Authorities to question S’poreans who queued 10 hours for free cable car ride but didn’t queue for lying in state

Posted on 13 August 2015

They will be asked where exactly their allegiance lies: Lee Kuan Yew or cable car?


Thousands of Singaporeans are expected to be called in for questioning over the next few days.

This after it was reported that thousands of Singaporeans from all walks of life stood in line for up to 10 hours to take free cable car rides on Aug. 10, 2015, in commemoration of this year’s Golden Jubilee celebrations but did not queue up to pay respects at the lying in state in March 2015.

These Singaporeans suspected of prioritising free cable car rides above paying their last respects to Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew will be questioned by authorities about where exactly their allegiance lies.

One Singaporean, Ba Wang Chan, who is guilty of queuing up to nine hours for a free cable car ride but overlooked going for the lying in state, said sheepishly: “I know it is traitorous to spend time queuing up for free cable car but not for the lying in state, therefore, I am willing to accept all forms of punishment dished out to me by the state.”

“I also understand that the free cable car rides wouldn’t have happened had it not been for the nation-building efforts of our founding father Lee Kuan Yew.”

“I solemnly urge my fellow Singaporeans who queued up for free cable car rides but not the lying in state to turn ourselves in to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau, where they have a new building to deal with people like us.”

“We are truly sorry.”
