Lee Hsien Yang: Publicizing famiLEE feud needed to safeguard national interest

Mr Lee Hsien Yang

Responding to media queries from South China Morning Post, Mr Lee Hsien Yang said that making public the famiLEE feud was necessary to “safeguard the national interest of the country”.

“When a Prime Minister uses the government to grasp what he wants, this ceases to be a ‘private family matter’and added that “we speak up at great personal cost because we care deeply for the Singapore our father built.”.

Mr Lee reiterates that he and his sister stand to gain nothing from the demolition of the late Lee Kuan Yew’s house at 38 Oxley Road, “other than the knowledge that we have honoured our father’s last wish.”.

“What could we gain from bringing this public, that would be worth political exile from our home? No personal benefit could ever balance those scales,” Mr Lee said.

In the initial release on his Facebook, Mr Lee had said the harassment he was facing from “organs of state” for clashing with his elder brother, PM Lee Hsien Loong, on the matter was so grave that he had made plans to go into self-exile.

However, he did not reveal when he was planning to leave the country or where to.

    One thing that is almost certain is that lhl & ho ching won’t be ever be invited for Christmas lunch or dinner with lwl or lhw.

    Very likely the bridges are burned.

    And also for sure is the legacy of lky is forever tarnished.

    Lhl will have to bear mist of the responsibility of this fiasco.

    Singaporeans are shamed by the manner & conduct of lhl & ho ching in this drama.

    Pretty sure now that the gloves are off, we’ll see even more fireworks than the national day.
    It’s nice to be rich but it’s better to be happy & contented.

    Lky with all his huge wealth can’t bring a single cent with him.
    Instead he left behind a mess that Singapore & Singaporeans now have to go through the mud with his kids.

    LHY won the war he waged against his brother. He opened the eyes and minds of the people including PAP members. There is much soul searching going on and Singaporeans are expressing disquiet and deep concern. PM Lee is on the defensive and may be forced into early retirement. The fortune of the PAP is tied to the outcome of the Parliamentary session on 3rd July. It is D-Day for PM Lee.

    Up till now, he quite steady lah. Not bad. Boleh tahan. More of him to come.
    how about Ah Loong? His gang so big, rich and powerful and fierce like pai kai but he still want to recuse this, recuse that. No steady lah.

    Seriously, I think for LHY and LWL the demolition of the House is non-negotiable. They are even prepare to fight the US President for if they have to.

    Things like LKY’s Anniversary and memorial site, using LKY’s name as a PAP rallying force I think they are willing to give way to the PM and take a backseat.

    U truly overestimate the morals of the die hard Pappy supporting Sinkies (noticed I did not state 70% cos I view this likely rigged fake % with grave concern-LOL).

    Pappy supporting Sinkies are FULLY aware of PAPsmear’s corrupt nature but still chose to support cos they ALL have some form of invested interests somehow. See how they attack LHY and LWL online with no respect to their lineage to Old MAn. They bootlick and suck Pinky’s political banana so hard and desperately that it cease to exist and turned into a Hole Jinx.

    This is just the beginning of Karma for Pinky and all cronies and Pappy bootlickers. Be patient, the storm of repercussions are already looming toward this doomed nation. Prepare for IMPACT!

    The first very mistake in PM’s apology is he said he was given equal shares. Next why sold it to brother, so what’s so great about donating it to charity. Without elaborating further, sinkies are still filial to their parents. We still have that family value there though it is getting smaller. Parents can die for their children & children can sacrifice their own future to look after their parents. He makes a blunder in his apology. It has backfired. No sympathy to the Dishonorable One.

    It only shows how out of touch he is.

    LHL is attempting to turn the attacks to his personal self into an attack to the state. The naked emperor is trying to use the cover of parliament to hide his shame. What next, charge his brother with sedition with trumped up accusations?

