The four types of politicians we saw at the Singapore Budget 2016
Missed the Singapore Budget? Here are the four types of politicians we spotted during Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat’s speech.
Did you manage to catch the Singapore Budget speech? Well, I watched it and it was very interesting. We found out a lot about how much our economy has grown and how much money is planned for each sector. However, there were some things that we noticed that were a bit… off.
Here are the four types of politicians we spotted at the Singapore Budget 2016.
1. The sleeper
I’m sure every student in Singapore understood when some of the politicians started falling asleep. I mean, there’s always a sleeper. Always. It’s very long and there are no PowerPoint slides or breaks.
I do not blame them. I would have fallen asleep too.
2. The nose picker
It was a terrible, terrible day for whoever sat next to this guy when he decided to stick his finger in his nose and then wipe it on the paper that he passed on to the guy next to him. Some like to do it in private, while some like to do it on live TV. Whatever floats your boat, I suppose.
3. The BFFs
I’m sure every teacher in Singapore wanted to make some politicians do the silent clap today. It’s okay. We understand that it’s hard to not talk to your BFF when he is sitting right next to you.
Perhaps, they were making plans to visit Coney Island together when the new Outward Bound Singapore campus is ready. Seeing the ministers laughing with each other made us happy. Turns out, they are not as uptight as everyone thinks they are.
4. The ones that *actually* pay attention
And then, we have the boring ones who actually paid attention and took notes during the entire thing. Good job, guys! I applaud you!
So, there you have it. The four types of politicians we spotted at the Singapore Budget. If you want to watch the speech to spot these people or if you really want to know what was shared by the Finance Minister, you can watch it here.
