JB toll hike: Singaporeans boycott JB and Msian buses strike

August 1, 2014

Yesterday five of us JB regulars bade farewell to JB with a party in…JB of course. From today the JB toll for inbound AND outbound (a new toll) will cost RM 16.50. And, the Singapore regime, with greed as its core value, has vowed to match that. Once a week on average each of us […]

VEP increases: Msian government killing the golden goose

July 23, 2014

All governments regard an additional stream irresistible. The only thing that may make them think twice is the threat of paying a political price. Long used to squeezing money from its citizens, the ruling PAP hitherto have had no such fears. But the bad habit is so ingrained in its DNA, that the PAP still […]

PAP Core Value: collecting and collecting more and more revenue

June 5, 2014

Unjustified: ERP is to control traffic congestion but where’s the congestion here? Illogical.   I was struck by what the British PM David Cameron said yesterday in Parliament. To a packed House, he declared that his government intended to let people keep more of their money in their pockets. Say what you like about the […]

Cyber attacks on govt websites: national security shouldn’t be outsourced

November 6, 2013

The cyber attacks against the Singapore government underlines the concern many Singaporeans have over the security of the country. This covers not only cyber security but internal security as well. Many view with growing alarm the vast numbers of so-called foreign talent manning IT in Singapore. Their driving ambition is to make money not the […]

ERP rates to increase: netizens condemn LTA and PAP regime

October 29, 2013

To a man, Singaporeans have taken to the internet to condemn LTA’s move to raise ERP at certain gantries on Monday. LTA says this follows its review. The rate will go up from S$5 to S$6 from 8.30am to 9am. Yahoo attracted more than 500 condemnations, and counting:- “By increasing the ERP pricing, will it […]

Spitting incident at Woodlands Interchange: SPF should carry out active policing

October 26, 2013

It’s heartening to note that SPF have been swift to arrest the spitter. I watched the video and found it scary the way he humiliated the woman and struck fear into those who happened to around at the time. This highlights the need for SPF to boost its policing in public areas. So far it’s […]

LTA: get Woodlands Checkpoint congestion MOVING

September 22, 2013

It is strange. This love affair with JB routinely described by the PAP mouthpiece, The Straits Times, as riddled with crime. Every day the Woodlands ICQ and Causeway see big jams. These days it normally takes about an hour or more to cross over to JB. Weekends see even heavier congestion. Drivers curse and swear […]

LTA Greed: Enforcement Officers chasing after every cent Part 2

April 1, 2013

One look at the picture of the yellow lines in a narrow back lane in Singapore and a Malaysian burst out laughing like mad. “This is crazy. Your government is insanely greedy for money,” he said. “You Singaporeans are easily bullied we Malaysians always say.” “In Malaysia, parking is generally free. After all, roads are […]

Removal of Saturday ERP: proof of PAP government greed

March 23, 2013

When MPs clamoured for the removal of Saturday ERP the regime was unmoved. This is not surprising as profiteering at the people’s expense is one of its CORE values. “Every damn bloody thing PAP makes us pay,” exclaimed the 75 year old retiree who was fined for parking his ancient scooter (rightfully belongs to a […]

LTA Greed: enforcement officers chasing after every cent

March 19, 2013

In earlier posts, I mentioned how LTA Enforcement Officers, mainly recruited from Malaysia, roamed far and wide, to every nook and corner, targeting cars to summon for illegal parking. If motorists cause obstruction and danger to other road users, they deserve to be summoned. In recent days, I went to Tagore Industrial Estate. On two […]
