Mahathir trying to influence Duterte against influx of foreigners

Mahathir went to the Philippines to teach Duterte to such eggs, warning ‘the Philippines against letting in foreigners who could “disturb” the country’s domestic political stability’ in view of the influx of Chinese workers.  During an interview this is what Mahathir said, ‘Foreign direct investment should not involve brining huge numbers of foreigners to live in the country, because that might disturb the political equations in the country,…If huge numbers of any foreigners (come) to live and stay in the country…you have to do some rethinking as to whether it is good or bad, of the limits that you have to impose on them.’

Duterte has different considerations based on the Philippines own situation. Last month Duterte said that ‘Chinese workers should be allowed to continue staying in the country as Beijing also hosted hundreds of thousands of Filipinos.’ This kind of reciprocity is not in the thinking of Mahathir. To Mahathir it is one way, can only benefit Malaysia and not the other party, like China pouring money into Malaysia but must be according to Malaysia’s term and interest and China must be the Santa Claus. Duterte sees it differently, win win for both parties.

Why doesn’t Mahathir share his warning with the Singapore govt but only to the Philippines? Singapore would likely show him the middle finger, other than telling him to mind his own business, not to influence Singapore's policy making, Singapore would tell him that the more foreigners the better, and Singapore woud be most happy to give citizenships to foreigners, not just staying and working here. Mahathir probably did not know that Singapore is now not a country but a hotel for everyone who wants to be here. Everyone can come here and own Singapore, no problem. A hotel is not a country and has no misgivings about losing a country to foreigners. Singapore is happy to share this piece of rock with anyone that comes here to work. Citizens are now called locals, just like the foreigners living here as PRs, NOT citizens. In fact citizen is a bad word, 'local' is the new favoured word for those living in the island.

This is a new model of state corporation, not nationhood, except that it has not been officially spoken in this way. All the sensitivities and things like disturbing the political equations in the country are none issues here. Singapore does not see any problem with changing the political equation or demography of the country.  There is no race issue here, everyone is Singaporean. Any race can become the majority and become the Prime Minister or President. Singapore can be taken over by any race, no problem. 

This is better than the theory of black cat or white cat as long as it can catch mice it is a good cat. I am waiting for our political leaders to utter this great catch phrase as the new Singapore slogan to the locals. Singapore simply loves to have foreigners, the more the merrier, wildlife also can.

Dr Mahathir is not just telling the Pinoys. He is cautioning the Asean countries. He is also directly or indirectly telling Singapore.

The influx of undesirable elements into Singapore can affect not only Singaporeans but also Malaysians, especially Johoreans. Dr Mahathir is setting the stage for a legitimate reason to take back Singapore when the need arises.

Dr M did not tell Duterte the real reason why Singapore was kicked out of Malaysia. Too many Chinese will reduce the percentage of Malays in the country. It was a dilemma for Dr M and the Malays. Dr M did not realise that one-third of Pinoys living in Manila have Chinese ancestry. Dr M advocates Ketuanan Melayu. Duterte does not. He is aware that the Chinese are enterprising and hardworking. Duterte wants the Chinese to help his country becomes prosperous. Dr M prefers to see bumiputraism triumphs even if the country stagnates.

Thought they onmy acts as Meditor or the Controller and shouted "ORDER, ODOUR, ORDER" as seen in the British Parliament when things became rowdy.

Singapore is already a HOTEL to everyone as everyone is welcome to stay and working here stealing all the jobs of all Singaporeans due to their cancerous maganmity of the imbecile Millioniare Papies.

These Nincoompoops with silver and golden spoons in mouths and CBs who does not have to work for a day honest work does not know the hardshships of the citizens.

Now crossing to Matland, you can see so many instant half baked and wildlife creatures on SinkieLand Red Passports giving troubles to the Mats ICA.

Even the barbaric Whites, black ants and Mafias look alike Pinoys behaved badly and inconsiderately thinking that they are Talants new Breed Singaporeans to save the. Sinkies from their doom as praised by the Papies.

Now, true blue Singaporeans are also been scorned by them as created by the Foreign Trash citizens. That's included Matilah who disgraced us by his pompous arrogant behaviours.

