"I enjoy, you suffer". A good idea indeed.

Government policies won't please all: DPM Teo
Government's job is to make decisions after taking in different feedback

If everybody wants an MRT service, someone will have to suffer the dust and noise of a station being built, perhaps near his home.

And if roads are to be widened, people will have to accept that some trees may have to be cut down to make space.

Citing these examples of trade-offs that decision-makers have to make, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean on Wednesday sought to show that not everyone will be happy with every decision made by the Government.

Nevertheless, it is the Government's job to make decisions, even when they are tough and unpopular, he said

The question is, are you will to suffer a little by giving up part of your pay package for the well being of average Singaporean.

It’s easy to ask other to scarify while you and the Elites enjoy all the fruits and champagne.
