Will next PM be a Visionary, Innovator or Influencer?

I couldn’t help but smile (Or was it a smirk?) and think of the leaders, the PAP 4G team are offering us as PM when I saw this on FaceBook.

Who is the Visionary, Innovator or Influencer among Chan Chun Sing, Lawrence Wong, Ong Ye Kung and Desmond Lee?

My view is that none of them fit into any of the three categories.

But neither did our PM or Goh Chok Tong. They were both Dominators of a sort. Of a sort because LKY could dominate them.

Any of the 4G contenders to be PM is a Dominator? Kee Chiu clowns too much to be a Dominator? Ong Ye Kung could be the one: Ong Ye Kung: “Is he the 4G leader with the killer instinct?”

Heng’s a Hesitator. And Queen Jos is a Denier.

Which personality types are Lawrence and Desmond?

    The current crop of 4G are not even on par, they are just lackeys of Pinky, the incompetent clowns.

    OYK has not done anything outstanding, I agree he looks to the best because of his humility, he does not insult or belittle public nor oppositions. He got the style of perfect gentlemen.

    As for the rest such as LW, he is a s*ake and ball carrier, he could not even manage pandemic well. Jteo is worst, just a total lackey of Mdm.

    No one in this 4G is a good leader for Singapore, Pinky is past his prime and Singapore deteriorated to such unhappy and pro third world FT migration haven.

  • One thing I know:

    The next PM is the same PAP’s DNA.
    He is a “collective” one, no one takes any responsibility be it Mas Salamat’s escape, Covid 19′s … they just collectively collect humongous pay year after year.

  • My preference and take:

    Among all the potential candidates I read and saw in the media, I like Ong Ye Kang the most. Some people may not like him because they say he sounds arrogant.
    Anyway which PAP Minister is not arrogant?
    Next Chan Chun Seng, it is the vibe. I shall not elaborate as you know people have many differing views about him.
    Lawrence Wong is a sycophant, bosses like this type of subordinate. He literally sat on his hands in MND. He tries very hard to look decisive and like a nice guy.
    Desmond Lee is a princeling, Lee Yock Suan’s son. He can afford to be a nice guy in his previous ministerial posts. Let’s see how he performs in MND.
    Never forget politicians go all the way to look like a nice guy because they want your support and vote every 5 years.
    Ong may not be the PM, the decision has already been made (by LKY) because his late father was a MP of now defunct Barisan Sosialis, opposing PAP. PAP fear he may be the Gorbachev of PAP.
    Chan may not be the PM because PAP cannot be seen to have another general to be the next PM immediately after LHL. He could have been PM after a seat warmer PM (unfortunately HSK saw through it and call it quits brilliantly), he won’t use too old as an excuse to be PM.
    Desmond Lee has “good” pedigree, rich parentage, need not be corrupt for maybe more money, that is what LKY likes, that is why LKY married his wife, daughter of a very wealthy banker …
    By Sherlock Holmes’ process of elimination and human nature, Wong will be the next PM.

    Whoever gets the job has the task of regaining lost vote share. If Singaporeans do not feel that this person is the right one then PAP can expect to look forward to their vote share declining.

    The current leader in charge has shown himself to be worse than useless with all the things gone wrong. His rush to hold the election last year backfired and this cements the view that he is nothing but opportunistic. Then the so called fabulous 4G have shown themselves not even up to the mark so naturally we don’t have a good impression of them.

    Goondu now has quite the dilemma on his hands. No one exceptional to take over which leaves him no choice but to be PM for at least until the next election. Hooray! More GRCs lost in a few years time!

  • Cynical Investor is DREAMING:

    The next PM will be more of the same because he cannot make substantial changes because “changes ” will be viewed as correcting a mistake. PAP hubris does allow it to admit it made mistakes and it made plenty including “Lee Con You”. Moreover, LHL will most likely remain in Cabinet to make sure his successor continue to “cover up” his and Lee Con You’s mistakes. PAP has too much “baggage”: and “sacred cows” so its vision is just more of the same self-serving PAP bullshit.

  • nathan chen:

    1 to 4 are negative traits of a leader. The present PAP government does not need the PM to have the traits of 5, 6 and 7. They get by so far by winning elections with 2/3 majority of seats in Parliament. 5,6 and 7 are good to have in any combination in business or politics. However, sometimes government leaders need to combine the negative traits with the positive to achieve its objective of the day. For example, to be a Visionary, Innovator or Influencer one also sometimes need to be a Dominator and or a Abdicator to see the plan through. The PAP leadership is always willing to take pragmatism to the extreme. The most recent example beinng denying any liabity for mishaps in the vaccination initiatives. They won’t admit that the covid-19 vaccine does have serious side effects and may cause permanent damage or even death. To admit this is to jeopardise it’s own vaccination programmes.

  • LKY started HDB "Ponzi Scheme":

    See this link on Youtube:

    LKY: HDB made a difference to Singapore
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yx_z_hA-GHg

    LKY started the “insanity” in the HDB resale market. 30+year old HDB flats selling for the same price as new HDB flats (with full 99-year lease) of the same size and in the same area. He encouraged the “property bubble” by implying the price of HDB flats will never / not allowed to go down. This of course is NOT true because the 99-year lease makes HDB flat basically a depreciating asset as the lease is used up. HDB’s Lease Buyback Scheme proves it.

    Former MND Minister Lawrence Wong is right when he said the value of HDB flat to its “owner” (actually just a “long term lessee” with the rent paid upfront) is ZERO when the remaining lease is zero. If the flat has to be returned to HDB at the end of the lease with no compensation then it has no value and is therefore worth ZERO. This is BASIC ECONOMICS and common sense. It is a FACT that LKY and PAP cannot change.

    It is true economic growth will in general cause a rise in property prices but this will NOT fully offset the underlying depreciation of the 99-year HDB flat even with HIP1 or HIP2. When the 99-year lease expires HDB flat will be worth ZERO to the owner because it can no longer be used.

    Sadly, nobody had the spine / balls to tell LKY that at the end of the 99-year lease HDB flats have no value (worth ZER) to the “owner”. Chan Chun Sing (one of the MPs for Tanjong Pagar GRC) was beside LKY in the video. He is suppose to be smart being a President Scholar but does not open his mouth.

    When LHL became PM he HDB was used to “drain” the CPF accounts of Singaporeans. They exchanged the interest-earning cash in their CPF account for an over-priced, poor quality, and BASICALLY DEPRECIATING HDB flat. HDB flats CANNOT be a store of value because of the 99-year lease. It was a gargantuan mistake allow retirement savings (CPF) to be invested in a basically depreciating asset.

    The “property bubble” basically made HDB a “Ponzi Scheme”. Such a scheme do not last. When the HDB Ponzi Scheme explodes it likely cause chaos and extreme hardship in Singapore. Then Singaporeans will realize that LKY did not tell the truth on HDB.

    LKY’s $$$inchiapor Incorporated is empty of natural aristocrats – implicitly.

    Nicolo Machiavelli advises the ruler to be a “great liar and deceiver” since men are quite easy to deceive; and that the ruler shouldn’t have an issue with lying in order to subjugate others. Machiavelli justifies this by saying that men are wi**** by nature and do not keep their words, likewise the ruler doesn’t have to keep his either.

    Most SGrean are dumb to discuss about how good or how nice the next PM should be. That is not how the top of food chain works. SGrean can’t even vote for ceremonial president after 2011, what makes us think we get to decide the next master to seal our fate?

    Until the day SG 1st family find the perfect alternate royal family for musical chair rotation, PM bloodline is already a predetermined process.
