Statement by son of Lee Hsien Yang

Li ShengWu, the son of Lee Hsien Yang, the younger brother of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, has joined in the fray by publicly denouncing his elder uncle PM Lee online.

Shortly after his father and aunt posted their statement on PM Lee, Li wrote:

I generally avoid commenting on Singapore politics, but this is an exception.

In the last few years, my immediate family has become increasingly worried about the lack of checks on abuse of power. The situation is now such that my parents have made plans to relocate to another country, a painful decision that they have not made lightly. The details are below.

Link to statement by Dr Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang here.

When a friend asked him why the matter was not in the news in Singapore, ShengWu said: “Because the Singapore news is heavily controlled by the government. I’m in a position to know.”

Li ShengWu, 32, has a PhD from Stanford University.

    While the basis of the disagreement relates to the private property of the old fart–now long dead–Li’s message is about the lack of checks and balances against an abuse of power.

    If they feel that way–just imagine how the ordinary citizens of Singapore feel–almost all their lives. It is time to wake up.

    As for the private property–there really should not be any decision to be made by the siblings. The old fart wanted the property demolished and that is that. While we may lament the distruction it is what he wanted–so it should be carried out.

    As I mentioned in one earlier comment–the clown has a nasty streak–even his siblings are not exempted from his ego.

    All this tells me that he should go and take the PAP with him.

    Ha-ha-ha-ha! If Lee Hsien Yang has guts & courage – he would fight his brother at the ballot box to see whose the worthy successor of LKY! The fact that he’s running away show him as a QUITTER! Hsien Yang doesn’t seemed to have a rigid backbone but rather is a jellyfish!
    GCT called S’poreans whom had migrated QUITTERS but such S’poreans don’t have the political arsenal, the vast monies nor the political influence to fight against the PAP & against the status quo. Leaving S’pore was the only logical solution for them to have a better life.
    But Lee Hsien Yang has the money, the resources & at least some political influence to contest against his own brother! He had generated immense wealth over the last decade as a result of his political connections. At least he owes all S’poreans to put up a better fight against his own brother – he benefited immensely from the political system put up by his late father.
    Roy Ngerng had more courage than Hsien Yang putting up a courageous fight on CPF against tyrant PM LHL. He even outsmarted PM LHL by crowdfunding his legal fees in his legal battle against PM LHL. Even Amos Yee showed to the world how repressive S’pore & PM LHL was in the eyes of democratic govts. He had the guts to take on the repressive S’pore legal & criminal system.
    But Hsien Yang is a jellyfish who want to run away from his own brother’s system. He couldn’t stomach the same type of repression suffered by others – the late JBJ, Chee Soon Juan, Roy Ngerng, Amos Yee, etc. He’s a coward by my perspective!

    SINKIELAND is in a TORRID MESS – politically, economically and socially. I blame this sorry state squarely on the daft 70% voters who are either

    - too stupid to know they are stupid or

    - too stupid to even start to discover they are stupid.

    AND THERE ARE STILL A GOOD PORTION WHO REFUSED TO WAKE UP believing the FAKE NEWS FEED from PAPpys and those in alignment cronies.

    When the political castle is incinerated or collapsed from an earthquake shake, property values nationwide will shrink to zero faster than the lease term of 99-years whether that is HDB or private.

    I am watching an earthquake unfolding going at 12 plus Ritcher scale measure – the Sichuan earthquake that hit China a few years ago was of less violent tremor measure.

    SINKIELAND is in a TORRID MESS – politically, economically and socially.

