My daughter reading her mom's copy of "Yes, Prime Minister" just showed me this. Doesn't it appeared like it could very well be a template the government had lived by in the Orchard Road flooding? Our hue and cry got them to Stage Five, which is of course not in the script!
Our PM had suggested that his government isn't like this BBC political comedy. You believe him? May be it is the exception now, but if he doesn't tighten up on all of them it will grow to become the norm. Indeed our government is becoming more and more like elsewhere. This is clearly not in our interest.
A few days ago, we got to Stage Six: "I am sorry". Great, let's see how often you have to get this point going forward.
So my hunch about all these is not that far of after all. I had blogged about this earlier.
As I kid, we never lampooned the government. There were no opportunities or desire. Never imagined we are living down to this now.