    @ Dr Tan Tai Wei

    THE USE OF MINISTERIAL COMMITTEE (no less) to attempt to CHANGE THE LEGAL STATUS of a private property known as 38 Oxley Road, is primae facie abuse of power leveraging on the organs of the State to oppress the lawful property rights of its legitimate owner, LHY.

    If 38, Oxyley Road is national heritage, neither PAST TENSE and different or same lawyers COULD NOT HAVE DRAFT the Will of PAST TENSE – he forbid the physical and privacy space of the said residency from public trepass not only in his life time BUT FOREVER AFTER HE HAS GONE TO TERN SUA. Those Wills – 7 in total signed by PAST TENSE – is living legal proof it is PRIVATE PROPERTY – all trespasser will be forcibly evicted. No lawyers will draft such an invalid and unlawful will (and advising the client otherwise that it is valid/lawful in false legal advice) expecting this unlawful legal instrument to be lawful and be complied of by all under State and national law application in contradiction!

    Throughout the life of PAST TENSE AND UNTIL ANY TIME PRIOR TO THE PURCHASE OF THE SAID PROPERTY by LHY, it was never made known to anyone that this is a risk of gazettee as “national heritage”. If LHY is aware of this encumbrances, would be pay 10 cents for it, let a lone tens of millions of dollars? He is NOT stupid. Neither is his father stupid to demand “no trespass by public members long after he gone to TERN SUA.

    If Ministerial Committee can DETERMINE a change of legal status of a private residence to national heritage and implement it via a coterie of other govt organs, it means Ministerial Committee is making the law of the State outside Parliamentary process and judicial check and balance of legality or illegality. In simple terms, it is LAW made by Ministers., so why are we paying for the salary and financial rewards to cockroaches in the House of Most Expensive Decorations? We can do without them, right? In no democracy, no statutory law are made outside Parliament and no common law is made OUTSIDE the courtroom!

    In democracy, no law is made by “royal”decree or edict unlike ancient China. I don’t suspect POO YI nor remote mythology fiction of Empress, her royal highness Dowageress re-incarnated in Ah Tiong land or any where else of democratic rule.

    So Sinkieland is not an exception. Any decree made by Ministerial Committee is UNLAWFUL, abuse of power and use of public GONADS for private agenda – JUST AS LHY ALLEGES.

    Why did loong sell the house to yang?
    Its to take away people’s suspicion that loong will not demolish. If title of house go to yang yang can demolish it beung owner. However loong played yang out, after selling the housr, form a ministerial committee which is likely to block the demolition.

    Would you believe me if I told you that I offered to sell my house for $1 to my sister but my sister decline ?

    Funny, that the house was later sold to younger brother at 150% market price .

    And soon after, younger brother and same sister comes out to public and expose ??

    Which NORMAL person would “BUY” this story ?

    I think only a “Daft” or some “stupid cult followers”( like those City harvest followers ) would .

  • PM guilty of insider trading?:

    Remember the house is considered worthless except in the eyes of the PAP cronies. It is the land that is worth millions.

    So when the PM sold the the house to his brother @ market value and after that initiate the Ministerial committee to look into other options for the house, can the PM be accused of insider trading even though he is donating the proceeds to charity but that is besides the question ?

  • Democracy Vs Emperor System:

    “Over the last week, Singaporeans have been disturbed and confused by news of the private dispute between my siblings and me. I deeply regret that this dispute has affected Singapore’s reputation and Singaporeans’ confidence in the Government.
    - PM Lee Hsien Loong

    +++++++++++++++

    Just imagine.
    One family can affect Singapore’s reputation and Singaporeans’ confidence in the Government.

    Do you not find this troubling after 51 years of nationhood?

    So is it true?
    When the Lee family sneezes, Singapore catches a cold?
    When the Lee family catches a cold, Singapore will die of pneumonia?

    So is Singapore a fully functioning democracy with separate parts of government capable of independent decision & leadership?
    OR
    is Singapore an Emperor system of government where nothing can move without the Emperor’s approval?

    What do you think?

