Singapore Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew, the republic's first premier and father of Lee Hsien Loong, the current prime minister, told a Citibank conference in Hong Kong that Hong Kong should not make "unrealistic political demands" on Beijing, according to the South China Morning Post. In comments made after the meeting, Lee said the territory's recently resigned chief executive, Tung Chee Hwa, lacked the ruthlessness of a street fighter to be an effective leader and while allowing Acting CE Donald Tsang Yam-kuen was suitably younger, Lee said he wasn't sure Tsang "wanted to be a street fighter".
