The mishandling by the Ministry of Health regarding the issue of liver transplant and the Slim-10 distributors is a very good and valid issue for the SDP to raise. This matter epitomizes the failure of an insensitive and inhumane system that we have to live with, a matter that most Singaporeans can identify with.
I suggest that the SDP approach the families involved, make enquiries to the Ministry (albeit without much effect) and represent the families to seek redress on the matter. This will be a good for the party and, though most Singaporeans are forgetful, it may have positive residual effect on the electorate in 2006.
