“如果新闻、通讯及艺术部长年薪只有50万,当他和身价数百万的电讯公司总裁开会商讨政策问题时,可能面对一些困难。因为总裁们可能认为没有必要听取部长的意见与建议,因此合理的薪酬将有助于维持一点尊严。”义顺集选区议员林伟杰

 

“If the annual salary of the Minister of Information, Communication and Arts is only $500,000, it may pose some problems when he discuss policies with media CEOs who earn millions of dollars because they need not listen to the minister’s ideas and proposals, hence a reasonable payout will help to maintain a bit of dignity.” 
– Dr Lim Wee Kiat, PAP MP for Nee Soon GRC

Parliamentary debate 2007

May 10, 2011 at 6:57 am (Dr Lily Neo, Quotes from Singapore Politicians) ()

“Sir, I want to check with the Minister again on the strict criteria on the entitlement for PA recipients.  May I ask him what is his definition of “subsistence living”?  Am I correct to say that, out of $260 per month for PA recipients, $100 goes to rental, power supply and S&C, and leaving them with only $5 a day to live on?  Am I correct to say that any basic meal in any hawker centre is already $2.50 to $3.00 per meal?  Therefore, is it too much to ask for just three meals a day as an entitlement for the PA recipients?” – MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC,  Dr Lily Neo

May 10, 2011 at 6:12 am (Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Quotes from Singapore Politicians) (, )

If you want to dance on a bar top, some of us will fall off that bar top. Some people will die as a result of liberalising bar-top dancing.

Not just because they’ve fallen off the bar top, but because it’s usually a young girl with a short skirt who’s dancing on it, who may attract some insults from some other men. The boyfriend starts fighting.

Some people will die. Blood will be shed for liberalising the policy.”  – Dr Vivian Balakrishnan

“PM Lee said voters in wards won by the opposition cannot expect the same improvement promised by the PAP. I want to ask PM Lee one thing, “Whose money are you using for the upgrading?! PM Lee Who is paying your salary? PM Lee, who is funding your grow & share package? Singaporeans, this is your money. So can someone remind us, why are we still so scared of the PAP?”

For the next 5 years, do you want a fresh coat of paint in your void deck? Or do you want a voice to speak up for you in Parliament?” – Nicole Seah
