Khaw Boon Wan got another job waiting for him

Khaw Boon Wan must thank his colleagues for providing all the opportunities to make him look so good, by digging holes for him to fill and to be carried around like the hero that is there at the right time to save a bad situation. The housing problems in Singapore were so classic that it must be the best case study of how a govt can turn a good situation into the biggest flop in public housing. And it did not need a genius to turn it around. Surprisingly no other ministers was confident or smart enough to see the opportunity to turn it around, and for this credit must go to Boon Wan to seize the moment, to make it right.

Now with the Transport Ministry facing a crisis with all the super talented ministers failing one after another, it would be foolhardy for any minister to volunteer for this job.  Boon Wan ended with this unenviable task to right a very difficult task. This one I must admit would test his mettle in working out a sustainable long term solution.

Should Boon Wan come up on top in the Transport Ministry, he has another job waiting for him urgently. He would be badly needed in the Health Ministry this time to stop the rot. An outbreak of hepatitis C and causing so many death is just unbelievable and unacceptable in Singapore. This kind of thing is quite normal in 3rd World countries when basic hygiene, equipment, facilities and well trained medical staff are lacking. How could it happen in our everything world class, everything so expensive hospital? Are we that much different from the 3rd World village medical standard?

And as expected, we have no talents to deal with such a bad situation and the MOH is calling for foreign experts to find out why and to provide the solutions. I would like to suggest the academia and professional bodies to decorate our local talents with more beautiful titles, strings of them, to add glory and colour to their credentials so that they will be invited to sit on such expert boards to solve our problems. They may also be invited to solve problems of other countries as experts. Give them more and better titles as specialists, experts, emeritus or whatsoever, to walk around and be noticed.

Boon Wan better get his job in the Transport Ministry done quickly as he is badly needed, urgently needed in the Health Ministry. This is a job waiting for him, the master problem solver, the minister with all the answers when other ministers are found wanting.

KBW don't give a shit of what military rank Desmond Kuek was holding therefore he can get things done the way he wanted because he is the "boss". Liu is also a military man, he has to give "face" to Kuek (rank higher than him). This may be the reason he resigned because he cannot get things done the way he wanted.

He previously screwed up at the Health Ministry with his reluctance to build more hospitals, and you want him back there? He wants to send you and your parents to Johor, and you still want him to look after you when you retarded, oops, retire?

I think PM Lee's government needs a Coordinating Minister for "Commissions of Inquiry".
- we seem to need a lot of these types of COIs over the last 10 years

Since the majority of the residents in Singapore are from 3rd world countries
(counting the foreign workers and maids and PMETs)
- it is only logical to classify Singapore as a 3rd World country
- we should apply to the United Nations for foreign aid

There were two massive cases of Hepatitis C outbreaks in USA
- it seems both cases involve Alien doctors from 3rd world countries

Do we need a Coordinating Minister to help coordinate the Coordinating Ministers?
- oh. sorry.
- the Prime Minister is suppose to coordinate the Coordinating Ministers.

Then what are the Deputy Ministers for ah?

Just wondering if those that died and affected by the Hepatitis C due to complacency and negligence of the Healthcare Staff can sue the Hospital for compensations.

/// .. Germany's untouchable until recently Iron Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing of a "national disaster" at home, where politicians across the spectrum increasingly demand shuttering the borders as Germany expects up to one million migrants this year, or else hinting it will be Merkel's scalp. ///

Germany already kpkb even before 1 million refugees target is met.
What about tiny Singapore?

Are we bigger and better than Germany?
Can we take more that 5 million ... Alien maids, foreign workers, PMETs, PRs and new citizens?

Is our train system broken?
Is our hospital system broken?
Is PAP's ability to manage broken?

70%
What do you think?

Sweden: From Crippling Poverty to Unheralded Prosperity Through Laissez-Faire Capitalism
-------------------------------------
Some 250 years ago, the area we recognize now as “Sweden” was a frozen tundra inhabited by a huddled mass of starving peasants.
Their lives were tightly controlled by a series of kings, aristocrats, and other men of artificially high esteem.

As award-winning author, Johan Norberg points out in this excellent piece on Sweden, it took a series of classically-liberal minded revolutionaries to wrestle control from the elites and put Sweden on a path to prosperity.


What about Singapore?
When will 70% vote Opposition to wrestle control from the PAP elites and aristocrats;
- and put Singaporeans on a path of prosperity?

Singapore got no problems with foreigners lah. We have the most brilliant leaders in charge and they will know how to assimilate and integrate them with Singaporeans. And one strange thing, any foreigner coming here will become good and will not give problem to Singapore or Singaporeans.

I think drinking Newater must be the reason. This Newater can make every foreigner to be like Singaporeans, to like and love Singaporeans.

Health minister?!?! KBW already did that job before -- he's not interested in re-doing that job now.

Anyway he was the fucker who corporatized all the govt hospitals --- turn them from civil service stat boards into bastardised semi-private organisations where the emphasis is on cost recovery & maximise profits from A-class & B1-class patients, as well as promoting health tourism to rich Indoes, Burmese, Peenoys, Cheenas, Ahnehs.

Under that fucker, the total number of C-class & B2-class beds in Singapore shrank by 20%, declaring that Sinkies prefer to pay more for higher class service.

He was also the fucker to start mass recruitment of nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, pharmacists, radiologists, etc from 3rd world countries. Do you know that now, every 3 months MOH together with 2-3 general hospitals will fly over to 3rd world countries like Philippines, China, Burma, India to recruit healthcare workers --- nurses, doctors, allied health people.

It has come to the point where angmoh physiotherapists from Oz & UK are fighting to be selected to work in our general hospitals, as their salaries are much higher than back in Oz or UK. Don't believe you go into the rehab or orthopaedic wards in SGH, CGH, TTSH, KTPH, NUH, NTFH. You'll see plenty of angmoh PTs/OTs walking about.

And don't forget KBW was also the fucker who started going into means testing to see whether & how much subsidy you qualify when you go into hospital.

Also he implemented the turn-tilte vistors visiting system where two vistors are allowed each time.

Like a detention camp

Old folks wanted to see families together as a get well therapy.

Send them to their graves fast like detention wards.

Poor sinkies treated like criminals and yet voted them to screw them wholeheartly.
