Handling their job well

William Sam asked:
Which current minister is the worst performing one in your view? Which opposition MP has the ability to do a better job than that minister?

REPLY:
The best performing minister is Khaw Boon Wan. He is tacking the housing problem effectively by increasing the supply of HDB flats and also making it affordable through higher grants from the Government.

The worst performing minister is the one in charge of Home Affairs. He is not addressing the problem of rising crime rates and scams. This is the primary duty of the Police.

Many MPs, PAP or opposition, can do the job of a minister. It does not require a super talent. It only needs someone who is in touch with the problem and use common sense to solve it. Look at the example of the Governor of Jakarta, which is reported here:

Retired top Civil Servant Ngiam put up an article, spot lighting the state of our present Govt, thoughts that echo what we have been talking all along.
None of the Cabinet members gathered by PM Lee, is worth appraising, all completely fail the bar test.
The critical point is, the Elite clique is so well paid in monetary terms, that none would want to commit political suicide by voicing out contrary views to PM's solitary ones, allowing him the sole power to set the tone for the country. This is the real danger to Singapore's future survival, all in the hands of one sole person, like having no checking mechanism for errors. Humans are not God, they make mistakes.

On 4 September, my wheel chair bounded father visited Medical Social Service at a Polyclinic with doctor's referral letter.
He requests to admit a subsidised nursing home. Before formal mean test, MSW tell my family to go JB !
After mean test, MSW again recommends to go JB !

Which formal minister tell its CITIZEN to retire in JB?

I don't consider $8 Cow to be best performing minister. When handed a shitty mess as in low supply, is easier to improve things by raising supply.

Best performing minister is finance minister. How else to explain the flood of foreigners swarming into Hotel SG to earn S$?

Once earn enough S$ from Hotel SG can go elsewhere.
