Couldn’t stop laughing when I read the following
George Yeo turned down an offer he couldn’t refuse from Lee Kuan Yew
June 6, 2015
6 quotes that reveal that George Yeo is a badass at heart.
Double confirms my perception that the well-funded mothership.sg is really nothing more than pary of the PAP’s spin machine juz like ST, MediaCorp or Fabrications about the PAP*.
I mean only a PAP
dog, (sorry, my dogs growled) hackette would say turning down an offer made by Harry shows that BG Yeo’s a “badass”.
Seriously if you go thru the list, it shows more how straight laced is this lady writer. Or how hard she is straining to make BG Yeo look like a “badass” i.e. look normal.
On BG Yeo’s spurning LKY’s offer, two tots:
— How come he can offer BG Yeo a job in Temasek when he has no formal authority in or over Temasek? Double confirms my view that he was the Big Boss, bigger than PM or the cabinet.
— Actually if he is as dedicated to serving S’pore as he claims he is, he’d have taken up LKY’s offer of a job at GIC or Temasek. A former Foreign Affairs minister is really useful in a SWF. Can open doors, smooth ruffle feathers etc.
*There is a story making the rounds that BG Yeo pitched the idea of mothership to one Philip Yeo (the now retired civil servant with whom Harry daughter had a bone to pick). Philip Yeo wrote a cheque for $1m. Other people’s money, despite both of them being wealthy. Most probably taxpayers’ money.
