Ministerial salaries will be unaffordable if lowered

Posted on 31 August 2016

It will still be unaffordable if cut by 50 percent.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who know how to use a non-sequitur as a form of rhetorical device, have come out to say that ministerial salaries will be unaffordable if lowered.

This after The Straits Times reported that bus fares will be affordable if raised because this is the kind of thing that is characteristic of Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

One Singaporean, Fu Bu Qi, said in response: “Ministerial salaries will unaffordable if lowered.”

“This is because it is already unaffordable, regardless.”

“They can lower, lower and lower, also no use.”

However, other locals said raising bus fares to make them affordable might actually work in real life under some circumstances.

Jin Wu Lui, another local, said: “If I was a Cabinet Minister, you can raise the price of everything and it will all still be affordable.”

“And Cabinet Ministers will not need to pay for public transport because they all drive. This is the true meaning of a car-lite Singapore.”
