According to The Straits Times, Mr.Goh Chok Tong said, "The four men seem to be leaving it to the young lady to campaign and say all the things.” He was speaking of Ms.Nicole Seah in Marine Parade.
Precisely what is wrong with Ms.Seah taking the lead? Does it bother Mr.Goh that she is a woman taking the lead? Does he feel that she should meekly follow? Or does he perhaps feel that she belongs in some kitchen?
Ms.Seah is intelligent, she is articulate and she has a huge following on Facebook, more than Mr.Goh certainly. If she speaks, it is because people are interested in what she has to say.
Mr.Goh should take his own advice, and focus on the issues, instead of taking cheap and possibly chauvinistic shots, at oppositionists.
