    #495 - Did Taylor Swift and STB Strike Deal for Exclusivity? & Messi’s China Backlash Continues

    In response to recent rumours of a Southeast-Asia exclusivity deal, STB and the Ministry of Community, Culture and Youth (MCCY) clarified that a grant had been provided to help bring Taylor Swift’s concert to Singapore, but did not confirm if the deal was indeed exclusive. Will this news cause bad blood with Swifties in our neighbouring countries? Elsewhere, the fallout over football star Messi’s no-show on the pitch in Hong Kong continues. Most recently, a pair of friendly matches in China featuring Argentina’s football team were cancelled, and Messi had to post another video on Weibo explaining his absence. Will this messy issue ever be resolved?

    #494 - Budget 2024: What the Media Missed Feat. Reggie From The Financial Coconut

    For the first “instalment” of the Forward SG social compact, DPM Lawrence Wong delivered Budget 2024, which leaned in on preparing workers for uncertain times ahead, and providing relief for those affected by ongoing retrenchments. In what’s becoming an annual tradition, we invited Reggie, boss of personal finance network The Financial Coconut (TFC) into our studio to help us read the tea leaves about the budget, and what the mainstream media missed.

    #493 - Leong Mun Wai issued POFMA & PUB Calls Out Sterra for “Misleading” Ad

    This past week, NCMP and PSP leader Leong Mun Wai was issued a POFMA for publishing false information about an elderly West Coast couple who were allegedly facing financial difficulties. Was there any merit to this POFMA? Elsewhere, PUB called out water purifier firm Sterra for its “misleading” advertisements that made dubious claims about the cleanliness of Singapore tap water. Was this a POFMA-able event?

    #492 - Police Investigate Events Related to Israel-Hamas War & Ubisoft Video Game Features Singapore Accent

    The police announced that they are looking into 2 events related to the Israel-Hamas war that took place in Singapore over the last couple of weeks, including a march to deliver letters to the Istana. In light of how the rest of the world is reacting to the Middle East conflict, were these events really out of line? Elsewhere, Singaporean actress Caitanya Tan is starring in the new Ubisoft video game, Skull and Bones, but rather than celebrating the fact, people have pounced on her character’s Singapore accent instead. Why the hate for Singlish?

    #491 - Parliament Debates on Singapore’s Reserves & Mr Coconut Shows Receipts in Employee Dispute

    #491 - Parliament Debates on Singapore’s Reserves & Mr Coconut Shows Receipts in Employee Dispute

    This week, PM Lee and members of the Opposition were engaged in a marathon debate about Singapore’s reserves, with PSP putting forward a motion to use more of the national reserves for the needs of the current generation of Singaporeans. Who made the better points in the debate? Elsewhere, Mr Coconut is currently caught in a bitter dispute with an ex-employee, who alleged on social media that she was unfairly terminated by the company due to her pregnancy. Mr Coconut then published the results of their internal investigations, which included CCTV footage of the employee watching TV on the job, as well as other details about her work performance. Who’s in the wrong here?

    #490 - Does Police Officer Suicide Deserve Inquiry & NTU is Now a Tourist Attraction?

    The 2023 suicide case of police officer Uvaraja Gopal and related discrimination allegations were addressed by Minister Shanmugam in Parliament this week, prompting a question by NCMP Leong Mun Wai about whether the case warranted a Committee of Inquiry. Does his point have any merit? Elsewhere, NTU announced that it will be imposing a fee on tourist groups coming to their campus in response to an influx of visitors in recent months. Will this really help to mitigate the issues of security, privacy and overcrowding?
