On the wrong ball

Our PM thinks that PAP should be hip and happening to connect with the younger generation. He sounded really out of touch with the people. In fact the government should be serious and not a court of jesters or entertainers. We don't need idols to run our country. After educating the masses, they expect people to be swayed just by trying to be a pop icon is silly. To connect and build rapport with the younger generation, they should COMMUNICATE intelligently with them. Don't try to sway them by looking cool and treating them as fools!

Well I suppose it's a good sign they are TRYING.

It could be worse isn't it? They could have said that the younger generation should be more like them, serious, stiff and sanitized.

haha yes better hip then sanitized man in white.

BTW Xenoboy wrote about this too. :) I kind of agree to what he said. It looks more like perception management to me than a genuine attempt to connect. Trying to be close to the younger generation so that they would do their bidding. I am beginning to sound like the bitter whinning singaporen. Better stop here :) hahaha

A good sign: I have a hope that a significant portion of my peers, perhaps the majority, won't be joining the conservatives come 2011.
