Millionaire ministers

The verdict is out today: PAP government has been wrong since January, and the people are correct.

When China reported widespread infection of the coronavirus in January, Singaporeans have called for a complete ban of China visitors. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said the coronavirus is nothing more than a flu and it can never be as serious as SARS.

Singaporeans reported shortage of face masks, but no export limit were placed resulting in today’s stock completely sold out. People asked where are the face masks and questioned the authorities what good can 2 pieces of disposable face masks do? The PAP government replied saying there is no need for people to wear a mask in public.

When doctors from private and public hospitals voiced out against the health ministry, the PAP government ignored the medical advice because the country ran out of face masks.

A Taiwanese current affairs show pointed out that a key virus outbreak weakness in Singapore are foreign worker dormitories and the living conditions of the poor. The PAP government heard them and ignored the foreign worker community.

At the end of the day, the government ignored everyone and fired a number of POFMA orders to stop criticisms. States Times Review is even put up as the first website ever to be a “Declared Online Location”, for whatever it means.

Then in March, Singaporeans called for the country to lock down and shut down schools. The PAP government again ignored everyone and let tens of thousands of Malaysian, numerous infected, to enter the country.

Today we have more than 1,114 cases, and 6 deaths registered. Hindsight is 20/20, and numbers never lie. The PAP government failed to control the outbreak no matter what assurance and lies Lee Hsien Loong spout.

Had the Singapore government even stopped and listen to the people for once, the outbreak could have been controlled like Taiwan and Macau.

So why does the PAP government never once listen to the people?

Well, a corrupted dictatorship is the true nature of the PAP. The millionaire ministers think they are infallible and they perceive themselves to be the “best brains” of the country. Nothing is further from the truth as shown from the emergency press conference last evening.

The ministers were stuttering reading their scripts, dodgy when answering media questions and they are still fixated with bureaucratic jargons like “lockdown”, “shut down” and “Dorscon”. Who cares about what these measures are called, when all the people are asking how is the spread going to stop?

Oh and Chan Chun Sing does not even speak English and Lee Hsien Loong can still lie with a straight face saying “situation under control”.

These corrupted men with authority think their words are the law and so they see no need to listen to anyone without power. The PAP leaders are a public hazard today, and more people are going to die in the future if they remain in power.

May I quote Lee Kuan Yew: Whoever governs Singapore must have that iron in him. Or give it up. This is not a game of cards. This is your life and mine. If Lee Hsien Loong does not have the iron in him: Give it up.
