    Because of LHL's poor leadership and bad policies, Singapore is experiencing suppressed wages, low purchasing, high business costs, high levies, etc. The results are:

    1. Poor business peformance eg Kep Corp, banks, Singpost, Semb corp, etc results
    2. Retrenchments eg Kep Corp banks, property companies, etc
    3. Even vices are suffering, massage centres, casinos are making losses
    4. Shopping malls are losing tenants, many shops are closing
    5. Many Poly and Uni graduates are jobless

    The pap knows these bad times for SG is due to pap's bad policies and will get worse and perhaps continue for the next few years into 2018, 19 or 2020 which will see our next GE.

    So pap has to find a fall guy to distract Singaporeans from focusing on pap's bad performance at GE 2020.

    Is the brainchild to send SG guys to Iraq in 2017/18 the perfect fall guy and perfect distraction from SG's problems? SAF troops in Iraq may result in casualties and terrorist attack in SG. These will divert our attention to the fundamental problems we are facing now.

    Will the 69.9% wake up

    The PAP is considering scrapping the Bukit Panjang LRT. That's wasteful!

    How can an LRT line which is only 17years old be due for scrapping. Something is very wrong with the pap.

    The London Tube is abt 150 years old and is still running well.

    There's nothing wrong with the MRT or LRT. What is wrong is pap's way of running our MRT and LRT. Lack of proper maintenance

    I hope Singaporeans will hold the new pap responsible for destroying what we have built over 50 years

    It is far better to cut losses than to prolong the agony.

    The LRT decision was made during the LKY era and we all know that LKY made many serious errors of judgement.

    The new PAP team is far more competent and I trust that they will do the right thing and make sound decisions if need be.

    Some people lack the wisdom to see the importance of the BP LRT issue. This issue exposes the bad judgement of the pap. Look at this and other failures, National Stadium, shopping malls, Changi Jewel and you can tell that pap is sinking Singaporeans money into a deep hole instead of investing them in productivity activities which will reap good returns in future.

    The BP LRT may be scrapped and all monies invested in it lost. The National Stadium may become a white elephant. The shopping malls will likely be empty. etc

    If PAP puts a cigarette vending machine outside your front door, would you object? Their reasoning: "You don't have to buy." (Legally, you can't object since it's along the common corridor.)

    Then PAP pushes the cigarette vending machine INSIDE your house, would you accept their reasoning: "You don't need to buy mah." (Legally, you can object.)

    Now PAP resorts to law to force an online betting outlet into your home, even if you have kids, without asking for your permission, and even if you object! (Legally, you can't object.)

    By PAP's logic: "Don't bet. Don't use the internet if you can't resist gambling online. Agree?"

    As a parent, I would not agree! And I would go further. I would urge fellow parents to follow the example of my family.

    We've signed the petition against the Legalisation of Online Gambling.

    You forgot the BIGGEST misjudgment of the Con, the murderous two-child policy which was not only a mere "mistake" but later brought on the mass import of peenoy and ABNN filth and population Ponzi scheme of pinkie.

    Singapore is set to cave in completely!

    The government of Singapore will delve deeper into the anti humanity zone of predatory capitalism.

    By conducting an upcoming terror attack, the Singapore government will reaffirm their ranks among the beasts.

    Singapore is set to help the CCTV & police equipment sellers increase sales of their products via terrorism.

    CCTV & police equipment sellers to make major sales in the upcoming sg terror attack.
    bit.ly/2gLhiOS

    Despicably subterfugal, predatory capitalists spawns mayhem to create the false impression that their products are needed in order to make gargantuan amounts through the sales of their products.

    There are more humane and definitely less criminal ways to make money!

    If you have been following the news, you can see that Singapore is not doing well indeed.

    - Government suddenly approves online gambling. In 2014, they made it clear it is banned.

    - The idiot Lee Hsien Loong has been traveling a lot to various countries to try to set up deals with SG.

    - They constantly tell you to top up your CPF....Temasek is losing money? Good luck to those who believe the cunning government. 5 to 10 years later, they will implement new rules and say you cannot touch your CPF till much later. Temasek is controlled by LHL and his wife. Crafty. Which country other than SG got the head of state and his closest blood relation control state money?

