Someone in TR wrote that David Marshall in an interview said he was paid $8000 a month in the 1950s as Chief Minister and went on like Marshall to rant against the PAP.
Based on $8000 a month, Marshall was paid $96,000 a year. From what I understand that could buy 3 bungalow properties in a then non-fashionable area in the East, say Frankel or Opera estate. He could have some change leftover.
Today, a minister earning $3m a yr, may juz be able to buy a bungalow in these areas with his annual salary.
Want to beat up PAP, join in the bashing, But don’t talk rubbish. Only helps PAP.
