Let me put this out: in the Singapore context, does ignoring the MSM do the country a favour? The MSM, is, by an large, a government spin machine and we all know that. The detainee escape fiasco (confluence of happenstance) and lack of leadership accountability is being pushed aside by calls from a person whom I was proud to acknowledge as my PM, the current Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong. Chok Tong has said that we should move on, with more pressing issues facing the nation. The lack lustre defence of DPM KS Wong by PM HL Lee last week, should not just be swept under the proverbial carpet. Failure of leadership, of accountability, or Doing The Right Thing cannot be forgotten. It might be forgiven, but not forgotten.
I will assume that KS Wong will not stand down and so be it. I cannot but lend my voice and vote to see him out of office. Yes, we have bigger and more challenging things to focus on. I shall continue to ignore MSM – until someone tells me that they have gained credibility.
