Return Our CPF: demands for transparency and accountability

It was the biggest public protest I’ve ever seen at Hong Lim Park today. A source put it at 5000. Both the young and the old and people from all ethnic groups turned up in support of today’s protest over the ongoing CPF issue. Two even journeyed to HLP in their wheelchairs. The theme today […]

PM Lee to blame: defamation suit against Roy Ngerng

May 21, 2014

Pioneer Elvis Thong called me and asked, “Hey, Roger, just back from Hadyai. So what’s the hottest news right now?” Pioneer because he’s from the Pioneer Generation. “Haha, PM Lee suing a young blogger over his claims of wrong-doing by CPF,” I said. “Again another suing? Bastard PAP!” So I joined the dots for him. […]

PETTY: PM Lee’s defamation suit against blogger Roy Ngerng

May 20, 2014

Here we go again. It’s probably in his genes. This habit of squashing dissent and criticism with defamation suits has been following PM Lee like a well-loved shadow. Now he’s suing blogger Roy Ngerng over his claims of wrongdoing by CPF, our pension fund. PM Lee has once again proved me right when I said […]

Nelson Mandela Memorial: lesson for the repressive Singapore government

December 11, 2013

Such is the towering stature of Nelson Mandela that more than 100 world leaders past and current attended his Memorial. Among them were autocrats, dictators and others whose sole preoccupation in office is to enrich themselves, their families and cronies.

Singapore human rights: bane of PAP government

July 5, 2013

Like many others I had read Singapore’s ONLY daily newspapers for years. But with the advent of the Internet we gradually realized we had been brainwashed. All along the Straits Times had been and is still the propaganda mouthpiece of the ruling PAP government. For many years now I’ve boycotted the Straits Times also dubbed […]

Free My Internet: protest at Hong Lim Park

June 8, 2013

Every damn thing can be news. If you relate a bizarre experience of someone shitting in a public place, under MDA catch-all definition it can be considered as news and you are liable to be licensed and to fork out $50,000 as a performance bond. After 50 years of one-party rule, the ruling party the […]

Parliamentary Debate on White Paper on Population: Singaporeans continue to seethe with anger

February 7, 2013

I’ve been following the debate on the White Paper on Population in Parliament, in blogs and the social media. The inescapable conclusion is that the majority of Singaporeans stand solidly together to denounce the ruling party for the projected population growth of 6.9 million. So well calibrated? Not 7 million are they sure? A generous […]

PAP on side of Singaporeans: another of PM Lee’s lip service!

January 26, 2013

On the front page of ST aka Shitty Times, the regime mouthpiece, yesterday the less than energetic PM declared that his party the PAP was on the side of Singaporeans. The fact that he saw the need to stress an obvious thing confirms once again the widespread belief that the regime is pro foreigners. PAP […]

Punggol East By-Election: why NOT to vote for PAP

January 24, 2013

When the residents of Punggol go to the polls on Saturday, they must be clear what the stakes are: what it means to vote for the ruling regime, the PAP or the opposition. Among other things a vote for the PAP is to give the ruling regime the mandate for: 1. A non-accountable government. Without […]
