Missed the lunchtime rally? Here are 10 takeaways that we think that the PM wants you to know!
On passing difficult policies:
“If it’s so simple, why doesn’t the PAP do it? Are we stupid? We’d be more popular!”
On prudent national spending:
“You cannot write cheques for your children to pay..who pays for these goodies?”
On the changing nature of politics in Singapore:
“Our politics must be honest, people must be clean. If not stay out of politics.”
Making a wise choice:
“If you vote wrongly and the country goes down the wrong path – it’s hard to come back again.”
Creating good jobs and futures for the young:
“We made sure young generations have a bright future, with different pathways. Can we do better? Can we achieve our aspirations? Of course…Yes we can!”
How the PAP did it:
“Staying united is our secret recipe. It’s how we got to SG50, will get to SG100!”
A hint at PM’s retirement?
“…i’m not getting younger. We must have a team ready to take over, do better.”
Are these hints of future PMs?
“Ng Chee Meng, Ong Ye Kung, Chee Hong Tat have potential, can make a contribution”
On track record:
“PAP has been working hard on improving lives. Results speak for themselves.”
A jibe at the opposition:
“The opposition says voting them is like buying insurance. But if you want to buy insurance, at least buy from the right company!”
What the PAP is to Singapore:
“We are not the owners of Singapore. We’re trustees, stewards – like the “jaga”.
