First world parliament absolves PM Lee from abuse of power allegations

After two days of vigorous debates with the opposition MPs and PAP MPs asking tough questions and throwing everything they had to Hsien Loong, Singapore’s first world parliament has found Hsien Loong innocent of all the charges by his brother and sister on corruption or abuse of power. ESM Chok Tong said he has full confidence in Hsien Loong’s integrity. Minister Heng Swee Kiat said there is no abuse of power. 

Hsien Loong also said there is no abuse of power and demand the MPs in parliament to show proof. None of the MPs could come out with any proof that Hsien Loong has abused his position as the PM. The allegations by Hsien Yang and Wei Ling were thus unfounded, unjustified and unproven. It is not easy to tarnish the reputation of our incorruptible politicians, and the squeaky clean political system has stood the test of the day, its integrity intact, faith in the govt restored. They are not paid millions for nothing.
Now that these serious allegations are out of the way and confidence has been restored on Hsien Loong as the PAP leader, the govt and the Civil Service, everything is back to normal. Chok Tong told the Parliament to move on.
 

What is left outstanding is the dispute on Lee Kuan Yew’s will on his house. This is a private matter and both Hsien Yang and Wei Ling have written a facebook post that they would settle these matters privately or pursue them in court. Latest is that their conditional truce is not agreeable to Hsien Loong and everyone is waiting for Act 2 to start.
 

The whole episode has ended just like a storm in a tea cup. Hsien Yang and Wei Ling should count themselves lucky for being the brother and sister of Hsien Loong. Otherwise, with such serious allegations and unable to prove them, they would be sued till their pants dropped.
 

Whatever, the storm has subsided and calm has returned to the island. The MPs and ministers can now go home and have a well deserved rest after posting so many challenging and difficult questions to Hsien Loong in Parliament. Not to forget the ministers and MPs that vigorously came out to defend their leader and forgot that they were supposed to ask questions about the allegations. They also did exceptionally well in their arguments and defence of Hsien Loong. They should deserve more than just a good rest. How about a bigger bonus or promotion?
 

Singaporeans have again been given a chance to watch how first world Parliament worked in full transparency without everything laid on the table, all above board, nothing to hide, and how false allegations without proof are easily dispatched to the waste bin. Our Parliament is a good example for others to learn from as a role model parliament of the first world.

GIC under PM Lee last year "achieved" a 20-year annualised real rate of return of 3.7%, down from previous year's 4.0%, the Straits Times said.

Does that mean last year GIC posted an annual rate loss of 2.0%, according to back-of-envelope calculation ??

Things stand still before disaster strikes.

This is like getting stunned and then realises that it is too late for salvation. lt is the So-called the Calm before the Storm.

Nothing good can come out of the Family Saga. As it id also dragged into the Parliament, which is the Most Horrible Development; at stake is the Integrity of the Leadership. A dent is the Least Damage, worse shall be the loss of confidences in the Rulers. At it's worst would be the Irrepairable Kinship of the First Family and the People's distrust of the Government.

lt is a costly ramification for Sin in the Near Future.

Hope the US Senate and Congress, and China's People's Congress, and Russia's Parliament learn from Singapore. So easy to settle any accusation made against the top leaders. A lot of time is saved. People's money saved too. And most important of all don't need to face embarrassments in Court of Laws or get grilled in a Commission of Inquiry. So nice and simple and easy. Just Wonderful!

No wonder they paid themselves by the millions of dollars of taxpayers money. Must pay them more. How about one billion dollars for the PM, and scale downwards to the small fry who act as car door opener?

Where to get the money to pay them?

Just increase taxes lah. Water tax increase by 100%. 30% is too little lah. And ERP gantries operate 24 hours on a flat rate of $10 per gantry per entry, and including exits also - like that they can collect two ways, better right?

And confiscate all the CPF savings. Don't need to worry no money to return to the contributors. Just pass a law in Pap-Lee-Men. With 81 seats majority in Parliament any law, no matter how absurd also can be passed, right? So easy.

All that is required is to tell the heart not to worry about conscience, and tell the brain not to worry about moral and ethics. So simple.

Such a good system of government. The whole world must emulate to the fullest. Then they can also have First World Pap-Lee-Men.

The following poem was posted by "Aspiring Historian" at TRE:

The Era of Tyranny Has Begun

Meritocracy led to Elitism;
Elitism led to Cronyism;
Cronyism led to Nepotism;
Nepotism led to Despotism; and finally,
Despotism led to Tyranny.
The Era of Tyranny has begun,

Without us knowing it,
Though lurking in the dark:
Think of Roy and Amos,
If you didn’t get it then.
Have you got it now?
If yes, good for you.

