Shocking that PAP Ministers would pay themselves 4.1 months of performance bonuses with their sub-par performance

I believe that many Singaporeans must be aghast to learn that their useless PAP ministers paid themselves an average of 4.1 months of performance bonus in 2017. This has been ongoing for the last couple of years.

The true meaning of “performance bonus” has been dragged through the mud and put to great shame by this PAP government. Let us recap and do some fact checking.

Over the past 4 to 5 years, our MRT encountered a whole host of incidents and problems. A fatal accident happened at the Pasir Ris station, a train collision happened at Joo Koon station, tunnel flooding took place as a result of service records being doctored, and train disruptions happened again and again affecting hundreds of thousands of commuters.

New leasehold public flats were sold to Singaporeans at exorbitant prices resulting in them shouldering heavy housing burdens over many years. In turn, this leads to an exhaustion of their CPF retirement savings. The failure to return our CPF savings on our 55th birthdays are both blatant and brazen.

Our Total Fertility Rates and Singapore football international standing dived to an all-time low.

We have an underclass known as the “graduate poor” which is to have taken root with the PAP’s liberal immigration policies. The haves and have-not wage gaps widen with more pitiful senior citizens seen nowadays ‘exercising’ by collecting cans from rubbish bins and clearing plates and cutlery, cleaning tables at hawker centres.

Citizens work long hours in the World’s most expensive city and struggle to meet the costs of living while hundreds of millions of our collective hard-earned tax monies are spent on foreign students who have ran away. Billions of our reserves were lost by the PAP government in the overseas forays in banks such as Bank of America, Credit Suisse, a taxi company in Vietnam, etc. without any proper accountability to parliament.

Over at the Ministry of Health, the worse breaches have taken place.

Personal and medical records of 1.5 million patients were illegally accessed and stolen. Yet the PAP government resorted to playing the incident down. Lax infection controls over at the Singapore General Hospital that resulted in 8 patients dead with 25 more further affected. Severe shortages of hospital beds and contaminated milk powder fed to warded babies.

And the PAP government ministers paid themselves over 4 month of Performance Bonuses each year over the last few years?

My fellow Singaporeans, you have been sucked so much and you are so pitiful! The late Lee Kuan Yew was spot on when he described Singaporeans as daft – and I might add – very pitiful. A nation of sheep will eventually beget a government of wolves.

The Chinese would have aptly described the current PAP government’s decision of paying themselves their own performance bonuses in nine simple Chinese characters – 大家拿,敢敢拿,等什么*?

    Please lah, 4 months is nothing. Our ministers have heavy responsiblities, even more than they would have if they remain in private sector. And yet they are taking pay cut to be in public sector. So they need to be compensated with higher bonus if possible. Don’t forget, top Goldman Sachs traders get 36 to 48 months bonus. These people don’t have the same responsibility as our ministers, and they are not doing anything of value also except create financial crisis. So 4 months bonus is minuscule for ministers who have made Singapore one of the best places in the world to live with our superior education system, high quality public health care, transport and public housing. Paying our ministers 12 to 18 months bonus seems more appropriate.

    Thanks to WP’s Leon for asking the question on ministerial bonuses! The economy for the past few years were not brilliant at all and Lon top of that there were so many serious issues , among them MRT breakdowns, hep C deaths, unemployment problems, AGO reported lapses in most ministries, the SingHealth data hacks, low GDP figures……… How come almost every year theministers receive so high bonuses more than 5 months if 13th month payout included! Yet Woody Goh said that ministers are underpaid how bizarre? Most regret that WP MPs did not follow up by asking PM Lee to explain how the high bonuses were derived almost the same for the past few years when there were so many sagas, poor economy ………. What is his explanations?
    What about our ELECTED president, how much did she get for performance bonus?

    What Simon Lim says isn’t even shocking because people just don’t care. It’s the mentality lah bodoh!

    It’s not as if we have not heard of ministers getting year end bonuses before, it has been around for years. And as long as the kiasees continue voting for PAP whatever the problems we are having it will continue to be this way.

    As others have said repeatedly, you want to change things you have to vote for it. No way in hell PAP would change to make things better. And why would they do so since they have the super majority in parliament? You reduce their numbers significantly and send them a clear signal then they will be forced to change.

