She rejected a pay rise

New Zealand’s prime minister is paid less than a Singapore parliamentary secretary.

She receives S$430,000 while Singapore Sr parliamentary secretary receives S$572,000.

  • Not the full picture:

    SGD430,000 is good enough to buy a very decent landed house in New Zealand.

    The same amount is not enough for a five-room HDB flat in down town Singapore!

    Applause. I love NZ and plans to buy farms there. Food is always needed by the world.

    My daughter is Australian now and Aussies can own farms, properties and businesses in NZ just like a New Zealander.

    I will visit NZ and see for myself.

  • PAP is fair and balanced:

    In Singapore, the top entrenched politicians compete globally (salary-wise) and far exceeds everybody many times. The bottom workers compete globally with the lowest and they are far above the lowest, also many times.

    Fair and balanced. 61% should be 91%.

    ******
    C’mon, they deserve every penny of their salaries, …… especially when they’ve been able to con-vince an entire nation that inside is not within, that islanders must pay land costs on leases, that public housing is “truly affordable”, the need for a president, mayors, second ministers, the peoples assc, the “benefits” of coe’s, …… conflicts of interest, cronyism and nepotism are words from a bygone age and, and, and the innumerable spin and shit that dominates the islands political landscape, … which is that that makes sg so so unique and says a ton, about the savviness of the electorate that “enabled” this !!!

    Bravo !!!

    Better if we merge with NZ. If companies can merge, why not Sg Inc?

    Can pay the jlb a $1 billion bye bye sum. It’s still cheaper than wasting $100 billion for nothing.

    We can export our top political talents to the world. Every one of them is more talented than any PM or President in the world, moneywise.

    With their super talents they can make every country as rich as Singapore by introducing the Singapore formula of building HDB flats and collecting GST. Also importing cheap foreign talents from the third world to create jobs for their citizens.

    Every country would be very happy to have our politicians as their heads of government and make them all like Singapore, and pay them like Singapore.

    Its not that EA’s pay is low.
    It is decent sum for public servants.
    The point is ours are OVER-PAYING them$elve$!

    She is rejecting a pay rise which means the sum she receives is reasonable.
    Our ministers think they are way underpaid compared to PRIVATE SECTOR CEOs.
    I wonder why they insist then on HOLDING TO THEIR PO$ITIONS?
    Maybe,they shud use their *talents* to start start n run NEW BUSINESSES so that they can create jobs for sgs?

    Certainly this is THE REAL PEANUTS tt someone’s prostitute spoke about (TT DURAI) – Liz Ardern’s salary is truly peanuts, RELATIVE to her job of governing NZ.

    Compared with governing SG of ONLY 3 Million IMPORTED TRASH (locals ARE mere DIGITS, described as lazy, no spurs, choosy if jobs) – hats off to this sweet lady PM of NZ.

    3) She always comes out to address the nation during the ups and downs of the covid situation; Loong just MIA, pops his head only during elections and on mandatory must-show-face events (new years, May day, when there is good news, etc).
    4) Her face like angel compared with HC…..
    5) She rejected pay rise; our monkeys keep saying their million$ pay still not enough.
    6) She got to where she is now through own efforts and competency; Loong got to where he is becos of Free Riding on daddy.
    7) She knows Cotton doesn’t come from Sheep. (of course she has advantage of having sheep where she comes from.)

  • Harder Truths:

    The problems in $inkieland are self-inflicted. Voters here love to elect ‘scholars’ who will look down on them and torture them. Then complain they are being tortured.

    These ‘scholars’ can tell the voters to kill themselves, and the voters will line up to do so, and call those who won’t as being unpatriotic and a hazard.

    Did the ‘scholars’ wake up one day and just walk into Parleement? And get all that money for no reason? They were the Chosen Few. They were erected. Democratically. Knowing that this would happen.

    Why talk about things that voters are okay with and voted for? Why talk about jabs when everyone wanted to take eagerly? Let’s move on to the next crisis.

    How to compare NZ leaders and SG clowns???

    Well let’s see;

    1) She doesn’t call NZ voters Free Riders, unlike our Dishonorable Son;

    Compare: SG not only Free Riders but also called criminals, Xie Shui by ministers and PAP’s ministers are “flow rider”.

    2) She demoted one of her ministers when he made a mistake; Loong simply allows No Blaming Culture, business as usual when his million$ clowns failed or screwed-up;

    Compare: Our Ministers were promoted to a ministry that cannot make mistake, even if she wanted to. That’s the less you do, the less mistake. When you do nothing, you make no mistake!

    3) She always comes out to address the nation during the ups and downs of the covid situation; Loong just MIA, pops his head only during elections and on mandatory must-show-face events (new years, May day, when there is good news, etc).

    Compare: That because how SG’s generals are made off. Come out only to claim victory when the war is over.

    4) Her face like angel compared with HC…..

    Compare: HC paid other to admire her ….

    5) She rejected pay rise; our monkeys keep saying their million$ pay still not enough.

    Compare: Our monkeys claimed they can earn more in private sectors, but none dares to work in the private sectors. When generals were put in government linked companies, they are only good at selling off the assets.

    6) She got to where she is now through own efforts and competency; Loong got to where he is becos of Free Riding on daddy.

    Compare: Without his daddy, he could only be teaching math in a JC.

    7) She knows Cotton doesn’t come from Sheep. (of course she has advantage of having sheep where she comes from.)

    Compare: But Singapore has sheep that produce cotton. I am sure New Zealand likes to have that also.

    You compare ulu with downtown?

    https://www.opespartners.co.nz/property-markets/wellington

    As at December 2021, the median house price in Wellington is $1,000,000. This is up from $392,500 from 11 years earlier. That means that the median Wellington property increased in value by 9.75% each year.

    The most expensive suburb in Wellington is Seatoun, which has a median house value of $2,112,000 and is located in Wellington City district. That means that Seatoun’s median house value is 81.66% more expensive than Wellington’s median house price.

    Not the full picture:
    SGD430,000 is good enough to buy a very decent landed house in New Zealand.

    The same amount is not enough for a five-room HDB flat in down town Singapore!

    Why other countries’ leaders given 4-5 years term can achieve/deliver without long runway but ours always say they MUST have long runway of 2-3 TERMS to achieve anything. Maybe pappies’ kids need 10-15 years to pass PSLE, and then they proudly declare it an ACHIEVEMENT, hor.

  • Dr Tan Tai Wei:

    When Dr Goh Keng Swee was Education Minister, I chanced to meet him, because he wanted to test if I was fit to join the Confucian Ethics textbook-writing team. He told me his concern that, with the increasing gap between the rich and poor, there would be social unrest, and MOE’s moral education was aimed at preventing this. I pointed out that government was increasing that gap and asked if that was another “economic reality”. He replied that if not, leaders and talents would go elsewhere, etc. I then wistfully pondered whether moral education would solve the problem by teaching them their moral obligation to stay, and not yield to temptation, just like this fine example of a Prime Minister.
