|Without supporting hands, can he stand on his own two feet?|
It was easy to see how NKF's TT Durai was much loved and admired in his heydays. After all, he did raise all those millions that made possible subsidized dialysis treatments on a large scale. But when he helped himself to the money on the table, he self destructed his own legacy. Lee is probably doing the same by making a pig of himself at the buffet spread.
Lee was in government for 52 years, including 31 years drawing prime minister pay. Hasn't he accumulated enough to pay for his own expenses? From the photograph, one can see the kind of support he needs to avoid toppling over the champagne glasses (ghostly hand is probably a poor attempt at photoshop by the MSM). We would really prefer to remember him in healthier days, braving the rain speaking to record crowds at a Fullerton Rally (sans self serving apologies, sincere or otherwise), picking himself up after being knocked down a drain by a detractor, and standing up to speak for Singapore's rights in the Malaysian Rakyat. Now, that's something to be proud about, something to wave the flag for.
Goh Chok Tong is also entitled to the goodies, we are told, "Mr Lee and Mr Goh continue to make significant contributions to Singapore, especially internationally." We beg to differ, making friends with Gaddafi and calling Kim Jong-il names are not exactly noteworthy gestures for promoting goodwill and world peace. Both guys had supposedly chosen to step down from Government in May to give PM Lee and his team a "fresh, clean slate" to carry the country forward. From the reality in sight, it looks more like an "old, moldy sheet" that is dragging the country down with dead weights.
