If 1G Ministers were resurrected from the dead, they would shake their head at the 4G leadership today

The older generation mainly the cabinet ministers are men of passion and giving their life to public services without much pay.

Now it totally different. Money is the talk of the day. Every ministry must make money except military and probably Education.

Even the health ministry try to cap their spending given a low Budget comparing to other countries. Nowadays when you admit to hospital minimum $3000 even after subsidiaries. Dun know how someone pay only $5 for an operation – maybe he is highly insured

All the ministers with exception of some, may not or experience no money to see a doctor or putting good on the table. Always said you have a helping hands from social welfare

All things becoming expensive resulted from increase in hawker centre rentals, high land cost, high utilities prices etc. With the subsidy of rent, a bowl of noodle dropped to $2.50 instead of $3.50 at hawker centre.

Why the poor has to pay for water levied. Dun we need water to survived? They should tax after a reason allocation and tax high if those who use above the allocation. The rich have the mean to fill many swimming pool and I just wonder why put a burden on the poor. Again the government said there are helps available but are not transparent .

Cannot understand why open market the electricity is 30% cheaper. Those reasoning are unacceptable.

If those past ministers were to be resurrected from the dead, they probably shake their head and go back to their grave

Where is the compassion for the people? Why keep increasing the reserve and use the surplus to invest in other countries with little or no return. Yet to see how much we have profited from the many overseas project like Suzhou, Tianjin etc

Hope they give a heart for the fellow citizen.

    Of the first G leaders, well comrade Ong Pang Boon is still around…the last of the Mohicans,…. should ask him for his views?
    Perhaps he would not want to comment for fear of being thumped down like Ngiam Tong Dow or he is comfortably tugged in his luxurious mansion and receiving his huge pensions plus other perks!

    Our PAP is super good at generating money from its citizens generation after generation. Chinese said “jiak buah liao”. The foreign SG citizens are here to support them all the way in order to keep their jobs, living in luxury landed property, freedom to travel abroad, take advantages by joining grassroots. Wow, such a wonderful and beautiful country to live in. This is my country now, Singapore. PAP should be no.1 in worldwide record to welcome all foreigners and offer them Pink IC generously.

    Ask yourself a simple question: how many of our current Ministers would have made it to the 1G Cabinet?

    The reason is the closets are too full, needed more people to guard them. In order for these people not to peep or say anything about what’s in the closets, they are paid in Million $$.

    There is also an Indian masquerading as a Malay-President whose job is to guard the reserve also pretends nothing has happened. She also earning a Milion$$.

    “What the oppositions can do?”, you asked. Well, we can open up the closet, save the millions $$ on so many MPs and ministers, reduce our daily burdens, get back our jobs from FTs, and many others!!

    Certainly it could not be any worse than now. Think for your future generation. I am a PG, my wish is for future generation to be better then what my generation have had, not worse!! Just one example, I paid up my HDB in 5 years, with 10 times lesser salary, can this generation to that?

  • a PG:

    Today’s ministars including their emperor are money comes first, not their hearts. Even Woody says their salaries are mediocre, and one female ministar complained of pay cuts that may affect her family life. So, you have it, SG white elites earning $$$millions (highest paid politicians in the universe) of taxpayers money, and still “money no enough. Can someone expand from here. Sigh !!

    This low productivity in clown pap cabinet is overshadowed by the excessive number of civil serpents in government.

    Can perform, never mind.

    But WTF. Everything wait long long. Book any medical appointment, the minimum wait is a ffffing minimum 6 months or more.

    Yet look at history. Look at published news in clown pap states times. Since when did clown pap say about aging population? Yet 20+ years have passed and yet clown pap is still talking about aging population, with the only change in waiting times from below 6 months then to above 6 months now.

    Vote into power a better group of Singaporeans. Then everything is cheaper yet everything moves faster. There is no other way. clown pap is rotting with the S$m they are paying each other.

    I loathe to hear the gahment repeating “You can use your medisave to pay for this and that”. Isn’t medisave one’s money? Don’t trivialise it.
