Death is preferable in such a world.
This after DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam declared that he is not going to be the next prime minister of Singapore.
One Singaporean, Zi Sha, said: “I don’t want to live in a world where Tharman cannot be my prime minister.”
“That will be living in a world of unfairness.”
Other locals said this is a failure of meritocracy.
Another Singaporean, Shi Bai, said: “Yes, Singapore has the best airport in the world. We have the nicest zoo. We got shiny buildings and cleaners washing the streets every fortnight.”
“But we don’t have Tharman as PM? What is this? A farce?”
At press time, six Chinese men vying to be the next prime minister is a testament to Singapore’s multi-racial society.
