Petition to revoke CECA

Revoke CECA  Click here to the Petition

I have just signed the petition. Every Singaporean must put his signature to this petition to revoke it. It is extremely harmful to Singaporeans and our future existence as a people and country.


Key highlights of the CECA:

ARTICLE 9.3: GENERAL PRINCIPLES FOR GRANT OF TEMPORARY ENTRY

Movement of Natural Persons

Neither Party shall require labour market testing, economic needs testing or other procedures of similar effects as a condition for temporary entry in respect of natural persons upon whom the benefits of this Chapter are conferred.

The CECA enables Indian national PMETs no quota restriction on 127 highly skilled professions in Singapore and even granted spouses or dependants of these Indian nationals to work freely in Singapore.

The above two articles have very serious implications to Singaporean's competitiveness and employability and also to Singapore as a country.

And they are going to expand the CECA. Read more about it in TRE. Here is another quote from the same article,

News 2: More actions taken to enlarge CECA in 2015

Negotiations on to upgrade CECA with India: Singapore

PTI Jul 25, 2015, 09.46PM IST
Singapore is keen to upgrade its existing Comprehensive Economic Co-operation Agreement (CECA) as the East Asian country wants to be a ‘partner’ in economic development here.

“We want to be a partner in India’s economic growth. We want a strategic partnership to deepen bilateral economic and people to people relations,” K Shanmugam, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Law of Singapore, said here today.


For your sake, for your children and grandchildren's sake, this is something you must do.

Hahahahaha.

The fella(s) who started the petition is really putting the cart before the horse.

Of what use is the petition, u tell me lah, if the Sinkie opposition is not ready to be govt, and hence majority (aka 60%)voters are very scared to accidentally vote PAP out?

Get to the root of the problem.
Who is responsible for signing the CECA?
PAP government correct?

So it's better to start a petition to vote out the PAP government.
CECA cannot be revoked as long as PAP is the government and LHL is the Prime Minister and future Senior Minister.

We must vote Opposition to revoke CECA.
True or not?

The Only Way to revoke CECA

is to VOTE IB A NEW REGIME HEADED

BY A NEW PRIME MINISTER

PETITION IS USELESS WITH
THE CURRENT REGIME WHICH
SIGNED THE CECA.

Revoke CECA.
Vote out the PAP government.
Same, same.

CECA.
Is this another LKY legacy?
Just like MRT breakdown and overcrowded hospitals?
Not to mention the nodding parrots in parliament?

Anon 9:14, if you are a Singaporean, you will know how silly is your hahahahha. The CECA is going to destroy the livelihood of many Singaporeans and even Singapore as a country.

Please use your head instead of your mouth to show people how silly you are. This is thousands of times worse than selling Christmas Island or working for your enemies.

YEW r wasting your breath. .......

The flat YEW sleep in, the countless daft sinkies with spurs in their hides sticking out like PORCUPINES, the tap water YEW drink, everything or almost everything is YEW know who's legacy.

The coming GE is also same same. Which other cuntry has GRC system?

Every single road YEW travel everyday is lined with shrubs and plants meticulously planned and institutionalised. Also his legacy.

YEW dun believe YEW name the roads or expressways YEW travel to work everyday and the exact type of shrubs, plants, trees and arrangements of them can be more or less identified like clock work.

This entire artifice is almost all, if not all, his legacy.

Accept it! It's a fact.

Even the language we are now interacting in with each other is his legacy!

His legacy din stop in sinkieland.

Many institutions, policies and developments in China are also his legacy.

But most of the major works on all these are written in Chinese, so majority of sinkies might not know.

Old man also left substantial legacy in ...... ahem ....... the cuntry sinkieland signed CECA with ......

So there YEW have it!

The genius of the man. He left his legacy in two of the largest countries and most populous in Asia and the world and also having arguably the longest recorded history, civilisation, culture.

No other politician in history was able to do that in both cuntries! Not even Qin Shi Huang, Mao Ze Dong, Gandhi, Nehru, Deng Xiao Ping or Zhou En Lai etc

This one mb sinkies can hold their heads high and be proud of.

Sinkieland is a small cruise ship and there is no guarantee it will survive in its present form in the very long run. By seeding in China and India, it is likely to leave a lasting legacy not unlike Confucius, Lao Zi, Zhuang Zi, Meng Zi, Zhu Ge Liang ......etc

The Chinese have a saying "流传百世"。。。。。

A legacy lasting hundreds of generations.

From Confucius till now is only about 200 hundred generations.

If it takes root, old man legacy may last another few hundred generations or another 10,000 years in China history and mb even India's.

He already hinted in his books and many interviews he will let history judge him after his passing.