    - HDB flat prices all increased gao gao in the last 5-10 years. The more expensive HDB flats are, the more they can collect loans and taxes from the poor suckers who got to pay for the next 30 years. Today, many 4 room BTO flats already hit in excess of half a million $. Resale ones in good location all $800k and above. Citizens get stuck for decades paying for these overpriced public housing, while the government collect revenues from them.

    PAP does not want you to know:

    that it has incurred a debt of US$1,500,000,000,000.

    This debt is payable in future by Singaporeans.

    Life is becoming increasing difficult for Singaporeans. We are only two years after the death of LKY. Many experts have predicted that Singapore cant survive after LKY. Just look at LHL and the pap leaders. They are devoid of ideas and are making life unbearable. They are using crippled ex NMP and other PAP IBs to berate Singaporeans for desiring a good work-life balance.

    1. Why have an independent SG when life is getting so difficult for Singaporeans?
    2. Why have an independent SG when we cant take care of our poor, sick and aged and everyone has to be stressed throughout their lives and there is no reprieve?
    3. Why have an independent Singapore when we have no water, no food of our own and have to drink shit water and have to eat vegetables laced with pesticide?

    Is it better for Singapore:
    1. to merge with Malaysia or
    2. to be part of China?
    3. to be part of Australia?

    Why be a singaporean and be controlled by a fumbling PAP?

    Think abt it!!

    Singapore was able to do well in the 1980s because we had an excellent PAP and very good Singaporean workforce.

    In 2017, we have a lousy pap which is out of touch, overpaid and out of idea leaders.

    In 2017, many of our NUS and NTU new graduates are out of job. Older NUS MBAs have to drive taxis to feed their families. And PAP are employing India Indians and other foreigners who come in with fake qualifications and fake skills just because they are cheaper than Singaporeans. And PAP justify their employment by claiming that NUS Singaporeans dont have the right skills. PAP fails to see the long term implications of employing foreigners and sidelining Singaporeans

    With 3rd world indians and filipinos getting Singaporean jobs now, how can SG compete with China, Vietnam, malaysia in 10, 20years time?

    Crumbling of Singapore is imminent because of wrong pap policies

    SG is in deep trouble as LHL is not able get along with Presidents Trump and Xi. With USA and China shunning LHL, SG is in trouble

    SG is in deep trouble as the economy is faltering severely

    SG is in deep trouble because LHL has been isolated by ASEAN leaders

    SG is in deep trouble because the PAP has no solution to break dependence on cheap foreign labour due to its failure over the last 10years to innovate and upgrade SG's economy.

    PAP has painted itself and SG into a dead corner

    Najib is on good terms with President Xi. Now Malaysia wants ICJ to re-open the Pedra Branca case. Najib sees SG as the new sickman of Asia and knows that he can bully LHL. Let us see how the PAP Cabinet stand up to the new challenges.

    SG is in deep trouble with the pap running around like a headless chicken.

    SG's only land links to other countries are Causeway and 2nd Link to malaysia andimports most of its food from malaysia. If Malaysia turns unfriendly, SG will be in deep trouble.

    SG's Sea Lines of Communications is through control of Pedra Branca and ICJ was kind to SG to give Pedra Branca to SG in 2008. SG will be in deep trouble if Malaysia succeeds in getting ICJ to review and jurisdiction and take Pedra Branca from SG. With LHL antagonising China and Malaysia sucking up to China, Xi can manipulate Malaysia to be a thorn to SG. With Trump against LHL, LCJ may not be kind to SG again.

    Air links are equally important to SG. ICAO has been kind to SG and has granted SG control over Malaysian and Indonesian airspace. With LHL's bad diplomacy and the loss of goodwill from China and USA, SG may lose its control over the wide expanse of airspace.

    Coupled with bad PAP leadership which divides and infuriates Singaporeans, there is only one way for SG under the pap and lhl...crumble!!

    LHL betted heavily against China in favour of USA. LHL betted heavily on Hillary against Trump. LHL lost on both counts and SG will suffer because we betted on the wrong leader.

    China will use Malaysia to retaliate against SG. Food may be scarce and food prices will rise. SG's economy will falter because Sg will be bypassed

    Because Trump succeeds and Hillary fails, LHL's bet will affect SG. Will IJC and ICAO be kind to SG now that SG has lost USA's favour? Will SG lose Pedra Branca and control of the wide airspace?

