Expected date of completion pushed back just because.

The review on the sale of software by PAP town councils to PAP-owned company Action Information Management (AIM) has once again been extended.

The Ministry of National Development (MND), which is conducting the review in the interest of transparency in January — following accusatory exchanges between the Workers’ Party (WP) and PAP town councils and AIM — had said that it was extending the review by a month at the start of April after the public perceived them to be taking their own sweet time.

However, April came and went, and then nothing.

But New Nation now understands that the deadline has again been pushed back and the review is targeted to be completed by GE2016.

One source who is familiar with the review but declined to be named said: “The software in 14 PAP town councils was sold to AIM — the sole bidder — in a tender conducted in 2010. It was chop chop curry pok.”

“Obviously not everything can be carried out as quickly as that. Certainly not this review.”

What would happen to its owners?

Singaporeans from all walks of life have expressed concern that PAP-owned “software” company, AIM, will go under.

This comes after news that AIM — which apparently doesn’t even have a website to show for — will no longer operate the PAP town council computer systems when its contract expires on April 30.

It will also not be participating in the latest tender exercise.

But none of these actually explains why or how can PAP even own a company.

With the possibility of AIM going under looming large, the destiny of its three elderly owners who are ex-PAP MPs, is causing a lot of grieve for Singaporeans.

One concerned Singaporean, who is worried for their well-being, said the trio might want to find a more popular alternative source of income among the elderly: “They should consider doing dish-clearing jobs at hawker centres. Because that is where a lot of old people end up. Without a minimum wage.”

Another Singaporean, Tui Siew Leh, said they can finally retire like almost everyone else: “They might want to consider selling tissue paper on the streets.”

Other Singaporeans hope that the three ex-MPs still have enough to finance their homes.

Yes, they comprise Singaporeans from The Silent Majority. Who just want to watch the world burn.

Everyone’s already heard of AIM and the whole saga explained inside out from online and offline sources, right?

So let’s not go there. Let’s go somewhere else…

As the Workers’ Party, PAP and The Straits Times — plus a lot of people inside and outside of the Internet engage in accusations, counter-accusations and petty politicking, there is a (silent) majority of Singaporeans who are just sitting back and thinking to themselves:

The end.

Mothers fear PAP Town Councils will sell their daughters away

Fear stems from how Town Councils can easily develop a computer system using public money and then sell it away.

The guy on the left is Chandra Das for sure, the other two… erm ya.

A group of several thousand mothers have congregated at various housing estates across Singapore to air their grievances.

The mothers are worried that PAP-led Town Councils might sell their daughters away, in response to the latest news that a computer system developed using public money by town councils was sold to three private individuals from a company called Action Information Management Pte Ltd (AIM).

It was further revealed that the three private individuals are ex-PAP MPs: S Chandra Das, Lau Ping Sum and Chew Heng Ching

One worried mother, Jin Kia Xi, said: “If the PAP Town Councils can use public money to develop a product and then transfer the very product to private hands through a sale, why wouldn’t they sell my daughter away since I have developed her using my own money?”

Given this fear, many have tried to moved within the boundary of Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC), which is managed by the Workers’ Party, a party that is better than PAP.

This has caused flat prices within AHTC to soar, contrary to the prediction made by His Leeness before GE2011 that flat prices will nose dive.

But the only thing that looks set to nose dive is the election votes received by PAP should a by-election be held in Punngol East, because it has been further revealed that the company AIM is fully owned by the PAP.

This will become a much bigger, thornier issue, and it will come back and bite them in the ass.

Because the PAP is a political party but at the same time it is owning a business company with vested and conflicting interest from its political role, which is first and foremost, to take good care of the people without performing too much gymnastics to save their own skin and make WP’s life hell.

And this issue doesn’t even look as bad as how ex-PAP Eurasian sexy beast Michael Palmer sacked himself for porking another woman who was not his wife.

Karma, people, karma.
