Ex-Singapore Premier Lee Kuan Yew Not A Fan Of Casinos

Lee Kuan Yew in Tokyo, and he still doesn’t like casinos. Nikkei : Lee Kuan Yew, the former prime minister of Singapore, expressed reservations about having casinos in the city-state, while speaking at the annual Future of Asia conference here Thursday. Lee Kuan Yew expressed reservations about having casinos in the city-state. “I do not believe it is a good idea to expect people to get rich by luck. Especially in casinos,” Lee said. “Singaporeans have to pay S$100 to go in; for foreigners it’s free. Perhaps it should have been S$500,” he said. Lee said he was initially opposed to having casinos in his country, but that he accepted the idea after Lee Hsien Loong, his son and the current prime minister, decided to impose an entrance fee for Singaporeans.
