I was planning to blog on the significance of Dr Tan Cheng Bock’s comments on the PAP “volvo” over AIM.
But given that “PM Lee directs MND to fully review AIM transaction”, need I say anything more for the time being? Except that Mayor Doctor Teo Ho Pin has been shown to be a talk cock, sing song artiste, like KennethJ. Isn’t a PAP MP supposed to be better than an Opposition man?
And by directing “MND to take a broad-based approach, including re-examining the fundamental nature of town councils, with a view to ensuring high overall standards of their corporate governance”, PM is also recognising that there is serious public disquiet about Baey Yam Keng’s comments that,“They[town councils]’re not public institutions; they’re not a public service company … “I feel that we may be reading too much into the political association. Because in the first place it’s a political organisation.”
I was planning to blog on this issue given the significance of these words
— They came from an MP who was until recently the head of the regional branch of an int’l leading PR firm: a man who knows the importance of words.
— There are constitutional and governance issues if these words reflect the govt’s thinking on town councils.
But let’s watch and wait for the report.
Note: “And …” was added after first posting.
