I applaud our esteemed MM Lee for reminding us of our good fortune riding on the grand accomplishments of the PAP. It is indeed the visionary leadership of the PAP that has bronght Singapore where it is today - I dare say that Singapore is not only different from Denmark & Finland we are also different from Germany & Japan. Germany & Japan were devastated by bombs and humiliation of defeat after WW2, but they were transformed within 3 decades into top 1st world nations. But Germany & Japan are different from Singapore. Why? The people who transformed these countries were not the leaders but the hardworking citizens. In Singapore, the PAP deserves credit for the transformation not the ordinary citizens who work 3 shifts at our factory for low wages, the masses who report to work every morning and return home in the crowded buses. ...not the workers who never went on strike for decades even when the chips were down took the painful CPF cuts without a whimper of protests. It is not the ordinary citizens of Singapore who transformed Singapore but the PAP. Thank you PAP.
That is why the PAP deserve their million $ pay checks and ordinary citizens don't even deserve 3 meals a day when they meet with misfortune and have to live on PA. That is why ordinary Singaporeans deserve to be displaced by the thousands of imported labor while the PAP is irreplaceable and its position of power is secured by repressing evil poisonous opposition. That is why ordinary Singaporeans deserve GST hikes, transport fare increase, means testing at hospitals and work until they are in their 80s....while the PAP ministers make in one year what we cannot make in our lifetime and also collect pension. That is why Singaporeans don't deserve minimum pay and some work full time jobs but cannot support their families while PAP ministers rightfully deserve to make in one month what these people make in 2 decades.
Now you can truly appreciate the grand achievements of the PAP govt as seen from the salaries they rightfully deserve. The PAP have once again prevented Singapore from crumbling and collapsing by paying themselves decent wages. I feel so sorry for the people of Denmark and Sweden who have to suffer from mediocre govt from time to time, their lives must be miserable living in a country without the benefit of PAP leadership.
