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.

ESM GOH: SIBLINGS JEALOUSY THE CRUX OF THE ISSUE, SG REPUTATION BE DAMNED

In case anyone says ESM Goh did not say that, his exact words about how Lee Hsien Yang and his wife are free telling others were "it is clear that their goal is to bring Lee Hsien Loong down as PM, regardless of the huge collateral damage suffered by the Government and Singaporeans. It is now no more a cynical parlour game. If the Lee siblings choose to squander the good name and legacy of ee Kuan Yew, and tear their relationship apart, it is tragic but a family affair. But if in the process of their self destruction, they destroy Singapore too, that is a public affair. So basically, according to ESM Goh, this is just a petty siblings quarrel and jealousy where the younger ones just want the older brother to step down as PM, and don't care at all about Singapore's reputation in the eyes of the world.

CAN PM LEE REALLY RECUSED HIMSELF FROM OXLEY ROAD SAGA?

How can the PM recused himself (“I recused myself from all discussions and decisions”) – and yet participated – such as making three statutory declarations to the ministerial committee? In this regard, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary – “recused” means “to disqualify (oneself) as judge in a particular case; broadly : to remove (oneself) from participation to avoid a conflict of interest” – what is the ministerial committee’s understanding of “recused”?

GOVT IN ALL SORTS OF TROUBLE DUE TO BAD KARMA!

Until PM Lee "sets thing right" by: Commencing an Independent query like AHTC, Replace the 2 AGs, MND and Law Minister who made boo boos resulting in today's situation and challenging his 2 siblings in Court to demonstrate that truly no one is above the law! Otherwise, by closing this serious issue prematurely with sheer numbers will only cause Singapore's stature to be diminished and the PAP candidates, unable to "lift their heads up high".

MINISTERS GO ALL OUT TO DEFEND BIG BROTHER LOONG

And as expected, while the whip was conveniently lifted for PAP MPs to question their boss in Parliament on the Oxley Road saga, no one from PAP did that so far. In fact, DPM Teo followed up PM Lee's statement with his own statement, followed by Minister for National Development Lawrence Wong also addressing Parliament. Instead of questioning PM Lee on this issue, they went all guns blazing defending the Saga in PM Lee's favour. In fact, they cast further questions on the integrity of Lee Hsien Yang and Dr Lee Wei Ling. In fact, they painted the picture that the allegations made by the siblings are all baseless, that all of the Ministers have acted in accordance to what is accepted, and they had kept the siblings in the loop on all the matter that they have decided on the matter. So, what is this Parliamentary sitting about? To elaborate more on the issue at hand about Oxley Road, or to defend PM Lee, sings his merits, and paint his siblings as the villains? The way the Ministers are defending their boss, it would seem so.

It states that “MPs, elected and nominated and from both sides of the House, have filed questions on the issue and have indicated that they will speak during the session.”

LEE HSIEN YANG: MY BROTHER WILL WHITEWASH HIMSELF IN PARLIAMENT, ITS ABUSE OF HIS POWER

We have serious concerns with Lee Hsien Loong’s attempt to cover-up and whitewash himself in Parliament on 3 July 2017. We have begun to show evidence of his misuse of his position and influence to drive his personal agenda. This is yet another example. This Parliamentary session is a forum that again places Hsien Loong before his subordinates. They lack both sufficient background and evidence of the numerous instances of abuse and conflicts of interest, many yet to be raised.

PRITAM SINGH TELLS PM LEE TO ALLOW LEE HSIEN YANG AIRTIME IN PARLIAMENT TO BE FAIR

In the interests of fairness, Mr Lee should be allowed to tell his story to Parliament too. A Select Committee would allow MPs the opportunity to call up any witness, including the Prime Minister or anyone else to get to the truth of the matter behind the allegations of abuse of power. By way of a parliamentary question, I have asked the Prime Minister to support the setting up of a Select Committee to look into the serious allegations made against him. The use of Select Committees for such a purpose is nothing new. The PAP have used Select Committees to look into allegations made against the Government in the past.

38 OXLEY ROAD PARLIAMENTARY ENQUIRY JUST ANOTHER WAYANG?

PM said he'll lift the whip only for the upcoming Parliament session on 3 Jul and furthermore, asked all MPs to be sure of raising any and all queries on BEHALF of their constituents. Problem is, how are the various MPs going to know what to ask Cabinet if there's been no Public Consultation Exercises similar to the one held for the Our Singapore Conversation with all Citizens?

PPL SHLD PRESSURISE THEIR MP TO CONVENE AN INQUIRY INTO LEE FAMILY DISPUTE

A concerned citizen hoped for Singaporeans, especially residents of Aljunied GRC and Hougang should pressurise their MPs to convene an independent inquiry into the Lee family dispute. "This was also done previously when the late honorable JBJ had launched accusations against LKY both inside and outside of Parliament." He fears that if this is not done, it will have serious implications for Singapore as we may be exploited by other countries.
