Singaporeans from all walks of life who have had it up to here are telling the PAP that they can handle being pampered for a bit.

This after Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information, Lawrence Wong, said populist measures should not be taken to make World Cup 2014 matches free for everyone to watch in Singapore and there is a need to pay a high price or else SingTel will go out of business.

Chi Hou Wo, a local, said: “I think it is okay for the PAP to be populist at least once in this lifetime.”

“They have been feeding us medicine for the longest time now and I think we can deal with some candy.”

Other Singaporeans said if PAP tried any populist measures on them, they wouldn’t even notice in the first place.

Mian Fei De, another local, said: “If PAP gave us a populist measure, Singaporeans will be mentally prepared to be pampered for it just like how we are always already mentally prepared to work hard and strive.”

“We work so hard, you give us some goodies can anot?”
