Dr M and MM LKY: The Continuing Saga

Dr M and MM LKY: Alimama vs Sinaman
The Last Dance of a Racist Racialist Coward

A couple of weeks ago, it must have taken some daringness for Dr M to travel to Singapore to see and confirm for himself that MM Lee Kuan Yew has actually passed away and is really, really dead. Being a medical doctor, trained no less by Singapore’s best Medical School, he was quite convinced himself that LKY has indeed passed away. Sadly, Dr M sighed with great relief before his narcissistic personality overwhelmed him and he decided to insult the better man by calling LKY “kiasu” during their years of dealings and negotiations.  

It was just amazing! Finally, Alimama could muster the courage to insult Sinaman in his face as the latter was laid to peaceful rest by his beloved Singaporeans.  Alimama had to be certain that Sinaman would not suddenly jump up to sue him, Dr M, for defamation or slander.  But just to be on the safe side, the coward Alimama only uttered his insults after Sinaman had been cremated.  And then, he only did so in the safe Malaysian town of Cyberjaya, nearly 300km from Sinaman’s Singapore.  Serious outstanding courage indeed, Dr M.

As Alimama boarded his plane to return home, he secretly hoped that his Malaysian people, whom he ruled as their 4th Prime Minister from 1981-2003, would shower him with the same love and fame as Sinaman had received from Singaporeans in his life as in death.  It’s really a shame, Dr M, that the people you had so despised, deceived and divided by political and social racism over the years have left you so useless, empty and lonely. Dr M had repeatedly scolded, coaxed and prodded Malaysian Malays. They saw the truth in your eyes after you left office and sniped at all your successors from Tun Abdullah Badawi to the present Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak from the lofty Petronas Twin-Towers.

MM LKY said: “Dr M undermines his successors”.  MM Lee sees his role after stepping down as Prime Minister to be an advisor to the next generation of leaders. Taking up his new role seriously, he deferred to his successors, PM Goh CT and PM Lee HL, in all protocols, matters and manners.

It was already 1981 when Dr M became Malaysia’s Prime Minister, and where he remained the longest serving for 22 years.  It is therefore disingenuous when he said that MM LKY was still "coloured with bitterness" over Singapore's expulsion from Malaysia in 1965, some 17 years earlier. By 1975, Singapore had transformed into a thriving global metropolis when compared with still struggling 3rd world Malaysia, who was then obsessed with implementing her racist pro-bumiputra social and economic policies.  MM LKY and Singapore have absolutely no regrets, let alone lingering bitterness, over separation from Malaysia, who continues to languish in the errors of her policies and drowning in the cesspits of prevalent corruptions that they spawned. 

To Dr M, the Malay race is inherently “backward” genetically.  In his controversial 1970 book “The Malay Dilemma”, he attributed the Malay’s “natural racial inferiority” to poor eugenics from their traditional habit of marrying first cousins which, according to him as a trained medical doctor, resulted in gene regression and resulted in the relatively greater social progress by the better intelligent Chinese.  Of course, Mahathir himself is not pure Malay racially but hailed from an Indian-Muslim (ie Ali-mama) ancestry that thereby enable him to claim and prosper from the privileged bumiputra status.  He therefore sees himself, a non-Malay, as the “Champion for the Malays”, and their political support of him for over 20 years further reinforced his belief in his “inferior” race supporters.

Dr M further added in characteristic hypocrisy, that "they (Singapore) don't have to build many roads. They don't have racial problems. We have racial problems. And they can forget about the minorities and do what they like, We can't do that here, we have to think about minorities, think about the rights of people...".  Are you seriously, Dr M? Do you really believe you own B**s**t?   

