Oops, can sue or not?
I'm attracted by PAP MPs.
Dr Lily Neo, one of my favourite, attracts me for the right reason. I respect her for speaking up for the poor and destitute. The exchanges she had with Vivian Balakrishnan and Mrs Yu-Foo [link] show the shit end of the stick that she has to hold whenever she works in Parliament to protect the interests of lesser mortals of Singapore.
Lee Bee Wah is another of my 'favourite', for a different reason though. She reminds me of Feminist Mentor, Thio Su Mien of Page 73 [link]
"When asked why Liu Guodong was not nominated, STTA president Lee Bee Wah said: "Results are not the only criterion to STTA. A Coach of the Year has to be a professional, have integrity, be able to gel the team, and is well respected by all his players." so wrote ST May 6 2009.
Folks from PAP (who like to talk down and dumb down it's lesser mortals but idolise their chiefs) are never known for their graciousness. However, to purposely hurt someone out of spite, to kick someone on the balls after breaking both his legs is not a very nice thing to do. Not nice at all. As much as the MM and PM lament that Singapore is not a gracious society, with example like this by Mdm President, it'll take eons for Singapore to be one.
I may be reading too 'cheem' (deep) but is Mdm President saying that Coach Liu is not a professional and does not have integrity?Mama mia! Is there a case of defamation of character here?
Will there be work for judges in Singapore courts soon? I hope the kangaroos stay in the zoo and not get involve this time!
Sue or no sue, with such a serious comment by Mdm President, I think somebody is going to get hurt.
Somebody is going to get hurt real bad!
Unless he has power backing and the material influence, I think it's tough for Coach Liu to sue. If he sues, he may 'sue' (as in Hokkien - 'lose')
Being the calibre of a coach that he is, I'm sure he's got better thing to do than sue. I bet he is busy training his Indonesian paddlers for the Main Event. He will prove his worth by having his Indonesian paddlers beat the crap out of Li Jia Wei & Co. With that, the Singapore Coach of the Year won't mean squat to him.
That'll be the day that Jia Wei's ex-boyfriend Ronald Susilo would love to see too!
That'll be the day!
