It had to happen: a very regular TRE poster and friends joining New Citizen Han Hui Hui in dancing and singing over the graves of the children who died in the Sabah tragedy. He blames the parents for signing the indemnity forms without asking questions. And he sneers and insults them, screaming very joyfully: TOO NAIVE, TOO GULLIBLE AND TRUSTING of those in authorities.
And he got the “thumbs up” from other TRE readers.
How low can these people stoop?
[T]he word scunnered. It’s an adjective from Scotland. If one is scunnered, one is irritated, frustrated, weary – and one is also, somehow, revolted. The person, or thing to which you have “taken a scunner” is not just a pain in your neck, but also operating at or beneath the level of your contempt.

They should remember that the parents’ children died. Let them grieve in peace. Do not happily, sneer and insult them.
Hate PAP until like that meh? Frus at their impotence to do anything about the fact that 60% of S’poreans voted for the PAP in the last GE. Whatever, don’t take the frustrations out on the grieving parents of the dead children.
Never mind, there is such a thing as karma. As the bible says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Pastor Larence Khong, the polo playing magician, learnt this the hard way. He is judgmental about gays, fornicators etc. His daughter had a child out of wedlock. Hoz that for divine retribution? Or being kicked real hard in the balls.

DO ANYONE SIGN INDEMNITY FORM also known as liability exclusion form to any organizer when they go on travel vacations?
Climbing Stairs: Everybody involved in the deaths of the kids at Mt Kinabalu lied. And lied and lied.
If not, IT MEANS the parents too are TOO NAIVE, TOO GULLIBLE AND TRUSTING of those in authorities – the indemnity form sheltering MOE is WARNING CAUTION of ‘KEEP CLEAR – DANGERS AHEAD”.
THEY SHOULD HAVE ASK TO DETAILED CLARITY THE EXTENT DANGERS AND NATURE OF DANGERS ahead if that contingency arise.
REMEMBER – PINOCHIO TOLD MRT COMMUTERS in the Orchard Road MRT debacle to “follow the rules” when crisis erupted WITHOUT THINKING FOR A MOMENT THAT IT IS THE RULES THAT FAILED IS PRECISELY THE REASON/S WHY THE TRAIN BROKE DOWN IN THE DARK TUNNEL TRAPPING THOUSANDS OF COMMUTERS left in the lurch of no rescue.
In the end, they found shoes in the train worn out and posed considerable danger of crash.
HOW CAN SINKIE TRUST POLITICAL GOVERNANCE DIGGING UP UNDERGROUND FOR HUMAN HABITATION AND ECONOMIC ACTIVITY when they will tell us to “follow the rules” in the event of a island-wide cave-in?
WHAT DO YOU THINK, VOTERS???

PARENTS SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT THIS of how PAPpys work in Fernvale – they screwed up the land development award AND TELL PEASANTS THAT YOU DIDN’T READ THE FINE PRINT on the brochure.
Of course, they are CAREFULLY SILENT that nobody in the world sign the fine print IN A BROCHURE when you buy your housing accommodation or a box of CONDOM in a supermarket.
How CUNNING is this?

“Oxygen” claims to be a S’porean who emigrated to Oz a long time ago. He predicts that the PAP will lose the coming GE, big time. And he is predicting that he property markey collapses because he wants to then sneer those who bot homes.
I’ve been told that he is a grad of Nantah who couldn’t get a job here and ended teaching political science in a second or third class uni in Oz. (These unis were nothing more than glorified technical colleges and were extremely left wing in their polotical science departments. In the mid 80s, I worked in Sydney and got to know a second hand book shop owner who was a mature student in one of these unis. He was telling me he was always failed by one lecturer because he refused to accept the leftist line. But because he studied for the fun of it and the social life, he was driving the lecturer who failed him “nuts”.)
I’m glad he migrated. Sneering and mocking the parents of the dead children may be acceptable in his community in Oz, but not here. And here we respect the dead, even one Harry*, as Amos Yee and his doting mum are learning the hard way.
Someone posted on TRE if on;y one quarter of those voting for the PAP could be persuaded to vote against the PAP, the PAP would be defeated.
Fat chance with people like “oxygen” and friends sneering at grieving parents.
With enemies like “oxygen”, Hui Hui and friends, the PAP doesn’t need friends. Maybe “oxygen”, Hui Hui and friends know this, and this fact drives them “nuts” in frustration.
Whatever, no matter how much they hate S’poreans who they think support the PAP, grieving parents should not be mocked or sneered at or blamed.
*It’s interesting that even TRE devoted several articles in its “editorials” to the respectful comments of its readers when Harry moved on. Most of the comments of posters (like “oxygen”) were not respectful but were not highlighted. I tot of ST and its selection of letters for publication: they often don’t represent the letters it receives, only letters with the “right” view were highlighted.
TeamTRE ashamed of the dancing, singing urinating and worse by “oxygen” etc over Harry’s grave?
