Why the PAP Backtracked on the Freedom of Speech from 2004 to 2014

When there was a change of government in 2004, one thing that the PAP did not understand then was that you cannot allow for more freedom of speech and still expect to be able to earn more money from Singaporeans, yet expect that no one will question your behaviour.

In 2004, PAP embarked on a bold belief to allow for more free speech. Lee Hsien Loong said in his swearing-in speech as prime minister in 2004, “Our people should feel free to express diverse views, pursue unconventional ideas, or simply be different. We should have the confidence to engage in robust debate, so as to understand our problems, conceive fresh solutions, and open up new spaces.”

When the new government came onboard, it seemed that they wanted to establish themselves from their predecessors. In their minds, they would have thought – more free speech, higher GDP growth, more wealth, let’s make it look like we are a “progressive” government and win the hearts of the people!

Indeed, Lee Hsien Loong also said in 2004, “Through our hard work and dedication we have together built a cohesive and progressive nation that is founded on the principles of meritocracy, social justice and compassion.”

From a marketing perspective, all these looks very nice. But from a fundamental perspective, the new PAP got some things wrong.

PAP Underestimated the Dejection of Singaporeans with the Government

First, for the first 40 years of PAP’s rule prior to 2004, the PAP criminalised public protests and demonstrations (except for the token allowance at Hong Lim Park from 2000). They also controlled newspapers, and TV and radio stations. In effect, they were able to limit the grievances and outpouring of Singaporeans, by sculpting the story the way they want it – Singaporeans were happy and fortunate, and lives were beautiful. Doesn’t matter if this is not the reality, PAP needed to make themselves look good and appearances matter more than reality, for aren’t looks deceiving?

Alongside, during the first 40 years, PAP began to increase their own salaries, reduce subsidies for essential services for Singaporeans and made Singaporeans pay more than is required for these essential services. Meanwhile, PAP also reduced tax for the rich while making the rest of Singaporeans pay more of our wages into CPF. This caused inequality and poverty to rise in Singapore. Poverty is estimated to be about 30% in Singapore today.

However, because the PAP was able to control the media and restrict the freedom of speech, they were led to believe in the illusion that because Singaporeans were not speaking up against what the PAP was doing, Singaporeans were generally contended, or rather that Singaporeans would not have the guts to speak up against what the PAP was doing.

So, in 2004, the PAP would have thought – we have a new government, let’s make ourselves look progressive by allowing more freedom of speech, but not knowing what the impact will be. Yet, at the same time, they wanted to continue to earn more money and make Singapore a more unequal place. Herein lies the next fundamental issue that the PAP doesn’t understand.

You Either Have Free Speech or North Korea

Since 2004, over the past 10 years, income inequality and poverty have risen, housing prices have risen while wages have remained stagnant, purchasing power has declined, and the cost of living in Singapore has risen to become the most expensive in the world.

Alongside this, more and more Singaporeans have harder lives and more Singaporeans are speaking up against the lack of protection of the policies to protect our labour rights and livelihoods.

Naturally, as people’s lives become harder, they would only continue to speak up further.

However, from the PAP’s perspective, they are beginning to realise that you cannot want to continue to siphon money away from the citizens and cause inequality to widen, while at the same time allow people to speak up.

You either choose to be North Korea, where you prevent people from speaking up against you and make all the money you want, or you become a truly progressive country where you allow people to speak up, to voice out what’s wrong, what solutions can then be implemented, so that the country advances as a whole, inequality lessens and the country truly progresses.

In short, the PAP cannot have its cake and eat it as well. This was the second fundamental point the new PAP did not understand.

Progressiveness is Not GDP Growth

Which leads us to the third fundamental point which the PAP does not understand. Progressiveness is not just about how rich the country becomes or how much the rich can earn. Progressiveness is about how your citizens as a whole advance, how your country becomes more equal so that everyone can advance altogether, which also explains why progressive taxation is one where the rich are taxed more, so that the wealth can be redistributed to allow the poor to advance as well.

When the new PAP came into government in 2004, these were three fundamental points that they did not understand, and they could not because they were trapped in their elitism bubble. Yes, apparently being in the ivory tower has its pitfalls too.

PAP Started the Internet Brigade in 2007

As the PAP’s new but disjointed strategy started to take shape from 2004, PAP realised the mistake of its follies – you cannot give people the freedom of speech, if you still want to make money from them. You have to silence them, if they start questioning you. No wonder the old PAP wanted to instill fear in the people, to prevent them from speaking up, but it was too late for the new PAP to backtrack then. They wanted to upkeep their appearance as the modern, cool and relevant government.

So, in 2007, they got some of the younger PAP members of parliament to spearhead a team of people who are now known as the Internet Brigade (IB), with the aim to go online to steer the conversation. If people were going to speak up against the PAP, then let’s steer the conversation back to be in favour of the PAP.

Their efforts failed disastrously. PAP saw its lowest votes in the 2011 general election.

PAP Descended the Laws Onto Ordinary Singaporeans

No matter, last year, PAP went even further. At the most basic, there are three tactics that the PAP have been using to “convince” the people – (1) persuasion (such as via the IB), (2) rules and (3) laws.

The first tactic by using the IB failed miserably and for a while, the PAP was not ready to use the law to the full extent on Singaporeans yet. So let’s come out with a stop-gap rule, and so the Licensing Rule by the Media Development Authority, aimed at committing bloggers and online commenters to financial penalties for speaking up against the government, was created.

The rule backfired terribly against the PAP, as many bloggers were riled up and protested in one of Singapore’s largest protests in recent history. The PAP silently shied away from the ruling, perhaps with the intention to implement it closer to the date of the next general election (which is expected to be held soon).

What PAP did not understand is that there cannot be freedom of speech, and yet expect people to want to curb themselves from speaking freely (but of course, responsibly). Such an irony exists in the minds of the decision-makers within the PAP but such disjoint does not in the logical minds of people.

So, since both persuasion and rules did not work, the PAP decided that the use of the law was the only way out for them, to protect their wealth, as much as it was heavily unpopular.

And thus what transpired with well-known blogger Alex Au and comic artist Leslie Chew, and so on.

However, at this point, all the curtailing of rights and the backpedalling on letting Singaporeans have the freedom of speech was confined to the restriction of online discourse.

Clamping Down on Free Speech at Hong Lim Park

Then, the PAP felt that it unnecessary to act on the protests, as the protests had yet to get traction and the PAP was able to deride the protests by giving them minimal and distorted coverage in the mainstream media controlled by them, so as to limit the spillover effects of the protests.

PAP would have also understood that it is necessary for people to “vent” their frustrations, so that the pent-up anger would have lesser of a chance of exploding in the face of the PAP, where revolution might then take place, and thus the creation of the Speaker’s Corner in the first place to prevent that.

However, since last year, with several protests attended by a significant number of people, numbering in the thousands, the PAP started taking the threat that the protests would pose to their rule seriously. We can stop what the media we control say, but we cannot control what the bloggers and online social media is saying, and they are beginning to gain more traction than we do, and not just online but in physical space!

So, the PAP decided something needed to be done.

Fear Takes Root in the PAP, Creates Insecurity Among Themselves

The PAP’s next steps became more disparate and rushed. Over the last few weeks, they have been seen to change their tactics desperately. From the non-coverage of the protests, they decided to cover them, but with a strong negative slant. Specifically, the PAP targeted the protest organisers and participants, this in itself a recognition by the PAP that the protests have gained traction and that the protests and their organisers have become a threat to the PAP.

In the next desperate move, the police started investigating the organisers and participants for criminal acts.

Before we even go into analysing the futility of such actions, the PAP’s actions only go to show one thing.

The PAP is desperate. And because of their desperation, their bad planning is beginning to show. To act on their plans without the proper think-through of the consequences, or if they knew the consequences and yet still carried them out, goes to show how feeble the attempt the PAP has in trying to protect themselves.

Gone are the days of the old PAP who knew what they were doing, who had thought through their actions, anticipated them and carried them out exactly – to the full impact of victimising Singaporeans. These days, the PAP runs around like headless chickens, ironically they themselves fearing their loss of their power and thus as they act out their fears, they allow their bad planning to befall on their plans as well.

