“If the annual salary of the Minister of Information, Communication and Arts is only $500,000, it may pose some problems when he discuss policies with media CEOs who earn millions of dollars because they need not listen to the minister’s ideas and proposals, hence a reasonable payout will help to maintain a bit of dignity.”

As he is one of the handpicked elect elite of the PAP, these remarks have to be taken as official PAP policy. “We only talk to people who earn more than us because they are the only people worthy of our respect.”
