I can't remember when was the last time it was so fun to read the papers. Yesterday had many aggravating articles but today is completely different.
Quoting the man last paragraph today.
Great dumb ideas are tough little beasts. You can spray them with proof, you can blast them with statistics, but they will not die. People protect, feed and care for them. A great dumb idea is a thing of beauty.
Makes me wonder why the Education Minister didn't use such stories when he was trying so hard to sell every school is a good school.
Of course my experience is understandably different since one of my children regularly fall through the cracks. However it will not detract me from the benefits they have created for many others.
Most aggravating articles yesterday. What a contrast.
Christopher Tan is a first class correspondent on the transport beat. I bet he understand our transport system far better than anyone in LTA. Why don't they enlist his help instead of giving him ample opportunities to intelligently point out their shortcomings instead. Some silly ego thingy here?
Raymond Lim was the worst transport minister ever. So much of our problems with the system today was created during his watch. The problems Mah Bow Tan brought us with housing are far easier to solve and he got so much more brickbats compared to Raymond Lim. Well life is unfair.
The ex-minister was talking stupid isn't it? This guy is a paper only minister. Two-party system forging consensus? Get real! I would have thought he would have easily failed the LKY test. How did he get into Cabinet? To err is human but this was a really costly error.
No consensus. Real life is constructive engagement with honor and by the rules and frequently aggressive negotiations. Up front, in your face and refrain from Wayang Kulit. Then what about consensus? Look up the Constitution.
