Dr Tan Cheng Bock ‘is the leader Singapore deserves’

Lee Hsien Yang, the youngest brother of PM Lee Hsien Loong has praised former People’s Action Party (PAP) Member of Parliament and candidate in the Presidential Election 2011, Dr Tan Cheng Bock for his values and believes that Dr Tan is the leader Singapore deserves.

In a Facebook post made on Thursday (24th Jan), Mr Lee revealed that he has known Dr Tan for years and views Dr Tan as a man who consistently put the interest of the people first.

Commenting on Dr Tan’s registering of Progress Singapore Party, Mr Lee said that Singaporeans are fortunate that Dr Tan has stepped forward to serve Singapore.

I have known Cheng Bock for many years and he has consistently put the interests of the people first. We are fortunate that he has stepped forward to serve Singapore.

I only recently learned that Cheng Bock had his first clinic at Ama Keng at the far end of Lim Chu Kang Road, a remote and poor area. I didn’t know it at the time, but this was very close to where I used to serve as a young armour officer at Sungei Gedong.

Mr Lee also said that Dr Tan will groom future Parliamentarians who will serve the country and people before party or self.

Today, Cheng Bock will groom future Parliamentarians who will serve our country and people before party or self. This is good for the future of Singapore. Cheng Bock is the leader Singapore deserves.

Meanwhile, netizens are calling for Mr Lee to join forces with Dr Tan to defeat the ruling party.

Will Mr Lee join Dr Tan?

What do you think?

    Please lah, what has TCB done to deserve being our leader? He only an MP. He don’t have experience running any ministry. And he is opportunist, he is sore loser about 2011 presidential election. He just want revenge. This kind of useless people deserve be leader?

  • Natural Aristocracy Now:

    First of all, leaders are not born but evolve into that role. According to a noted authority on leadership, “The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born — that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.”

    The magic of leadership was best captured by Lao Tzu: “A leader is best when people barely know he exists; when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” This is the art of leadership at its best: the art that conceals art.

    And leadership as exemplified by Nelson Mandela who remarked: “It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory, when nice things occur. But you take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.”

  • opposition dude:

    Hsien Yang doesn’t have to join Dr Tan, he can provide support in the background. Perhaps with his network of friends and associates he can drum up support for PSP and hence, make them a formidable party to fight PAP.

    PSP needs numbers to challenge PAP for seats. I hope SDP and PSP can work together on this.

  • LHY, you can make a difference:

    LHY, you must realize how extremely difficult it is to effect change amongst Singaporeans, not least as a result of decades of relentless brainwashing by the msm.

    The likelihood of TCB stepping up is indeed very refreshing and welcome and it is already generating much stir. However, it is likely going to take much more than TCB’s presence to break the mould and shake up the staid mindset of Singaporeans to effect any tangible changes.

    Your stepping up to join force with TCB could make a difference. Your eminence, and more pertinently your stance against your brother and the established power order will certainly ignite the political landscape and hopefully set off the necessary fireworks that will trigger the long needed changes.

    Only both TCB and yourself please try to establish a unified opposing camp instead of the disparate oppositions we have presently. Bring into the fold the diverse opposition groups to stand under a unified umbrella, if we are going to stand any chance of effecting change.

    If TCB is as useless as you portrayed him out to be, why was the PAP so terrified of his chances of being elected for the EP to the extent that they had to resort to cheating overtly using unconstitutional methods to keep him out?

  • Form UOP:

    There are too many small Opposition Parties in Singapore and it will not be effective for any of them to win against the PAP in the coming GE.

    Mr LHY, may I propose that you form a United Opposition Party and bring all the Opposition parties to come under this umbrella and fight the PAP head on. This way people will just vote for only one party – the UOP. This will be more effective to remove the evil and greedy PAP.

    HY should join Cheng Bock. After all his surname is spelt differently from his brother.

    We need change badly……..and those biased Govt organizations such as HDB, transport, etc should be purged off their party cadres.

    Govt servants shd be independent of political parties……..they earn tax dollars to serve the people,,,….not take sides in political gamesmanship.

  • problem of a pliant parleement:

    when someone touches your son, and later your wife, you put tail behind your legs and pretend everything is ok? cannot lah.

    but in the art of toppling clown pap, the 1st rule is never waive the knife around for show. because when the knife is drawn, there must be blood.

    the toppling of clown pap is certain. the rot is deep, the sighing is incessant, the cry for righting the clown pap wrongs is getting louder.

    Mr Lee Hsien Yang must decide. what is blood tie? when your son, and now your wife, are bullied under a power abusive regime?

