I/C security: Dumb, non-answer from govmin agency

“The national registration identity card (NRIC) is an important document used for identification purposes. NRIC holders have the responsibility of safekeeping their NRICs and the information on it to avoid being potential victims of crime.”

What the FISH!

Same agency (or is it its predecessor?) also says that when companies etc ask for our i/c or the i/c’s number, it’s contractual, nothing to do with the government. But given that every business wants i/c number for anything (even for lucky draw) , and every security guard and dog, requires us to provide the i/c to enter “secured” premises, how canĀ “NRIC holders have the responsibility of safekeeping their NRICs and the information on it to avoid being potential victims of crime”, Koh Wee Sing, Head, Public & Internal Communications, Corporate Communications Division, Immigration & Checkpoints Authority, pray tell us?

Maybe he is practicising to become a PAP candidate MP at the next GE? Remember Kate Spade, and “Fool me” Foo and Puthu the FTs? And Tharman, and Hng Kiang and their tastless jokes on inflation?

Friend who was from ST and MediaCorp who joined the PR industry (Yup, he has been always working for the Dark Side despite protestations that he is an idealist and do-gooder) and while in PR worked on stat board accounts, told me that it takes 25 drafts to finalise a media release and the result is always as per first draft prepared by the stat board. What a waste of money.