Limit people’s freedom of speech, give them a token space to speak, then charge them for breaking the law while they exercise their basic right as a citizen at that space. This is like taking a lollipop away from a child, then deciding that maybe the child can still have the stick of the lollipop and when the child starts licking the stick, smacks the child for doing so.

It simply does not make sense.

To Fear or Not to Fear?

But if one is to appraise the PAP’s actions over not only the past few weeks or months, but years, we begin to see a story coming through, a story of a new government which wanted to continue to establish itself as a forerunner in the world, but without the deep-rooted understanding that its predecessors had, committed themselves into a promise that they realise they could not and did not want to hold on to, and as they could not reverse what they had done, they started to rely on old methods to hopefully ensnare Singaporeans back into a fear, which would allow them to then continue to advance their plans – to continue to earn from the people.

The ultimate question at this point is – would Singaporeans allow the PAP to ensnare you back into fear?

This is why maybe the rhetoric that it is not important for Singaporeans to study for degrees. Maybe Singaporeans do not need to be given to many statistics because it is not in your personal or national interests to know.

And why not? The more you know, the more you will know what the government is really doing to your money and your CPF. And if you do, what are you going to do?

The (new) PAP regrets saying that they wanted to open up the Singapore society. And with what has happened over the past half a year, the PAP cannot be even more flabbergasted by how badly the situation has backfired on them.

At this point, for the PAP, they will do anything to bring back security for themselves, and this means using fear and the law to prevent people from speaking up. At least if they can reverse what they would deem as damage that has been done, they would then be able to embark on their plans (to keep earning money) with much lesser interference.

Because honestly, if China can do so with 1 billion people and keep the control, why not the PAP?

Well, because China does not have elections. The only saving grace for Singaporeans now is that we have elections. The PAP is going all out to silence dissent and instill fear so that at the next election, they can still be kept in power. God knows what will happen if they are put back into power. Will all hell break loose? Will we see another Operation Coldstore or Operation Spectrum? All signs point to a PAP which would be more willing to take hardhitting action to keep themselves in power, and this means moving closer towards the North Korea option.

For Our Families, Will We Fight Back or Hide?

The final question for Singaporeans now is this – is our survival important enough for us to know that we need to speak up and fight back, if not at Hong Lim Park, but at least in the voting booth? Or is our survival so important that we will fear and shrink back into our shells?

Both forms of survival are quite distinct. For one, the fear lies in the fear of what will happen to our bodily self and how we fear the pain that will affect us as one person alone, and thus choose to accept the oppression and keep quiet.

The other lies in knowing what is at stake for our country if we do not speak up and do what is right and in knowing that for the greater good of our country, we need to do what is right to protect ourselves and our families, and to vote for a government that will take care of us, to give us a new lease of life.

At this point, it is up to Singaporeans now. The PAP can very easily clamp down on one or two or a few Singaporeans and stop the efforts to demand for change, but the PAP would not be able to stop hundreds and thousands of Singaporeans who feel similarly and prevent the PAP from sashaying themselves into government anymore.

If Singaporeans were to take up the mantle and brave the courage to fight as the people of Hong Kong is doing now, change will not only be a determined outcome, it is only a question of a matter of time, and sooner than later.

The PAP government wants to play itself to look like a democracy, then perhaps it is time Singaporeans learn to act as citizens living in a democracy. If the people of a country recognise their power, they do not know how much this will cause their government to tremble in their knees.

At the end of the day, you have to ask yourself – what do you really want? Do you want your lives to really get better? Do you want a government that will no longer just sit on the problems that this country is facing, but would take decisive action to solve these problems and to improve the lives of not just a few Singaporeans at the top, but for all Singaporeans, so that we will truly achieve equality as our pledge says and so that our country and our people will grow and advance as a nation, and Singapore can have a new beginning, as we search for the pride that we once had but have lost, and to rebuild our country together once again.

This is something you have to think about.

Originally broadcast as a preview on August 17, 2007, on Disney Channel, the series follows Phineas Flynn and his English stepbrother Ferb Fletcher[1] on summer vacation. Every day the boys embark on some grand new project, which annoys their controlling sister, Candace, who tries to bust them. The series follows a standard plot system; running gags occur every episode, and the B-Plot almost always features Perry the Platypus (“Agent P”), acting as a secret agent to fight an evil scientist named Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. The two plots intersect at the end to erase all traces of the boys’ project just before Candace can show it to their mother. This usually leaves Candace very frustrated.
    Creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh worked together on the Nickelodeon series Rocko’s Modern Life. The Creators also voice two of the main B-plot characters: Major Monogram and Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Phineas and Ferb was conceived after Povenmire sketched a triangular boy—the blueprint for the eponymous Phineas—in a restaurant. Povenmire and Marsh developed the series concept together and pitched to networks for 16 years before securing a run on Disney Channel.[1]
    The series is also known for its musical numbers, which have appeared in almost every episode since the first-season “Flop Starz”. Disney’s managers particularly enjoyed the episode’s song, “Gitchee, Gitchee Goo”, and requested that a song appear in each subsequent episode.[2] The show’s creators write and record each number, and vary musical tempo depending on each song’s dramatic use.[3] The music has earned the series a total of four Emmy nominations: in 2008 for the main title theme and for the song “I Ain’t Got Rhythm” from the episode “Dude, We’re Getting the Band Back Together”,[4] and then in 2010 for the song “Come Home Perry” from the episode “Oh, There You Are, Perry” as well as one for its score. The series has also been popular with adults.[5][6][7] Phineas and Ferb is currently on its third season

    The show follows the adventures of stepbrothers Phineas Flynn (Vincent Martella) and Ferb Fletcher (Thomas Sangster), who live in the fictional town of Danville, somewhere in the Tri-State area. Their older sister, Candace Flynn (Ashley Tisdale), is obsessed with two things throughout the show. One is “busting” Phineas and Ferb’s schemes and ideas, usually calling their mother to report the boys’ activities in an attempt to get them in trouble, but is never successful because of events that transpire in another subplot. Second she is somewhat obsessed with her now boyfriend Jeremy. [2] Meanwhile, the boys’ pet platypus, Perry, acts as a secret agent for an all-animal government organization[10][11] called the O.W.C.A. (“Organization Without a Cool Acronym”), fighting Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.[12]
    Much of the series’ humor relies on running gags used in every episode with slight variation.[13] For example, several episodes feature an adult asking Phineas if he is too young to be performing some complex activity, to which he responds “Yes, yes I am.” Also, Phineas and Ferb, along with other characters, before starting their inventions, ask, “Hey, where’s Perry?”.[1] Perry and Doofenshmirtz’s confrontations generally lead to the destruction or disappearance of whatever Phineas and Ferb are constructing or taking part in that day.[12][13]
    Aspects of the show’s humor are aimed at adults,[14] including its frequent pop-cultural references.[15] Co-creator Dan Povenmire, sought to create a show that was less raunchy than Family Guy—having previously worked on the show—but had the same reliance on comic timing, employing humorous blank stares, expressionless faces and wordplay.[16] Povenmire describes the show as a combination of Family Guy and SpongeBob SquarePants.[17] Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, the other co-creator, said the show was not created just for kids, but simply did not exclude them as an audience.[14]

    Characters

    Main article: List of Phineas and Ferb characters

    A platypus was included in the series due to its interesting appearance.[18]

    The series’ main characters live in a blended family, a premise the creators considered underused in children’s programming and which reflected Marsh’s own upbringing. Marsh considers explaining the family background “not important to the kids’ lives. They are a great blended family and that’s all we need to know.”[19] The choice of a platypus as the boys’ pet was similarly inspired by media underuse, as well as to exploit its striking appearance.[18] The platypus also gives them freedom to “make stuff up” since “no one knows very much about [them].”[19]
    Marsh called the characters “cool, edgy and clever without […] being mean-spirited.” According to Povenmire, their animation director, Rob Hughes, agreed: “in all the other shows every character is either stupid or a jerk, but there are no stupid characters or jerks in this one.”[2]
    Music

    Main article: List of Phineas and Ferb songs
    “Every episode since [Flop Starz] has a song in it. It’s not always the characters singing onscreen — they don’t break into song just to advance the plot. The music doesn’t come out of nowhere, sometimes it’s just a montage over action. We’ve done every genre known to man: ABBA, Broadway show tunes, 16th-century madrigals”

