Fawning Letter of the Day:
Leaders close to people's heart [link]
The two video clips the PM showed, "Taugeh not Enough" and "Taugeh never Enough", were not only highly engaging, they also showed he knows what is happening in our daily lives.What is wrong with newspapers nowadays, why are they printing letters from Secondary School students?
PM Lee also said Singapore should go beyond having world-class universities and start having first-class polytechnics and Institutes of Technical Education (ITEs).
I was surprised that he was able to list the different strengths of different institutions.
I have also come to know that PM Lee has managed to gain everyone's respect by really knowing Singaporeans at the microscopic level.
The last time any of my secondary school letters got printed, it was in my School Magazine, but even my School Magazine maintain some editorial standards.
Ok. Let's get this out of the way. It is the job of PM Lee and any leader of a country to "know what is happening in the people's lives" and to know details of different institution in the country inside out.
We all don't need to act surprised. IT IS HIS JOB TO DO IT. OK.? Don't need to "tripod" any leader just because they do their job well. Its their job because we voted them (their party) in.
Don't need to act all "thank you for understanding the citizen's plight" shite. To do his job, he must understand the people he is leading. I think thats the very bare minimum.
Play one or two videos during the rally and so easily win over you. Its just a freakin video played during a speech ok?
Last time I've checked, Videos have been played in speeches and presentations for a long time. Wow. And you think the rally was a big step forward because of two videos.
One more thing. There was more shite on the newspapers remarking that PM Lee was holding back his tears as he recounted his experience performing in the rain in the 1968 National Day.
Newsflash people. PM is also human. So don't make a big hoo-haa just because he cried. Ok, don't "Woo, the PM cried. He showed his human side". He IS human. OK?
