I’m pretty sure most of you heard that Tin Pei Ling posted a message on her Facebook during Cooling Off Day.
You might also have read her explanation. According to her, the message was posted by her administrators, Ms Denise He, by accident.
I know some of you are saying there’s no such person. Tin Pei Ling’s filing to Elections Department states that she is the only administrator for the Facebook page. Ms Denise He’s name wasn’t mentioned at all. A lot of people are saying that NSP should file a police report so that Elections Department can investigate into this case.
Honestly, I don’t really care. I assume that Tin Pei Ling is speaking the truth infront of media and that the mistake is really made by her administrator, Ms Denise He. I don’t care if Elections Department is going to take actions against Tin Pei Ling or not. It’s not a big deal. The punishment for not observing Cooling Off Day is just a small fine and imprisonment. Since it wasn’t done on purpose, I don’t think the judge will impose imprisonment. It will just be a fine. I’m pretty sure Tin Pei Ling can afford that.
But what pisses me off is the way Tin Pei Ling handled this whole issue. The administrator of the Facebook page is under her charge. Whatever mistakes her subordinate made is also considered her mistake. That is because she is the one who appointed the person as the administrator. She should be responsible for her subordinate’s error.
But no. Tin Pei Ling did not accept responsibility for the mistake made by her subordinate. All the blame is on Ms Denise He. Tin Pei Ling didn’t even bother to apologise on her subordinate’s behalf. Not only that, I find it distasteful when she revealed the administrator’s name to the media. Totally uncalled for. I feel sorry for Ms Denise He. When Tin Pei Ling succeed, she don’t get much credit. When there’s a mistake, she is the one who takes full responsibility instead of Tin Pei Ling. Disappointing.
Is this the so call 4G leaders?
FYI, there is a petition on going to remove Tin Pei Ling as Member of Parliament. I didn’t sign. Personally I think even if we get the entire Singapore to sign that petition, she will still be a MP. Instead of wasting our time and effort, why not just sit back, relax and see what other entertainment can she provide.
