The Utterly Amazing Logic of GRCs

I refer you to Mr Wang Say So's entry entitled On the GRC System. In it, he spoke about a newspaper article in which Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong justifies the GRC system.

The logic goes that the GRC system is necessary so that the talented PAP candidates are ensured (or at least have higher chances of getting) a seat in parliament, so that they will not risk their successful personal careers.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out the glaring flaw in his argument. If you still can't see it, why not head for Mr Wang's entry to read it yourself?

Anyway, reading the quote from SM Goh,

helping us to recruit younger and capable candidates with the potential to become ministers

Actually, to fulfill this, why not abolish the GRC system? Then, these younger and capable Singaporeans can join the opposition, win a seat in parliament, and become a wonderful minster! How brilliant of me! Maybe I can be senior minister too! On second thoughts, maybe not. The SM seat smells of peanut. I don't really like peanuts.

You should check out Mr Brown's latest podcast on this issue. Quite funny.

Heh ya, it's a fine piece of satire alright. Nonetheless, I still find the Bak Chor Mee man funnier.
