The problem with these 10 famous quotes from the PAP regime

1. Ex-President Nathan – a position that paid $4 million a year which many Singaporeans felt is excessive and it’s role merely symbolic. Mr Nathan is also seen as non-independent when he easily opened the key to our reserves three years ago when the government requested for more money to pump up the economy in the 2008′s global financial crisis. Seen more for carrying babies and taking photos with Singaporeans during the many open-house Istana occasions, many Singaporeans hope that the Presidential role can be enhanced so that he can speak out more for the needs of the common people. Mr Nathan also pocketed close to $40 million in total wages for serving two terms as our President and if we include his expenses, the total drain on tax paying money may total $100 million. This figure however is not being substantiated.