  • Dinners are just dinners:

    TCB is not Singapore’s Dr M nor Bernie Sanders. The likes of KJ are not keen on him. WP has not welcomed him into their fold. Yet that’s not to say that TCB and PSP don’t have a place. Just that they have a tough uphill struggle.

    Let’s face it, everything here has been fixed over the decades in a way that TCB and others just won’t succeed or just can’t fairly win, unless almost by fluke there is a groundswell of support Anson or Aljunied style. Whether Singaporeans care about fairness and a level playing ground or have been persuaded that no country is fair and no country has a level playing field is really up to them.

    Sure TCB can try his best to build bridge’s with P Singh and WP as well as KJ and RP, but will all his efforts translate to votes and seats in Parliament? Or is TCB just going to end up as another Indian chief heading another mosquito party. There are so many and they don’t work well with each other.

    Even if Lee siblings and their high powered partners/friends were to lend support and campaign alongside TCB and PSP, will this be of any help? It might only show the true splits in Singapore’s elite, but not be sufficient to really bring meaningful changes.

    Singaporean voters want to see candidates like they have never seen before, presenting issues in a way they have never seen before, and getting results in the way they have never seen before, shaping the country in a way that they want and mould the very idea of a fair and democratic Singapore itself.

    PSP is a new brand in politics. TCB can only fill the new PSP with those who want and have the ability to bring transformation.

    Maybe Inderjit but not Tharman. Tharman is having a good thing with the PAP. Tharman cares more about his bank account than SG and its citizen. After all 70% wants it that way, what you want him to do.

    Tharman would tell you to change the 70% first, before he changes side.

    LSY does not give a sh*t about $G locals. He just wants to use the electorate to force his brother to give him what he believes he is owed by birth i.e. another of the familee who wants his share of the spoils of this island.

    His support of ANY candidate that can go against his brother will show his true colours.

    Yet $G locals flock to him to lead them to a new future. Sad this bunch of $G people who always follow a familee member without thinking.

  • Not the Full Picture:

    Firstly, Dr Tan is too nice, too theoretical and too concerned about consensus building to be a leader.

    Secondly, what LHY is doing just demonstrates he has an axe to grind. In all likelihood LHL will step down within the next few years. As we all know and expect, LHL is likely to become some sort of a Senior Minister, and his influence will linger for a while more. But it will come across as even more vindictive if LHY goes on with this even when LHL becomes Senior Minister. LHY has taken a lot of potshots at his Brother, but in terms of what he might do better than his Brother, I don’t recall hearing any of that.

    We cannot have nice guy leaders. We won’t survive.

    And we have no place for personal vendettas. We have better things to do.

    Dearest Citizens of Singapore,

    If I may suggest, let us not gi witch hunting and merry go round on who is the aporooriate or best to lead Sibgapore by name or personality. With all due respect to respective citizen’s view.

    My point:
    (1) Do we agree that the present PAP incumbents including, the party elected Prime Minister? If it is a resounding YES, VTO in the next election

    (2) Elect the next Party to lead the people and administer the country for one term. If elected party proved cabale and for the citizens, elect them for 2nd ter.

    (3) Remove the current Parliment elected President. Reason, not elected by the Citizens of Singapore. It is ashame to assume the President’s office knowing that, it’s a flawed appointment. Thick skin President with no Citizens’ supoort.

    (4) Just present facts not arguments or assedsments or assumptuons. Singaporeans are well travelled, read and informed. Only those who continue to live in fear, will reap what they sowed through their generations of orr-springs. They will live by their own doibg.

    (5) Continue to seek the TRUTH with action(s) at the ballot box with Perserverance. Judgement day will come and Justice will prevail. Just like good over bad with all wolvies in sheep clothing shsll be exposure and eradicate soon.

    Thank you

    If Singaporeans have a right thinking, they will vote for the right party in Garment. Our current ruling party is on the downward slope day by day, with so much adverse remarks and comments. Believe this coming GE, there is going to be a hard fight and a big surprise to the ruling party same as in the case of Malaysia. Hope all opposite parties can join force and produce the surprise result.

  • Hawking Eye:

    Those who are politically conscious know the caliber and capability of TCB. He was the one who initiated Sunday free-parking at Housing Estates. He was popular and people-centered. He threw his hat willing to contest the Presidential Election. The PAP got scared and changed the rules to confine that one contest for minority candidates. In a real contest between TCB and Halimah Yacob, the winner, in all probability in my view, would be TCB. The PAP has made him an outcast. But he is not finished yet. He is bidding his time.
