THARMAN OVER CHAN CHUN SING FOR S’PORE’S NEXT PRIME MINISTER?

DPM and Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam has proven that he can hold his own against hard-nosed interviewers, most recently BBC's Stephen Sackur. Perhaps for fear of getting sued himself, Mr. Sackur withheld his harshest criticisms and instead chuckled as the DPM went on with his rant on how necessary it is for the PAP regime to be intrusive into Singaporean's lives so as to build a better and culturally diverse society.