    Dan Povenmire on the songs.[2]

    Phineas and Ferb follows structural conventions Povenmire and Marsh developed while writing Rocko’s Modern Life, whereby each episode features “a song or a musical number, plus a big action/chase scene”.[2] Both creators had musical backgrounds, as Povenmire performed rock’n’roll in his college years[20] and Marsh’s grandfather was the bandleader Les Brown.[14]
    The creators’ original pitch to Disney emphasized Perry’s signature “secret agent theme” and the song “Gitchee Gitchee Goo” from the episode “Flop Starz”. Disney’s managers enjoyed the songs and asked Povenmire and Marsh to write one for each episode.[2]
    The songs span many genres, from 16th-century madrigals to Broadway show tunes.[2] Each is written in an intensive session during episode production: a concept, score, and lyrics are developed quite quickly.[3] Together, Marsh and Povenmire can “write a song about almost anything” and in only one hour at most.[19] After they finish writing the song, Povenmire and Marsh sing it over the answering machine of series composer Danny Jacob on Friday nights. By the following Monday the song is fully produced.[21]
    The title sequence music, originally named ‘Today is Going to be a Great Day’ and performed by the American band Bowling for Soup,[12] was nominated for an Emmy award in 2008.[4] The creators originally wrote a slower number, more like a “classic Disney song”, but the network felt changes were needed to appeal to modern children and commissioned a rock/ska version which made the final cut.[9]
    A season 2 clip show broadcast in October 2009 focused on the music of Phineas and Ferb, featuring a viewer-voted top-10 of songs from the series; the end result was the “Phineas and Ferb’s Musical Cliptastic Countdown.”[22]
    Origins

    Phineas and Ferb co-creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh in 2009.

    Early inspirations

    Co-creator Dan Povenmire attributes the show’s genesis to growing up in Mobile, Alabama, where his mother told him never to waste a day of summer. To occupy himself, Povenmire undertook projects such as hole-digging and home movie-making. Povenmire recalled, “My mom let me drape black material all the way across one end of our living room to use as a space field. I would hang little models of spaceships for these little movies I made with a Super 8 camera.”[1][9][23] He was an artistic prodigy and displayed his very detailed drawings at art shows.[20] Meanwhile, Marsh grew up in a large, blended family.[14] As with Povenmire, Marsh spent his summers exploring and taking part in several different activities in order to have fun.[2]
    Conception

    Drawn on butcher paper, this first drawing of Phineas began a rapid growth of characters and the outline of the artistic style.[2]

    Will 30,000 Singaporeans give $1 to stand up for these 6 brave Singaporeans who spoke up on CPF?
    Friends,

    I have been charged with two crimes. The Police gave me the charges yesterday. If I am found guilty, I will become a criminal.

    Imagine, becoming a criminal in your own country simply for speaking up.
    All I have ever wanted is to speak the truth, to let Singaporeans know what is really going on, so that together, we can do what is right to protect ourselves and our country, and most importantly, our families and our children.

    This is why I speak up – so that we can protect ourselves.
    But today, for speaking up, for wanting to protect their own families, they have been charged for doing the very thing anyone would do for their families.

    -alternative version from http://www.tremeritus.com/2014/10/04/the-hong-lim-park-protestors-were-lucky/
    Just when you thought that the protest on 27/9 was going to be another ear-piercing shouting match, Han and Roy have shocked Singaporeans by hijacking a YMCA charity event meant for the disadvantaged and special needs children at an adjacent lawn.
    The bombshell landed when a 17-minute video surfaced which showed that Roy and Han marched towards the YMCA stage three times and disrupted the performance on stage with their unruly behaviour. PAP junior Minister Teo Ser Luck who was the VIP for the YMCA event became the target of Roy & Han when they screamed into the loudhailers demanding him to “Return Our CPF”. Some of the supporters of Roy & Han had even gotten physically close to Teo and displayed signs of aggression.

    Were these supporters a physical threat to Teo?

    Which version we should believe?

    • Alan

      Roy! Stop your lies!

      You are not charged for speaking up! You are charged for all the other nonsense you created with you gang of 6! And you still have the cheek to ask the public to pay for your nuisance? Some more heckling the special kids!

      What happened to the initial $110,000 you got from the public? Where is the account for that? Enjoy your holiday away with that money?

      All I can say is you are fxxking shameless! Still trying to put up an act to deceive everyone?

  3. SIMPLE

    After some science exposition, back to earth. Which version is more likely?
    1. They are charged because:
    But today, for speaking up, for wanting to protect their own families, they have been charged for doing the very thing anyone would do for their families.
    2. They are charged because:

The music doesn’t come out of nowhere, sometimes it’s just a montage over action. We’ve done every genre known to man: ABBA, Broadway show tunes, 16th-century madrigals”

    Dan Povenmire on the songs.[2]

    Phineas and Ferb follows structural conventions Povenmire and Marsh developed while writing Rocko’s Modern Life, whereby each episode features “a song or a musical number, plus a big action/chase scene”.[2] Both creators had musical backgrounds, as Povenmire performed rock’n’roll in his college years[20] and Marsh’s grandfather was the bandleader Les Brown.[14]
    The creators’ original pitch to Disney emphasized Perry’s signature “secret agent theme” and the song “Gitchee Gitchee Goo” from the episode “Flop Starz”. Disney’s managers enjoyed the songs and asked Povenmire and Marsh to write one for each episode.[2]
    The songs span many genres, from 16th-century madrigals to Broadway show tunes.[2] Each is written in an intensive session during episode production: a concept, score, and lyrics are developed quite quickly.[3] Together, Marsh and Povenmire can “write a song about almost anything” and in only one hour at most.[19] After they finish writing the song, Povenmire and Marsh sing it over the answering machine of series composer Danny Jacob on Friday nights. By the following Monday the song is fully produced.[21]
    The title sequence music, originally named ‘Today is Going to be a Great Day’ and performed by the American band Bowling for Soup,[12] was nominated for an Emmy award in 2008.[4] The creators originally wrote a slower number, more like a “classic Disney song”, but the network felt changes were needed to appeal to modern children and commissioned a rock/ska version which made the final cut.[9]
    A season 2 clip show broadcast in October 2009 focused on the music of Phineas and Ferb, featuring a viewer-voted top-10 of songs from the series; the end result was the “Phineas and Ferb’s Musical Cliptastic Countdown.”[22]
    Origins

    Phineas and Ferb co-creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh in 2009.

    Early inspirations

    Co-creator Dan Povenmire attributes the show’s genesis to growing up in Mobile, Alabama, where his mother told him never to waste a day of summer. To occupy himself, Povenmire undertook projects such as hole-digging and home movie-making. Povenmire recalled, “My mom let me drape black material all the way across one end of our living room to use as a space field. I would hang little models of spaceships for these little movies I made with a Super 8 camera.”[1][9][23] He was an artistic prodigy and displayed his very detailed drawings at art shows.[20] Meanwhile, Marsh grew up in a large, blended family.[14] As with Povenmire, Marsh spent his summers exploring and taking part in several different activities in order to have fun.[2]

Originally broadcast as a preview on August 17, 2007, on Disney Channel, the series follows Phineas Flynn and his English stepbrother Ferb Fletcher[1] on summer vacation. Every day the boys embark on some grand new project, which annoys their controlling sister, Candace, who tries to bust them. The series follows a standard plot system; running gags occur every episode, and the B-Plot almost always features Perry the Platypus (“Agent P”), acting as a secret agent to fight an evil scientist named Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. The two plots intersect at the end to erase all traces of the boys’ project just before Candace can show it to their mother. This usually leaves Candace very frustrated.
    Creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh worked together on the Nickelodeon series Rocko’s Modern Life. The Creators also voice two of the main B-plot characters: Major Monogram and Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Phineas and Ferb was conceived after Povenmire sketched a triangular boy—the blueprint for the eponymous Phineas—in a restaurant. Povenmire and Marsh developed the series concept together and pitched to networks for 16 years before securing a run on Disney Channel.[1]
    The series is also known for its musical numbers, which have appeared in almost every episode since the first-season “Flop Starz”. Disney’s managers particularly enjoyed the episode’s song, “Gitchee, Gitchee Goo”, and requested that a song appear in each subsequent episode.[2] The show’s creators write and record each number, and vary musical tempo depending on each song’s dramatic use.[3] The music has earned the series a total of four Emmy nominations: in 2008 for the main title theme and for the song “I Ain’t Got Rhythm” from the episode “Dude, We’re Getting the Band Back Together”,[4] and then in 2010 for the song “Come Home Perry” from the episode “Oh, There You Are, Perry” as well as one for its score. The series has also been popular with adults.[5][6][7] Phineas and Ferb is currently on its third season

