    WKS the name synonymous with Ms Selamat was a school teacher, a HR supervisor, a flash-in-the-pan Foreign Minister, and from the grapevine politically connected. Stood beside TPLing as the most unpopular candidates and certainly costs PAP many votes. In GE people vote their resentment against something..in GE 2011 WKS was that something.
    Yet PM Lee has resuscitated this man of questionable ability; the most unpopular in our political history, and without any grounding in economics, as his Economic Advisor..a most unnatural post for WKS. Surely this is an act of provocation and demonstrably a failure of PM Lee to recognise the resentments of the people and raises the assumption that his post-election promise to heed the voices of the people was mere rhetoric, thus in him we are now losing faith.
    Inexorably, we can only imagine that the resuscitation of WKS is due to serious internal schism within the PAP. The only plausible purpose in WKS has to be his doggy loyalty to be on PM side.
