PM Lee eats chicken wings in Redhill rather than chye tow kway from his own GRC

Posted on 14 June 2014

Political observers say this move can be construed as a deliberate snub of Roy Ngerng’s father.


It looks like the battle lines have been drawn.

Prime minister Lee Hsien Loong was photographed queuing up for fried chicken wings at a hawker centre in Redhill on June 12, 2014, when he could have been eating chye tow kway in Ang Mo Kio.

Professional political observers who saw the photo of PM Lee solemnly queuing up said this is a clear sign he is snubbing the CPF blogger, Roy Ngerng, whom he is suing for alleged defamation.

The choice of being photographed in a public food centre is politically motivated as the CPF blogger’s father is a famous chye tow kway seller in Ang Mo Kio, which is in PM Lee’s GRC.

Jiak Kway Seet, a 50-year-old man sitting at a coffee shop with his friends, said: “This is obviously a sign that PM Lee is snubbing the CPF blogger Roy Ngerng and his way of preparing for the court case, by playing this sort of high-level mind games.”

“This means a lot as he has shown that he would rather go to Redhill hawker centre and queue up by himself to buy chicken wings than go to his own ward in Ang Mo Kio, where he is an MP, and patronise the stalls there.”
