"Out of touch" politician is a lost cause: Sitoh Yih Pin
POSTED: 03 Mar 2014 08:00
Potong Pasir MP Sitoh Yih Pin described an "out of touch" politician. The label gives the impression that one is lacking in empathy and is a euphemism for elitism. Once a politician is seen to be elitist and lacking in empathy, people cannot see themselves having an engaging relationship with him which is based on mutual understanding and respect.
