Now We Know This Grace Fu

"When I made the decision to join politics in 2006, pay was not a key factor. Loss of privacy, public scrutiny on myself and my family and loss of personal time were. The disruption to my career was also an important consideration. I had some ground to believe that my family would not suffer a drastic change in the standard of living even though I experienced a drop in my income. So it is with this recent pay cut. If the balance is tilted further in the future, it will make it harder for any one considering political office." Grace Fu [Link]

This was followed in Today [Link] where she said, "I realise my last posting could have been misunderstood. The committee has done a thorough job with a substantial recommendation over a fairly emotive topic. I accept and respect the recommendations," she said, adding she is "honoured to be given the opportunity to serve the people".

"However, it may not be wise to call for the trade-offs to be tilted further to an extent that it dissuades good people from coming forward in future," she noted.

Dear MsGraceFu,

This is what I understand from your exposé.
  1. If pay was not a key factor in your decision in joining politics, why write the above in your facebook?

  2. If you wanted privacy for your goodself and your family members and fearful of public scrutiny, why did you jump into the 'pond' to be a politician? It's a no-brainer.

  3. Loss of personal time? I'm at a loss as to how many hours you work a day. Ever try a 12-hour shift plus another 8-hour overtime as a Security Guard to earn less than $1500 a month?

  4. I doubt the tilted 'trade-offs' will dissuade good people from coming forward. In fact, it will separate the dregs from the cream. The greedy scums who join politics for money, power and grandiosity compared to the real McCoys who truly serve with their heart. Heard of the lady who quit her lecturer's job in order to be fair to her employer as well as the constituents she represents? Loss of personal time? She's looking forward to be self employed so that she's in charge of her time.

  5. Career disruption? So which lightning rod caused you to change job?

  6. Drastic change in the standard of living? How much do you want? How much is Enough? Enough for What? Caviar, Champagne, Truffle for your pet dog/cat/chameleon at every meal?

  7. The choice to be a politician was yours to make. For whatever reasons, you chose to give up your lucrative job to take the political path. Now that Gerard has jolted your rice bowl, it is good to know where you are at.

  8. Seet Ai Mee left. Lim Hwee Hua left. If you want to, I'm sure you are free to go. With your talents (as endorsed by LKY's PAPgotTALENTs), I'm sure you'll easily get another job that will pay you millions! Don't worry, should you (and the rest of PAP mintsters) leave, I doubt that my mother, wife, sister, daughter and grand daughter will end up as maids in other country.

  9. If you find it a chore and a loss of 'personal time' in bringing less privileged physically challenged people to places like Garden by the Bay, [Link] you know what you should do.

  10. Whether you wrote above for your own pecuniary interest or for the benefit of others seeking political office is for us to wonder and for you to know.
Sorry for having taken your precious 'personal time' to read this.

Sleep well.


Note: As I have stated often, the day they suka suka paid themselves millions (with dumbass justifications), they made a mockery of national service and nation building. They sold their respectability and honour and became a joke!. Sacrifice, my foot! Sadly so, the damage done is beyond redemption!

Grace Fu.
Resign immediately.
And show the ungrateful FMTTF and other Sinkies how much talent they are losing to the private sector.

Show the Sinkies that you are a bargain for the salary you are paid.

If you resign, I'm sure the PAPies will have to hire 3 Foreign Talents to fill in the big shoes you leave behind.
Resign now and show the Sinkies how indispensible you are to Singapore's economy.
Resign now and Singapore sure die tomorrow.

I will have accept her apology if she state that
"I realise my last posting could have been misfired."

Didn't she realize that the word "misunderstood" has long been overused by PAP ?

If she try new word, maybe we forgive her honesty LOL

Me thanks her much for waking up fellow Singaporeans and to see through the calibres of our leaders.

She is the rare exception who earned less than their last job, all the others who earned more than their last job after they became politicians should also resign to appreciate what salary level they actually deserve.

Ha ha ha......and we still have people who can't understand why people say the leaders of our country are totally out of touch with the people.

Don't blame our dear Ms Fu - after all, she does belong to the Elites right?

PAP politicians, yes and this included ministers, dont do much except to sign on to what the ruling elite have already decided. Their job is to grease the wheels of a system that has already been put in place.

So do they need to be paid such astronomical salaries?

Then Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean said of the 2007 pay increase: “If we don’t do that, in the long term, the government system will slowly crumble and collapse.”

After the pay cut, Prime Minister Lee (at US$1.7m) still earns four times more than US President Barack Obama (US400,000 a year) – and more than the combined salaries of (the leaders of) Britain, France and Germany.

I don't know why i always feel better after reading your opinion pieces. Your writing is clear, logical, cutting, sarcastic, humourous and written in good English. In my opinion you are one of the best contributors of your ilk. Thank you for being alive.

We have been doing just fine following the resignation of big guns such as Wong Kan Seng, Mah Bow Tan, George Yeo, Lim Hwee Hua and comapny, so what is the big deal about Grace Fu resigning immediately.

Even the stepping down of the Yoda does not lead to the collapse of Singapore?

What bargain are we talking about when these people are now being assessed to have been grossly overpaid.

I am a renumeration consultant and I have measured thousands of jobs, Grace Fu if you want to know the real truth and you can handle it, your job is not worth more than $500,000 gross per year if you are performing well. Since you havent, I think you better leave and let someone with more calibre take over,

Fish you are right.

While Singaporeans are still struggling to gain back our self-esteem after been forced to be 2nd class citizen due to influx of 3rd world foreign "talent" in our own land, these ministers are whinning for not getting enough dignity from the pathetic wayang pay-cut which is not even a pay-cut because they have self-approved their pay-rise manifold prior to the salary comittee rview. Until their salary are reasonably restored to match average PMET in Singapore, I will not vote for PAP. Let's hope to see many money greedy ministers come to light for us to see.
