PM Lee's Exemplary Leadership

I was immensely impressed by PM Lee's highly anticipated response to Mas Selamat's escape. PM Lee said, "This was a lapse, what to do, it's happened."

Other than proving himself to be honest and incorruptible by admitting to the lapse, PM Lee has shown himself to be a charismatic leader of Singapore who also remembers to be consultative. By saying "what to do", he has shown us that his leadership style is consultative, contrary to claims that he is more authoritarian than he is authoritative. Difficult times have allowed our leaders to show their caliber.

PM Lee has also exuded the spirit of pragmatism that has helped Singapore survive all these years. His as-a-matter-of-fact remark, "What to do, it's happened," clearly shows him to be a dragon amongst men. Instead of crying over spilled milk and going into denial, he is able to admit to a mistake, accept it and move on. While many others have been driven hysterical, PM Lee has been able to remain calm. One can be sure that even if the opposition wins many seats in the next General Elections, PM Lee will not be fixing the opposition, but will say, "what to do, it's happened."

If the ministers offer to step down as a reward for me if I catch him, I will go and hunt him down....

As for the conspiracy theory... maybe some journalists will find Mas in Guantanamo?

You're still so good :)

Hi Molly,

Haven't read you for some time (my apologies of course) - and you're still one of my favouritest blogger :)

Dorothy (the one who interviewed you for her thesis)

Re: You're still so good :)

Hi Dorothy! Thanks. Don't have to apologize lah. As long as you are not reading the ST like the bible... :p

I suppose you haven't missed much. Have been rather inactive this year... :)

He has not commented on the budget surplus yet did he? I guess he will say, 'what to do, it's happened'. Somebody should collect all the great sayings of our great leaders and compile a book.

1. Mee Siam Mai Hum
2. Fix the opposition and buy my supporters' votes
3. What to do, it's happened

By others:
Retrenchment is good for Singapore.

ST performed national service

When I saw that line when it first appeared on ST online, I thought only some clowns from a Jack Neo movie would say this kind of wonderful words. As usual, I waited for our esteemed ST newspaper to publish in clear black and white words.

And ST did not disappoint, as always.

They did not include the "what to do, it's happened" part in their news report (ST, 10 Mar 2008, P3). The state-controlled media is worthy of the ranking they deserved. Did PM Lee and DPM Wong share the same English instructor?

Re: ST performed national service

Must be NIE-trained one, the instructor.


It is strange that our world class PM does not seem to think it fit for him to comment at the earliest moment after the crisis happened but had to wait for almost 2 weeks before he dared to open his mouth.

Where is the charisma that is worthy of a leader that is paid a world class annual salary unsurpassed by any standards ?

So all along have we been bluffed by our Government that our PAP leaders are indeed a rare species that is worth their weight in gold ?

They are indeed a rare species, but how much they are worth . . . I guess it lies on the eyes of the beholder (though they might have pulled wool over the eyes of many beholders)...

Let compare with public sector

(Anonymous)
I wonder how many of our top elites would still be holding on to their jobs if they had made the same blunders in the private sector(not the government owned ones). Since they use the private sector to benchmark their salaries we should also use a similar comparative study. Lets say a top economist paid millions miscalculates his forecast by some 300%. Would he still have his job?. What happens if the boss of the biggest security firm is responsible for the biggest security lapse and screws up the whole recovery process. Would he still have his so job? But only in pappy land do they not only hold their jobs but also get a pay rise. Guess accountability, honour and moral authority are now the new OB markers
