Interviewees asking for New Singapore Shares (aka pre-election bribes!), more property subsidies, animal rights? Yahoo SG is obviously toeing the PAP party line picking comments that are 'safe' and not hitting where it matters.

No hope for Singaporeans and their descendants. They are passively waiting for help through the PAP.

If they are really interested in change, they should change the government.

If they end up poor, they get no sympathy from me.

50+ years of numerous failed promises, lies, deceit, incompetence and plundering... and hopelessly docile, dumb*ss Singaporeans are still OK with it, they just look forward to pre-election sweeteners that lead to tooth decay further down the road.

All comments and views have their rightful place.

So one has to go to the right place to look for and get the type of comments and thinking to be expected on the various issues, including Budget.

For instance do you expect to get Lucky Tan's type of analysis from Straits Times journalists and vice versa?

Agree with Anon above. Would you expect to hear someone say "I will vote out PAP!" on St news? Get real! It's all propaganda. Heavily edited and a farce.

HUUHH?!!?! said...

The comments sound like a joke.
Is this staged?

How do animal rights feature in a budget?!

no better than the readers' digest survey on the 50 most trusted.

any survey done live in public places that involves the govt can only become credible when at least 1/3 or more of the PAP MPs are voted out.
you can say it acts as a catalyst to diminish the fear to speak up when citizens actually see the PAP buggers are vulnerable.

For 2 long and hard years I thought about how difficult my life was when I was in Singapore. Now that I have migrated, I say to you: Life is greener on this other side. It's time you guys pause the rant for a while and convert the frustration to make life better for yourselves. I was doing exactly what you guys are doing now 2 years ago. What changed for me was the realisation that PAP will never change. I accepted that and moved on, instead of, my hand to God, trying to make a difference in an island that tells me I'm daft. Make a difference to your lives. Not to the country anymore as it's run like a company. You guys deserve much more. And so much better. You guys deserve more respect that this government is paying you. Make the effort and soon you'll get a letter from the government inviting you to their embassies here. Enough is enough. I'm revoking my citizenship. Best of luck to you guys. Ganbatte!

i think the garmen should buy us all a or a few lottery ticket/s to the multimillion lucky draw so some of us ordinary citizens can get to experience what it is like to be a millionaire minister.

To Goodbye to Singapore.
Well done. You took the plunge and you have no regrets. I respect your courage and you are rewarded with a better life for you and yours. Singaporeans are just so pathetic. They whinge and moan but when it comes to the GE, after receiving a little bribe they put the X where the PAP wants them to. Then for the next 4 or 5 years they again bitch and moan until the next GE and again they repeat the same old thing. Singaporeans deserves the govt they get and all the shit they receive from the plunderers in govt. My advice to the 66.6% is, if you want a change then vote them out. If you continue to vote them in, then shut up and live with the consequences.

Why leave when you should have vote them out?

i think this street interview is actually (and sadly) quite an accurate snapshot of the political views of singaporeans - at the best, safe, conservative, and evaluates the government according to report-card criteria (e.g. GDP statistics etc which are selectively published anyway); at worst uncritical, superficial, myopic, self-centered. I can imagine most yuppies giving that kind of no-brainer PC reply which that young woman gave - "I think the government is doing a very good job... i think this year's budget is very good... its going to be very good for the economy etc..."

it's called..listen to only what you want to hear.
what remains after you filtered out the negatives is chorus of elitist exuberance.

hey, pay me millions to hatch ideas such as....more casinos, go global but stay local, work cheaper,better and faster etc etc i too will be gushing with nothing but praises or positivity
