Whether you had to surrender your nifty Swiss knife because you forgot to pack it in your checked luggage, or dump the expensive aftershave or cologne because there was still 100 ml left in the bottle, we all have good reason to say good riddance to this poor excuse for a homo sapien.
Some characters are more difficult to get rid off. Like the Labour chief Lim Swee Say who said the national drive to raise productivity does not mean workers have to work harder and longer hours. He should know, he does not have a portfolio to be in charge of, yet he keeps collecting millions from the tax payers. And gloat about how his regular review of his CPF account balance make him feel rich, filthy rich.
When he talks about making jobs easier and smarter, he's not referring to your daily grind, always keeping an eye out for the foreigner who will take away your job at the slightest excuse in the name of globalisation. He's reminding you that with the abomination of the GRC chicanery and gerrymandering, it's easier and easier for him go with the flow and never worry about being voted out. Too bad he's not getting an iota smarter with each passing year. He still makes you want to reach for the mute button each time his mug pops up on the tv screen.
The clown who gave you the ridiculous "Cheaper, Better, Faster" (CBF) has come up with something more idiotic. His contribution on how Singapore should hit its productivity targets: "The first 'how' is to be CBF, the second 'how' is to make the job, make the life of the worker more ESS - easier, smarter and safer. In the context of Singapore, given our low unemployment, tight labour market, there's a third ‘how’. Beyond CBF, beyond ESS…that is to value every worker." Maybe he should start doing some real work, like fighting for the workers' minimum wage, before we put a value on his pathetic existence.
