Dictator Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong tries to impress Singaporeans by claiming that he is going to solve an unsolvable Maths problem in his two-week holidays. The mountain pile of Singapore problems were handed over to his successor Heng Swee Keat, while Lee Hsien Loong solves the Collatz Conjecture, also known (according to the corrupted politician himself) as the 3n+1 problem.
Like the Pyongyang Times, Singapore state media Straits Times published a propaganda article featuring the shameless minister and making his Facebook post a national headline news:
“It’s something all of us can relate to: some challenges might stump us, but with persistence and by keeping an open mind, we might take a step or two closer to a solution.”
Lee Hsien Loong may hold a first-class honours degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University, but the award was likely given because he is the son of Lee Kuan Yew. Cronyism and corruption was rampant in the 1970s, a time when the world was still facing ideology conflicts. During Independence, the Lee Kuan Yew regime in Singapore was installed by its former colonial master Britain to ensure long-term English interests.
Lee Hsien Loong has never publicly displayed his supposedly “genius-level” mathematic abilities, and he was deployed as a military general right after graduation.
Unfortunately for the Singapore dictator, he is not as well-received as like his father Lee Kuan Yew. Lee Hsien Loong turned out to be a corrupted politician who draws the world’s highest political salaries.
The Lee Hsien Loong’s administration also fare incompetently at governance, wrecking livelihoods of citizens. In his 15-year reign so far, the quality of living in Singapore has been on the decline and the country became the world’s most expensive.
