First it was SM who used the Japanese earthquake tragedy to try to make a political point. (My take on his comments)
But now we have a minister I like, and usually respect, BG Yeo doing the same.
PAP, don’t try to use a human tragedy to push the PAP agenda for S’pore. It is so fourth world and insulting to the Japanese, dead and living. We are a first world society, so PAP leaders should aspire to the gravitas, decorum and manners of the Queen of England, a US president or British prime minister, not a Mahathir.
And if you think there is nothing wrong in using tragedy to push the PAP line, why don’t you use the death of Mrs Lee Kuan Yew to push the PAP agenda? I could write on the themes you could use, but I won’t because it would be disrespectful of her, her memory and her family.
