Ladies and Gentlemen,
Singapore's state controlled newspaper the Straits Times Online edition of Sept 30, 2010 carried the story "MM Lee hospitalized", meaning Singapore's Minister Mentor and dictator Lee Kuan Yew has been hospitalized.
The report refers to chest infection as the cause which prevented him from attending the funeral of one of his minions Dr. Balaji Sadasivan who had died of colon cancer.
Lee only 2 days ago had physiotherapy resulting from a fall in Kiev where he was giving an interview.
Readers would recall an island wide nervousness resulting from my blog post of Saturday, March 6, 2010(Update: March 07, 2010, this is a hoax) Singapore strongman 87 year old Lee Kuan Yew suffers massive heart attack in which I deliberately and falsely wrote he had a severe heart attack.
My writing then caused people not only in Singapore but worldwide extreme nervousness of the consequences.
My point in writing it then was to prove that very point, which is, Singapore despite it's proclamations of a democracy is in fact a delicate flimsy one party state dictatorship in which everything happens because of this one man, and that his death would have monumental and devastating consequences in the island making the Indonesian tsunami a mere hiccup.
I guess this nervousness and fear of the unknown among Singaporeans has now begun for real, with the dictator having been reported to have been treated for a fall 2 days ago in Eastern Europe and yesterday, a severe chest infection.
With these dire reports, the people can reasonably fear only one thing, the man is going to kick the bucket very soon, and the unthinkable happening.
And with that fear gripping the entire Singapore and the western capitals of the world, can I ask now the following very pertinent questions?
Is the stock market in Singapore falling or will it fall very soon?
Will the foreign investors who have put their money in the island because of the old dictator pull out of Singapore now?
Is his son whom he placed as Prime Minister whom no one respects let alone himself going to be re-visited with the cancer which had plagued him in the past and die himself?
Is Dr. Chee Soon Juan and his opposition Singapore Democratic Party doubling up their efforts to ready themselves for a multi cornered political fight with other aspirants?
Are even more Singaporeans now cashing out and leaving the island permanently rather than to wait until the Singapore dollar loses all value?
Is Judge Belinda Ang Saw Ean who so confidently abused the law to punish her master's opponent now having second thoughts about the whole thing and packing out of Singapore and herself entirely?
Yes many of the fears that I mentioned are about to happen regardless of whether the dictator dies today or tomorrow. You see, with these 2 incidents only a couple of days apart, anyone with normal caution will see the danger of waiting any longer.
I am sure that with his death, the Singapore dollar will take a dive. That means a loss for a great many people who hold that currency. Common sense dictates that waiting till the last minute, which is obviously fast approaching is suicidal.
Another thing which both local and foreign governments are aware is this, his son as Prime minister is really not up to it. And I am sure the son knows it too.
This means there is bound to be infighting for a new team which commands some respect. But the problem is that it cannot happen in Singapore because Lee Kuan Yew himself made it impossible.
Singapore's leaders today are not leaders in the real sense but purely handpicked bootlickers that he has placed in power with million dollar salaries. Take the example of K Shanmugam his recently appointed Tamil Minister of Law. Does anyone consider him a leader of anyone or anything, I don't think so. He knows that as well as we all do which is, he is there because he was prepared to be the master's errand boy. It is the same with every one of these Lee Kuan Yew ministers.
What is even more disgusting and dishonest is the fact that these Ministers were not appointed by a mistake. No, they were appointed by design, because Lee Kuan Yew knows that such nobodys picked out of thin air cannot ever be threats to his power, because if he allowed real leaders to develop, then his own position might be uncertain, especially because he may not be able to steal the millions which he does from Singaporeans now.
The best way to describe Lee Kuan Yew is a dishonest corrupt power hungry third world dictator who managed to create a political system that would ensure his own survival and that of his family. He deliberately ensures that the system would not outlast him. That is why either today or tomorrow when Lee Kuan Yew dies there is going to be utter confusion mayhem and disorder in the island.
If you are wise, get out now. Get out with your money, your families and the hope which you still have.
In 1933 when Hitler came to power in the Reichstag, there were those who saw the writing on the wall and left. I need not say what happened to those who were left behind especially the Jews in Hitler's Third Reich. What is going to happen in Singapore is complete disorder and collapse.
By the way, I wonder what the recently appointed judge Quentin Loh Sze Onn is thinking now. Only a month ago, he entered the Singapore judiciary, hand picked by Lee Kuan Yew and his minions, all prepared to spend his remaining long career pleasing his master and his master's son. I hope he is reading this blog now.
