It had to happen sooner or later!

filed under: Department of the Exasperated

Finally, our MPs proclaim in Parliament that the tsunami disaster bonded Singaporeans together.

It does seem that any trivial incident (young child wanders from home for less than 2 days), huge disaster, major triumph (Sunday's football victory), or withering defeat (table tennis and badminton imports fail to win medals) - in short, just about ANYTHING - will inevitably lead to one or more of our enlightened leaders proclaiming increased social cohesion among Singaporeans.

Is that what we're paying our taxes for? Insincere pithy plaitudes that seem to be crafted from a template?
