Why all the wayang again Tan Kin Lian?

So TKL is thinking (again) of standing for president. Not the first time.

In 2008, he had expressed interest in running for the election if 100,000 Singaporeans signed an online petition of support. He got sumething like 1,200 signers. In 2009, he said he was not planning a contest any longer. He said (rightly) that he did not have the support of S’poreans. He blamed the fearfulness of S’poreans.

Now he thinking abt it again. Please leh: Want to stand, stand, like Tan Cheng Bok.

Why all this thinking of standing, not once but twice? Want the publicity? I note that yr friend who picked up yr forms was quoted as saying he was doing so because you were “not free”. This “can’t be bothered attitude” got this blogger very upset. Doesn’t yr attitude show that all this is Wayang?


For the record, I helped out when TKL was helping the minibonders etc. I think what he did took serious courage.
