PAP went against Lee Kuan Yew’s wishes to honor him?

What is there to deliberate, Lee Hsien Loong? Watch this interview of LKY in 2011 where he expressed his desire to have his Oxley Road home demolished after his death. In the interview, he cites two main reasons for that decision:

1. Cost of preservation – as the house was built more than 100 years ago and does not have a foundation, as a result of which cracks have started to appear due to construction nearby.

2. To free up constraints of the neighbouring land as developers are prohibited from constructing buildings beyond a certain height. Demolishing the house will therefore free up the surrounding area.

Why then are Lee Hsien Loong and his cabinet of useless ministers still discussing about what to do with the house?

    Because the ability to milk LKY’s legacy for his own (LHL’s) political gain is priceless.

    Interesting ‘drama’ awaits.

    Which side should the PAPies and CS stand?

    One side which is against lky’s last will is damn powerful and has huge monetary benefits to gain just to be yes-man. On the other side, to help fulfil lky’s wish out of great respect for the PAP founding father, chances are that many would get themselves into big big trouble.

    Ordinary sgreans cannot remain neutral and should know what to do. This is the time to unite or we’ll be dangerously stuck with a leeder whose political power will only become stronger and stronger till he’s impossible to be defeated.

    Like lky or not, we should all agree to remove the house as well as the unfilial leeder who’s alleged to misuse his official power even on his own siblings.

    The House at 38 Oxley Road provides the PAP with humongous political capital. PM Lee knows that the loss of the House will sound the death knell for the PAP. As such, the PM has no scruples about sacrificing kinship in order to keep a tight grip of his power and to perpetuate his rule for as long as he can. His siblings are now deemed to be a threat to his political survival. He is now taking steps to force them into living in exile.

  • Amos humiliate L*L and PAP:

    Why PAP went against LKY wishes? A very simple answer – LHL can pay them, LKY is ashes, He can no longer pay anybody. Singapore is a very expensive place to live. Always need money.

    “Why then are Lee Hsien Loong and his cabinet of useless ministers still discussing about what to do with the house?”

    because his papa answered a foreign reporter long ago that the general perception his son is PM because of him. Off guard he declared that his son is a “He is very much a man of his own”.

    Do you agreed? I do. Because he has shown how different he is from his papa, sister, brother and more like his WiFee. As her deleted Middle Finger Monkey Face in critic of sister-in=law LWL was deleted in record time from her Facebook. All in defense of her hubby in discourse with his younger sister which isn’t her business. And in public www sphere too with nary of any shame. She made a very cunning excuse too. Anyone remember or has screen-shot etc copy care to share of her excuse then?

    Why in public internet sphere she sowed discord? And not patiently in private get all together to mediate. To deep discord liao is it not. Doubt she commanded any respect from hubby’s sibling. Going by her GunHo attitude of not growing our SemCorp, STechnology along with Chartered Industry & STATS too! Then our CPF in TH as well! Yet he said he married her because she is intelligent? Agreed that both are “Intelligenterered”. As PMO had such ministers w/o portfolios like Lim Swee Say, Lim Boon Heng now chairman in TH woe! Nt a quanxi type G meh? What do you all think?

    The message is crystal clear, to demolish the home after his death.

    The statement by the Cabinet Secretary on the setting up of a Committee is a laughing stock unless on direction which is a bigger laughing stock.

    LKY should be very happy (if a dead man can be happy).
    He had successfully build up the type of government he desired.
    All that is transpiring now is prove of his ability to build a 1 party rule government! Very expedient and not cumbersome. Able to do everything quickly and effectively for “the good of the nation”!

    Bravo, LKY. You deserve a monument at 38 Oxley Road!

    Not demolishing the house is for the good of Singapore and Singaporeans.

    Both LHY and LWL are traitors who acted against the interest of Singapore and thus Singaporeans by insisting on demolishing it.

    We ardent supporters of PAP urged our Great Leader PM Lee to swiftly use ISA to detain both LHY and LWL and gag them indefinitely.

    This saga is not caused by LHL or his siblings! The real cunning culprit is Ho Ching!

    Remember, in the old Chinese history, throughout the various Emperors during the Ching Dynasty, there is always a “Dowager” who is in fact the de-facto ruler giving advise to the Emperor behind the scene. Francis Seow mentioned that LKY’s Dowager was his wife Kwa Geok Choo and this is continued with LHL.
    It must have been the daily pressure and grumblings that made LHL to do all the things that angered his siblings!

    The thing to note about politics is :

    Everything and ANYthing CAN BE political

    1. Religion issues can be political
    2. Private issue can be political
    3. Racial issue can be political
    4. Cultural issue can be political
    5. Medical
    6. Entertainment
    7. Literature
    8. Tech
    9. Fashion
    A. Art
    B. Sports

    In other words
    Simi lanjeow also can be political , metaphorically speaking.

    SmLJ does not really mean LJ.
    It’s a metaphor.

    The Sounds of Silence.

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said “The words of the prophets
    Are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sounds of silence…
