Li ShengWu: The country must be bigger than one family

Li ShengWu, the grandson of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew and eldest son of Mr Lee Hsien Yang has posted on his Facebook indicating that he has no intention of going into politics.

Sharing that he had given a statement to international news outlet, AFP, he stated that not only he intends never to go into politics, he believes that it would be bad for Singapore if any third-generation Lee went into politics and that the country must be bigger than one family.

Twelve hours ago I gave the following statement to AFP: ‘Not only do I intend never to go into politics, I believe that it would be bad for Singapore if any third-generation Lee went into politics. The country must be bigger than one family.”

He further wrote,

Today we are going to learn a lot about the country of my birth. We are going to learn whether (as I hope) the ruling party is still full of men and women of quality and strong character, or whether “it is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

Earlier on Wednesday (14 June), Mr Li had also posted on his Facebook about the joint statement that his father and aunt, Dr Lee Wei Ling made in regards to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Stating that it is an exception as he generally avoid commenting on Singapore politics, he notes that his family has become increasingly worried about the lack of checks on abuse of power and the situation has come to a point where his parents have made plans to relocate to another country, “a painful decision that they have not made lightly”.

    Li ShengWu: Mr Li, who has a PhD from Stanford University,  is currently a deputy director of a statutory board.

    Hard to take him honestly at face value! Who funded his PhD from Stanford University? “Meritocratic” scholarship? Public Service Commission?
    What is the basis of his position as deputy director of a statutory board? Dare we say nepotism for fear of getting a defamation suit?
    These people are the beneficiaries of the political system started by his grandfather. When we, the common people, can hardly get a good job in competition against foreigners – How do we feel sorry for them? It’s a bit hard to swallow their ‘problems’ when none of them have any sympathy for the common people. Did they speak out for the common people? No, they are so full of themselves so how do we feel sorry for them?

  • PAP.SURE.WIN:

    Dear Li ShengWu,

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

    Think.. it strengthen our dollar of S$1 to RM 3.09

    By insisting on demolishing the house, LHY and LWL are now traitors who acted against the interest of Singapore and thus Singaporeans at large.

    LHY and LWL are creating havoc that weaken our dollar and turn it to RM 1 to S$3

    Singaporeans no longer can shop and buy 2 or 3 terrace house in Johor Bahru.

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

  • do you have ball:

    Hello PM, do you have ball? If yes, then settle the family matter ( to scrutinise a family well) by using the family court and not through something what you call special ministerial committee. I do not think Singaporean is very happy to see you using our tax money to settle your personal issue. This may amount to what people call ” abuse of power”. The relationship between Singapore and China is at its low now. Why don’t you divert the ministers ( not sure how many of them ) from this committee to address the China relationship. We need all the million dollar ministers to be there. This is what I call a sound strategy that a PM should do and not asking million dollar ministers to looking into your family dirty linens.

    Thanks

  • Amos is better than Shengwu:

    Those who think Shengyu is so good should think again. Amos is much much better even if does not have a PdH from Stanford. He spoke out despite the risk he faced. He went to jail for what he believed in. Shengwu being LKY’s grandson is “untouchable”. He only speaks out after his father got whacked by LHL. What LSY’s family is afraid o happened to many other Singaporeans. They never spoke up.

  • Amos humiliate L*L and PAP:

    Amos humiliated LHL and PAP in US court. They get humiliated again by LHL’s siblings. The siblings also torpedoed the appeal against giving Amos asylum. Now Amos will surely get asylum in US. Another humiliation for LHL and PAP.

    How much humiliation can a person especially a politician and a PM take and stay in power?

    PAP has an important decision to make – continue to support LHL (and risk getting trashed at the next GE) or dump him to save the party. It must remember that respect for LKY is what turned a certain big defeat in the last GE to a big victory. Supporting LHL’s disrespect for his father will most likely lead to a massive loss of votes even regime change.

  • How true!:

    It takes a grandson of his to say ” it is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his SALARY depends upon his not understanding it!”.
    Absolutely. You buy muteness and created dumbness, you ensure their undivided “loyalty”, all those sitting pretty in parliament. Obviously led by the noses orchestrated by the very few inner circle key deciders. They run this country like a private fiefdom. Who is there to question them really.
    The rest have been keeping quiet to safeguard their pockets. These are no politicians in the real sense. They are there to get a good income, that’s all. Listen to the pathetic statements they issue once in a while. Nothing of real value and substance, nothing to challenge or discuss st length silly projects like the Jewel, or the soundness of the controversial EP issues glaringly and overwhelming unsupported on the ground.
    All merely repeating soft nice sounding statements with a clear “don’t-get-my-position-in-trouble” kind of positioning statements. Look at what happened to the very few in their camp that dare to speak up with some alternative ideas or views. They were exited.
    We have been in a sorry state of affairs from the very beginning. Bullied and toyed around like babies. Opposition voices that have boldly speak up on issues have been systematically and ruinously brought down.
    We are a duplicate of North Korea in a different camouflaged form.
    One of them said this is the price we are paying for our success. Bullshit! This is the price we are paying for their well paid positions and salaries and perks and bonuses and retirement plans.

