HARDtalk CAN'Ttalk

Transcribed below is the recent interview of Tim Sebastian with PM Goh. Very select extracts have appeared in the Singaporean press, so I have decided to make it available here so that you can read the less glowing parts of the interview.

If the Singaporean education system has made you so dependent on being spoon-fed you can watch a video stream of the interview below the transcript.

The Hardtalk interview should be a beacon to all Singaporean journalists. Surely you remember the passion and excitement of a real political interview.

Why did you become a journalist in the first place? Don't tell me you thought it would be a secure profession with a regular and dependable salary.
