You Need A Boat To Make A Point

Zam: Dr M should have emulated Kuan Yew - Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad would have fared better if he had remained in the Cabinet as a mentor minister like Singapore’s former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew. Information Minister Datuk Zainuddin Maidin said it was too late now as “he has missed the boat.” (The Star, 6th Sept 2006)

Missed the boat? I believe everyone should have their fair share to comment on the issues, especially when it concerns our country, livelihood and future generations. You don't have to be in the boat to give your comments, and of cos if you are in the boat, it will be easier to do so, since everyone in the boat would like to keep it afloat.

A second thought that crosses my mind, even if Dr. Mahathir has chosen to be mentor minister, does it mean that he is in the boat? or probably still out of the boat, depending on who he is siding with? "Boat" is surely a bad term to use in this case, since it's interpretation is so subjective. Anyway, I believe there are a lot of people is willing to jump into the "boat", since the prospects do look good in a way.

Make sure you don't board the wrong sampan, you need a boat to make a point.
