Lee Kuan Yew visits an exhibition largely about himself.  ST:

Former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew paid a visit on Wednesday to The Battle For Merger exhibition at the National Library, which showcases 12 radio talks he gave in 1961 to convince Singaporeans of the need for merger with Malaya.

During his visit, Mr Lee praised the team who had put up the exhibition for their “thorough research” and for “presenting this key period for today’s audience”, said Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean.

  1. Dear Lee Kuan Yew goes to visit a history event that is close to his heart. When our Court changed it name to State Court, I have the feeling that a re-merger is possible.

    Why did the exhibitions comes at this time when troubles are in the air for his sick son. It does not look like an coincidence, it is planned with a theme ideal of Merger again?

    I hope I AM wrong, but if it is right, it maybe it is a good idea after all. We can move part of our over crowded city to JB. With the MRT planned extension, the idea looks more likely.

    We also have a 2 days celebration during the Malaysia Day whereas National Day is only ONE day.

    It is good to have this exhibition to remind us and educate the younger generation of certain important phase in our nation building. Rather than focusing our energy on celebrity gossips and the likes.

    We should also remember and appreciate the late Mr. Broadcastor, Vernon for his tireless contribution.
