SMRT: Desmond was economical with the truth isit?/ New job?

In Uncategorized on 23/04/2018 at 9:57 am

In January, Kuek said publicly that rumours of his resignation were speculative: neither denying nor confirming it.

But last week

The Straits Times understands that the search for a new chief executive (of SMRT) was initiated when Mr Kuek, 55, offered to resign soon after last October’s tunnel-flooding incident.

Constructive, nation-building ST

Because SMRT decided to look for a new CEO last October, this means that when Kuek said in January rumours of his resignation were speculative, that that comment was a lot of bull. He had offered to resign and SMRT was looking for a new CEO. He was on his way out. Nothing speculative that he was on his way out.

Whatever, the tunnel-flooding was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.

Coming back to Desmond. Given his skill in being economical with the truth he should replace s/o Devan Nair as the PAP administration’s chief of communications. S/o Devan Nair has been doing a lousy job in spinning the “right” narratives.

  1. oi be careful what you wish for LOL!!!

  2. It was quite obvious on his face during the parliament hearings that he was forced to attend.

    And he was probably doing jack shit for 5 full months in between as a lame duck CEO, but still collecting multi-million dollar full salary plus bonuses.

    Not the best way to end a career, but definitely much better than 90% of sinkies!! LOL!

  3. Luckily they were delisted… Otherwise such behaviour would be a breach of disclosure laws and common sense governance
