Tan Chuan-Jin pressed Low for concrete initiatives, to which he was rewarded with: "If he thinks the ministry can't do very much and wants the WP to do more, perhaps he ought to consider putting his ministry's resources under the WP." Better still, resign and join George Yeo in working for the Hong Kong government. The turncoat general who used to helm the Singapore trade and industry ministries accepted an appointment to Hong Kong's new Economic Development Commission to "help strengthen Hong Kong's growth and development." He actually switched bosses from Lee Hsien Loong to Chief Executive Leung Chun Ying.
The WP has stated their positions vis-a-vis the upside down road map:
Low Birth Rates:
The Government allocated only $400 million extra for the "comprehensive enhancements" for marriage and parenthood. Vivian Balakrishnan blew just as much ($387 million) on one sporting event. WP wants to remove the obstacles to really set birth rates on the path to recovery.
Shrinking Citizen Core:
The Government wants to "supplement" the Singapore core by "calibrated immigration". Please read Syliva Lim's speech for the definition of "core". Interesting aside: Zainal Sapari (Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC) heard that citizens from Philippines will be categorised as Malays because historically they are considered to have the same roots as Malays. If true, the proportion of our true blue Malay brothers and sisters is doomed to fall.
The Government's "Multi-prong" approach in schools, workplace and community means places in school, workplace and community will continue to be taken up by the diluting alien elements. WP emphasised on family ties. When Lee Kuan Yew made one comment too many on the Taiwan-China situation, Deng Xiaoping reminded him: "This is between family. You are not family."
The Government wants our elderly to work to their death. One exception, he didn't even utter one word on the population debate - did he even attend parliament to justify his pension and pay?
The Government promised to address current strains, and yet continue to add pile on the foreign intake. WP suggest build for the quality of life for current population.
In the movie, the underdogs used their secret solution (spoiler alert: pink pollen) to unite the two worlds, instead of surrendering the special ingredient for the commercial greed of the elite. Let the buggers work harder for a change.
