Comments from the net :

54 years ago, many didn’t have their own home and 16000 just loose theirs in one fire!

ONE man and his team worked tirelessly to build us a nation with many today owning a home using our CPF to fund!

Yet today………
We get a Spider arguing about why he should selfishly pocket every single cent of return his CPF money earns collectively as a nation’s investment,

 Singaporeans aplenty grumbling about not being able to retire at their DESIRED age and

ONE hammer head asking us to consider political culture when all he cared about in his victory speech was to settle a 20 years old score on air instead of concentrate on thanking his supporters and worthy opponent our beloved Mr Yeo!

Many said PAP has become complacent!
Actually are we as a nation not being too complacent too?

Come on Singapore! We can do better than this! Right?
