China's Emma Lee vs Our Tan Cheng Bock
There were about 900 likes within the first two hours ST posted it on their Facebook page. All the comments were negative and unhappy why Emma Lee and her mother who are not Singaporean had seats at the NDP when most of us born and bred here had tried many years unsuccessfully.
Emma Lee must be completely perplexed and confused by the backlash she is getting. I don't blame her. How would she know? Among her Singaporean friends she is well accepted.
Below is our own Tan Cheng Bock a veteran MP who could not get a seat but have to specially arrange to be in a skyscraper to stay close to the parade.
This is a political and transactional PAP government. Dr. Tan is no longer useful to them and the likes of Emma Lee represents a grateful foreigner vis a vis complaining locals. But these foreigners do not understand what make Singapore tick. We do. The PAP leaders are so starved of appreciation, these foreigners are now preferred but politically suicidal for them to publicly admit. Singapore will have a short life if our leaders values are built on dollars and cents. Even Lee Seng Wee who passed away recently only wanted to do good and never bothered with public appreciation.
