On the contrary cybernuts, Desmond did a great job

In Infrastructure, S'pore Inc on 20/11/2017 at 5:59 am

Look at his track record from 2012 to 2015 and to now sack him would show that the PAP are a bunch of ingrates like the TRE cybernuts and rats (From conception to death, the PAP looks after S’poreans),

He was appointed CEO of SMRT after two major problems in December 2011 that affected 250,000 commuters and which resulted in a public inquiry.

From his appointment till April 2016, there were no major cock ups bar one major whopper just before GE 2015. This was on 7 July 2015 and affected the North -South and East-West lines. 500,000 commuters were affected.

But I suppose S’porean voters didn’t think about this massive-cock up when they voted on 11 September 2015, a month and a half later. I suppose that they were really happy that commuters had reliable service from 2012 till 6 July, and from 8 July till election day. They thought it was one-off event.

Whatever, they gave the PAP a really overwhelming mandate of 70% (10 more points from 2011 GE, held before the December train cock-up.)

What I’m saying is that Desmond ensured that SMRT service did not become an election issue that could cost the PAP votes.

Things only started going wrong after some trainees died in an avoidable accident in March 2016.

There was a real problem on 25 April 2016 affecting the North -South and East-West lines, parts of the Circle Line, and the Bukit Panjang LRT

Then this year there were the October flooded tunnels and then the 15 November train crash.

Maybe the deaths in March 2016 of some trainees have something to do with these problems? Their spirits need to be appeased?

Time to call in the bomohs? Maybe ex SMRT director Hali, now president (#notmypresident protest and me), can recommend one? More on Hali’s judgement between 2007 -2011/ Meritocracy? What meritocracy?

Now if he fails to call in the bomohs, he should be fired. What do You think?

Mugabe ak kah leow with S’porean authorities?

Further to this Mugabe coming here?, seems he ak kah leow with S’porean authorities.

Extract from another BBC report

The Mugabe family own property in Malaysia, South Africa and possibly Dubai – but Africa-watchers say the patriarch may aim for Singapore.

“He’s got numerous options,” observes Dr Phil Clark, an African politics specialist at the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).

“He’s been going [to Singapore] a lot for medical treatment for more than a decade now, and he seems to have a pretty good relationship with the Singaporean authorities.”

Amos got point on Christianity and Islam

In Uncategorized on 19/11/2017 at 7:08 am

Amos didn’t say this, but he could have.

Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus. There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here, maybe just a little bit unusual.

Amos is well known for being relaxed about child sex, and for attacking Islam and our dearly beloved Harry. In the process, it has been widely forgotten that he also attacks Christianity and the above would have right up his street.

No it wasn’t Amos but this was said by Jim Zeigler, the Alabama State Auditor, to the Washington Examiner,  the BBC reports that Jim Zeigler is a Christian. He was defending another Christian who has been accused of trying to have sex with teenagers. The other Christian who denies the allegations, wants to be a US senator for Alabama, a US state full of Christians. He’s the favourite to win, really.

One really cannot blame Amos for dissing Christianity with Christians like these, just like one fault Amos for dissing Islam.

Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in Tuesday’s deadly New York City truck attack “appears to have been inspired by violent Isis videos depicting beheadings and shootings, according to prosecutors,” reports the Guardian.

The incident is strongly reminiscent of recent terror attacks in Europe, where vehicles were used as effective weapons against unarmed crowds. In France, 86 people were killed and more than 400 injured by a single lorry near the seafront at Nice, in 2016. In Berlin, 12 were killed and more than 50 injured by a similar attack last December. Vehicles have also been used to plough into crowds in London and in Barcelona …

a publication produced by IS suggested to its supporters living in the West that they use their cars to run over civilians.

Whatever, let’s give thanks to the PAP for having the foresight to have a Muslim president: Why PAP thinks we need a Malay president?
