Uncle, I wanna buy ice cream eh!
Two interesting points about Tan Jee Say’s 11 years of civil service career were that he served as secretary to Albert Winsemius(G’s economic adviser) and principal private secretary to Goh Chok Tong when he was Deputy-Prime Minster.
Why this uncle don’t want to continue selling ice cream at civil service? He like quite there eh.
Subsequently Ice Cream Uncle joined Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) in 2011 and contested in General Election 2011 at Holland-Bukit Timah GRC.
In the same year, he resigned from SDP to run for the 2011 Presidential Election. Sadly, we believed that he and Tan Kin Lian diluted Tan Cheng Bock’s votes. Sigh….
Seriously, fighting for $6billion safety net is suicidal. SingFirst has no system in place to effectively disperse the amount. Spending money based on projected future earnings is very dangerous, those with high credit card bills can tell you.
Further, this seems to be like a game of cards to Uncle. One moment GE, the next PE and now GE again.
Not everyone is cut out to be a politician. Jurong and Tanjong Pagar should be pretty safe.
Thanks and no thanks for hopping around.
