At 93, Mahathir’s leadership-in-action puts our PAP Ministers to shame

The chemical waste that has been dumped at Pasir Gudang and affected some 3000 people was most unfortunate. Yet, there are very valuable and eye-opening lessons that Singaporeans should take heed.

Having learned about the incident, Tun Mahathir flew in the very night to understand for himself first-hand the situation there despite being 93 years of age. Environment Minister Yeo Bee Yin was also on the ground that very night. She sought to understand the situation better attempted to keep things under control.

These are instances of true leadership and caring about the safety and welfare of the people. Let’s contrast this with the behaviour of our very well-paid PAP Ministers.

When our MRT broke down so many times in the past and affected thousands upon thousands of commuters, how many times did our transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan go down to the affected stations to understand the situation better? What about his 2 senior Ministers Of State?

Despite some of them not having proven their worth, those PAP ministers sure know that they must be paid a salary equal to what top earners earn in the private sector. Clearly, Singaporeans have been sucked so bad until they are so used to it already. So sad.

Anyway, I sincerely wish that the Malaysian authorities well.

    Didn’t Pap “Big Boss” called and labelled us as “daft” ???

    Actually,…we all “asked for it ourself” !

    Next time,…better think twice before you anyhow “marked an X ” and vote or somebody who “ridicules” or “insult” you,…”despite you being so kind and trusting towards them” !

    I guess $$$ and Power is “what they wanted and cared for “..that’s all !

    Don’t be a Daft no more !

    Well, don’t forget having learned about Tun became PM again, Pinky flew to KL immediately to meet him. He is also on the ball, probably to save his balls.

    Tun’s famous quote…if a leg is gangrenous or bad…don’t write poetry or sing about it…”Just CHOPPED it OFF”

    That is the difference…Singapore ministers’ will go to parliament to sing-write poetry and even cry to CONvince and get Paid millions for doing that…How to chop when the PM is the Prime Culprit himself

    Woah Simple Simon, you are naive beyond words….Mahathir and his environment minister visit Pasir Gudang, but what can they do to solve the problem or prevent it from happening again? Nothing! For our MRT, Minister Khaw no need visit but he can solve the problem already. You can see the difference in quality between our leaders and Malaysia? You better grow up!

  • can we report CI to police?:

    At 93, Mahathir’s leadership-in-action puts our PAP Ministers to shame

    it is not at all about age, 93 or 63 isn’t the issue.

    the issue is honesty. and the collateral damage of dishonesty is every Lj and Cb under the dishonest also become dishonest.

    What to expect, can even say “si-qui-kia” in Parliament. You felt he should go down and see for himself? IF he does, then that cyclist would not be out, he would not sue LZH and many many others.

  • The symbiotic relationship:

    Prophet Muhammad said: “The best of your leaders are those whom you love and who also love you; those who pray for you and you also pray for them. The worst of your leaders are those whom you hate and who also hate you, and you send curses upon them and they also curse you.” (Muslim)

  • No Pain No Change:

    What are you going to do about it, other than lamenting about “sadly”?
    Are you going to do anything about it?
    Being “sad” is useless as it brings about nothing other than more “sadness”.

    What sinkies need is more pain, pain will wake up dreams.
    Only more pain will stop talking but being about real actions.
