Lee family saga is a petty family dispute?

Short Summary of SAGA: LKY wants his house to be demolished but LHL refused and insisted the place to be made a heritage side. First world and elitist problem faced by the Lee family. Did Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang speak up about CECA, white paper and policies affecting singaporeans?

NOPE. More like these elites tio pawn by their kind and now wanna kpkb to seek sympathy from the public. The alleged lack of checks and “abuse of power” was due to not obeying their father’s will of demolishing the house. Nothing to do with policies affecting singaporeans.

How petty can this be? Read more about the Lee family spat here.

    Like that the best, when they have internal conflicts. Sure will resulting in a split, then the oppositions can take the opportunity and get rid of the PAP.

    I am confident that if we put this demolition to a national referendum, many would want it to be preserved as a national heritage museum in memory of our honourable Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

    Look for lots of dirty laundry to be thrown out & displayed for all to see. This is just the beginning of the end for S’pore. S’poreans will not be part of this battle equation which is simply a struggle of ‘will’ between two fractions of political elites. S’poreans will just be collateral damage.
    I believe that this infighting among the Lees will cause deep fractures within the various political elitist blocs. It will be the beginning of a long drawn out process for S’pore civil society. Energies will be concentrated on extracting the biggest attrition on either side. The economy would be ignored in the process of infighting. China would be laughing at S’pore at the infighting amongst the Lee siblings & perhaps further tighten the OBOR noose around S’pore to speed up the process.

    PissPeeMLeeLanLoong needs seat warmer before son Ah Yi mature enuf to take over reins. Swee Swee Keat bestest choice. No threat to LeeLanLoong empire. Super risky to install peoples’ choice Tharman. KeeChiuEunuchSeng also risky but at the other end of the spectrum. PAPShit may lose all.
    LKY held on to power like life itself. He never shared it even with the love of his life, his wife. LeeLanLoong made fatal mistake of succumbing to HoHo charms at early. A case of puss* whipped?

    Many said that familee matters should not be resolved publicly. But familee is no ordinary familee as the deceased had locked out the press and said matter only favourable for the D-son and wife.

    Yes, the political wellbeing of the country is on the decline.

    If there be no positive changes the country would soon be heading for the third world!

    Oh, c’mon! This is no simple matter as a “petty family dispute”. This is an important revelation of the true character and true person of our country’s most powerful leeder. The fact that this is told by his own sibling, it can’t be more true.

    Everyone has been saying that this incompetent leeder of ours is always making use of his pa’s name to boost his status and has also been misusing his power on many important issues especially after his pa’s passing. Now we’re hearing the same from lky’s darling daughter. Who is still the fool not to be convinced?

    Now everyone knows, whatever Committee, whether COI, PE Committee or whatnot that he sets up are all BS, meant for wayang only and to make him appear fair in public.

    He has already chased many sg talents out of our country, now even his own brother is about to be chased out by him too. He’d be most happy to fix and get rid of everyone who oppose him, only the yes-men will be stay and be heavily rewarded.

    Even his own siblings have lost confidence in him and worry for sg, can sgreans still trust him then? Will sg progress with such a leeder in charge of our country?

    Parents have one thing in common. They want the best for their children. The differences lie in whose best ia the refernce for example choosing a spouse. Parents and children may have different criteria, children more so on emotional whike parents are non emotional. Which direction will depend on the relative strength of character. Most end in llet bygone be bygone and accepting the outcome but there are extremes and some untalkable and have to be dressed out esp in the atas area!

    So without knowledge and even with, the close and unrelated circle have also their own agend. Chinese has few sayings that are appropriate

    Every family has their own bitter sutra to chant.
    Blood doesn’t mean rights gets better received by newer generation.
    Blood doesn’t mean entilement to Respect and reverence just as official position does not mean automatic entitlement but more so instead obligated to be more respectful and loyal to those hands that deed it (him/her are for real human}.
    Deeds and rewards are compatible and time dependent not human can decide.
    This is why Chinese has a cliche that it is hard to judeg family deils esp self exhibed atas fsmilies.
    Rumours are sueable and proof of substantiation varies mysteriously!

  • opposition dude:

    It’s a family dispute but one that brings the focus squarely on the PM himself. His insistance on preserving the family home already is a dead giveaway, what with the Founders Memorial to be set up. So what if the dead founder lived in it, it’s just another house.

    Wise up, if he was smart he would have gone all out with all the photographs and video footage of his dad in action, to be played and published at every opportunity that presents itself. Clearly he has shown he isn’t that bright due to his inexperience of handling anything in the real world whilst not being protected by his dad.

    He was from the SAF and we know just how great SAF people can be after all. Witness SMRT and NOL and pay close attention to SPH for the next 5 years, you know the good show is just starting.

    From afar I must say shocking and really sad as well!! How has a country and its leader come to this? Power and authority can do strange things to people. Indeed, Singapore and Singaporeans will just be collateral damage!

    Could it really be JUST all over a will to demolish a residence? Maybe there is more to it.

    Whatever it is, a siege mentality is likely to ensue and greater intolerance will follow with further unintended consequences; a downward spiral of circumstances. Perhaps the ‘end is near…’.

