Happy Families - LKY’s Succession Dilemma

 “We are not politicians and do not wish to see Singapore embroiled in a never-ending public argument. For now, we will cease presenting further evidence on social media, provided that we and our father’s wish are not attacked or misrepresented.” This statement appeared on Facebook representing the siblings of Singapore Prime Minister: Lee Hsien Yang and Lee Wei Ling. Today we speak to a man who wrote about the elder Lee’s history and inner motivations to understand the recent family feud.
