A death in Singapore

One of the most prominent of Singaporean opposition politicians, JB Jeyaretnam, has died there from heart failure at the age of 82. His interaction with the People’s Action Party and its leader for most of its history, MM Lee Kwan Yew, makes interesting reading. He was about to stand again for Parliament, after having been the first opposition party member to have been elected to Parliament after Singapore’s independence from Britain. Rest in Peace, JBJ.
