Thanks for blogging about this Molly. I was giving this only a cursory glance until I read this post. Will go and dig up the material and read it.

That would be good. For Molly is no constitutional expert, unlike Prof Thio. :)

Casting pearls or even diamonds that serve no purposes is a waste of time. Me believe you could live and contribute more meaningfully in any third world country and will be much happier too, regards scb.

Re: If you must insist, Molly

Insist on?

Thank you.

Re: Masterful analysis.

Well, thank you too.

One other observation

(Anonymous)
further to your post (which i totally agree :P) i think we should also start realising that Singapore's parliamentary proceedings are no more than a show, a wayang (to be more Singaporean). have we ever heard of any proposal that hasn't passed?

i sometimes wonder why people actually bother watching "today in parliament" (which incidentally, i think should be called, "today's wayang") when we know the outcome even before they open their mouths.

I love to watch in parliament because I get to shout at the TV some nice expletive that I cannot use during daytime at work.

"What sick logic is that?!"
"Total B.S."
"Liar!"
etc.

It is a nice way to vent frustration against the PAP.

who are the five mps who dared not support the leegime? were they sitting on the fence, SLEEPING, ABSENT (due to "more important" engagements) or what???

yeah, everybody shld watch the video clip in which jaya-boy tried comically to counter-argue with sylvia-gal. honestly, you will get a good laugh and understand why the 154th had to control damage with the words "ticked off"...

btw, good job, pap! you'll end up cementing your power on paper and losing even more trust in pple... LOL

When people get paid million dollars so easily, the mind just goes mechanic.

I think this Law Minister needs a mental check up.

And pleasssse, invoking old Bogeyman, is the cheapest shot of an unprogressive mind. Just like the 'tang kee' jumping at the prospect of Chinese converting to other religions. Dear Jaya, can he really stop the cognitive evolution. It's better off if he remains extinct like a dinosaur

Singaporeans Are Treated As Idiots.....by who else!!!

(Anonymous)
Like i have confirmed many many times, WE ARE TREATED SIMPLY AS IDIOTS.....but are we? Even the kopi gia knows this....

Well done Molly, to create such awareness amongst Singaporeans! This is a start to new things to come and we need people like you to create such awareness, though sometimes bimbotic :P, but rest assured Molly we are NOT IDIOTS!!!

Re: Singaporeans Are Treated As Idiots.....by who else!!!

By idiotic, moronic SINGAPOREANS lah !

A well-written rebuttal indeed! An excellent piece of work!

The opening of the British archive files certainly shed a lot of light on what actually happened during the 50s & 60s. Now we have prove of how power was abused and history was re-written accordingly. At least our generation have the benefit of the records to enlighten us and provide a 2voice. I wonder what would happen to our future generation. From the late 80s to the early 2000 we have only one discourse, that of the ruling elite. An elite which prides itself to declare that the golden age is here as in the history of the dynasties before. But I believe like the British archives, the blogshere with its discourse will serve as a alternative voice to record history from the neutral perspective, provided such articles like Molly's are achived.

end of the day, it all rests on 'good men'. those in powers are assuring you they are 'good' sin free men. therefore, you can trust them to do the right thing in your interests.

hmm..i think we are perhaps the only nation who is blessed with such leadership. extraordinary men incapable of wrong, misjudgement and malice. probably not born the usual way.

even the carperter when praised for being 'good' was quick to dismiss it and said: none is good except God.

there is no greater destruction in people's lives than a fallacy engineered and selfishly defended.

We are blessed with the best leadership in the world! We need to pay ministers high salaries to maintain their incorruptibility; then because they are incorruptible, we can implement policies/amendments that are otherwise questionable; then because we implement these kind of policies, all the more we need leaders with integrity and so we have to pay them high salaries.

It goes round and round in a perfect circle.

Sylvia's Lim Speech & Jayakumar Snapping

(Anonymous)
Jayakumar cannot answer Slyvia's question then snap and try to divert by bringing out old history and "conspiracy theory" for what ??? Cannot answer means cannot answer.

Then he bring out dunno what ranking which I never seen or heard before. I only remember our judicial system rank below Hong Kong. Our ranking maybe good for foreigners but not Singaporeans.

