In sharing on its own official facebook page a propaganda article written for it by Mothership.sg that Temasek Review Singapore has called “fake news”the Land Transport Authority (LTA) wrote:

“@Mothership.sg Thanks for brightening our Monday morning! Indeed, our public transport workers have been working very closely with our operators to renew and rejuvenate our rail components such as sleepers, signalling and power systems🚧. There were also #NewTrains 🚆 added to make your journey smoother and more comfortable.”

According to TRS, the state media outlet used a “fake government graphic, claiming that railway reliability has improved some 6-times since 2015.” It says this is untrue as the statistics is “based on the lopsided calculation known as the Mean Kilometre Between Failures (MKBF).”

“The MKBF does not take into account the impact of affected passengers and the amount of downtime during a breakdown. There is also no consideration on the punctuality, fare prices, accidents, average waiting time, speed, occupancy or any railway service-related measurement. MKBF is strictly a measurement on accidents, instead of rail reliability.” it adds.

“The Singapore government is the only country in the world to use the MKBF, while other train lines use other measurements like the Railway Performance Index, which considers the intensity of use, quality of service and fares affordability relative to purchasing power.”

‘Purple Parade’ a ‘circus’ that has lost its sense of purpose and direction, says former disabled association head

Former president of the Disabled People’s Association (DPA) Nicholas Aw has quit. At a media interview, Nicholas Aw called the government’s annual event to raise public awareness on disabilities, the Purple Parade, a “circus”:

“The Purple Parade lost its sense of purpose and direction and did not do enough to make people understand the experiences of the disabled. It’s become a circus. When you go there, it’s very noisy, loud and infectious… a lot of people from the sector, such as those who are autistic, say that they do not want to attend as they are sensitive to the loud noise.”

PAP has made it such that whatever you do can be to their advantage

Opinion |

yq-pmlee2-19022019_2x.jpg

The problem is PAP has mastered the craft so well that whatever you do, can be to their advantage.

Fight for gay rights? PAP says I allow Pink Dot, I support you, just that “society not ready”, so you blame society.

Retain traditional values, Christian and other religious values? That’s me again! I am omnipresent, and I am everywhere in your religious places, some people even think I am God.

Fight for more fairness and equality? Bingo! That’s what I have been saying all along. Right from the days we recite the Pledge, regardless of …this and that.. I am for equality, but I know it’s difficult, so don’t blame me.

Fight for environmental activism? PAP says I have Saving Gaia, I want to do my part, but you people must do your part too. You people want plastic bags, not me.

Fight for less emphasis on grades? PAP says, yes, that’s me, I just abolished streaming and will now start to de-emphasise grades, but some of you parents still want grades and exams, and qualifications, so don’t blame me.

Fight for more Chinese language emphasis? PAP says, me again, I have the SAP, I have cultural programmes, but it is you people who don’t like and don’t want to study Chinese, don’t blame me.

Fight for dialects? Yes, here I am again. I endorse dialects through having dialect programmes on my Gov.sg youtube channel. You can’t say I don’t encourage dialects, it is you guys who don’t know and forgot how to speak dialects, don’t blame me.

You want to speak Singlish? By all means, all my proxy youtube channels, proxy clowns and IBs all know how to speak Singlish, like Mr Brown, Ah Lian, and Phua Chu Kang. It’s these people do one, not me, don’t blame me.

You want more work-life balance? I have always been promoting and encouraging it! It is you people who want to work long hours, party outside, and don’t want go home and eat and spend time with family.

Now, by now, I hope you realise the only thing PAP will not say “me again“, are things like real democracy, human rights, free speech and transparency.

Real democracy? No, PAP says I can have smaller GRCs, more SMCs (they themselves created GRCs). I also choose which presidential candidates you can vote for, and who to certify as which minority race.

Human rights? No lah, you have rights to smoke, right? You have rights to study, or don’t study, right? You have right to use e-scooters to endanger people, right? See, I give so many rights, I so liberal!

Less media monopoly? At most I can give you MediaCorp and SPH. Anything beyond that, maybe some youtube channels that sing my praises. Free media that checks on the Govt, and can report fairly and bravely on all parties, not for us.

You want transparency? Think again, our country welfare and national interest is at stake! Telling people how much we really earn will cause catastrophe, and opening up the books, will cause Singapore to collapse.

If you still believe in them, I think there isn’t something wrong with them; there is something wrong with you.

Whistle-blower exposes Google’s attempt to ‘hack’ the next American election

google, dem bias.PNG

Google’s liberal stances not only extend to controlling your search results for “women can…” and “men can…”, they are apparently and allegedly also trying to control election results for the coming US polls, and trying to prevent a Trump win, in line with their liberal and Democratic political bias.

If this news is real, we should be worried.

PAP recruits otherwise-fired up newly grads as civil servants to ‘lock in’ support

Monopolistic economy also subjects young fresh grads to exploitation

 

| Opinion

civil service bonus.jpg

We have heard the stories of young fresh interns being sexually exploited, or otherwise bullied in startups and other big private firms. Still in uni, or just grad from uni, makes them susceptible to cheeko-peks in firms who have money and power to ‘decide their future and prospects’ and as many work in the insurance line, they become vulnerable to cheeko-pek clients and customers.

So these law and business grads end up in these kinds of shitholes, while the ‘luckier’ ones, who graduate from the social arts schools seek ‘protection’ from the PAP Government and get to become civil servants with high pay but exploitative working conditions, no less. You also hear news of teachers who are not protected by the system, even when they get bullied by principals, parents, and even students. Not long ago, we have teachers who have been upskirted by their form class students, and even molested – but the school principal urged them not to report to the police, or to keep the cases downplayed.

Is this what our reality looks like – and where our future is headed?

