Lawrence Wong Not Clear In His Statement About Quarantine Allowance, Now Says People Are Spreading Fake News

If Lawrence Wong's speech on the Wuhan virus was to be scrutinized, nowhere in the interview did he said that the $100 allowance is not intended for the tourists. However, he did say clearly that it will be given to those who are in quarantine, presumably including the tourists who are in quarantine. After all, how can Singaporeans be expected to read his mind, or indeed, how can Singaporeans even be expected to remember what the allowance was like back during the SARS virus.

STINGY SIS-IN-LAW TREATS MY MUM LIKE A MAID & REFUSE TO GIVE ALLOWANCE!

My brother and sister-in-law treats my mum like their maid. They would normally have lunch at nice restaurants before dropping their son at my mum's place. They dont even ta pao for my mum. The wife doesn't have any laundry to do at home except under garments & sleep wear. All her clothes are branded and sent to dry clean. She doesn't do housework. My mum & my bro do the housework. My mum still have to cook for them & sleep with her grand son. Whereas they enjoy peaceful night without the child crying & making noise especially when the child is sick.

PALTRY $80 INCREASE IN NS ALLOWANCE IS AN INSULT TO ALL S'POREAN SONS

PAP has lost all moral authority to lecture Singaporeans/TKSS about sacrifice as it is clear they are all hypocrites. If sacrifice means getting a 6-month bonus on top a 13-month pay, then shouldn’t NSFs be entitled to an additional 7-month bonus allowance? The $80 increase is really an insult; the increase should be $800 to reflect the ‘discounted’ real cost of sacrifice. Every dollar that PAP pays themselves, NSFs should be entitled to the same percentage increase.

HOME TEAM NSMAN GIVEN UNEQUAL WELFARE & BENEFITS COMPARE TO SAF NSMAN

While we are celebrating SG50 and the contributions of all Singaporean over the past 5 decades, I cannot help but think certain sector of National Service are not appreciated equally. I'm was a NSmen part of the Home Team and I served my nation unreservedly. Everyone knew that during National Service, our allowance was of mediocre amount but we all make do with what we had then.

HELP! ARE MY PARENTS DEMANDING TOO MUCH MONEY FROM ME?

I am a poly grad earning only 2.8k (before CPF) and I am currently giving parents $700 a month. That leaves me less than 1.4k after deduction of CPF. But recently my parents have been hinting and pressuring me to take over the support for the family.. Which means every month I will have to pay more than $1,000 to support them..

BEING PRIME MINISTER IS A DUTY, NOT A JOB, SO NO MILLION DOLLAR SALARY?

Likewise, this sense of duty should be transferred to our political leaders. PM Lee needs to understand that being a Prime Minister is not a job, not a profession but a duty, a duty to all Singaporeans. Since it is a heavy responsibility and a duty, PM Lee should not be paid his current S$ 2.2 million dollar salary but instead given an allowance where he can support his basic personal upkeep, accommodation, food and clothes.
