The Online Citizen’s Andrew Loh catches up with PAP MP Michael Palmer at the side of the NUS forum last Wednesday.

Mr Michael Palmer called his grassroots leaders immediately upon reading about Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew’s controversial remarks about the Malay Muslim community. As their Member of Parliament, he wanted to reassure them that he did not share MM Lee’s views.

“When MM said that,” Mr Palmer tells The Online Citizen (TOC), referring to MM Lee’s comments in his book, “my initial reaction was, what’s he talking about? I have Malay friends, Muslim friends. I have Malay friends and volunteers in the constituency. We all eat together, there has never been any problems.”