Thus, Mahathair is indirectly telling the Papies of disturbances in their backyards.

@ It's a number's game

Dr M has neglected the math. ChIndia makes up 35% of the global population. That means if you throw a rock or shoot a bullet at a large random sample of the world's people, you have a better than 1/3 chance of hitting either a Chinese or Indian.

So, just get used to it. Your cuntry is going to have Chinese and Indian immigrants whether you like it or not. And they are hungry for financial success and willing to work for it, and some willing to take "short-cuts" to get what they want. "Short-cuts" can be legal and illegal, but humans who are motivated and incentivized are going to "do their thing", and they won't give a shit about you if you get "left behind".

What's more, like it or fuck off and cry in a corner screaming for your mother's tetek...China is going to get it's 21st century Silk Road by fair or foul means...and as it turns out, a combination of both. (Pragmatism, dummies!). India has also started by exporting its "brain power" in IT, Finance, engineering, medical services etc. Alphabet (Google) and Microsoft both have Indian CEOs.

But like I said before, what I can't control, I don't give a shit about. The only "choice" I have is to choose my own actions to respond to the changing environment. When it rains, use an umbrella; you have that choice, and other alternatives. One great alternative would be to invest in their growing economies. OK, at the moment, times are shakey...but recover they will, and it'll be back to two digit growth for the long-term.

Dr M has limited time. All his anti-immigrant, anti-Chinese rhetoric can only go so far. The main driver of any economy is the private sector, and the private sector employs the talents of many Indians and Chinese, because of their numbers, levels of education and skill, work ethic (they'll work harder than any local from any cuntry)...i.e. they are "value" for money.

Sure, we hear of a few duds here and there --- fakers, fraudsters and other examples of ugly humanity. But if you look at the numbers, the "goods" outweighs the "bads".

Chinese and Indians are good at science and engineering. Again, the numbers are HUGE. So, of course, "locals" will feel the heat. Or as LKY put it: "Put a spur in their sides"

I am all for open, toe-to-toe competition. And there's money to be made from it, as well as having massive new infrastructure built to accomodate the numbers...which makes modern cities more happening and awesome.

I am of the opinion that LKY was right when he said that. Too bad for those Singaporeans who feel that Singapore belongs to them.

Before Sarawak and Sabah formerly known as North Borneo joined Malaysia the native or indigenous population consists of about 60%, the Chinese 25%, the Malays 10% and 5% others. However during Mahatir's tenure of 22 years as Prime Minister he abused his power by taking in over 3 million Philippine Malay muslims and granted them instant Malaysian citizenship. Thus henceforth the proportion of the racial groupings changed drastically in favour of the Malays. It was no surprise then that the Barison National under Mahatir won election victories in both Sarawak and Sabah because of the sudden influx of new Malay citizens from the Philippines.

Mahatir , forever a caustic schemer and trouble maker is not against taking in new immigrants per se but there is no limit so long as the new citizens are muslims who can add in and enhance his political power.

When Mahatir talks about debt trap he must not forget how many debt traps he had created and left behind for Malaysians to burden for decades to come. Also people must ask him how his sons become billionairs controlling huge commercial conglomerates.

Duterte is more worried about poverty trap than debt trap which has seen his people working as maids and cheap labourers all over the world. Even Dr M is aware that if forced to choose sides, he would pick China over Uncle Sam. He knows Uncle Sam is unpredictable and China is rich.

Dr M is making his second visit to China in April to learn more about the BRI. He angered the Chinese when he put HSR projects on hold. It will not be a surprise if his present visit to the Philippines is to leverage on Duterte's good relationship with China and seeks his help to get China to revive the projects.

PH lost in a recent by-election and the wily nonagenarian knows that voters are beginning to get disillusioned if the economy stagnates.

What Mahathir is trying to say is just like Malaysia, where a particular race is highly favoured and hence rendered handicapped for generations, more foreigners will dilute the votes of that particular race that supported him and his gang.

People who need crutches will forever want to depend on crutches instead of working hard, so just vote for a party that can promise that, and that is what Mahathir wants.

