Singaporeans are a whiny lot. We like to complain, and one of many issues we like to complain about probably the most is our authorities. The PAP will get flamed for lots of issues that occur right here. So we’ve determined to compile an inventory of issues that you ought to be blaming the PAP for.
1. Forcing Fandi Ahmad to retire in Batam
When Singapore’s best footballer says he needs to retire in a metropolis recognized for its disdain for loud noises on the ferry terminal, one thing might be actually incorrect with us. Subsequent factor we all know, David Beckham’s shifting out of England, and relocating to the US as an alternative. Oh wait…
2. That scandalous STB commercial
“Honey, look! There’s our good style flying out the window!”
Certain, COE may need closed lower in the recent bidding exercise however we nonetheless need to pay astronomical quantities simply to have the fitting to hire a automotive in Singapore for 10 years.
No less than a few of us have it simple.
5. Minister Mind Drain
Everyone is aware of that our ruling social gathering solely collects one of the best and brightest to signify the social gathering and their constituents. That’s why our minister salaries are so excessive. However what in the event that they’re too excessive? What if our minister salaries are so excessive that corporations are being denied these abilities as a result of they selected public service as an alternative?
6. Crappy Channel 8
MediaCorp Channel 8’s viewing attain fell 3 per cent last year to 57 per cent this year. However even with the slide in rankings, the Mandarin channel continues to be probably the most extremely watched TV channel in free-to-air TV.
Oh nevertheless it can be, Li Nanxing. A few of Channel 8’s latest programming could resonate, however there will probably be none like The Unbeatables and its superior theme track.
Don’t you dare point out The Unbeatables III although.
7. The great meals in Singapore
To have such superb decisions is each a bane and boon. On one hand, we may be assured that wherever we’re on the island at 3am, there’s at all times some meals outlet open simply 10 minutes away (aside from the unfortunate ones who keep in Pulau NTU, in fact). Alternatively, all this available meals is making all of us fats and unhealthy. Simply ask the Malays.
8. Horrible S-League
Which is fairly shocking as a result of everyone knows that former high-ranking officers within the SAF make improbable CEOs. Simply ask Desmond Kuek and SMRT.
Perhaps Chan Chun Sing ought to take into account switching jobs. He appears fairly good at soccer.
10. Anton Casey
As a result of when foreigners make bother right here, it’s at all times the G’s fault. All the time.
Particularly after they convey a former Miss Singapore away to Australia.
11. MRT Overcrowding
12. Banning Shisha
Sigh. What else will hipsters at Haji Lane do now? What else will the carpet retailers promote at evening? What else will the G ban subsequent?
It’s not likely all that dangerous
In all honesty, we haven’t really gone into the actually severe issues, however that’s for an additional day maybe. Within the meantime, depart a touch upon what you suppose we missed out on!
