Free passports for babies born after 1 January 2020. Wow!
Such a gesture will not benefit Singaporeans in large numbers for the simple reason that most Singaporean babies do not travel during their initial few years. Perhaps, the Immigration and Checkpoint Authority (ICA) is able to provide the numbers to show how many Singaporean parents’ and their babies travelled in their first 3 years of birth between 2016 to 2018 vs new citizens and their babies. I bet the situation is totally different between new citizens and Singaporeans.
Those too well-paid PAP ministars, instead of thinking hard and thinking through ways to help our citizens in real ways whether it is employment issues or retirement inadequacies or those very expensively priced HDB flats etc, are wasting their time thinking up ways to butter up and pacify new citizens in order to win their electoral votes. It is so very unfortunate indeed.
Dear fellow citizens, if you are still dreaming, sleeping or blindly sucking, please wake-up quickly because there is no more time to waste, otherwise we will all be collateral damages compliment from you. Think!
