Ok la. Give the Ex-navy Chief some time. Our RSN has a lot of experience dealing with foreign navies.

I just hope he looks into the flawed COE and ERP systems. Good riddance to the outgoing one.

MBT should stay back to clear his own mess with his new appointment as dy to National Development Minister.
remember the last crisis in 1996 when hdb 4room in central is about 400k and yr 2002 at about 350k, but now, yr 2011 a 4room hdb can go about 600k. asking yourself, did your pay increases that much....
and your dear MBT said is market demand and not bubble ;(

I have faith in Khaw Boon Wan.
The right person for a very tough job.

He will probably have to dismantle the current HDB system & somehow put it back together again to achieve its main objective... affordable public housing for the masses.
Like what he did to our health care system.
