A Sorry That Has Little Meaning!

Ng Eng Hen apologized in Parliament today for the deaths of the 4 NS men during training in the last 17 months.

This “Sorry” comes too late in the day to mollify the anger of Singaporeans for the loss of our Singapore sons.

Where was he, Lee Hsien Loong or Halimah Yacob when Singaporeans grieved over the recent tragic death of Aloysius Pang. None of them saw it fit to attend the wake of Aloysius Pang or to express more sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family of Aloysius Pang and to the Nation.

There are times when the collective conscience of a Nation comes together and we grieve as a whole. Aloysius Pang’s death was one of those moments and this is not to downplay the deaths of other NS men during training.

At such times, the Nation needs to hear from the relevant Minister, Prime Minister and even the President as the Head of State. Sadly, all of them were missing as the Nation was grieving. Sending Lawrence Wong as the government’s representative was totally inadequate and inappropriate.

Contrast this with another recent bereavement where an army of PAP ministers and former Ministers attended. Are the PAP more interested in serving ordinary Singaporeans or their supporters?

    But Mr Lim when you tio sued by the PRC businessman, u also deny. However later you also pay up.

    There was zero apology from you as well .

    Vice versa. No good example set from Mr Lim yourself.

  • No PeiBu Teaching:

    Does it sounds like an idiot who simply cannot differentiate the seriousness of lost of life and those of commercial tussle cases?

    Whether he has any “PeiBu” teaching to appreciate someone whom risk himself unselfishly to speak out for those bereaved families in need.

    He is only sorry he had to miss his 10-course dinner to make the speech.

    I bet he did not know what he was required to speak about. Written for him you know. Just show up, speak and get paid.

    Tomorrow another 11-course make-up dinner – no problem!!

  • Be honourable:

    Hello hen, harakiri lah. That’s what your idiotic Cowaboowang proposed for any boo boo.

    You and Son of Gan should be honourable to carry it out.

    In fact, that Cow should have done long ago. Nowadays this clown just quietly MIA like his mai hum boss when failure occurs

  • Prep the NS youth early:

    If you want a robust military attitude to serve on the part of the male youth, prep them early in the form of encouraging them in playing war games, outdoor experience and hobbies like military ordnance or replica collections instead of showing them pretty girls, Pokamon cards, Manga, transformers and dolly playthings in the toy malls. Of course, they will grow up as tough potentials to go through the toughest military experience with little trouble and maybe zero accident rate.
    However, sadly our boys from young are conditioned via the softy & comfy approach, what do you expect from them who only spend time dolling up themselves in latest fashion and accessories and courting girls etc and when NS comes, you expect them to transform into Rambos. It just doesn’t match the reality.

  • Perspective:

    If a “sorry” is good enough for the bereaved family, then just leave it. They might be PAP supporters and/or do not want his death to be politicized. Why was LW at the funeral wake and not NEH who is the Defense Minister? We will never know. It could be for one of those national security reasons. LOL!

  • NotMyProblem:

    Ok now, Minister Ng apologised but where is the bow and harakiri? Never mind, forget about the bow, please do the harakiri!

    Minister Khaw, don’t you think so?

  • But:

    Why not.

    Loss of life is a fact .
    It also a fact – Tio sue, denial ( not forgetting claims and hints of political conspiracy ), in the end pay up.

  • A question...:

    Is Minister Ng Eng Hen a relative to the Familee.
    His voice n way he speaks sounds a lot like LKY, though not the fiery kind.
    Even the look is there.
    Just curious…