But lo and behold, majority of these so-called private interns and newbies, and Government civil servants feel they are leading a ‘comfortable’ life, and would not want to complain about their “good” Government, or risk losing their jobs and ‘iron rice bowl.’ Coupled with the very monopolistic nature of our economy (with Temasek controlling every aspect of economy, and very few really private enterprises), these young people are basically stuck in the Government sector, and hence ‘indebted’ to the Government, and would not want to ‘rock the rice bowl’ of sorts, in their nice offices in the Ministries of Health, Finance, Education, etc.

These ministries have no qualms about drawing these young, fresh, innocent, easy-to-hoodwink-and-bully youngsters, while dismissing and firing the older, less-easy-to-bully, but actually more experienced and knowledgeable old workers from their positions, further causing social divides, retrenchments, recessions, and unhappiness overall, not to mention a dip in the standards and performance of the ministries as some of the good ones get removed.

Meanwhile, so-called ‘scholars’ get to climb the smooth career ladder in these ministries, getting parachuted here and there, like nobody’s business, and usually at the expense of the others who would otherwise have been deemed capable and able to take up the relevant positions. Widespread favouritism and biases exist throughout the entire civil service system, leading to a combination of widespread resignations that you see, and solidification of the PAP-supporting core of those who get to stay behind and are ‘favoured by the system’.

Those more daring ones, come out to set up their own start-up businesses, only to ask for ‘grants’ from the Government because it is simply too difficult to do business in highly-monopolistic Singapore, and then in turn, also ‘indebted’ to the PAP Government because of these assistance.

We are all trapped – yet we thank the PAP!

Want to break the system? I haven’t thought of a way out.

Roy Ngerng blasts Mothership for twisted portrayal of him in Taiwan protest for HK

Dogs need to be blasted.

65079512_10156611292734141_8928255187450068992_n

So some days back, Mothership.sg (widely believed to be funded by George Yeo) decided to publish an article about Roy Ngerng’s support for the Hong Kong protests (against the Mainland Extradition Law), and called it: “This is some next level foreign-influence-ception.”

 

He very clearly and sharply poses this question to the PAP-supporting media:

How exactly does it work in the editorial team in Mothership where my support for the Hong Kong protests can be shaped to be “foreign-influence-ception”, but the publication by they themselves which supports the Hong Kong’s protests is not construed as “foreign-influence-ception”?

 

Calling out the PAP-affiliated media

And he did not mince words calling out Mothership for being a PAP media, that tries to put him in bad light, as always:

“Mothership has generally taken a negative position about me because we know they are funded by people connected to the PAP, sure. And of course, PAP-affiliated media such as Mothership would position my criticisms of the PAP as negative, and to smear me, because this is the stance PAP has adopted, whether it be the PAP has asked the Mothership to label what I do as “foreign-influence-ception”, only Mothership would know, or be willing to admit.

So, this is it – if you want to label me as being part of “foreign-influence-ception”, then try being consistent with yourself.

“This “foreign-influence-ception” whatchamacallit has been created by the PAP to label its critics, and this foreign interference propaganda the PAP has created is aimed at alienating the activist, so as to prevent others to support the critic in question. It’s an encircling strategy to isolate people.

“We all know the PAP themselves engages in so-called “foreign interference” as well, with the invitations of overseas delegates to Singapore to comment on Singapore’s politics, and their own commentary of other’s politics, so their labeling of critics as being part of “foreign intervention” is laughable. No one buys it, because if the PAP is the larger organizer of what is likes to call “foreign interference”, it’s honestly very hard to take them seriously.

This sentence says it best:

Mothership is therefore complicit in the oppression of Singaporeans and their rights to protest. Why pretend to be liberal while at the same time criticizing Singaporeans who are try to fight for liberal reforms in Singapore? It’s embarrassing.

We all know (and are quite fed up) with how Mothersh** protrays itself as a “liberal” media, sharing “heartwarming stories”, and some selective “critical stories” like the recent fascination over China’s June 4th Incident news. But beyond the ‘liberal’ narrative, is a very clear and consistent streak in helping tell the PAP narrative to win votes for the master.

 

Personal story with Martino Tan

He also gave us a background story of his personal experience with Martino Tan, one of the most frequent writers on the Mothersh** platform:

“What’s more, do you know that Mothership’s Deputy Managing Director and Managing Editor Martino Tan was assigned my buddy during BMT during national service? We were in the same camp, same unit, same section, I was on Bed 6, and he was on Bed 5.

He used to be a nice person, and still appears nice 4 years ago when I met him at a forum on the CPF.

But people change, I suppose. He went on the officer track, eventually worked in the prime minister’s office as its senior manager in online communications, and now he leads Mothership, and has written articles about me.

“As someone who knew me, who knew how garang I was as a soldier, as someone who fought for my fellow soldiers, as someone who showed a lot of gratitude while he was my buddy, and as someone who can turn around and write articles that tore me apart, in spite of knowing who I am as a person, this is what the system does to you, I suppose.”

Managing Editor Martino Tan of Mothership worked in PMO Online Communications before leading Mothership, reveals Roy

No wonder it is top dog for PAP Communications.

A check on Mothership website also reveals the bugger writes mostly ‘advert news’ for PAP Ministers.

In a long article on Facebook about Mothership.sg’s whatchamacallit about Roy Ngerng’s involvement in Taiwan protests in support of those in Hong Kong, the latter gave us a background story of his personal experience with Mothership’s Deputy Managing Director and Managing Editor Martino Tan, one of the most frequent writers on the platform:

“What’s more, do you know that Mothership’s Deputy Managing Director and Managing Editor Martino Tan was assigned my buddy during BMT during national service? We were in the same camp, same unit, same section, I was on Bed 6, and he was on Bed 5.