This vile old man has all the bad thoughts and can never change. He is vindictive, bad hearted, wears a sly smile and has crooked thoughts written all over his face.

Dr M created political instability in Malaysia with his Bumi policy which he engineered during his first term as PM under UMNO.

Now that policy is an albatross around his neck. He cannot do away with that policy which will antagonize the Malays, who will gravitate towards PAS to protect their rights. One of Harapan's GE14 election promise was a New Malaysia, equality for all, not just the Malays.

UMNO and PAS thrive on their championing of Malay rights, which was the factor in the various by-elections so far, and come GE15, this race issue may be Harapan's waterloo, if Harapan cannot keep it's New Malaysia promise and therefore looses the Chinese and Indian support. Without the 1MDB issue, Harapan may even loose the Malay ground as well.

@Virgo, @All,

///Singaporeans don't want to be nurses?///

///My Elder sis and cousins had spent their whole lives as Nurses till retirement.///

///How the hell you know now sinkies don't want to be nurses.///

Today's nursing profession is 180-degrees different from the 1940s to 1970s. Previously nurses were civil servants with pensions & free medical. Their salary scale was also the similar to MOE teachers till the early 1980s (when they started mass recruiting M'sian nurses to replace Sinkie nurses).

Since 1991-1994, most nurses were stripped of civil servant status to become "Public Servants" under Restructured Hospitals (i.e. semi-"privatised" with major shareholder in Ministry of Health). No more job security, no more pension, no more free medical.

A LOT of Sinkie nurses drop out of govt hospitals during 1991-1994 --- become lecturers in polytechnics & private healthcare e.g. Parkway & Raffles, join private hospitals & medical centres, go overseas, change profession, retired.

The nursing salary became SHIT during the 1990s & 2000s. This was when S'pore mass imported from India, Philippines, China, Burma.

Even worse since 2000, MOH & the polytechnics (and now NUS) are going to China EVERY year to recruit students to study nursing. Sometimes even 2X a year. Many China MEDICAL students willingly give up their China medical school to come to S'pore as sponsored nursing student. I have 2 colleagues who used to be such China medical students, worked their way up 10-15 yrs to become nursing management in local govt hospitals --- 1 of them is already a deputy director. Their salaries minimum $8K a month or $130K a year.

Up till today, Nanyang Poly & Ngee Ann Poly depend on China students to sustain their Nursing Schools. About 60% of the nursing students in S'pore are DIRECTLY RECRUITED from overseas ON FULL SPONSORSHIP. Without China recruits, can basically close down the nursing courses in polytechnics.

Sinkies who end up in Nursing Diploma are the rubbish dump --- O level results too fucked up to go into other Diploma courses. Most Sinkies who graduate with nursing diplomas will only work as nurses for 3-4 years before doing non-patient-care jobs e.g. medical equipment sales, nursing lecturer, clinical instructor, or totally different industry etc. Many won't even work as nurses or in hospitals from Day 1. I know many of my classmates like that.

Since 2013, S'pore govt has been trying to increase the attractiveness of nursing. There has been 50% jump in nursing salaries in govt hospitals & polyclinics. But more can be done especially in work environment quality, better nurse-to-patient ratio, working hours etc.

Today a typical fresh diploma Sinkie nurse starting salary --- $2,500.
Fresh NUS degree 1st class or 2nd Upper Honours nurse --- $4,000.
But most other degrees have starting pay of at least $4.5K or $5K.

Hi Anon 2.41

What's you posted is the Real Scenario that happened to the Nursing Profession.

Few years back, one of my niece dropped out in the Nursing Course and had to pay quite a bit of compensation.

Now she is a now fully qualified SRN. Yes, other professions may have better renumerations but Jobs Security wise, think nursing is more secure and stable with the aging pop needs.

Also, many pragamtic Singaporeans even in mid careers from other professions now switched to Nursing. They were insecure of their other jobs due to the insecure environment of policies by our daft government. My neigbour from Business sector now in Health professions.

Very true. Same for engineering too.

