INSENSITIVE TO ASK LEE WEI LING TO VACATE OXLEY HOME JUST TO RESOLVE DISPUTE

PM Lee should abide by laws and respect LKY's wish to have his house demolished. That being said, people should stop asking Lee Wei Ling to move out of her house so that they can demolish it and replace it with some memorial. "Shame on you for not realising that the house is not just a physical building to Lee Wei Ling. It is a place, a home, where she lived in for more than 60 years, where she grew up in with her parents, where she was born in and where she saw her father care for her mother in her dying days. And you want her to move out because you want this inconvenient issue settled asap? Why? Because it is an embarrassment to us all? That is such an insensitive thing to do, it is really appalling." For those who think she should move out asap, please do take some time to ponder what a home is.

EX-MP IRENE NG: DEMOLISH OXLEY RD HOUSE SO WE CAN ALL MOVE ON!

Former MP Irene Ng has come up with a brilliant idea to resolve the FamiLEE dispute by asking for 38 Oxley Rd to be demolished NOW. "I believe that as long as the core issue remains – what to do with the house – and as long as the house stands, the saga will not end. It will be a running sore. The Lee family will continue to suffer, and we will not be spared... To end the saga now by demolishing the house, all parties involved have to pay a price... Demolish the house, end the saga now, and let's all move on."

38 OXLEY ROAD DISPUTE SHOWS HOW NARROW MINDED PRO-GOVT SUPPORTERS ARE

38 Oxley Road might seem to be a debate on what the late Lee Kuan Yew wanted to do with his house, or what he did not want to do, the case of abuse of power in the role of organs of state or even the question of "kakinangs" in key appointments such as that of the attorney general's role and the that of the deputy attorney general.

DPM TEO: WHY IS LHY SO HURT? “THIS IS NOT THE HSIEN YANG I KNEW”

DPM Teo Chee Hean recounted his impressions of the Lee siblings in hopes that they will not accuse the PM just because they are unhappy about having to clarify their father's last wishes. While he said "the Hsien Loong I see now is the same Hsien Loong I have known all these years - an upright person who stands by his principles, and does what is right..." he continued that "the Hsien Yang I see now is not the Hsien Yang I knew". He did not understand why LHY is so consumed by hurt and hopes he will "find peace and solace within himself" in due time. As for Lee Wei Ling, DPM Teo guessed she must have gone through difficult times because of her parents and her own health, and wished for her to have a healthy, long life.

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.

OXLEY RD DISPUTE SHOWS DIFFERENT LAWS FOR ELITES, HOW CAN WE “NORMAL PPL” BE CONFIDENT?

Our reader is disappointed by the Oxley Road dispute as it shows double standards in Singapore - one set of laws for the elite, and another for ordinary Singaporeans. LHY and LWL are allowed to cast aspersions at the PM over a course of 2 weeks without facing any legal action while less powerful Singaporeans are subjected to the law of defamation and lawsuit if they do the same. "How do you explain, Mr Tharman, this double standards? You said... 'Have confidence, folks.' Perhaps you should try on the shoes of those who have been sued, bankrupted or gone into exile. As one who supports you being PM, I am disappointed at your nonchalance in this saga."
