Singapore's playboy womanizer, Lee Kuan Yew's Law Minister K. Shanmugam strikes again

Ladies and Gentlemen,

K Shanmugam is a Singapore Tamil, handpicked by the island's strongman Lee Kuan Yew as it's Minister for Law. He seems to have a history of extra marital encounters especially with Singapore Chinese women, the race he prefers over his own Tamil women.

Singapore state controlled newspaper the Straits Times of Feb 15, 2012 details the latest of his sexual conquests. In the story headed "Blogger erases comment after minister sends lawyer's letter". In it, this Minister playboy had sent a lawyer's letter to a Singapore blogger Alex Au demanding that a comment on his blog be brought down or else he will sue for defamation of character.

The facts are these. In one of Alex Au's blogs lately, Scroobal, writing incognito said the following:

“I take the points raised in the above two comments. Indeed, I think the role of the mainstream press in this issue needs to be contrasted with the relative silence when it came to allegations swirling around K Shanmugam and Foo Mee Har at various points in the recent past. That there were rumours is widely known, though as in the Yaw Shin Leong case, no one can point to any proof. But that’s not my point here. My point is that the mainstream media’s interest in the Yaw affair does not look like neutral journalism."

The rumors are that Lee Kuan Yew's playboy minister has been having an ongoing affair with another of his women colleagues, Foo Mee Har, also a Singapore Chinese woman, a fact which is common knowledge in Singapore.

Since there is no freedom of speech to speak of and Singaporeans live under a very rigorous defamation regime where judges abuse the law at will to punish anyone who criticizes the government, there is no way in the world for someone to mention this fact openly, leaving Singaporeans to rely on rumours and innuendo, which under the circumstances are usually very accurate.

There can be no doubt that this Tamil playboy minister has been at it again given his proclivity for being a adulterous Romeo.

His reputation for sexual conquest upon Chinese women has a long history. It all started as long ago as a decade, to the days before he was handpicked to do Lee Kuan Yew's bidding. Then he was working in the law firm Allen and Gledhill and besides the law he was having a very active extra marital curriculum with Chinese women, his race of choice.

This was pointed out to me in comment to my blogpost dated Wednesday, November 24, 2010 "Alan Shadrake's Judge, Loh Sze On Quentin's biggest folly". (Please read this post in this blog)

Who are the people left to do Lee bidding? See this chap's history taken from SBF.

After reading Shanmugam's explanation I am really upset as he is obviously treating us like idiots. Well here is tit for tat.

This is the type of caliber that we have in govt and a cabinet minister at that. This prick was married to the daughter of an SC. While working in Allen and Gledhill, he began an affair with a Chinese colleague. He was having a right royal fling and had no qualms about visiting the various watering holes with her. His favourite lunch hangout was a coffeeshop run by Glen Knight near Hong Lim Green where he and his lady will be busy petty themselves silly oblivious to a wall mounted mirror and that people were watching.

When the wife and her family came to know, our dear minister hatched what he thought was a cunning plot. He duty rostered his Indian lawyer underlings to escort the lady every lunch time to suggest that this Chinese lady prefers the company of Indians. And he was mistaken for one of his staff. Being subordinates, our lawyers and officers of the Supreme Court had little choice but to accept.

So how did the the in-laws finally nail the prick. Obviously they did not hire ISD.

To cut a long story short, after the divorce, he was told to find a wife, so that they can make him a minister. So a quick bang instant marriage was arranged and in a month the marriage was done in Chennai.

The affair is not the issue. The ethics behind forcing his subordinates to escort his girlfriend around is pretty much sub-standard.

I am sure Lee Kuan Yew's Singaporean Tamil playboy, Rodolfo Valentino, is becoming an increasing embarrassment for the squeaky clean image that the government puts out to justify their million dollar salaries. Especially in these times when it is becoming increasingly difficult for them to keep up the front of perfection, with daily flooding, massive emigration, no birth rate and daily suicides, should they not take some real action to improve their image?

Perhaps it is time to show him the door.

That's an interesting thought.

Why not send THIS blog post to Allen & Gledhill.

Ask this Great Law Firm what they (and their ex-colleague K. Shanmugam) are going to do about it.

Ask them if they will also send a letter of demand to AND see whether they can get their way outside Singapore.

To Anonymous of Feb 17, 0710,

Rather than being "ex-Singaporean", I may be more Singaporean than you think. I was born in Singapore, took active part in Workers Party politics, contested 2 elections, worked for the common good of Singaporeans which I still do from America and have been repeatedly persecuted. That is in fact more Singaporean than many who live in Singapore as Singapore citizens.

I fail to understand.
If someone screws around and is incapable of keeing his manhood within bounds I just fail to understand why he would not have the balls to stand up in public and admit to the affairs.
