This is how PM Lee Hsien Loong appraises ministers

“So Singaporeans have to evaluate ministers fairly, and they have to take into account both the contributions and the shortcomings. And you have to look at it objectively and holistically because quite often, contributions may be silent but when something goes wrong, it goes wrong with a bang. And we must try and keep that in perspective.” “If ministers make mistakes, then of course, they must take responsibility and put things right. We cannot expect ministers never to make mistakes or never to have mistakes happen on their watch in their ministries. It is not possible — this is a very big organisation and it is a very complicated world, and even with the best intent in the world, from time to time, things will go wrong. And when things go wrong, you have to put them right. And if it is your responsibility, you have done it wrong, then you apologise and you answer for it.”
