Support ... Friends place hands from their reach out campaign in front of the State Library in Melbourne / David Crosling
I sure won't like be a Singaporean in Melbourne these few days. I guess those Singapore students in Monash, RMIT & Melbourne U will be keeping a low profile. According to Straits Times & other Singaporean newspapers, these Australians are emotional people who are not seeing the totally rational argument of the Singapore govt. The logic is simple, the Singapore law states that people trafficking heroin will be executed, Nguyen trafficked heroin therefore Singapore must hang him no matter what. According to our esteemed minister Wong Kan Seng, Singapore laws have to be obeyed 'no matter what'.
Why are Australians spending so much effort trying to rescue an ordinary (non-elite) member of their society? If a Singaporean gets executed, nobody can be bothered - let me asked you how many of you have taken time off to protest to save the life of someone about to be executed. First of all, it is futile - the Singapore govt can never be swayed, secondly protests in Singapore require approval of the police will never be granted, third there are more important things to do like shopping and karaoke. Look at what the friends of Nguyen (see picture above) did to try to save his life outside Melbourne State Library - in Singapore they would have been arrested by the police.
Singapore will hang Nguyen for the good of Australians since the drugs he was trafficking is intended for Australia. They should be showering Singapore with thank you cards instead of protests for saving them from the drug menace.
What is wrong with these Australians anyway? ....and all the Singaporeans that emigrate there, don't these Singaporeans realise that migrating to a country without the death penalty will ultimately endanger their families?....
