    Default With Influence, Comes Responsibility by Yaw Shin Leong

    by Yaw Shin Leong on Sunday, 15 January 2012 at 23:26

    In the Straits Times yesterday, there was a special report titled ‘The Social Politician’. (Part D, Saturday, 14th January 2012). I read through the report and was a little surprised to find myself listed in all the eight categories. The eight categories & my respective rankings were:

    1) Top 10 MPs who generated the most buzz on social media - 3rd Place

    2) Top 10 MPs in terms of audience size on Facebook and Twitter - 2nd Place

    3) Top 10 MPs who post most frequently on Facebook - 4th Place

    4) Top 10 MPs who leave the most number of comments on FB wall - 3rd Place

    5) MPs who got the most number of comments from Netizens - 6th Place

    6) MPs who use social media most effectively are - 3rd Place (Joint)

    7) Buzz per output ranking - 7th Place

    8) Top 10 MPs in terms of share of positive comments out of all comments received - 4th Place

    While these rankings don’t mean much to me and will not change the way how I interact with Singaporeans both online or offline, still understanding these categories and rankings means that every single word and action from me does have an influence to a varying degree, at least via the social media!



    Of course we remember Uncle Ben Parker (from Spiderman) who said ‘With great power comes great responsibility’. As such I would like to take this opportunity to leverage upon the little influence I have to share some responsible words of encouragements with my fellow younger Singaporeans.

    In life, we are unique beings and we must have purpose-driven convictions. Strong purpose driven convictions are the inextinguishable fuel that propels our passion.

    Since we are imperfect beings, we must have the courage to admit mistakes. For the courage to admit mistakes, to apologize and to take corrective actions are the hallmarks of personal leadership.



    If you have a passion for something, find out the reasons behind that something. Talk to your friends and loved ones, if those reasons are worthy. Pursue your passion with deep convictions unceasingly until success is to come.

    Likewise, if you think you have made mistakes, talk to your friends and loved ones, even if those are serious mistakes, acknowledge them. Do not attempt to cover one mistake with another. Two wrongs do not make one right. Acknowledge them, take corrective actions and reconcile yourself with those around you.



    Guess the above were too philosophical for the night. I will stop here and I better do so. This is because similar to my fellow WP MPs I’m also in the midst of finalizing my parliamentary speech on ministerial salaries for this week's sitting!

    Hougang MP Yaw Shin Leong drops out of sight
    He cancelled MPS and hasn't visited town council office

    http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking...ry_760301.html

    Mr Yaw has been uncontactable since news broke about an alleged affair with a married WP member.By Andrea Ong
    Hougang MP Yaw Shin Leong has disappeared from the public eye this week amid growing speculation about his personal life.

    Since news surfaced last Friday about his alleged extramarital affair with a married woman from his Workers' Party (WP), the 35-year-old MP has been a no-show at his weekly Meet-the-People session (MPS) and his town council office.

    He also could not be contacted by phone, e-mail or at his home.

    His fellow party members have also closed ranks, keeping mum about the allegations.



    all of you idiots who zap me since 21 Jan, owe me an apology and need to up me back.... if you have balls in the 1st place

    Ramseth's English and law training served him well. He only said no evidence so far. But Ram will burn with YSL when evidence is found and justice is done.

    Mr Yaw SL should break the silence, come out and explain.


    Over-protection in taiwan had destroyed Chen Sui Bian.

    Over-gratitute in singapore (by our senior citizens in 60's - 80's) towards PAP had lead to today's problem in singapore.


    No, we should not and could not afford to over protect any of our politician, whether PAP or oppositions.

    if he had opened a conference and admit his wrongdoings in the first place, he wont end up having his political career cut short. besides, he could still hide whatever secrets he have, no need fear of them being dig out. but he kept quiet, and soon a few more women came out of nowhere, like the tuition teacher etc
