Aljunied resident: I am most disappointed by Chen Show Mao’s dismal performance
Posted by temasektimes on October 16, 2012
I am an Aljunied GRC constituent and I voted for Chen Show Mao partly because of his past star quality and partly because I abhor the indefensible humongous salaries that the Ministers are paying themselves.
I hope Chen bucks up to our expectation, because otherwise I would be in a dilemma whether to swing my vote back to the PAP. But I have vowed that for so long as the Ministers are grabbing such unjustifiable salaries for themselves I would not vote for them. So, maybe I have no choice but to continue to vote for Chen despite his poor performance.
It seems so long ago and so far away when Chen first joined the WP. My Chinese scholar friend even predicted that ten years down the road, PM Lee would lament to the high heavens: “ji sheng Mao, he sheng Loong?” just like the way Chou Yu (in the Romance of the Three Kingdom) did in his death- bed: “ji sheng Yu, he sheng Liang” after he was repeatedly outwitted by Zhu Ke Liang’s mastery.
Now, it seems that this prediction would never come true if Chen continues in his lackadaisical dismal performance. Perhaps we now have to turn our hopes to Chee Soon Juan who has been consistently outspoken against the high salaries of the Ministers.
