Singapore: All Talk, No Action

Lionel is irritated with armchair politicians – the people who find it easy to complain but shy away when it comes to doing something. “I'm sure you have encountered your fair share of the Singapore armchair politician: standing on a pedestal on an ivory tower and espousing nuggets of information that he (and probably only himself) thinks that is wisdom. Then they start condemning everyone including the kitchen sink, but when you ask them what they intend to do about it, they either go strangely silent or they go on the defensive and adopt a defeatist attitude.”
