    "Singapore is losing out many trade deals and billion-dollar projects from China due to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s opposition against China. The Singapore PM openly called for ASEAN countries to oppose China’s claims on the South China Seas, and have repetitively made jokes about China’s environment issues e.g. calling their tap water “pork soup” and air “free smoke”. Lee Hsien Loong also allowed US military to conduct surveillance operations on China’s movements in Asia Pacific and refuse to respect the One-China Policy by continuing military operations in Taiwan."

    With NS, LKY castrated half of Singapore's population. Using ISA on Francis Seow, LKY castrated the Law Society. Bringing Trade Unions under PAP, LKY castrated the Union leaders. Starting PA, LKY castrated the grassroot leaders. Rewarding his cronies with high pay in SPH, LKY castrated the media. Using castration and being successful in upgrading standard of living, LKY had a strong hold on Singapore.

    But LHL is not LKY. LHL lacks LKY's intellect and charisma. Because of his poor performance, poor leadership and bad track record, LHL is not able to command respect except from his closest cronies. That's why LHL resorted to reward his close cronies with ministerial posts and political posts. But these cronies are non performers and giving them such rewards alienates LHL from the people further.

    Also with social media, Singaporeans were able to see through PAP's evil.

    Singapore needs the civil service, media, civic society, law society, and all singaporeans to work for Singapore. LKY's hold on SG is loosening because of pap's performance and social media. Civil servants cant be too defensive and more singaporeans are against the pap. To thwart this trend, pap's hope is in harnessing the new citizens, even at the expense of depriving jobs to qualified and skilled singaporeans. Let us see what evil pap will come up with.

    This works out to be 28 companies per year. This is serious, 5 public listed companies delisting every two months. They include solid blue chips like NOL, Kep Land, SMRT. PAP and SGX attempt to downplay the seriousness of SG's economic problems.

    If pap continues to "helicopter" its people into top management, it is a matter of time before we see solid SG companies like SIA, Kep Corp, Semb Marine, etc getting delisted.

    A country is doomed when:

    1. cronyism is rewarded and honesty is seen as a sacrifice
    2. business prospers due to govt's connection rather than entrepreneurship
    3. money flows to those connected to the govt rather than those who work hard and produce goods and services
    4. people receive favour from the govt through connections rather than meritocracy
    5. the law protects the well connected rather than metes justice
    6. personal hardwork and inventions are conveniently stolen and copied by the govt

    LHL has said that Singapore must remain corruption free to succeed. I ask the PAP:
    1. Are leaders who accept special discounts from property developer to buy condos corrupt?
    2. Is a Minister who accepts work done for free on his bungalow corrupt?
    3. Is allowing your relative to corner law contracts corrupt?
    4. Is an MP who accepts free sex from his subordinate corrupt?
    5. Is placing your relative or cronies in places of high position corrupt?
    6. Is giving Singapore resources such as using NSFs to be free labour as traffic wardens and storemen to help your crony's business corrupt?
    7. Is having two laws, one for pap members and one for other singaporeans corrupt?

    If pap's answer is yes to any of the above, LHL has no moral authority to talk abt corrupt-free Singapore

    I heard that some pap MPs and members are uncomfortable with pap's past misdeeds but dare not openly admit their discomfort. They are wary that speaking up is tantamount to admitting that pap is not as clean as their leaders claimed.

    By not admitting a wrong, the pap MPs and members are complicit and are committing crimes of omission to right a wrong. So I hope these members can speak up and get their PAP leaders to correct their wrong doings

    LKY built Singapore with the help of true Singaporean leaders such as GKS, SR, TCC, EWB. Sadly SG is crumbling under LHL and his running dogs such as TCH, VB, Shan, Indranee. If nothing is done soon, SG will crumble under LHL's leadership.

    LHL, LHY's feud is a blessing in disguise. Something good may come out of this. Best is if LHY stands for election against the pap. LHY alone can do wonders against the pap, better than LTK, CSJ, TJS combined.

    LHY alone will pull in enough votes to make PAP and LHL sweat.

    LKY built SG
    LHL destroys SG

    Will we see LHY coming in to save SG?

    I hope so

    LKY built Singapore.

    LHL is destroying Singapore.

    No saviour is in sight, except LHY. LHY is better than LTK, CSJ or TCJ. LHY was:
    1. Director, JOPD
    2. CEO Singtel
    3. Chairman, F&N
    4. Chairman, CAAS
    5. Director, SGX
    6. Director, Islamic Bank of Asia
    7. Chairman, Republic Poly
    etc

    LHY has wide experience and long reach. If LHY forms a political party, he is likely to attract many talented singaporeans who have fire in their bellies. LHY can defeat the fumbling pap under LHL.

    LHY has said he has no great interest in politics. But SG is in desperate times. And it is in such times that heroes step forward.

    LHY is needed now to fulfil LKY's vision of a country known as Singapore.

    This is a calling which LHY has to consider.

    Long time ago, under LKY and PAP, cronyism and nepotism were taboo in SG. Conflict of interest was avoided like a plague. SG prospered.

    Then as time went on and LKY became old, cronyism, nepotism and conflicts of interest seep in. SG floundered

    Now, under LHL, cronyism, nepotism and conflicts of interest are acceptable and open and are needed for cronies to prosper. SG struggles.

