the health care system. It should be possible to design a system that is affordable for most people.
