I suggest people who want to debate about this further can also do it with MM Lee because he said essentially the same thing as Goh Meng Seng:
“We’ve grown in the last five years by just importing labour. Now, the people feel uncomfortable, there are too many foreigners. Trains are overcrowded with foreigners, buses too, property prices have gone up because foreigners with permanent residence are buying into the market. ”

I'm glad MM Lee suddenly turned around and agree with what netizens have been saying all along about housing and transport. The first step to fixing problems is to admit they exist and stop denying. Netizens were not in disagreement with the govt for the sake of opposing it - they disagreed because they were felt strongly that they were right. I'm happy MM Lee sees our side - however, some may suspect that elections which have to be held this year or next has something to do with this.
