1. This is ultimately a conversation about “what is” vs “what should be”. πŸ™‚

  1. Wise response, PM πŸ‘ This journalist should first look at his own backyard before he talks about, let alone condescends, other countries. Talk is cheap. And this chap is just chattering away…

    1. Thank you for your comment! πŸ™‚
      Sometimes I wonder if the interviewer is being irritating on purpose…just to get PM Lee to trip up. I mean, PM Lee has to tread with caution for certain sensitive issues (such as gay rights and China’s relationship) and this interviewer can be seen as pushing it, man.

  2. It is one thing to resist hegemony but another to use the idea of “tradition” to disenfranchise certain people. That tradition is more often than not internalised laws and practices of the old west anyway.

  5. Well said Mr Prime Minister; we applaud you on your wise commentsπŸ€—πŸ€— Majullah Singapura!
