Dear PM Lee,
'Gardens at the Airport'.
'Medishield Life'.
'“Affordable” HDB'.
'Education “Changes”'.
Each sillier than how you look in pink, and it all boils down to one trait of yours: Misplaced Priorities...
You may have heard the wrong thing from the wrong person, but that doesn’t excuse you from making wrong proposals built on wrong fundamentals for Singapore...
Let’s go through one by one to explain how you have compounded and worsened the existing state of affairs and the lives of millions of Singaporeans...
Gardens at the Airport:-
Why are you doing this?
We do not need more billion dollar playgrounds for foreigners. Gardens by the Bay cost $1.1 billion to build, $53 million a year to maintain...!
As for your pet Project Jewel, Singapore is now bleeding at least $100 million every year just on maintenance alone...!
Have you gone out of your mind from losing too many by-elections? Why are you squandering Singaporeans’ money on billion dollar projects that serve no direct interests to native Singaporeans...?
You could not even come up with ROI or statistical evidence in the form of tourist dollars or annual visits to these sites, and here you are happily pitching your very expensive garden to the average Singaporeans who have their bills to worry about...
Also, did you not say you were ramping up infrastructures for a 6.9 million population? Why did you not use this money to build more housing, or are Singaporeans going to sleep in the airport? This proposal does not solve the overcrowding problem, it worsens it...
Medishield Life:-
Universal insurance for Singaporeans is a good step in the right direction. But how much are you going to make us pay...?
I will reserve comments for now until I see your price list. And, if you are not going to declare the pooled Medishield fund amount to the public, how could we trust you with our money? You could be raising premiums as and when you like, like how you always tinker with our CPF’s Minimum Sum & Withdrawal Age without public consultation...
We have had enough of you telling us “you cannot opt out”. Your CPF Life Annuity was like this. Why am I not allowed the choice to opt-out when you have no transparency and accountability to show of in your system...?
Compare yourself to the Australian Government who could detail how much withdrawals and deposits are made, how do you expect the average citizen to trust our money under your care? We are not naive PAP voters who take in every word you say...
Before we part from this topic, we have also not gone on to the escalating costs and worsening quality of healthcare in Singapore, so could you please get your basics right first before introducing new ideas...?
“Affordable” HDB:-
This is where I can safely conclude you are stupid. Take the 2 room flat for example, do you know how much is the initial deposit and how long will it take a $1000 earner to raise it...?
What is affordable when you have to take a 25 year loan? You are encouraging irresponsible parents to take up huge loans and pass on the debt over to their children. Playing with skewed statistics does not even work on Singaporeans with less than half a brain. How much profit is the HDB earning through BTO flats after construction costs? What about the profit earned in interests from Singaporeans holding mortgage loans through HDB...?
You are right when you said you are a housing agent, because like one, your salary is funded partly through Buyer’s Stamp Duty and annual property taxes. And your monthly financial projections that concludes how “affordable” HDB is? That is amateurish; voters like me are simply aghast at your $4000-salary-for-4-rm-flat joke...
You should either leave the job of telling incomplete truth to the Straits Times, or resign to be a full time stand-up comedian in US making jokes about China...
Education “changes”*
Ok so you changed the point system to an L1R5-like band system. So what? You reserved 40 seats for non-affiliated enrolment in top schools. You allow Normal Stream students to take the O levels. Is this Change or coins in your pockets...?
It is hard to understand how are these going to stamp out elitism and reduce stress on Singaporean students...
Band-chasing is going to put less stress on students than mark-chasing? Going to school with non-elites will make children of your fellow PAP Ministers and MPs less elitist...?
When we talk about Education “changes”, nothing has been mentioned about the lack of university places and the increasing costs of tertiary education. Right when you are calling every foreigner holding a degree “talent”, you are doing nothing to help aspiring Singaporeans obtain their degrees, so please, cut the hypocrisy and keep your change...
Despite your ludicrous proposals, there are also many issues you conveniently swerved out of – foreigner population, escalating cost of living, COE prices, public transport breakdowns, inadequacy for retirement, media control, widening income gap, increasing corruption cases, depressed salaries, unfair NS treatment, dipping standard of living resulting in growing unhappiness among the people, etc...
These are all important and valid concerns raised not just yesterday, but umpteen times in nearly every feedback channel, and your apparent overlook shows that you do not care at all...
In all honesty, many feel you should resign. Your incompetence and misplaced priorities will ruin Singaporeans. If your idea of a Singapore is a mix of little India, little China and little Philippines, please say so earlier so we Singaporeans could all make our emigration plans.....

A deeply disappointed S'porean!

Many will agree wholeheartedly with this writer
