In Malaysia, the coming General Election must be held by April 2013. In one of the meet-the-people session, someone asked Datuk Sri Najib Razak, the current Prime Minister of Malaysia this question.

Citizen: “I suggest it is good to rein in the rate of inflation by instilling some sense of prudence among the consumers. For example, the down-payment to buy a car should be set at 30% and not 10% of the selling price of the car, currently.”

PM Najib Razak: “We have two thriving car companies that produce cars, namely; Proton and Perodua. These two companies and their upstream suppliers provide employments to more than 100,000 Malaysians. We need a healthy car market to support these two car companies in order to assure fellow Malaysians get a job and this is good for the economy because of the multiplier effect generate from the consumption as a result of these jobs.”

Across the causeway, Singaporeans can buy a car with a S$1 down-payment and this has been going on for years. The car dealers coined a great word called, over-trade. Over-trade is a term loosely used by the Singapore car dealers more than 2 decades ago with a sole aim to lower the up-front cash down-payment for car buyers.

On the surface, the potential car buyers do not need to save up a single cent before deciding to buy a car. The whole idea is to make it a no brainer for impulsive buyers who do not think thoroughly how he is going to pay for the 10-year installment plan. He just has to sign on the bottom line and here is the key to his brand new car.

To the banks, this is the juiciest kind of loan that brings in the maximum ten-years of interests on a 100% loan for the hire-purchase of car.

To the Singapore government, this is merely one of the greatest robberies that they had created since 1989. It incessantly robs every Singaporean resident in several ways.

1.       COE (Certificate of entitlement) price ranging from S$70,000 to S$90,000 per car sold in Singapore.

2.       High COE price means high selling price for taxi and this led to high taxi fares.

3.       High taxi fares leads to high bus fares.

4.       High bus fares support a higher SMRT fares.

Mr Lee Hsien Loong, please stand up NOW and explain why is there a need for the Singapore government to rob all Singaporeans in the above four ways?

Let me share with you a famous quotation before you make a reply.

In the early 1970’s, General Motors came out with this quote: “What is good for General Motors is good for the United States of America.” General Motors went on to capture almost 80% of the American car market before the Japanese car makers made in-road in to the US car market beginning in the early 1980’s. In year 2009, General Motors almost went bankrupt if not for President George W. Bush who specifically created a Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) that bailed out Detroit with gigantic loans. Three years later, the question of “Is General Motors going bankrupt again?” flooded the Internet news in mid-August 2012.

For decades, the American car buyers know that what is good for General Motors is good for General Motors per se and is definitely not good for them (in terms of poor quality and high selling price) and it has nothing to do with the health of the USA. It is a mere act of the CEO of General Motors who thought he is very smart in coining such a “wonderful quote” to fool the Americans into believing what is good for General Motors is good for America.

Please, Mr Lee Hsien Loong, please. Please do not coin any phrase that rhymes with a similar theme. For examples:

1: “Lowering the COE price is akin to raiding the country reserves.”

Note: Raiding the people’s pocket in the form of high COE prices, higher taxi fares, higher bus fares and higher MRT fares is definitely not right. You cannot deny these cold hard facts.

2: “High COE price is good for the country because it reduces road congestion.”

Note: Increase the down-payment to 30% as suggested would keep the car buyers prudent and it automatically removes road congestion because not many Singaporeans hold enough cash to foot the 30% down-payment to buy a car. This is certainly a much better strategy to remove road congestion and at the same time, it does not raid the people’s pocket in the form of high COE price, high taxi fares, high bus fares and high MRT fares.

Mr Lee Hsien Loong,

Enough misleading talks of “PAP is the ONLY capable political party to lead for the country” because PAP has proven to be extremely capable in robbing the people in every conceivable ways and for decades had made big lies about these hideous ways in the form of information manipulation. Some of the greatest robberies are:

1.       The Great Upgrading program that led to many times increased in the selling price of HDB flats.

2.       The past 3 decades of strong positive GDP growth was solely contributed by the excessively high rate of inflation

3.      Importation of foreign workers to suppress the wage

4.       Catastrophic medical bills

5.       The list goes on and on.  

I just want to get one point across to all fellow Singaporeans. That is, true leadership. The Lee dynasty has all been false leadership.

 

Fellow Singaporeans,

Let put our heart together and make sure PAP is erased from the (political) map of Singapore. We, the united people of Singapore have only one aim.

“Mr Lee Hsien Loong, you are finished. PAP (People’s Action Party) is finished.”
