Derisory Insulting Tribute to the Merdeka generation

As a recognition of your lifetime contribution to the country, the PAP government now gives you a daily cup of coffee.

Clap, clap, clap.

Let’s see how big is this recognition and tribute.
Money: $6.1 billion
People: 500,000

Per person is $12,200.
Not bad, right? But, don’t forget this is meant to last until all the Merdeka generation die off. That will take another 25 yrs or so, on average.

$12,200 / 25 years: $488.
Per month: $40.
Per day: $1.30

That’s it: just $1.30 a day, just about one cup of tea or coffee at a hawker centre.

And this is assuming that all the money is spent. So far, we know that the government prefer to keep the fund high, and the spending super low.

This is NOT a recognition nor a tribute.
It’s derisory.
It’s insulting.
It’s VTO.

Think carefully and deeper when this is WHAT our future PeeM cum seatwarmer, Heng Heng Sweet Cake is dishing out to you! Should he be voted in to squat TEMPORARILY on the Imperial Throne or be SHOWN THE RUDE EXTENDED MIDDLE FINGER IN THE COMING GE?

    Maybe they welcome with Kopi package in form kopi vouchers to subsidise to keep the price affordable

    The Merdeka Generation don’t know how to count lah. They just look at the $6 billion waiting to be taken, so happy, like Toto!

    After the GE, Merdeka Generation will start to return whatever taken and more, through themselves and from their children and grandchildren.

    I hope the Merdeka Generation is smarter than the Pioneer Generation, like Malaysia voters were smarter than Singapore voters. The Malaysian voted out the Official Numbor Satu even after received money for their votes.

    To the rich and wealthy MG group, they can’t even use this money to buy a packet of treats for their dogs. To the poor, however, they sincerely appreciate PAP for their kindness and consideration. We can pitty the naive poor folks who contributed to ruin Singapore in 2015, but it’s just that we can’t teach a stubborn old puppy not to be loyal to its bad masters.

    The Merdeka Generation of true blue Singaporeans not only contributed to the defence of our nation(all able men of the MG were enlisted for NS then) but also help built a strong economic foundation for our young nation during the uncertain period of the 60′s and 70′s.As one of the MG ,I am delighted to finally see some form of recognition and tribute coming out from the present 4G leaders to honor the existence of the MG.Most of the MG are now retired and living on whatever minute savings they have in their CPF which are grossly inadequate to help sustain a decent standard of living in ‘ high cost ‘ Singapore, they call “HOME”.Most of these MG need assistance of a truely monetary kind far beyond the various medisave top ups which they can only use when they fall sick(Touch wood!!).
    Those in the corridor of power in the present Government should honor the MG by giving a monthly payout of S$500/= to boost the ‘living standards’ of those retired MGs who might have fallen into the “trap of no return”.

  • Harder Truths:

    The ‘Merdeka’ generation is already between 60 – 69.
    They will always vote pappies no matter what.
    This is what they deserve for their loyalty.
    I have no sympathy for pappy lovers.

  • Lim Tean to Announce Better:

    Your Maths fall into their tricks and is Wholly Wrong.

    Don’t even be fooled by the 8 billion figure. You all must know that its just a “FUND”, example actual usage projected about 1B but “FUND” can be allocated to “8 B” just to self-aggrandize the image of “PAPi” as Election is at the corner. It is just like the shameful jack-up and discount on Polyclinic consultation fees as before. The worker’s party should insist on getting the breakdown and the methods in the allocation.

    Is more like a “SICK & DIE” DISCOUNT VOUCHERS, and many “MERDEKAN” will not come to enjoy it, other than the One-Time silver card top up. Maybe they projected 10 thousands times you see the doctors or the dentist or projected you live up to 120 years to jack-up the 8B funds?

    Lim Tean should announce better. Double those of PAPi. Anyway Win first, talk later.

    Abolish GST will be ten thousands times better than the above silly tricks.

  • National Unity to VTO:

    How to respect when they jack-up and discount to lure and bluff the weak, old and needy?

    Anyway, they “Sure Win” with those “Ah Thiong”, “Maidna” and “Mangala” influx to sure vote for them and displace and replace Sinkies of their jobs and lunch boxes.

    How to respect when they can’t even safeguard the interests of Sinkies?
    They are just the “Bloody” insincere lots with their bags of tricks.

    If Sinkies don’t “NATIONAL UNITY”, your “Children” will suffer in “PAIN”.

  • James Lee:

    If the 4G leaders are serious about according due recognition and tribute to the cohort of PG and MG ,those in the corridor of power should without further delay implement the following:-
    1)Unconditionally provide free basic hospitalization and health care benefits to both cohort of PG and MG .This will give all these seniors true “peace of mind” as they journey through the next 15 to 20 years of their remaining life.

    2)Because of 1) above , the moneys in the medisave accounts of the PGs and MGs can be withdrawn to meet their retirement needs.The govt.can safe on subsidies or top ups.

    3)Unconditionally wave the current fee of $80/= which they need to pay for the Singapore Passport.

    4)Help boost their standard of living by giving all PG and MG a monthly cash payment of S$300/=

    Do the needful before it’s too late!!!
