‘F**K you Sir!’ – Angry JC student scolds DPM Teo for dodging questions at Pre-U seminar
Posted by temasektimes on June 2, 2012
Despite the positive spin added by the mainstream media on Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean’s lecture during the recently held Pre-University seminar to a group of young students from junior colleges, polytechnics and centralized institutes, many were disappointed with his speech and the way he dodged their questions.
A report on the seminar by Channel News Asia gave the erroneous impression that the DPM Teo was ‘engaging’ well with the students:
“I’m quite cheered by that because it means that the students don’t have a blind optimism. They understand that there are challenges, but those challenges can be overcome and if we do put in that effort together, we can do that.”
However, one 17 year old participant of the seminar later wrote on his blog that the students were very unhappy with DPM Teo for using the usual PAP gimmick to ask the questioner to provide solutions when confronted with an intractable problem:
“The participants made it extremely clear they were dissatisfied with DPM Teo- and when we asked about our concerns which we do not know what can be done to solved, he will give the fucking ridiculous reply “What do you think (can be done)?”.
He was absolutely disgusted with the answer given by DMP Teo to ‘smoke’ them and hurled vulgarities at him:
“We seek your opinion. You gave us none. And when someone manned up and replied, “I am 17 years old, I don’t know what to do”, the crowd went berserk in applause. Fxxk you, sir.”
His views appeared to be shared by MediaCorp celebrity and Young PAP member Tay Ping Hui who tweeted two days ago:
“Was told if I was going to comment on something, I should provide solutions instead of just talking. My reply:” then what am I paying u 4?”"