    Perhaps as Old Moon says, a crisis might be a good thing in the end….but not without much pain in between especially for the ordinary folk.

    We’re stuck in a rut with little room for our economy to grow and we’ve alienated foreign allies.

    LHL should appoint a successor quick and leave the country. Find one who can give a written promise he/she won’t prosecute him for any of his wrongdoings. He is no longer fit to lead.

    If lau lee really wanted to demolish his oxley house , he could have jus demolish it before he up lorry and save his children squabbling now.

    Instead, why did he make a Will to say on one hand he wanted it demolished but on the other hand telling the govt if they want to preserve it as a heritage bldg , he doesn’t want it to be opened to public visitors.

    Doubt he wanted it demolished . What megalomaniac dictator does not want something – a heritage bldg.,monument or statue to glorify him? He most likely wanted one but torn by his fear of his haters vandalizing his monument, hence his wish no public visitors allowed

    Lee G00ng L00ng: He has already chased many sg talents out of our country, now even his own brother is about to be chased out by him too.

    Actually, Lee Hsien Yang wanted to migrate to Australia some years ago. There’s actually loads of stories in Sammyboy forum as to the ‘hidden’ reasons why he wanted to migrate to Australia. Go read for yourself.
    Unfortunately, the rumour was that his Aussie PR application form fell on his late father’s desk sent over by the Australian High Commissioner & methinks he got a good scolding from his late dad for even contemplating migrating to Australia. Not good for the family image if LHY were to migrate.
    It was no surprise that this thing came up again! This time around, his dad is not there to stop him.
    Truth is that many sg people (not talents actually, just want to have a better life for themselves & their children) migrate out of choice, not by govt pressure. Go read the article below which was written in 2012 but is not only still relevant today but even more poignant reading it:

    The trigger point may be the dispute about the family home, but I think it goes deeper than that with hints of abuse of power, lack of checks and balances.

    LHY is a pretty low profile down-to-earth guy. I waa in SingTel when he just became CEO. I believe SingTel’s succes is largely due to him and his management style, and his role in resisting pressures from the government to do things that are, in his views, not good for SingTel e.g. hiring untested govt scholars and generals for senior positions.

    There is more to this than just a plain old family squabble!!

    Those of us from the generation know the history of that house know why LKY wanted to demolish the house. There could be things built there which could make N Korean leader or Saddam Husain look more decent.
    This could be a ploy to get rid of the house with sympathy from dafts like you.
    Be careful, be very careful what you wish for… this is a family feud to find the leader of you dafts from the next generation of Lees. Don’t step into this dispute and burn your children’s future, don’t take side. That house need to be preserved for the able future generation to inspect, noway it should be demolished. Understand the real issue of the feud it’s all about who late momma chose to rule you dafts and who the ruling momma wants to. You guys have no part to play here, be careful what you wish for!

    we thought he had truckloads of balls when he announced he was for all Singaporeans before the elections. can you recall him beating his chests, cry father cry mother apologising to fellow Singaporeans to forgive him for his shortcomings and that he would do better? what’s happened in the last 6 months? hike here, increase tax there, and the mother of all taxes, a tax on top of a tax. WTF !

    when he says No, it always turns out to be an emphatic Yes. Would you believe him if he were to announce that his son would not enter politics? Can he or his son Ah Yi change their mind later?

    AS the saga unveiled, innovative producer deduce inspiration for a new wayang. Nepotism is dynasty as some has rightly perceived. So why kpkb and speculate. Be careful there has been, is and will be the truth of water can float a boat which each pssing dynasty was accepted initially but declined rapidly with time until the next dynasty
    stepped in. Nepotism followed but is transient as greed and arrogance piling on egoism incresesd with time and escalated with succession while sense and quality correspondingly declined.
    LKY i
    was held in esteem by woorld leaders as they can’t do what LKY can as Trudeau has bluntly confessed when LKY advised him to up his and his ministers to the same order as LkY himself. Leaders love power and if not for their
    fortune having some believing in cohecks and balances and were careful to build into their Constitution to avoid ruthless eradication of politicoal rivals and freedom of speech and press as in their being adversedly critical and ensuring the independent and nonpartisan status of public institutions. Internation citizenry graded LKY highly only on what they heard of economic progress but when they were wised to:
    the caste system of distribution of the economic gains;
    the workers are eternally chasing the rainbow on fictitious link of pay adjustment to their productivity which is blantantly hinghed on the notion that the gains are not attributable to the workers but to the Ministers and the pack of hungry and greedy plps and the management esp the directors awarded for good plp services;
    the changing aims of the CPF such that most are left with nothing to fend for their retirement and the desperate and frustration of unaffordable medicare;
    the bereft of human dignity and values etc etc
    the immediarevreaction was why no protest but when told if the Govt wants, a party of more than five can be arrested as illegal assembly, the instantaneous reaction is “shits we thought he is such a great guys and hope we have such a leader but if we do have one, he would be dumped in hell”
    So superficially yes internattionally he seems so but those who are wise to what really happen are akso wise not to kaypo.