    The show follows the adventures of stepbrothers Phineas Flynn (Vincent Martella) and Ferb Fletcher (Thomas Sangster), who live in the fictional town of Danville, somewhere in the Tri-State area. Their older sister, Candace Flynn (Ashley Tisdale), is obsessed with two things throughout the show. One is “busting” Phineas and Ferb’s schemes and ideas, usually calling their mother to report the boys’ activities in an attempt to get them in trouble, but is never successful because of events that transpire in another subplot. Second she is somewhat obsessed with her now boyfriend Jeremy. [2] Meanwhile, the boys’ pet platypus, Perry, acts as a secret agent for an all-animal government organization[10][11] called the O.W.C.A. (“Organization Without a Cool Acronym”), fighting Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.[12]
    Much of the series’ humor relies on running gags used in every episode with slight variation.[13] For example, several episodes feature an adult asking Phineas if he is too young to be performing some complex activity, to which he responds “Yes, yes I am.” Also, Phineas and Ferb, along with other characters, before starting their inventions, ask, “Hey, where’s Perry?”.[1] Perry and Doofenshmirtz’s confrontations generally lead to the destruction or disappearance of whatever Phineas and Ferb are constructing or taking part in that day.[12][13]
    Aspects of the show’s humor are aimed at adults,[14] including its frequent pop-cultural references.[15] Co-creator Dan Povenmire, sought to create a show that was less raunchy than Family Guy—having previously worked on the show—but had the same reliance on comic timing, employing humorous blank stares, expressionless faces and wordplay.[16] Povenmire describes the show as a combination of Family Guy and SpongeBob SquarePants.[17] Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, the other co-creator, said the show was not created just for kids, but simply did not exclude them as an audience.[14]

    Characters

    Main article: List of Phineas and Ferb characters

    A platypus was included in the series due to its interesting appearance.[18]

    The series’ main characters live in a blended family, a premise the creators considered underused in children’s programming and which reflected Marsh’s own upbringing. Marsh considers explaining the family background “not important to the kids’ lives. They are a great blended family and that’s all we need to know.”[19] The choice of a platypus as the boys’ pet was similarly inspired by media underuse, as well as to exploit its striking appearance.[18] The platypus also gives them freedom to “make stuff up” since “no one knows very much about [them].”[19]
    Marsh called the characters “cool, edgy and clever without […] being mean-spirited.” According to Povenmire, their animation director, Rob Hughes, agreed: “in all the other shows every character is either stupid or a jerk, but there are no stupid characters or jerks in this one.”[2]

    Creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh worked together on the Nickelodeon series Rocko’s Modern Life. The Creators also voice two of the main B-plot characters: Major Monogram and Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Phineas and Ferb was conceived after Povenmire sketched a triangular boy—the blueprint for the eponymous Phineas—in a restaurant. Povenmire and Marsh developed the series concept together and pitched to networks for 16 years before securing a run on Disney Channel.[1]
    The series is also known for its musical numbers, which have appeared in almost every episode since the first-season “Flop Starz”. Disney’s managers particularly enjoyed the episode’s song, “Gitchee, Gitchee Goo”, and requested that a song appear in each subsequent episode.[2] The show’s creators write and record each number, and vary musical tempo depending on each song’s dramatic use.[3] The music has earned the series a total of four Emmy nominations: in 2008 for the main title theme and for the song “I Ain’t Got Rhythm” from the episode “Dude, We’re Getting the Band Back Together”,[4] and then in 2010 for the song “Come Home Perry” from the episode “Oh, There You Are, Perry” as well as one for its score. The series has also been popular with adults.[5][6][7] Phineas and Ferb is currently on its third season

    The show follows the adventures of stepbrothers Phineas Flynn (Vincent Martella) and Ferb Fletcher (Thomas Sangster), who live in the fictional town of Danville, somewhere in the Tri-State area. Their older sister, Candace Flynn (Ashley Tisdale), is obsessed with two things throughout the show. One is “busting” Phineas and Ferb’s schemes and ideas, usually calling their mother to report the boys’ activities in an attempt to get them in trouble, but is never successful because of events that transpire in another subplot. Second she is somewhat obsessed with her now boyfriend Jeremy. [2] Meanwhile, the boys’ pet platypus, Perry, acts as a secret agent for an all-animal government organization[10][11] called the O.W.C.A. (“Organization Without a Cool Acronym”), fighting Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.[12]
    Much of the series’ humor relies on running gags used in every episode with slight variation.[13] For example, several episodes feature an adult asking Phineas if he is too young to be performing some complex activity, to which he responds “Yes, yes I am.” Also, Phineas and Ferb, along with other characters, before starting their inventions, ask, “Hey, where’s Perry?”.[1] Perry and Doofenshmirtz’s confrontations generally lead to the destruction or disappearance of whatever Phineas and Ferb are constructing or taking part in that day.[12][13]
    Aspects of the show’s humor are aimed at adults,[14] including its frequent pop-cultural references.[15] Co-creator Dan Povenmire, sought to create a show that was less raunchy than Family Guy—having previously worked on the show—but had the same reliance on comic timing, employing humorous blank stares, expressionless faces and wordplay.[16] Povenmire describes the show as a combination of Family Guy and SpongeBob SquarePants.[17] Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, the other co-creator, said the show was not created just for kids, but simply did not exclude them as an audience.[14]

    Characters

    Main article: List of Phineas and Ferb characters

    A platypus was included in the series due to its interesting appearance.[18]

    The series’ main characters live in a blended family, a premise the creators considered underused in children’s programming and which reflected Marsh’s own upbringing. Marsh considers explaining the family background “not important to the kids’ lives. They are a great blended family and that’s all we need to know.”[19] The choice of a platypus as the boys’ pet was similarly inspired by media underuse, as well as to exploit its striking appearance.[18] The platypus also gives them freedom to “make stuff up” since “no one knows very much about [them].”[19]
    Marsh called the characters “cool, edgy and clever without […] being mean-spirited.” According to Povenmire, their animation director, Rob Hughes, agreed: “in all the other shows every character is either stupid or a jerk, but there are no stupid characters or jerks in this one.”[2]
    Music

    Main article: List of Phineas and Ferb songs
    “Every episode since [Flop Starz] has a song in it. It’s not always the characters singing onscreen — they don’t break into song just to advance the plot. The music doesn’t come out of nowhere, sometimes it’s just a montage over action. We’ve done every genre known to man: ABBA, Broadway show tunes, 16th-century madrigals”

    Dan Povenmire on the songs.[2]

    Phineas and Ferb follows structural conventions Povenmire and Marsh developed while writing Rocko’s Modern Life, whereby each episode features “a song or a musical number, plus a big action/chase scene”.[2] Both creators had musical backgrounds, as Povenmire performed rock’n’roll in his college years[20] and Marsh’s grandfather was the bandleader Les Brown.[14]
    The creators’ original pitch to Disney emphasized Perry’s signature “secret agent theme” and the song “Gitchee Gitchee Goo” from the episode “Flop Starz”. Disney’s managers enjoyed the songs and asked Povenmire and Marsh to write one for each episode.[2]
    The songs span many genres, from 16th-century madrigals to Broadway show tunes.[2] Each is written in an intensive session during episode production: a concept, score, and lyrics are developed quite quickly.[3] Together, Marsh and Povenmire can “write a song about almost anything” and in only one hour at most.[19] After they finish writing the song, Povenmire and Marsh sing it over the answering machine of series composer Danny Jacob on Friday nights. By the following Monday the song is fully produced.[21]
    The title sequence music, originally named ‘Today is Going to be a Great Day’ and performed by the American band Bowling for Soup,[12] was nominated for an Emmy award in 2008.[4] The creators originally wrote a slower number, more like a “classic Disney song”, but the network felt changes were needed to appeal to modern children and commissioned a rock/ska version which made the final cut.[9]
    A season 2 clip show broadcast in October 2009 focused on the music of Phineas and Ferb, featuring a viewer-voted top-10 of songs from the series; the end result was the “Phineas and Ferb’s Musical Cliptastic Countdown.”[22]
    Origins

    Phineas and Ferb co-creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh in 2009.

