Lee Kuan Yew – Do You Miss Him? : A Poll

By: Obbana Rajah

As today marks the 3rd death anniversary of Singapore’s founding father, we took a poll amongst Singaporeans to find out if they still miss this prominent figure.

Out of the 50 people asked, a whopping 43 said that they do indeed miss this founding father.

Those polled ranged in age from 15 to 78, and there seemed to be an overall consensus.

One said, “Parliamentary speeches just aren’t the same without him”.

Another also expressed rather succinctly, “Yes, very much”.

Someone from the pioneer generation smiled and fondly added, “Yes, of course I miss Mr Lee Kuan Yew. He was a wonderful man who did many things for this country”.

However, one commenter, who wished to be anonymous explained, “I’m not in the generation that feels really impacted by him. Myself and those in my age-group might be part of a spoilt generation so we have taken both him and all his accomplishments for granted”.

Most do miss him dearly.

Do you?
