Lee Kuan Yew’s 'Will specifically accepts and acknowledges that demolition may not take place'?Lee Kuan Yew’s 'Will specifically accepts and acknowledges... I refer to the article “Oxley Road dispute: Lee Kuan Yew’s final will ‘accepts’ Oxley house demolition may not take place, says Indranee Rajah” (Straits Times, Jun 23). It states that: “Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s final will specifically accepts and acknowledges that demolition of his Oxley Road house...

Ho Ching speaks for the first timeHo Ching speaks for the first time The next salvo in the ongoing saga is now fired by none other than Ho Ching herself. Seems like every night someone from the famiLEE are saying something or another, only for the person to refute and allege something else, and on and on it continues. Ho Ching had thus far remained quiet, but a week after this feud broke,...

DPM Teo Chee Hean has a direct line to LKY in the netherworld?DPM Teo Chee Hean has a direct line to LKY in the netherworld? Despite Lee Kuan Yew (LKY) having repeatedly and openly stated that he wanted the house to be demolished, Teo believes that LKY would now be amenable to preserving it. Now, imagine this: if these PAP ministers can claim to speak for LKY after his death and defy his wish to perpetrate the Party's interests, how much...

I refer to the article “DPM Teo responds to ST’s article, said ministers cannot avoid taking responsibility for making the required decisions on public interest” (theonlinecitizen, Jun 21). It states that “Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean has issued a statement in response to an opinion piece by Han Fook...

21 Reasons Why Tharman's Call for Confidence in LHL's Team is Misplaced21 Reasons Why Tharman's Call for Confidence in LHL's Team... In his Facebook post, DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam called on Singaporeans to “have confidence” in the present system of governance, adding, “You can count on PM Lee Hsien Loong and all of us in his team for that.” To have confidence in the government, Singaporeans need transparency. So before the DPM asks for...

Why ban e-cigarettes? Why ban e-cigarettes? Since June 13, the proposal to raise the minimum legal age for smoking from 18 to 21 and to prohibit the purchase, use and possession of vaporizers and e-cigarettes have been up for public consultation. I support the increase of the minimum legal age for smoking. After all, I am sure many of you know of people who started...

Can DPM Tharman address possible conflict in the appointment of the AG?Can DPM Tharman address possible conflict in the appointment... Tharman has just posted a lengthy note stating that they (the PAP) "have a system to preserve the rule of law and of policy-making that balances public against private interests." In that case, can he comment on the appointment of Lee Hsien Loong's personal lawyer, Lucien Wong, as AG? Was the Cabinet consulted...

Lee Hsien Yang should be accorded airtime in Parliament on 3rd JulyLee Hsien Yang should be accorded airtime in Parliament on... Some Singaporeans have asked about Parliamentary Select Committees. What are they? Parliament hosts powers to appoint Select Committees of MPs to look at issues in depth, including calling for evidence and summoning witnesses if necessary. My WP colleagues and I have filed a number of parliamentary questions that...

DPM Tharman urges Singaporeans to have confidenceDPM Tharman urges Singaporeans to have confidence Have confidence, folks. I have to say there is no mystery as to why a Ministerial committee was set up to look into the options for 38 Oxley Road. DPM Teo, who chairs Cabinet on matters to do with the house, has explained straightforwardly why he set it up. We in fact do this often - setting up special committees...

Open Parliamentary enquiry and not just Q&A in ParliamentOpen Parliamentary enquiry and not just Q&A in Parliament Dear PM Lee, I refer to your "Ministerial Statement" made this evening to the grievous and serious charges made against not only yourself but that of State Institutions abusing powers and being corrupt!

What on earth does PM Lee mean when he says he is "lifting the whip" for the parliamentary sitting on 3 July? Lifting the whip is only for voting on bills.

PM Must Convene Official Inquiry, Not Just Parliamentary DebatePM Must Convene Official Inquiry, Not Just Parliamentary... The matter of PM Lee Hsien Loong's dispute with his siblings should be heard by a properly convened Commission of Inquiry (COI) rather than be debated in Parliament. The SDP stated in our media release (15 June 2017) that “PM Lee must address the specific allegations of public concern in a clear and transparent...

Calvin Cheng: PM Lee is damned lousy at 'abusing powers'Calvin Cheng: PM Lee is damned lousy at 'abusing powers' Honestly, if PM Lee 'abused his power' to only get a deed of gift from Lawrence Wong, and to set up a 'secret committee' that everyone and his dog now knows about, he is damn lousy at abusing power. Look around the region and the wider world to see what an 'abuse of power' looks like. For example, sacking the FBI...

Lee Hsien Yang: LHL refused to answer a simple questionLee Hsien Yang: LHL refused to answer a simple question Lee Hsien Loong now claims, “My father left the property at 38 Oxley Road to me, as part of my equal share of his estate. But my siblings were not happy about it.” Wei Ling and I never had any objection to LHL receiving an equal share of the estate. We object to LHL's flip-flopping about Lee Kuan Yew's demolition...
