PAP must abide by their moral standard

No matter the outcome of FAS new executive council investigation into donategate, one thing is already certain from the information so far; under the reign of former FAS President Zainduin Nordin, the 3 scourge - including Winston Lee and Lim Chin - saw themselves as FAS Feudal Lords and did whatever they wished without any control by the then executive council.

It was wrong and make a mockery of the 'superior system' of forced installation of the FAS President upon Singapore football by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY).

It was their man, former Bishan-Toa Poyah MP, Zainduin Nordin who had engineered this mess by allowing his fellow scourge and subordinate, Winston Lee, to run amok as long as he served the wishes and interest of the FAS President.

The appointment of the puppet, Lim Chin, was for the same reason as he was content to collect his six-figure salary as long as it was not him who was getting sacked or a pay cut. (Remember Tanjong Pagar United incident)

Nothing was done for the interest of Singapore football, only the interest and wishes of the FAS President.

After that come to the headline and  I must said PAP must act now as their man, Zainduin Nordin, is involved in the matter and he is hiding behind the fact he is a former PAP MP, the ruling government, thus he does not answered to anybody.

This is totally ridiculous and a slap on the face of the ruling government constant talks of higher standard of morality from their MPs.

There are many questions to ask other than just the $500k as remember the $200k donation as well which raised other questions.
1) Have he seem those documents from Tiong Bahru and what was his reaction
2) Why was it not debated at executive council as the law stated
3) Was the $200k really for Lions XII or as revealed by TODAY then it was meant as FAM levy (I bet everybody forgotten about this)
4) How much was really given to FAM for LionsXII involvement and where did the money come from
5) How much donation were there really under his reign (Bill Ng money were hide from public view so there may be more)
6) Where did all donation under his reign really go and everything must be stated

Only the PAP executive board can forced the 51-year-old to open his mouth and reveal the whole truth and not hided behind the ridiculous reason he is no longer FAS President as donategate and other matters all happen under his reign and his name was used to hide it from almost the entire FAS Executive Council.

The 3 fedual lords and scourges cannot just walk away now just because they are all, or soon to be, not involved with FAS anymore.

Remember corruption start when the elites ignored failing by their own elites

Lee Kuan Yew will never allowed this as it involved public funds and he always asked the PAP to abide by a higher standard of moral conduct.

Now his son and current Prime Minister can show if PAP is such a party or only one when it does not involved their people.

Overseas trips only benefit elites

This TODAY article is a week long but I still want to respond to it because for me, the issue of importance of overseas trips must be discussed more thoroughly.

Yes it is important, Mr Lim Kia Tong, but does all these trips really benefit Singapore football or just the elites running the game.

As I noted before, still-FAS general-secretary Winston Lee was praised for his overseas works but the domestic game is in a mess.

Now Winston Lee have a job overseas because of what he did but for the local lads, not among these elites, they just have a paycut waiting for them.

The departed worthless and inept Zainduin Nordin was pushing for ASL to get a job after this departure as noted by news article then.

What was the use of all those connections other than to benefit the 3 scourges - including puppet Lim Chin - Singapore football!

These connections will never bring our players overseas as our players do not have a good  reputation and other Asian Associations are not going to push Singapore players to their clubs knowing the backlash.

All we get out of it are a few overseas trial every now and then and we know how it ends.

Also Mr Lim, you have no problems missing local events but have a problem missing even one overseas event and that's a bigger problem for if you're elected, you promised to bring National Football League (NFL) under your direct guidance.

You have no time for local events as it is so are you going to have a nominee but is this not repeating the current FAS model and we have seem how it is working. (All blames to nominee and all credits to Mr Lim etc)

The fact is that there is no shortcuts and only by building the domestic game will it bring Singapore football to greater height and not overseas trips which just benefit the ruling elites.

So in conclusion overseas trips are important but they must not come at the cost of the local game as it is now where the ruling elites spend all their time and efforts overseas while ignoring the local game.
