Since they don’t fancy him, they don’t deserve to live in Singapore.
Dear New Nation,
I read with consternation this letter written by a Straits Times reader: “Take those who disrespect Lee Kuan Yew to task“.
In it, the letter writer wrote that individuals who make disparaging comments about Lee Kuan Yew must be taken to task by raising the issue with the relevant authorities or the individuals’ respective professional or governing bodies as there is zero tolerance.
I feel that this letter is disappointing and not representative of the views of true blue Singaporeans, by and large.
This is because the letter writer did not specifically say what should be done to those Singaporeans who did not go to Parliament House personally to pay their last respects to Lee Kuan Yew lying in state.
Let me quote you some shocking statistics: Over the last few days, there had been an outpouring of grief and long lines of eight-hour waiting times to pay respects to Lee Kuan Yew.
However, as of Saturday, March 28, 2015, about 330,000 people — equivalent to 10 percent of Singapore’s citizen population — have visited Parliament House to pay their respects to Lee Kuan Yew ahead of his cremation, officials said.
Think about this. Let this sink in.
This means that up to 90 percent of people in Singapore have failed to pay their last respects to Lee Kuan Yew.
This is unacceptable.
Who are these people? Who do they think they are? Or rather, who do they think they can be without Lee Kuan Yew?
It is clear as day to me that this widespread absenteeism must be nipped in the bud.
I strongly urge the authorities to weed out these heretics and put them on a boat at the earliest hour and drive them away from Singapore into the ocean where they can be fed to the fishes.
Revoke their citizenship as they clearly do not appreciate it.
If the authorities do not swiftly act on this complaint, I will have no choice but to take matters into my own hands and seek my own resolution.
Which is to write an angry letter to the Straits Times, which I have full confidence they will publish because they publish anything, and just you wait and see.
