what LHL said does not gel with what he or his kakis do in parliament and in public !!! Just look at all the negative comments from the original post on a Government official website. As a ST Forumer Patrick Liew has pointed out that “to have constructive, we need to have constructive politicians” first, Here are the examples Askmelah can think of.

At the Parliament Debate on the President’s Address yesterday (28 May), Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong emphasized that politics should be about Singaporeans’ lives and Singapore’s future.
Stressing that it is vital for Singapore to get its politics right, Mr Lee said that constructive politics will help the country scale new heights, but “wrong politics will doom it”.
Secondly, putting forward capable individuals of integrity and character to be Ministers and Members of Parliament is also important. Mr Lee said, “Institutions are important, yes. But equally critical is the quality of the ministers and the MPs and of those who aspire to be ministers and MPs.”
WHAT INDERJIT SINGH AND TIN PEI LING SAID IN PARLIAMENT, OPPOSITION MPS RAISED BEFORE]
1. Why didn’t PAP have Constructive Politics 5 or 7 years ago?
2. Why demand others to clap hands with you?
3. If you want Opposition to help you, then pay them equivalent salary with full access to government data and stats.
4. Opposition is not your Ministers and not reporting to you.
5. 40% only voted for Opposition to slap the co-driver.
