Since everybody is into confessing something these days, (I’m talking about all those undergrads talking love and sex on FB), here’s a pop quiz on whether you are up to date on current affairs:
a) I confess that I had no idea that nurses are highly skilled workers
b) I confess that I never thought the Punggol East voters would desert me in droves and leave me out-of-pocket
c) I confess that I am against productivity increases because employing foreign workers is just so much easier
d) I confess that my grassroots leaders aren’t too good at reading the ground sentiments
e) I confess that I absented myself on purpose to avoid voting
f) I confess that I never minded property cooling measures because I am sure I can get around them
g) I confess that I do not want children because I hate them
h) I confess that I did not speak in Parliament because I would have made everything worse
i) I confess I don’t understand the White Paper, but I know I don’t like the 6.9m figure
j) I confess that I don’t know if the 6.9m figure is a projection or a planning parameter or a worst case scenario – but it sure is a non-starter.
k) I confess that we had sex but I won’t confess to anything else
l) I confess that I don’t know how to fix the COE system at all
m) I confess I am already feeling like a burden to the state – and I’m not even 50.
n) I confess I told them not to sell condoms to avoid corrupting bright, young minds
o) I confess I am only here to make money, not to make friends or start a family
p) I confess that I was tempted several times to use my position and stop the stream of bad analogies in Parliament.
q) I confess that I am Singaporean born and bred – and there’s just no one else like me.
No. I am not giving answers to the above.
