Making Life Easier for The Elderly - Revisited after MM Lee & SM Goh's resignations from the Cabinet

Now that both MM Lee and SM Goh had announced that they would step down from the Cabinet, what should they do? I believe the answer is best contained in my article posting on 15 Dec 2010, "Election Watch Part II - Concepts About Aging - Nanjing YY Li vs Singapore MM Lee".


MM Lee at the old age of 87, said this during a recent constituency event; “If I'm fit, I'm prepared to stand. But whether I stand or not, that's up to the Prime Minister”. Asked if he was feeling up to it, Mr Lee chuckled and would only say: 'It's for you to judge.' [ Source : Straits Times, 14 Nov 2010 ]
SM Goh announced that the Government is carrying out a 5-year study in Marine Parade to assess the implications and needs of an ageing community. He said the elderly are a special group, and Singapore need more young people to engage older Singaporeans to help them grow old graciously ….. but “in a cost effective way”.

"will a fall of Aljunied GRC to the WP be "the last leaf falling" for MM Lee?"

With two would be 4G likely Prime Ministers under-studying them in their GRCs and the support of none other than Ms Tin Pei Ling, who is so keen to help the Aged,  they can jointly change the "Concepts about Aging" in Singapore and make Marine Parade the model GRC for our Aging population.
