Are you OK Doc Tan?

I’m wondering if Tony Tan realises that the president is only a security guard when it comes to guarding the reserves?

The speech he gave at the NTUC financial and business services cluster National Day observance ceremony on Friday morning, was a good one. He talked abt the worsening global economy and the uses that the reserves can play.  But it was the speech of a player, not a security guard. ://

So maybe he is hinting to the PM that he would like to return to GIC where he can play a meaningful role in helping S’pore steer through the crisis. He has after all helped built up the reserves to the extent that Tan Jee Say can say spending S$bn of the reserves on Jee Say’s plans is “small change”.

I for one prefer him to return to GIC. The elected presidency is too small a role for him. It was too small for LKY, it is too small for Tony Tan. Link was inserted at 6.25 pm on 21 August 2011.

  2. TCB promises to be a ”watchdog” if he’s elected into the Istana. Wow, is he lobbying for SPCA’s endorsement? Has politics gone to the dogs in SG? No wonder he wants to move PMO out of Istana – he gonna turn it into IsKennel !
