ST Forum Feb 27, 2007Stop right there and think. Think of all the family members you love most. Your mother. Your father. Your spouse. Your children. Your siblings. Your grandparents, aunties, uncles etc.
I found PM Lee's Chinese New Year message very timely and meaningful.
He wisely reminded Singaporeans that they should work hard to keep the family unit strong and healthy. I cannot agree more. Through the family, we find love, support and fulfilment. When we face difficult times, it is the family that we turn to for comfort.
I am happy that PM Lee has pledged that the government will continue to do its best to foster strong family ties ........

Now, Mr Wang invites you to answer the following questions.
What has the Singapore government EVER done to "foster strong family ties" between you and your mother? You and your father? How about your spouse, your children, your siblings ...?
The Straits Times publishes very strange letters.
But then, we have a Prime Minister who claims that if he gave money to your family, it would break down. Suddenly, you would divorce your wife, disown your parents or something like that.
Ah, the mysteries of life in Singapore.
