Botanic Garden has appointed a Briton as the head of the
Garden after an international search. With his reputation as head of the fame Kew Garden in London, his credential is unmatched by any Singaporean. With this move to search the international arena for the best talents to help Singapore to become a betterer country in everything, it is a matter of time before they go on an international search for the Prime Minister’s post. They may also look into the position of the President. George Bush is here, and they may want to sound him out if he is interested. We can’t have these high profile positions filled by nerdy looking candidates.
We have sent so many students to the best universities in the west to learn from the best. Many would have studied in the same university as the newly appointed director. Why is it that he is betterer than all the best Sinkies we have? Did they keep a few secret chapters to themselves and would not teach foreign students so as to maintain their higher level of competence? I don’t think that is the case.
I think it is in the blood. The Westerners have good genes, genes that will automatically put them as choiced CEOs. Even if they are educated in their worst neighbourhood university, they will still look like a leader and will be hunted down by international search firms for countries that lack leaders, like Singapore.
Should the govt continue to send coolie children to the great universities of the West when they will still return looking every inch a coolie, no leadership quality? I think a better option would be to breed them. Take our best and marry the best of the Westerners. Then maybe there will be hope that the new Sinkies would be of leadership material to lead our national institutions, and looking every inch like an angmoh, suave, refined, handsome and six feet tall.
