Why is the Lee family burdening Singaporeans with their family feud?

The Year of the Pig will likely herald more turbulent times for the Lee family.

With the two children of late Lee Kuan Yew, Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling very much back in the fray, with the upcoming contempt of court proceedings against LKY’s blue-eyed grandson, Li Shengwu and the latest revelation that his mother, Lee Suet Fern may also be dragged into the picture, what else can we expect but turmoil and unrest for the year ahead?

There are four factors that make this an undue and unnecessary burden and distraction.

One: The LKY factor. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that his father wouldn’t have wanted things to pan out the way they did. So why drag it on? No one is doing more than the Lee family itself to tarnish and betray the legacy of Lee Kuan Yew. If Big Brother, as leader of the country, does not want to let it go, what are the implications and repercussions?

Two: Family over country. PM Lee can leave things to his lawyers and the courts but can he possibly also outsource the emotional and psychological scars? Running a country is a big enough task. Having to cope with the distraction of a family feud only makes it even more formidable. Is that fair to Singaporeans?

Three: A saga the neighbours lap up as a soap opera. Already Hong Kong media has gone to town with its reporting and analysis of what is happening. A Lee family in tatters is seen as a microcosm of a Singapore that is on shaky ground. Our neighbours, whether friends or foes, will milk it and lap it up for what it’s worth.

Four: Sowing division among Singaporeans. Who’s in the right, who’s in the wrong, who’s vindictive, who’s the schemer? This is one issue that compels Singaporeans to take sides – there is disagreement among family members, friends and colleagues. This places unnecessary burden on the people. If Lee Hsien Yang decides to enter politics, lo and behold, it’s a whole new ballgame and Singaporeans will be further divided. There’s also swirling speculation that as predicted by Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling but denied by PM Lee, his son Li Hongyi will be thrust into politics. If that should happen, the soap opera will turn into a Shakespearean drama.

If no family is bigger than Singapore, why is one family sucking up all the oxygen and placing undue and unnecessary burden on the country and its people?

    Please lah, what distraction? Every family also got problem. You want pay attention to Lee family problem, your choice. Don’t blame anyone for anything. Nobody is perfect. Despite their flaws, the Lee family has still proven themselves as people of highest calibre to lead the country.

    @PC Ong

    True, every family has their own problems, disputes and bad-eggs.
    But every family dont go public and air their dirty laundry.
    Just becus theirs is a prominent family, doesnt mean we should be subjected to every bit of it.
    No Thanks.

    Oh, never mind them – they are just kids.

    Kids crave and seek attention. Especially in the age of the Internet when it is so difficult to be heard, let alone seen, having to fight with everyone else to attract eyeballs. Unlike in the days when their dad ruled the roost, when all media is leemedia, at his beck and call.

    So, just leave them be, let them clobber and shred one another to pieces. And peace will eventually reign, hallelujah praise the lord almighty, ahem.

    Like Ken Watanabe in the Godzilla movie said “Let them fight”. Does anyone care? I don’t!
    I’m more inclined to find out more dirt & revelations being dished out from this coming no-holds-barred-fight. It’s a full-blown family civil war with both sides knowing each other’s dirty secrets & privy to hidden closet skeletons. Lee Hsien Yang with his sister Lee Wei-Ling will be fiesty opponents never seen before in S’pore’s political history. No opposition rollovers like JB Jeyaretnam, Chee Soon Juan & the like who could be easily handled & rendered impotent by the State organs. Lee
    Hsien Yang could be just like his mom, the late Kwa Geok Choo. His mom lurks behind LKY in the background but whatever govt policies & S’pore laws passed had her distinctive touch & legal thought process. Just look at the Woman’s Charter passed under S’pore Parliament. It had a distinctive legal viewpoint from a woman’s perspective. No man in his right frame of mind would have come up with this law which not only protect women’s rights but giving her the protection of the courts to enforce her rights.
    The bilingual policy also had Kwa Geok Choo’s hidden & distinctive touch. Why? Harry Lee was a hardcore Baba – he only spoke English & Malay until his mid-Twenties. It was only after when he entered politics did he strived to learn Mandarin. He later changed his name to LKY. Ask yourself who prompted him – did he do it by himself? Ha-ha-ha-ha!
    And don’t forget, Lee Hsien Yang’s paternal grandmother didn’t considered herself as Chinese but as Peranankan. She even wrote a Peranankan cookbook detailing Peranankan cuisine, Nyonya recipes & in the 1st print run, Wee Kim See wrote the forewords, called her “cousin”. No Baba could have come up with the Bilingual policy. Only a legally trained mind with a good understanding of Chinese Chauvinistic feelings & cultural learning could come up with such a populist policy to gain political votes. If you can understand this, you would guess who.
    And one of Mommy’s brother was a leading Internal Security Head. He would be privy to a lot of skeleton kept in the closet of political figures. If Tony Tan’s example is any guide, you could guess which camp the related elites would be closer to. Tony was put to pasture as the Dragon Prince ascended, Why? Although Tony was a firm favourite as a seat warmer, but that role was given to Woody Goh. And Woody Goh’s wife & Kwa Geok Choo’s worked in the same office. Don’t forget Tony & Kwa Geok Choo’s were related – Tony’s uncle Tan Chin Tuan’s wife & Kwa Geok Choo’s mom were blood-related sisters whose surname was Wee. Was it done to protect Tony from possible friction with her son? Was the Presidency role for Tony fair…

