    Unless you think S'pore could survive without all those, how you put it.... 'Tens of thousands each morning'... from working at jobs S'porean is unwilling to do... shipyard, cleaner, cooks, 40% of SBS's bus divers... etc. Do you think its possible that the gahman will take your 'advice/suggestion' ??

    Let's hope they consider to up VEP because COE really shot up. It was reduced from $30 to $20 in 2004 when the COE previously went down. Now COE is back to record high levels.

    Honesly, Singaporean are really rich so it's alright to rob some of their wealth to lay on the tarmac.....it's still better than being kidnapped and pay for the ransome

    Here's a Global Pay Scale (GPS) calculator from BBC for those whom are interested. It doesn't take into account less-developed countries offering a somewhat more accurate perspective.
