How will LKY’s last will (demolition clause) be like if he was a layman?How will LKY’s last will (demolition clause) be like if... Will LKY make the demolition clause in the below manner? I and my bor want my house at 38 Oxley Road Singapore 238629 be demolished after I mati. If my zhar bor gia wants to stay there, then let her stay first, demolish later. I also double confirm and ask all my gia to demolish the house. If the garmen of the day...

Is ‘Ownself check ownself’ a lie?Is ‘Ownself check ownself’ a lie? Emeritus Senior Minister Goh said during the GE2015 that “We are our own checks”. Thus far, from the entire Lee family saga, it does not seem that the PAP government is capable of serving as an effective check and balance on itself. Minister after minister have spoken out in turn to defend PM Lee vigorously – ESM...

Lee Hsien Yang: Offer to build memorial garden rejectedLee Hsien Yang: Offer to build memorial garden rejected SMS Indranee Rajah asks "Why is the government being asked to demolish the house now?" We have never asked the Government to allow us to demolish the house now, only after Wei Ling's departure. In turn, we ask "Why was a secret committee on the house formed in 2016?" On 13 April 2015, PM Lee stated that since Wei Ling...

It is inarguable that LKY wanted his house to be demolishedIt is inarguable that LKY wanted his house to be demolished There have been recent PAP efforts to cast doubt on what was LKY’s true intention regarding his house at 38 Oxley Road. They have also tried to dispute whether LKY truly knew what he was signing when he signed his Final Will on 17 Dec 2013. I strongly believe that these efforts are both desperate and disingenuous....

Sycophants out to support Lee Hsien LoongSycophants out to support Lee Hsien Loong So obvious. LHL's ministers are now putting up a concerted n co-ordinated effort to desperately turn the table such that it looks like LHY n LWL are in fact the main wrongdoing culprits who have the conspired intention to defame their brother, LHL. I am just wondering why the ministers keep on harping on the clause...

Re-evaluate Sungei Road market closureRe-evaluate Sungei Road market closure If there is one thing about the preservation of heritage that we learn from the entire Lee family home at Oxley Road saga, it is that government leaders recognize that the only way to truly preserve a place’s heritage and history is to preserve the entire building. An exhibition that exhibited a few of Lee Kwan Yew’s...

LHY entraps LHL in a lose-lose situationLHY entraps LHL in a lose-lose situation Brilliant. This put LYL in a lose-lose-lose situation. Sue the siblings and then be denounced by the public as a ruthless Monster who would even bring his own flesh and blood to court. Plus this would further inflame the situation. Don't sue and be asked to leave cabinet as there would be lingering suspicions of his...

34 questions for Parliament on 3 July?34 questions for Parliament on 3 July? I refer to the article “Oxley Road dispute: House debate will clear the air, say MPs and political watchers” (Straits Times, Jun 20). It states that “Putting the issue under scrutiny in the House will allow the Government to address in public the serious allegations about abuse of power that have been made by Dr...

Stop mollycodding the famiLEEStop mollycodding the famiLEE Why PAP die die cannot let LKY's house be demolished? Is it because it is the birthplace of the PAP? The PAP was conceptualized by LKY and his friends in the basement of that house in 1954. The founding fathers used to hold regular meetings there and discussed ways to attain independence for Singapore. But that...

Another PAP MP have been activated to speak out about the Oxley Road saga. This time, it is Senior Minister of State for Law Indranee Rajah, who is also MP for the Tanjong Pagar Constituency, of which the late LKY had such an important role in. In her Facebook post, Ms Indranee explained that based on MM Lee's last...

Lee Hsien Loong betrays Asian value of filial pietyLee Hsien Loong betrays Asian value of filial piety By defying his late father's wish to have his house demolished and twisting his words, Lee Hsien Loong is betraying the very important value of filial piety in Asian society. And ironically, filial piety is central to Confucianism which his late father tried to use as a cloak to legitimise his authoritarian rule. His...

It states that: “Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s final will specifically accepts and acknowledges that demolition of his Oxley Road house...

Ho Ching speaks for the first timeHo Ching speaks for the first time The next salvo in the ongoing saga is now fired by none other than Ho Ching herself. Seems like every night someone from the famiLEE are saying something or another, only for the person to refute and allege something else, and on and on it continues. Ho Ching had thus far remained quiet, but a week after this feud broke,...

DPM Teo Chee Hean has a direct line to LKY in the netherworld?DPM Teo Chee Hean has a direct line to LKY in the netherworld? Despite Lee Kuan Yew (LKY) having repeatedly and openly stated that he wanted the house to be demolished, Teo believes that LKY would now be amenable to preserving it. Now, imagine this: if these PAP ministers can claim to speak for LKY after his death and defy his wish to perpetrate the Party's interests, how much...
