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.