So even if sinkieland is gone in the future due to its small size and absurdity as a micro nation state, his legacy will most likely outlast sinkieland and continue in China and also mb India.

This man ( giant ) is respected by world leaders from Mao Ze Dong, Zhou En Lai, Deng Xiao Ping, Nixon, Reagan, Thatcher, Kohl, Schimdt, Suharto, Jiang Ze Ming, Zhu Ring Ji, Kissinger, Clintons, Charlie Munger, Hu Jin Tao, Wen Jiang Bao, Xi Jin Ping ...... etc

There YEW have it. An enigmatic giant probably unparallelled in history. "前无古人, 后无来者。"

Unfortunately the same cannot be said of all the paper generals and aristocrats he handpicked to carry on the torch.

Heard somewhere this idea is mooted n proposed by a zorgie boy with a wooden brain with him .
Your Father was sceptical about the idea but later give way I heard.Dun know true or not. I dun believe where got such Khong cum Sinkie around and how does that benefit us by signing and is there a necessity to do so.
Must have benefits right?
Oo bo?
I always tell my la kopi kaki not to call him 卖国賊 anyhow.You all really think he is a 卖国賊?

Anonymous said...

...... continue from above

Everyman is not perfect. Perhaps, one area he could have been more perfect was to choose "No men and women" than "Yes men and women" to carry on the torch.

One good example is to hear a BG (parroting) comparing the labour cost in Philippines and Singapore ..... and attributing it to Globalisation. OMG! How many Gazillion face palms YEW decide! Halo Uncle BG, YEW heard about a place call North Korea? Do Yew think its labour cost is higher than sinkieland? And how globalised is North Korea? This fella took PPE ( Philosophy, Political Science and Economics ) in Oxford. Despite his education and trainings, his argument is far from convincing and probably Yew can get a better argument from A-Level student taking GP or Economics. China's labour cost since their open door policy in 1978 has been always far below sinkieland. Should we then compete with China in terms of labour cost? How about India? Many Indians earn a few USD per day. Should we compete with them on labour cost? On SG50, a handpicked BG suggesting sinkieland compete with Philippines on labour cost? Wonder did old man face palm when he heard of such (silly) comparison. A modern city state economy like sinkieland needs to thrive on COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGE, COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE, NTT, NNTT and even new NNTT ( self innovation ). If all the paper generals and aristocrats are bankrupt of ideas and contemplating to compete in industries such as low cost rice padi farming ( such as in NE Thailand ), low level manufacturing and service industries such as those in 3rd world cuntries like Africa, sinkies and sinkieland indeed must worry sick about their future and keep them wide AWAKE AT NIGHT ........

What should sinkies do in the coming days and weeks to get things RIGHT......?

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

The sad part is LKY's good legacies would be destroyed by this CECA, a poisonous seed sowed by khongcums and he reluctantly acceded.

After LKY there is no one left, no one could do the right thing that is good for Singapore and Singaporeans but for the good of a few khongcums.

400 have signed. have you?
This is the least you can do to protect yourself, your country and the future of your children.

If we do not do something about CECA, our next generation of sinkies will surely find themselves having their surnames such as Ponampalam, Karupiah or Kudusamy etc.etc.

Anonymous said...

I think Anon 9:14 hahahahaha did not actually mean he/she support CECA, but rather the petition is useless. RB 8:27 a.m, perhaps due to his impulsive anger of CECA, had probably misunderstood Anon 9:14's comment.

400,
4000,
Even
40, 000 signatures

You are dealing with deaf frogs.

ℳatilah_$ingapura said...

HI virgo 49 (your post is missing, but I got the email)

I get it, you and your other pork-eating friends don't like the dark exotic meat of the sub continent. Good, go, then stay the fuck away...and you can blow each other for all I care ;-)

More meat for me. That's all. :-))

Eh asshole, the CECA is about unfair and unequal competition. It is an unfair treaty. What has that got to do with colours? You farking racist.

It is a silly agreement signed by imbeciles.

ℳatilah_$ingapura said...

@1021:

>> the CECA is about unfair and unequal competition. <<

Why are you griping? Unfair and unequal competition is the best kind---what did you think "competition" was supposed to be?

>> It is a silly agreement signed by imbeciles. <<

Who cares? I'm benefiting from it. Cheap. Fast. Reasonably good.

The PAP needs to wake up!

Rather than argue endlessly about the possibilities and the current situation, why not invest in removing the root of the problem: namely the PAP?

ℳatilah_$ingapura said...

@ too late, deal's done!, 217:

CECA is only a problem for those people who've allowed themselves to become obsolete and ossified---you know, the entitlement-minded "world owes me a motherfucking living" assholes.

Removing the pap won't change it either: deal's already been done. International court will never allow Singapore to back out.
