Lee Hsien Loong gaffes

on Singapore being the best place for poor in the whole world [Source] 27 Jan 2012:
“So if you are poor in Singapore, it’s no fun, but I think you are less badly poor than if you were nearly anywhere else in the world.”



on the night before Polling Day [Source] 3 May 2011:
“And if we didn’t quite get it right, I’m sorry, but we will try and do better the next time.” 



on Singapore weather 28 Sep 2008:
“All our people put up chillies and onions to prevent the rain from falling”



on his critic Mr Brown [Source] 21 Aug 2006:
“You put out a funny podcast, you talk about bar chor mee. I will say mee siam mai hum.”



on having too many Oppositions in Parliament [Source] 3 May 2006:
“Right now we have Low Thia Khiang, Chiam See Tong, Steve Chia. We can deal with them. Suppose you had 10, 15, 20 opposition members in Parliament. Their job is to make life difficult for me, so that I screw up and they can come in and sit where I am. Instead of spending my time thinking what is the right policy for Singapore, I’m going to spend all my time thinking what’s the right way to fix them, to buy my supporters votes, how can I solve this week’s problem and forget about next year’s challenges?”



on the Opposition leader Dr Chee Soon Juan [Source] 2006:

“The man and his party are not credible – a liar, he’s a cheat, he’s deceitful, he’s confrontational, it’s a destructive form of politics” 



on the Internet Security Act [Source] 3 Feb 1991:

“Singapore will seriously consider abolishing the Internal Security Act if Malaysia were to do so”
