Episode 29: Game of Thrones

The most dramatic impact of David Marshall's tenure of Chief Minister was that the prospect of independence suddenly seemed possible - and soon. The British would be leaving soon - but who would assume power afterwards? Marshall's resignation kicked off a deadly race for the Iron Throne of independent Singapore. In this episode, PJ Thum explains the political manoeuvering and treacherous alliances that began the moment Marshall stepped down, and how they would shape the next seven years.
