Why no speak on fake degrees?


‘Under the PAP, it is inevitable that Singaporean graduates will compete with foreign ones from ‘reputable’ unis, many with bogus degrees. If Singaporeans do not demand accountability from the PAP at the polls, we will have 5 years to repent.’ Phillip Ang
Phillip Ang wrote an article title ‘ Bogus degrees – 5 years to repent if we do nothing’ posted in TRE.
 

In the article one could sense the frustration and exasperation of Phillip Ang, representing the unhappy voices of PMETs that were replaced by the degree mill foreigners. You could imagine him pulling at his hair in anger, that nothing seems to be done, no one seems to care or even want to talk about this sorry state of affair, less want to do anything about it.
 

Indifference, no accountability, tidak apa, seem to be what this issue is all about. Fake degree holders working here and displacing our poor PMETs from their jobs and depriving them from earning a decent income in a decent job is the new normal. There are more serious consequences in medical and engineering fields if the fakes were to be employed to treat the sick and involved in infrastructure projects. Phillip was screaming, those countries are infamous for their corrupt education systems and culture and in producing fake degrees. Didn’t anyone know or want to know?
 

These are valid questions. Everyone knows the shit is here, knows everything is so shitty it smells all over. No need any proof or investigation. Fakes and degree mills are the norm, anything else is an exception. You will have a hard time finding one with genuine degrees and job experience. That is how sick the situation has become that no one dares to poke his little finger in the pile of shit.
 

Then why the reticent, why turning the heads the other way? I venture to ask some employers about the fakes they are hiring. They gave me a cheeky smile. Corruption, corrupt practices? Fake degrees, degree mills, where got? Then with all seriousness he said, when in Rome do as the Romans do. I was taken aback.
 

Isn’t this Rome and the newcomers are to do as we do? That made him laughed crazily like he was going to be delirious. We are in Rome and we need to do and act like them. We have to adapt to be like them. This is Rome, their Rome, they are the Romans and corruption, fakes, cheats are the order of the day.
 

I was stunned by such clarity in perception of the new reality. Those who still believe in honesty, integrity, righteousness are living fossils, behind time and need to go the dodo way. To survive, one has to adapt to the new reality, when in Rome, do as the Romans do.
 

Phillip, you got the idea?

Ya lah, but this has already happened even before 2011! And RB also started his anti PAP policy blogging well before 2011, in 2005, tio bo?

Yet 60% still voted for PAP in GE 2011, and due to the GRC setup, this even enable PAP to win 93% seats with only 60% votes!

So are the unhappy voices of these PMETs, and assuming they voted opposition, a minority of 40% or less?

So will they remain a minority even by next GE, not forgetting that PAP had made many instant Sinkie citizens out of foreign talents, including the publicised fake degree one from IDA included?

And also don't forget there may be many, many more unpublicised fake degree ones turn instant Sinkies which real Sinkies and netizens may not even know!

Hahahahaha.

Of course they gave u a cheeky smile lah. U expect them to admit to u they made lots of money by hiring fakes?

RB, if u become employer, then u know lah. This type of thing, unless u are daft like those jobless PMET, money no enough and loser Sinkies, cannot ask and also no need to ask one.

Their degrees are real.
But maybe their desire to help Singaporeans ... their loyalty to Singaporeans ... maybe ????

Sinkies should read about this pinoy killer nurse in UK who faked his nursing qualifications and killed many patients.

No speak means too many to speak of or check or get rid off.

In other words, like the 'too big to fail banks', cannot dig lah! The whole civil service will collapse, so leave it to fester.

The gov must step up against fake degrees.

Well, they are now practicing 'let's think about it' on this matter too.

I guess Amos Yee case is created to distract the matter of fake degree from the sinkies radar screen. Who knows how many patients are mistreated in public hospitals here which are full of foreign nurses?

Repenting Repenting Repenting said...

what 5 years to repent. I have been repenting for 18 years already, since I lost my job to the Foreign Talons (eagle's claws that grab the meat owner feed him and left behind a scratch wound on owner's hand bleeding. That is why when you feed eagles you have to wear thick animal-skin gloves with long sleeves.)

I am one of the earliest IT Professionals - the Pioneers, so to speak. My boss, MINDEF, retrenched me, asking me to go for 2nd Carrier, because I hit 45 years old.

The Foreign Talon (3 of them) who took over me (one person do 3 jobs) was willing to accept only one-third of my salary. And so many things they had to ask me to teach them. I obliged them in the beginning on things such as how to fix the network cables (such simple things they didn't even have any knowledge - what a joke!) but later I told them go and fly a kite.

It had to repent for 18 years because the 60% who voted for the Party Against People, continue to vote for them. So, what can my single vote in the ocean of 60% water do?

THEY DROWN ME!

I agree. Amos Yee case is turning into somehting like a taiwanese soap opera, running for years without end on a flimsy repetitive plot.

So far, the slapping and story about abuses by the bailor, later the denial, the run in with the press people. The plot thickens with each passing day. What a joke!

Philip Ang voted PAP when things were still rosy for him, getting high pay, fat annual increments, fast promotions.

Only KPKB when things started slowing down for him.

Just like other Sinkies -- only start bitching when they lose their jobs.

Many Sinkies still earning fat salaries, over $6000 per month. All planning to change cars, buy new ones. Willing to pay $1M for condo in outskirts, $1200 psf. Every weekend checkout property adverts & go showrooms.

You expect PAP to be defeated? You have to get all these Sinkies to lose their jobs first. By then you long dead liao.

That's why MRT train breakdown is good.
That's why I hope Desmond Kuek keeps his job.
That's why I hope there will be another round of fare increase.
