Sure can ask any questions? I thought all questions asked must submit 2 weeks before the parliament meeting?

It's like the recent US case where senators grill Comey about Trump.

So pm is putting himself in a similar position as Comey.

The only difference is those asking him questions are likely to be much friendlier
not friendlier. probably adopt from mediacorp script.

i wondered what is the purposes of answering questions in parliament?

If he can answer the questions... so what? means he is right? means no abuse of power? so he can explain everything can already? his words are gold?

If he cannot answer the questions... so what? does it means he is guilty? does it means he is in the wrong? got abuse of power? so what if he got abuse power?

the speaker of parliament is not a judge... she cannot judge who is right/wrong

i applaud his willingness to be "transparent"... but it serves little legal purposes... on the contrary... unless his siblings are also invited for the q&a... this parliament session is just a platform for LHL and his minions to broadcast their one-sided show in a more formal way..

the right venue should be in a courtroom...
Definition of Parliament from Singapore Parliament website:
"An assembly of citizens, elected or appointed, to represent the people with the primary function of passing laws for the country."

maybe after answering the questions in parliament, they'll pass some related laws

as a son... i truly believes he will want to demolish the house...

but as PM... it is his duty to protect the heritage and legacy of the nation founding father... whether is it for political gain or not... lets give him the benefit of the doubt...

so if i can ask him one question... it will be... which role does he want to play... as a son or as PM of the nation?

For this saga... actually he can be the biggest winner... either way he answer he is going to win big...

if he answer he want to be a filial son... he will win numerous support for his filial ways...

if he answer he want to be PM of the nation... he will also win big support for putting nation ahead of his personal obligation as a son...

but too bad he chose the humji way... he dun dare to make that decision himself... he let the committee decide for him... really a wrong move...

wake up lah plz. actions speaks louder than words. still need to ask for more lies to bruff urself?

his actions already showed that he disagreed with his siblings, and prolly disagreed with everyone else in the family, plus the dead old monkey. only the jinx prolly on his side.

that explained so many stunts on his side.

whereas everyone else only got 1 move: follow the old monkey's will and demolish the house.

What is a committee using public resources poking into private issue?