    Correction: Wee Kim See – Wee Kim Wee (ex-S’pore President)
    - Cont’d -
    Was the Presidency role for Tony fair compensation for foresaking the seat warming almost one & a half decades earlier?
    And Lee Wei Ling is no pushover either. She singlehandedly ended Phillip Yeo’s career in guiding S’pore’s Biomedical research drive. Anyone would understand Phillip Yeo’s embittered state of mind & recent comments after he was cut down from his high flying roles.
    She called S’pore’s Biomedical research for what it was – a lot of money spent with outcomes uncertain, whether any research value came out of it. She even got the State organs to go after one of the researchers all the way to the UK for ethical violations.
    This is a fight with no winners! A lot of collateral damage & at a time when S’pore is facing headwinds from the end of Globalisation, a hostile neighbour knowing our Strategic weaknesses & doing everything to exploit it – it’s a sideshow that S’poreans can’t afford but egos are too big, opponents equally matched & no ounce of mercy will be given. It’s a battle to the death! S’poreans will be like ants trampled underfoot in the fight between elephants.

    1) Would appointing once a personal lawyer as AG a conflict of interests? If elected by independent committee is okay but here in this country everyone knows how, who, when, where, why.

    2) Now since the can of corn flake with interest is opened & used like a big cannon, lets not just stop at this case. There are thousand cases to investigate on. Oh dear, pity those trees, woods, forests & jungles.

    3) Trees are part of an important environmental components in generating oxygen, therefore we would want to know why NEA is not going after organizations not promoting paperless use? Instead going after smokers fining $200 each caught, small fishes. And let off the big fish like AGC? Can fine heavier for big fishes, isn’t it?

    4) NEA should also close down all print media including theShitTimes for killing the forest. Go paperless, go read social media like TRE, TOC. Priority all wrong going after smokers, dogs, cats, reptiles, rat, & lizards. Really useless bunch.

    Perhaps ‘clan mentality’ is a factor with both brothers and sister. And one of their fundamental flaws is hubris mixed with the delusional belief that they are untouchable. Upon closer examination, it seems to be part of their DNA.
    And these aren’t the neighbors down the street. These are people who have control over the economy of our whole country. When their unfolding dramas reveal hollow character, motivated by sociopathic self-interest…it’s time to pay attention & read Arthur Miller’s wonderful play “All My Sons” When you serve your own family or clan at the expense of the larger society and make excuses for the harm you cause, this is the outcome.

    Under LKY there is no corruption and efficiency is 100 per cent. Singapore strives on 100 per cent efficiency.

    Now under Pinky there is corruption (Keppel Group) and there is clear cut inefficiency (MRT and others). And Pinky does not have the guts to sack inefficient Ministers . Instead just move on and we Singaporeans suffers.

    Its time we take action to end this nonsense and work towards top standards. If Pinky cannot do the job, lets sack him and get others to do the job whether its Dr Tan CB or Chee SJ or Lim Tean or Sylvia or Kenneth or anybody.

    lky didn’t drop spectacles. because he ain’t that good. if not for Dr Toh CC, Dr Goh KS, and such good men, lky maybe just a low down lawyer. because lky was afraid Dr Gok KS, Dr Toh CC, and such can overtake him, he let them go citing their old age even though lky himself stayed until ICU.

    anyway, clap clap clap. his family disintegrates within a few years. in any Chinese society, or is he malay too?, such a failure of the family is a testament to the utter failure of the father. in this case, lky is truly an utter fail.

    I agree with the writer. We should not let other countries sensationalise it from how we respond.
    In the first place, if no one challenged the will when it was first presented till the person passes away, nothing should change. I heard LKY said he wanted the house demolished. LKY, I believe would have made it loud and clear to the public if he had reconsidered his decision. I did not hear him saying this. Secondly, it’s a private will. I am not a fan of LKY but it’s his private house anyway isn’t it. Why play up the fact of converting a private house to something public whatever we call it ?

    In reversing the course of argument, how can they now find LSF guilty of unprofessionalism if LKY’s final will was never challenged in open court by anyone in the 1st place ? Someone should be brave enough to challenge that there is impropriety in the preparation of LKY’s final will. Otherwise it can be interpreted that someone is being mischievous in trying to abuse the whole legal system isn’t it ?