    Early inspirations

    Co-creator Dan Povenmire attributes the show’s genesis to growing up in Mobile, Alabama, where his mother told him never to waste a day of summer. To occupy himself, Povenmire undertook projects such as hole-digging and home movie-making. Povenmire recalled, “My mom let me drape black material all the way across one end of our living room to use as a space field. I would hang little models of spaceships for these little movies I made with a Super 8 camera.”[1][9][23] He was an artistic prodigy and displayed his very detailed drawings at art shows.[20] Meanwhile, Marsh grew up in a large, blended family.[14] As with Povenmire, Marsh spent his summers exploring and taking part in several different activities in order to have fun.[2]
    Conception

    Drawn on butcher paper, this first drawing of Phineas began a rapid growth of characters and the outline of the artistic style.[2]

  7. meiling

    Dear sensible readers, just ask yourself a few questions:

    1) Hong Lim Park is the only legal venue to wave flag, shout and march. There are thousands of places to host a charity event, why YMCA must host at HLP?
    2) The original plan by YMCA is to start event in the morning, why change to afternoon?
    3) NParks can avoid the confrontation by informing the parties their allocated time slot and usage of the plot A or B when they are applying for the event, why make last minute announcement?
    4) NParks director could avoid the hostility by talking nicely and offering resonable alternative time or venue if two events are not compatible, why bring in plainsclothe policemen?
    5) YMCA organiser could have protected their special kids by not releasing them on to the stage when it is clear that the protestors are marching past the stage, why cry over spilt milk?
    6) Teo Ser Luck could have stop the march there and then if he think the march is not appropriate, why only complaint on Facebook later? And why is he so free keep changing his Facebook comment 10-20 times?

    Any sensible readers with half a brain would be able to tell that this is a ploy by PAP to sully Roy’s good reputation by making him look bad.

    • Why why why

      Why did the gang decided to go out of their allocated area?

      Why did the gang choose to change the protest from 20th Sept to that date?

      Why did Roy and his gang marched back to the stage when he claimed to walked away once the children were on stage performing?

      How to talk nicely when dealing with an argumentative person who just keep demanding in a very shrill voice to show proof?

      How do you want Teo Ser Luck to stop the march when the gang had already refused to listen to police and NParks director and did the march not once but THREE times? By lying down in their path to form a human blockade?

      All I can say is Roy is stupid to fall into such a obvious “trap” which wouldn’t happen if he decided to behave sensibly instead of doing such a brainless gung ho action thinking that Singaporeans would praise him for being brave for protesting in front of a minister.

  8. Letter to the national courts in Singapore

    Respecting the national courts in Singapore

    Dear Your Honor, please allow the information delivery for the 6 defendants do not guilty plea of justification

    May free the six defendant from a criminal charge by a verdict of not guilty. There are ten reasons for the six defendant was acquitted .

    1)

    Based on the concept of crime, that endangers the sovereignty, territorial integrity and security and undermine the economic order, violation of state-owned property or property owned collectively by the laboring masses, the violation of civil privately owned property, violation of the democratic rights of citizens, is a crime, but the circumstances are obviously minor little risk, and is not considered a crime.

    2)

    They are no previous criminal record.
    They have neither motive for the crime nor essential characteristics of crime.

    3)

    Procession, shouting slogans, waving national flags, lifting banners, Whistling, etc. within the speak corner only, not come out of the Hong Lim Park .

    on 27 Sept 2014 , The reason for the 6 the six defendant express the passion so high, this is because in last 4 months, nobody plan a dialogue with these miserable people.

    face to the famine victim, the minister by the name of Mr. Teo Ser Luck, even brought those children with disabilities into the protest site, he want such sick children sacrifice their weekend to dance for him .

    Later, Minister Teo Ser Luck for such aroused indignation way felt shame, he made ​​a public apology and post date on 30 Sep 2014 – 4:48pm

    below are the evidence of his public apology

    http://therealsingapore.com/content/teo-ser-luck-roy%E2%80%99s-apology-step-forward-i-am-also-sorry-too?fb_action_ids=703437859738332&fb_action_types=og.comments

    Your Honor, the Minister is the witness of the scene, his apology, more than enough to prove that the above defendant is not guilty .

    4)

    On that day of 27 Sept, the National Garden Bureau and the police officers did not produce any government documents explain the decision to revoke the permit of assembly.

    the National Garden Bureau and the police officers in charge were present, they do not appear to intervene or prevent protesters .

    This shows that the above 6 defendant more than enough are no crime.

    5 )

    Even former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong explained about the Hong Lim Park event is: single-plank bridge on two sheep who also refused to let anyone go question.

    Obviously, Your Honor, as a last resort we must mention the key person behind the scene that associated with the 6 of them . the key person want to lable the above 6 defendant declared criminals.

    Not because they have sinned, and someone must let them forever be labeled criminals label.
    The law can not according to a person’s intentions.

    6)

    Your Honor,

    Universal Declaration of Human Rights in an universal protection of human rights document UN No. 217A (III) resolution on 10 December 1948 by which the provisions of Article 7: everybody is equal before the law. equality before the law and entitled to equal legal protection, without discrimination. All are entitled to equal protection.

    The reason the protests that people’s pension have been misappropriated into the fund of Temasek , thus people demanded the return of our CPF.

    What is Temasek ? is the investment company. what is the investment . There is an risk of an enlarged its investment quota increase with the degree of risk for the price. That is, more higher investment , more higher risk. So any investment is risky.

    So do not take the people’s pension is used of investment.

    However, the CPF is the people’s own hard earned money, No boday have the right to take without informed for investment, it was a violation of private property of citizens, the guilty was not the above 6 defendants, they are victims, fighting for survival are not criminals

    7 )

    When Prime Minister Lee one-sidedly announced to delay 10 years return the people’s CPF, suspected in connection with his wife’s Temasek Holdings lost 40 billion USD in the United States related.

    the news was only the people know from reported of US television

    In response to this, it requires audit Temasek, and also wondered if she was also losing money in other countries.

    after Roy’s detectives, found the Minister of Finance and Temasek boss, is the same person of Prime Minister Lee, it cause the public question the violation of the laws of the Independent phenomenon, Roy offended Prime Minister Lee, apocalyptic results.

    Questioner were not criminals.

    8 )

    this is an internal contradictions among the people. And speaker are innocence.

    In particular, the Singapore media and everything are under PM Lee family controlled, the local newspaper everyday only singing the praises for the PM . No voice for the common people, it is ill system.

    that were so, Singapore law ‘s connotation and extension are in the balance as much as possible the protection of civil liberties and the human rights to survive. only the law can assist Singapore constitutional give the right to citizens to protest for their brothers and sister those suicide, jobless, homeless, crowded together with parents, can not afford to get married and have children, no union protection , elderly people without basic welfare, being persecuted……

    The purpose of the law is not for punish people. should give them a chance to learn from past mistakes.

    9 )

    your Honor,

    Roy Ngerng Yi Ling , Hanhuihui and another 4 defendants represent the aspirations of our people.

    they are the spokesperson on behalf of the people of Singapore, in the past, definitely sent them into prison, accepted forever tortured until completely been destroyed their life.

    Those more than one thousand or more victims, they are now live in every corner of the world,

    this is extremely serious fascist atrocities, soon it will place on the table of the UN office, around the world people strongly condemned it.

    All these have increased the dictator in Singapore was infamous , Every family has a tragic history with tears and blood.

    This indirect ” killing ” , has been eliminated early in civilized society , should never be repeated in Singapore

    10 )

    your Honor

    Please come back to read Roy’s blog, To find the beginning of the truth.

    They took away people’s pension, deprivedpeople’s work, deprived the right of survival, and now want to take his life away …..

    Finally, it is worth mentioning the truth, Temasek without notifying the owner of the pension , taken away from the pension account to invest. And Temasek boss is Prime Minister Lee ‘s wife , she is neither economics expert, nor accounting, is it kidding ? handed up to her the people’s pension and let she lost $ 40 billion without any question ?

