High cost of living not due to war but greedy policies

PM Lee being the world highest paid politician has nothing better to say than to inform Singaporeans we are heading towards a recession in next 2 years. We would expect him and his team to tell Singaporeans not just to forecast doom but also tell us how he and his team being paid astronomically have strategies to mitigate recession. Does it mean we are paying top dollar for mediocre leadership?

Every year, everything goes up, we are always given reasons or excuses for them. This year, prices already adjusted before the Ukraine war and then the war came and prices went further. They conveniently pushed the blame to war. A lot of sheep keep repeating the SOP answer, especially die hards or people with low IQ. Let us look at some of the direct or indirect cost components:-

1. Rental – This goes up every year, even during the pandemic, the govt wasn’t reducing it to help businesses. In the end, many small medium enterprises chose to exit.

2. Petrol – Our price is highest in the world, higher than Europe, North America, Japan and our neighbours.

3. COE – Reaching almost $100,000.

4. ERP – Rates are re-climbing as usual.

5. Utility – Also we are amongst highest in the world for water, electricity and gas.

For those sheep or dumb, your goods need to be transported by lorries, cars and vans, they don’t fly into the stall or warehouse. For all businesses, they need to pay rent and utility, these high costs add to the burden that they need to include into the cost of sales. Remember, the govt is the largest landlords in Singapore, from HDB to Reits. And other landlords learn their greed of play.

Now in order to deter Singaporeans to go into Malaysian to buy cheap goods, they have further reduced the GST relief. I suggest they ban people from buying anything and force all Singaporeans to buy the overly expensive priced locally.

So don’t be naive that cost of living is due to external factors, it is due to these components largely implemented by a very greedy govt. And all they will do is to issue some vouchers like panadol treatment to ease your pain for few days and you will be happy to accept further hikes. Malaysian eggs selling at $4 and the same eggs imported into Singapore, at one time almost close to $8, now near $7. You tell me, the extra $3 is due to war? So when Pinky said he is going to help with cost of living or inflation? Tell me, which of the 5 items that are directly under his team’s control he is going to help? You really so naive to think he is going to help???

Remember Pinky said you voted me because you support my policies. So if you have voted for him, you supported all these policies and higher and higher cost of living. Don’t complain and expect change, this is what you have voted for.

  • Who are the Political Idiots:

    Social ILLS BLAMES by politicians is ALWAYS INVARIABLY, INEXPLICABLY ATTRIBUTED to forces beyond human control – at least this is the PAP admission. Then what are humans for? Then why politicians are here and what are they for?

    In SG most if not all PAP slaves said they give back to the systems when elected since they benefitted from the systems.

    NO Wonder, my God (tolong). THE PAP circus and CLOWNS never never end because the SYSTEM PERPETUATED by all their new members who give back (to continue) THEIR PAP systems. Now I know why there is a continuity of PAP systems.

  • MarBowling:

    Dishing out so-called huge amount of HELP for SinKaporean folks and businesses under the Relief Package for covid19 and ALSO the massive LOSS by Tombmasek Holdings, previously under the armpit but NOW under the thumb of his Wifey Holee Jinx, have caused a BIG $HIT-HOLE that Is NEEDED to be FILLED UP AT ALL COSTS, PERIOD!

    Only by RAISING THE PRICES OF FUEL, COE, BTO FLATS, ETC AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST GST, CAN MAI HUM AND GANG ABLE TO COVER UP THE SMELLY AND FILTHY SHIT-HOLE PARTLY DUG DEEP DEEP BY HIS WIFEY HOLEE JINX! A huge portion of the SHITS CREATED is the HUGE AND HEAVY commitment by Holee Jinx in investing in pharmaceutical company Pfizer where $billions of taxpayers hard earned money are used to purchase millions doses of the Holee mRNA vaccines(only 6 months shelf life and costing $billions)to achieve a 90% vaccination rate for SinKaporean!

    EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE LOOSENED UP OF MOST OF THE RESTRICTIONS AND MEASURES WRT TO COVID19, Expect the Holee National VACCINATION Program to be a ongoing thingy until the Holee COW comes home, as the Husband(Mai Hum)and Wifey(Holee Jinx)Tag Team are HEAVILY INVOLVED AND COMMITTED TO EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN WRT TO PFIZER! Next year, the Pfizer Regional Centre and MRNA vaccines manufacturing plant in SinKapore will be in OPERATION to ensure that MOST SinKaporean will have their REGULAR 6-MONTHLY OR ANNUAL BOOSTER JAB! HEAVEN HAS EYES. MAN PROPOSES GOD DISPOSES!

  • NotMyProblem:

    Well said.

    Intelligence has its limit, but not stupidity! When intelligence reaches its limit, stupidity starts! AND, there is no cure for stupidity!

    Yes our PM forecasted doom day for SG, but did he give any strategies to mitigate it!!!???

    He said SG will be $8 billion poorer. Is he going to cut salary of ministers’ including his own? Is he going to remove the 5 mayors, senior ministers, second ministers and those useless Ministers in the PM office? This could save SG at least $1 billion!

