PM Lee tearfully appeals for reconciliation in Parliament

Past Parliamentary session

At the closing of the 2-day Parliamentary session on the famiLEE feud between Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his siblings, PM Lee teared up as he recounted how his late father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew had wished for him to take care of his siblings (when he is no longer around).

PM Lee added that he did not expect tensions between him and his siblings to enfold so explosively and said that he hopes he can reconcile with them in the future:

When I was about 13, my father had told me, ‘If anything happens to me, please take care of you mother, your younger sister and brother.’

Singapore was then part of Malaysia and we were in a fierce fight with the central government and the communalists. My father didn’t tell me but he knew his life was in danger.

Fortunately, nothing happened to my father then. He brought up the family and I thought we had a happy family and he lived a long, full life.

Little did I expect that after my parents died, these tensions would erupt with such grievous consequences – and after so many years, I will be unable to fulfill the role which my father hoped I would.

So I hope, one day, these passions will subside and we can begin to reconcile.

The last time that Singaporeans saw PM Lee in tears, they gave the People’s Action Party an overwhelming mandate to screw them for a few more years.

It leaves to be seen if PM Lee’s siblings will accept his emotional appeal this time round to reconcile.

    His siblings know Mai Hum’s character and behavior inside out, left and right, top and bottom. So they are unlikely to buy Mai Hum shedding of crocodile tears in the final act of the Wayang Kulit in Parliament today!

    However, because of his so dramatic and shocking Crying act, there a 101% possibility that Mai Hum might attain 80% (against current 69.9%) of mandate in the next GE which is due in 2020!

    Apart from the rich getting more greedy and become richer, and the poor getting poorer, and the middle class going nowhere, want to die cannot die, want to go up cannot go up, aliens everywhere, full of thieves stealing lunches, poor men cannot retire with dignity, young ones’ future no light, International relationship strained, I cannot find any good things done by this man.

  • Tears of shame!:

    We should soften our emotions just because the PM shed some tears. What is there to cry? The siblings have been at odds for a long time. LKY cried and now LHL has to complete the cycle.

    The government should NEVER have got embroiled in this saga. It is a private matter. What the younger siblings decide to do with the house when it becomes vacant is up to them. The younger sibling were RIGHT to bring this out into the open on FB because the local media is all controlled by the government. This should be an eye-opener to all of us because it shows how our lives are controlled. If one of us had commented against the PM on this issue, our comments would never appear in the local media but we may be sued.

    What next? Is LHL going to make the Istana a national shrine to himself and his wife? I FEAR that one day we may all be praying to the ALMIGHTLY LEEs for our well-being. Enough is Enough.

    Let the younger siblings do what they want to do with the residence. I am sure your mother will be very happy when this house is DEMOLISHED.

  • Pioneer Citizen:

    My parents used to tell me that the eldest grandson holds the same status of the youngest son of grandparents. In Chinese culture, the eldest in the family has immense responsibilities of taking care of younger siblings especially when parents are dead. I remember my eldest brother who sacrificed everything in life so that his younger siblings could have a better life. Although he is dead and gone, I still think fondly of him every day. Respect has to be earned.

    Mr Prime Minister, there is no one to blame. You are in full control of the situation and you could have made the situation right. No matter how naughty your younger siblings may be, you have a responsibility to take care of them.

    Proverb: “As you sow, so shall you reap” The personal consequences of one’s actions are in proportion to the good or bad intentions towards others.

    I cannot teach you how to be a big brother. You must know how to act and behave like one.

    I think the tears was because he was caught through the short and curly. It shocked him that his siblings did it to him.

    Now he is trying to pass it off as being exonerated simply becuase he listed his actions in Parliament.

    In fact there are more questions after all the statements by all these Ministers. It did not resolve the situation–as it was not the forum to do so. To therefore say that it has cleared the air and let’s move on is ridiculous.

    The only way to settle this matter of abuse of power is through the Courts. Part of that abuse of power has already been proven through his use of Parliament and have his Ministers to support him. s

    Every event is seen from a personal confrontational perspective. The Singapore perspective never seem to feature in their thinking or schemes.

    That is why the PM and the PAP should be removed.

    There are exceptions to the rule when comes to suing for defamation , apparently. Hence, because of feeeel, he is feeling his father and siblings, he won’t sue – read : not because it will make him look badder wolf than he is now.

    But do the siblings feeeel his “tears”? Is he believable when he can’t be trusted by the siblings?

    Parliament went on an emotional assault, can’t handle the facts and the critics lah, aided by mr goh, the house “expendables”.

    Members of the house all had been issued with tissues to add to the drama.

    At the end of the day, we are probably witnessing the political sophistry of abusive power in private and now, public arena.

    He had organically manipulated state apparatus to bully his siblings on private matters and when his siblings blew the whistle on him, he was forced to, organically manipulate state apparatus(double abuse of power) and this time, he abused his “tear duds” instead of defending the integrity of his govnment on his usual punishing platform – the court room.

    So in effect, he lied when his government said – all are equal before the law

But he was someone else’s brother, and husband and father. Those, also, whom LKY put away for 24 years or more. And those you hanged and are hanging because found with that weightage of drugs, etc. (Hey, one day your own son might get caught also with that.)

    PAP loves to play the sympathy card don’t they? I remember seeing Lee Boon Yang doing the crocodile tears act some years ago
    =========

    It was Lim Boon Heng now chairman of Temasek Holdings he had praised in his speech on Monday 3 July 2017. Anyone remember why he cried? Always give others a chance. But didn’t for a teenage boy and twice in two years sent him into IMH in solitary confinement to break his mind with light one 24/7 for about 2 weeks. Sleeping on a cold floor in a ward of really mentality sick patients making noises to keep him awake.

    And that was after he had destroyed Roy Ngerng YL’s good health career with accolades form the HPB. Very touching he is when we reflect back not these passed cases.

    So who in his right mind will believe that he was always cool and collected like in the public eye from parliament now when he was dealing with his younger siblings. He sounds like he does not have any weaknesses at all. Perfection to the core? But he slapped S. Dhanabalan didn’t he. And had to be made to apologise! “Great” chap I agreed! Not too great perfect to be true?

Can’t go down in history as a son of a super-duper papa who staged for him to finally succeeded him. Only to be fallen by siblings to be disgraced internationally in disgrace can he? Your guess is as good as mine.
