The duty of the government is not trying to take away the benefits and rights from people. On the contrary, the roles of the government should generate benefits for people. If the economics growth don't benefit us, why we care about growth. "Our government don't understand this". Also, government's job is not business or do value added activities, we can do better than you and we don't need you. Oh, ministers' pay has nothing to do but like to create jobs for foreigners?
Also, Government almost doubled Singapore's population by brought in immigrants but it makes Singapore's aging population's problem worst and more severe? funny?
In fact, currently Singapore topped the highest GDP per capita in the world, as a Foreign Affairs Minister, do you think that Japanese live better or Singaporean lives better? or the hidden anti-Japanese prejudice that still plagues in your minds that why you like to condemning Japanese people.
