Once again the media has pitted Tin Pei Ling against Nicole Seah.
Allow me to add one more phrase to the earlier mentioned "No Horse Run".
Smell No Smoke.
One we have a robotic speech executed in a level of Mandarin that would have awed Goh Chok Tong to the floor. Ok fine. So it wasn't a very high bar to begin with.
Then, we have the other stealing the show with a passionate speech that captured the silent attention of the audience.
Were both rehearsed and scripted? Most definitely yes.
But only one put in the effort to execute it nicely.
Can you guess which one?
p.s. As much as you can see how the crowd is responding to the NSP in contrast to the PAP, my greatest fear is perhaps that they do not translate to valid and effective votes.
Even when I am not a voter in the Marine Parade GRC, I would be just as gutted if we do not get such talented potential in Parliament representing and serving the people.