    Disagree.
    LKY only bring out his knuckle duster when his is sure of winning.
    He had went into hiding before. Go check out the chalet in Changi where he hid while his college went about their work during a difficult period in history.
    Also, he went to work for the occupational forces of the Japanese army in Singapore during WW2, while many courageous Chinese died resisting the Japanese.
    No need to hold LKY in such high esteem. He is a pragmatic man at most.

  • LHL IS NOT a Unifier:

    One thing for sure, PAP has many ways and instruments ‘to skin a cat’.

    Unfortunately for PAP, Mr Lee Hsien Yang is no ordinary man.

    Unlike LKY, PM LHL IS NOT a unifier and a natural leader for the entire population. LHL’s policies and leadership style divides the nation.

    As far as I am concerned, LHL cares more for his well-being by being a idealistic leader for the elitist and by building an elaborate civil service machinery to fulfil and achieve his selfish goals. This include replacing true blue Sinkies with ‘cheap foreign talents’, if it serves to enhance his core elitist and civil service worshippers.

    The two siblings must have been holding back their anguish and grieves for too long. Their conscience of exposing their big bro and sister-in-law are too expensive to pay. Who is playing the evil role? No one knows. Even they listed all the harassments they received, who dare to stand-up to back them? Police, lawyers or the weak Singaporeans?

    There is this tiny church in JB which we visited some time ago. To our astonishment we found a plaque remembering JBJ put up by his son Philip and family! Why in JB when he is a hero back in Singapore?

    If indeed LHY leaves Singapore, it might just be retribution for much of the injustice inflicted on good and patriotic Singaporeans and allowing a bunch of good for nothings to run the country. Although LKY had done for Singaporeans, some of his deeds are really hateful to Singaporeans. For LHY to leave Singapore, is KARMA as many people would have said.

  • Why?:

    Citing the matter of LKY’s papers as a specific example, I think LHY needs to disclose what he did to resolve the matter.

    If LHY disagrees with the actions of HC and LHL, what did LHY say and do? Did LHY express his disagreement, and put forward his view on how this matter should have been handled? Did LHY give adequate time to HC and LHL to address this issue? Did LHY then ask for the matter to be resolved properly after his appointment as Executor of LKY’s Estate?

    As LHY rightly said, these are the property of the Estate. And as one of the Executors of LKY Estate, LHY has every right to request for any such papers to be returned and for LHY and LWL to decide on the appropriate course of action.

    The main objective of this post is this – before publicising all this, what did LHY and LWL do to resolve these issues in a nice way? And any allegations made have to be accompanied by a description of what LHY and LWL did to resolve this amicably with LHL and HC, and what did LHY and LWL do to this end?

  • Why?:

    I do not claim that the Govt is right in every respect.

    But all the parties need to make fuller disclosure in the statements that they make. So far, there have been so many toxic allegations made by LHY, and often these have been incomplete accounts of events.

    it is obvious this matter had been brewing for a long time. LWL calling LHL the d**honourable son was the beginning of the private family affairs spilling into the open.

    The questions should then be, why LHL did not work to resolve the issues with his family and instead, continued his misguided approach to use state organs to get his way, blowing this family matter into the open of such massive proportions.

  • Best Wishes to Lee Hsien Yang:

    LHY and family will be excited and happy with the relocation. There is so much life and opportunities outside Sinkapore. Cost of living is very affordable in many other Asian cities including HK, and even in Australia and NZ, if you are prepared to live in the outskirts of these cities.

    I have many friends and relatives whom have migrated in the last 15 years. None of them has regretted making their big move. My family is also planning to relocate within the next 3 years.

    Never mine what GCT said when he labelled Singaporeans migrating as ‘quitters’. GCT and PAP probably has their own agenda wanting Singaporeans to stay behind to serve the PAP elites. Every individual and family has to make their own plans what is best for their future.

    May I wish LHY and family Happiness, Success and Good Luck wherever they decide would be their next home. It is fun and exciting times for them. And, hey, after relocation, they can always anytime fly to Singapore for a vacation.
