“In a democracy, someone who fails to get elected to office can always console himself with the thought that there was something not quite fair about it.” ― Thucydides, The History of the Peloponnesian War.
In Singapore, someone who fails to get elected to office can always console himself that next round, he can always tompang a coattail.
PM said on his Facebook page: “Lui Tuck Yew has told me that he does not wish to stand again in the coming General Election, and I have reluctantly accepted his decision. He had told me this early this year. My senior colleagues and I tried hard to change his mind, and are disappointed that we did not succeed.”
If I were his colleagues, I also don't want him to leave lor. Or else might become the next fella to kena arrow.
