No need for 4G leaders

If we believe what we say, what we claim, 1 in 2 Singaporeans who is alive at age 65 will live past 85, maybe 100 years. That is what the Lifelong Insurance Scheme is all about. LKY and Chok Tong will live past 85 to 100 years at least, given the quality of life, food and medical care. Hsien Loong too will be in the same boat. What do these mean? It means that in the next 30 years we will have 3 living PMs in charge. All tested and predictable leaders. We can't have 3 mentor ministers and more senior ministers to go with without bursting our budget. With the three around, there is no need for a fourth generation leader for the next 30 years. So no need to worry so early lah. Unless we don't believe in the assumption that all those who reach 65 will live past 85 to 100 years.

Who says we cannot have 3 minister mentors and more senior ministers? It is just up to them to nominate as many as they want, money no problem. After all, we can afford billions to invest overseas. In time to come we may have more grand sounding titles to go with the jobs. They are very good in rebranding and offering money to people to think up new names for old places, only to revert to the old name afterwards. Trust our Government with our .....???
