A Filipino columnist for the Manila Times wrote that Lee Kuan Yew (LKY), the redoubtable Singaporean leader who had a penchant to hector other leaders and lecture the West about Asian values, must be turning in his grave.

He said while his – that is LKY – country is still up in the charts for sheer performance, the family he has left behind is being torn apart by a family feud.

“His political dynasty may not be as cohesive or admirable as everyone supposed.

“In my view, what the dispute really hurts is his father’s sanctimony. He does not look holier than other people now,” he wrote.

He said LKY poked his nose into the business of others, and tried to tell them what to do.

“He made it official policy for Singapore to sue opposition politicians and journalists who criticised him and his government with expensive lawsuits in his homecourt, in order to drive them to bankruptcy or to submission.

“If Lee Hsien Loong sues his siblings to accomplish the same objective, he will drive Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy to disrepute and ridicule,” he said.Follow us on Social Media