    Now Temasek has been gradually privatized, she alleged misappropriation of state property crime.

    Prime Minister Lee sue for defamation first, since Roy is the first person dare to question him. however did not get to meet his requirement.

    So staged a farce, arranged for children with disabilities staged a desperate measure

    Especially ,after one month occurred the criminal suit against Roy and other 5 people , It is a coincidence that when Prime Minister Lee had just returned from abroad sightseeing.

    Obviously, everything is in accordance with the intent of Prime Minister Lee.

    Prime Minister Lee is suspected that did not win by use civil law to prosecute Roy achieve his goals, then switch to the Criminal Code to deal with protesters, visible sinister means. Harm countless innocent people.

    the case are clear ,
    Your Honor

    please redress the grievances of our citizens.
    redress the unfair situation for the above 6 defendants

    We hope the will judge order an investigation processing into Temasek, invite Prime Minister Lee to appear in court to clarify, and hold them accountable.

    • Sin

      You can’t reason, through civility, with the power that be. You can’t resort to street indignation either.
      I wonder where International court of law stands in this.

  9. Jg

    Roy quickly change yr lawyer to the one that write the letter to the national court His plea is what you would said Perfect

  10. Rosseau

    Spoke to 3 people to donate to your funds to your posb about what happened on Monday. Many people are angry with the bullying. PAP is making such a mess out of your situation that many of the opposition are not commenting on your issue as they want PAP to continue to shoot themselves in both their feets and they are doing a fine job looking as manipulative suppressive bullies.

  11. Promises should be kept by everybody

    Perhaps it’s time for another update regarding your monthly $5300 donations from your supporters and the $110 000 donations received for your court case. There is nary a whisper regarding your expenditures despite your promise to be accountable and transparent. But you can spare the time to ask for another donation for your current fiasco when there is an excess of $40000 from the previous donation which you could have used first before asking for more.

    Are your words worth so little that you do not see the need to honour it?

    By the way, you are not being charged for speaking up, you are being charged for disrupting a public event and causing a nuisance. It could have been even worse as you were investigated for unlawful assembly but the police choose not to charge you with the more severe charge. So please do not play the martyr and avoid responsibility for your actions by saying that you are becoming a criminal for speaking up.

    • LawAndOrder

      Why don’t you pressure and shame the pastors and ministers/MPs for lack of financial transparency? Roy is no diffent from a pastor who makes money from talking – or to you, talking rubbish.

      What they don’t want done to them they will avoid being hypocritical in doctrines and laws. Or they will ensure the laws will be interpreted in their favor.

      • Promises should be kept by everybody

        I am sorry but what has the matter of Roy not honouring his promise got to do with pastors and ministers?

      • LawAndOrder

        They all made promises but religious leaders made the most incredulous promises and claims and nobody hold them accountable for their words or sue them.
        What do they have in common? They serve people with their big mouth and get paid for spouting nonsense!

    • someone

      fyi the excess from the previous donation is kept for fighting on the case. do you have brains or not? you think it only cost $70k to fight this case? you all are sooo selfish and mean. only think roy kept the money for his own luxury use? do you think he is having abalone every meal with the money or buying branded cars or splurging a holiday in europe? answer is No. the excess amount is to help him tide through this case. if you have no common sense and a pea size brain. pls keep quiet.

      • LawAndOrder

        He should have devoted himself to an unseen god and made ludicrous promises to devotees because in Singapore, there are many idiots who would pay good money to build the unseen god kingdom, basically empire of the religious leader, and even pay for every word which dribble from his mouth.

      • Promises should be kept by everybody

        Yup, I know it cost more than $70000 but at the moment, I am guessing since he has never stated the expenditures thay that he still has quite a bit of excess funds. So why can’t he use it first for the current fiasco and when he is short of money again, ask for donations at that time? After all he is the innocent one and the public would be happy to help him if his current funds run out.

        @LawAndorder, you are the one who linked Roy not honouring his promise to pastors and ministers, so why can’t I ask you? Or are you trying to say that Roy does not honour his promise to be accountable and transparent because the pastors and ministers do not honour their promise and he is emulating their behaviour. In other words, he is just as dishonourable as them and is just being a hypocrite by criticising the ministers of what he is guilty of as well.

      • LawAndOrder

        That is about right. It does not take a genius to understand my inference. But even if you want to fault him, his sin is far paler than those who made millions from their big mouth.

      • Why why why

        @LawAndOrder

        Guess what? He doesn’t have to do that as he has already achieved cult status among his followers. Definition of cult “a system of religious veneration and devotion directed towards a particular figure or object, a cult is a religious or other social group with socially deviant and novel beliefs and practices.”

        Proofs
        1) Veneration and devotion such as his followers believes he can do no wrong that all his actions are pure and for the sake of ordinary Singaporeans, that all his mistakes occur as a result of discrimination and traps set by PAP, that he would free us from the rule of the evil PAP and lead us into a glorious future (but he has never state how to achieve permanent low cost of living with high salary, low house and car prices, free healthcare and education etc), he doesn’t have to account for his donations as they are donated freely and willingly

        2) Novel beliefs such as PAP can travel back in time to plan such a well thought out trap using the YMCA, that PAP force Roy and the supporters to march three times in the area used by YMCA, that the PAP are murderers for promoting the Stop at Two policy previously.

        3) Socially deviant practices such as it’s perfectly okay to gate crash an event and caused a ruckus because they were “bullied” by NParks, to say that the disadvantaged children should be happy that Roy and the protesters were livening up the event or that the children wouldn’t know what is going on as they are mentally disabled.

  12. Arron

    The first audit Temasek and Lee Hsien Loong’s account, view his family history, no shipping, no container, no factory, no farm, no bank, no production … he is not the 2G Rich(The Second Generation Rich), his huge money was from where ?

    is it just because he is a party leader or prime minister ?

    we knew that party and the states were not the profit maker

    So, again ! his huge money is from where ?

    According to the ICAC law, he must publish.

    the others are secondary

  13. lawAndOrder

    Cult/religion is divisive and even dangerous. Truth, on the other hand, unites the people. Will your revered  leader’s way be acceptable or work in the real world? Will PAP style of governance work in the world? If not, it is only a matter of time you reap the consequences of false hope.

    SINGAPORE — The highest court of the land yesterday upheld the law criminalising sex between men, ruling that the guarantee of equal protection under the law as enshrined in Article 12 of the Singapore Constitution touched only on issues relating to religion, race, place of birth and descent, not gender, sex and sexual orientation.

    Neither does the statute violate the right to life and liberty — as stipulated in Article 9 — as this referred only to the personal liberty of a person from unlawful incarceration and not the right of privacy and personal autonomy.

    Looks like the religious dirty bastards have dictated that they have more legal rights, than you, to decide how you should orgasm in the privacy of your bedroom. Since you have no right of privacy, their repressed horny people will be watching, or poking their dirty noses into, your parents or you having sex – in today’s world, it is technologically possible – while putting their baton to ….creative uses.

  15. Audit Temasek

    Temasek chief Ho Ching handed prestigious Asia House business award ?

    If Temasek do not take money out for engaging in relationships, who care about you Temasek ?

    Obviously they give themselves whitewash,

    I am very happy to be here tonight in this historical and very beautiful building. Although it’s been associated with some interesting events in the past in Britain.

    First, let me thank the Trustees of Asia House for their kind and gracious award. I am very much honoured to accept it as a recognition of Temasek, and more importantly, the Temasek team, past and present.

    As you know, I come from Singapore: it’s a small island! So I thought, as we relax among friends this evening, please allow me to share a little of the story of Singapore and Temasek with you.

    ————————————————– First of all, congratulations to Ho Ching

    2)

    A Humble Beginning

    Singapore was already known in the second century to the Roman-Greco world as a trading post. Ptolemy named it Sabana. Third century merchants from China called it Pu Luo Zhong – the Island at the End. This little island is much, much smaller than Britain, the island at the other end of the world in the west – in fact, Singapore is less than half the size of London.

    In 1819, nearly 200 years ago, Sir Stamford Raffles took over Singapore toward the tail-end of the Anglo-Dutch spice trade tussle in the Far East. This little island trading post grew quickly, and Singapore was soon firmly anchored into the British Empire by the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1824 seems very long ago !

