You believe? No wonder you have that goondoon nickname

P A P gave Foreigners scholarships, tuition subsidy, jobs, a new home in Singapore with PR status all thrown into the package.

It's the norm for education systems all over the world to provide some funding to international students. For instance, Australia budgeted about $305 million to support this for FY19.

As for scholarships for Singaporeans to study, for example in UK, it can be found here ->

The problem I sees is that there are no checks on such expenditures, no one question these sort of spending. No one voted the oppositions into parliament to question such spending...as such they continue to spend as they like.

I take an example of Taiwan here, DPP won the whole autonomy in 2016 right from President to the legislator representatives in parliament. They have passed on bills and policies which benefited some people, as well as their selected individual. All these has resulted Taiwan to have made loses for the past 3 yrs 7months, but in last year election for the local administration KMT along with a few parties representatives has won over from DPP. Though the DPP oppositions has gained some autonomy locally, but still the central government still has every right to “help” or “help with some caveats”.

With these going on DPP true colours are beginning to show to the public, other than those hardcore supporters of DPP many has realised the party failing to bring their people and state to a better conditions. At least with last year elections that changes that, many things that DPP wanted to do are now being questions.

Then one would argue surely the opposition is KMT therefore they know what to do, but how true is that? There are new representatives who will also learned on the job, and looking back into Singapore surely an equal chance should be given to the new comers to give a try. Just my opinion.

If the MIW holds a general election now, those PMETs that have been replaced by the cheaper FT will definitely not vote for them.

See for Australia. It is for them to RETURN back home to develop their own country. Not stay in Australia to fight for jobs with the Aussies.


Australia Awards Pacific Scholarships provide people from the Pacific the opportunity to study at selected education institutions in the Pacific region, in order to gain and build the knowledge to influence their home country's development.
