The gaffe of MP Seng Han Thong

MP Seng Han Thong composed a sad tune, now facing the symphony of his rhapsody !

I supposed the saga of Seng Han Thong should have been concluded. But FM 93.8 Live now and again repeating Ah Seng's apologies and trying to explain more "complexities'

I believe as an MP and politician, it is idiotic if he really brings racial issue to the already great disappointment of the SMRT breakdown, where peoples' adrenaline are towards boiling point.

Ah Seng's off-the -cuff delivery of words may have been an honest mistake but when race issue is brought to the fore and under such tense moment of anger and disconsolation of the SMRT system collapse, many of us would have been quick to 'gun' Ah Seng down....Initially, I was greatly displeased too !! How can a veteran MP speaks like that, without thinking !

So the moral of a politician's story is...Speak less if you can, silence may be the best answer at times...In Chinese saying ..we always say "Think thrice before you speak".

And it seems more new young PAP politicians, MPs, even minister of states and acting minister thinks they have the lawful right or aloofness to say what they wish..They forgot the "emotional charge" they are unnecessary transmitting to the general public..Please be discerning !!

Personally , I think since Ah Seng sincerely apologised not only once but twice and even Shanmugam spoke up for him (which is not necessary, why should he be kaypoh and seemingly defending Ah Seng ?)...Ah Seng must be a man to face the music he composed!

More words spoken , more complication. Simple plain explanation of why it was spoken and sincere, wholehearted apology may touch many but not all.

Never forget, we are dealing with human beings of diverse mindset, each forming their own ideas of a situation or happening and many a times from a Richter scale of 3, it shot to 8, and a political explosion may be on the agenda.

The Fall of Mankind and Libya !

The fall of Mankind and Libya !

The world is a stage for manipulation...People would never forget Iraq... Under Saddam Hussein when the Western world accused him of his sins, but the country was moving on..What happened after the fall of Iraq....Daily innocent death and lives for the people were never the same anymore...

The pullout of US troops and others is a sad testimony of a world who just cannot let others live their own lives and embrace their own destiny...How would one quantify the amount of evil and good before and after Iraq's fall?...We need to form our own mind's perspective !! the outside world and with western media propaganda painted it as a dreadful country of suppression ...but a leader like Col. Gaddafi...if he can rule Libya for 42 years....can't the world see the country's development and progress for their very citizens???

The human mind is the most sinister weapon to create dissent and disconsolation to gigantic scale....The agenda of world power, the dissatisfaction of humankind, the envy of some, the poverty of many are all catalyst for cause of uprising with quantum force of deadly consequences.

Human bestow upon human the sin and terror of the world..There will never be an ending as long as humankind delude themselves with power, corruption, fame, fortune and political hegemony...

Let the world reflect on their own mindset and what had NATO done to humankind...Is there a greater death to humankind than just a mere takeover of Libya and the many lives lost??....Many questions would never be answered.

On our local front, S'pore is in transition after 52 years and PAP is under the baptism of fire....Let it not spread into a conflagration please!!

The true power of a person is one who knows when and how to LET GO....For no power will perpetuate till eternity..Is fame, fortune and power that important when there is no life to live for it???

Col.Gaddafi is now dead !! Libya has to 're-invent' itself again.....