    Fast forward another 120 years to the end of World War II in 1945. Britain began to devolve its colonial powers through various forms of self-government around the world. The first Singapore municipal elections were held in 1948.

    Some 11 years later, in 1959, Singapore was granted its first full, internal self-government, with her own Head of State in place of a British Governor. Defence and foreign affairs remained under British charge, with the headquarters of the British Far East Forces centred in Singapore.

    The newly elected Singapore Government of 1959 soon discovered – to their utter dismay – that they were staring at a budget deficit of some S$14 million for the year. The government kitty had also been emptied by their predecessor government, to the tune of some 10% of the island’s GDP of a quarter billion pounds .

    —————————————— Right, just missing the early immigrants from various clans is the real starting point.
    3 )

    The newly minted Prime Minister and his new finance minister went to work with a vengeance. They cut their own salaries by almost a quarter; allowances of top civil servants were also reduced. Projects were shelved. It was an all-out effort and push to reduce the deficit for the year.

    It was not an easy time. Emotions ran high, as you can imagine, with this unprecedented salary reduction. But, logic and example prevailed, and the civil service pulled together.

    ———————————— Still no mention of the presence of various ethnic immigrants and all walks of life, Just mention Prime Minister and his salaries again ?

    4 )

    By the end of the year, the Finance Minister reported a surplus of S$1 million. This surplus in the first year of self-government set the tone and timbre for fiscal prudence and budget discipline for successive governments to come.

    ————————— ———— if ” the Finance Minister reported a surplus of A$1 million. ” , shall Like the British Government issued every elderly living expenses. instead of using investment. you may tell to your husband don’t persecuted the people of Singaporeans ? don’t hurt Roy, Han huihui and the other 4 defendants again.

    5 )

    Next came the 1965 crisis, or nationhood development. This time, Singapore found itself bereft of a large hinterland overnight, after the short lived merger with Malaysia. This left the tiny and newly independent nation, scrambling and scrabbling for a living and for living space. Per capita income was all of S$ 1,600, or £184 in those days. Average life expectancy was a little over 64 years.

    But troubles never come singly. In late 1967, barely two years into Singapore’s independence, Britain – facing her own financial crisis – decided to cut spending by withdrawing her military forces east of the Suez by 1971.

    The British forces in Singapore were not just a security umbrella for trade to flow freely through the Straits of Malacca through the east. They also accounted for some 20% of Singapore’s GDP, and were the largest single source of employment on the island.

    No wonder few in those days gave Singapore any odds to survive on her own. It had, it has, no mineral wealth, little water and no hinterland to speak of. It was a trading post, dependent on entrepot trade, with almost no industries. And 20% of its GDP, as well as jobs, would soon be gone.

    —————————— ———- which country have wealth from the beginning ? you mean that only one family created the wealth ? and not the people of Singaporeans ? No, the wealth resources if the people of Singapore.

    comes from people’s Ingenuity and hard working. Fishermen rely on fishing for a living, porter by strength breadwinner, Seafarers sailing, Open warehouse, restaurant, schools, Doctors save lives, People who have land farming, shipping brought Trading, Folk opened the lending, Repair man opened the car dealers….. that early time Singaporeans People live a calm life, no GDP, no PM, no MP, no competition, no persecution, no white terror from British colonies …… basically everyone is treated equally

    A Fight for Survival

    A massive manpower conversion programme was started immediately to train base personnel for new jobs. Swamps were drained to make a new industrial town for factories, to make up for the withdrawal of the British forces.

    Young investment promotion officers were soon button-holing dinner guests in the Philippines, USA, Japan, in Britain itself and in Europe to invest in Singapore. The Government was prepared to provide loans or put in risk capital as a co-investor to encourage the likes of Cerebos, a chicken essence producer from the UK, to start up plants and create new jobs for her people.

    British naval dockyards were converted into ship repair yards, so that workers could retain their jobs. Military electrical workshops were transformed into electrical services companies.

    Yet, in the midst of the desperate drive to attract investments and create jobs, Singapore saw how choking pollution and tearing smog were engulfing cities in USA, like Los Angeles, in Europe and Japan.

    And so in 1970, barely 5 years after independence, Singapore set up an Air Pollution Unit, reporting directly to the Prime Minister.

    The Government was prepared to lose investments which didn’t comply with the standards for clean air. Even as we strove for survival, we wanted to make sure we didn’t pollute or despoil our air, water and land for our people and our future generations.

    Our resolution was tested early. When Singapore was bidding for a petrochemical investment, against strong international competition, the Government required the potential investor to install scrubbers to minimise pollution, even at the risk of losing that investment. The scrubbers were duly installed.

    When 1971 arrived, the island hummed with companies, big and small. Factories, local and foreign, were busy producing for the world. There was no massive unemployment from the British pullout. And so, there was a collective sigh of relief.

    That year, 1971, also saw our first annual Tree Planting Day – it was a symbolic, but also very important, commitment to keep our environment clean and green. Industrialisation, in our minds, was to go hand in hand with green, beautiful nature for our people and children.

    ———————————– ————— In the meantime, the British gone, after set up PM system, a lot of innocent spokesman was betrayed, about the more than one thousand people have been tortured in prison by fascist means, some more than 37 years.

    Singapore like a child, always grow in, CPF was promised as a pension monthly borrowed by government till 55 years old
    So the people of Singapore come up with their own pensions, building national.

    Despite this period, people insist on live frugally to help pay of huge price for the Prime Minister,
    after took the large sums of money, the Prime Minister did not stop the persecution of Singaporeans who tolerance him in every possible way. PM fighting for his salary, but never fighting for the rice of the people,

    Yes spent people’s pension and built up a beautiful Singapore , but PM’s heart is not beautiful , He built his private garden in Singapore, since last 50 years , No welfare for the elderly, pregnant women no nutrition before birth to children with disabilities , it ranking number one in the World, workers have no union protection, Bankruptcy scale and proportion of suicide ranked first in the World… he did nothing for the common people in Singapore. never have one single case to prove he ever help his people in Singapore .

    7 )
    An unplanned birth

    Nine years into independence, as Singapore emerged from the series of crises, the Government found itself to be an owner of a smorgasbord of companies.

    Government loans for businesses had already been spun out earlier to form the Development Bank of Singapore, today, DBS, the largest bank in South East Asia.

    It was not the business of government to be looking after shares and investments in businesses and companies. These ranged from minority shares in a hotel to a wholly owned Bird Park; from a co-investment in a commercial detergent maker to an innovative open-concept zoo as a wholly owned public good.

    And so Temasek was formed in 1974, to take over this mixed bag of companies and investments, from a golf shoemaker to Cerebos, the chicken essence producer from the UK.

    ————————————– yes, included all people’s wisdom , but the number of pension ‘s contributions from the beginning of one million grows to three million later,PM wants more money again, he has a large appetite for money, and he asked for astronomical salary for himself, honest Singaporeans once again tolerated him, continue to live frugally. Suicide, premature death, homeless, countless.

    since large sum of pension come in, So Temasek birth.

    8 ) The Temasek DNA

    While Temasek didn’t start with a blue print or a grand master plan, its very name – Temasek – was an old name for Singapore.

    The ethos of Temasek was already shaped at birth by the post-war history of Singapore – to live within our means and be financially disciplined; to do the right things with tomorrow clearly in our minds, particularly for our future generations; to make sure that our drive for survival and prosperity go hand in hand with a respect and a nurturing of a clean and green environment for our people.

    From the start, the Government took a hands-off approach to Temasek. Subsidies were most definitely out of the question.

    Companies in our portfolio were allowed to fail, as the golf shoemaker did subsequently. Neither Temasek nor the Government would be there to bail them out.

    With that accountability came the responsibility to make their own decisions. The Government – and it took discipline on their part – played no part in the commercial decisions of the companies. And likewise Temasek.

    Take Singapore Airlines for instance, or SIA, as we call it in Singapore. From day one, SIA knew it had to innovate and compete internationally, or fold – after all, there was not much domestic air traffic opportunity for an island which is all of 30 miles at its widest span; just a little further than a marathon run!

    SIA never had to ask Temasek, much less the Government, whether it should buy Boeing or Airbus planes, or whether it should add or withdraw capacity from particular routes – SIA made its own commercial decisions as an airline company.

