Transport companies now a huge political liability for PAP

Our transport companies have become a huge political liability for the PAP. Their frequent missteps, the regularly-occurring disruption of train services, and the incessant fare hikes have angered Singaporeans. Singaporeans do not just blame the transport companies for under-performing and under-delivering. They also blame the PAP government for allowing this state of affairs to develop.

Why the continued discrimination against single unwed mothers?

A blanket discrimination against single unwed mothers fails to take into consideration the possible factors why single moms exist. Some may have been forced to be single moms because of the tragic death of a loved one. Others might have chosen to do so because of a desire to protect their kids from a violent partner. How can the government, in good conscience, discriminate against such mothers? In fact, such mothers should be helped even more because of the sacrifice they are making in protecting their young.
