Don’t just cry, Minister Lim — Do something about it: Mr Lim cited two campaigns which he fought very hard for

“The IRs is one good example where we had a very intense debate. But in the end, it was not that we overruled Lim Boon Heng …. if you remember, when we discussed this in Parliament in 2005, Boon Heng made a speech in Parliament, and it was a powerful speech and he made it with a lot of passion and emotion. He said, ‘I was against IRs but when I looked at the case and what the IRs could bring to us, in the end, I could not say no to 25,000 or 30,000 jobs’. That was what made him emotional — that he had to make a choice and he had to decide in the end what is in the interest of Singapore.”