In my SME company of about 200 staff and with 90% of them in technical areas, 95% of these are from India, Philippines, China, Burma. Yes, some were graduates of our Poly or even U. And a lot are even recent citizens too.

And when we advertised for jobs, almost 100% of applicants have names which don't sound like true local and indeed they are not.

Anonymous said...


Ya nursing can be more "secure" than other jobs. But also need to bear in mind quite high chance of errors that can result in license suspension or termination. I can say with 1st-hand experience that almost all errors in hospitals are pushed to nursing staff first, and doctors & admin management are ALWAYS covered up as much as possible. Only when case go into high court & Court of Appeal then all the Shits come out. PROBLEM IS: 99% of patients cannot afford to go to court.

From my nursing lecturers' accounts & old birds' experience, now is much harder to cover up things in hospitals, unlike in the 1970s and 1980s. So standard practise is the nurses will become target scapegoats.

The govt has indeed make the salaries more attractive for nursing, but only mandated for govt-related healthcare. Thus certain private healthcare like Community Hospitals & Nursing Homes are still paying TERRIBLE SALARIES. That's why you only see 1 or 2 local nurses in Community Hospital wards, and ZERO local nurses in nursing homes (I don't count mgmt-level nurses or nursing officers (ward managers) which are locals or new citizens).

Nursing can be OK job, as long as you DON'T work in C or B2 Class wards in govt hospitals, or in Community Hospitals or Nursing Homes.

My Estate at least 50% Pinoy nurses renting the flats here. Plus Indian and some Chinese Ah Mahs. Just opposite SGH.

Now they have a New Community Hospital Up and soon be operating. Think most would be hemmed by Local nurses. (SGH Community Hospital_ now privately owned.

Anyway, as I often sat with my dog at void decks after walks and had quite a number of friendly Pinoy nurses in conversations with them. Mostly male, don't be mistaken.

Most of them are very friendly and congenial. I seen so many of them always kena Night Duties most of the times which is quite regular as they used to greet me on their way to work.

I asked them, wah nights again? They said Ya. Actually, Sinkies Local nurses are given special treatments by the Nursing Management. Most of them had easy duties been most in charge as Staff or Nursing Sisters. They always bullied the interns Nanyang Poly student nurses in doing the menial duties.

My mother frequent past check ins and I can observed that this is the Norm. Now no more. I had an operation recently and I observed that it is so.

So, actually, the Foreign nurses and the Students nurses do the bulk of their menial works.
Only Senior Nurses will do the medications and whatsoever more complicated tasks.

Yes, Nursing to many is a "dirty" job where you see so much sufferings and pains. But Singaporeans been pragmatic that livelihoods always comes first will do these professions for Security.

Nowadays, the Employment Scene out of nursing is like a battlefield. Alive Today and Dead Tomorrow. The Sai Kar Tripartite what's BULLSHITS protections for the workers.

I dunno about SGH, but at the govt hospital where I work --- many Sinkie nurses with not much family commitments also WANT to do plenty of night shifts. COZ the allowances are much bigger. Those who do mostly night shifts can take home >50% higher salary compared to those who only do morning & PM shifts.

The nursing managers need to be fair & roster night shifts equally. At most give slightly more to those who indicate preference.

From personal experience --- I like night shift the best --- least work & highest allowance.

Morning shift is the WORST --- wake up bloody early 4:30am and the BUSIEST & the LEAST allowance. Rushing for patients' bathing & toileting --- those wheelchair bound & bed-bound, rushing to serve morning medications, rushing to monitor & re-program IV drips auto-pumps and IV drugs, ensure all got breakfast & receive proper consistency --- wait those cannot swallow properly choke on unsuitable food or drinks, do NGT tube feeding for those cannot use mouth, record all vital stats, record intake/output, and do ALL THESE before doctors' rounds.

Worst is the doctors' morning rounds --- you really need to know your patients' conditions, & plans of care, and their clinical trends over the past few hours & past few days.

After that rush to implement any changes to patients' care plans, ensure newly prescribed drugs orders are sent to pharmacy, and start doing any wound dressings / cleanings.

If I can't get night shift, I always jio my boss to give me PM shifts. MUCH better than morning!!

