Please, S’pore not 50 years old

B-Singapore-River

Singapore, already a trading hub before LKY was ever born.

“Please, please, Singapore is not 50 years old this year. We were born when Raffles founded us in 1819, that after Sang Nila Utama discovered the island in the 13th Century and called it Singapura. Do your maths.

We are 50 years independent, yes, not 50 years old. We are definitely older than Lee Kuan Yew, for God’s sake.”
