Dr Tan Cheng Bock: Lee Hsien Loong is not Lee Kuan Yew

Dr Tan at NUSS

Answering to a question from the audience about what he feels about the difference between the new and old generation of leaders of People’s Action Party (PAP), Dr Tan Cheng Bock shared that the leadership of current Prime Minister Lee Hsieng Loong is unlike his father, late Lee Kuan Yew in many ways.

Dr Tan was sharing his views on the elected presidency and what it means for Singapore forward at the Kent Ridge Guild House, in a forum by Future of Singapore (FOSG) on Sunday (16 Dec).

FOSG is a local registered company which aims to spur discussions among Singaporeans on how to move the country forward by sharing views and information from subject matter experts and influential figures.

Dr Tan, a former PAP MP and near-winner in the Presidential Election 2011 shared that he had not been a compliant MP for the party who does not toe the party line and will always air his views.

The only thing that was keeping him there was that the PAP leaders did not expect him, the only backbencher to be elected by the PAP cadre to go into the Central Executive Committee, something which should not be possible in the PAP system as members are told who they should vote for. In that particular year that he was elected, the nomination was left open for nomination from the floor, he was nominated and won very big.

Dr Tan shared that many times the PAP leaders told that they will be sacking him but never did so because they knew that he has no hidden agenda and that his agenda is very clear, which is the country comes first.

“When I always stand up, they are very shocked why I vote against.” Citing the Nominated Members of Parliament(NMPs) which he voted against,  saying that the people do not want these NMPs to speak on their hobby subjects.

He then turned to state that he also publicly objected the appointment of Ho Ching as the head of Temasek Holdings.

“The wife of the Prime Minister should be an important position, there must be no element of conflict, should be someone who is very neutral but we put her in charge of a government institution like Temasek. Very very dangerous, I see it but they don’t.”

He said that he feels that there will be a lot of conflict of interest and he thinks history has shown that there have been conflicts of interest.

Worried leadership because all of the same mold

Dr Tan commented that the current leadership is worried, worried because their radar is out of place.

“There is a lot of difference between here. Leadership very stable during Lee Kuan Yew. He had many scouts, they are all not from the same mold, all from the grounds, later on, they had a lot of academics from the civl service.”

“Lee Kuan Yew took the trouble to get someone to come and find , not only me but a group of us.”

They all think very all together, because they came from the same mold. Told many of my friends, if they are all one kind, they are going to die.

But when you have not many options to take, that will be disastrous, the current leadership is very different from the time I was.

Dr Tan recalls being told by LKY, that he doesn’t want Yes man. “So that’s why I went in, although I have a very checked history from the days of army.”

Dr Tan also shared that he got a shock of his life when the Oxley saga was debated in parliament.

He said that the Parliament is not the right place, “why did you allow it? Should go to court to settle it.”

“What does it indicate for the leadership, if many of us were in parliament, we would have objected to it. Things have changed.”

LKY will never run away from a fight

Citing the debates in the amendments to the elected presidency, Dr Tan said, ”Lee Kuan Yew will never run away from any fight. Even if he was in the wrong he will challenge you.”

He noted that in the first debate on the matter, PM Lee said something about taking an advice from the Attorney General, however, when the matter of advice was questioned by Member of Parliament, Sylvia Lim, it was Deputy Teo Chee Hean who answered on his behalf. And when DPM Teo was questioned on the matter by Ms Lim, Minister Chan Chun Sing answered on his behalf. And when Minister Chan was questioned by Ms Lim, it was Minister of Law and Home Affairs who answered on his behalf.

Dr Tan said, “To me this is ridiculous, you make a stand, you answer for it, you don’t run away from it.”

Dr Tan also recalled another experience during his days in Parliament being walloped as a defiant PAP MP.

At one of the parliamentary sessions, Dr Tan took issue with the primary school text books produced by the Ministry of Education. Producing the textbooks at parliament, Dr Tan took out a page from the primary school textbook and asked the Ministers and MPs if they knew what “Vegetative Propagation”, and questioned the ministry on its concept of teaching.

After his speech, Dr Goh Keng Swee who was then Minister of Education, chased him around the house and reprimanded him, “Young man, you did a wrong thing, don’t scold me in public. But you did the right thing, I will get it changed.”

