Selina Lum, a childless woman, mouths off about NS in the ST

Postby PNGMK » Mon, 01 May 2017 5:24 pm

Does this annoy anyone else? She mouths off about NS dodgers and yet as far as I can ascertain has no male children at risk and is your typically self centred consumerist Singapore woman who has benefited from a two year head start over her male school mates. She really needs to shut up.

What is clear is that a defaulter's NS performance and the degree of his connection to Singapore now hold little sentencing value. More importantly, those who completely evade their NS obligations can expect to face the full brunt of the law.

Uh huh. Says a woman who has no idea of the presssures that lead some men (ill advisedly) to "dodge" NS.

What a kunt.

She just basically laid out the impact of the decision of the High Court panel. You got some other vibe from her article that I did not.

Have to agree with bro75, she's just reporting and says nothing about her own opinion.

The sentences I put in italics are her editoralising. If she had some skin the game she'd be a lot more compassionate.

The culprit is the word "clear" but leaving it out this is just a factual statement. It would be odd if she within the context of this whole article all the sudden started to express her sympathy (if she has any).

She is Singaporean (I assume) so does have "skin in the game" even if not directly.

I never understand this statement.

What about people who have gap years?

Or go to work first and then start uni at 20+

There is no two year head start, you leave University at the same time as the other graduates from your year.

By this "head start" logic , you should go to University as young as possible.

I think you have been here too long , its scrambled your mind.
