National Day Rally 

In his maiden National Day Rally speech yesterday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong spent over three hours outlining his plans for the nation. In a sign that he is a man in a hurry, his speech covered a wide range of topics and mentioned a number of initiatives, many of them bold, and some – apparently emphasising his point about the need to be ready to change — even reversing his own earlier policies (see “A speech for all Singaporeans: Fresh and bold initiatives in PM Lee’s first rally”).
