A 16-year old Singaporean takes on the might of Lee Kuan Yew

I hope this will be an inspiration to our 16-year old Malaysians to take up our national cause to make our country a better place to live in.

Watch Ken on video inside
WITH VIDEO In a sign that young Singaporeans are getting increasingly disillusioned about Singapore’s repressive political system, a 16 year old Singaporean by the name of Kenneth Lin marked a first in the history of Singapore by making a public speech criticizing PAP strongman Lee Kuan Yew.

Kenneth set up an online petition a few months ago asking Lee to apologize to Singaporeans for his unflattering remarks about them made during an interview with National Geographic magazine. Lee had said that it is a “good thing” for Singapore to welcome more Chinese immigrants as they are more “hard-striving” and “hard-driving” than locals.

As one of the speakers during the SDP pre-election rally last Saturday, Kenneth described how he became “enlightened” after watching a video about Lee by Seelan Palay – “One Nation under Lee”. He urged young Singaporeans to step forward and make a difference to their nation by becoming more involved in politics.

Lee has indicated lately that he will be participating in the coming general election if he is still fit to do so. Kenneth may like to consider setting up another petition imploring him not to do so.

I wonder how has LKY reacted to this video. Arrest Kenneth and -
1. Detain him under the ISA? or
2. Charge him in court and find him S$30m? or
3. Invite Kennth for a cup of tea?
