Gopalan: “My last post about Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew was a hoax.”
My last post in this blog, Saturday, March 6, 2010 “Singapore strongman 87 year old Lee Kuan Yew suffers massive heart attack“, was a hoax. But the hoax was deliberately written by me. It was a deliberate attempt to highlight how tenuous Singapore really is, with all power in the island vested in one man, and the dire consequences to the island of his parting. …
This is what I have been telling Singaporeans all along. I do not really know one way or the other whether Lee Kuan Yew has had any heart attacks because even if he did, as is the custom in Stalinist closed societies, you are not going to be told of it.
At the same time, I do not know if the 87 year old octogenarian had run the mile in under 3 minutes yesterday.
In fact I don’t know anything. And neither do you. And that my friends is the story of living in Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore.
