Askmelah couldn’t have summed it better than “The economy did not max out, PAP did”. Notable quotes:
“Look at soccer and what did ESM Goh said about Goal 2010, where we are today? We could not even beat our neighbours and dared not talk about any more goals anymore.”
“The parliament is always half empty, with many people sleeping in. Most policies are rubber stamped without much debates or no debates. Its a strange country but people accept it without question. Any policy that benefited public in big way? As long as I can remember, none. The best camouflaged policy with so much marketing on TV is Medishield Life that forces everyone including children and those residing overseas to pay.”
“In the past one year, there are more and more hints about 10M population. As we are moving towards 7M, the economy is still poor, looks like they are prepping the public for 10M.”
“Apparently, everyone now is thinking that civil service is like “safe haven”. Yes it is true in the short term. Many will be flocking there and soon there will be a skew in talents in private and public sector! Remember in the long term, this will be really bad because private sector is really the driving force in an economy and public sector is merely the facilitator.”

scandals“incidents” that we have hardly seen in the past has been unfolding one after another in increasing frequencies.
