PAPs love playing musical chairs..

Transport ministry already cannot run properly ,still want to wayang to boss to take on more roles?😆😆😆🤣🤣🤣

Wonder when the local populace, or in this instance the “viewers”, get sick, tired and shortchanged, … of the same old same old “actors/actresses” playing different roles, every other week, .. in the same shit show !!!

The policy makers and the regulators are almost the same. So where is the protection for citizens? Separation of powers are crucial for the success of a State. The govt. must remain as only the Regulator. We have experienced this kind of governance under LHL. LW is doing the same. We are the most scammed State in the world. How can you keep repeating what has been proven unsuccessful? Loss under Tharman is also pushed under the carpet and why is there a need for the AGC to be seating on the MAS board?

The MAS blamed on currency ‘exchange’ when they loose huge $1,000,000.00 (Millions) of Singaporeans money .

Who was the culprit making decisions?

Who got punished?

Who accepted full responsibility?

They searched high and low, the entire world for the best talent.

At the end of the day the only “talent” that they can find is a millionaire minister in the ruling government. Can anyone in the MAS Board spell “corruption?”

The 🇺🇸 Fed Reserve Board expertly used the interest rates to calibrate, to grow the 🇺🇸 economy, to assist business, to enable their citizens to live with affordable housing, acceptable inflation.

Here the Eff MAS collect their MEGA salaries JUICED out from tax payers money – where is the comfort of taming inflation in SG to assist citizens live LESS OF NIGHTMARE lives?

What is see REPORTs DBS announced MAKING GIGANTIC profits.

The names are all associated with the white ants colony.
Very good and well done SG, I’m sure the citizens will have something to say during the elections.
