Re: Best Speech Ever in a long while - Inderjit
After so many speeches, I am surprised not a single person has pointed out the obvious.
2030 is 17 years away.
Taking our current population, it means that the population cannot exceeded 100k per year.
If you look at the population growth numbers, you see that they exeed 100k all the time. For 2012, the increase was close to 120k.
We are therefore going to hit the 7 miilion mark way before 2030.
At the present growth rate, our population will be between 7.5 million to 8.0 million in 2030. I believe this should be the actual internal planning target. They released an artifically low value to prep the ground and were shocked that even the low number of 6.9 miilion is unacceptable.
Sincere advice to PM Lee - You need to heal the PAP. The only way you can do this is announce your retirement and pave the way for a new leader to take your place.
