IMF/World Bank delegates get the BEST!!!

The numbers are staggering - 500 brand new BMW 7-series, 16000 delegates, 30 000 kg of ingredients for food.....and zero outdoor protests. Yes, the delegates should get to enjoy the same kind of security that Singaporeans have been enjoying for the past 4 decades. They will enjoy this unique feeling of safety when the see the big cage the Singapore has built to keep troublemakers out.















These IMF delegates will feel safer in Singapore than in any other IMF meetings in the past because Singapore is the only organiser ever to ban outdoor protests and we even blacklisted 28 "threats to security". We should not let the small matter that these 28 people receive accreditation from IMF stop us from banning them. It is for the IMF's own good that we take care of their safety. I wonder why Singapore govt have to keep explaining to these IMF officials that all this is for their own good.......unlike Singaporeans who understand instantly when the PAP does things in their interest, they have to keep explaining to these IMF officials that its for their own good...its for their own good...

Our DPM Wong Kan Seng has also explained that all these IMF delegates have to be protected from terrorism. I thought they protest to eliminate 3rd World debt, farmers' welfare etc......somehow they are linked to terrorists and have to be barred....how scary.

Singaporeans are so lucky to live in a safe country. I worry for my safety everytime I have to leave this country. IMF delegates are so lucky to get to sample this unique security that Singaporeans enjoy. They can conduct their meetings in peace and quiet without being detracted by the incoherent voices of angry protesters.

Imagine all the things that could get accomplished if all big meetings were held in Singapore. No protests, no uneduated people screaming out what they think is morally correct and right, but only big businesses getting things done the educated way by following the Golden Rules of life. "they that has the gold, makes the rules and the name of the game is to make more gold".

Though, I really thought it was amusing how your pictures have the first one with the "KEEP AWAY" sign behind the fence and then in the next one it has the "FOUR MILLION SMILES WELCOMES YOU" behind the fence. Kind of sending out mixed signals here, arent you?

They are trying to build the Singapore version of the Forbidden City where only heavenly beings are allowed.

Inside the city, everyone is all smiles and happiness and lowly peasants are told to keep away.

Wonder if the heavenly beings will venture out to Geylang and Newton for some food and fun?

Or they have special NS men providing such special services within the city?

Last I heard, once you get in, hard to find taxi to get out!

Maybe military and police cars are useful in ferrying the gals and food to them.

Why do I have a feeling that Singapore is behaving like a giant pimp city?

Honestly, not very proud to be Singaporean...

As long as they are enclosed in an area with good shopping and restaurants, I think they should complain. Its for a few days only.

Singaporeans have shown they can live in an enclosure for 4 decades before they become useless for the PAP and need to be replaced by Foreigners.

Looks like the IMF are going to have to go through hell, Hell In A Cell!

I wonder what they're going to do with those fences and gates after the meeting? Seriously, those things look freshly custom-made and run for kms on end. What a waste of money; I mean is it really necessary? Maybe the zoo has a use for it...

RESPONSE TO 'Anonymous 4:49 PM'

You are so right, so many things can now be solved without the distraction of all those pesky protestors disrupting the IMF. All big conventions should be held in Singapore to take advantage of all the security.

Though, makes me wonder how exactly the United Nations could possibly hold a meeting speaking out about human rights and freedoms with the whole population of Singapore gagged with duct tape and held at gun point by the police and gov't. That would be a mixed signal, would it not?
