I would like to start by congratulating all the speakers who have spoken yesterday and up to before the break. After listening to Professor Furmston’s welcome address, the Minister’s keynote speech defending robustly Singapore’s practical conception of the ‘rule of law’, Professor Tamanaha’s magisterial lecture, Professor Weiler’s passionate defence of a ‘rule of law’ that must incorporate the values of democracy and human rights and the Attorney-General and Justice Rajah’s moderation of the views of the experts on their respective panels, I have to say that the better part of the symposium is probably over, with apologies to the panellists and speakers coming later. So I will liven up my lecture by referring to the ‘rule of law’ news in The Straits Times this morning.
