Nparks is under who? HHH and ST both clueless

Han Hui Hui wrote to Vivian Balakrishnan to ask for the Hong Lim Park ban to be removed, but I don’t think it will work out for her.

REASON? Dr Balakrishnan is the Minister for the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR), and Nparks is under the Ministry of National Development (MND).

ST doesn't know either!

ST doesn’t know either!

Sadly, ST doesn’t know this fact either, and has happily published that Nparks is under MEWR as well. Unless there was a reshuffle today, Nparks is actually a child agency of MND, and Khaw Boon Wan is in charge.

Tragically, our political activists are barking up the wrong tree, and even worse, our newspapers don’t even know.

Handy tip: Warren Fernandez is a board member of Nparks. Yes. The Editor of ST.

Khaw Boon Wan is just sitting there smiling now. 😀

  2. Dude, you have based yr article on ST’s reporting which you have also, rightly, stated that ‘ST also doesn’t know either!’ The only problem is that that ‘either’ doesn’t apply.

    Taking a potshot @ the RSF #149 rated ST should already alert you to the possibility of their ‘not knowing’ the facts in favour of just reporting THEIR ‘story’ as they see it.

    Check out TRE, . Even if we do not think much of HHH, I think, Mr Ravi deserves more.

    Don’t feel bad about it, dude. Being non-professional bloggers, making the occasional mistakes come with the territory…question is, ‘Are you going to, like Lee Hsien Loong, delete this comment that does you little credit’? 🙂

    Cheers, dude!

    • Er, what mistake did i make? HHH and M Ravi did indeed send the first letter to Vivian B. They then followed up by sending a second letter to the correct minister. What are you referring to?

  3. I thought there is such a thing as “no wrong number, or no wrong feedback unit”. Surely V can refer the matter to K. How about the recent Municipal Office or what-have-you – the one stop post-box that the Fu Minister is in charge of?

    • Not sure if the Ministry of Fishball Sticks has been set up properly yet. Last I heard, M Ravi and HHH sent another letter to MND. Guess public attention helps with education!
