HO CHING SPEAKS UP FOR FIRST TIME, REMINDS SIBLINGS LKY WOULD NOT WANT THEM TO SQUABBLE

The noise coming from Ho Ching now is that she claims she had informed the Lee siblings about the items loaned to the National Heritage Board, and she vehemently claimed that she had informed Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling about what she did when tidying up the house at 38, Oxley Road after Mr Lee's funeral. In her reply, she also managed to insinuate that the cleaning up process was hard work, and she had to do it, as she did not see either Lee Wei Ling or Lee Hsien Yang's wife capable of doing such "dogsbody" work.

She also said that at all times, she had informed all the siblings about her actions, and whenever she found interesting things for NHB, she would tell the siblings and they were agreeable to the items being put on show. She also reiterated that these items are loaned out from the estate, and must be returned.

She ended her reply by tugging on the family heartstrings by saying "I hope that whatever you are upset about, you will have the heart to remember what papa and mama would have wanted most for the family and for Singapore." Spoken like a true diplomat.

VIRAL VIDEO CLAIMS LKY FLIP PRATA ON 38 OXLEY DEMOLITION, SUGGESTED RENO WORKS IF HOUSE PRESERVED

This video is circulating furiously online. It alleges that contrary to Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling's statements, Lee Kuan Yew was not adamant about demolishing his home. In the video and another Lee Hsien Loong speech, Mr Lee Kuan Yew's letter to cabinet was read out and LKY supposedly reflected upon and changed his mind on the matter.

INDRANEE RAJAH: LKY CONTEMPLATED DEMOLITION NOT ONLY OPTION

Her first point was that the most relevant part of LKY's will was paragraph 7, where he expressed his desire to have the house demolished after his death or when Lee Wei Ling decides not to stay there anymore. However. LKY stated that if his wish for the house to be demolished not be met, his wish was for the house not be opened to others except his children and descendants. The second point was that the Oxley Road house is no longer a private matter, as it is closely bound up in the history of Singapore. Singaporeans understand the historical significance of the site as 38 Oxley Road is not just any old piece of property, but is intertwined with the history of the nation. As such, whatever happens to the house is of public interest, and that is why the Government is intervening.

Her third point was that PM Lee has taken himself out of the equation for any decisions made on the house, due to the conflict of interest. He has recused himself from taking part in any Government consideration or decisions regarding 38 Oxley Road. And the final, most important point is that nothing can be done to the house right now, be it to demolish it or to preserve it. This is for the simple reason that Dr Lee Wei Ling is still living there.

21 REASONS WHY THARMAN'S CALL FOR CONFIDENCE IN PAP IS MISPLACED

In his Facebook post, DPM Tharman Shanmugaratnam called on Singaporeans to “have confidence” in the present system of governance, adding, “You can count on PM Lee Hsien Loong and all of us in his team for that.” To have confidence in the government, Singaporeans need transparency. So before the DPM asks for trust in Mr Lee Hsien Loong's team, the PAP must first account for and explain:

MAID SUSPECTED IN DOUBLE MURDER WAS HIRED FROM COUPLE'S SON MAID AGENCY

More and more details are emerging about the maid suspected of the double murder of the elderly couple at their Bedok Reservoir flat. Some news media have named the maid as Khasanah, and placed her age as 41 years old. Reports also indicated that she had brought tickets to either Batam or Tanjung Balai on Great Karimun on the very day the murders were committed.

While authorities try to find her on one of these islands, with the Singapore police having believed to have contacted their Indonesian counterparts to assist in the investigations, the most damaging detail of this tragedy has emerged. It is reported that the maid was hired from Sun Employment Agency, which is owned by the dead couple's son, who also lives in the flat. Online records show that the couple's daughter also works at the agency, which has been around for about 12 years and moved to its current location at Bukit Timah Shopping Centre about two years ago. If this allegations are true, then it does seem that the son had facilitated in getting his parents the maid, which is not out of the ordinary. But this maid would go on to be a suspect in his parent's deaths is a tragic side story.

AUTHORITIES MUST ACT DECISIVELY NOW TO STOP RENTAL BIKE ABUSE

Within a short period of June, there are already three cases of ofo bicycles abuse that resulted in police arrest. Two of the cases are bicycles being thrown down from high level and this might result to injury or even death if the bicycle had hit a passer-by.

There are two questions that the authorities should answer. First, are they waiting for something to happen before they do something with all this bicycles. The authorities should worked with the bicycle rented companies and come out with a proper solution. Second, why is the person, filming the 13 years old boy throwing the bicycle down, not arrested by police.

I understand that the news of the Lee family issues are indeed hot topic but this is a on going issue that the authorities should look into it. I do not wish to see anyone being hurt during any of the bicycle abuse accident.
