MM and SM to leave Cabinet
My worry is that the PM, few want to admit had mostly been implementing the MM's ideas. The two DPMs with him are colorless figures but among his ministers are some bright sparks. How are they going to reorganize and what will emerge? This is a moment of hope and anxiety.
And here is an exchange of sms I had with my good friend on what's happening I would like to keep.
Discontinuities are a fact of life, a healthy thing even if it is unnerving. We are ready. We just don't know yet.
At about 9.30pm, the PM responded to the media as follows:
PM Lee said: "It is a major event for Singapore for two major figures like MM and SM to leave the government. It shows that they are thinking of Singapore and for the future of Singapore. The basic consideration is what is the best approach for forming a team which would be most effective in solving problems and establishing rapport and trust with the people going forward for the next five years."
And here is the TV news version of it I just found.
