"I'm astounded by the police preventing the legitimate movement of people. The manner in which they are implementing it would be classified as intimidation. There's a disproportionate reaction and it shows another side to Singapore,"
who saw the stand-off as he walked by on Saturday, decided to stay the entire night
Thank goodness the police has won and Singapore is saved from chaos and disorder.
If they were allowed to march from Hong Lim to the Parliament House, Singapore's security would have been badly compromised and our system would be endangered. I'm therefore thankful to all the policemen and ISD men who turned up for the event, they (ISD) have shown that they are as relevant today as they were 4 decades when they were formed.
I wanted to go this morning to tell those fellers at Hong Lim to go home and get a shower because its not good to go without one for 2 days, but I was afraid that one of the ISD guys might mistake me as a supporter so I gave it a miss. Despite my wide smile in support of the '4 Million Smiles Campaign', they might still think that I'm a opposition supporter in disguise.
It is important not to allow these 7 people to walk towards parliament, after 4 decades of PAP rule we simply cannot risk such actions that will undermine our major million $ rebranding campaign that will make Singapore look hip and vibrant. If these 7 people manage to get to near the Suntec Convention Center, they will be seen by delegates from all over the world at the entrance of the big cage surrounding Suntec, their impression of Singapore will be damaged. Some of you cynics might say that the PAP has already done irreparable damage by banning those accredited NGOs members and banning outdoor protests. .....those are honest mistakes we can live with. Imagine if those delegates seeing Singaporeans (CSJ & sister) protesting at Suntec while foreign protesters are disallowed, I think they will be even more outraged. We just cannot let the Chees get to Suntec. ...it will definitely damage our rebranding campaign....
