our education minister first mentioned about hiring native speakers of the english language to our shore to teach english and help us improve our standard of the language in early JUNE. he was opening the subject to debates and until now a conclusion has not been reached yet, without e education ministry stepping out to say that they are/are not going to go ahead with the plan.
surprise surprise.. an ad from education ministry was published in a britain leading newspaper looking for english, geography, literature and history teachers.. guess when the ad appeared? it was in may and the interview they were holding was in early june is London.
they taking us as fools? what democracy is there? what about being a more open society and allowing the citizens to participate and to share their views in certain policies. they pretend to listen, when decisions have already been made. just like e IR, as last term opposition MP Mr Steve Chia pointed out that before they open the casino to debate, they have already decided, whether or not to go ahead with it depends on how feasible the proposals are. So if they really choose not to go ahead with the casinos, it would be becuz that none of the proposals are good enough, not because of the people's objection.
dun get me wrong, i fully support the decision to create two IRs with casino. it is the way they go about doing things, all of us have been taken for a ride. wth.. credit to The Newpaper, i got this piece of news from there, but its only a report hidden somewhere in the middle. I would have put it on the first page if i was the editor. but still credit for the journalist who wrote about the news. i am beginning to wonder if they understand the true meaning of democracy.. if u cannot practice it, dun fake it.