    How much does our next-door neighbour Mahatir get a month?I don’t know,but I think his salary is way less than LHL’s.He and his ministers are also cutting their salaries now.Compare Dr.M’s pay with our PM’s pay.And what do the PMs,presidents,of other similarly- advanced countries like Singapore get?Some may argue that Mahatir and the rest cannot compare with LHL,or LKY because they are not as capable,diligent,intelligent,dedicated as the two Lees.How true is that?
    If one can compare the pays of doctors,engineers,acountants etc in equally advanced countries,one can do the same with their politicians.The conclusion is our politicians are paid well above their counterparts in similar economies.I am not comparing advanced and backward economies,but those with similar states of economic development as Singapore.Even in countries that are deemed more developed than ours,do their political leaders get the kind of pay that LHL and his workmates get?
    In the national day rally speech,LHL spoke emotionally about an ex-samsui woman who had eked out a hard life.He seemed to empathise with her.But to truly feel for the lowest-income in our midst today,what our leaders should do is to set the leaders’ example by drastically reducing their salaries.That is then concrete,leader-like action,not just emotional words purporting to feel for the lowest-income.

    How can 4 months be nothing, when 0.1 month is already something, in the 5 digit range.

    To them, 4 months is nothing. All these mediocre people needs to be educated and constantly reminded that our Ministers are not paid enough. If we do not pay Minsters enough, people like them will become Ministers. Mediocre people who cannot earn $1 million outside.

    This is the ‘arse about face’ kind of thinking that shows an ignorance of how the world actually works.

    If ministers ‘leave their jobs’ of course they will be actively solicited by these companies. The reason is not because they are necessarily any good, but because they can develop inside understanding and can ‘oil’ access to important advantages through the ministers connections. They may get paid big bucks, not because of how good they are but becauseif who they know. This happens all over the world.

    The real point is, before they held office, who will pay them the million dollar salaries. Nobody, I would venture.

    Treasury is their honey pot. So why not dip into it every now and then. It is called “bonus” but could be called anything you like. It has got nothing to do with performance–that is just an excuse used to pay themselves more.

    Also the Clown’s wife Ho Jinx is getting into politics gradually. She is supposed to be a public servant but not acting like one. I think she is preparing the ground for her son to be the Regent should the father be deposed or incapacitated before the son is ready.

    Singapore is their private estate with the courtiers dancing around them. So maybe the likes of Edwin Tong will get a big bonus end of the year to supplement his wages so that he can support his family.

    In the case of Singapore, power does not come from the barrel of a gun but from the ATM in the Clown’s office.

    So time to wake up as there is a long struggle ahead for Singapore. Neighbours should walk each floor and talk to each unit about the future of the country.

Whenever there is a change of the Minister, the incoming Minister will start by increasing taxes to show his ‘performance’. This is what Masagos Zulkifli did the moment he was promoted to MOE.

  • Feel ashame? No?:

    Wonder whether PM Lee and his millionaire ministers feel any shame that they pay themselves millions $ and huge bonuses out of their citizens taxes while the ordinary people suffer from unemployment, wage stagnation retrenchments and stiff foreigner competition? I just read from Google postings that the taiwanese people are asking why LHL is paid or rather paid himself 7x more than their president Tsai when thier country’s GDP is doubled SG’s and Taiwa’s population is 4xthat of the little red dot? The mayor of London is paid about one fifth of LHL when the city is larger than SG and their GDP is higher? The PAP has the majority in parlaiment,even they want to pay themselves 10 millions each minister what can Sinkies do? The PaP always lambasted critics that they have the voters support to implement policies they seen fit, so too, 70% have supported their huge sky high salaries so ?
    The performance bonus of more than 4 months is nothing,there are other bonuses such as 13th month, national bonus GdP bonus……. And Google reported that their total bonuses on top of their basic salary can come up to 10 – 12 months! Is this not bizarre after all, the money comes from tax payers, no wonder they need to increase water, gas electricity, car park charges, GST I increases……………….. They got more than 4 months performance bonus for all the woes that citizens have to suffer- train breakdowns, unemployment, retrenchments, wage stagnation, water gas electricity charges increases, HeP C deaths, SingHealth data breaches, NS men deaths, HDB flats price depreciation, high cost of living run away health care csts, high suicide rates, low birth rates, low GDP figures every year, foreigner influx, AgO reported lapses in almost every ministry every year, commercial scams,and many many more……..
    I want to ask GCT again , are SG PM and ministers still underpaid, which private entity give out a year’s total salries ? Can our PM and ministers with their astronomical salries handle the jobs of Trump who paid himself $1/- or XJP, or Merkel, Abe, Macron, Modi Jokovic………..who are all paid very much less! Do our ministers don’t have a tinge of shame,paying themselves so high salaries so high salaries while the very people they claim that they are serving are struggling,trying to keep their noses above waterthrush the onslaught of high cost of everything …… And not knowing what will come next Inorder to sustain the ministers’ out of this world’ s salaries!

