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 […]

Hollow Promises: President Tony Tan Address in Parliament

May 17, 2014

Today, to no one’s surprise, ST aka Shitty Times enthusiastically published the full text of the minority President’s Address in Parliament.   I merely skimmed over the captions and headlines. The government vowed to make Singapore a better place and home, take care of the elderly, have more safety nets, put Singaporeans at ease over […]

Pinoy Independence Day celebration in Singapore: PM Lee’s hidden agenda?

April 24, 2014

Many Singaporeans I’ve spoken to are disgusted with PM Lee’s sharp rebuke of those who oppose the Pinoy Independence Day celebration in Orchard Road. PM Lee, once again without weighing the implications of his quick stamp of approval, shows how inept he is as Prime Minister. What’s his hidden agenda? How many Pinoy are newly […]

Pinoy Independence Day celebration in Singapore: PM Lee is disgraceful

April 22, 2014

PM Lee has lambasted Singaporeans as disgraceful over opposition to Pinoy people here holding an Independence Day celebration in the heart of a famous shopping belt in Singapore. The government mouthpiece, The Straits Times ranked 150 in the world, have been trumpeting the comments of so called experts decrying the xenophobia. PM Lee is seriously […]

President Tony Tan: see no evil, hear no evil, do no evil after 18 months in office?

June 17, 2013

The preceding post explained why our lives have not improved since the stirring promises made by PM Lee at his swearing-in ceremony two years after the 2011 General Election. It’s fair to take stock of the government performance and if it had lived up to its pledges two years after GE 2011. In the corporate […]

White Paper on Population: Singaporeans say NO

February 2, 2013

Say what you like about Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore but he has an infectious smile and perhaps laughter too. He has a hidden side that the public are not aware of: a great sense of humour. Before the Punggol East by-election, he declared that the PAP stood by the side of Singaporeans. […]

Yawn: Minister Heng Swee Keat heads committee to rethink policies

August 21, 2012

So Education Minister Heng Swee Kiat has been tasked with the job of re-looking at policies. Honestly I didn’t know he’s the Education Minister. Given the fact that many Ministers and PAP MPs sneaked into Parliament by the backdoor, thanks to the GRC system, the public by and large do not know who they are. […]

Sleeping all along: PM Lee now urges new citizens to be part of Singapore community

July 8, 2012

PM Lee, in whom many Singaporeans have lost confidence in his quiet leadership, has roused himself to urge new citizens to be part of the Singapore community. Shouldn’t this include PRs and other foreigners who have been residing here for years? While the regime has been busy with other things on the national agenda, foreigners […]

Hougang by-election: PAP Lectures (FREE)

May 28, 2012

When Desmond Choo, the flopped Hougang by-election candidate, boldly declared that he was his own man and independent, he provoked much derision and guffaws. At best it was bravado, at worst naïveté. The bugle sounded and the PAP big artillery charged into the fray in the face of massive support for the Workers’ Party. In […]
