Very troubled individuals
In short. Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang have problems with the government (i.e PM Lee) going against their fathers wish to demolish the house at 38 Oxley road. Its basically a family feud magnified a hundred fold.
They then proceed to air their dirty laundry
1 – They called PM Lee selfish and accused PM Lee of abusing his power as PM to deliberately prevent the house from being demolished
2 – PM Lee wants his son, Li Hongyi to succeed him in politics, so PM Lee is deliberately screwing his brother and sister up.
Lee Wei Ling and Lee Hsien Yang
Both of them do not represent anyone but themselves. They do not talk on behalf of Singaporeans or the establishment.
As the son and daughter of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, they are dignitaries (of sorts) and knew their words carry weight.
What could possibly be their motive for publishing something like this 2am in the morning, literally under the cover of darkness, when PM Lee is not even in Singapore?
We dug up what PM Lee said previously about his son becoming a politician
In 2014, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong was interviewed by prolific Chinese media television host Yang Lan , ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit in Beijing and talked his family. (Link)
Are they trying to get Singaporeans on their side for their vested interest? – Is their interest really about getting the house demolished?
Li Shengwu (eldest son of Lee Hsien Yang ) came to the defence of his father.
Which gets us really curious . . .
Who do you think has a vested interest?

Who do you think has the political ambitions?

This is a most disturbing development. PM has been smeared and tainted by his own siblings.
This is not the first time Lee Wei Ling has come forth accusing his brother of being selfish.
She has been needling her brother every chance she got since their father’s death. Together with Lee Hsien Yang, they have been airing their dirty laundry and harping on the same points ever since.
“The idea that I should wish to establish a dynasty makes even less sense. Meritocracy is a fundamental value of our society, and neither I, the PAP, nor the Singapore public would tolerate any such attempt.”
What has happened to Lee Kuan Yew values indeed?
