Lee Kuan Yew continues to keep reporters jumpy, on their toes at SGH

Posted on 18 March 2015

He has always toyed with reporters.


Reporters from the Singapore media and worldwide were kept occupied and on their toes throughout Wednesday, March 18, 2015, as Lee Kuan Yew continues to toy with them while resting in hospital.

Know to have little regard for the role of the press and news people in particular, Singapore’s first prime minister would issue take downs of articles and throw reporters out of his office in tears during his tenure as the leader of the city-state.

One reporter who was at SGH the whole day since early this morning, said: “It’s almost as if he knows we are here and he just wants to keep us waiting.”

“And when we least expect it, he catches us all by surprise.”

“He will always have the last word. Then and even now. He will.”
