When I read this article in the Forum section, I almost fell off my chair laughing. I'm still laughing. The writer expects Martyn See to be treated the same way under the law as Media Corp? A film on Chee Soon Juan to be in the same category as a film on our elite leaders? How can this absurdity be possible?
Obviously the person has not read the Film Act that states:
"This Act shall not apply to any film sponsored by the Government."
"The Minister may, subject to such conditions as he thinks fit, exempt any person or class of persons or any film or class of films from all or any of the provisions of this Act."
As long as PAP Minister say can, the Media Corp film is alright.
I can see this Kelvin's guy concern that MediaCorp might have broken the Law inadvertently, but don't you think our very efficient police would have already done something if it has?
I don't know why some people are harping on the TV series about PAP ministers having broken the Film Act - it hasn't because the PAP minister has a final say on whether it violated the film act. See how ingenious the Film Act is? Our elite leadership has thought of every angle already, don't waste your time thinking too hard, just work hard on your shopping and travelling and enjoy your life.
Martyn See as I've said early is a dangerous person, that is why he needs to be investigated by the police. He is trying to introduce political ideas that has not been approved by our leaders and is providing an alternative view of Opposition member called Chee Soon Juan. Such an alternative view might lead to confusion and disorder among members of our society, that is why the film has to be banned. The PAP has already said that Chee is a gangster, a flawed person, defamer etc. so only films that portray him as such can be allowed. Thoughts of Singaporeans have to be properly harmonised with that of the leadership otherwise there will be chaos. Singaporeans should concentrated hard on their car and condo shopping...instead of wasting their time on such matters. The PAP always act for the good of the people of Singapore.
