(Update: March 07, 2010, this is a hoax) Singapore strongman 87 year old Lee Kuan Yew suffers massive heart attack

Ladies and Gentlemen,

According to latest reports received from Singapore a few minutes ago, the 87 year old Singapore strongman, Lee Kuan Yew, had suffered a massive heart attack at 9.34 pm yesterday Singapore time.

He is reported to be presently in the Intensive Care Cardiac Unit of the Singapore General Hospital under sedation and respiration, carefully watched by a team of doctors, with his son whom he appointed the Prime Minister and his 2 other children beside him.

It is understood his wife is also in the same hospital in a coma now for several years.

It is uncertain if he can recover at his age, and the pacemaker which he has in his heart is believed to have contributed to it.

According to reports, the pacemaker malfunctioned triggering this massive heart attack.

With the entire country run by this one man, the fear that business leaders and bankers had for very long may have finally come true; that such a happening can destroy the business confidence and cause total destruction in the small island city state.

The reason for the lack of confidence is due to the general lack of confidence in his son's, the prime minister's capacity to govern thereby creating a power vacuum with no single person able to assume control in the island.

In fact reports have been coming in that some investors have already started transferring their funds overseas creating a fear there could be a run on the banks.

There are reports that several top officials who have amassed fortunes under Lee Kuan Yew's patronage and connections have begun to have the jitters and started moving their funds overseas.

A few high ranking civil servants and judges who were responsible for human rights abuses against his political opponents have also been on alert ready to leave the island any minute.

Reports have also been coming in that peaceful protesters and demonstrators have begun assembling in small pockets at the Geylang and Mountbatten Road junction and the Orchard Road and Patterson Road junction holding placards
reading "Democracy" and "Down With the Dictator" and chanting slogans.

The situation is very fluid and I will be reporting on the situation as it unfolds. There have been numerous telephone calls to the Prime Ministers Office and the Singapore newspaper the Straits Times for information.

Dear Gopalan,

I find this a bit difficult to believe. But then again, there could always be a media blackout, and that news of police activity at SGH could be true.

Can you be certain that the sources from which you got your news are credible?

No offence but your report sound like something out from a B movie. So far there is no report of protest on official or non-official media. I am not doubting your sources but the information is a bit too detailed. It looks like someone working in the hospital leaked the news!

Are you sure? I'm not getting any news of this in Singapore..

Also, do you know Walter Woon just stepped down as AG in less than 2 years of taking the post? Can you guess why Mr Gopalan?

Take care, best of luck.

I hope Mr LKY is well.

Ans as much as no one lives forever, I pray for peace in Singapore and for good people to take leader when that time should come.

God bless.

how do we verify this claim? I wouldn't put it past the MSM to do what the North Korean media did of their little emperor but Singapore's a small place. If this were through, there should be a run on the SGX and the banks.

This is utter bullshit. I stay at paterson road and i have yet to see any of these.What kind of a stun are you trying to pull here?

Brilliant!!

Drive traffic to your web site. Get people to tweet.

BTW, I agree with one of the posters who called you a fat boy - given your weight, and the Indian-genes to cardia illness, LKY may outlive you.

Go Fat Boy go. Give them hell.

Gopal,

As much as I wish to offer you that benefit of doubt, you do realise that you're integrity (at the human level) is at stake here.

Best regards.

The older people in Singapore have benefited from LKY's policies.

But the young are so screwed:

(1) Have to serve NS with the loss of 2 years
(2)CPF suffering from losses at GIC and TH
(3)Can't afford HDB housing
(4) Losing jobs to FTs.

Ouch!!

Once LKY dies, the fear factor in Singapore will disappear for time immemorial.

Everyone will sit at the kopitiams and talk their shit out against the LHL.

The death of LKY brings with it the death of all his fear machinery. There is no fearmonger to answer to. And we can all relax a little, knowing that the air is fresher once again.

The first thing I want to abolish is this fucking pseudo ELITISM that they have constructed as a vanguard for rational discourse, making politics almost a hand-me-down priviledge and a taboo topic for the masses.

I think I just came in my pants.

If it isn't true, no worries. Thanks for making my day.

LeeConYou said...

It is a pity LKY still lives - hahaha!
Otherwise, the elite Singaporeans will be busy doing things to show how much they "love" the cult leader.

Everyone of them will set new allegiance with the Dear Leader.

The Anonymous (Sun Mar 07, 05:30:00 PM PST), what do you tink (sic)?

LeeStillConYou said...

Let me guess...

"not even a Singaporean." (Sun Mar 07, 04:43:00 PM PST) is the reason why Singaporeans vote in PAP in every election.

It seems that only the Opposition is malicious and shameless. But if it is the PAP doing the same dirty tactics, he or she will shut 2 eyes at the crimes, because police don't catch them, and the 144th report the news, bias with their approvals and justifications.

ex-Singaporeans like me are horrified by the dirty deeds of the PAP towards the Opposition.

But in general, Singaporeans are blind to such acts, even thinking that the Opposition deserve them because they have ulterior motives.

Shame on the "educated" Singaporeans!

Poor Opposition. Misunderstood. Your sacrifice are in vain!

Make this come true. But a heart attack would be too easy a death for this old bastard. He should be alive to bury his own son first.
