WOTC - Tan Chuan Jin

I asked this question in the Wisdom of the Crowd:

Why is Tan Chuan Jin quite popular among the younger leaders?

Here are the responses: (36 Votes)
56 % - He is only better than the other ministers who are disliked by the public.
28 % - He is more approachable and compassionate and in touch with the ground.
11 % - People sympathise with him for losing a ministerial post.
6 % - He does his job as Speaker of Parliament well

If my memory dun fail, Tan is the only PAP member of the Cabinet who voiced out Parliament is not the stage to settle the Lee family dispute, and this kay poh got demoted from a highly paid Minister to just a Speaker of Parliament, along with a huge hair cut in pay.
Should follow the SOP of his PAP colleagues, keep gap shut and be obedient in Parliament.
Also heard he's quite popular and likeable on the ground, mixing easily with ordinary people, with no usual pretense of his other PAP colleagues.
One PAP member to keep on our radar screen.
