Rat Infestation

Chairman of Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC) is opposition MP Sylvia Lim, who faces a potential fine of $1000 for organising the Lunar New Year Flora and Community Fair 2014 from Jan 9 to Jan 30 this year. AHPETC's lawyer Peter Low pointed out that it was a “mini-fair” or an “event”, and hence did not require a permit. Although Low is unlikely to over invoice for his services like PAP MP Alvin Yeo did in the Susan Lim case, the court charges will surely exceed the thousand bucks easily. Why bother, you may ask.

Low showed the court a revised trade fair application form dated July 2008, which states “only grassroots organisations, town councils and charitable, civic, educational, religious or social institutions are allowed to hold fairs”. But the forms the AHPETC received last December did not have the crucial words “town councils”.

Low asked when and why the change was made. Mr Tan objected, saying it was irrelevant as the issue before the court is whether the event needed a permit. We, the people of Singapore, would also like to object: How is it the change was conveniently incurred within a month (Dec - Jan)? And who makes those changes anyway?

In parliament on Tuesday 7 Oct, same Sylvia Lim also asked about another convenient change, specifically why an option to inform others when applying for a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) was removed from the form just last month, when Yang Yin's grand scheme was finally unfolding in the mainstream media. The answer from Minister for Social and Family Development Chan Chun Sing stating that the current LPA scheme has adequate safeguards was far from satisfactory. Especially when an 87-year-old Singaporean widow stands to lose her $40 million worth of assets to a dubious character from the PRC because of the mere stroke of a pen.

The resident who wrote to MP for Bukit Panjang and Mayor for North West District Teo Ho Pin to complain about rat infestation at his estate finally got his template response: not my problem, officer XXX will be looking into issue shortly. Meanwhile the rats are having a field day, doing what rats do, spreading havoc to the environment. No wonder there are so many rats in the system.

  2. In spite of manipulating GE2011 to their full advantage, pap still lost a hugh constituency to WP and a hugh loss in overall votes.

    After their loss, they make life very difficult for the elected WP MPs, showing the sore and poor losers that they are.

    When the pap make my MP, Ms. Sylvia Lim, to go seek approval from their dogs manning the citizens consultative committee, don't even think that we residents will be so unprincipled to condone such bullying tactics by voting for the miws. Ever.

  3. Now the million dollar question is it because the old man is particularly sore that his pre-election warning to those Aljunied voters was not heeded, hence he lost face and had to punish them or otherwise he is regarded as a man of no honour if he doesn't carry out his threat?

  4. Had the resident called the municipal office? Oop, Gracefool is with her boss and both are out of town. At the mean time, the rats will have their days roaming the estate.

  5. But, businesses love and support the ruling party. Business owners view politics differently from employees.

    1. Nothing news-shattering.

      AirAsia bought the debt-ridden airline for ringgit$1 too.
      But Tony Fenandez turned it into profitable airline a year later.

      Tiger Air went from ang-moh CEO to local shipping Executive to now SIA-board member , and none of them can save it, and in the end, SIA needs to bail them out. Tells you why they are useless when it comes to entrepreneurship. Paying top money to make mistake and learn on the job…just like PAP leaders

  8. They say what they mean (sometimes in a bloop moment), and they mean what they say, the father and son.

    "I will spend all my time, I have to spend all my time thinking of what is the right way to fix them"
    "If Aljunied decides to go that way, well Aljunied has five years to live and repent."

  11. Remember how estate duty was also conveniently removed because someone's wife was on the verge of losing her final breath before gun carraige carried her away. End of her day, there is no need for the dying rich to pay their estate duty.

  12. Reminds of the horror movie Ben, about a boy and his pet rat, the LEEDER OF A PACK OF KILLER RATS.
    Michael Jackson sang the theme song for the movie. A fine song it is too.

  13. They think they can suka suka pervert the use of their power. But they have underestimated the people's sense of justice and fair play, for which they will pay a high price, because they will have lost the people's trust. Look no further than the last by elections. See, everytime they try their dirty tricks, it always blow back in their own faces.
