ANU to honour Lee Kuan Yew

By johnboy - 22 March 2007 41

The Canberra Times is up in arms (on behalf of concerned academics of course) over ANU’s decision to give Singapore’s former PM Lee Kuan Yew an honorary doctorate.

While I wouldn’t describe Lee Kuan Yew’s regime as ideal, I’ve also noticed that the vast majority of Singaporeans I’ve met regard him with a great deal of affection and not as a monster.

Is there any former leader they would approve of other than Nelson Mandela? (or maybe Stalin?)

UPDATED: The ABC has managed to get Michael McKinley to stand up and be counted in opposition to the award.

What’s Your opinion?
