Disappointed with government for providing only lip-service to citizens
Posted by temasektimes on June 3, 2012
I am deeply disappointed with the current government who clearly is just providing lip-service to the plight of the Singapore Citizen. They actually have the cheek to say how we got here.
Did the current government forget that it was on the backs of our parents and grand-parents who believed in the government and believed that the Singapore government will look after Singapore and Singaporeans, who fought and worked and delivered the means for the government to be in?
The wealth of our nation comes directly from our forefathers and all the current administration does is horde the wealth and demand we earn more to put into their coffers.
Does the current administration need to be reminded the the current low birthrate is due to the “two is enough” policy which limited the number of childbirth. And instead of working with the citizens of Singapore to increase our birthrate, the current administration is taking the easy way out by inviting foreigners with different loyalties, agendas and values into Singapore.
Instead of engaging and working with Singapore Citizens to resolve the issues at hand, our government has the cheek to blame Singaporeans instead for our current sentiments. If we are constantly kowtowing to the foreigners who are constantly taking the prime cuts in Singapore, what will be left for Singaporeans? If we are told to kowtow to the foreigners, what difference did the current government have made to our previous colonial masters?
Our forefathers had foresight to see the potential of Singapore, it is really sad when our current elected officials lack even the hindsight to notice the mistakes they have done.
