Mr Brown, once again, you spoofed the out-of-touch and self-absorbed ministers perfectly. I can't stop laughing!

Very good. Thank You very much.

Reflects the thoughts of majority of singaporeans.

Time will tell - that you and other like-minded citizens are the real heros and patriots

of Singapore. Goh Keng Swee , Rajaratman,etc. would not be able to recognize the PAP of today.

Hopefully another pay cut will drive away money-faced people from serving.

actually, i am more concern to find out what the government is going to do with the money. Are they gonna use it to reduce taxes for people or just going to put the remaining money into the reserves?

cystal 5 days ago

@cystal That means the respective Ministry will reduce the expenditure and the government will has more surplus for the reserve.

@gxteosin1 If students have more marks to reduce cheating, women should be able to use men's urinal in order to pee. After all it's all about urine. The form of discharge should be equally available. Then it's fair.

Some ministers earned a lot more working in the private sector than the pay they get as a minister.

@s10096209 Earning a lot more in the private sector doing what? If they are that good why need foreign talent? Do some research please!

Mp3SuperSound 6 days ago 2

@Mp3SuperSound You do some research.

People working as lawyers, CFO, CEO, etc in the private sectors earn a lot more than ministers. Some ministers that came from the private sectors earn a lot less than they previously did. One example is this Grace Fu.

If u want the rich to be humble and earn as much as the average people, then you're a communist. Communist country that way --> to china.

s10096209 6 days ago

@s10096209 Earning high salaries and being competent is one thing. Earning high wages and being incompetent is another. What has communism got to do with it in our discussion? Ministers are here to serve the countryand it's people, and not to further their ambition. Please educate me, tell me how many ministers are directors of companies ? How many times does a minister meet it's people in a month and for how long? Sorry to say this, but your coffee- shop reasoning carries no weight.

Mp3SuperSound 6 days ago 3

@Mp3SuperSound Please la, don't be a naive fool. Ministers don't do it for honour, glory, of for the love of their country. But they don't do it to get rich either.

Like I said earlier, if they really wanted to get rich, I'm sure they could've stayed in their respective sectors, possibly earning more than what they earn now. Mr K. Miss Grace. Mr S Jayakumar, some examples.

Communism - establishment of a classless, moneyless, stateless and revolutionary socialist society

s10096209 5 days ago

@s10096209 You speak like an idiot without memory. I see you don't have the sense of evaluation. Whatever knowledge you posessed is based on what you are told and not by research or critical thinking. How do you know how much they earn before joining the goverment? Have you seen their pay slip? What makes you think they earn much less now than before. If you got some credible evidence, please show it. By the way, do you know how many billionaires there are in China? Get some knowledge kid!

Mp3SuperSound 5 days ago

@Mp3SuperSound Like I said, do your own research. Go find out how much a top litigator owns, how much a director owns, etc. I see you can't even write out a simple reply without resorting to ad hominem. Of course there are billionaires in China. Please look up the definition of Communism and tell me I'm wrong.

Critical thinking ? Critical thinking used to solve problem. Better ur english first before asking ministers to drop their pay to the average Singaporean's salary. Communist.

s10096209 5 days ago

@s10096209 Are you schizophrenic or having somekind of mental delusion? Tell me, prior to my reply, did you not call me a naive fool? Now whos resorting to ad hominem?

You are losing direction in your arguement my friend. Why would I want to look up the definition of Communism? Where in my comment did I mention anything about Communism or ministers need to have their pay peg to that of an average Singaporean?It's all from you .Don't tie me into it. Looks like you're lost and confused.

Mp3SuperSound 5 days ago

@s10096209 Please do not debate with me base on assumption.

Mp3SuperSound 5 days ago

@Mp3SuperSound Asking you to not be naive is ad hominem? I'm sorry but you sound like a butthurt Singaporean who's not content with his average salary. My parents brought me up with less than $2000 a month, never heard them complain about how life sucks, how the govt is ripping off the country.

Isn't that what this whole discussion about? Ministers earning too much? I'll just say this again, if they worked in the pvt sector, they would be earning a lot more.

s10096209 5 days ago

@s10096209 Whenever theres some financial crisis, it will always be the common men in the streets that will be kick in ass first. If he is lucky he will not meet retrenchment but he will surely have his small pay freeze or cut. Worse of all, with reduced CPF contribution, some will find difficulties servicing their HDB housing loan. So this is what Singaporeans have been enduring all this while. Since the fire have started, let it burnout. See what comes next. Have a nice Sunday.

Mp3SuperSound 5 days ago

@Mp3SuperSound Closing the income gap, wanting ministers to earn as much as the people they serve, etc. All communist ideals. That's what this whole drama is about. Singaporean citizens never content with what they have and ministers talking too much.


s10096209 5 days ago

@s10096209 I would have agree with you if you had put it down as some ministers rather than ministers.It gives the impression that all are capable, competent and will be able to command high salaries in the private sector. Don't forget, for every CEO that asked to join a company, almost the same number will be getting the boot. This discussion currently going on in Singapore is not solely about discontention, It's complex and has been building up for many years. It finally came to light.

Mp3SuperSound 5 days ago

@Mp3SuperSound You have a pleasant weekend too.

s10096209 5 days ago

@s10096209 Totally agree but competition is strong in private sector. How many can stay maintaining a business & fight other challenges esp. in a small country?

Joining high govt post ensures long term stay in power. No retirement or retrenchment. Damn solid rice bowl. Treated like celebrity everywhere. Countless unseen benefits. Mistakes? No problem. Bonus guaranteed. No repercussions for bad decisions.

I want to join too but I am neither elite nor foreign talent.

Would so love the money. :(

Dear Minister Brown,

As a loyal supporter who empathize your recent pay cut, we are still generous to share our $2000 monthly salary with you by paying taxes. We can show you how to live in HDB, cut coupons for shopping trips, how to use Kopitiam or Popular discount cards. More importantly, we will teach you how to squeeze into Mrt and rush to your destinated meeting place. In short, you will not suffer a drop in your standard of living. You will have an exciting year ahead.

Akiyagami 1 week ago

@CactusAvenue Well, I don't know if you are from Singapore or not but basically Ministers getting pay hikes despite their already extremely high salary is ridiculous, not to mention when they do take the proclaimed "pay cuts", they still earn significantly higher salaries compared to others who have to do the same or even more in other countries... In short, most Singaporeans nowadays feel that the Ministers' actions promised are not met and hence do not deserve the salary they are drawing now.
