National Day Rally bound to invite sharp criticisms

National Day Rally bound to invite sharp criticisms

Haters are going to hate, regardless of what PM Lee talks about.

With several hours left to this year’s National Day Rally where Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is expected to address the nation and soothe their frayed nerves regarding pricey housing and the never ending stream of foreigners, naysayers are sharpening their claws and baring their fangs in anticipation as they prepare to rip him a new one.


Basically, because there are two broad categories of National Day Rally viewers: 1) The haters and 2) people who only care about their own narrow interests.

The main similarity between these two groups? Both sides would be watching with eyes peeled and come out feeling indignant that Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong did not adequately address their concerns or at all and all he does is rehash the same old lines since time immemorial.

And it is an accusation the prime minister can never avoid.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya, said that a leadership style that employs communication in this day and age is setting itself up for failure.

He said: “Not many people except astute political scientists like me will notice this, but the Prime Minister cannot address everyone’s concerns in his speech.”

He continued: “You know why? Because there is not enough time.”

And this is backed up by evidence.

One regular National Day Rally viewer said she does not want to to diss the rally but have to because she is certain the prime minister this year will fail to address her concerns.

Like how all previous prime ministers have failed to do so for as long as she remembers owning a television and being able to tune in to Channel 5.

Seow Char Bor, a 30-year-old woman who also claims she is Tyra Banks, said: “I’ve schizophrenia but I was from the gifted programme. I rear chickens in my flat. I also have kleptomania and I work the graveyard shift. Oh yes, since my husband left me, I’ve become a lesbian. Therefore, the odds that the prime minister will address any one of my concerns as a Singaporean with unique issues, is zero.”

In fact, this lady can fall into a whole new category of her own.
