They do all these just to tell 70% not to believe in Ms Sylvia Lim... guess they will be quite successful, many of the 70% will be convinced by all this kiddy acts.

Just makes the 30% more determine to VOTE AGAINST them! The 10% swings, fence sitters, i wonder if they squeeze balls.

53 years of independence, from 3rd world to 1st, yet GUTTER politics never left their blood. This is what they are good at. Let them convince the majority with such shameful methods.

Default NTUC confessed “test balloon” survey for GST increase

http://statestimesreview.com/2018/03...-gst-increase/

In yet another damning evidence proving the Ministers wrongly accused Sylvia Lim for lying, government statutory board NTUC today (Mar 15) confessed that they conducted “test balloon” survey for GST increase in Nov 2017.

The survey questioned 440 respondents if GST should be increased and when should it be done. The majority 38% chose “Between 2021 to 2025”, which coincides with the actual announcement 3 months later on Budget 2018. NTUC said that the feedback was not released to the public and only presented to the government.

A director of NTUC, Steve Tan, admitted he conducted the survey on GST increase on behalf of the government:

“NTUC have been conducting an average of 10 feedback exercises each year since I started heading it in 2015. As the voice for working people, the labour movement needs to be on top of their concerns. As such, we regularly gather feedback, both formally and informally… Naturally, this would include the national Budget.”

WP MP Sylvia Lim has earlier in Parliament pointed out that the government floated test balloons to check ground reactions for the GST increase. The statement warranted a strong rebuff from Law Minister K Shanmugam, Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat and Culture Minister Grace Fu. All three Ministers demanded her to apologise which WP MP Sylvia Lim, in a later parliamentary session, categorically refused. The opposition MP is now facing possible parliamentary actions for being “dishonourable”, which could see her being jailed for 2 years and fined up to S$50,000.

Is this fake news or the truth???

Not forgetting Chee Hong Tat our Senior Minister of State for Communications and Information and Health.

Nevertheless it would be very interesting to see how our MIWs defend this "survey" if at all it did happened.
And if this was fake news how the MIWs are going to deal with it!!!

Not saying it's false but let's say, a survey involved only 440 sample size to represent the majority, which coincidentally was also the gov decision, is a bit too far fetch.

However, I do wish this is real. If it is, the tables are turned on them for crying wolf. See how they sweep it under e carpet.

I'm sure like many agrees, PPAP screwed themselves on this matter whether there was such a survey. Their bullying method is primitive. I'm ashamed having such politics in my nationality. Bucket list, see e fall of PPAP from power.

I find it quite impossible to survey just 440 correspondents....... or probably out of those surveyed, only 440 want the hike within that period while the rest do not wish to have a hike. Possible ?
