This is called fairness and equality.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in a democratic society based on justice and equality, have come out to agree with one another that having appointed two Acting Ministers of Education means they must share one salary.

This after it was announced at the recent Cabinet reshuffle that two ministers will be sharing the workload previously done by one minister: Ng Chee Meng will be Acting Minister (Schools), while Ong Ye Kung will be Acting Minister (Higher Education and Skills).

One Singaporean, Zhen Gong Ping, said: “Since there are two Acting Ministers of Education, this means that they have half the work load each.”

“Which means each one must receive half the pay as well.”

“It wouldn’t be right to be paying each one of them a full salary when there are now two people doing one job.”

However, not all Singaporeans who heard of this felt this is fair.

Another Singaporean, Jiang Dao Li, said: “Letting them share one salary is unfair. Instead, they should be paid $6 an hour, comparable to the service industry rates in Singapore since they are servants of the people.”

“Actually come to think of it, the two of them must be allowed to fight each other at the end of each month.”

“The winner will take all the salary.”

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

LG-Ng-Chee-Meng

Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen announced on Facebook on Friday, July 31, 2015 that Lieutenant-General Ng Chee Meng will retire from the Singapore Armed Forces and step down as Chief of Defence Force on Aug. 18.

Speculation is rife that the 47-year-old might be running in the upcoming General Election believed to be held in September 2015.

If he enters parliament, he will be the highest ranking military officer in political office. Ever.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “No wonder it is called the General Election, where all the paper generals from the military will enter parliament.”
Kee Zho Peng, 43-year-old store manager

 

sian-half-uncle “If we asked all the generals in PAP if they have groupthink, they will all say ‘No’ together in unison.”
Yi Qi Lai, 63-year-old former army regular

 

happy-bird-girl “To go from serving and protecting Singaporeans in the SAF to annoying and inconveniencing Singaporeans as a politician is a huge step to take.”
Tiao Chao, 18-year-old in between jobs