    “How many public man-hours (official working time) and how much money in terms of salaries, usage of facilities and utilities) have been spent by the AGC in researching, collating, filing, checking, analysing, interpreting, drafting, reading, writing, proof-reading, re-writing, proof-reading again and got it approved before finally confirming and sending the 500-page complaint to the Law Society?

    Other questions people want to ask:

    1. How come the AGC is actively involved in such cases that are directed towards the PM’s relatives only?

    2. Do they really matter to the general public or only to one or a small group of people?

    3. Is the AGC being ordered by someone to take legal actions against a particular family (bordering on victimisation); in this case, Lee Hsien Yang’s family?

    @ patriot:
    Good day to you, Mate! Great to hear from you appreciating about my history lessons. A lot of S’poreans know nuts about the real history of S’pore & the “hidden” politics. Most of them read from the Sinkie Times which published nonsensical news.
    Not much to say about Tony, patriot because he’s a insignificant player in the political scene. But I could add that OCBC was once the Premier Banking Group in S’pore & parts of Asia a century ago. In one bull market eons ago, OCBC Bank share went up as high as SG$80-$90 per share. How do I know as I was still playing marbles then? A relative told me that he paid that price long ago at the bull market peak.
    How OCBC Bank went from number 1 to a distant 3rd in the present day banking eco-system is a mystery to me. Once upon a time. OCBC Group owned significant assets & household brandnames like
    * Cold Storage (“Ko Storee”) & Magnolia Milk Bar (“Ang Gee Gu Nee”);
    * Robinsons (“Lor Bin Soon”)/John Little’s Dept stores;
    * F&N “Eff ‘N Ann Pok Chwee”;
    * Asia Pacific Breweries (“Ang Gee Kow”);
    * Bukit Sembawang Estates (Seletar Hills developer)
    For OCBC who seconded their people into the govt eg Tony Tan, Teo Chee Hean plus a lot of OCBC Alumni who were very influential & prominent in business & society – it’s a shocker that they’ve come so far down.
    Those who had left OCBC Group seemed to have done better; Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians, & the late Khoo Teck Puat who was forced out of OCBC in a power struggle with Tan Chin Tuan (he went on to found Maybank & Bank of Brunei plus he sold Stanchart to Temasek Holdings for a very good price then).

    patriot of TUMASIK:
    @Rabble-rouser…most of your dig-outs are correct on the FamiLee but let me add onto Tony, he left and return to OCBC the family Banks as Ex-Chairman and made quite a mess with policies and there was disquiet amongst the senior staff…Loong had cancer(big DEAL!!!) and the wooden piece of shit took the opportunity to save Tony from his falling grace @OCBC and like they say the rest is History dictated according to a Bastard now dead

  • Mist clears but slowly:

    [email protected] r having a fine time sharing their opinion from every possible professional angles as they come from a multitude of professional disciplines.
    Aiya, among the fiercely flaming plps each trying to chalk up points for a seat in the BoD in a SIN asset owned Co or a better one, there r still some rather cinders left leaving some leak hole for the small lps of the past thought most the the cinders are chilled by the foul pui from the gorilla den surprisingly well cherished by the beyond human shame fart worms desperately to mature.
    Yaai, yea maybe true but no use la without info support. The struggling small bananas fast rotting in the stench wisp from the deadly uncouth gorilla youo n yaya r clinching on with killing evidence that could aflame the well camouflaged cinders that the gorilla stench smothered imberlp feels too uncompy with the cinder heat n the perforated shield of plps n rather eats his big lumpy words than to stretch out its head to be charred.
    Aiya, that is understood. Without the cinder where come the fear n hide in the house of big time but threatenable plps.
    Yo yo, Harry n Dunsien r both right but don’t the gorilla has been favourite to the goner n has stenched the imberlp with what she recollected from the 250k lesson. Scissor off the branches leaves n flower to fake the real slaughter.
    Heh heh, have all of you forgotten there is still the unsettled debts due to the much beloved own selection yuenzi dove that imberlp waited impatiently to collect in kinds with elimination of all memories of the dead n gone enemy whether pimps and prostitutes or small bananas, al must go.
    Wow wow, Dr you really have diagnostic skill n still have that psycho tech in you. Lucky you went private n your brain n skill which definitely would have kaput if you succumb to carry the stinking rotten banana day in day out.
    With these, the [email protected] roared n giggled to order another round of Kopi leaving the audience with quizzingly look of having to digest the profound vocal history from these old foggies!

  • This Case gd SG?:

    Mr Pink claimed that it was “a family matter”.

    Many disagreed – as state resources were used.
    -
    Mr Pink claimed that it was “a private matter”.

    Many disagreed – as “abuse of power” was levelled on Mr. Pink.

    -
    Having them in the open showed the inner workings of the AristoCATs.
    -
    Be very concerned ! So, remember the Ballot Box !