    Will it come a time when cronyism, nepotism and conflict of interest are compulsory for singaporeans to survive in SG. This is when corruption will be rampant. What happened to PAP's value of an incorrupt SG?

    cronyism and nepotism are societal ills which will ultimately destroy a country

    LKY once said that if SG has a bad govt, our girls may have to go overseas to be maids. Little did he realise that two yrs after his death:

    1. Singaporean bankers, managers, executives and technicians are resorting to drive taxis, Uber, Grab cars because there are not enough jobs in SG. This is a serious situation and has profound repercussions as these Singaporeans, though qualified and skilled, will not be able to set up a family or to raise a family
    2. Aged Singaporeans have to eke out a living
    3. Young adult Singaporeans are taking to food panda, uber eat, deliveroo to get a job
    4. MRT breakdown is almost a daily occurrence
    5. BKE, PIE have constant jams
    6. Hospital wards are not enough to take in sick Singaporeans
    7. Yesterday, uncompleted viaduct collapsed
    8. Yesterday, flooding at Tampines
    9. His chosen successor turned dishonourable and demolished his family to preserve the dynasty
    10. Dishonourable son pays his cronies well but refused to pay living wage to singaporean workers
    11. Dishonourable pap ownself praise ownself, ownself acquit ownself to the amusement of the world
    12. Dishonourable son made a fool of himself on the international scene and made SG a laughing stock.
    14. Some SG girls are prostituting themselves to pay for Uni tuition fees
    15. Some sick singaporeans are opting to forego treatment as they cant afford high medical costs

    If LKY is alive, wld he admit that the pap is now a bad govt?

    Wake up, Singaporeans before LHL and PAP do more harm to SG and Singaporeans

    1. MRT breakdowns. PAP's toxic minds blame Singaporeans for anyhow riding MRT causing overload. PAP's solution is to increase MRT fares so as to reduce MRT ridership.

    2. Homeless Singaporeans. PAP's toxic minds attribute Singaporeans' homeless to not planning their finances carefully. PAP's solution to homelessness is to let it be a lesson to other Singaporeans to budget their finances carefully.

    3. Sick Singaporeans. PAP's toxic minds blame sick Singaporeans for not taking care of themselves and allow their bodies to be sick. PAP's solution to sicknesses is to increase health care costs so that it will deter Singaporeans from getting sick

    4. Traffic Congestion. PAP's toxic minds attribute traffic congestion to Singaporeans' penchant to own cars. PAP's solution is two-fold (a) make cars expensive so that Singaporeans dont want to own cars, (b) increase road usage costs so that car owners dont want to drive their cars.

    5. Low GDP Growth. PAP's toxic minds attribute low GDP growth to Singaporeans being lazy and dont work hard. PAP's solution is to import large numbers of cheap foreign labour to increase GDP by sheer input of labour.

    6. Viaduct Collapse. PAP's toxic minds say that accidents can happen and will happen. Deaths and injuries are inevitable. PAP's solution is to overman with cheap foreign labour so that any accident's death and injury will not affect the work as cheap labour is plentiful.

    7. Problems In Singapore. PAP's toxic minds reason that there are so many problems in SG because PAP Ministers are underpaid. PAP's solution to solving SG's problems is to increase PAP Ministers' pay so that we can attract better Ministers who will work harder

    Yes, Singapore voters missed the chance to vote out useless PAP MPs at GE 2015. But we must continue to speak up against blatant pap abuses. Hopefully the true blue, Singapore borned Singaporeans will out vote the imported new citizens at the next GE

    PAP's mandate was achieved with the following:
    1. Bankrupting an opposition through kangaroo courts, eg JBJ, FS, TLH, CSJ, etc
    2. Jailing of credible and valid political opponents, eg CTP, LHS, etc
    3. Control of information to Singaporeans through disinformation and misinformation by state owned MSN
    4. State control of trade unions

    Is there any pride in PAP getting 60% of the votes despite all the despicable practices? Ant other govt wld have got >90 of the votes if they choose to use illegal practices that the pap uses. Getting only 60% after employing such unjust tactics is a failure to me.

    Unlike you, I dont blame the 60% who vote for the pap because they were denied the information and didnt really know who the real pap they voted for. I applaud the 40% Singaporeans who bothered to seek the truth and voted against the pap. this 40% can only grow

    Evil cant triumph good and eventually the pap will be voted out and get their just dessert.

    Look at the world...Marcos, Saddam, Gaddafi...no evil can hoodwink the people all the time
    Don't forget the GRC mechanism.

    If every seat is a single contest....the percentages will change drastically.

    Yes, if pap didnt manipulate the electoral constituencies, many PAP MPs will not be able to get voted in. but we may end up with the last laugh when more GRCs fall in future and more Ministers get sacked by the voters

    Most bad situations you consider realities are man made and can be avoided.

    The impending crumbling of Singapore is PAP made and can be avoided. So if you say that crumbling of Singapore is a reality, i beg to differ strongly

    Do you agree with the below?

    "We have seen the accelerated decline of SG after the demise of the old man. There was no curb of influx of foreigners, instead it was full steam. Recently activity by some association has classified Pinoy as one of our national race, I do not disagree. We should have more classification for the 3rd world FTs they imported since they have become sizeable number in this tiny red dot. With their pet FTs taking over local jobs, management positions and even ministership, we have seen astonishing number of locals becoming unemployed, underemployed, self employed as taxi drivers et cetera."

    Duterte has turned Philippines from being the sickman of ASEAN to be a country well respected by China and USA.

    LHL has turned SG from being well respected by China and USA to the sickman of ASEAN.

    See how a country's fortune can fall in 10years when it has a bad leader like LHL. Sadly, LKY, despite his good and strategic foresight was blind when he assessed LHL.

    Singapore cant afford another term with LHL as PM