As for bullying, depends on wards & the old birds there. Some got a bit, some a lot, some don't have.

BTW, giving medications is done by ALL RNs. Is not a senior nurse job. I was in-charge of serving drugs after just 1-2 months as new bird. You supposed to know all the common drugs & drug classes when you graduate. At the medication trolley, the laptop will have connection to drug database & hospital pharmacy intranet for the latest info on new drugs.

Nowadays nurses expected to do quite a lot of stuff previously done by doctors .... remove operation stitches, remove / pull out internal post-op drains, insert new IV cannulas (need to re-do new site every 72 hrs) etc.

///U mean in private and atas hospitals nurses no need to clean up shit meh? If not, how OK is the job? ///

Clean up shit is EASY part of job. If you pay me my salary to just clean shit for my shift, I'll be very happy.

Knowing medical care plans & how to carry them out is the SIONG part, in addition to the arrow at your head if anything cock up.

Atas hospital & B1 and A Class wards in govt hospital are MUCH easier becoz higher nurse to patient ratio. No need to rush like mad & less chance to make medical errors.

In C & B2 wards, 1 nurse to AT LEAST 8 patients. You're responsible for EVERYTHING that happens to them during your shift. I always tell my patients --- you can die, just as long don't die on my shift.

In Community Hospitals, 1 nurse to AT LEAST 12-16 patients.

In IMH, 1 nurse to 15-20 mental patients. IMH rely on more healthcare attendants to assist the nurses. But these attendants are NOT really nursing or medical trained, many can't even do proper CPR or take blood pressure --- YES it's that bad. They're just muscle men or think they're muscle men garang garang.

Hi Anon 0751

What you said is correct. My sister maybe because of their age found that night shifts are really a strain but it's true that they rotate that fairness is ensured.

Maybe this Pinoy young nurse wants to make that extras and thus volunteer more of night shifts.

That's why I seen him so frequently on nights shifts. All nurses dispenses medications. Maybe those on special drugs are been delegated to more senior ones as they are more experienced.

Overdose of potassium chlorate can send you to your Maker. Health care professions are mostly on Permanent basis as they do not want the turnover to be high. Unlike now other professions where they offered ad hoc, part time and contract basis.

That's why so many want to even a switch in Careers for Jobs Security reasons.

At one time, my daughter, after her Research Lab job of neraly ten years was abandoned, tried to even apply in SGH as a Radiographer but was not successful.

I told her better at your younger age secure a permanent basis job as now the outside Jobs Markets is like a Jungle. Killing each other for survival.

The Best still at these Health Institutions like a Silly, Evil or JLB Civil Serpent or Servant.

So, Radiographers reserved for Foreign Talents. Maybe they thought she is too qualified to be one as she is formerly from "A" Star.

Singaporeans wants a secure lower pay jobs also not successful.

Aiyo, why from "A" Star need to look for radiographer job?

Cannot go for another research job meh? If cannot, then something really not quite right leh, if she is really good in research work.

No wonder SGH rejected her for radiographer job.

Hahahaha, u want to know why or not?

Because Singaporeans who need to secure lower pay jobs are not the talented ones mah.

The talented ones will remain in their higher pay jobs and will even earn more in time to come.

Even a ordinary Sinkie like me almost 60 years old and drawing $7K per month do not need to go look for lower pay jobs.

Virgo49 said...

The way you talked is Hell of sarcastic.

When cannot apply for Radiographer or Lab Tech testing bloods in hospitals.?

Not all need to be in high paying jobs. Just secure jobs.

Permanent secure jobs and not contract,ad hoc is part time of no time.

Oh fuck. Now I will have to penalise my rating for The Hotel -- MINUS 30 percent for being willfully less rocking and downgrading the awesomeness.

Fuck the people in govt who did this. May Satan possess their children, may Satan's cock fuck their babies in the womb, may Satan's propensity for pranks (hey, even the prince of darkness needs "entertainment") play havoc with their lives.

Let's make their pain, our entertainment! πŸ˜‚

If shit like this continues, I might have to find a new hotel. 😑
