I am not a political blogger, but I just had to post this video of the recent political debate between parties, as I was so very impressed by Vincent, who is a social worker by profession. Didn’t catch the televised debate so I am glad there’s YouTube.
I was not there, but I wanted to applaud him. From the clip I just saw, it was great how the debate between Tharman Shanmugaratnam and Vincent Wijeysingha was decent with no mud slinging. Dignified. This is the way it should be and I would be thrilled for a lot more debate like this, all year round. It’s heartwarming to know we have someone who is the voice of the marginalized. Who actually goes out there, talks to the people and cares. When it comes to civic duty I pale in comparison.
I look for humility in a candidate it’s a quality that is highly underrated in Singapore. Another reason I was impressed. Arrogance totally puts me off.
Since Singapore is now filled with election fever, let me just put this out there. Humility, compassion and kindness gets my vote. What are the values you look for?
