Time Interview: Perplexed by LHL's choice
Read this last night, quite impressed with the PM vocabulary but also quietly sad near the end of my read.
Lula and Merkel? I think LHL is better than either of them. Anyway his father would have chosen past characters and he had in Charles de gaulle, Winston Churchill, Deng Xiaoping.
What if Merkel messed it up tomorrow? She is only holding together the Eurozone but not leading it. She is not able to carry the Germans along to a European future. Opinion polls is running her. LHL should have chosen an unambiguous historical character.
My worry? Sometimes I don't understand why some of his choices were smart and that is why we have this foreign population problem and a dysfunctional subway system.
I think we will get by but we will only do very well like the last fifty years if we have a better man. I fear the next person to take over wouldn't even be as able as him.
Singapore is such a hard place to run.
