There was a time when PAP ministers were guaranteed 4 months’ bonus

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

No government should be given a blank cheque as politicians would of course want as many zeroes as possible on the cheque.

PAP is no exception: before it lost Aljuneid GRC in 2011, fixed components of ministers’ annual salary amounted to 16 months, ie guaranteed 4 months’ bonus. (link, see pg 12)

Absolute power …..

    Thanks Phillip, for your investigative work. Many Sinkies are in the blur about this. This is daylight robbery in the dark by the very own people that 70% stupid fools believed they can trust.

  • MarBowling:

    Stupid leaders like Chen Sui Bian of Taiwan and Ahjib of Malaysia took money from UNDER THE TABLE and both Kenna caught with their pants down. Chen think is still jogging and squatting in LOONG term imprisonment. Ahjib soon will be Kenna similar LOONG term jail sentence. He Always has to look over the shoulder bcos feeling guilty. Somemore the AG(Arsehole-General)and MACC(equal to CPIB)have to use the blanket to cover up everything for him. Now both jokers also Kenna implicated.

    “Smart” leeders like Lee Kayu and Gang went to Parliament to obtain endorsement to take money Leegally(in the form of obscene $millions salary)from THE TOP OF THE TABLE! Nothing to hide. No question ask. Can walk like crabs and with chest out. Somemore, can talk to filthy rich businessmen w/o feeling inferior and embarrassed.

    Anwar pun BOLEH.
    He openly FORGIVES DR M n even close ranks with his one time persecutor acknowledging Dr M’ *REFORMATION*.

    He said all this is for the * WEALTH OF THE NATION* unlike the PAPig$ who only MAKES THE RICH HERE RICHER.

    Their committment towards THE COMMON GOOD for THE PEOPLE is admirable.

  • idiocracy:

    Singapore is the only democracy that chooses autocracy every 5 years.

    I call this idiocracy of the sinkie.

    So LKY was fair… he even called you daft for choosing him to kick spurs into your ribs… and you say “Gimme more!”

  • Justice Alliance:

    JA = Justice Alliance

    JA is the OPPOSITION alliance, just like PH and BN in malaysia the country of pap Lj khaw boon wan and pap Lj janil puthucheary, the only difference is JA is in Singapore.

    JA is the alliance of WP, SDP, RP and a few smaller OPPOSITION parties.

    the main goal of JA is GE2019 to form New Government.

    Prime Minister Ms Sylvia Lim or Prime Minister Mr Lim Tean is going to ask new CJ and new AG to indict the pap Ljs and pap Cbs who by omission and commission have abused power for S$m, as mentioned by pap clown blood brother and pap clown blood sister in Facebook, and by clown nephew, and put them the pap Ljs and pap CBs in changi chalet as the rule of law in Singapore dictates.

    very well said, bro. agree.

    clown knows heart of hearts he is very unpopular lately despite having over 1 million followers in Facebook all of them generated mostly by bots or by human IBs paid to do via pap PA.

    imagine.

    even own BLOOD brother and own BLOOD sister and own BLOOD nephew have publicly revealed the TRUTH despite all the pap FAKE news generated to fake it. can even abuse parleement to ownself exonerate ownself.

    that is why typical clown pap talk, one minute hen one minute chicken. one minute no one and one minute more than one.

    imagine.

    a role as pm of Singapore. a joke under clown if one minute there is nobody another minute there is more than one. a clown joke.

    TRUTH is, after Dr Mahatir PH massive win against najib BN, clown knows clown pap is gone case. so to save face from no one now clown says more than one. truly WTF.

    Such practices are serious matters, and must not be simply write off. Proper justice must be met even the time had lapsed.

  • Couldn't trust PAP:

    Dont forget the returns they make from investments in properties that they have control of in supply and demand.
    Increase foreigners import, increase conversion to Singaporeans, reduce land supply, reduce flats building, change laws and rules, allow the rich and property developers to hoard land and properties
    Appoint themselves directorship in GLCs after retirements.
    Invest in their cronies companies that benefit from PAP policies, new, old or imminent.
    The ordinary folks especially the bottom half are struggling for a living.
    They reserve the government they voted in.

  • Bloody sin:

    Who dared to question on whether their pay is justified or not. They have tons of reasons to issue themselves fat payroll and now turns exorbitant. Suka suka squander the reserve, suka suka raise cost of living and increase GST. Everything they take without public concern.
