The Rhetoric

“Politics is a serious process of understanding issues, of making important decisions on issues affecting our future. Politics as an art form — as entertainment — would deflect from that.”

– Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean, Straits Times, 31 Mar 06

The Reality

PAP’s Jurong GRC team dressed up for a costume parade. Dr Ong Chit Chung as a chef, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam as a policeman, Ms Grace Foo as a SIA stewardess, Mr Lim Boon Heng as a contractor and Mdm Halimah Yacob as a doctor.
