PAP checking out Chris K?

In Uncategorized on 10/09/2017 at 5:37 am

The tot crossed my mind that the PAP is reaching out to Chris Kuan when Chris posted on Facebook that he’s coming to S’pore to visit his parents and that while here he’ll be meeting Inderjit Singh.

For those who have forgotten, Inderjit was an MP in PM’s GRC and after he retired he became PM’s AMK campaign manager in GE2015.

So maybe he’s out to recce if Chris K should be invited to a PAP tea party. I predict a GE in 2019 after the 200th anniversary of Raffle’s founding of a British trading post is used to commemorate the achievements of the PAP.

Whatever, I hope Chris uses his meeting with Inderjit to urge him to talk publicly about what SME management and the PAP administration are doing wrong. He seems to portray SMEs as heroes struggling against the odds and that if only the PAP administration threw more money at their problems. (For the record, in most listed SMEs the shareholders cum managers mismanage. A common problem is paying family members to do nothing or where they work overpaying.)

Inderjit is a cult figure among the anti-PAP 30% because he keeps urging the PAP administration to do more for SMEs and in the process criticking its “help”. However I find his analysis incomplete because he doesn’t explicitly tell us what the SMEs and PAP administration are doing wrong.

I have to guess what he thinks they are doing wrong by reading between the lines. Maybe as a PAPpy he has to do this because he knows that only constructive, nation-building advice will be listened to by the PAP. But the proper way to analyse a problem is to first lay out the facts. And then propose solutions or remedies, not start from suggesting solutions or remedies.

Btw, I’m surprised Chris is open about who he meets. He’s a self-confessed fan of good spy-fi (like me) and he should really practice what he reads.

  1. Tsk tsk tsk, as a fan of good spy-fi yourself, you shud know good spymasters always keep a back channel to their opposite number on the other side to do deals like exchanging captured spies and sort out the mess left by politicians. Like Sir Nigel Irvine and General Yevgeny Karpov at Forsyth’s Fourth Protocol.

    • It ain’t a back channel when one one side decides to use FB to yell to the world about waz happening. ))) These channels only work when both sides are discreet. LOL.
