    Singapore's Lee fighting nerve disease: daughter



    Singapore's founding leader Lee Kuan Yew is fighting a neurological disease that is making it difficult for him to walk steadily, his daughter revealed.

    Lee, who turned 88 in September, suffers from sensory peripheral neuropathy, his physician daughter Lee Wei Ling, director of the National Neuroscience Institute of Singapore, wrote in her weekly Sunday Times newspaper column.

    "In my father's case, sensory peripheral neuropathy has caused the conduction of sensation from his legs to his spinal cord to be impaired. This makes his walking unsteady, as many Singaporeans have already noticed," she wrote.

    The column, which deals with a wide range of issues, is closely followed for glimpses into the private life of Singapore's most influential family.


    Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is the columnist's elder brother.

    Lee Kuan Yew retired from the cabinet after general elections in May but continues to travel overseas and remains a member of parliament, a post he has held since 1955. He served as prime minister from 1959 to 1990.

    "His day-to-day condition now fluctuates. On some days he is fairly steady and on other days his balance is poor. The problem is limited to the sensory nerves outside his central nervous system," his daughter wrote.

    "His brain and muscles are working normally. But being deprived of sensation from his legs means he finds it a challenge to balance. Thus his unsteady walk," she said.

    The patriarch, however, is determined to fight the disease and now practises walking on a treadmill at home three times a day without fail.

    "I have no doubt my father will fight this disease for as long as he thinks he can contribute to Singapore," his daughter said.

    "I think with medication and simple precaution, he can continue to be of service to his country and the world."

    That is why it is best he is infirm and in a wheelchair. Traveling around the world dispensing "advice" left, right and centre only gives us bad publicity.

    Yah, our neighbours are pre-occupied with their own problems i.e. floods, recession, revolutions,...

    LKY is "our" problem Looks like he's finally been silenced by old age.

    Surprising piece of good news... If thats indeed the case, then Old sick Harry should just stay at home to recuperate instead of exerting himself unneccessarily taking long flights from one end of the world to another end to impart his pearly wisdoms... Long haul flights are not good man for a sick frail old chap like him... Tax payers money will also be saved if he just stay at home..

    Its The Beginning Of The End For Harry Old Boy...

    I believe in Singapore there are many normal (no poor) people who suffer the same problem but then we're too poor to call this problem "sensory peripheral neuropathy" maybe we just call it hong-sip or fong-sup. Fuck the old man, may he burn in eternity for stealing our money.

    God has answers our prayer to get rid of him. Next step is to get rid of LHL and GCT from parliment and dispersed PAP like what they did to Hillview Ave voters after winning back the election from Oppo Ling How Dong.

    Not to mention those he brankrupted, forced to flee, deprived their livelihood, incarcerate people for decades just because they don't share his views, break up families, and for a time wanted to play social engineer by forcing people not to give birth, ...etc... Farker milked a country called Sinkeepoo for all it is worth, and enriched himself and his family and cronies. Strangely, there are some who can idolise him and call him the father of Sinkeepoo.

    Since he is sick etc, he should quit and move on. Why is he still waiting tax payers money on his medical treatments? Since he is soo rich he should pay for it himself.

    Paranoid delusions of grandeur. And that is the disease that actually inflicts him.

    Everytime a friend or any Singaporean I come across who come seek medical service in Thailand I curse 2 morherfuckers, LKY and KBW. After what we had put into for the country this is what we get in return. I don't mind if our country is poor but we are one of the richest countries in this fucking world!
