Ladies and Gentlemen,
Lee Kuan Yew's son, whom his father appointed the Prime Minister of Singapore has said some very interesting things while speaking to Charlie Rose on his American talk show on April 14, 2010. See http://charlierose.com/view/interview/10963, and my previous post "Lee Kuan Yew's son claims Singapore is a Confucian society, not a democracy".
But one thing from his Charlie Rose show, that seems evident although unintended, is the worry that he appears to show about his future, indeed his safety and his life, when his father who is 87 years old soon dies.
Nearing the end of the interview he says, "And he has made a system (a Singapore political system) which went on without him and which will endure beyond him".(Paranthesis mine). This statement was entirely unsolicited by Charlie Rose. There was no reason for him to say it. But he did.
The reason as I see it, is that he knows the exact opposite to be true. Singapore as Singaporeans know is a one man show, that is Lee Kuan Yew and no one else; which has been the case since 1959 when his father first came to power.
Singapore will collapse, literally collapse, when Lee Kuan Yew dies which is soon to happen. He knows it.
As for him and the various minions who run around doing his bidding, such as every single minister and every judge, survive and exist entirely because of him. One word from him and the next minute, anyone or all of them will be history, removed, silenced and kaput.
If these people are able to do anything at all all this time since Lee Kuan Yew's moving over to be Minister Mentor is because he is still around and calls all the shots, regardless of his political title. It is as simple as that.
None of these Lee Kuan Yew's minions in government are leaders on their own right, every single one being a handpicked expendable bureaucrat.
But this is a fact he has to hide as much as possible from the international community, because if they know how fragile the island really is which depends on one man to run the show, they may well pull out their assets and businesses right now, close shop and move to a more stable location like Australia.
So his need to make this statement which he knows to be untrue, Singaporeans know to be untrue and the discerning world audience also know to be untrue. But since dictatorships all over the world try to survive on disinformation as long as they can, which is really not very long, this son of Lee Kuan Yew tries to hoodwink the Americans with this lie.
Singapore will not only become unstable after Lee Kuan Yew's demise, it will simply collapse. Recall, I tested my theory not too long ago with my hoax on Lee Kuan Yew's heart attack and you know what happened. There was a mini upset in the island just because I said it. What happens if the report had not come not from me but from Reuters? I tell you, there would be no one left in the island.
That is why I say his son is afraid, very afraid as to what will happen to him after his father dies which will happen very soon, literally this week or the next. Whether you pack your bags and leave now is a decision only you can make, not I.
About Burma he says "But I suspect a few people who make the decisions, they have decided that this is an existential thing for them. If they are out, it is not just the country and the government has changed, but where do I go and which jail will I be in and my children and my jewels and my billions?"
What he says of Burma is true as it has become now a question of survival for them and the dire consequences to them if overthrown. But is he talking only of the Burmese military junta or is he also referring to himself?
He knows that now, it is also, a question of survival for him, his family and friends, his jewels and his billions if he was ever overthrown. He knows he will have to answer to the Singaporeans for his abuse of the law, throwing innocent people in jail and unjustly enriching himself by the billions. Oh yes, just as for the Burmese military elite, he too worries and for him too, it is a question of survival. That is why he clings on to power by the only way he knows, by brute force and a corrupt judiciary to punish his detractors.
You can see why I say, this Lee Kuan Yew's son, worries at night.