Wtih the Whiter-than-White
All standing tall;
Self-Cleansing,
Self-Praising,
Self-Honouring,
Self-Condescending.

Self as Accused,
Self as Witness,
Self as Evidence,
Self as Prosecutor,
Self as Jury,
Self as Judge,

Not in Kangaroos’ Court
But in the Sacred Parliament
With 81 King’s horses and men,
Robotic, Subservient, Obedient,
Drunk by Power till senseless,
Faculty of reason is gone.

Decorum and Respect gone.
Ethics and Moral also gone.
Code of Conduct never heard.
Did their very best;
Did their damnest best,
Did what they do best.

Led by the Oldest in the Pack
Of wolves, foxes, hyenas,
Snakes, sharks and vampires;
Plus one crocodile that cries.
These beasts know only one thing:
Devour the weak and Protect the King

Siblings, brother, sister or not,
From same mother’s womb or not,
From same father’s sperm or not,
From same The First Family or not,
And for Singapore or not.
Attack, attack, attack …..

These beasts’ ferocity
Shown with fangs displayed
In full International View,
Orchestrated behind the scene,
Shown their decadence
Of character and substance.

Yes, whip has been lifted,
Yes, howl and scream aloud
As much as you ever “can”
Throw you questions at me:
Strip me, challenge me,
But no renumeration, no promotion.

Yes, my whip has been lifted
High above my head, I mean.
Ready to bring down hard,
Upon your head, skin and hide.
Dare you to question me?
I know you cowardy minions won’t.

Shameless and Shameful,
Graceless and Disgraceful,
Merciless and Revengeful;
Pounding and Crying,
Shouting and Hailing,
The beasts went on and on.

As if the World is Empty
Of people and pinions,
As if the World is a Stage
And they are only actors.
In Shakespeare’s McBeth,
Othello, Tempest and Hamlet?

Or A Mid Summer Night’s Dream,
All’s Well That Ends Well,
As You Like It,
Measure for Measure,
The Comedy of Errors, or
Love’s Labour ’s Lost?

Oh, yes, I forgot:
Much Ado About Nothing!

Your headline is very misleading.
When WP asked voters to vote for first world parliament, 60% then voted for 3rd world leh. In 2015 70% went back to stay in 3rd world again. So they never was any first world to begin with.

Hpl case by LKY was more than 20 years ago. Aparrentlt ownself checked ownself still valid. If this is not republicky standard, I don't know what is. Two wrongs doesnt make one right. The precedents have been set. Many more will come.

Only winner is amos yee. He can now tell US court, see - if the siblings must run for their life, what's more a powerless mortal like him. His case is solidly strong now.

Hi Uncle Redbean, your sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek article has not gone un-noticed I am sure. Watch out for shadows tailing you. Be careful, very careful in what you write. You must be aware there is a possibility that your door will be knocked in the middle of the night and wahlah, Redbean will be no more, vanished and never heard of again. In this uniquely country, where one party has 70% mandate, your absence will only be missed by a handful. The rest will cheer your departure. Take heed, sometimes it is better to keep your head down.

Hahahahahaha.

Not only that, first world electorate will also return PM Lee and PAP to power in the next election.

If this happens, this will be even a more powderful one to absolve PM Lee from abuse of power allegations, tio bo?

So do you think this will happen? Or rather what are the chances this will happen? 93% chance? 100% chance?

So far I think uncle rb is ok leh.

Don't be too serious in life.

But I think as long as PAP is the govt of the day, they will allow some kpkb here and there.

Because PAP knows....people will only kpkb and kpkb but when come to voting......PAP!

So it is OK lah!

The PAP should call a snap election. If they can get more votes than the last GE, it means the people are fully behind the PM and the PAP.

It will be conclusive proof that the allegations are false, the people voted and said so. No more case. Move on.

93% very tiok.

Or 100% very tiok if Ah Hia loses Aljunied and Ah Huat also lose Hougang next GE.

Or maybe Hougang will disappear next GE.

Or Sinkieland become one big GRC with 100 MPs.

So either a opposition party contest just one GRC with 100 candidates as one party or cannot contest. But how to get 100 candidates for one opposition party? Even strongest opposition WP could only get 28 candidates in last GE!

So winner party will win 100% seats, or loser party lose all seats.

Possible or not? What do you think?

Singapore first family feud over 38 Oxley Road - TomoNews

Messanger of DEATH said...

Next GE is 3 more years to go. During these e years, a lot of things can happen. Eg:

1. PM Lee got cancer again. This time he will surely be called up by his father, mother and first wife Dr Wong Ming Yang.

