Ladies and Gentlemen,
Singapore's state controlled newspaper the Straits Times online edition of August 25, 2009 has this article " Ho Ching on breastfeeding. Temasek CEO relates her own experience at event to mark World Breastfeeding Week".
Many things should annoy a Singaporeans resident. Such as the corruption of it's politicians who openly pay themselves millions of dollars which they claim to be a salary, the siphoning off even more millions from the the country's assets in the CPF, GIC and Temasek Holdings whose activities are secret, and so on.
As if this was not enough, what is another major annoyance is having to read unsolicited nonsense from the Lee Kuan Yew family and his cronies about matters about which no one is interested in , coming from them, and about which they are not qualified to lecture on anyway.
In this article put out by the state controlled Singapore press, Ho Ching advises on the merits or otherwise of breastfeeding. Frankly I have not wasted my time reading it, but I assume it is a lecture on the merits of breastfeeding children. We all know it anyway, but that is not the point.
The point is, who is she to speak about this anyway. Merely because she is Lee Kuan Yew's son's wife, whom the father made Prime Minister does not give her any licence for this. Lee Kuan Yew's son as you know has never been lawfully elected into office. His father Lee Kuan Yew kept out the opposition at elections by vote rigging, defamation actions and threats to jail and bankrupt anyone who dared to stand against him. After being unlawfully chosen as a PAP Member of Parliament at the polls, he was quickly made a Deputy Prime Minister and Prime Minister thereafter. He has no authority as a Prime Minister anyway. No other quality other than being the son of his father. He then appoints his wife, this woman Ho Ching, to manage the state's assets in Tumasek, the government company which keeps the country's savings. We know that she has mismanaged the assets either because she stole them (corruption) or mismanagement to the tune of several billions of dollars, much of which has either not been accounted for or which the government refuses to disclose.
In these circumstances what gives this woman the authority to lecture to us on the practice of breastfeeding children about which she has no professional or academic knowledge whatsoever?
First of all she should not be talking at all, and even if she did, she should explain herself on how and in what manner $100 billion was lost. Did she steal it, and if not why did she mismanage it. Otherwise she should just shut up and go away.
But you see, that is unlikely to happen in a country with no free press, freedom of speech or expression. Whether you like it or not, Singaporeans have to simply continue reading this drivel.
