I do not want to arrest and imprison the Communists during the Hock Lee Bus Riots.
David Marshall could not protect us...
I asked more powers from my government, the Governor refused. I felt that my government was not given enough powers in fiance, external affairs, law, external defence and internal security as these where under british hands..
David Marshall and a group of men went to London to negotiate for internal self-government.
I will resign from my position if the talks fail.
I insisted that Singapore should have a say in matters of defence and external affairs.

The talk failed... I have to step down as a Chief Minster as what I promised.
