To be expected and they will come out with all their own reasonings and we have to LL accept their decisions!!!!!
Far too many figures are never made known to the public for us to figure out how they make their calculations

Magical numbers!!!!!!! Hahahahaha.

Frankly, has not much feeling with this budget. what kind of help for the lower to medium income level?
Still need to read more for the next few days.
Only one good thing is the 40% corporate rebates but I need to read more about it on what kind of help or impact can be translated to the locals employees

Strong hint to voters ? Most likely ... not confirm.. see how voters perform loh... if give strong mandate to ruling party then maybe no hike ? Can use as a pitch during election...

But drastic alternative is let another party be gov .. also wont have GST hike.. but seriously majority of sporeans wont have the balls for it.

Depends on who said what lo. The same word by someone of no capacity can result him being sued while the same word by someone in position won't.

And words or action by 1 side are taken out of proportion while another side said something and than claim it's taken out of proportion.

Ppl permits.

Fart smells like perfume right
