Newspaper columnist Wilson Lee, one of the founders of the Anvil Business Club, said like the famous leader who transformed Singapore into an economic superpower, he believes Mr. [Benigno "Noynoy"] Aquino [President of the Philippines] could do the same feat to the Philippines.
“President 'Noy' is just like Lee Kuan Yew who is incorruptible and led his country from poverty to prosperity,” he said.
Forgetting for a moment the mounting evidence of nepotism that is hobbling the Second Aquino Administration, being "incorruptible" alone is not enough to make one even remotely comparable to the venerable Singaporean statesman. Just ask Noynoy. Since taking office (or even since he proclaimed himself the silver bullet in the war against Pinoy evil), has he articulated how he envisions what the Philippines might be like come 2016?
