Ropes or Petard for Roy Ngerng

The average and even the less than average Singaporean know which side his bread is buttered. Our society is practically unanimous in condemning Roy Ngerng and Han Hui Hui callous behavior recently at Hong Lim Park.

I have never agreed with the PM suing Roy. And the money Roy received for fighting the lawsuit wasn't so much for Roy per se buat as a lightning rod against defamation suits. The PM's father started it and for a different political context than the one we are living in today. That tactic should be retired already.

No more political entertainers like Harbans Singh. No more former bicycle thieves.

It was only a matter of time either Roy accumulated enough rope to hang himself or worse be hung by his own petard.

It was never about personalities and always about issues. We are not the Philippines or Pakistan by a long shot. Our leaders ought to have more confidence in our judgement.
