Thread: Here we go again.

    Default Here we go again.

    Many folks are overwhelmed with the recent 2014 budget announcement on some goodies. Before they rejoiced themselves too far away, here is the first bitter medicine that one has to take now.

    As I expected, our government has the tendency to balance the budget, i.e. what go out but also collect back from somewhere.

    The first announcement is the increased of service and conservancy charges with effect from 1 April 2014, followed by another increase in 1 April 2015 at 8 town councils. This is not an April fool joke.

    The reasons cited are that town councils' surpluses have been declining over the years, noting that with its rising maintenance and operation costs, they will "not be able to sustain their operations without incurring operating deficits”.

    Recalled that a few town councils lost a few millions in the Lehman Brother crisis, that have eroded a lot in the balance sheets of the town councils.

    The $8 Billions is just a smoke screen since it is for the minority, which can't even touch the money

    This one is for the majority and everyone can see the money in their wallet reduce
