It is not often you hear Mediacorp radio plugging for the government but it happened this morning as we listened to the radio on our way to work. When I got the chance to check their facebook page, I found two comments pointing out this fact.
Meanwhile ST is playing it safe acting like a post box for Teo Chee Hean speech in parliament and providing no value added or opinion. Perhaps their editors must have had a thrashing behind closed doors from the government earlier. Cheong Yip Seng's OB markers helps us imagine how it might have happened.
But the problem is with Teo Chee Hean, the PM and his ministers given their flip flopping, back pedaling and pure amateurish communication. How could they have misread the ground and screw up so badly. Yet more evidence to prove that they are out of touch. May be they decided sometime back they don't need to be in touch. They are gods, what do they care? They are doing this for the good of Singapore and that somehow it will mysteriously be good for Singaporeans along the way. They conveniently ignore that the ongoing experiment was a failure. If they were fund managers, they would have been fired long ago. Well the lock up period is until 2016 and then we can fire them eh?
