Quickie Solutions

It has to be the answer to the AIMgate nightmare.

The government tender which closes on March 4, inviting applicants to install a "fully operational integrated town council management system with operation support and maintenance", will effectively replace the shady Action Information Management (AIM) deal. All questions about Chandra Das' $2 company and how much money was actually spent on the software development will be swept under the carpet, now the subject will be deemed water under the bridge. The Ministry of National Development (MND) team probably won't have to complete the full review ordered by Lee Hsien Loong. How can one review something that no longer exists?

More important, co-ordinating chairman of the 14 PAP-run town councils Teo Ho Pin will be off the hook. The danger of another by-election has been obviated. Brilliant!

To make sure the package is water-tight, as confirmed by Teo, AIM prepared the actual tender specifications.  They must have learned from the NParks exercise that the correctly worded  documentation will ensure the desired product will be delivered. Teo would not reveal how many interested parties picked up the tender documents, and whether AIM will be audacious enough to repeat another dubious undertaking.

The other quickie solution to another nightmare was Li Ye Ming's resignation of his vice chairman post at the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations. Federation chairman Tan Thian Poh should be relieved, but strangely, he said the research and publications committee is "looking into Li's resignation". Don't look too hard, or you might stumble across his online promise to "raise an army to flatten Singapore".

That kind of vitriolic borders on the seditious, a thousand times worse than inciting xenophobia. Li is now free to disappear into the anonymous swell of the fifth column, only to surface at strategic moments of the National Conversation. 
PM Lee pointed him out as an "old migrant"

  2. So AIM has prepared the tender specifications, and AIM also aim to be one of the participating tenderers?!

    So the review has barely started or shall I say completed and they decided to build and develop new software? Based on what? Another cart before the house, like PWP, let's build the infrastructure before we agree 6.9m will come in kind of scenario?

    So the software is for the WP wards only, or for the entire TCs island wide?

    So what happens to the review report now? Are they really trying to burn the bridges with the people here by burying another one under the bridge? I don't see any farking accountability, just another pure bloody arrogance!

    1. If AIM is the previous vendor/bidder, how can PAP now allow a previous bidder write the specifications without inviting speculations of another clear conflict of interests just like our Prime Minister allowing his wife to take up one of the most powerful & conflict of interest GIC positions in the govt?

      What exactly are they trying to tell us, that they don't give a damn about conflict of interests?

  4. Did he really write
    "raise an army to flatten Singapore". ?
    The police should arrest him for threatening a whole country. They arrest people for threatening a single person or threatening the casino.

    1. You mean the 13-year-old school boy, an Indian national studying in Singapore, who was arrested by the police on 1 Jan 2013 as a Breach of Prohibition Against False Threats of Terrorist Acts for posting a threat on Facebook saying that when he leaves Singapore, he will take revenge on Singapore by planting bombs in Marina Bay Sands?

    3. You should send this url to the police to help them with their investigations. If they can haul up an Indian school boy for a Facebook post, why should they make an exception for a Chinese "old migrant" and his Weibo post?

  5. Conflict of interest is of no interest to them? Did your hear about the DPP`s song and dance about conflict of interest being critical and wrong in the SCDF chief`s case? The two egg theory of state again? Two eggs for me and one egg for you?

  6. This bunch of crook is getting on our nerve. They are behaving like legalized robbers who rob the people and been found out, then pretend nothing has happen. Have anyone ever see robbers been caught, and yet not investigated, but let off to continue their business while still under investigation ?

    How stupid can Pinky be ? If AIM is continue as business as usual while still pending investigation, does this not confirm our suspicion that Pinky and his predecessors are behind all this AIMgate ? How can they not even know even they pretend not to given these circumstances ?

    1. If a tree falls in the woods and nobody hears it, then my illegal logging business is a success.

      If a fire alarm rings in the MRT, and nobody hears it, then it's their problem they didn't see the warning.

      If a nest of cockcroaches hide in the drain, and nobody sees it, then the house is not infested.

      If the mainstream media didn't report a strange suicide case of an american researcher in defense tools, then there is no homicide exist.

      Surely, you can go on with the lists - uniquely singapore.

  8. Throw out the PAP in Government and let them remain in Opposition with 20-25 seats. The GRC system PAP engineered may just backfire that way.

    Contrary to rumored fears of a Singapore meltdown, the Civil Service will still be there to support the NEW Government and Singapore. Those who don't can be booted out. There are now many capable and loyal Singaporeans here and overseas who will step in to help.

    There's also a lot of $$$ accounts to unravel, assuming the records don't get destroyed accidentally.

    It will be a such a refreshing breath of Spring for all of us.

    2. Doubt Singaporeans have interest in Aimgate. But, Palmergate will thrill them as most are interested and titilated by saucy sex episode except maybe the people in white, at least one is known to claim he has not watch any sex film.

    3. U doubt Singaporeans' interest in the AIMgate scandal?
      Just look at the papies' rush to dilute the percentage of Singapore-born with foreigners.
      That's for political survival, man.
      The papies has awakened to the fact that the Age of Ignorance is gone.
      The Age of Knowledge has dawned..

  13. LKY : China tells us that countries big or small are equal, that it is not a hegemon. But when we do something they do not like, they say you have made 1.3 billion people unhappy. So please know your place.

    I wonder if we have made 1.3billion people unhappy over there, or 1m PRC PRs unhappy over here. Wonder if he regretted his choice and hoping for another quickie exit down the road?

    1. Well, this episode (actually this period of angst, shall I say, for new citizens) will be a testing period for his/their "conviction(s)".

      If they stay on and contribute, I am sure their first generation children will become a Singaporean Core. If not, then they will be the Singaporean Whore where people will like to prove right/wrong. It remains to be seen.

  14. Li Yeming is basically a PRC dog carrying a red passport for convenience sake.

    ReplyDelete
  15. ST reported that Li Yeming has made a police report for "rumours" being spread online about him. Huh. Why is the police even entertaining him? Is spreading rumours a criminal offense? If Li feels defamed, he should get a lawyer to send threatening letters to website owners to rmove the posts, like what our ministers did.

    The polic is opening a can of worms by allowing such stupid police reports. Can i make a police report becos i suspct my neighbour is spreading rumours about me?

    1. Re police report: good grief, the guy is starting to look a bigger and bigger wimp. Starts a fire then cries Daddy, the fire is burning me...

      Can't Li raise an army to flatten these rumour spreaders? Or is he another of those who make promises but don't do what they promise?

    2. If you have been defamed by malicious rumours, would you react the same way as he did?

      He is not the 高級督察 on weibo whom had been making rude comments against Singaporeans.
