An unbelievably, hyper-inflated sense of Self-Importance

This woman is simply unbelievable.

At the time of writing, she has been already fined once by the authorities for not observing the Circuit Breaker measures  ie: refusing to wear a mask in public

And she has yet been found again, refusing to wear a mask, despite being offered one by members of the public.

She defiantly insists that the law does not apply to her as she is a "Sovereign", and that she "has nothing to with the police."

How unbelievably arrogant of her to BELIEVE that she is ABOVE THE LAW in Singapore, at a time where the Covid-19 is wreaking havoc with our country and all of our lives.

Well, too bad for you.

Because you will find out that whatever nonsense you believe about your perceived "sovereignty" , it has no standing whatsoever in the eyes of the law in Singapore.

Because you will find out that while Citizenship comes with its privileges and benefits, it also comes with many obligations, of which one of most basic, is to obey the law.

Because while you may believe that you have nothing to do with the police, the police will definitely have plenty to do with you.

And for willfully breaking the law repeatedly, especially at a time of crisis, you will have to face the consequences of your most irresponsible actions.

Oh, and by the way, if you truly believe that you are "sovereign", then make sure you:

(a) Return the $600 covid assistance from the SG Govt.
(b) Don't use your Singapore Passport. In fact, you should return it.
(c) Don't use any of the SG Govt subsidies for housing, healthcare and education. Make sure you pay the full, un-subsidize rate for any govt service you use.
(d) Since you are a woman, make sure you don't ever claim or use any paternity benefits, including the 16-weeks of paid maternity leave.

In fact, put your money where your mouth is. Just renounce your citizenship and leave Singapore all together.

Go and be "sovereign" all you want in international waters lah. Because EVEN IF you renounce your SG citizenship, as long as you are in Singapore, you are still subject to our laws.

Alex Tan Zhixiang is a cesspool of self-inflicted bitterness and hatred

Does anyone actually think that Alex Tan is capable of writing anything unbiased against Singapore?

The Real Singapore, Straits/State Times Review, etc etc... all these are the hatred-filled cesspools in which Alex Tan manufactures tall tales filled with illogical reasoning  from his deranged mind.

Is this the end of States Times Review?

Well, well, who would have thought that this day would finally come so soon?.

States Times Review (STR), the website  cesspool of bullshit, fake news and twisted lies sprouted by one Alex Tan Zhixiang is no longer accessible in Singapore as of 9 Nov 2018.

On 5 Nov 2018, Alex Tan had published an article titled "Lee Hsien Loong becomes 1MDB’s key investigation target" on STR.  The article made several serious allegations about PM Lee and the IMBD scandal.

Alex Tan alleged that Malaysia had signed several unfair agreements with Singapore in exchange for Singapore banks’ assistance in laundering the funds of 1MDB.

Alex Tan also claimed that the editor of Sarawak Report, Ms Clare Rewcastle, had revealed in an interview with Malaysian media that "Singapore is one of the key investigation targets, alongside Switzerland and United States" in the 1MDB scandal.

This claim was categorically rejected by Sarawak Report who responded to this claim on Thursday by calling it "erroneous" and disowned the remarks. It also sought a correction from States Times Review. "SR has not given any such interview and has not written on this subject," Sarawak Report said in a Facebook post.

Further more, SR had also acknowledged the role that MAS had played in "unravelling corruption linked to the fund"

Alex Tan was ordered take down the STR article by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) by 5pm on 9 Nov, failing which IMDA would then direct Internet Service Providers to restrict access to the site.

Obviously, Alex Tan refused to do so

Subsequently, STR was blocked after the deadline lapsed. 

Soon after, Alex Tan announced on the STR Facebook page that the "States Times Review Facebook page will be shut down "two weeks from now" while the website will remain until the end of the next General Elections." 

Is this the really last time that we will hear from Alex Tan? 

Well, let's see how trust worthy Alex Tan's words are from his track record social media posts.

Nope, he definitely didn't keep to his word on this. 

Freedom of Speech? Where got?

Anyway, it is very unlikely that this will be the last we hear from Alex Tan.