  • Ozymandias:

    Ozymandias By Percy Bysshe Shelley
    I met a traveller from an antique land,
    Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
    And on the pedestal, these words appear:
    My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
    Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

  • James Lee:

    The public mostly have great respect for LKY. He had built up Singapore. The public would not be happy to see his last wish of demolishing he Oxley Road home unfulfilled. If there are doubts regarding the authenticity of the Last Will the matter should be brought to the Court. Why form a ministerial committee to ask questions regarding the facts and circumstances leading to the creation of the Last Will and have the matter spill into the public domain when a controversy erupts? Dirty linen is now being washed in public. Serious allegations have been made regarding the impartiality of senior civil servants. All these happenings does not bode well for the country when there are more pressing economic issues now then ever before for the government to deal with to ensure the prosperity the country enjoys under LKY remains. I am sure many Singaporeans are getting perturbed with this ongoing drama and hope the parties involved can settle their differences amicably and not escalate it to the further detriment of the economy and country’s image. Not honouring LKY’s said last wish does not seem sensible given the high regard the public generally have for him. Much political capital would be lost too.

  • Why are behaving like this?:

    I always look up at politicians as people who have that little extra, that respond to an inner calling to want to help and better the conditions of their country and people. But looking around the world today and reading and knowing what is going on, one cannot help but sadly doubt the sincerity of many politicians. There are some genuine sincere good-hearted politicians. But many are suspect, out to enrich themselves and enjoy the power that goes with it as a serving politician, especially if you are in a senior position or you are a minister. They are making hay while the sun shines.
    The fact that you have to invite a person to enter politics with the lure of an attractive salary is in itself unflattering and unconvincing. You could easily conclude that if one don’t get that kind of a salary offer, chances are he or she will not be interested. This is the sad situation here where we are not producing or throwing up politicians of the kind that true blue politicians are made of. And if you don’t belong or associate with the ruling camp, or you are set up to oppose with well meaning alternative views, you are considered fit to be discarded and destroyed.
    This is the state of affairs going on here.
    Those in power feels that what they have been doing or going to do is largely correct and acceptable. Perhaps they meant well and are truly thinking in the overall interests of the country and people. But what is hard to understand is if they are intellectually mature and forward looking and progressive, surely they ought to know that nobody has the monopoly on wisdom and assuredly doing the right thing all the time.
    The PAP has done extraodinary things and must be credited for it. But the PAP could have been even greater still had they tolerated and engage their “opponents” robustly in arguing policies and other matters, and go for the win and concede graciously if they are proven incorrrct in their judgement. Instead the image now created is that they bully with little or no tolerance and ride roughshod over anyone that dare challenge them.
    What many fail to understand is why such a mentality. They have a strong and brilliant team, surely they could justify whatever they set out to do in a logical convincing manner.
    It as apparent that what is absent and lacking is humility and consideration for the thoughts and feelings of others. Be less aggressive and tone down the demolition of opponents with s big sledge hammer. Give them a chance and out-argue them. Wouldn’t that make PAP a truly super great party if you could convincingly prove your points.
    And you have the brilliant people with you, so what is the problem?

  • Natural Meritocracy:

    Singapore is a country, just like any others who should believe in Meritocracy, not just in words but seen in action and results.

    There is an idiot who dares to say that he believes in Meritocracy but also that the first family should carry on the line as Natural Aristocrats. I guess he hopes we should be following the British System. Guess it’s another one of his jokes that nobody laughs about but makes him look stupid, as usual.

    As rightfully stated in an AsiaOne article by LHY, ‘Singapore’s first family should quit politics’. Did the 2nd generation idiot obtain his position as PeeM through Meritocracy? How abt the conflict of interest HC and her Billion dollar losses? Sleep on same bed means naturally no need check n balance or accountability. If there’s ever a 3rd generation Lee, likely through the back door GRC system, right?

    Holding on to power, surrounding oneself with useless yes-men who are only interested in enriching themselves and towing the line, coercing obedience through fear and intimidation….are these hallmarks of a Great Leeder? How similar are we with North Korea?

    Whatever good works done by the Old Guards and the early days of great leedership of the Old Man are being wasted by this idiot who still thinks highly of himself. He has the 70% daft followers who are brainwashed by state controlled media and do not see the trees in the forest. See any similarity with CHC followers? Seems difficult to imagine but yet is happening in our once great nation.

    Than later, their parents will rally support for both of them by pretending to give them public pressure. Join lah! The country needs you lah. Kind of show.

