Mayor

If Ms Low Yen Ling does not receive a salary as Mayor from the People’s Association, it will prove that this post is just a wall flower post. All the real works are done by the thousands of unpaid volunteers.

And if she, while being a Minister of State for two important ministries – Trade and Industry and Ministry of Culture can do the job of a Mayor for free, why cannot the other four Mayors who do not hold any other posts and are paid the handsome salary of $16,000 a month as MP already take on the post for free?

Should the People’s Association abolish the position of Mayor and do away with the CDCs. Revert to the real objectives of the People’s Association clearly stated in the Act. The distribution of money for Skills Futures, Programmes to retrain workers etc should revert to the normal ministries. Ministers are paid millions. Why should the CDCs take upon themselves to do their work?

  • The Effing PAP:

    The effing PAP Administration is very much truly running an unproductive political administration in SG
    – chief of which, reliance on foreigners for every strata of life in SG, from cleaners to bankers, the whole spectrum;
    the perennial slide in labour productivity; the unmanageable arrest of population decline of births;
    the wasteful throwing away of people’s taxes, the mother of all waste, $20 million of Singaporeans money to pour tea.

    The mayor post isn’t the only one that should be done away with, what exactly does a “minister in the minister’s office” position do I would dearly love to know. Pour tea, arrange flowers and buy stationery only perhaps?

    But the most expensive not needed role is definitely the president. Why do we need one is beyond me since the president can’t make any meaningful decisions for citizens and is only tasked with supposedly keeping guard of our reserves. It has been mentioned lots of times that the president is nothing but a puppet and this is true. Why can’t the finance minister be tasked with looking after the reserves instead?

    Whatever it is PAP’s numbers in parliament must be reduced substantially. They cannot be allowed to make all sorts of nonsense decisions which only result in life being made harder for citizens. The less of PAP in parliament, the better.

    The simple fact to understand is the PAP Administration amplify the ‘difficulty’ of theirs to run SG, and therefore creates in people’s and observers minds, by putting in place a big cohort of law makers in Parliament to reflect their difficult political job.

    Easy to sell to SGpns its not easy to get talents that’s why talents are expensive – and therefore PAP has to be expensive, good things don’t come cheap, this is PAP template for sheeps.

    Maybe you should be “EFFing” Sinkies more so than the PAPies. LOL.

    Isn’t it that SSS Sinkies clearly SHOW everyone that PAPies are GOOD for them every 5 years in the “general eRection” results? LOL.

    It is the majority of Sinkies with SSS, who still worship their false “LEEligion”; so you should really “EFF” those Sinkies, the way I often do here in this forum. yes?/no? LOL.

    Sinkies are the ROOT problem, NOT PAPies.
    Yes, PAPies deserve to be “EFFed” too, but they are the symptoms only.

    If only Sinkies grow a Spine & some hairy Balls, do you think PAPies will dare to go so far that they have gone to by now? LOL.

    The only problem with this silly theory of PAP’s is that they have nothing to show for it. If it’s “difficult” then it means they aren’t up to the job and so, in theory, should not be paid so much since they are already inept. And while I do agree that good things do not come cheap I also believe in good things being of good quality as well, neither of which the current PAP monkeys have shown any of.

  • Sinchiapor the Incorporated:

    The Emperor Dowager and its eunuchs (what’s its female equivalent?) must perpetuate Sinchiapor Incorporated for the Ahgong cult and clan …. it’s bloody lucrative to say the least! Six new mayors at $600,000 per head to do the groundwork that duly elected people’s representatives a.k.a. MPs are supposed to do…. because the Pappy MPs are just too preoccupied with their GLC appointments and business responsibilities – ie. with “undisclosable remunerations”- to busy to attend to the sheeples’ rights and community administration.

    Like the (not) very very mediocre GohCT likes to preach to us all: “We will ownself cheque ownself”!

    Really, there are none so blind as tho$e who will not see…..

    IF it is true that she is NOT receiving $600,000 for being a Meyer, then the post be thrown openly to ALL qualified citizens who need or like this job. Is one of the requirements or qualifications for Meyer must be an MP ? If that is true again, then can the opposition MP apply for the post of Meyer? Or is the qualification is u must be a MIW (Monkey In White)? If that is so again, nothing to say anymore ! Then, citizens must ask themselves, where do the big money come from to pay the 5 Meyers ?

  • NotMyProblem:

    It doesn’t matter if mayors in Singapore are paid or not, the question is do we need them? Just like do drivers in Singapore need the fog lights on our cars? The fog lights are added cost to the cars! And saleman would tell you the fog lights comes free!

    Singapore with a population of 5.3 million, with over 80 MPs, isn’t that enough to run the country?!

    Even if our mayors work for free, taxpayers still need to pay for the office and the staff and other resources! We need to stop wasting money for NOTHING!!

    Not only mayors but also those minister grade in the PMO must be scraped!

    Just ask, if PAP paying for it, do the PAP wants them?

  • Lesson for UK:

    Many ministers resigned recently, in UK.
    Open reason: not happy with PM.
    Real reason: money not enough. If their pay were millions, their spouses, children and in-laws will be pleading with them not to resign.

    Singapore has the most stable system, carefully buttressed with gold, silver and diamond.

    Response: Great and insightful comments. In SinKapore, even though it’s BLACKER THAN BLACK but when the LEEder says it’s WHITE, ALL HIS PAPIGS MINISTERS AND MPS WILL AGREE WITH HIM THAT IT’S INDEED WHITER THAN WHITE!

    GIVEN THE HUMONGOUS AND OBSCENE WORLD HIGHEST SALARIES ALL THESE JLB, USELESS LJ CB BUGGERS HAVE RECEIVED, ONLY FOOLS WOULD DISAGREE WITH ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THE LEEDER SAYS OR DOES, PERIOD!
