All plague on all the Tans

Where is each Tan on the curry issue?

Now what annoys me abt each Tan.

Tony Tan

You keep talking of yr economic and financial skills. Hey do remember that president is only a security guard of our reserves. Want to use yr skills, go reapply for yr old job at GIC, or go help yr niece manage the debts she must have incurred in buying control of Straits Trading.

Tan Cheng Bock

I know yr strategy is to use the retired grassroots activists that the PAP have discarded to get you the votes. But ain’t you forgetting that they got discarded because they no longer are of any use in bringing out the votes?

Pls talk abt more bread-and-butter issues rather than footie and racial tolerance. On the latter, it’s the FTs, not us, that are the intolerant ones. They don’t want us to eat curry, or burn paper during 7th month.

Tan Kin Lian

You keep telling us that the people asked you to stand. If that is so, don’t you think they would have volunteered to help yr campaign, and contribute money, without you asking? For the record, you asked twice.

The other candidates are not asking for donations, why you so cheap skate?

Knowing how thin-skinned you are, what assurance netizens got that if you get elected, you won’t propose to the cabinet illebral rules to tame cowboy towns?

Tan Jee Say

Why you found yr voice and conviction only this yr? You have been free to speak since 1991. Kinda convenient in an election yr? Where were you when S’poreans were saying no to the casinos in 2005? You after all have voiced in 2011 yr moral outrage at the casinos. Why not in 2005?

Why so silent abt yr experience at Morgan Grenfell and Standard Chartered?

As you want to tap S$60bn from the reserves, ain’t electing you to the  presidency the equivalent of allowing the fox into the chicken coop?

  1. Each candidate have their plus and minus points. Important point is they are sincere to serve the Country and the People. Should not pledge empty promises and act within the POWERS VESTED in your position for the well being of the COUNTRY.
    Any President Elect, don’t be a push over, PEOPLE OF SINGAPORE ARE BEHIND YOU

  2. Agree with above reader. Any President elect, cannot and must NOT be a pushover.

  3. Actually Uncle Cynical, it shld be “A plague on etc” not “All plague”. Believe u r punning on A plague on both your houses etc?” 😀

    • It should be “A …”. Didn’t want to show off my knowledge to the plebs

      Or “All’ swounds nice. Headlines don’t need to make sense.

      Or it was a stupid, honest typo that I missed.

      You take yr pick. ))))

  4. You are going to spoil your vote then?

  5. We should show respect to the 4 candidates after all they step forward to serve the country. Your readers are invited to my blog to share how we can pinpoint the candidate to be the right President for Singapore.

  6. Ngiam Tong Dow for President 2016!

  7. […] Blog: The Curious Case Of Tony Tan [Thanks yew lee] – Thoughts of a Cynical Investor: All plague on all the Tans – Blogging for Myself: Presidential candidates on their pay – TOC: ‘Not true’ that NTUC Income […]

  8. Ngiam Tong Dow does not seem
    interested to serve the people.
    Despite many netizens mentioning
    and calling upon him to stand for
    election, he makes himself totally

    • Why shld he bother.

      Many people via internet ask TKL to stand. He stand. But no physical support or donations.

      People now say TSJ their hero but come election day, will he lose his deposit, like TKL.
