SINGAPORE - Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong, in a Facebook post on Wednesday, wrote about what he thought was the most memorable speech the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew made in Parliament - a four-hour long speech.
He wrote: "Mr Lee Kuan Yew's body is now lying-in-state in Parliament House. I recall vividly his many speeches in Parliament.
"The most awesome was the one he made in February 1977 at the old Parliament House. I had just been elected an MP. He was speaking on the debate on the President's Address. He spoke for nearly 4 hours, from 3.45 pm to 7.30 pm."
In his post, Mr Goh said he "sat spell-bound in the back row", and noted that he and others rushed to the washroom after his long speech was over as his bladder "was about to burst".
