It was a bad omen for Singapore PAP government

Non dumbo SGs can safely tell off this PAP Administration why recent years on this Smart Nation one can notice there are more and increased incidents of home fires, accidents, against traffic driving, crashing accidents due to red lights violations, suicides, street fightings, food hygiene VIOLATIONS, I T, bank Scams – obviously QUITE PREDICTABLE this PAP Administration CERTAINLY avoid informing us they DO NOT COLLECT SUCH STATISTICS.

And EVEN THE PAP Administration CONTROLLED but PAID for by citizens, EXPENSES AND RUNNING costs of PAP mouth piece WOULD BLUNTLY NOT Investigate All these.