He is simply too self-delusional and egotistical to give it up. It will be a matter of time before Alex Tan returns to pollute cyberspace with his delusional bullshit again.

But in the meantime, please always fact-check what you read on the Internet before you get conned or lied to. Don't let yourself be made a fool.

Helping the Merdeka Generation

3 June 1959: The then newly elected Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew told a huge rally crowd at the Padang: "Once in a long while in the history of a people, there comes a moment of great change. Tonight is such a moment in our lives." And he lead the rally in shouting "Merdeka!"

PA Kopi Talk, 14 Oct 2018

The video clip above is from the ‘PA Kopi Talk’ held on 14 Oct 2018. PM Lee was responding to a question about the Merdeka Generation package that was announced earlier during the 2018 National Day Rally. 

Here are some key takeaways:
  • Similar to the Pioneer Generation Package, the Merdeka Generation (MG) Package will be funded from the reserves that are built up from the CURRENT term of Govt. 
  • MG Package funding is expected to last the lifetime of the MG. The future Govt and Tax payers will NOT have to bear the cost burden of the MG Package. 
  • Contrary to popular belief, PM Lee does not know if there will be future similar packages. That is for the future Govt to decide. 

About the Merdeka Generation Package
  • Announced by PM Lee at the 2018 National Day Rally (See here
  • The Merdeka Generation refers to Singaporeans who were born in the 1950s. They lived through “battles and upheavals” and also witnessed how their parents “scraped and slogged” for them. 
  • The men were among the earliest batches called up for National Service. They formed the first of the SAF. Many, especially the girls, didn't complete their education. They came out to work early, to support the family and younger siblings. All started working when wages were still low. 
  • The Merdeka Generation today would be in their 60s. Today most would have either left the workforce, or will soon be retiring. Many have similar healthcare concerns as the pioneers. They are looking at their CPF (Central Provident Fund) savings and Medisave accounts and are worried about having enough for their medical needs as they grow older. 
  • MG Package is intended to help with the medical expenses of the estimated 500,000 Singaporeans of the Merdeka generation. 
  • MG Package details will be announced in 2019 but it is expected to include outpatient subsidies, Medisave top ups, premium subsidies for the MediShield Life insurance scheme and payouts for long term care.

A low life psychopathic despicable leech

So in the mist of the Workers' Party MPs' civil case over the gross mismanagement of AHTC /AHPETC, there appears to be some in-fighting amongst the anti-PAP/opposition quarter - specifically between Goh Meng Seng and Alex Tan Zhixiang.

You can read Goh's full Facebook post below. 

Goh is not very far off from the truth when he says that Alex Tan, is "...just whipping up irrational, sensational and emotional anti PAP ranting to leech on those hardcore opposition supporters to earn money via his website, Statestime Review."

Just goes to show, even amongst the die-hard Opposition in Singapore, Alex Tan is considered to be a pariah.

It doesn't matter which political party or ideology you support. What is most needed in Singapore's political discourse is not shrill irrational voices shouting but a dispassionate debate which is based on only verifiable facts.

Despicable leeches like Alex Tan who is pretending to be an opposition activist fighting for Singapore's well-being but in reality he is spreading fake, misleading and sensational news and commentary so that he can make money off web advertisements on his site. The more angry and irrational he can make people, the more internet traffic (and hence more web ad revenue)  he can attract to his site.

There's nothing wrong if you don't like and don't support the PAP govt.

But you should still keep a clear unbiased mind, look at verifiable facts from independent, reliable sources (NOT states times review) before you make a judgement or criticize. Don't be mislead or trick by people with dubious personal agendas.

What the Singapore Govt has been doing to improve the lives of all Singaporeans

Ever wondered what the Singapore Govt is doing to improve the lives of all Singaporeans?

Have a listen to this speech by PM Lee. This was a speech made at the PA's Kopi Talk dialogue session. (See here for PM Lee's FB post).

It is worth your time (just 24mins) to just listen and judge for yourself if the PAP has delivered, and is continuing to deliver on its election promise- With you, For you, For Singapore.