    NDP and F1 race will be coming, how much unnecessary fuel will be burned for these events? How much taxpayers paying for these? These are the vanity events for PAP and the elites! I don’t even want to talk about CO2 emission!

    Well, Singaporeans (I mean true Singaporeans), you still want to vote for this?

  • The world is dying from greed:

    The chief clown dared to tell us SG’s economy will get poorer by $8b each year..
    So why dont he and his band of court jesters donate half or qtr of their humongous salaries to offset part of the losses?
    Always squeezing more and more blood out if already suffering sgcitizens.
    Totally shameless…do we still need such unfeeling people in gov?

    sheep may think that the shepherds are their great saviors from the hungry wolves – not knowing that the shepherds are worst than the wolves FINALLY leading them “wholesale” to the slaughter house ????

    wolves are ‘honestly’ upfront while the shepherds are ‘deceptively’ cunning ??

  • PAP the Price Gouger:

    Recently certain PAP BIG GUNS RUSHED out with their BLAZING guns FIRING that they will DIVERSIFY SG food sources and monitor prices TO ENSURE ENOUGH supplies.

    No doubt, ensure sufficient supplies, diversify is WHAT a NORMAL Administration must DO (NO NEED TO publish or announce this as NEWS) BUT WITHOUT ENSURING stable OR LOW prices OR status quo prices before war, THIS IS THE BIGGEST LIE.

    Look here critically, the PAP Administration said ONLY, to ensure enough of supplies BUT NOT ensure NO price increases.

    NO PRICE INCREASES can be achieved in case one reasonably said cannot be done -
    1. PAP Millionaire CAN CHOOSE to REDUCE salaries if THEY BELIEVE IN EQUAL MISERY if they profess to love SG, like as mentioned IN THE SCHOOL PLEDGE.
    2. SG has HUGE amounts of reserves for Temasek to use to GAMBLE. Apportion some for food subsidies – why NOT.

    If now are NOT RAINY DAYS, then when are?

  • ah seng:

    HDB BTOs, Medisave all kind of schemes all by govt to deplete our savings and retirements.

    All these indirect and direct costs are inflated by them to maximise profit and revenue.

    SP belongs to who?
    NTUC belongs to who?
    Kopitiam belongs to who?
    SingTel/StarHub/M1 belong to who?

    The hypocrisy is when Pinky tells you he is going to help you… when he is the guy driving all these costs sky.

    No wonder Mr Lee Hsien Yang said it right that the current Party Against People has lost its way ! The emperor and his eunuchs know how to pay themselves richly and living a good life away from poor communities. So, what talents do they possessed to solve the high costs of living affecting middle and low income families ? So, the speech is hollow. Giving a long winded speech just for an occasion has become a formality !

    Long before Putin’s “special operations” in Ukraine or China’s “Wuhan” experiments, … Sg has regularly dominated the “most expensive city in the world” rankings/standings !!!

    C’mon, … paying nearly 100k to be deemed “entitled/eligibled” to buy a car, … must already ring/trigger alarm bells in the most basic of simple minds, surely !!!

    Anyways, … I’m certain the nation’s favourite politicians will leave no wallets un-emptied, no opportunity not taken full advantage of, … whilst ensuring their own wallets and opportunities are “pah pah” !!!

    The writer is too timid and lame.

    Greedy policies DO NOT MAGICALLY came about OUT OF THIN AIR – even the extreme experienced DAVID COPPERFIELD cannot conjure up there would be a Russia attacking Ukraine that he can predict BY ALL HIS KINETIC powers.

    Greedy policies ARE THOUGHT out by GREEDY BRAINS WHOSE UPBRINGING were by equally GREEDY PARENTS and GRAND PARENTS.

  • institutions can mandate:

    high rent seeking and so the higher base rent seeking cost got past down and locked in to be recovered + profit margin (for businesses ??) and higher salary demand (for average employees ???) + ad infinitum (goes on and on ???) with the accumulative effect ???

    As for the average daft sinkies on low wage without minimum wage hor, how leh ??

    while the white monkey linked-here-and-there institutions can mandate minimum service charge for this and that (to recover their own costs ?? plus making profit ???), the average daft sinkies (on low wage or no wage due to unemployment ?) cannot demand min welfare $$$$ assistance hor ???

    Let me add they KNOW ONLY HOW to reward themselves the schemes of which is so complex to calculate NO ONE MATHEMATICAL genius KNOW what’s the complicated FORMULA.

    Besides, I m reminded 2 tgs -

    One, the poor is NOT EXPECTED to eat in RESTAURANTS FORBIDDEN by PAP Administration.

    Two. The PAP MAINTAINED STEADFASTLY to RELAX to tax CURRENT GENERATION in order NOT to burden next generations.

    THEY PRESUMABLY ARE LYING CONTINUOUSLY to FRIGHTEN U and me because MERELY KEEP SAYING and SAYING with no statistics and proofs is TANTAMOUNT to scare and lies.

    Whose job$ did they save?
