Don’t ministers get paid millions so that they get things right?

Isn’t that the argument the PAP used when they said ministers had to be paid like CEOs?

I tot these tots when I read

Tough to get ‘balance right’ when pricing HDB flats: Lawrence Wong 

(Headline from constructive nation-building media)

Looks like Ah Wong wants to get millions for doing bugger all.

And cybernuts want ministers from non elite schools? Lawrence Wong attended non elite schools.

Still he talk cock, sing song king, like ministers from elite schools.

  • if they are CEO material:

    white monkey idiots should work in the private sector as a CEO if they are really CEO material in a ‘competitive market’ and get taxed accordingly like a CEO.

    not go into public sector and make country like a company and charge services (captive or created monopolised services) via direct or indirect tax or inflated price; and hence resulting in high costs for the country – with consequences that the competitiveness of the country being affected.

  • Opposition dude:

    No no no you have got it all sala. Ministers need that obscene pay simply so that they don’t fall too far behind the private sector. That is the main gist of their simplistic thinking.

    But we all know it ends right there though. In the private sector you do something wrong like Nissan’s chairman you get removed FAST. Compare this to ministers who can’t manage their own ministries properly like SAF and MOH and you can see very clearly that the pay is very important but nothing else is.

    No need for accountability since all these ministers are beyond perfect and anything bad that happens is never, ever their fault.

  • Regime change is the solution:

    Yes they do get paid big money to get things right. And they should also be promptly sacked if they do not if there is REAL accountability.

    Lawrence Wong got something right when he said that HDB flats will be worth ZERO at the end of the 99-year lease.

  • Tough right balance???:

    Lawrence must first persuade Chok Tong it isn’t a seductive lie when democratically aspiring societies demand “checks and balances” in governmental protocols. After all, the man who lives like the Swiss in Singapore is still raking it in like a windfall in winter isn’t it?

  • Balance what?:

    HDB flats are supposed to be “affordable and subsidized”. What is there to “balance”? SLA makes a “killing” on HDB flats. It sells land to HDB at market prices which cost it nothing (i.e., zero). Just what the value of the flats will be at the end of the 99-year lease.

  • not some simple ter-bak scale,:

    //Tough to get ‘balance right’ when pricing//

    of course, tough lar. ministars right, all talented & long vision minded (as in long term horizon) leh ?

    when you tilt the scale too much (too much heavy) on one side, of course it is now difficult to tilt it back lar.

    and this is not some simple ter-bak scale, this “scale” is going to shift the whole social-economic balance which include retirement funds, salary demand, decisions to give more / no births or not, cost of living, etc, etc, etc, etc …… ???
