Grace Fu given pay rise with promotion to Minister in Prime Minister’s Office

Posted by temasektimes on August 1, 2012

PAP MP Grace Fu who sparked a massive public outcry last year by complaining about the cut in ministerial salaries is now given a massive pay rise after being promoted to a full-fledged Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office.

A former Senior Minister of State at the Ministry of National Development, Ms Fu will also be Second Minister for Environment and Water Resources and Foreign Affairs, and will assist Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean on population matters.

Speaking to queries from the state media, an obviously elated Ms Fu said:

“People are Singapore’s greatest resource. I am very privileged to be given this opportunity in NPTD to look into our population issue, with its far-reaching impact that directly affects Singapore’s make-up and economic competitiveness.”

Ms Fu was rapped two years ago for lending her support to a ‘Water Festival’ organized by her grassroots organizations to make foreigners feel accepted, welcomed and happy living in Singapore.

    $-faced Fu chastised by sinkies is now richer with PM LHL’s choice of her as a full-fledged minister. Is this intended to show that the PM cares nought for gneral public opinion despite the expected backlash from the ppl come next GE? Or is the PM unable to see the political storm brewing in the near horizon which cld spell the end of the PAPies’ regime and payback time?
    Promoting Grace Fu to full-fledged minister despite the commoners’ displeasure for her $-face when, as a mp, she is expected to work with dedication and sacrifice for the coomon cause is not going to endear the PAP to the ppl and may hv a heavy cost to the party come next GE. Period.

      You seem to think too highly of Singaporean…do you really think you can make a difference just by talking and ranting on paper and voting the pappies out in 2016??? !!! Sooooo laughably naive! Opposition without action and bloodshed is mere lip-service!

      Careful. Police will be knocking on your door. Remember that threat from Mr. Yaccob? Can’t spell his name anyway. This is consider as an accusation in the eyes of PAP and their “dogs” Be very afraid.

    We need to pay more for greatest resource! Let’s see what up from the newly promoted ones!

  11. Exaggerated said

    They will always find a way to increase their own salary. Seems like everything they have done is just a facade. Just something to shut the citizens mouths. Cutting salaries on one end and raising on the other. How ironic!

    Not sure if man or woman..

    What’s the deal with the proliferation of these type of people in the government?

  13. bb said

    The PM has to reward her asit is abundantly clear she is instructed to voice out the cuts in Minsiters salary

    Well she has a big nose and we know in Chinese face reading means. she has an inmate ability to accumulate wealth. Guess that vacuum nose can suck up stray pennies. She will be rich even if she does not whine about pay cut. Govt if u want to save money then don’t hire big nosed people. Wonder how old she is as her lips r thin meaning she will have hard years ahead. Good thing got strong chin.

    According to some fortune teller,face structure can reveal a person character.Big Nose means highly sex! I think there were more than 1 BIG Nose in pap!!!! So funny!

    VERY bad Choice, PM!disgusting in my opinion….DisGrace FOOL!!!! …as bad as TPL choice!!!!

  18. money face said

    yes, she is right. singaporean citizens are the pappies government’s biggest asset – they are suckers and easily bullied. pappies govenment bring in several million FT to press down wages so that tamesek companies can have bigger profit margins, rather than to let singaporean have higher salaries, never mind if many singaporeans get retrench, face more work stress, married later or have small families.

    and singaporean men must serve national service so that tamesek companies can make bigger profits supplying to mindef and lsl is also shareholder in these companies. singapore army is to defend singapore? come on it is all about money.

    Field her in Aljunied in 2016 so that we can vote . . . . .

  20. John karung guni said

    Government must hire Karung Guni man so that all citizen will be happy with paying a minister with karung guni income. Who is happy with your boss salary when he just sit in the aircon room and gives you instruction.

    Take heart Singaporeans! At least we do know that PAP does indeed not ONLY listen to “feedback” on the “massive” pay cut that some of us had to endure BUT they also listen to the “minority”..

    Too bad that the feedback they chose to listen to is from within their own party ranks.. Grace Fu is definitely an example for us all to follow she has shown us all that we must stand up for ourselves if we want more pay…

    later i will muster courage to feedback to my boss on the ridiculous salary i get and the measly 1% pay rise year on year, not only that i will also feedbac to him abt the coffee machine in the pantry that was has never worked since i joined the company 5 years ago.. Viva La Grace FUUUUUUUUUUU !!!