    Agree with you TracyTan
    At the rate it is going on the path of no return
    Leadership shd step down from their high horses and walk the talk.
    Not just state problems which we are also aware.
    Provide solutions as well.

    Singapore's Total Fertility Rate has dropped to a new low of 1.2. To replace ourselves, TFR must be 2.1. With a 1.2 TFR, SG is headed for extinction. Many SG girls are choosing not to have babies because of PAP's bad policies which are anti-Singaporean, anti-family.

    From Leong Sze Hian:

    "Why is it that Singaporeans are not having children?

    Well, here are some likely reasons:

    1. the longest work hours in the world
    2. the lowest incomes in the world among developed countries (“407,400 earn less than $1,200 after CPF?”, Dec 27, 2016)
    3. the most expensive city in the world (The Economist)
    4. the weakest labour protection laws in the world (“As the cock crows – all the labour cobwebs come to roost?”, Feb 7)
    5. the most open foreign labour policies among developed countries (“Job growth forecast: 25,000 to 40,000 – 0 to S’poreans?”, Feb 8)"
    – a lot of people fear losing their jobs (“Only 5% of wrongful dismissal appeals compensated?”, Feb 8)

    PAP has finally admitted that:

    1. MRT has problems and SG now needs 1000s of train engineers to solve the problem
    2. Lift installation and maintenance have problems and SG now needs 1000s of lift technicians and mechanics

    When will pap openly admit that:

    1. Healthcare is a problem and we need 1000s of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, radiologists, etc to solve the problem?
    2. Building sector is in trouble as pap has led in many unqualified and unskilled labourers to build our high rise?
    3. Financial sector is a problem as PAP has allowed foreigners to dominate and inbreed in finance?
    4. IT sector is in big trouble because of infiltration of unqualified foreigners who fake their qualifications?

    SG is in a mess. SG is in trouble

    A reliable word is that the PAP is desperate. Bad PAP leadership in the last 15years has left many skeletons and a huge legacy of failed programmes in SG. A fattened and tired PAP leadership, who each makes at least $30m in the last 10yrs wants out by 2020, is finding no willing takers.

    The word is that LHL, TCH, Tharman want out by 2020. LSS, LHK, GKY, HSK, YI, Gracefool have expressed a desire to follow Lui Tuck Yew. So far only Josephine Teo and Desmond Lee are the greedy ones who think they can make $30m in the next 10years.

    LHL is trying to get CCS, TCJ, Masagos to hang on for the next 10yrs. LHL is trying to get the younger, naive Ministers of State to step up. A desperate is now not looking for able leaders but is instead willing to accept anyone who is willing to step up for $30m in the next 10years. Those who are willing to step up will be made ministers in 2018. The pap strategy is:
    1. Hang on to power for the next two elections.
    2. Clear all the skeletons in PAP's cupboard in 10yrs so that when an Alternative Govt defeats the pap in 10yrs, the cupboard is clean
    3. Put in new pap politicians who are willing to earn $30m in 10yrs and to clear the pap skeletons. They have found only 2 so far.

    Singapore is doomed with such desperate PAP politicians

    What LKY built, LHL has destroyed.

    Singaporeans need to vote wisely at the next election

    Under LHL, SG creates one diplomatic disaster after another. Unlike LKY, LHL lacks astuteness and stature to command respect from other world leaders. China has isolated SG. USA is too busy fighting its own fire. ASEAN has new leaders like Widodo, Najib, Duterte. SG has been ignored.

    Economically, SG is faltering under high taxes and costs and lack of political leadership.

    SG has no hinterland.

    SG has to import all its food.

    SG doesnt have enough water

    SG has so many 3rd world migrants that law and order is a problem

    Singaporeans are paying high taxes to give politicians who pay themselves obscene salaries. We wont be surprised that not much is lefy in the reserves.

    SG aged cant retire

    Singapore looks glittering on the outside but is hollow and rotten to the core.

    No Singaporean wants to take over the mess LHL has created. LHL cant convince any of his yes-men to step up to take over his mess.

    It is a matter of time before SG collapses.

    Is it time for SG to look at merging with another country? We hope that some country wants to take over a failed and rotten SG. Better to start looking now before the rot and smell is so great that even Malaysia and Philippines despise us
