Ladies and Gentlemen,
I had written a hoax in this blog recently claiming the Singapore strongman 87 year old Lee Kuan Yew had a massive heart attack, curious of the consequence of it in his tiny island where everything depends on him.
Not surprisingly the hoax caused a storm. The stock market which I heard dropped, was followed immediately by the state controlled press with a report claiming it rose, an obvious attempt to assuage the fears of the business community. One writer wrote that he nearly dumped all his shares to avoid their losing value.
Lee Kuan Yew's son, whom he appointed Prime Minister is not of consequence at all, as most people know. He can be safely ignored. There is nothing he has or can do without his father.
So, as we are very certain of business and political mayhem in Singapore with his death, it is time to warn all those foreign banks and investors in Singapore that it is not safe. Not safe for their investments in an island where everything depends on the old man.
Which reminds me that since the last several months, we have never seen the 87 year old tottering Lee Kuan Yew in public at all. At the time of my hoax, the Prime Ministers' office conveniently reported that he had gone to London, but unlike in the past, there not even a single news report from the state controlled press of his London trip. No pictures of him in London. No pictures of interviews with London luminaries. No nothing.
We all know that when he travels abroad, he is accompanied by several journalists from his Singapore state controlled press who report every word that he utters. In this case, total silence.
You know what I think? His trip to London was a lie. He never left Singapore. He was probably in Singapore all along, dead worried about what would happen to him and his son if the public fell for my story.
I hate to say this, but I beginning to wonder whether in fact he is actually dead! In other dictatorial countries such as North Korea and Soviet Union, since they also control the press like in Singapore, they do not report the death of the dictator sometimes for several months so as not to alarm the public.
In Singapore we know the economy is bound to collapse with his death since the entire island is run by this man.
So my question is, is he dead? And is the Singapore state controlled media deliberately hiding the inevitable fact from us?
If we do not hear anything from the Singapore state controlled press anytime soon, it would have been several months since we last had any news whether the man was breathing.
Remember he is 87.
Perhaps it is time for even more Singaporeans to pack up for New Zealand now, the recent hot favorite for Singapore emigres, and for foreign businessmen and crooks to take their money and get out.
Leaving now is a prudent decision. The Singapore ship will sink with the old man. There is no doubt about it. Better now than too late.
If the brain drain today from Singapore is bad enough now, it will turn into an unstoppable flood the moment news breaks out the man has gone to his Maker.
