Singaporeans applaud PM Lee for ‘engaging’ them on ‘National Conversation’
Posted by temasektimes on September 17, 2012
Together with fellow PAP leaders Heng Swee Keat, Indranee Rajah and Intan, PM Lee held a well-scripted conversation with an audience of about 50 Singaporeans, a number of whom are prominent PAP activists and members.
Despite his hectic schedule, PM Lee still takes time to talk to Singaporeans and engage them on social media which won plaudits from most Singaporeans.
Fortunately, there are no pesky, irritating and radical opposition members in the audience which makes the conversation smooth, constructive and non-confrontational.
Some comments from grateful Singaporeans on PM Lee’s Facebook:
“I really appreciate the effort of taking time to engage with Singaporeans. Truly, many Singaporeans need to be engaged into deeper thinking, understand the bigger picture and rationale of why certain things are so, also for the better and common good of the majority, and move away from selfish and critical posture. Thank you for caring for the Nation.” – Michael Koh
“Great PM who has a passion and vision to make Singapore a better place.” – Julian Wong
“Dear PM Lee, I really respect you for the way you have done to engage us and shows your resolve to word harder for Singaporeans. But I have zero respect for Singaporeans who think they are bolder than politicians and give no respect to fellow human beings, but being rude and not thinking before they post certain things. To me, these are Singaporeans that think stupidly and behave stupidly. Our years of education have been wasted on these people who are paralysed in the way they behave, as if they grow out of a hooligan society, and I feel sad for them, wonder who taught them to behave like that. But I think they deserve no pity. So PM Lee, continue to engage us Singaporeans who are constructive and want to genuine do better for the country. :)” – Darryl See Koo Leong
