PM LEE WAS WRONG, LHY DID NOT WANT TO PURCHASE HOUSE FOR $1

In her Facebook post, Dr Lee wrote that when PM Lee offered to sell the house to her for $1, she was the one who had immediately asked Lee Hsien Yang to be a part of the deal.

This, she clarified, was because she "have neither the time, nor the inclination to deal with the house on my own. Hsien Yang did not ask to join me in purchasing the house for $1". Her statement contradicts those made by PM Lee in Parliament, when he had said Lee Hsien Yang wanted to be part of the deal immediately once it was made know the house would be sold at $1.

Dr Lee also reiterated the fact that Lee Hsien Yang and herself wanted the house demolished as soon as she no longer needs it just as in LKY's will, and to convert it to a public garden. Both siblings said they were not planning to profit in any way from the deal offered by PM Lee.

LEONG SZE HIAN: IF OXLEY RD ACCUSATIONS ARE BASELESS, WHY SO MANY MINISTERS DEFENDING PM LEE?

If indeed, and since all the allegations are “baseless” with “no evidence” – why did so many members of Government take to social media and the mainstream media, to make their own counter “baseless” allegations with “no evidence”? Is it not below the dignity of the Government to resort to such tactics and actions?

Why did we consume so much of everything in the last two weeks or so, to damage Singapore’s reputation internationally, given that the allegations are “baseless” and with “no evidence”? Whilst allegations of conflicts of interest may be subjective – arguably, the actions of those alleged may be crystal clear!

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”?

WHY CAN'T GOVT JUST HONOUR LKY AND GRANT HIM HIS LAST WISH?

No one has suggested that LHY had other ulterior motives or special benefits in wanting the house demolished, except to honour his father's wish. He wanted it demolished even when LHL was the named beneficiary. Subsequently, he paid good money to buy it from LHL to have his sister continue staying there and demolished when it was time. Then to turn it into a memorial garden, if need be. I see in him a fervent desire to honour his father's wish and the absence of a selfish motive.

SYLVIA LIM: FORMER PM LAWYER TURNED AG CANNOT BE A PART OF OXLEY RD DISCUSSIONS

There is a real possibility of a conflict of interest, and Ms Sylvia Lim questioned if both have recused themselves from advising the Government on the Oxley Road issue. Ms Lim raised the fact that this should be a matter of concern to each and every Singaporean who wishes to see Singapore as the bastion that upholds the rule of law.

The question now that needs answering is has the AGC been already giving advice to the committee about Oxley Road? And if they have, who exactly in AGC is giving the advice? Has the AG himself, being a personal lawyer of PM Lee before, recused himself from touching the files of the case, as he had himself represented PM Lee in his personal capacity as a beneficiary?

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.

PM LEE: PARLIAMENT RIGHT PLATFORM TO EXPLAIN HIMSELF

That is why as PM he has a duty to all MPs to respond to the allegations thrown by his siblings, and explain himself to MPs. And the only way to reach out to all MPs is to do this via Parliament, where all the MPs can then listen to his explanations, and ask questions themselves, if the need arises. He also indicated that he needs to let Singaporeans know what is happening, and Parliament is the only way he can reach out to everybody.

PM Lee also said the allegations made against him and his Government are baseless, but damage to Singapore's reputation have already been made. PM Lee said if the allegations are left unrebutted, they can affect Singaporean's confidence in the Government.

However, PM Lee did not say if the Parliament rebuttals are clearly one-sided, as only his side of the story can be aired in a public domain. The siblings will be left to taking to their Facebook profiles again to throw more allegations, and there will be more rebuttals. This has no end in sight.

TAN JEE SAY: PM LEE, PLEASE RESIGN, YOU HAVE TARNISHED SINGAPORE'S REPUTATION

I know, along with many Singaporeans, that you must be feeling very troubled these two and a half weeks. But we also know that you are a man with a very strong will. As you told Singaporeans at a rally during the 2015 General Election, "Whoever governs Singapore must have that iron in him or give it up."

But giving up does not necessarily mean weakness in a person if it is done for noble reasons that are for the greater good of society. In view of what had happened between you and your siblings in the last few years that exploded in full public view only recently, I would like to make this plea to you, "Dear Prime Minister, please think of your Country, Family and Colleagues, and resign from the premiership now!"

PLEASE SAVE SINGAPORE FROM THESE WAYANG MINISTERS. LHY, JOIN THE OPPOSITION!

But never mind that, party whip removed or not, all the Ministers are out in full force defending the PM. First the big shots, Teo Chee Hean, Shanmugam, Tharman. All came out and said PM Lee cted in the best interest of the country, and they were no conflict of interest. Then other Ministers now starting to support. Indranee Rajah, Lawrence Wong. So, if all support, then who would ask the relevant questions? Party whip lifted or not, all of the ruling party are solidly behind PM, supporting him.

We really need saving. Lee Hsien Yang, sir, keep doing what you are doing, and go that one step further. Join the opposition. Save us from these drama yes men and women. Save Singapore. Please!
