"Singapore is a fair open society we are open to all views; both praise and criticism. As long as they come to praise the PAP and critcise the opposition, the govt is all right with it" - Lucky Tan.
Who do these Europeans think we are? They think they can just walk into Singapore Inc and talk freely like they are going to do in Indonesia....come on get real! This is Singapore okay not some country like Denmark that is run by a mediocre govt without a decent budget for a good security apparatus. We employ enough people on properly benchmarked salaries in our security dept to monitor both locals and foreigners who intend to undermine our heavily financed re-branding campaign. I guess after George Soros said we are not an open society we have to be really careful with some of these foreigners who do not have the benefit of reading Straits Times to understand what goes on in Singapore.
Thank goodness our govt is on its toes to prevent these European MPs from poisioning the minds of Singaporeans. I wonder what they would say if they had been allowed to speak up ....must be something hideous like "PAP is not the best govt in the world". ...oh..so these Europeans they are so envious of our top 1st world system. Singaporeans are so lucky to have a govt so concerned about how they think and works diligently protect them from harmful external influence. Such a govt certainly deserve its million$ paycheck.
These liberal democrats from Europe endangers the advanced system we have in Singapore. Liberal democratic systems will result in emergence of unselected volunteers who are not groomed and will offer to be ministers for less than a million dollars. How can we ever trust ministers who are not paid $2M a year?
