Oxleygate: ‘the curious incident’

“The dog did nothing in the night-time.”

“That was the curious incident.”

The real “scandal” is that DPM Teo and Lawrence Wong did not protect their reputations the PAP way, when the younger Lees defamed them by accusing them of doing their brother’s bidding, not PM not threatening to take legal action against his siblings, but doing a wayang in parly.

ESM Goh said in parly:

[I]t is clear that their goal is to bring Lee Hsien Loong down as PM, regardless of the huge collateral damage suffered by the Government and Singaporeans. It is now no more a cynical parlour game. If the Lee siblings choose to squander the good name and legacy of Lee Kuan Yew, and tear their relationship apart, it is tragic but a family affair. But if in the process of their self destruction, they destroy Singapore too, that is a public affair.

Now isn’t the attempt to destroy S’pore by making allegations against other ministers, not just their brother the PM, a good enough reason for said ministers to have demanded an apology and sued the younger Lees for defamation, if no grovelling apology was made? And what about their personal reputations? Why liddat?

After ESM’s Goh’s speech, Lee Hsien Yang posted

“We are not making a criticism of the Government of Singapore, as we made clear from the beginning. What we have said is that we are disturbed by the character, conduct, motives and leadership of our brother, Lee Hsien Loong.”

Talk Cock Sing Song King Lee Hsien Yang talking cock again above. Other examples

— Reading Lee Hsien Yang’s repeated “clarifications” on FB to his earlier FB “clarifications” (example on whether his wife’s law firm was used in the final will: he said “No” emphatically, but then went to explain what they did*)I can understand why the committee wants a statutory declaration and I can understand why he hasn’t given one.

— Talking cock about the will

— Didn’t do his job as executor


Huh? I tot the younger Lees were making allegations that the ministerial committee set up to consider the fate of LKY’s house was doing their brother’s bidding, not making independent judgements and findings? That not attacking govt meh?

DPM Teo rightly responded:

“With regard to Dr Lee Wei Ling and Mr Lee Hsien Yang’s allegations against the Ministerial Committee, public agencies and public officers, the Government has already responded comprehensively to all of them in Parliament,”

This shows that, while the PM may have felt that he could not sue his siblings, DPM Teo or Lawrence Wong should have had no such qualms about suing PM’s siblings for the good of S’pore and their good name. They should have asked the younger Lees to withdraw their allegations against them, and apologise. Failing which, they’d sue the Lees.

While I’ve argued that that the cabinet full of Oxbridge men royally screwed up

Yesterday’s wayang and the preceding Lee family row could have been avoided if PM (from Cambridge) had not have gone to the cabinet about his doubts about the circumstances around the execution of the will and the cabinet committee headed by another Cambridge man had not decided to act on PM’s doubts.

DPM Teo, Lawrence Wong, and, possibly, other ministers should have been prepared to take legal action to protect the reputation of the cabinet and themselves. They didn’t and that me is the real scandal. It now seems that this White Horse and White Mare have privileges not extended to people like Roy Ngerng. Who else does do these privileges extend to?

Even now, the Princess of Oxley Road is attacking Shanmugam, raking over the ashes of her allegation of his conflicts of interest. Shouldn’t he be telling her to “apologise or else”, instead of sitting down and keeping quiet? She that special isit?

Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): “Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”

Holmes: “To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”

Gregory: “The dog did nothing in the night-time.”

Holmes: “That was the curious incident.”

    Fact is, most Singaporeans yawn at this issue as they cannot be bothered.

    He’s not called a liar for nothing, misleading the target audience by being ever ready to tell only half the story.

    Cynical,….save your energy lah,….most already have the perception that he( the naked emperor ) is the “liar” lah.

    That the Party’s reputation has been “stained”..not by the siblings,..but by the naked emperor and his closest consorts and eunuchs themselves.

    Look how “calm” the waters are now,….nobody seems to be “bothered” externally,…but I am sure , many felt “disgusted” internally.

    Just wait for the next “erection”. Many Oppos are now “polishing up their guns and preparing quality ammos” to “shoot” come “erection” time.

    Meanwhile,…the Naked emperor and his consorts and eunuchs can , ( for now)….”ownself think ownself” that all is “Over and answered”.

    The thing is, your enemies who are shooting their mouths off are your boss’s siblings so that complicates matters.

    If the ministers all end up ganging up on the 2 of them and suing then it will be interesting to see how this court case will go. How many skeletons will be tumbling out of the closet? How long will the court case go for?

    What else might be revealed that none of us even have any idea of?
