Why “Kee Chiu” got renamed “Kee Chui”

Chan Kee Chui’s (aka Chan Kee Chiu’s) latest attempts to talk cock, sing song

======================

See Chris K’s comments reported in https://www.theonlinecitizen.com/2018/02/25/chan-chun-sing-says-severe-implications-if-singapore-does-not-have-sufficient-reserves-but-just-how-much-is-enough/)

===================================================

reminded me that when TRE republished Kidding me? Kee Chui potential PM? He from RI? there were a few cybernuts (Or PAP IBs?) who tried to slime me by pointing out that I should be using “Kee Chiu” and not “Kee Chui”, pointing out that Chan’s nick-name is Kee Chiu because he liked to use the term once upon his time. I have no objection to this criticism.

But they went on to say that I didn’t know the difference between  the tewo terms  because I wasn’t S’porean. Excuse me must know Hokkien to be S’porean isit?

Whatever if they had any brains (which they don’t being ratty anti-pAP cybernuts or PAP IBs), these guys should know that “Kee Chui” is now a more apt nick-name for him based on his verbal gaffes.

Beng pek ma?

And while focusing on his need for strong reserves, it seems critics missed this gaffe

In a democratic society, few governments will take this approach, informing citizens about a tax increase a few years beforehand.

We are a “democratic society” meh?

Worse, maybe even the cybenuts, and critics like TOC and Chris K believe that S’pore is a “democratic society”. If so what weed are they smoking? To be fair to them, maybe the PAP has put something, other than recycled water, into the water S’poreans drink.

My view? We are not a “democratic society”: The PAP way? is the CCP way.

Kidding me? Kee Chui potential PM? He from RI?

In Political governance on 12/02/2018 at 9:40 am

The academics and the anti-PAP cybernuts who claim that Kee Chui is likely to be the next PM must either be really stupid, or really trying to sien us?

I mean who can reasonably conclude that Kee Chui is the material that PMs can be made off?

Two weeks ago, High Court judge See Kee Oon questioned an appellant’s use of a letter from her MP Lam Pin Min (Sengkang West) to play down the offence she was convicted of. (Juz wondering? MP White Horse? Or spouse White Horse or grassroots tua kee?

Kee Chui, Minister and Chief Whip, was then quoted by ST as saying that the PAP has “no specific governing rules” on the sending of MP letters to the courts or other agencies or ministries.

A retired district judge, Mr Low Wee Ping, who was the Registrar of the Subordinate Courts and Supreme Court in the 1980s, in a letter to ST, said one Harry Lee had instructed all MPs, in writing, that they should not write such letters to the courts.

Mr Lee was also of the view that if the MP’s constituent resident perceived his sentence imposed by the court as lenient, he might attribute it solely to the MP’s letter, and, therefore, feel obligated or grateful to vote for the MP in an election wrote

Also

MPs approached by TODAY, such as West Coast GRC MP Patrick Tay, said they are aware of the “long-standing practice” for PAP MPs not to write to the courts on behalf of their constituents*.

So what does Kee Chui do? Scholar and ex-SAF commander makes a U-turn on PAP MPs writing to court.

In his letter to PAP MPs on Friday, Mr Chan wrote that PAP MPs have, “as a norm” over the years, refrained from writing to the Courts on behalf of their constituents.

PAP MPs, he said, “must not do anything that may give rise to any misperception that they can influence or interfere in the judicial process”.

“When approached by constituents over matters that come before the Courts, PAP MPs may write to the Ministry of Law (on procedural issues) and the Attorney-General’s Chambers (on prosecutorial issues). This has been the general practice, and will remain so,” he added.

In his letter, Mr Chan reminded his fellow PAP MPs that the courts have “clear and strict procedures to uphold the independence and integrity of the judicial process”, and are in the best position to evaluate the evidence and merits of a case.

He added: “The separation of powers has never been in question even when the courts have received a letter from an MP, directly or indirectly. Nevertheless, to avoid any doubt or public misperception, may I remind PAP MPs not to write to the Courts on behalf of their constituents.”

Today

Like that can become SAF commander and minster meh?


Kee Chui’s other major cock-up

PAP: Chinese defecate in public, Indians clean up

Remember PM signaled him to listen to how a minister should explain things?

If he were ytansport minister, S’pore would suffer a catastrophic breakdown of train services, and Changi airport would close.

________________________________________________________

And PM in waiting? Like that can be RI boy? But then he was only in RI for Pre U. Even TLK was in RI for four years. But even in RI for six yrs is no guarantee of not being a cock: think TJS.

Like that cybernut should earn millions.


*OK, OK this appeared after he wrote letter but if these MPs knew, how come Kee Chui didn’t know?

Putting Kee Chiu in his place

In Uncategorized on 29/02/2016 at 12:43 pm

When addressing university students, minister-without-portfolio and NTUC chief Chan Chun Sing chided S’poreans for being obsessed with academic grades.

