The winner this week is... PAP MP for Nee Soon GRC, Dr Lim Wee Kiak!
The good doctor said:
"If the annual salary of the Minister of Information, Communications and the Arts is only $500,000, it may pose some problems when he discusses policies with media CEOs who earn millions of dollars because they need not listen to the minister's ideas and proposals, hence a reasonable payout will help to maintain a bit of dignity."

Aiyah, now I know why my ministers don't listen to me. I don't earn enough.
In other news, PAP MP Irene Ng was irked by media coverage of the Workers' Party's Meet the People session (MPS) in Aljunied GRC.
PAP MP Irene Ng: "I started my MPS on May 9, two days after being elected as MP. Had a big crowd. Hardly any rest. No big media publicity. An opposition party started their MPS just yesterday. If that had happened in a PAP branch, imagine the flak...But I am not complaining. We serve quietly and hope residents will judge us by our actions, and not just our words."
