Paying through the nose.

Just a quick question since everyone's talked about it to death already:

Lee Hsien Loong's basically said that ministerial pay has to go up because they're really scared of losing them ministers to other industries because they're lagging behind on payscale.

"How many ministers have we lost to private industries in the past 10 years?"

If it was a pandemic I would argue that there definitely is a need to really tag ministerial pay to top private CEOs etc. But seriously, since LKY, has anyone REALLY been spectacular enough for private companies to headhunt them away from the civil service? The way I see it, there's not one single minister that I would pay top dollar to whisk away from his/her governmental position.
