Wait, so now I get it..
Every time the PAP gives out ‘goodies’, it is actually not giving out real money. Just ask yourself, how much of the goodies did you really spend? Free SAFRA membership as part of NS contributions. Free Gardens by the Bay tickets for seniors, etc. if not, NTUC vouchers.
If you think about it, all these are PAP-affiliated entities. And visiting these entities actually show people really go to such amenities, and boost PAP’s apparent support.
Which means while giving ‘money’, it also wants you to spend the ‘money’ in ‘their’ entities, effectively also performing a “one pocket to another” show once again.
I hope Singaporeans punish such idiots and scumbags by voting from “one box to another” this time round.
