From: Quek Chee Seng Dear Editors, As a Singaporean, I have a 2 questions for ICA: (1) Is ICA still an agency that Singaporeans can trust if you cannot get your house in order – your staff deliberately released a security footage (2) Are our passport and personal particular information safe since Singaporeans are now aware that there are unreliable ICA staff...

REDDOTWINSTON – This is going to be lengthy but this needs a rebuttal because there are things that the author intentionally excluded which makes it malicious. I’m referring to the article “Truth Exposed: The Dirty CPF-HDB Scheme To Trick Singaporeans“.   I am not a fan of the CPF because I eschew the fact that it is only a good tool for people who...

BOSS- Many of you may not know it. I was a super fan of the PAP Party, much more than IBs and Fabrications About The PAP. When I was a little boy, my father always told me that PAP was the best and that we should fully support them. He often mentioned that PAP Spirit was the best in the political arena because it sought to care for its citizens and inculcate a...

In case you didn’t attend the Return our CPF rally, and need some smart-ass wisecracks to 1. show off to you friends, 2. answer some smart-asses who don’t agree with the whole Return our CPF concept, or 3. pick up politically-motivated young ladies, here’s a handy list of Top 10 quotable quotes from the rally. Just don’t be too smug when you...

Is Malaysia so brimming with talent that 40% of vagrants in Johor Bahru can hold regular jobs in Singapore, and earn between S$1000 to S$2000.   These homeless Malaysians tend to sleep in the streets, in parks, or along corridors outside buildings when they return to Johor Bahru, according to the welfare organisation, Johor Women and Family. They are employed...

By anyhowhantam — In the latest twist in the Roy Ng v Lee Hsien Loong (the PM) saga, he’s actively seeking donations from the public to fund his legal defense.   He’s thus far raised close to $50,000 in 3 days and in order to be accountable and transparent, he says he’ll publish a daily update of all monies received. (which he has done...

I write for Redwire Times Singapore when I’m not drunk. I still do when I am drunk. And this whole constructive debate has left a very bitter aftertaste in my mouth, and on my computer – either because I spilt beer on it, or because we’ve been discussing this issue for so bloody long that it’s beginning to sicken me.   The ruling powers can talk all they...

Much of what I come across in our papers and online including nameplate analysts and economists about the CPF is at best partially correct. The folks at GIC would know this well. People don’t realize that any commitment to guarantee higher returns will likely start to pile on risk of loss faster than the additional returns sought given the investment skill and...

Is MP for Ang Mo Kio GRC Inderjit Singh trying to be a maverick? His surprising rant against the ruling powers spans about 8 pages and 4400 words. For those who aren’t inclined to read the full post, here’s Redwire’s take on the Top 10 Criticisms of Singapore in Singh-lish.   On Government Failure: We are fixing the symptoms of the problems...

Terrorists could have had 3 shots in 4 years to strike our train network, which carries 2.5 million people every day. Singapore’s Transport Ministry and the SMRT management must be taken to task, especially when all it takes to bring our transport system and economy to a standstill apparently is a wire cutter.   Trains are housed for maintenance and deployed...

More than a hundred people and 6 organisations have signed an open letter to the Singapore government calling for responsible treatment of those arrested in connection with the vandalism of a block of flats in Toa Payoh. They are angry at the way the Singapore authorities and mainstream media have handled the alleged vandals. They want the accused persons to be detained...

Many people have expressed in the social media that they are not happy that the CPF savings cannot be withdrawn at 55 or even 65. They felt strongly that the government did not have the right to delay payment and are doing so, as they do not have the funds to pay back the CPF. It is quite easy for the government to print money to pay back the CPF, so this “lack...

“It becomes like pack behaviour. You scold, you swear, you curse. All the wrong instincts get fed and in a group, there’s a certain group dynamic and it is like a pack of hounds hunting, which is bad,”   That’s probably Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s best impression of his father, Lee Kuan Yew, who resoundingly said years back that Singaporeans need...

PAP Town Councils Coordinating Chairman Dr Teo Ho Pin says there was “no breach of security measures”, the town council involved says it has security processes in place… so who or what could have vandalized the roof of Block 85A Toa Payoh Lorong 4? We examine all plausible explanations.   Facts of the Case   The roof level at Block 85A Toa...
