Wasting Ministers' Time

Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Vivian Balakrishnan officiated at the opening of Punggol and Serangoon reservoirs on 3 July 2011.

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean was also present.

I am surprised that someone considered it necessary to involve even one cabinet minister in such an event — or non-event, which it really was.  If neither of the ministers had more important or better things to do, perhaps they should have spent their Sunday with their families or friends.
