A rainy day?who defines rainy day?when is it a rainy day?When all our ppl are old and need expensive medicial treatment is that a rainy day , or do we still continue saving for the end of the world?

    Hi
    We don’t have a robust debate in parliament as claimed by the PAP to be so. Whenever bills or whatsoever are passed in parliament, it is more of a process of ‘informing Singaporeans that bills shall be passed and that's it”.
    PAP MPs themselves are not providing that so-called debate. We need more MPs like Sylvia Lim to provide the check and balance, probing and asking more questions on behalf of the people

    “If MPs believe that something is wrong, it’s MPs’ job to pursue the facts and make these allegations in their own name, decide whether something seems to be wrong. And if you think something is wrong, even if you’re not fully sure, then come to this House, confront the Government, ask for explanations and answers.”

    My Comment :
    Based on PM's words, this whole episode is much ado about nothing - very silly.

    Quote :
    Mr Heng tried to help by talking about how the Budget is a secret. Ms Lim agreed and had a deft response: “I think that’s actually part of the whole issue. Only the Cabinet knows the truth. And as I’ve said in my speech earlier, the Government has said it’s refuted that it had any intention to raise the GST this year. I do not know the truth. So I can accept that I may have been wrong, but I do not accept that my suspicion had no basis and I do not apologise.’’

    My Comment :
    Many years ago, Mr Wong Kan Seng said that when more than one person knew about something, that something was not a secret. This reminds me of the song titled "Secret Love" : "... and my secret love no secret anymore".

    The Public Sector (Governance) Bill empowers Ministers/Ministries/Agencies to share highly-confidential or secret information within the Civil Service and will never share this with Opposition Parties. As such secrets are no longer secrets, these are however "secrets" to Opposition MPs and all Singaporeans/Taxpayers.

    If mass apologies are needed, I suspect we will need the National Stadium to accommodate all who share Sylvia's suspicions.
