Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

British Prime Minister David Cameron was in Singapore for a two-day official visit on July 28, 2015.

When he was here, he paid tribute to founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew in his lecture organised by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

PM Cameron praised Lee Kuan Yew for rooting out corruption, which helped give people confidence to invest in Singapore.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Actually Lee Kuan Yew made Singapore happen by kicking out the British.”
Ang Mo Kwee, 42-year-old chamber maid

 

sian-half-uncle “No one ever seems to praise Lee Hsien Loong for fighting corruption.”
Mei Chu Xi, 70-year-old ex-coolie

 

happy-bird-girl “If David Cameron thought having a lecture about Lee Kuan Yew in Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy looked like a mere coincidence, he was failing.”
Zhen Qiao, 17-year-old professional bar top dancer
