Ex-president SR Nathan’s Freudian slip caught on camera?

Posted on 28 September 2013

Comments he made take on a new life after more than one year.


In old footage of a television interview dug up by people with too much free time on the Internet, the ex-president of Singapore SR Nathan was captured on screen in a Freudian slip moment.

His comments — made during the final days of his presidency — were telling as he let slip that he wanted nothing more than freedom: “I want to be free to do what I want.”

This has led experts to analyse his inner thoughts.

Human resource director, Bo Kang Zho, said: “People who want to feel free to do what they want should have just joined the private sector. People in private sector follow a simple rule. Do what you want. If you’re not happy, just leave.”

“No such thing as spend 12 years at one place feeling hampered.”