He cited the example of the management team at the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), saying they do not have straights As results, and Singaporeans should emulate them by constantly thinking about “who is going to take their lunch”.

He grumbled,

I spoke to group of parents who said the system was too difficult, too rigid, too much tuition… So I asked, ‘Will you stop sending your son to tuition?’ And they said yes, they will stop if their neighbours stop first.

…Don’t become a yardstick society in which we aimlessly, blindly chase goals regardless of what we’re good at.

…This is something I fear for our society – where everyone goes after the same thing, the same yardstick, and we end up in what sociologists call a ‘prisoner’s dilemma’.

But the former SAF scholar and Chief of Army also talked about Singapore’s brand of “meritocracy” by citing himself as an example of “a single-parent family child” attaining success.

But what if he hadn’t scored good grades? As a TRE reader gvbhunjimk put it: Kee Chiu, in the first place you yourself try going to ITE/stop schooling right after secondary school/study in private see if you today still can get to become a minister and paper general with same speed/possible at all. If it can, then you come talk to us.

Another reader skin so thick put it this way: Why does this toy soldier general thinks he can lecture against the obsession with grades when it is his grades that got him the OMS & PS? Did he not himself all out pursue his quest for academic excellence = top grades in his salad days, knowing a scholarship will get him and his family out of the working class enclave of Macpherson HDB estate?

If he doesn’t feel awkward about giving such advice, there is something wrong about him. Maybe, as i see it, he came from the bottom 10%, single parent family, poor, no social status, no power, no authority, a nobody. Once he became a scholar, overnight, and on a fast track, everything changed for him. Now he has money, power, authority, career, political star. In between, there is a chasm, from nothing to everything. Perhaps it explains why sometimes, he seems … nouveau riche.

People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Someone who benefited (and still benefis) from the PAP administration’s fixation with academic results, should not tell “strivers” not to strive for similar excellence. Is he trying to close the door after he has become part of the natutal aristocracy?  Whatever, his remarks smack of hyprocisy and invites ridicule. Not the way to bcome a future PM or even a DPM.

Leave the clowning to s/o JBJ, Dr Chee or M Ravi.

Some other good comments by TRE readers

Xmen: The whole education system (e.g. streaming, admissions) is based on grades. What is he talking about?

eltmg: Monetary Authority of Singapore study of the top echelons, does this includes our GLCs, GICs, stat boards, cabinet ministers?

Which parents does not want to groom their children for the opportunity to have the career path you are on?

Mr Chan, pls share with us what you need to do to get a SAF scholarship. This would be a great guide to all parents in Singapore.

nihon: how stupid can he be?

first, he said, ‘the poor need concern not money.’

now, ‘no need 4 As’. so can psc award scholahsleep without considering the grades? hypocrite.

no one has 4 As at mas cos they are the older generation, where 2 As and 2 Bs could score a scholahsleep.

now, 4 As also can’t get any awards, unless with distinctions in s papers and eca/cca scores.

unless you belong …

people has broken the A level code. its just a rote learning exercise. the whole system does not develop thinkers, innovators and entrepreneurs. only exam smart clowns and useless bookworms.

 

 

PAP: Missed one, bagged one?

Nice to read that a S’porean is going to be head of UBS here. UBS Bank has appointed Mr Edmund Koh as its Singapore country head and CEO of its Singapore wealth management division. He will also become a member of the UBS Global Wealth Management Executive Committee. He assumes his responsibilities at the bank early next year.

For all its investment bank problems, UBS’ wealth management business is second to none internationally, and in Asia. In Asia, HK and S’pore are the two crown jewels in UBS’ wealth mgt division.

Mr Koh was until recently the president of Ta Chong Bank in Taiwan. He was reorganising the bank for US private equity group, Carlyle. He was once head of regional consumer banking group at DBS Bank’s consumer lending business in Asia and the CEO of Prudential Assurance Company here.

A few years ago, there were stories that Edmund Koh tried, but failed to become a PAP candidate MP.

So with parly opening tomorrow, I tot it was a suitable time to remind S’poreans of these rumours. In the new batch of MPs, we got “I didn’t do NS” Puthucheary, and  “I don’t know what to say” Tin. Give me an Edmund Koh anytime over people like Puthucheary and Tin.

Having said that, I must say I’m getting gd vibes abt “Kee Chiu” Chan. He is talking the talk at the Ministry for Community Development, Youth and Sports when it comes to welfare. He is also walking the walk. I understand the MCYS homepage has been revamped and now lists all the welfare schemes http://app1.mcys.gov.sg/Assistance.aspx?tid=115 . The absence of this list previously gave rise to suspicious abt whether the government wanted to make it difficult to get welfare.

I didn’t have a gd impression of him because of his comments on the Internet, his speech abt the Chinese miners’ republic, and his behaviour when the PAP was caught busing supporters to a rally. But if he continues what he is saying and doing abt welfare, I’ll say “Kee Chiu Hoy Say leh”
