Lee Hsien Yang’s son recently made news for his take on the Lee family saga currently gripping Singapore.

In it, he backed up his dad’s assertions against PM Lee.

One of the assertions made by both Lee Wei Ling, and Lee Hsien Yang was that Lee Hsien Loong was moulding his son to enter politics.

“His popularity is inextricably linked to Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy. His political power is drawn from his being Lee Kuan Yew’s son. We have observed that Hsien Loong and Ho Ching want to milk Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy for their own political purposes. We also believe, based on our interactions, that they harbour political ambitions for their son, Li Hongyi.”

Well, the man himself has answered the call for clarity.

Here’s what he had to say.

“For what it is worth, I really have no interest in politics”

The saga continues.
