Subject: Re: PM Lee is awfully quiet before the election...very unusual.... Why ?
In many parts of Singapore one can hear these groans and grouses. From
shopping centres to servic centres, th people became engaged wih
People became more voiced up and many became more vociferous now than
were in the early years of leactiosn and even in the last 10 years
ever since the the most severe recession started in 1997, where the
fear of "threats" and 'silent retaliations" were still there to subdue
the people. Many went abroad, even the young voicers also went away
after bfing chased out of the coutnry.
But now the old and young in the streets and shops have not subdued
themselves from masking up the voices into whispering whispers and
The are more open and mmore objectives and more sharper in their
voices of opinions and even "hatred" on th papies for going agaisnt
the grains and dusts of the majority of the people who were against
them of their disguied policies.
Even taxi drivers have no qualms as to whom they were talking with
were engaged in lively analysis and open talks about the papies. Many
taxi drivers have not fear of the papies as the earnings have all been
bones after 'eaten" by their top brass in th compnay earning fat
There is no doubt the topics are even fired up in the house and flats.
Dwellers in families are facing tremedous stresses in meeting the high
costs of flats and houses.
Many even projecting that their children future is gone given the fact
the flat is out of reach even to them now. They know that their
children willn ot have any chance to go overseas to study, as most
families have these dreams for them. Theiir future become more clearer
in recent yearswhen jobs are taken aay and pay reduced by 2/3 as one
ages, and worse of all, the flat is now beyond the reaches and
readines of all Singaporeans.
Families at home and outsdie gathering of yong families and young
adult people are firing up on these hot issues. They voiced their
anger that they are not able to even have a flat by the time they
become eligible to buy at the minimum age of 35.
Many think they would have to wait in despair watching the steep rise
of flat prices. Even then they know that they will not even their
reach to buy a flat even if God fast-forwarded their age to 35 now. So
they think how do they to look forward to the next 12 years if they
are now age 23 and starting to earn small earning with a poor pay that
often perpertuated year after year unchanged due to recessions and due
to retrenchments and due to salary suppression by employers who chsoe
to replace them with their own sets of foreign talents underthe
pretentious foriegn talents policy issued by the Govt.
Even those people who have been the silent majority are now becoming
more upturned and up tuned themselves with their children and other
sibling families on the impacts of their lives and costs, and most of
all, their flats which their children will no longer able buy to get
married and to raise their own families. The sumary is these problems
were caused by the papies goverment that caused people not to get
married and not to have chidlren and to stay in Singapore. They, the
papies, shoot and shot their own feet instead.
