Delivering his National Day Rally speech in Mandarin, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Singaporeans can lower their cost of living by using Wi-fi. The embarrassing dictator gave his million-dollar advice in his speech saying that video streaming using 4G mobile data is expensive, so Singaporeans should use wi-fi as much as they can or go home to download the videos they want to see.
Lee Hsien Loong then in his English speech talk about old policies like CHAS, and announced that the rich will be subsidised under CHAS without income mean testing. The S$2.2 million-a-year minister then went to sell CareShield Life’s higher payouts, but omitted the higher premiums and lower mandatory age, at 30 years old, that comes with the new mandatory insurance policy.
Calling healthcare costs “affordable” and “high quality”, Lee Hsien Loong also omitted the fact that the 2% GST was increased to cover the increased healthcare costs.
Lee Hsien Loong continued to sing praises about his old policies like Pioneer Generation Package, that was implemented in 2014. The Prime Minister then started talking about the Independence 60 years ago, and praised his father Lee Kuan Yew’s premiership that “led Singapore from third world to first world”. Lee Hsien Loong even replayed a 1960s speech by his father Lee Kuan Yew, saying that Singapore’s independence is hard to come by.
Lee Hsien Loong then announced the “Merdeka Generation Package”, which is a similar scheme to the Pioneer Generation Package.
The dictator Prime Minister then touched on housing, and lied that a 99-year lease HDB purchase is “ownership”. Lee Hsien Loong also lied that “in major cities”, rent cost 40% of household income and people overseas live in “tube” housing or “space”. Again, praising his father again, Lee Hsien Loong said the “founding fathers” invented the HDB idea. Lee Hsien Loong then lied that every poor person in Singapore have S$200,000 of wealth in HDB and “it doesn’t happen anywhere else”.
