"2012 Budget leaves no one behind, says Shanmugam" [Link]
"Younger S'poreans should not be burdened with taxes: K Shanmugam" [Link]
If this is not a case of 'Chui Kong Lumpar Song', I don't know what it.
I'm doing my best to suppress my disgust, my anger and my urge to scream "KNNMCCB"!
"only about 50 per cent of Singaporeans pay taxes."? This is carrying it a little to far, even for a lawyer! We pay GST (Goods & Services Tax). For diapers and milk powder, even a baby has to pay taxes! Play with words, fudge, but don't, please don't insult the public with such silly misleading statement. "only about 50 per cent of Singaporeans pay taxes." indeed!
I recall the 2006 GE and the PAP manifesto was:
The Secretary-General and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong launched the PAP Manifesto at the YP 20th Anniversary Rally on 15 April 2006. The slogan, “Staying Together, Moving Ahead”, reflects the main thrust of the Party in the coming General Election. Through the ground up and join-up approach, the Manifesto has embodied the aspirations of Singaporeans from all walks of life.
In this issue, Petir outlines the key programmes initiated by the PAP Government to bring Singapore to a new phase of growth and to develop Singapore into a vibrant global city which we can proudly call “Home”. The Government has also put in place safety nets to ensure no one is left behind as the nation moves forward.
With the completion of introduction of the new candidates and the launch of the PAP Manifesto, preparation for the GE is now complete. The Party is fully geared up for the much anticipated event.
Majulah PAP, Majulah Singapura.

Since 2006, the nauseating "inclusive society" slogan of "Staying Together Moving Ahead' so preached by PAP was nothing more than "Chui Kong Lumpar Song"! Through the period, the rich got richer! The poor got worse! The little red dot got disintegrated!
When Budget 2012 was hailed as an "Inclusive Budget" [Link] [Link], I rushed to the toilet. I puked!
If we had "Stayed and Moved Ahead Together" since 2006, why the fook is PAP flogging the dead horse again?
Integrity, honesty and steadfastness are qualities needed to build an inclusive society. Unless and until words are put into action, the song remains the same!
'Chui Kong Lumpar Song' = Hokkien for 'Mouth Speaks, Testicles Titillate' (Talk Cock Sing Song?)
"KNNMCCB" = Hokkien for 'Go Mess Around With Your Mother's Reproductive Organ"
