Sense And Nonsense by Tan Bah Bah

Suddenly concerned Singaporeans are being confronted by four developments that seem to be cropping up almost simultaneously. One – affordability of Housing and Development Board flats and as part of it, the land issue – is a bugbear that has been around for a while. Second is the Singapore Media Trust massaged data problem. Third is the Keppel O & M corruption scandal. All these three will be discussed in Parliament this coming week.

“This case is set to go down in history as a record settlement for a cross-border corruption probe involving a Singapore-listed entity.” “The warnings were in lieu of prosecution for offences punishable under the Prevention of Corruption Act. This is where, on surface at least, Singapore’s much vaunted zero-tolerance policy on corruption seems at odds with KOM’s conduct. Basically, are we having double standards – one set of rules here in Singapore and another for dealings in another country? Without saying yes or no, I would make this point: this world is no Disneyland. {ls Singapore sometimes has to trade with the devil to survive.

When I am working on behalf of Grab, I will have to ensure that Grab’s interests are safeguarded.' She’s not working for Grab in just any capacity, but as head of public policy. Would be better to take on such a role once one has retired from public life, not when one is an active public servant. How is ther my conflict taking money with left hand and taking money with the right hand at the same time? If they could grab with their feet they would do it as well! Bullshyt~
