What no lecture, teaching moment from PM?

Congrats Germany on winning the World Cup! Argentina fought hard, but Götze’s beautiful goal was the difference. – LHL

Err thaz all from PM? And I’m glad. I’m not complaining.

I’m one of those who cringe at the memory of leaders past who used to try to use contemporaneous events to show that the PAP does things better or to disparage or lecture S’poreans. One GCT was the expert.

I couldn’t stand his attempt to use a tragedy in Japan (the tsunami in 2011)  to lecture us. https://atans1.wordpress.com/2011/03/14/learn-from-japanese-set-example-leh-elites/

So I was pleasantly surprised at PM’s Facebook message: short and sweet and accurate: that goal was sublime, as was the run and cross that preceded it.

PM could have pointed out that the German win showed that when the 6th best paid mgr (think PM and his cabinet) meets the 22nd best paid mgr, the 6th wins. Argie is only paid 23% (albeit a six figure sum) of that of the German mgr’s millions.

But then maybe a certain PAP MP eye doctor will raise the issue? After all he is clear in his mind that money is the measure of a person.

BTW, I juz saw on FB, Goh Meng Seng’s comments on the video of his performance at “Resign PM” event.

Don’t like that leh: don’t see PM no ak

The 28th Sun Valley Conference was held in Idaho from 8 to 10 July 2010. Attendees included Rupert Murdoch of News Corporation, Tim Cook of Apple, Jeffrey Bewkes of Time Warner and Marissa Mayer of Yahoo. Technology company executives are also expected to make a strong showing. On the invite list are Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, Intel’s Brian Krzanich, eBay’s John Donahoe and Martin Lau, the president of Tencent, a behemoth of the Chinese Internet industry. Jack Ma, the co-founder of the Chinese Internet giant Alibaba Group, is on the invitee list …

A few yrs back Lee Hsien Loong was a guest at this event.

Ang moh tua kees respect him, even if GMS doesn’t. But then GMS has strange tastes. He was adviser to to TKL who lost his deposit in PE2011. Rumour is that the dynamic duo is planning to form “The People’s Voice” to contest the next GE. OK, OK I made the rumour up.
