I REFER to Sharon Vasoo's interview with MP Peh
Chin Hua, "Peh: I have no apologies for what I am." (ST,
I am surprised he has been described as old-fashioned
and uptight. I believe the man has his ears to the ground; there
are no ivory towers for him.
The issues he has raised in Parliament show he
is one of the rare few who know what is really going on and, more
importantly, he is a person who is not afraid to tell the truth.
It must be comforting for many parents and educators
to know there is a voice out there for them.
We should have more MPs like him, who are
willing to try and set things right, or else the next generation
will not be able to stay ahead of the competition and carry on the
superb work that has led Singapore to where she is today.