    if ministars are so good having private sector gene and mentality, they should stay in the private sector and earn as much as possible and get taxed progressively higher lar – and not join the garment service and pretend to serve the people and ‘bleed’ the system because of ‘need high income’ mentality – as this type of people will also need find ways to take care of their big fat payroll also. this is why in the private sector, the main motive is profit and they will only keep only the producers and not those who do not add value – the charitable & social element (which some lucky companies get to show off and preach about) is happily the by-product made only possible after the main profit is made lar.

  • High quality?...:

    I belong to the PG generation and grew up during the time when old guards GohKS, Lim Ks, Toh CH…… We’re running Sg? They are really worked for the good of SG and are paid pittance compared to the present crop of Sg ministers! Woody Goh claimed that sG ministers currently are all underpaid , isne telling us that the likes of Grace Fu, Chan CS ,Heng Swee Kiat… Are better than GKS, LKS..? Woody GOH himself which everybody I my generation knew that he was just a seat warmer for LHL, not bad earning millions for 14 long years doing nothing much while LKY is actually running the show for him!
    Look at the problems we have now, a string of them , yet they say that they are underpaid so claimed lau Goh! If China’s XiJP adopts the pegging of his salary to the top PRC earners he would probably paid hundreds of millions but would the citizens agree? What will happen to Xi? Obvious! It is only in SG that theministers were able to ram down policies even though unpopular! Citizens have protested on the high ministerial salries which they pay themselves, but what happens , no use!I blame the 70% of the state of affairs we are in now!

  • top hawkers selling nasi lemak:

    //Don’t forget, top Goldman Sachs traders get 36 to 48 months bonus//

    don’t forget top footballers may get lagi more. why not all our ministars start to play football lar.

    top traders getting 36 to 48 months bonus does not mean our all our higher white idiots are equivalent to them lar and can be top traders lar.

    top hawkers selling nasi lemak / fried hokkien mee may earn more than many average PMET. so does it mean that every professional must start to demand the equivalent pay and earning.

    our white idiots can do that and start telling stories simply because they are operating under a ownself-check-ownself system where 4 = 5 and selected = elected.

  • Evil Hypocrite Greedy Thieves:

    So previous salary cut is another wayang? Self declared bonuses effectively top up back the obscene salaries.

    PM Lee : “I formed a Committee in 2017 to review whether the salary framework….” = I asked my kakis to part of the committee to review me.

    Deputy PM Teo Chee Hean : “Committee had affirmed that the current salary structure for political office holders, including the National Bonus framework, remained sound.” = Your kakis you asked to form the committee to judge you replied “you are ok”

    Only in Singapore this is possible – ownself appoint own committee to judge ownself and agree ownself is perfect.

  • accommodate 3 to 4 millions:

    //Paying our ministers 12 to 18 months bonus seems more appropriate.//

    based on what ? gdp ? like taxing more and spend on grand projects to boost up gdp ? where scare land which can nicely accommodate 3 to 4 millions with good free space is artificially developed (taking out a lot of green) to accommodate 6.9m / 10m to increase gdp due to a lot of consumption (infrastructure, buildings, spending etc) resulting in squeezy congested space and little greenery (but replanted just to show green).

    after all the ‘gdp high is good’, do we get to see things here getting cheaper now – or getting more expensive where now assistance has to be given to assist the poor and jobs openings (job banks) exist now in order that daft sinkies are given priority (becos of discrimination) and bs training $$$ for sinkies ?

  • Say What You Like....:

    Singaporeans ‘got no balls’ to vote us out!

    We will continue to draw million$ and you will continue to toil willingly to enrich us!

    Don’t believe?

    Go ask the 69.9% who supported us and they will never stop supporting us!

    You can chide us everyday but ‘we simply can’t hear you!’

  • Are They Deserving?:

    Many voters will say NO!

    They are not performing but yet still got the cheeks to demand for more!

    Maybe they will announce a 10% pay cut before the GE to win votes and then a 20% pay increase after winning the Election?

    Will the 69.9% continue to be Mediocre?
