Analogy.

I own a maid agency.
My brother accuses me of using underhand methods to get maids in from other countries. He posts allegations and evidences online because he wants to expose me.

I apologise to my employees. And hold a open meeting with all my employees to allow them to ask me anything they want so that they can ascertain for themselves my integrity and character.

My brother is not involved

Case closed.

the gahmen as a body may be compromised on its ability and its will power to look after country, how is it with so many MP ... nobody on their own facebook say their own views? did LHL or HC issue shutup order?
This is the fundamental problem with SG politics isn't it. It's true that our system have worked very well in the past. No.1 in the world for so many things.

But this system needs a team with near 100% commitment, integrity and absolute conviction to function well. Becoz there is no other thing to prevent them from being rouge other than their own values.

It's like inception, once a tiny bit of idea gets into u. It will stay in mind and if your convictions are not strong enough, cracks appear and that is it for Singapore.

But alas, not many Singaporeans able to see this, and prefer the status quo.

Fking liar.
Lying to LKY and the whole nation.
How can we have a straight up liar with no integrity as a leader of the nation?
Those who cried for LKY during his funeral have all changed face liao, all side with pinky and attacking LKY children (LWL and LHY) and saying LKY wish shd not be respected and the house shd not be demolished

Crocodile tears

Maybe JB Jeyaratnam is saying to him now somewhere in heaven or in hell:
"hey pal, see, u no better than me"

People are forgetful and easy become blur

When old man was on, national day parade celebration, he and his team only wear their uniform (all white) to attend - what that meant?

Political party above citizenship

When his son took over, it was the same thing too

Until just a few years ago, when another political party manage to remind them, political party is not monopoly

So whatever anybody says

People will forget very soon

There's no memory in SG

Everything changes too fast

Instead of sueing for defamation in the court to prove his innocence, he is taking the own direct own talk own act route in parliament.

This means the siblings' allegations were 100% true and can stand in court.

Pinky is the biggest loser here.

Don't think private citizens can debate in parliament but then pm can conduct open hearing like recent Comey case

For sure court he will be placed under greater scrutiny.

I believe the siblings know certain things just won't happen here and have decided to escape

Wonder what is the rubbish fuss about.
LKY's will is to demolish the place. Why cannot just respect the last wishes?

Why some people want to disrespect LKY's last wishes? they don't respect ah gong enough to respect his last wishes?
Preserve his legacy. U may not agree but tats possibly Lhl opinion

From what I see here, the quality of debate on edmw is way much better than those in parliament.

He can rehearse 1000 times before the live performance, script and perfect his apologetic facial expression, and speech in "response" to "unwhipped" questions.

He can't do all that in court. His siblings got facts and evidences too.

Zaobao already show bigbig his apology video screengrabs on 1st page

I can bet later during lunch time you can heard many OLs expressing their praise for his "sincere apology". So predictable!
