Whatever ones' opinion of Singapore goal keeper, MM Lee Kuan Yew, the latest of latest is one of Islamophobia
Endearing himself to neighbours has not been his forte. His faux pas in the Johor criminals and the marginalised Chinese comments drew another official apology. Justified yellow card offences.
His latest, a red card this time, will not bring him any closer. It will in fact alienate him further not only from his immediate neighbours but the Muslim world as well.
'I would say today, we can integrate all religions and races except Islam," he said in "Lee Kuan Yew: Hard Truths to Keep Singapore Going," a new book containing his typically frank views on the city-state and its future.'
Player manager, Harry Lee, prides himself the father of squeaky clean team Singapore. Is it really? Allegations here and there suggests otherwise.
"Andy Xie's resignation as Morgan Stanley's chief economist in Asia last week followed an e-mail in which he characterized Singapore as an economic failure dependent on illicit money from Indonesia and China"
The DAP (originally the Malaysian branch of the Singapore People's Action Party, PAP) Harry Lee Supporters Club, which sing his praise of "meritocracy" policies, attests to his track record. No wonder they are his fan boys.
"While this discrimination is not sparking a reaction that threatens the regime in the short term, the resulting injustices are certainly undermining the myth that the regime operates on meritocratic principles."Michael D. Barr
Elections looms in Singapore.
13 May 1969 was a tragic episode in our history. It is a subject matter in many elections campaigns because we do not want history repeating itself.
This is Old Fart's May 13 bogeyman strategy, as opposition parties in Malaysia often accuse the BN of exercising.
The difference is that its an authentic phantom bogey man strategy, a phantom as in phantom voters, a figment of his infertile imagination.
Lee Kuan Yew has scored his worst own goal.
