It should not be a Q&A

I think it’s good that ST’s Singapolitics is taking trying to play a part in the National Conversation by funnelling questions to the PM.

Now it’s asking people to vote for the top questions that people want answered.
My problem is this: Why are we insisting that PM answers the questions? Why do we always assume that the G has the answers? A far better approach methinks is to get as many people as possible to state their views, proposals, problems etc on the top five questions or so – and then collate them for all to see. The PM can then look them over and comment on them.
We really have GOT to get away from thinking the G is God. This is a conversation, not a Q&A session.
