I don't think Singaporeans care much about Sri lanka

I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Time flies this was 8 yrs ago  The whole protest was triggered by a relative minor event of increase in min sun to $155K.
At the same time CPF blogger Roy was sued for defamation.

The simple process of increasing min sum which had gone on for years unleashed a mountain of hidden resentment against the scheme. 

This build up over a number of years starting with a shifting of withdrawal age from 55 to 60. Then implementing minimum sum below which cannot be taken taken out. Then in 2009, CPF Life. ...

For the poor folks they may have something like 50k locked up...such a sum is never enough for retirement anyway and they had expected to get it I'm full at 55 so they can take a short rest and relief of financial problems. The inability of touch this in full is big deal for them. Since the amount they have is not enough to fund retirement at all they prefer to get their hands on it.

It's like you put your money in fixed deposit and withdrawal date is 55. You anticipate it  then bank say now 60 then ...say you cannot get lump sum but in instalment.

I think for the rich CPF is just aside pocket. They don't even need to touch it for a good Life. They can leave it for children...many even top up for higher interest rate.

For the poor its quite different.

I was there at the protest and spoke to the folks there.
The elites are so rich now they cannot understand the anger on the ground.

Everything is about precedence.. If today we allow rajapaksa to transit, next time how to reject Fatty Kim, Winnie Xi, Forgetful Biden, Cannot Make it Boris Johnson when they run road and transit via Sinkie land..

1. I have served the nation in a combat unit for 2.5 + 10 years. I had fulfilled my duty as a citizen, but has the country do it's part for me?
2. I don't know where the threat of CCP is, but I know the threat of CECA is already at my doorsteps
3. I had been called a CCP, JHK, Pinoy, but they never called me a CECA..

Jobless Jac Lau, PaP also take in as Citizen

This one, PAP will likely do the same

Why do we need 5 Mayors and 80 PAP Ministers?
