Kwa Geok Choo

Breaking my morning silence to the passing of another historical figure in the history of Singapore. She stood shoulder to shoulder with the first generation of leaders including her husband Lee Kuan Yew and the likes of Yusof Ishak, Goh Keng Swee, S Rajaratnam, Toh Chin Chye, E W Barker, and the rest of the political leaders of the founding years. Wife of a Prime Minister, mother of a Prime Minister and could be grandmother of another Prime Minister. Everything needed to be said have been said and will be said in the official media. Over the next few days Singaporeans will say farewell to this quiet pillar of strength in PAP leadership.

The education system in Sin got to stop propagating propaganda, it's not going to do Singapore any good. Going by wat had been said and written about the demises of Senior Minister of State and Mrs Lee Kuan Yew, any more promotion of the leadership in the education system is going to backfire. There is no way to erase all the literatures in the Net that have been written lately. If the first few generations of leaders are getting all the brickbats due to the wholesale unhappiness of the people, the younger leaders have little hope of trust from the masses. They got to start on a new slate to gain the confidence of the people. Should they failed, there will be absolutely no nationhood to talk about at all.
