I can't believe my eyes when I saw pictures of our esteemed PM and his wife Ho Ching's being burnt by Thai protesters. PM Lee has nothing to do with Temasek Holding's purely commercial deal why drag him into it?! Besides there is no need to be so aggressive, they can just write complain letters to the forum page of the newspapers or send it to our embassy and go through the proper channels like what Singaporeans do when they are unhappy. Their rude actions are uncalled for!!!!
I feel very strongly about what the Thais have done and wanted to protest at the Thai embassy over the weekend, I think many other loyal Singaporeans have the same idea. However, since Singapore laws disallow protests of more than 4 people, I decided to give that a miss and go shopping at Audio House instead of risk breaking the rules. I might write a complain letter to the Thai Embassy to express my dissatisfaction with their protesting citizens.
The Thais should be showing appreciation to Temasek Holding for pumping money into their economy through the pocket of their PM Thaksin. Why can they see the merits of the deal? It is obvious their education system has failed them. Don't they know the benefits of harmony between govt and the people. The value of obedience and trust for their leader. The protests also reflects the failure of the media to explain the deal to the people in a way they will accept and understand. ...some members of the media chose to be critical of Thaksin.
We in Singapore are lucky, the govt will tell us what is good or bad for us and all we have to do is believe with the help of the media such as Straits Times. Thaksin has been telling the Thais in Bangkok that this deal is above-board, they just have to believe and move on with their lives instead of standing in the hot sun and burning pictures of our esteemed leaders. ....they can be at one of the many shopping malls in Bangkok.
