Panellists should speak up and get the ball rolling

It is refreshing to hear a panel of academics and former senior civil servants urging more Singaporeans to air their views if they disagree with or oppose the various policies of the Government (Why Singapore needs more naysayers; Feb 25).

Instead of just encouraging others to do it, I hope the members of the panel will get the ball rolling and speak out themselves, not just on safe topics but also on sacred cows.