    This is CIVIL WAR! Even if PM LHL holds the balance of power in his hands, there will be some political elites who would side with Dr Lee Wei Ling & Lee Hsien Yang. And the political elites are treacherous & full of surprises.
    The political pathway for PM LHL & his wife HC is now being set & strewn with hidden pitfalls & political landmines. When the siblings announced PM LHL & HC’s agenda for plotting the ascendancy of their son, Li Hongyi to the throne, it sets out their basis for opposing PM LHL.
    And this is not good for S’pore! Both sides will now try to extract the biggest attrition from either side. This war is not being fought on preserving LKY values but rather to stop either side from advancing further to achieving full power. It is pure political power play! The battle lines will be drawn across fault lines & don’t underestimate both Dr Lee Wei Ling & Lee Hsien Yang – both siblings are just as dangerous as their brother PM LHL. In fact, they as possible opposition figures are 100x more dangerous that of Worker’s Party.
    HC’s position as S’pore SWF’s chief will be under harsh scrutiny going forward. Both siblings will try to undermine their sister-in-law as much as possible in order to undermine Li Hongyi’s ascendancy to the throne. Even PM LHL will be under harsh scrutiny from either siblings whom are well-informed & are in the loop of knowing the negative issues plaguing the S’pore economy.
    Look at the way both siblings bypass the Mainstream media by putting up the 6-page statement directly into the Internet broadcast mechanism. They are well-acquainted with the Soft power media outlets of the Internet vs the typical organs of the MSM & traditional media outlets controlled by the PAP govt.
    Even Dr Lee Wei Ling is apt in the use of political influence & soft power sic: Dr Simon Shorvon & his unethical practices; Mr Philip Yeo, S’pore top civil servant whose own political influence fell considerably after engaging with Dr Lee.
    Dr Lee also wrote: “Yes, the current government is distinctly different from the government when LKY was PM and subsequently SM. One wise and observant journalist has written that the current government is less frank and upfront with Singaporeans. Let me remind everyone, the current government was voted in by Singaporeans. If it does not act for the welfare of Singaporeans, it can be voted out.” And she can be cutting to a point!

    If Pinky’s siblings also fear for their life, that means it confirmed “something” we the peasants have been suspecting all this while. And if Pinky’s siblings need to run road because they feared the state organ will be used against them, then Sinkies who can afford better prepared to do likewise.

    Why should the sister and younger brother “resort” to talk in public ???

    It is a CALL for PUBLIC ATTENTION to SOMETHING BIGGER than a “house” issue !!!

    These are WARNING calls…to WAKEUP the Public …who are still “sleeping” and thinking that Mai Hum is your Servant & you are the Master !

    The words ” ABUSE OF POWERs”…and all the recent “absurb increases” and even “causing foreign friction between foreign Leaders and our Country”……all these are “tell tale” signs that this is NOT A GOOD LEADER !

    Now that Sister, Younger Brother and even Nephew have “risk” themselves and are “sending out fore warning” signals….THOSE DAFT 70% BETTER WAKEUP !

  • Sporeans deserve it:

    The 70 pct brayed spore and now we have this drama unfolding;I read the msm and try read between the lines;
    The employment scene is bad and we are bypassed by china; the CHINESE are cunning and will kill you but not say it; they are helping our Neighbours north of the causeway to strangle us by building ports and infrastructure that compete with us; how much clearer can it be;
    I almost vomit when I saw viv Bala n the CHINESE foreign minister walking arm in arm on TV and saying we hv good relations; who are u kidding;if it is good do you need say it; Najib came BK fr china with 32 b trade deals ; needless
    To say whatever we say a bout him he brought BK the results ; we need doers not paper generals and scholars ;
    Look at Lim TEAN fr nsp; he is worth many Chan Chun seng
    What annoys me is that lhl is surrounded by sycophants who donot point out his mistakes; for Yrs we have seen influx of foreign trash with bogus degrees stealing our rice bowls and now the stench is surfacing as the economy restructures; we have to get foreign cos to come and help local PMETs find jobs; are local Organisations not good enough; ?.
    Furthermore we have a Govt run by inbred military or ex paper generals who were given a career path without working and proving themselves and who pander to the big boss; yes we are in shit
    We have a Govt making mistakes nobody says a thing ; main stream media is apologetic and glosses over it;
    We will pay for it Yrs down the Rd ; we are paying now for mass imports of foreign trash 5-15 yrs ago and paying for the stop at 2 family planning; Yrs ago lky abolish dialects so the media can control the Popn with mandarin now we have a generation speaking Singlish n poor quality mandarin; other day I saw a news report wanting to bring BK dialects and high tech farming which was phased out Yrs bk

    Shengwu,

    Saya tahu awak faham Bahasa Malaysia.