Malaysia today can only be understood in term of a class structure of social inequality created by her mostly Malay power elites who were nurtured and overseered by Dr M. Political racism in Malaysia nurtures a large number of politically connected Bumiputra (Native and Muslim) rent seekers promoting a business system riddled with kickbacks and corruption. Economic and commercial policies favour largely the already rich with lucrative government contracts awarded according to cronyism and nepotism facilitated by widespread systematic corrupt practices. Government and local authority contracts, permits and licenses are given to people who are linked to the major ruling political parties and other powerful Bumiputra politicians who in turn rent out their licenses and permits for a fee or a percentage of profit, thus depriving others of these lucrative contracts.  They take a huge cut of any privileged contracts before re-awarding the crumbs to the mostly Malay contractors since 80% of registered contractors are Bumiputra. The mostly Malay sub-contractors therefore earned little compared with the power elites.

Malaysia’s problems are therefore mostly self-created and based on the flawed “inferior race theory”, and which was further expounded in the discredited thesis of Alimama himself.  The achievements of Singapore Malays confirm the lies and baselessness of the “inferior race theory” and affirm Singapore’s multiracial multicultural policies “regardless of race, language or religion” as the cornerstone of our development success.    

In fact, Dr M’s duplicity was clearly exposed to MM LKY and Singapore civil servants in the 2001-2002 Water Talks regarding the prices of raw water supply from Malaysia in the Water Agreements scheduled to expire in 2011 and 2061 respectively.  The raw water price was 3 M’sian sen per 1,000 gallon under the Agreements.

It was actually agreed between Dr M and MM LKY that the indicative raw water price would be 45 sen in return for agreement of water supply beyond the 2011 and 2061 expiry dates of the Agreements. The price was however shifted by Dr M repeatedly; first to 60 sen, to be backdated to 1986 and 1987 respectively, and also RM3 (3 Ringgits!) from 2007 to 2011; and from 2011 to adjust by inflation.  In September 2002, Dr M’s staff returned to ask for RM6.25 per 1000 gallon, a jump of 200-fold from RM3!  

By that time, Singapore has already spent more than S$1 billion on various water projects in the Johor State of Malaysia; and has been paying for the infrastructure such as dams, pipelines, plants and equipment, in addition to operational and maintenance costs.  These added up to millions of dollars annually. Johor benefits too as the waterworks also supply water to Johor residents.

In July 2002, Singapore announced the success of our Newater Project, and informed Malaysia that the Water Agreement expiring 2011 would not be renewed.  In December 2002, both country suspended discussions on the other Water Agreement expiring 2061. We are now self-sufficient in portable water supply.

Singaporeans can now understand why MM LKY had almost no direct dealings with Dr M from 2003 onwards.  We already know only too well that MM LKY does not suffer fools and idiots easily.  However, what MM LKY cannot tolerate is a blatantly dishonest, perfidious and untrustworthy person who cannot, will not and choose not to negotiate in good faith and not to adhere to his word.    

Singaporeans, especially the younger ones, can now better understand why Dr M was cautiously nervous, even apprehensive, when he arrived in Singapore 2 weeks ago. Understandably, Alimama clearly dread facing the live Sinaman in any straight and honest shootouts! 

As his plane was taking off from Singapore Changi Airport, Alimama looked back as if just to ascertain that neither Sinaman nor his pervasive indomitable air force was trailing behind. Quite fortunately, no. Running won't get you far, Dr M. You just cannot shake off the unmistakable and indisputable legacies of MM LKY in Singapore and the world. The spectre of Sinaman as the better and more honourable man will continue to haunt you, Alimama, forever.  Run, if you must; know that hiding is impossible, and escape is not an option, man.  Soon, everyone will die naturally.  With Sinaman now in the heavens; where do you think you could hide in eternity from him forever, Dr M?  Actually, there is that other place …..
Note: Dr Mahathir did not come to MM LKY's wake or funeral.  This is partly fictitious satire.

  1. "Sina" means "blessed" in the Latin language; same meaning in American.
    A "sina-man" has a deep inner desire to use their abilities in leadership, and to have personal independence. He would rather focus on large, important issues, and often delegate the details.
