"Lee Hsien Loong and the art of making the worst possible move"

The word that got me thinking was “ransom”. If the precedent was set that by-elections, at least for single-member constituencies, should be called without delay, then a disgruntled PAP member might choose to resign his seat to force a popular vote, albeit in a localised area. Lee’s internal challengers might use this opening and appeal to voters for support, rather than work entirely within the party organisation. Not only would it give ambitious rivals within his own party a chance to overtake him in popularity stakes, it would also destroy the myth that Lee was in control. Given the way Lee has been traumatised by his election experiences, his self-confidence when it comes to polls is not exactly high. Such a prospect of an internal challenge to his leadership being forced into the open might blanche his complexion to a ghostly white.
