Is this the reason why Harry cried

The real reason

When Dr Goh Keng Swee passed away on 14 May 2010, MM Lee delivered the eulogy. There was an interesting statement that he made:

We shared a common view that we could run Singapore and Malaya better than the British colonial officials. We became close friends. Together with Kenny ByrneToh Chin Chye and S Rajaratnam, we planned to build up a mass movement, to form a political party, win elections and take over from the colonialists.

Full eulogy here.

It’s obvious that Harry wanted to be more than just a minister in Malaya. He wanted to take over the colonialist and be the PM of Malaya. Did he forgot that there were native rulers before the colonials?

The speculation was later confirmed by Mahatir:

“Lee saw Malaysia as his chance to dominate a substantial nation and become its prime minister,” Mahathir said in his 809-page “A Doctor In The House: The Memoirs of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad”…

When Singapore was separated, Harry cried. Could this be the real reason: There’s no chance that he could be the PM of Malaya.
