香港星洲大不同


估不到連財爺曾俊華也學了特首那套乾坤挪移大法,將大眾視線轉移過來,單是討論中產問題,已教大家興奮不已,禤中怡也認為,繼訂立貧窮線後,政府應盡快制定「中產線」,按人口咖啡銷量及法國電影銷量等計算便可,簡單快捷,大家也不用懷疑自己屬於哪一項了。

財政預算案實不容忽略,而之前已講庫房續膨脹,財爺便話,在2012至2013年度財政儲備料增至7,340億元。雖然預料2013至2014年度赤字約49億元,恐怕無人會相信該數字,但政府其實預期在2018年底,財政儲備將滾存至高達8,503億元,以700萬人口計,人均多達12.1萬元,心理上大家會否好過點,因為在未來5間,政府預測我們又多了1,163億元!即年均財政盈餘可望有232.6億元,能夠繼續壯大政府,試問內地領導人怎不愛煞這個財爺呢!

至於一向被視為競爭對手的新加坡早香港一個月推加強壓抑住宅樓價措施,如推出商業物業的賣方印花稅,即使公布財政預算,星洲也要比香港快兩天。

畢竟當地有普選,執政黨有壓力,要想方設法討好選民,管不了奏效與否,如曾協助那些只有雙數樓層才有電梯到達的舊組屋加裝電梯,讓每層住客也可享受電梯樂而不用走上走落。

當地政府竟想出一項3年計劃,名為加薪補貼計劃(Wage Credit Scheme),僱主加薪時補貼提高金額的四成,未知香港的財爺會否效法呢?

同新加坡的傳媒朋友談起,佢似乎反應冷淡,她解釋,由於不能上街反映意見,故此財政預算公布亦只是「被通知」,好壞與否也無權發聲,況且政府較關注向家庭和兒童「派糖」,對單身人士的關注度有限。

不過,星洲政府常有大膽假設,也值得注意,因為當嫻姐提出利用天橋底作發展居住用途等建議時,人家早前已研究發展地下空間,除了原有的地底停車場外,甚至供居民及上班等用途,成為填海以外的土地面積擴充大法。

朋友打趣話,當地人也覺得可考慮,唯一不能接受的,就是不要住進地底第十八層,禤中怡聽後也不禁苦笑。

星洲要擴地,因料2030年人口膨脹160萬,至690萬名,與我們的曾前特首提倡本港人口見1,000萬何其相似。但新加坡朋友話,當地移民質素麻麻,兼要輸入外勞以應付一些基層工作的人力需求,可惜非靈丹妙藥。她舉例,早前引入來自內地的巴士司機,未知他們訓練不足,或掛念家鄉之故,曾經兩次發現司機走錯行車路線,簡直哭笑不得。結果?司機因爭取加薪而幫星洲引入罷工文化,恐怕最終被送回內地。

如果星洲的移民質素都話差, 那香港的那些就更不堪了. 大多是低學歷技術的婦女和還要供書教學的小孩.還有, 外來勞工並不是移民, 他們沒有資格享受星洲政府的任何福利.他們接受較星洲人低的工資, 從事他們不肯做的工作.沒有外來勞工, 星洲的物價只會更高.公車的服務水準會因勞動力不足而降低.