    Sila tinggalkan Singapura secepat mungkin. Kalau tak sempat lari ke Eropah atau Amerika, pergi ke Malaysia. LHL tak boleh sentuh keluarga awak di Malaysia.

    Singapura masih ada ISA jadi amat merbahaya kalau keluarga awak terus tinggal di Singapura. Takde siapa yang boleh tolong awak di Singapura kerana semua takut dengan LHL.

    Ramai warga /bekas warga Singapura yang duduk di Malaysia.

    Take my advice. Leave while you can before the exit is completely blocked. Ask your aunt to do the same.

    HISTORY DOES NOT LIE – the emperor’s throne is ROTATIONAL. No matter who rise next to the throne, the last emperor is going to be another impotent POO YI rocked by barricaded (just like PINKDOT barricade on 1 July 2017) division within the palace.

    The nation will be mired in poverty struggle and total disintegration maybe war waged from outside and risks from foreign occupation.

    Let us looks at fresh faces and alternatives and not try to prop up collapsed pillars with rotting decaying woods beams.

    Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling, stand on platform to dismantle the State organs used to decimate critics and opponents of the PAP, used to perpetuate the oppressive rule of the PAP, and bring back freedom to Singaporeans and return Singapore to a system based on true meritocracy, and where no Singaporean need to fear for his/her life stepping up, or fear of having his ricebowl and future ruined by the despotic PAP for sticking his/her neck out or for challenging or opposing the PAP.

    Indeed, you owe that to Singaporeans.

    I applaud the decision by the Dr. Lee and her brother to make this story public. Now the other members of the Lee clan are beginning to feel the psychological control most Singaporeans have had to endure with for fear of being financially ruined. Amos Lee is what many Singaporeans secretly desire to be, including me. He had the guts to challenge the dictatorship of L*L. It is a shame for any member of the Lee family contemplating to leave Singapore. Stand up and fight for your rights.

    L*L has mentioned about aristocracy and will do anything to make Istana the ‘Buckingham Palace’ of his family.

    I hope this is a wake up call to all Singaporeans that you are indeed controlled from the cradle to the grave. The Lees have suppressed opposition from gaining foot hole in the political machine. Don’t wait for another Korea from happening.

    They can run but we can’t, as not all of us are rich like them. But let’s pray hard and hope someone cancer/stroke faster outbreak to the final stage and die. Then things will change slightly.

    We are the citizens here, when our leaders are doing shit. Shouldn’t we stay try to find of ways to resolve the issues than running away? Why do we have to run because of them? This is not a company that runs by CEO but a company for all Singaporeans!

    Double confirmed. From Dr Lee latest post :

    I am out of Singapore, with erratic and slow internet connection. The article that appeared in the Singapore press gave PM’s version of the story. Our letter was carefully vetted by our lawyers and obviously not in my own voice.
    My American friend who is the tour leader of my Scottish island holiday thought it a family quarrel. If it were merely a family affair, we would not have taken it public. The main message is not Hsien Yang & I fearing what PM will do to us. The most important point I want to put across is if PM can misuse his official power to abuse his siblings who can fight back, what else can he do to ordinary citizens. But our lawyer edited that main message out, and as Hsien Yang got most of the bullying, he could not help but allow his emotion to be expressed in the press statement. That is what led my American friend to conclude that it is a family quarrel.

    This lack of checks and balances is the old fart’s own doing. He had created a society where only what he says goes.

    All the kids accepted that. Now even his own intention of having his own house demolished cannot be carried out. That must be karma for him.

    It is time the 70% (if that is the real percentage), to wake up. They must realise that checks and balances are essential and necessary in any society to prevent demogoges from ruingin the country. Sure, it is not neat and tidy but it works.

    So whichever way this saga turns it was the product of their own deliberate actions or inactions.

    Personally, we are seeing just how deep seated the clowns intentions are to control the little red dot. It is no laughing matter.
