Singapore will be ruined by the Opposition

So much talk about a freak election and an opposition that will dump Singapore. Nay. The current opposition is so inconsequential that they will not be elected. If they do, it will only be a small handful that could do nothing. The Singaporeans are not dumb. Should a opposition be elected in the next election, it will come from a new group of fresh face professionals. Not anyone who wants to be a opposition candidate can be elected. He or she must be credible. And should such a group come into power, it will be a big plus for Singapore. What I am seeing is that there are many potentials who are in positions to do a lot of harm to Singapore should LKY quit the scene. They are everywhere, in and outside the establishment. Some are just waiting patiently, some, the unthinking kind, will just be swept along by the new force of change without knowing whether it is good or bad for them. Singapore does not need an opposition to destroy it. Like I say before, the forces or factors that brought Singapore to its height will be the one that will bring Singapore to its knee.

The ruling party was once the opposition.

the people who keep saying that they are there to look after the interests of the country and people are very likely the people that will bring down this country.

too much goodness or presumed goodness can be deadly.

how does one judge the hearts of these new professionals that are as fresh as the cabbages in my neighborhood shop n save, or as credible as hucklebery finn?

I will never understand how your mind works. Here you have an almost perfect system that has been outperforming by all counts, respectable people that have the proven track records, and you are looking around for newbie freaks to change the system. Becos too much goodness can be deadly?

the newbie professionals are people who are doing well on their own in the industries. they, like those invited for tea and become over night politicians, are equally newby freaks.

the difference is the tea session and TOM to write about them and suddenly they are not new, they are tested!

Tested? They can't even stand alone on a one to one contest in a single ward constituency and need to stand as a group to get in. Some of them, like Mah Bow Tan and Heng Chee How were soundly beaten in a one to one encounter, but they still got in eventually via the GRC route. Tested by who? The tea-party host?
