What is the reason for needing more time?

Lee Hsien Loong, apparently, did not give any reasons for the 4G supposedly needing “a little longer” to decide on who their leader will be.

The newspapers – touted as “high quality journalism” by a former minister recently – do not think it important to find out what the reason or reasons are?

In all the reports by the three main government-controlled news outlets here – namely The Straits Times, CNA and TODAY – which reported on Lee Hsien Loong’s party convention speech yesterday, none of them reported what the reasons were for the 4G to need more time.

Is it because there is in-fighting for the position? Is it because the cadres cannot come to an agreement to support one man? Is it because Mr Lee himself feels none of the three is capable enough to helm the party? Is it because the frontrunners do not yet have enough exposure in the ministries? (CCS and LW have been in politics for 10 years, btw.) Is there revolt in the PAP grassroots? Is it because they are distracted by the covid19 situation?

Is it because none of them want the job, and are still being persuaded to take it? Or is it because all of them want the job and there is an impasse?

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR NEEDING MORE TIME?

Doesn’t Mr Lee or the 4G or the PAP think they owe Singaporeans an explanation?

After all, Singaporeans have given Mr Lee and the PAP 17 years to plan this transition. (Not to mention the tens of millions of dollars paid to these “top talents” through the years to enable the PAP to find a team.)

    LHL should resign. PAP can choose it own new PM. It is time Lee family get out of politic and not let Singapore continue to be Lee dynasty. It is time to let Singapore be on the path of democracy. We cannot let dictators rule Singapore anymore, let them take the ring for themselves like in lord of the ring. Singapore was form to be a democracy, we cannot let a few people change the democratic course of Singapore for their own selfish reason. Singapore was not invited by US to attend Summit for democracy. Everyone in the world know Singapore is not a democracy, is an authoritarian. Now where is Singapore heading in the future is worrying. Singaporeans mostly know nothing about democracy and freedom and many of them condemn democracy and freedom. Because of few people want power, they make the whole nation ignorant of democracy and freedom. People of Singapore should be educated with knowledge of democracy and freedom. They should know their rights and have people power. This is 2021, not Qing dynasty. Only democracy and freedom work, not authoritarian rule. Let Singapore be a democracy again.

    Firstly, the decision on succession shouldn’t be up to the 4G; this only indicates a very weak or a bo-chap boss. (17 years doing what, hor?)

    Secondly, Loong already threw in Heng as successor but somehow that didn’t sit well with the younger Gs; again this indicates the boss has very poor leadership par useless.

    Lastly, to lay eggs, of course needs more time. So far, the 4G has failed and failed and failed in many implementations or policies. By law of average, even for clowns, given a long enough period of time, a golden egg may happen – then they will scramble to claim any credits.

    I agree. The supreme may decide to bypass the seat-warming part and straight away parachute the prince into the position.

  • Harder Truths:

    No one dares to try the leeder role at this time. Too risky. Must pass the buck until things go back to normal. If someone dares to be leeder the others will bring him down.

    But things are not going back to normal. So they are stuck. They are thinking “Cannot be leeder. But must somehow be leeder. How?” No one can solve the problem.

    Go round and round and round until koyak.

    The panic button has been pressed and the only excuse given is that more time is needed yet again as usual. They said a decision will be made before the next election so let’s see if this will come to pass or just a smokescreen.

    The way things are going now the goondu son is going to stay on until the next election. But it’s ok because we are going to make him have another 9% vote plunge and GRCs lost. East and West Coast GRCs are ripe for the taking in the next round!

    None of the 4G are fit to lead so whoever is chosen will just continue to lose GRCs!

  • Relax:

    An “aquarius” (horoscope) man always think he is the smartest person in this world, so it’s difficult for him to find someone that he is satisfied.
    Somemore “aquarius” and “dragon” both horoscope signs are very self-centered , so both combination makes it worse.

    IF the choice of “piss-m” has finally been made, I bet the white emperor will continue to rule Sinkieland as SM and lastly, as MM. Probably, he will serve another 8 to 10 years after a new piss m has been decided. And, of course, continue to collect millions of tax payers dollars $$$$. By the time he finally leave cabinet, his son could be another new piss m, thus continue the Dynasty !!!