    Few of its international competitors in the airline industry operate with such commercial independence, away from Government subvention and influence – even today.

    The greatest gift, at birth, from the Singapore Government to SIA was to help negotiate with the British Government then for air rights.

    Indeed, SIA’s success today owes much to the UK Government’s early approval for it to fly to London at its very start.

    The second gift from the Singapore Government was to run a clean and lean government, and an efficient economy that is well plugged into the global market.

    And so SIA had the freedom to become a global pace setter – it changed the norms and standards for airline travel. If I remember correctly, it was the first airline in the world to offer free alcohol on flights. And so, SIA managed to thrive and grow with Singapore.

    Singapore Airlines is but one of the many examples of our portfolio companies that have succeeded through innovation and sheer determination, and not state support. Many of these companies grew with Singapore’s transformation, and Temasek grew with them.

    The path had not been always smooth. Whenever economic storms threatened, management in Temasek set an example by reducing their own salaries, no different from what the first self-government of Singapore did.

    The most recent was during the global finance crisis of 2008: Temasek senior management volunteered cuts of up to 25%, while junior staff took smaller cuts. It was a show of solidarity to be ready for rough weather. But it also served as a sharp, quick signal to the rest of the Temasek portfolio companies in Singapore to be prepared for very rough weather ahead.

    It was this collective drive for survival, and a commitment to the long term that enabled Temasek and the Temasek portfolio companies to survive and thrive.

    And the old British naval and harbour yards? The two competing yards, one a former naval dockyard, and the other a former harbour board repair yard, have today become the leading deep water rig builders in the world.

    They built the three rigs which successfully plugged the oil gush of the 2010 Gulf of Mexico spill. One of them, Keppel Offshore and Marine, based just one degree north of the equator, also built ice breakers for Russia’s Arctic operations! I found that very interesting.

    ————————————— Singapore’s Temasek is peoples contributed their pension, so the Temasek financial situation must be published annually. Singaporeans DNA must not be shy or hide. as the CEO, your income also needs to report to the public . This is consistent with the spirit of honest.

    by the way, do you have any plan for benefit return to the people who contributed their while life pension on Temasek ?

    The Spirit of Temasek

    Friends, ladies and gentlemen:
    This year, Temasek is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

    We have tried to capture the spirit of Temasek in our Temasek Charter – as an active investor and long term shareholder, as a forward looking institution and above all, as a trusted steward.

    Meritocracy and integrity, as Stuart has mentioned just now, are our watchwords. We invest in businesses which operate and compete effectively for the long term, and not take short cuts at the expense of the community at large. These ideas and ideals influenced our thinking from the earliest days about our roles and responsibilities for the long term.

    For instance, we puzzled over how we can foster an owner’s mindset in Temasek. We mulled over various ideas, and decided some ten years ago to introduce deferred compensation plans, linked to risk adjusted returns.

    For our senior folks, a substantial part of our bonuses and incentives are deferred for as long as 12 years, or about two business cycles. This aims to foster a long term ownership mindset.

    If the returns are not sustained, we share negative bonuses – in other words, bonus claw backs. In so doing, we try to align interests and behaviour towards long term ownership.

    We engage our portfolio companies and other stakeholders around the world, with a view to fostering good governance.

    These are unusual disciplines to which we subject ourselves in order to build the institution for the long term.

    ——————————– Your husband is a finance minister, you are the CEO of Temasek, which is an violation of family control of state assets Against the Independent law, Now don’t say too much, you and your husband may announce your family ‘s financial assets to the public , that is real Spirit of Temasek !

    ” a substantial part of our bonuses and incentives are deferred for as long as 12 years, or about two business cycles ? ”

    As long as you do not spend the pension money,who care about your business cycles ?

    Be sure to audit Temasek.

    Trusted Steward

    Underlying all these various systems and initiatives is the idea that we work for a better tomorrow, as a responsible and trusted steward.

    Businesses do not exist in isolation from the society or their communities, nor the forces that shape us all.

    Much like Britain had supported Singaporeans in our early years through programmes such as the Colombo Plan scholarships, we, too, hope to play our part as a responsible stakeholder and a trusted steward, in and outside of Singapore.

    Thus, 10 years ago, we committed to set aside a portion of our returns above our risk adjusted hurdle. This was to be used to uplift the community at large, particularly in a developing Asia.

    To date, we have established and sponsored 16 community endowments, each with specific mandates to build people, to build capabilities, to build bridges between communities and to rebuild lives.

    These endowments are driven by separate, independent and passionate, thoughtful teams.

    From funding less glamorous research into mental health or Parkinson’s disease, to developing pilot programmes to support ageing-in-place; from lending a helping hand to caregivers, single parents and traumatised children, to programmes for disaster recovery and rebuilding lives; from bringing together youth across a diverse Asia to learn and grow together, to programmes on governance and town planning for civil servants from around Asia – these are but a small sliver of what the various endowment staff have done, to touch the lives over 170,000 people across Asia over the last decade.

    Conclusion

    Friends, Ladies and Gentlemen:

    Singapore will be celebrating its 50th year of independence next year. It has been a journey which has made a difference to the lives of our people. In less than five decades, per capita GDP has grown over 100 times in US$ terms . Life expectancy went from less than 65 years in 1965 to over 82 years last year.

    As you can see, we may have owed our success to that fateful decision to withdraw British forces from Singapore by 1971 – that decision forced us to innovate and industrialise at great pace.

    Temasek, at forty this year, is part of the Singapore story. Our journey has just begun. We will, yet again, embark on a new journey of change and challenge, but also of hope and opportunities.

    As we face the uncertain world of change, and the exciting challenge of the Digital Age, I do hope that Singapore and Temasek will have the honour and privilege to work with many of you here, to make a difference – to bring about a better and kinder world, a more sustainable and thoughtful world, and above all, a more peaceful, compassionate and inclusive world.

    Thank you.

    ——————————— we thank you too. but your husband office team threat, curse people get out, shows that your husband is a problem leader. no compassionate and inclusive.

    PM office make your fanmily going Down soon, let your husband stop persecuting Roy, HHH and other people !

    Minister wrong is helping Singaporeans to invest (ST)..hahaha…hey Mr wrong…. many invested and put in good money in your land and you have played them out by OVER BUILDING(10s of thousands new homes are flooding the market. adding to 10s of thousands empty units already in the market)…now who will benefit from your management? ….FOREIGNERS… they will save from cheap rentals…and many who invested(Singaporeans) are bleeding from vacancy. … with so many units unoccupied… owners living in new condos are feeling eerie. ..

    Your idiotic kind reaped from the sale of the land and those who heed your call to invest have been cheated by your idiotic kind…where is your conscience.?….. your children should be ashamed to have you as parents

    You cheat and hurt Singaporeans through your ECONOMIC MISMANAGEMENT

      When good people murder with their eyes open… they don’t call it murder… they call it national service.

      That is a Priest to hell for the one to bury is our Sick PM as his Cancel is in it final phrase, how long to go he knows and that is why he goes for holidays now often and goes to Fengshang to be near the only people who supported him for when you are near someone, there cannot tells you OFF right, my Priest who preaches nonsense at the Churches.

  20. Promises should be kept by everybody

    Perhaps it’s time for another update regarding your monthly $5300 donations from your supporters and the $110 000 donations received for your court case. There is nary a whisper regarding your expenditures despite your promise to be accountable and transparent. But you can spare the time to ask for another donation of $42000 for your current fiasco. Why can’t you use the excess cash you have now for the current fiasco and when you are short of money again, ask for donations at that time? After all you are the innocent and martyred one and the public will be happy to you if your current funds run out in the future.

    Are your words worth so little that you do not see the need to honour it?

    By the way, you are not being charged for speaking up, you are being charged for disrupting a public event and causing a nuisance. It could have been even worse as you were investigated for unlawful assembly but the police choose not to charge you with the more severe charge. So please do not play the martyr and avoid responsibility for your actions by saying that you are becoming a criminal for speaking up.

  21. Promises should be kept by everybody

    Also, why is Ivan Koh a businessman, also know as the guy who keep shouting murderer PAP in the video asking for donations? He is not some penniless homeless guy that has no savings of his own.
