Opposing for the sake of opposing.

Following a 12-hour deliberation on the Internet where several billion people worldwide engaged in arguing one another whether the dress is gold and white or black and blue, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has waded into the discussion and declared via fiat that it is gold and white.

 

However, his pronouncement drew an immediate lengthy blog post rebuttal by CPF blogger Roy Ngerng, who responded by saying that PM Lee is unilaterally deciding the outcome of the dress’s colour without first consulting Singaporeans via referendum what they thought.

Ngerng wrote in his blog: “The Prime Minister of Singapore has once again showed that he does not take his citizens’ views seriously and decides on their behalf what the colour of the dress is.”

“What if there are Singaporeans who think the dress is black and blue? Who is going to represent them and their view?”

“Will the PAP be able to say that they can represent this segment of Singaporeans? What if there are other Singaporeans who don’t see the dress as white and gold or black and blue? What if there are Singaporeans who can see the dress is green or pink? Then who can speak on their behalf?”

“Is it right for the leader of Singapore to come out to declare what the colour is without first consulting his people? Is this how we have transparency and accountability?”

At press time, Ngerng is demanding to know if PM Lee’s wife Ho Ching and the rest of the PAP MPs also see the dress as gold and white, and if that is the case, there is a serious problem of groupthink in Singapore’s leadership.
