Toa Payoh couple revealed as aged 46 & 39 ruined ‘Young people are horrible’ narrative

Older people couldn’t carry on with smear campaign against young people as a result.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are older and like a good story to fit their worldview, are shaking their heads in despair.

This after they heard that the Toa Payoh hawker centre couple, who were identified and arrested by the police for shoving an elderly man, are aged 39 and 46 years old.

They felt this completely ruined their narrative that it is only young people who would disrespect an elderly person and youth these days are horrible people who would do all kinds of terrible things.

One older Singaporean, Bai Tou Fa, said: “I was happily telling everybody this Toa Payoh hawker centre couple are young people and young people will be the death of old people.”

“Turns out, the man is old enough to be a grandfather in a few years’ time and the woman is nowhere near young.”

“This completely silenced me as I didn’t have a good story to go on with smearing the young.”

However, other older Singaporeans said age is really just a number.

Another older Singaporean, Lao Lang, said: “If we really wanted to argue about it, 46 and 39 are not that old and they are still considered young Singaporeans, so therefore, young Singaporeans are shit.”

“Let’s admit it: Age is just a number. They are young because they are still mentally young even though they might be physically old.”

“So it is still young people’s fault.”

Lack of free press ensures lives saved.

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris, security of newsrooms throughout the world have been spruced up to protect journalists who might otherwise become targets of violence by extremists who view the written word as a profane threat.

However, no extra security measures will be taken to ensure the Singapore Press Holdings building in Toa Payoh — the only building to house scores of reporters in Singapore as a result of monopolistic behaviour and a lack of a free press — to deter any attacks.

A police spokesperson, Zuo Jing Char, said: “We will not be securing the Singapore Press Holdings building in Toa Payoh with additional police presence. There appears to be no immediate threat or danger to the reporters there as there hasn’t been much pushing of boundaries in years in terms of reporting.”

“I doubt any radicals, be they religious, secular, public or governmental, will go through all that hassle to storm the premises and unleash their fury on reporters, who don’t even pose a threat as they haven’t been as questioning or hard-hitting as reporters elsewhere in the world.”

Staff of SPH have also said they do not feel threatened given the current climate of fear overseas in newsrooms.

Jin Ham Ji, a reporter said: “I doubt anybody wants to kill me. I have not exercised my freedom of speech in years. I spend my days rewriting press releases and attending government events and quoting civil service spokespeople.”

Locals also said that violence against members of the press in Singapore will definitely be overlooked because there is no point picking on the meek in the first place.

Jin Guai Lan, a local said: “This lack of a free press is really a blessing in disguise. It has helped save countless reporters’ lives through a lack of free expression.”
