CHEE SOON JUAN WRITES TO PM LEE TO CALL FOR A BY-ELECTION

Singapore Democratic Party's Chee Soon Juan has written to PM Lee to call for a By-Election for Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC in light of Mdm Halimah Yacob's resignation. He asked if PM Lee agrees with Mr Chan Chun Sing for previously saying that there will not be a By-Election. If he does not receive a response, he will "proceed to take the necessary steps to rectify the situation".

LEGAL ACTION AGAINST WP JUST A DISTRACTION FROM OXLEY SAGA & RESERVED PRESIDENCY!

Gilbert Goh thinks the legal action against Workers' Party is just a distraction from the problems plaguing Oxley saga and the upcoming Presidential election. He compared this to Ang Mo Kio Town Council's alleged corruption which was mysteriously solved by dismissing a general manager and settled out of public scrutiny.

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?
