IN 2002 PM GOH CALLED ONG TENG CHEONG S'PORES 1ST ELECTED PRESIDENT BUT PAP GOVT FLIP PRATA NOW?

What PM Goh wrote in his condolence letter to Ong Teng Cheong's family in 2002: "As the first elected President, Teng Cheong had to work the new two-key system..." Do note that PM Goh was writing as head of government, representing the govt's views. So how can you say that to a grieving family only to years later argue in court that it is not true?

GOH CHOK TONG WARNS S'PORE WILL SLIP INTO A 3RD WORLD NATION IF WILLFUL ATTACKS ON INTEGRITY ARE ALLOWED

In Parliament today, ESM Goh Chok Tong lamented that the public Lee family squabble has been blown out of proportion but he was not concerned with the feud or the fate of 38 Oxley road. He warned instead that willful attacks such as those employed by Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang would caused Singapore to slip into a third world country if public faith was eroded.

GOH CHOK TONG: PNG ENG HUAT IS SPREADING RUMOURS BY READING LEE SIBLINGS' FB POSTS

ESM Goh Chok Tong lashed out at Workers' Party's Png Eng Huat in Parliament today for merely reading out quotes from Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling's Facebook instead of stating his position on the issue. "Anyone can simply read. That is akin to spreading rumour. As an honourable Member of Parliament, he should state his position on what he has read. That is what we are elected as MPs for - to have a clear view on issues".

He invited Low Thia Kiang and other opposition MPs to state their stance clearly regarding PM Lee and the Government's integrity. Nevertheless, he also agreed with them that allegations against the PM are baseless, calculated, and should be stopped.

EX-PM GOH CHOK TONG WEIGHTS IN: S'PORE WILL NOT BE DRAGGED DOWN BY PETTY LEE FAMILY DISPUTE

Singapore has prevailed through crises and adversity. We are a hardy people, built our family and nation from humble beginnings. What is happening in public between Lee Kuan Yew's children is not us and should not be allowed to define who we are. We are bigger than our troubles, stronger than our differences. Whatever damage Singapore may suffer, willfully inflicted or otherwise, I know Singaporeans will not lay meek. We will not be dragged down by a family's petty disputes.
