I read last Sunday's report, 'Recovering from stroke but Chiam is sharp and lucid', and am very surprised that in spite of his poor health, Mr Chiam See Tong is still performing his duty as a Member of Parliament for his Potong Pasir constituency.
I would have expected him to call it a day, not out of disrespect but rather out of sympathy after seeing him in such a state as shown in The Sunday Times photographs.
Mr Chiam has served his constituency for a very long time and has even become a legendary figure in the ward.
