It’s payback time!

By | November 18, 2006

So, the Singapore government has raised GST from 5% to 7% and the people are complaining that the increase has come at an inopportune time.

Well, quit whining! Remember this is the same PAP government that you voted in during the recent General Election in May? You get the government you deserve. The next time the government hikes GST, transport fares, school fees, hospital charges, et cetera, et cetera, remember you are the one who voted for those idiots who made the policies. Besides, you fell for the carrot called “Progress Package” so shut the fuck up and admit that you sold your principles for short-term gains. By the way, if you had used your pee-wee brain to think about it, you’ll realise that there’s no free lunch.

And remember this when the next election comes around: If shit could be sold, the PAP government would tax your asshole!