Parliament is a place to ask questions and voice concerns or else for what, is Jayakumar getting old by snapping this way?

We all know the President is quite useless in Singapore because he needs to be supported by ruling party.

Slyvia's concerns are valid and legitimate. Any person nominated by PM will of course feel his position is owed to the PM and thus decision-making can be biased.

Who will check decision-making in the judicial system is not biased ??

Let the judicial system pick their own nominees.

If everthing can depend on trust, integrity, reputation and qualifications, then what for need systems, police and auditors ??

What Jayakumar say sets a very dangerous precedent for the future.

We have seen many instances people in powerful, rich and comfortable positions can be corrupt and abusive. Marcos, Suharto, Worldcom, Enron, NKF etc because the systems were not designed to check them.

Re: Sylvia's Lim Speech & Jayakumar Snapping

Oppose and you are being paranoid and coming up with conspiracy theories.

As the song goes, "Just believe, just believe..."

do you realise they dont say what they mean in plain honest language in the house? they killed honesty in this country by making use of reprisal laws to force even oppositions to speak in 'tongues'( mousy polite somemore). so much so, they dont even have a clue as to what they were saying let alone the public( how many actually understand their 'tongues'?)

it takes someone like a mocking molly to translate an OFFENSIVE message. but i suspect, rockson is by far a better unofficial communicator considering his following. he probably can say it like it is and mean it like it is that the whole country can relate and follow.

fuck, there is so much fear in this country that there is hardly any honesty in politics anymore( i am refering to those in the forefront of politics)

not only has the fire been doused, they sound like polite frogs too.

I guess the opposition can either choose to be tactical or to go forward like Dr. Chee. It's not necessarily a bad thing if people are more sensitive readers and listeners and can see the message for themselves, e.g. instead of being taken in by the JBJ-conspiracy ruse, people can look more carefully at what Sylvia is saying. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case.

Uniquely Singapore

(Anonymous)
"Once [the Prime Minister] has nominated two members and they're appointed, his role ends there. Neither he nor the other nominating members can direct the nominees to act or decide in any particular manner."

This is as good as saying: "Once I put my wife (feel free to guess who) as the CEO of Tema***k, my role ends there. Neither myself nor anyone can direct her to act or decide in any particular manner."

Re: Uniquely Singapore

Saying that is considered good enough. The public has a responsibility to trust the speeches of super extraordinary talents.

perhaps it is time...

(Anonymous)
perhaps it is time to find a way to get the government to be about the people, not the office, as the old say goes, "absolute power, corrupts absolutely"

when people are at this stage i'm afraid one day, this country which i was born in but hate so much is going to become like another north korea, ruled by the lee family.

how far are we away from that? i'm not sure, but every eyar it seems that there is a reduction in the civil liberties ordinary singaporeans currently have. and the people do not have a voice to speak out to, to be heard by.

pretty much, i'm out of here as soon as i can to find another life for myself away from here, i;d go too if i were you all, before it gets worse, for your children, and your children's children.

i'm posting anaonymously due to myself being on the dissidents to watch out for list in the past, so please, dont be insulted. i'l check by again for replies or anything.

Re: perhaps it is time...

What about North Korea? Staying in Singapore, we do not get to know much of N Korea as the medias do not report much about that country. You used N Korea as though there are murders, robberies, rapes and all kinds of sinful happenings. I am not aware of those things happening maybe because of lack of informations but I do know that Communist Ruled Countries are so safe that most do not have to secure their homes to keep away undesirables. In squeaky clean Singapore, it seems that theft, cigarette smugglings, vices and recently homicides are increasing in frequencies. Would you care to enlighten me?

hello mollymeek

(Anonymous)
I always feel miserable after reading anti-govt stuff that is breathtakingly well-argued, because nothing's going to change, is it? ah well. i wish material like this is more accessible on newspapers. thank you :)

Re: hello mollymeek

(Anonymous)
Maybe for you and your well-heeled lifetsyle. The fact that people who actually believe that nothing will change is what the PAP is trying to instill and there is proof of their success everywhere.
