Ok, when the PM said he want an Open and Inclusive Singapore, that did not include sliming his family openly.
Remember this and you will not get sued, or get your circulation cut, or be £127,000 poorer.
"Our people should feel free to express diverse views, pursue unconventional ideas, or simply be different. We should have the confidence to engage in robust debate, so as understand our problems, conceive fresh solutions, and open up new spaces.
"We should recognise many paths of success, and many ways to be Singaporean. We must give people a second chance, for those who have tasted failure may be the wiser and stronger ones among us. Ours must be an open and inclusive Singapore."
Just make sure your diverse views and robust debate are approved views and debate, and you'll be fine.
The Economist magazine has published an apology and agreed to pay £127,000 in damages to Singapore founding father Lee Kuan Yew and his son, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
The apology, published in its latest issue, says allegations in a recent article were “false and completely without merit”.
The article appeared in the magazine last month and was titled “Temasek, First Singapore, Next the World”.
Temasek is the Singapore government’s investment arm, headed by the prime minister’s wife, Ho Ching.
The Economist said in its apology that the article was understood to imply that Ho’s appointment was based not on merit but on “corrupt, nepotist motives for the advancement of the Lee family’s interests”.
