Of GST and Social Welfare.

Funny. Sometime ago, some idiot tried to tell me off for complaining about the PAP by saying that I should compare the paltry taxes we paid here in to the exorbitant taxes that were paid in Australia.

GST in Singapore: 7% and climbing.
GST in Australia: 10%


Seems like we're paying welfare state taxes for non-welfare state perks. Nice. Meanwhile, I'm just going to say that if we're raising the goods and SERVICES tax, we should then be getting a heck of a lot more service.