“This is the quality of our old leader, prepared to accept that they are wrong and ready to change.” said Dr Tan.

    The conflict of interests is too glaring; so glaring that PAP is going to lose critical number of votes in the next GE!

    Ho Ching must ‘retire’ into the background. If she continues her tour in TH, it will affect the PM and his party!

    There is no real need for Ho Ching to remain in TH!

  • Recruitment Exercise?:

    Dr Tan CB can easily recruit enough candidates to start a party and stand for Election in the next GE.

    For all you know, there could be even be some ex PAP MPs joining him to correct what they deem is very wrong in today’s Gahment!

    Dr Tan CB could emerge as the next Opposition Leader or even PM!

    This is the man that could have been President in 2017 but was ‘clinically denied’.

    We now have a President that only take care of the Istana gardens!

    Singaporeans simply love Dr Tan C B for being upfront and his no nonsense attitude.

    Singsporeans are happy that Dr Tan CB has shared a few juicy snippets and insights into how the minds of the old guards especially LKY and GKS worked. Using such standards to compare, PM Lee and his ministers come nowhere close to the old guards. They are just a bunch of overpaid pusillanimous, clueless and shameless politicians living in ivory towers. The more Dr Tan CB revealed, the better it will be for voters making informed choices come GE 2020. Dr Tan has lent a great hand to the Opposition with his scathing report on the present PAP government.

  • Tan CB, a plp is plp till dead:

    TCB, seriously you think lky is what u think he is. Your view is exactly one who is a downright deadbeat plp and nothing else. You believe your contemporary and fellow professional is what lky said he is and kept detained without trial when his wife was having their son and has desperately appealing to her fellow medics and academic but where r u as a fellow medic and where r Tommy, History Prof Wong ( suicided forcreasons undisclosed; perhaps guilts?), Prof Lim CY her fellow academics. Perhaps Like Yales Greed and fear made one suffer temporary most probably permanent amnesia of the academic ethics and ethos where human values prevails and to be ever ready and not to cold storaged it until safe time when the depraved starts to be loud and look righteous.
    Yes one thing u r right . they are diffe rent. One is a vicious rogue while the other is a nfi imbercile. Weren’t you still in the Parliament when your classmate the seat warmer succumbed to plp when he was doubly confirmed by the electorate of his leadership. Perhaps this was the fore sight of GohbKS when he referred to Rafflesians as …. and his alma mater as honest businessmen. Surely honesty in business is a much forgotten word as in most other profession for plpism destroyed them all for one plp only for easy gain as big as it can and a man of Sr Gohbintellect he would know but the implication of his label cheat must be the extreme kind unmentionables. But no Rafflesians including your adored boss, your succumbed for undisclosed reasons classmate and yourself stood up. No wonder RI has been nicely coined as rotten idiots by present days SINners. So a plp will be a plp till death. R u any different, Dr Tan Cheng Bok?

    He noted that in the first debate on the matter, PM Lee said something about taking an advice from the Attorney General, however,

    And when Minister Chan was questioned by Ms Lim, it was Minister of Law and Home Affairs who answered on his behalf.

    1st debate, chief clown, son of departed pap evil lky, lied about taking advice from ag.

    BUT when caught with pants down by WP Ms Sylvia Lim, deputy clown aka deputy liar pinocchio, came to the rescue.

    BUT when deputy clown aka deputy liar pinnochio was caught with pants down, bugs bunny aka kee chiu the assistant clown came to the rescue.

    BUT when bugs bunny aka kee chiu the assistant clown was caught with pants down, ah neh the divorcee forked tongue snake aka deputy assistant clown came to the rescue.

    although chief clown, deputy clown, assistant clown, deputy assistant clown, all have spoken, NOT one was able to cover the 1st lie about ag.

    THIS is the gist of the whole pap lie about reserving elected presidency for the malay race when they actually wanted to select INDIAN who covers head with bedsheet to deprive citizens of their preferred choice Dr TCB.

    can pap liars continue to rule? we don’t think so. GE2015 was a fluke shot for chief clown and his group of deputy clown, assistant clown, deputy assistant clown. they know, deep in their evil hearts, GE2021 shall be different. they may prepare to run road. BUT we ensure they pay for their lies and their evil. we ensure for sure.

