Lee Kuan Yew walks away from Tin Pei Ling in Parliament

Posted on 10 January 2012

There’s a video going viral on facebook. The two central characters? The man everyone loves to hate – Lee Kuan Yew, and the girl everyone wished never became an MP – Tin Pei Ling.

So this video apparently show The Old Man picking up his briefcase and walking away from Parliament just as Tin Pei Ling was starting to speak.

Now, there seems to be a consensus that The Old Man was disrespecting the Miss Tin. Because who walks away just as an MP is about to give a speech right?

But according to this video, which shows Minister Lui Tuck Yew giving a speech, Miss Tin was actually asking a question, and not giving a speech.

Give The Old Man a break. He’s 89 and probably has a weak bladder. You expect him to sit through every dull Q&A in parliament? Have some sympathy lah…