2. ESM Goh may join LKY in Half-Way House because of old age and bad karma.

3. PAP may face a growing internal discontent and dissent.

4. Opposition Parties may close rank and join forces.

5. The Economy may drop to rock bottom and hundreds of thousands of people suffer badly.

6. Confidence in the Government drop to rock bottom because it cannot deliver.

7. Other more capable young blood such as the children of prominent Civil Servants and Business Orgn CEOs or owners may come out to serve the people.

8. China already started tunnelling the Kra Canal. Three years time it may complete. Consequences for Singapore will be immeasurable.

9. China already started helping Malaysia to built two ports with a highway joining them from east to west. Three years' time, they may be ready. Singapore PSA may have to suck thumbs.

10. Professor Kishore and people like him may contest the Elections.

11. Some of the PAP minions may step down, resign or die prematurely because of eating too much good food.

12. Indonesia and Malaysia may join force to compete with or sabotage Singapore in all fields, especially trade and tourism.

13. US may pull of from Singapore Naval Base.

14. Japan may have more natural disasters and nuclear disasters. Their investments in and aids to Singapore may be drastically reduced.

15 Korean War No 2 may take place. It will most likely lead to Nuclear War and World War 3. Singapore may be obliterated.

So, stop counting eggs before they are hatched.

Some believe that if you keep telling the same lie many times, others will start to believe you. Some people also said if you cry "Wolf" too many times, nobody will believe you. So this kind of immature tactics may back-fire.

1. PM Lee got cancer again. This time he will surely be called up by his father, mother and first wife Dr Wong Ming Yang.

Son Li Hongyi will take over lah. And wife Ho Ching will still be around to ensure that. So not to worry for PM Lee, OK?

2. ESM Goh may join LKY in Half-Way House because of old age and bad karma.

ESM Goh will retire anyway because I don't think he want to be another LKY because Li Hongyi is not his son or grandson.

3. PAP may face a growing internal discontent and dissent.

As long as got million $ pay for ministers and the opposition is not ready to be govt, who in PAP is stupid to create growing internal discontent and dissent?

4. Opposition Parties may close rank and join forces.

If opposition parties cannot do it now, what makes you think they can do so by next GE?

5. The Economy may drop to rock bottom and hundreds of thousands of people suffer badly.

The Economy is already very bad now and hundreds of thousands of people are suffering badly, and yet Hong Lim Park is still quite quiet, not to say on the streets.

6. Confidence in the Government drop to rock bottom because it cannot deliver.

PAP Government already could not deliver in 2015 and yet 70% still voted for PAP.

7. Other more capable young blood such as the children of prominent Civil Servants and Business Orgn CEOs or owners may come out to serve the people.

If they cannot do it now, what makes you think they can do so by next GE?

8. China already started tunnelling the Kra Canal. Three years time it may complete. Consequences for Singapore will be immeasurable.

This one not so easy lah. If possible maybe only 20 years down the road. Definitely not happen in the next few years.

9. China already started helping Malaysia to built two ports with a highway joining them from east to west. Three years' time, they may be ready. Singapore PSA may have to suck thumbs.

If Malaysia can boleh, already boleh lah. If cannot, even China cannot help them lah. And China is more interested in helping themselves than Malaysia.

10. Professor Kishore and people like him may contest the Elections.

If Kishore contest, he will become another Tan Jee Say. I think Kishore not stupid lah.

11. Some of the PAP minions may step down, resign or die prematurely because of eating too much good food.

Not many lah. Because PAP minions are smart, so they don't overeat if they want to enjoy life longer.

12. Indonesia and Malaysia may join force to compete with or sabotage Singapore in all fields, especially trade and tourism.

If they cannot do it now, what makes you think they can do so by next GE?

13. US may pull of from Singapore Naval Base.

Why would US want to pull out of Singapore Naval Base?

14. Japan may have more natural disasters and nuclear disasters. Their investments in and aids to Singapore may be drastically reduced.

I don't think Japan has that many investments and aids to Singapore lah. Japan invest a lot in China you know, and make China the factory of the world. What has tiny Singapore got to offer to Japan in return for their investments?

15 Korean War No 2 may take place. It will most likely lead to Nuclear War and World War 3. Singapore may be obliterated.

Trump not stupid to create Korean War No 2 lah. It is lose, lose, lose for all sides.

Some believe that if you keep telling the same lie many times, others will start to believe you. Some people also said if you cry "Wolf" too many times, nobody will believe you. So this kind of immature tactics may back-fire.

