Popular local blogger Lee Kin Mun, also known as mrbrown, thinks Singapore may be better off with someone like Avengers villain Thanos.
He has tweeted: “No strong enough leader in their ranks, more like. We need Thanos.”
Thanos is the power-hungry, diabolical antagonist in the latest Marvel movie, ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. He is very controlling and rules with an iron fist (literally).
Along with his tweet, mrbrown included a picture of a Straits Times article with the headline, ‘Singapore’s 4G leaders: Forging a team by collaborating’. The picture of the article was of Labour chief Chan Chun Sing, Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat and Education Minister Ong Ye Kung, who are all currently thought of as contenders for Prime Minister.
Those who responded to his tweet did not seem to be in favour of the current three contenders.
mrbrown’s tweet could be interpreted as a call for Singapore’s leaders to step up and be more of a fierce leader like Thanos. Good idea or not?
