Why not. It's been Brother & Sister against PM Brother ever since the old man died.

I wish LSY had actually run against LSL.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Ya too bad LSY not running.

Listening to his interviews, doesnt look like he is a strong enough speaker against his brother.

He is a different personality but quite iron willed inside (otherwise he would have rolled over and we would have a temple to LKY on Oxley Road already).

LHY's core argument - his brother is betraying his father's values by introducing ever more repressive measures and wanting to create a political dynasty, etc - doesn't really make sense.

LHL is very much following in his father's footsteps. If anything, he's less repressive. LKY imprisoned people for decades without trial or evidence, exiled people, bankrupted rival politicians, banned magazines after criticising him, hugely enriched himself (ie, removed anti-corruption laws so HDB conveyancing transactions could go through his wife's law firm), and disliked the poor (dodgy eugenics beliefs) - and, indeed, actually started a political dynasty.

In short, LHY can't simultaneously criticise his brother on these terms while still idolising his father. It also makes PSP a rather confusing party. What do they actually stand for? They didn't deserve to win any seats.
