Singapore. Has anyone seen 90 year old Singapore dictator, Lee Kuan Yew

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have written many blog posts on the danger of the 90 year old Lee Kuan Yew dying. Every single dictatorship in the world suffers from the same problem. In every single country with dictators, of which Singapore is surely one, the entire country revolves around one man, the dictator.

Although the sun does not rise every morning because of him, almost every thing else is. The business runs because of him, investments come in because of him, the stability of the country is because of him, and the buses run because of him, people live in the island because of him. It is he alone, the one man who has been in power continuously since 1959 (although he may want to deny it), even longer than Fidel Castro, is the very reason why Singapore exists.

Of course those in the establishment who are afraid of this truth would say that his son is now the boss, but nothing can be further from the truth. Everyone knows that Lee Kuan Yew's son is simply nothing. He is where he is because of his father and when the father goes he will be nothing. And so will every other bootlicking prostrators like dogs at the feet of Lee Kuan Yew today, such as the Tamil Minister K Shanmugam, the sidekick Teo Chee Hean and the blubbering Vivian Balakrishnan. All these characters are where they are because they are prepared to lick boots. And when the boots are gone, and there is nothing left to lick, they too will disappear, very probably abroad, leaving Singaporeans in the lurch.

We haven't seen the 90 year old Lee Kuan Yew for a bit. The last I heard he couldn’t walk. We don't know if he is dead, bed ridden, paralyzed or demented. If you are not worried about this, you should be. If Lee is gone, I predict the stock market to immediately take a plunge, the property prices to do the same, and the Singapore dollar to become worthless.

So you may want to do a couple of things now, before it is too late. Find out what has happened to the 90 year old dictator. And if the situation looks precarious, take your money, your bags and your families and get out now. Go to Australia, Canada or anywhere else where you could cut your losses. Singapore is not a place to be in without the dictator. I hate to say this, but unfortunately it is true.
