".... find a machine that works, don't tinker with it,
run the system properly on the basis of merit, not nepotism and you'll always
find a way out of a problem. My ambition is not to preserve the PAP.
My ambition, having created this Singapore, is to preserve the system that produces the answers
that we must have as a society to survive," - MM Lee, Sep 2006.
My admiration of Ho Ching deepened about a year ago when I read her letter urging people to keep supporting NKF and Durai. Her timing and judgement was simply exquisite, it was one of those rare occasions when one gets an insight to the thoughts of a rigorously chosen elite. Other examples of her impeccable judgement was in buying Micropolis 1996 and Shin Corp in 2006. She is a fine example of how the PAP system preserves selected elites at the top.
Our esteemed MM Lee has reminded us yet again the importance of preserving this system. Without it, we will collapse. Thank goodness our esteemed leader has been blessed with longevity to keep reminding us of the importance of preserving this system that he created. Our nation will be so lost without MM Lee around, that is why we keep creating these new positions ... SM then MM to keep him in govt. He's 83 today and the country cannot do without him or HIS system.
So to honour our MM Lee, and contribute to the coming Singapore rebranding campaign, I propose a brand for the campaign....I'm sure the PAP govt will love it:
