On political diversity

I refer to the letter of reply from Ho Peng Kee published in the Straits Times forum (16 Aug 2008). Before Ho Peng Kee can say that “what the country should do is ultimately decided through the ballot”, he must first say that the ballot should be free from manipulation and each person being voted in has truly contested and won through his or her own merits. If this fundamental basis of the ballot is not observed, then the ballot is no longer fair, and Ho Peng Kee and his government has failed Singapore and his citizens by making a mockery of democracy.

As for having delivered a better life for all citizens, I’m not sure if it is the other way round instead, that the citizens have delivered a better life, millions better for Ho Peng Kee and his million dollar minister colleagues instead.
