Mr Goh has his tongue in his cheek in the interview he gave to the Business Week defending the appointment of Ms Ho Ching. It is insulting to the many many talented Singaporeans to be told that there is no talent outside the Lee family. It is absolute nonsense.
Goh admits that there is some conflict of interest in the appointment. Does he know what that implies? It implies that her loyalty is questionable.
Will Goh and, for that matter, Dhanabalan explain the appointment at a public gathering. I promise Goh that I will be there to question him if he will agree to meet the public.
