Dr Lee Wei Ling yesterday (15 Aug) said in her Facebook page that the current government of Singapore is distinctly different from the government which was headed by her father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. And that it is also different from the one in which he served as a Senior Minister.

In alluding to an unnamed journalist, she said that this government which is headed by her brother, Lee Hsien Loong, is less frank and upfront with Singaporeans. She reminded her readers that it can be voted out if it does not act for the welfare of its citizens.

A netizen, Joshua Chiang, cautioned Dr Lee against making such comments, lest she drew the ire of her sister-in-law. Joshua was reminding her of an incident in April this year, when Dr Lee had accused her brother of abusing his power to commemorate the one-year anniversary of his father’s passing in order to establish a dynasty.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong later rubbished his sister’s allegations as being “completely untrue”.  But not before his wife, Ho Ching, posted a picture of a monkey pointing its middle finger in her Facebook at about the same time Dr Lee posted the comments about her brother (story here: https://theindependent.sg.sg/ho-ching-posts-a-picture-of-a-monkey-raising-speculation-of-family-feud-further)

Dr Lee replied to Joshua and said that Madam Ho emailed her 3 weeks after the incident to clarify that the post was not targeted at her, but that it was from a “collection of photos to educate the general public about history, culture, nature, etc.”

“So, maybe the twitter newbie excuse she gave the public was not accurate,” Dr Lee said.

“As one friend of mine commented, what is a lady, much less the wife of the PM, doing with such a crude photo in her collection of photos,” she added.
