Judging by the half empty house (based on what’s shown on Channel News Asia) today, the first day of debate on the so-called hot potato Gerard Ee’s pay reduction review, many Members of Parliament may think the same too, hopefully reflecting their constituents’ views!
I am delighted my MP wasn’t present.
I find this constant discussion of pay, discount, benchmarking etc so, so distasteful. Even my mother’s Picky Siti won’t allow continuous discussion of her worth and use to us in $-terms — and she’s a lowly FDW!
I am surprised that no MP has felt insulted enough to tell those baying to pay MPs and Ministers less — a vocal minority surely — to go fly a kite.
I would. But then I’m no MP and have no desire to be — on whichever side of the political divide. 🙄