  • Sense or garbage:

    “Men’s understanding tagged to his salary” is a sensible statement with regards to (wrt) PAP MPs and Ministers which is embraced in polanpa, bootlicking, brown nosing etc which have been an important and integral part of nepotism started by the grandfather with PAPplp supreme nicknamed as seat warmer. If the grandson really feel that it is evil he should have advised the grandfather, and if he had listened then his family vould have avoided what is facing them now and also helped rescue the persecuted from agony and financial losses including seeking for political asylum. When others faced this problem, why did the grandson stay mute at the sideline. Does it sound garbage for what would be sensible if he had said it earlier and said it loud.
    This is particularly so with the lament over the lack of checks and the reality of abuse of power. The grandfather and his herd of plps after hr has secured his nepotic ambition told publicly that PAP self checks and balances which most including the uneducated do not believe is possible and even the man himself knew he was spewing garbage. hence the birth of unconstitutional MPs which codenamed as NMP and NCMP. Again why the grandson told his grandfather even he is old BUT still MM drawing millions a year So a sensibility has once again turned into garbage.
    Such only happens wrt a person who oversizes his misery relative to others. Greed induces this. Interestingly this makes one recall the public statement made by late LKY regarding rising fron the dead if anything went foul. At that time many if not all both local and foreign thought and may still be thinking he referred to the state of health wrt his ‘Lee Dynasty” ( apology to foreign media for using their phrase) but from current happening, it looks as if he has premonition of what would happen to his dynasty.

    The good old saying of Do not do unto other what u do not want to have done to you has taken its leave from intelligent men attacked by the greed virus

    Sad even felt by those who fell prey to the men with extreme greed as evidenced by their silence, a sign of goodness. Karma is a wondrous thing that good man trusts and greed despises.

    Just recently who exhorts Singaporeans to be greedier, hungrier and more ruthless in job Seeking! He who said that has wiped out the hard work of building a gracious and kind society if Singaporeans do what he exhorts. Hope the 70+% Singaporeans aren’t as stupid as what his grandfather has rudely said they are daft.

    If the young man has wakened to SIN reality, he should learn how to be charitable but not us others’ $ to do so like his grandfather.

    Why don’t Li Hingyi come out publicly to say the same things as Li Shengwu?: ” Not only do I intend never to go into politics, I believe that it would be bad for Singapore if any third-generation Lee went into politics. The country must be bigger than one family.”

    In fact, every children in the third generation FAMILEE should come out and say this.

  • How come?:

    An interesting point raised in “LHL Dynasty” siblimg accusation is the successor of taizi. It was later furthrr elaborated by different source that the taizi is now a consultant to the PAP Govt immediately after the taizi was said to have denied that there was no such plan nor interest in politics. What is a consultant to the govt? What eexperience and rxpertise he has to aualify for the Job? What is his pay? Who Appoint? Or it is simply a nepotic appt like those made during the previous emperor’s Reign? Would PAP cabonet care to explain? Silence implies speculation permitted!

    Amos humiliate L*L and PAP:

    Amos humiliate L*L and PAP:
    Amos humiliated LHL and PAP in US court. They get humiliated again by LHL’s siblings. The siblings also torpedoed the appeal against giving Amos asylum. Now Amos will surely get asylum in US. Another humiliation for LHL and PAP.
    How much humiliation can a person especially a politician and a PM take and stay in power?
    PAP has an important decision to make – continue to support LHL (and risk getting trashed at the next GE) or dump him to save the party. It must remember that respect for LKY is what turned a certain big defeat in the last GE to a big victory. Supporting LHL’s disrespect for his father will most likely lead to a massive loss of votes even regime change.
    The biggest humiliation by Amos was on himself, despite being granted asylum for the time being, he is still in jail.

    Remember Nelson Mandela was in jail for 22 years but was still hailed as hero and even became President of South Africa. If you don’t understand this join the PAP, you are qualified.

    Don’t make me laugh comparing Amos to Nelson Mandela. Mandela was jailed while fighting vigorously against the govt of S. Africa and was jailed by the S. African govt.

    Amos was jailed after running away from the govt to another country and was jailed by the govt whom he thought would save him from PAP.

  • Not the Full Picture:

    This whole thing has been blown out of proportion.

    It has degenerated into a back and forth series of allegations, some proven and some unproven, and is accompanied by a series of views and opinions on whether LHL is fit to be PM. Those views and opinions are far too sweeping conclusions to be drawn from these events.

    GCT was right in saying this is a petty affair. They should settle this behind closed doors. In the first place, LHY and LWL are overly rigid with this issue. LHY and LWL have to remember that in many ways, LKY belonged to all of us. LKY may have been their dear father, but he is a figure who has loomed large over Singapore for many years, and I think it is hardly a feasible solution for LHY and LWL to decide unilaterally what can and should be done.

  • Dinners are just dinners:

    Best if there could be primaries like in USA. Then LSW could stand in a primary and defeat some pro-LHL candidate and go on to enter Parliament on his own steam.

    Elections Dept should facilitate pre-GE primaries if any political party wants to have primaries say within a 3 to 6 week period after elections have been announced.