  • WP is useless:

    What Dr Tan is trying to do should have been started 10 years ago by the WP.

    Mr Low is has been overly cautious in reaching out to Singaporeans in championing for working class and exposing PAP’s wrong policies and million dollar salaries.

    PAP has treated Singaporeans as dumb people and used all resources to brainwash the people into voting for PAP. Singaporeans are feeling the pinch now, but the civil servants and PA people in community centres will do anything for a packet of free chicken rice from PAP.

    WP has done nothing much to turn the PAP tide. I think people voted for WP because there was no one else in the opposition camp, who were capable.

    So SAD !!

    THE FOURTH GENERATION OF LEADERS WAITING to move up the stage already is a load of rotten garbage. They are in stable mode of more of the same – no change of policy – they won’t stir the stew in the pot – not wanting and fearful of creating DISCONTINUITIES according to Kee Chiu.

    I am more amazed than amused by this unenforced confession of public disclosure.

    To me, it is arrogance exceeding ignorance in this lot. Anyone remember Liu Tuck Yew’s famous electoral boasting of 2011 when he said PAPpys are like tall trees, foreigners traveling from afar comes in to admire us, opposition are like POISONOUS MUSHROOMS feeding on fallen trees.

    The irony of comedy is that he chose not to contest the 2015 election and abandoned his transport ministerial position to close his chapter of political career (of PAPpys tall tree in metaphor). In short, a failed exit of ownself-cheque-ownself unacceptable performance.

    Opposition politics must be laughing with glee but fortunately no one humiliate Liu at his political departure with this analogy, MRT/Transport Ministry is like DEADWOODS feeding the mushroom, the thriving mushrooms of course knows it all along, THE DEADWOODS (PAPpys) in the Transport Ministry DOES NOT KNOW – even now!!

    To avoid doubt, just ask that harakiri Cow whose staunched religious ferver allows him to preach suicide for opposition politics for alleged shortcomings but his harakiri wishing and demand DOES NOT APPLY to him and his fellow DEADWOODS.

    Why bother whether Lee Hsien Loong is like Lee Kuan Yew or not like Lee Kuan Yew. If there is no Lee Kuan Yew there would be no Lee Hsien Loong. That would be better for everyone.

    I wonder if Tan Cheng Bok ever ponder whether It was Communist China Mao Zedong who start his One Child Policy first or Lee Kuan Yew with his Stop At Two population policy? Who’s copying who? Or it’s just a coincident – a case of great mind think alike – leading to a severe dysfunctional population unable to cope with replenishing the aging segment with young working adults many years down the road in the case of Singapore. China with a larger population many times the size of Singapore will have a similar problem like Singapore soon enough.

    Remember LKY ‘Use your hand campaign’ Maybe that’s his idea of controlling the birth-rate. Now his PM son Lee Hsien Loong is promoting viagra to expand the population.

    Of course, Lee Hsien Loong is no Lee Kuan Yew. Stupid!

    http://singaporedesk.bxxxsxxt.com.au/2015/07/the-slap-that-was-heard-around-world.html?m=1

    In 1990, an incident occurred in a pre-cabinet meeting which was the beginning of entrenching further among the many in the core executive, resistance to Lee Hsien Loong’s long term ambitions for prime ministership. Prior to this meeting Lee Hsien Loong had gone to the office of Richard Hu, the Minister of Finance, and removed a number of files without Hu’s permission. At that time Lee’s office was on the 48th floor of what is now Temasek Tower and Hu’s was on the 50th floor.
    At the pre-cabinet meeting Hu took Lee to task for doing this and was supported by Tony Tan. Lee’s response was aggressive and insulting, he directly insulted Tan and Hu, a man of his father’s age. This was a double insult to Hu, who was Lee’s superior in cabinet and a person of an age who should of itself deserve respect in Chinese society. Suppiah Dhanabalan intervened and chastised Lee for his behaviour, demanding that he apologise to Hu, withdraw his remarks and not interfere in other minister’s portfolios. A heated exchange occurred into which a number of other issues intruded and eventually Lee lost his temper, and reportedly reached across the table and slapped Dhanabalan across the face.”
    The long & short of it – The slap took place in 1990. Dhanabalan left in 1991 after the GE. Later admitted due to disagreements. LHL diagnosed with cancer in 1992.
    The father had to reconstitute the cabinet filled it full of yes-persons & seconded military men who obeyed orders & not talk back. It took 12 years for it to be done giving Goh Chok Tong a reprieve as a seat warmer while allowing LHL to recuperate & get a remission from his cancer.
    And that is why there’s high ministerial salaries – to keep people beholden & not to agitate against LHL. The high salaries are an opiate drug to swing ‘loyalty’ to LHL. As LHL can’t take dissent due to his insecured personality & the fear that any problems would trigger his cancer cells.
    That is why LKY couldn’t stepped away & had to hold LHL’s hands until he died literally on the job. Many people faulted LKY for receiving MP pay while he was incapacitated but it’s not the money! He just couldn’t dismount from the tiger he cultivated. And he set S’pore for future failure when he appointed his son.

