Seng Han Thong in the lime light again

He was invited to the Blog TV programme to discuss the current SMRT fiasco. He quoted a post by a PR about SMRT staff that were Malays and Indians and could not speak good English and probably resulted in the problems last week. His insensitivity to quote the message verbatim was not taken kindly by the bloggers. Even Halimah Yaacob was offended and has to air her unhappiness.

Seng Han Thong has since apologized for his insensitivity which is really uncalled for as he is a politician and cannot forget how such remarks could be taken differently. It is going to do him no good.

Well, it happened. Just too bad.

First political "casualty" from the SMRT fiasco perhaps ? The skeptic in me would think that this is a stunt to divert attention from that Saw (tool) . Pehaps engineered by the spin doctors who are out in full force.

Unlikely. Seng Han Thong cannot afford such a stunt. He has no political capital to take any more bad publicity.

Seng as First-term MP not bad performance. But after that he become extreme pro-establishment. This is the exactly life cycle of a politician.

Ong Ye Kung has been appointed to be 'independent' probe into SMRT problems and will submit a report to an 'independent' COI to be appointed by an 'unaccountable and opaque' government.

Look at Ong Ye Kung's background. He is a PAP defeated MP in GE2011. He is a formal civil servant who observes official secret act and has been appointed an 'independent' director for SMRT. His wife is related to SIM LIM that is a construction company has been getting contract from HDB to build some 'high price' HDB even the new National Development minister has admitted overprice. This leads to an old associate professor Sim Lo Lee from ANUS appointed as 'independent' director of both HDB and SIM LIM during the period when SIM LIM was winning contract from HDB. So much for 'independent' director, 'independent' COI, 'independent' bla bla bla...

Be patient, the Fall is coming.

Sad to say this, Seng Han Thong is now a liability to the party. And he is not the only one.

Just like the rise of Asia is inevitable no matter how the Americans tried to mess it up, the fall of the party is just as inevitable.

Everything is starting to fall apart. A great housing scheme is now a big burden to the average sinkies. A great MRT is now breaking down as regularly as having common cold. A health system that is waiting to bankrupt the average sinkies. An education system that is good only to produce taxi drivers and needing foreign talents to fill all the top positions.

A whole new generation that is practically useless if not for the presence of the indispensable yodas....

He got a free plastic make-up, wonder if he is hoping for chances to make it even better?

After all the information in the media, I must correct my initial post which said he quoted the remarks of a PR verbatim. He was actually quoting the PR executive from SMRT and missed out the word 'Chinese' and only mentioned Malays and Indians. If he had quoted verbatim, which would include mentioning all the three major races, then nothing would have happened as no one would feel slighted.
