Jentrified – The PAP-government shows its claws again and this time they are directed at children and parents. That they would “punish” residents in Punggol East for not voting for them by not providing childcare centres simply reinforces the people’s thinking that they were right not to vote for such a party that places its own survival ahead of the people. How does PAP expect to gain respect and the people’s trust when it continues to behave like despicable dictators and bullies?

“As for childcare centres, Mr Teo said these will be difficult to facilitate as they are no longer the representatives for the area.” – Channel Newsasia, 5 February 2013.

The above comment is made by Teo Ser Luck, Minister of State, Ministry of Trade and Industry and Mayor, North East District – just as Parliament is debating the matter of our future population and how the welfare of Singaporeans are at the core of our government’s policies.

Mr Teo’s remarks also come on the same day that Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office Grace Fu said “marriage and parenthood is central to maintaining a strong Singaporean core.” (See here.) One wonders why it would be “difficult to facilitate” the establishment of childcare centres in Punggol East, since the welfare and well-being of our children should not be subject to the political winds.
