The following are some selected comments from the respondents.

Lee Kuan Yew’s children have chosen Facebook as the platform to have their squabble on. The younger children have levelled some serious accusations against the older child. They have expressed that they have no confidence in their older brother, who is also the Prime Minister of Singapore, to lead the country. PM Lee has responded to the accusations saying he will address them in parliament on 3rd July.

Prior to the Parliamentary address and debate, several Ministers have spoken up in support of PM Lee. Mr Lee Hsien Yang has also alleged that PM Lee is getting his Ministers to insult Lee Kuan Yew.