    In addition, Mrs Harimau Yacult need to abandon her Throne to make way for Temasek Foundation ‘boss’ – seems all events needed to be synchronous, aside for probably constitution need to tweak again, mostest likely to ensure loopholes to be plugged so tt even a new Tan Cheng Bok or a new NTUC Income fake chief cannot be run near the Throne.

  • illiterate pap voters:

    the delay in handing over power is because of S$m source of wealth.

    the lky son pap current chief clown must ensure whoever he appoints must remain loyal by not instituting any investigation into the lee family source of wealth.

    after all, everyone knows lky made S$3k pm as prime minister. only late in the game was the S$m pa schemes put in place. so for such a family, if their S$m wealth is not commensurate with source of funds then no brainer thieves worse than najib and wife 1mdb.

    THEREFORE. die die must delay until very sure the appointed 4G prime minister is loyal and will not break ranks to institute any investigation into lee family source of wealth.

    I think the following:

    1. 3 front runners – LW, OYK and GKY were thrown into the pandemic pool to show their incompetence.

    2. Cotton Chan was faced with a student murder, he only appeared at the school and after that he let the Deputy handled all the news conferences on Q and A. It is obvious, someone up there did not want him to be tainted by this incident.

    3. Cotton Chan is 50+, the next PM would do at least 2 term before stepping down, so it means he is likely take over before handing over to clown prince nearing 70.

    4. Cotton Chan is distant relative of Empress Dowager, Empress Dowager mother and Cotton Chan shared the same blood group, they are distant relatives, Cotton Chan was found wearing a black band during the old man funeral.

    The three stooges are running along to show there is competition but ultimately it was decided by Pinky and Empress Dowager. They are placing a relative to seat warm before handing over back to dynasty.

    the best strategy now is to and win AMK GRC, disposing of LHL.

    to add to that, you think CCS is the chosen one, then remove him as well at Tanjong Pagar.

    you cut the head of the snake, then you cut off the neck also, make sure another head doesn’t grow from the neck.

  • Lee Dynasty Ends Here:

    What is the reason for needing more time?

    After using up 17 years of precious time, still need more time? What a great procrastinater!

    Let me make a calculated guess why he needs so much time.

    1. It has nothing to do with the 4G leaders.

    2. It has something about himself as follows:

    A. Indecisive by nature.

    B. Poor judgement of people. Therefore, unable to select the right type of people to surround him.

    C. Unable to attract quality leaders because all he wanted all these 17 years was to have good, obedient and loyal followers, not leaders, not quality leaders who can think out of the box independently.

    D. Waiting for his son to say “Yes”.

    E. Waiting for his wife to lay the ground works.

    F. Waiting for Christmas! Not one, but many…..until the cows and buffaloes come home.

  • Wah… heard Khan resign liao. If I were WP, I would get all the MPs of Seng Kang to resign to force a by-election. This is called strategy, get the report card for PAPies on this C19 through a by-election.

    Then we see if the PAPies kenna trashed or not. If WP loses, then it means they have failed the people and PAPies deserve to get the GRC back.

    What do you think?

  • shit happens:

    @TRE TECH i think you need need to look beyond, your view is really beyond me.

    PAPPY is very good at preparing the ground, this is like mid term to a 4 year GE. If WP resigns, a by election is called. Lets say WP wins again, PAPPY will start to understand more about the defeat and make more plans to screw opposition and to sway the public. So if PAPPY wins again, it might not be a good thing as people have short memory, just like Punggol East….. by election… in the end, Lilian lost.

    WP will work extra hard and put another new minority into the ward to run the ground again, this is a good thing for WP and residents. If this happens just before GE, Khan will cost them votes, but this is like 2 years before next GE. So WP to be hit mid term is a blessing in disguise.

    The only thing that can happen is PAPPY push and trigger by election to get rid of WP, this is what can happen. They underestimated their own game of saying no need by election with Mdm Halimah who resigned to be appointed EP.

    If all of us can remember WP has $50M lawsuit for AHTC corruption being dragged for so freaking long, do you guys smell something?
