LET’S NOT FORGET THAT WE HAD A PM WHOSE SURNAME WASN’T LEE

Written by Shane

Throughout the history of Singapore and even until today, our political scene has always been dominated by the Lee Family. In Goh Chok Tong’s new book, Tall Order: The Goh Chok Tong Story, our second-generation prime minister tries to find his own voice and steer out of the shadow of his predecessor, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

From Lee Kuan Yew’s praises and criticism of him to casual conversations, the book dives into something one wouldn’t really expect from a typical Singaporean political biography: read accounts of how Lee Kuan Yew suggested that he should visit a psychiatrist to loosen up and even radical ideas of a nudist beach at Sentosa.