If event has not happen yet, it is not a lie, just a prediction. And a good prediction is based on current sound truths and reality, and also past events.

Me foresee that if Sg loses its' geographical advantages in port services and trades, Sinkies shall face tremendous challenged which will translate to growing discontent with the Government anf lead to chaos and strifes.

As Sg becomes more difficult to manage anf rule, elites and the better off will quit Sg in droves as safety gets compromise due to social upheavels.

The Rulers will quit their political ambitions and leave Sg with their families yo live life of plenty and in opulence.

lt is highly probable that Sg shall br left high and dry in one or two decades time as it runs out of competition with other countries.

Sin is near the Abyss, however, only the Poor Sinkies will suffer as the Smarter One will leave for greener pastures as things get
awry and ugly ad time progresses.

SINGAPORE IS BEING RULE BY A PACK OF SELF-SERVING NIMCOMPOOPS.

Red Dotters are waiting to live happily ever after with 100% PAP Parliament.

They will have the Government that they wished for, hoped for, asked for and voted for.

Leemocracy really works. Especially first world leemocracy with first world Parliament. Forget communism, dictatorship, autocracy or democracy.

You can also, if that time comes, forget about your CPF, how many wills you make, how many mansions, branded cars, watches, diamonds etc. The PAP will handle everything for you, including your coffin money.

"LHY & LWL have both been in the inner circle, at least until 2015. Unlike the usual opposition politicians or ordinary Sinkies or even international news organisations, both of them have 1st hand knowledge of all the skeletons in the cupboard — not only of LHL, but also of Old Fart, PAP, and many other current and ex Ministers as well.

If LHL sue them, they will use the nuclear option and reveal all the SHIT that have been contained since 1950.

It will definitely cause a backlash against PAPies by ordinary Sinkies. And high chance of losing a few GRCs in the next GE. LHL & PAPies are NOT PREPARED to take this risk.

As for the 2 siblings, they are prepared to press the nuclear button — do you think they haven’t prepared their fortunes & back door escape plans?? Don’t be surprised that before their announcement on June 14, most of their assets already moved overseas liao." (Unquote)

Right you are. That's why both of them said they had formidable evidence.

All these skeletons will be exposed sooner or later no matter how you covered them.

Paper cannot cover Fire.

If not exposed by the siblings, be exposed by others when they are also dissatisfied or been cornered by the PAPies.

This is God's Way of natural Karma. Why LKY's adamant insistence of demolishing the House?? Many skeletons in the basement??

Hello, Good Morning, Sir (My Salute to you!)

For so many years you have been writing and writing, after you starte the Forum. I was one of your regular readers and visitors until today. Sometimes, I make comments. Sometimes I hibernate (due to other commitments or self retreat to the mountains for some peaceful calm-abiding meditation and further teachings by my Very Old Master up in the Himalayas.).

Once I had six blogs running concurrently, because I was too free. I have since closed them all down because of my focus on the development of my small piece of land in Australia. However, your relentless and persistently continuity of writing for the good of the people of Singapore as a whole in particular, and the World in general, I am encouraged by your efforts to restart my own blog. My new blog will not be politically correct, because since you have been writing politically correct pieces, the Beast still do not appreciate and got worked up, why is there a need now to write politically correct things. I would just shoot straight either taking aim correctly or from my hip. I would just write from my heart. If anyone come knocking at my door in the middle of the night, so be it. The use of FEAR as a weapon can only go so far. Everything has a limit. There have been tyrants even more ruthless and deadly in the past. They are all gone to dust. The beauty of human beans is the ability to separate right from wrong. Only beasts cannot separate right from wrong because they are beasts. Even animals can separate right from wrong. Only beasts cannot.

Some human "beens" (not beans) simply cannot separate right from wrong because of money, power, greed, whatever. These "beens" we cannot call them human beans or beings. To be nice, we call them "beens" meaning have been a human before. To be crude, we call them "beasts". They have transformed themselves from the human form to beasts, just like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

The point I want to make here is: Please continue your excellent efforts to educate the dafts, dumbs and idiots of Singapore. This is no easy task. These dafts, dumbs and idiots have closed minds or ineducable brains. However, they need repeated dosage of medicines, again and again, knocking and knocking upon their heads until they finally wake up. The task is tedious and long, with no rewards and no light at the end of the tunnel. But I believe a few good men like you can make the difference between a better world or a gone-case world.

Well Done! Mr Chua Chin Leng! Keep up your Excellent Works!
SALUTE, SALUTE, SALUTE!

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Thank you Dragonfly. This is a tedious unending journey, and thankless task.

If a few people can find light and tell the difference between truth and lies, that would be good enough for me.
