See how kind the PAP is. They realized how low income Singaporeans all 300,000 of them and their families have been suffering all these years and would like to give them a one-off bonus to help them. Some cynics say it is for elections purpose and after the elections, the PAP will increase all the utilities, fees and get back more than what is given out. To these cynics, I say don't spoil the party for the poor folks. Let them enjoy the bonus first and not worry for a short while. It doesn't matter if things get worse for them, they are used to things getting worse.
People suggest that the one-off amount be about $1000, the monthly salary of these workers. Looking at my utilities bill, I realised this one-off idea has probably been in the works for some time - my electricity rate has increased 20% ahead of this bonus a few months ago. See how far sighted our leaders are?
Singaporeans are so lucky to have such far sighted leaders to give them one-off bonuses.
