Ministerial Donations

Two month’s pay? Quite a sacrifice for those few in the new Cabinet who are reliant on official salaries for their income. Since they are being so, publicly, generous could we know who they are? And at the same time who, among the mega rich “Ministers” are or intend to be a trifle more generous?

Critics might well say they should turn in ALL their salaries in this national emergency and just concentrate on trying to mitigate the effects of the virus. That would put them on an equal footing with those who have seen, or will see, their jobs disappear as a result of Covid.

But no. Two months (and who can check if this actually happens) is a small price to pay for temporary occupation of posts gained by treachery facilitated at the highest level. especially if simpler souls can be induced to see this as a charitable act rather than a cover up.  As the saying goes you can fool some of the people some of the time but not ALL of the people all of the time. As they will discover.

Your views are valuable to us, but Sarawak Report kindly requests that comments be deposited in suitable language and do not support racism or violence or we will be forced to withdraw them from the site.
