Expenditures for SPH Media Trust

I refer to Leong Mun Wai’s recent parliamentary speech about the pap government’s expenditures specifically citing SPH Media Trust’s S$900 million over 5 years and the S$1.5 billion Sports Hub contract termination cost.

In total, the 2 unconvincing expenditures added up to S$2.4 billions of our collective taxes.

I have not forgotten Indranee Rajah’s responses. To say the least, her responses was disappointing, disgraceful even. She spewed plenty of hot air, thick, dark and suffocating hot air and left no one wiser even after listening carefully to her.

My commentary may not interest most fellow citizens because they are dry and monotonous, however, they concern each and everyone of us directly because of how our collective tax money is spent or wasted by the government. The issues that Leong raised was a S$2.4 billion issue or a S$2,400,000,000/ question.

Leong didn’t disappoint. I applause Leong loud and long for his logic, his courage and the clarity in putting forward his points which are very valid national concerns. Although pap ministers had on past occasions addressed both issues, still, they are far from satisfactory. If anyone disagrees, I suggest that they try asking their friends, neighbours or colleagues etc about it and very likely, the results will speak for themselves.

If S$2.4 billion of our taxes is not spent on those 2 items due to weak pap leadership, they could almost do wonders to help our young people buy cheaper flats and got them earlier, help them with higher chances of success to have 1 more baby, help our low income fellow citizens in some real and meaningful ways and trust me, there are many out there and much more…

Earning easy million dollars political salaries must never be allowed to blunt or numb pap ministars’ sensitivity and street wisdom to the cut and thrust of corporate mercenaries and corporate manoeuvres.

Think.

    Simple Simon,

    THINK we shouldn’t EXPECT any MEANINGFUL Response from this World Class Minister IndraKnee as her Holee Reply to our Patriotic Mr Leong is by giving her USUAL KNEE-JERK REACTION FOR DONKEY YEARS TO VERY TOUGH QUESTIONS PUT UP BY THE OPPOSITION! Take a CLOSER LOOK at her MOTIONLESS FACE EXPRESSION and MONOTONOUS Speech!

  • Eddie Tan:

    The main thrust of Leong’s speech is: getting value for money for the taxpayers. And need much more than just soothing speeches in Parliament: such as explaining how spending priorities will have to be trimmed back (like astronomically obscene high ministerial salaries & 5 unnecessary mayors) to correspond with lower taxes.
    Worse: taxpayers are funding the 151th ranking lamestream media which is known to be political propagandas done by conformists rather than journalists!

  • SINGAROAR:

    If this cost is removed.GST need not be increased.Why should the Public be paying for SPH losses when the gains are enjoyed by its shareholders? Why should we be funding a news media that works for a political party and not the Public. ST staff should resign if they have any dignity and shame.The Public does not support this news media.Kudos to LMW.

  • Different attitude of PAP:

    When PAP talk about their own spending like salary and expenditures, they are very generous and forgiving. When ask about helping the poor on inflation and during bad times, they are full of excuses and very stringent. They always said poor are well taken care of and become angry when people ask for money. Think why is this so? Why there are different attitude towards the poor and themselves? It is like asking beggars to get lost, isn’t it? We must understand the money belong to the people and must be use on the people. All Singaporeans are equal. Do not let Singapore reserve be waste away in wasteful expenditures and not on yourself. Vote for yourself next election, do not vote for rich, elite and powerful.

  • only stupid people vote pap:

    pap thinks by attacking Mr Leong MW citizens are going to think badly of Mr Leong MW.

    pap is making a big mistake.

    the only people who think along the lines of pap are the stupid people who vote pap. luckily, these folks are dying off and these stupid folks are becoming a smaller and smaller percentage of the populace.

    It is so true the pap Cb is a true pap Chao Cb. Who instead of answering the questions raised by Mr Leong MW she only BS’es left right centre. After hearing her talk, all one can remember is she didn’t really say anything.

    And this pap Chao Cb is paid S$m pa, courtesy of pap ownself pay ownself S$m pa system, on the basis of each other justifying each other S$m pa.

    So sad. Although the stupid people who vote pap are reducing in number, they still exist, and they cause harm to others by their stupidity.
