Mr Lee Kuan Yew wanted Dr Lee Wei Ling to stay in the house as long as she wanted. The Government has publicly stated that it will respect those wishes and does not intend to do anything until Dr Lee leaves. Letting the house stand for now does not go against those wishes. Mr Lee Hsien Yang has said Dr Lee does not want to move out and she has every intention of living a long life. That being the case, the matter may well not need to be decided for another 20-30 years. It can be decided by a future government. So there is nothing for the Government to decide now” – why not throw this question back to the Government?

We are going to learn whether (as I hope) the ruling party is still full of men and women of quality and strong character, or whether it is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!"

Earlier, LHL's son Li Hongyi also said he's really not interested in politics. Is this the end of the Lee Dynasty?