    And this is the fate Singaporeans must go through now for not learning the lessons of history and stop a tyrant from imposing his will on the country and people for 50 years.

    From Ming to Qing to KMT until it was stopped in Taiwan, the sooner real democracy is enshrined in the Constitution, the better off the country and people will be.

    There were many worst political leaders resulted in violent deaths caused by their own rich or poor people, eunuchs, friends and opponents throughout thousand years of history even until this millennium, so what have today politicians learnt? Who would be next to crown the world worst again? Politicians with courage and fear not to raise concern and welfare of the nation are to be commended and recognised for their righteous and flawless character.

  • Dosh:

    Tan CB, a plp is plp till dead:
    TCB, seriously you think lky is what u think he is. Your view is exactly one who is a downright deadbeat plp and nothing else. You believe your contemporary and fellow professional is what lky said he is and kept detained without trial when his wife was having their son and has desperately appealing to her fellow medics and academic but where r u as a fellow medic and where r Tommy, History Prof Wong ( suicided forcreasons undisclosed; perhaps guilts?), Prof Lim CY her fellow academics. Perhaps Like Yales Greed and fear made one suffer temporary most probably permanent amnesia of the academic ethics and ethos where human values prevails and to be ever ready and not to cold storaged it until safe time when the depraved starts to be loud and look righteous.
    Yes one thing u r right . they are diffe rent. One is a vicious rogue while the other is a nfi imbercile. Weren’t you still in the Parliament when your classmate the seat warmer succumbed to plp when he was doubly confirmed by the electorate of his leadership. Perhaps this was the fore sight of GohbKS when he referred to Rafflesians as …. and his alma mater as honest businessmen. Surely honesty in business is a much forgotten word as in most other profession for plpism destroyed them all for one plp only for easy gain as big as it can and a man of Sr Gohbintellect he would know but the implication of his label cheat must be the extreme kind unmentionables. But no Rafflesians including your adored boss, your succumbed for undisclosed reasons classmate and yourself stood up. No wonder RI has been nicely coined as rotten idiots by present days SINners. So a plp will be a plp till death. R u any different, Dr Tan Cheng Bok?

    Response:

    Dr Adrian Tan Cheng Bock is after all a PAP sympathiser.

    I’d leave it at that. It would be totally acceptable for him to rebut me.

    Never trust the PAP.

    You will Pay and Pay. Then, Pass Away PAINFULLY!

    cdrvftbgy:
    LHL how can be the same as LKY? One is destroyer, the other is builder.

    LKY didn’t build everything. the british built a lot from 1819 to 1965, LKY merely maintain that lot and build some more and then start to deteriorate it by installing LHL.
    LKY Didn’t build EVERYTHINGGGGGG.

  • Cheng Bock is Right!:

    PM should retire from politics.

    Should not be made Senior Minister and then Minister Mentor.

    Defeats the purpose of naming a new PM if Ah Loong is still around!

    TCB is right, but so what can he do about it? After going through the long winded process of sticking his neck half out, what has changed? nothing. The clown is as corrupt as ever.
    TcB is stupid to trust the PAP process. It’s for wayang only. Nothing will change in a self check self system.

    Dafts have given PaP the blank cheque. Such corrupted outcome is expected. Dafts already dug their own graves when they voted for a PAP only parliament.
