He recalls how back when Minister of State Chee Hong Tat was first revealed in the media, he possessed a warm disposition that had disappeared over the years. The same happened to the rest of the throughout their term in office.

He went on to highlight how election after election, PAP introduces well-groomed candidates from senior positions in the SAF or the public sector, moulding them into the political leaders we see today, and the Singaporean political landscape is that much worse for it.
