Ladies and Gentlemen,
Lee Kuan Yew wrote a book "From Third World to First" meaning Singapore. This is what Singapore is. Is it a first world country?
The Singapore constitution guarantees freedom of speech and expression. In fact none exist. Dr. Chee is presently undergoing a trial in court for doing just that. That is for allegedly making a speech. To speak you need a license. He did not have it.
The Constitution of Singapore claims there is rule of law. There is none. All judges are appointed at the pleasure of Lee Kuan Yew and removed if he is displeased. In order to please Lee Kuan Yew and to keep their jobs, they always punish Lee’s opponents. Regardless of any law.
All newspapers and news media is wholly owned and controlled by the Lee Kuan Yew government. Therefore they publish only politically correct news or rather propaganda. The head of the executive committee in the Straits Times, the largest newspaper is Miss Chua Mui Hoong. She is an intelligence of officer with Internal Security Department, the government intelligence agency in Singapore whose main job is to arrest and convict political opponents and detain them indefinitely without trial. As well as her job as intelligence officer, she doubles as an editor of the paper.
The Singapore government claims that their GDP is several millions or billions and that the per capita income is US$20,000 or more. This gives the impression that Singaporeans are rich. Nothing is further from the truth. Singapore has a few millionaires from abroad, who are parking their money there. Most of it is illegal money. Singapore is a money laundering center used by Burmese drug lords and Indonesian criminals who defrauded banks in Indonesia. These have placed their illegal millions in Singapore banks.
The money of these criminals inflates the GDP of the country as a whole. In fact about half of Singaporeans can barely survive and many are unable to pay even their utility bills. Many of these people are just above the poverty line or below. Since Singapore does not provide any reasonable welfare payments for the underprivileged, they are given a few hindered dollars a month and asked to fend for themselves. The government is not interested in these people. Lee Kuan Yew believes that it is their own fault that they have not succeeded in life.
As most Singaporeans live in high rise government built flats, it makes it convenient for suicides. All they have to do is to jump off their high rise apartments. By this method, suicide is guaranteed. Recently with the government having built the Mass Rapid Transport rail system, people have been jumping onto oncoming trains to kill themselves. At the latest figures, there are at least 2 suicides a day. Most of those who die this way come from the half of Singapore who lives in poverty or just above the poverty line. The government is not bothered by these suicides. They may even be glad these people have gone. Lee Kuan Yew only wants successful people. In his thinking, mediocre people have no right to live anyway. Hitler too thought that way. Hitler killed disabled people.
Singapore has CPF. It stands for Central Provident Fund. It is meant to give you retirement savings when you reach 55. Lee has now declared that it is no longer going to pay anything when you reach 55. Lee wants people to continue working until they die. He believes retirement is a bad thing. Retirement he says, kills people. He has stated he does not intend to retire. He expects others to follow his example. Yesterday, he said in a Straits Times interview that at his age of 84, he still cycles, swims and does rock climbing among other vigorous feats on a daily basis. Although he has not said that he intends to run the marathon in under 2 hours, he may very well be planning that! But looking at his picture he looked more a frail old man. Whether it was a case of dementia or other mental illness, it is hard to say. The report did not make clear whether he wanted Singaporeans to exercise like him.
There is no minimum wage law or anti discriminatory laws in Singapore. Any employer can discriminate against Malays and Indians in employment by a simple expedient. By requiring them to have knowledge of Chinese. There was one case where an Indian knew spoken Chinese. He was still refused the job when the employer then required a new qualification, knowledge of written Chinese! I have heard another case where even though the non Chinese knew both spoken and written Chinese he was still refused the job! He did not know the principles of Confucianism and Taoism by heart!
Older people even though fit and well are still refused jobs. They are told they are too old. There was one case where the man was 60 and very fit. He was still denied the job. He could not run the mile in under 4 minutes!
These older people in Singapore who are kicked out of their jobs do not have any retirement. The CPF is not given to them. In any case, the do not have any CPF funds anyway. The government makes house prices so expensive that they have used all their money in CPF to pay for the house. When they are old, they have no retirement, no savings and no job. So the older Singaporeans end up as toilet cleaners and food stall table cleaners. You can see them every where in Singapore. Their ages range from 65 to 95. Even if they can hardly stand, they must work. Otherwise they starve. According to Lee Kuan Yew, if they are suffering, it is their own fault for not becoming an offshore banker!
In Singapore you can hardly hear anyone talking politics. They are silent. Government informers are everywhere and are all ears. It has been known that simple people who have been discovered criticizing the government have suddenly descended into all sorts of problems. They suddenly lost their jobs and their promotions. Many of them have had no choice other than the only job available to such cases. Toilet cleaners. So when you see a younger man who is a toilet cleaner, you can probably guess why. He must have criticized the government and was found out.
In Singapore you cannot chew gum. If you did, it will be confiscated and you will be punished. I do not know whether the police will use the gum in your mouth as evidence. If so, how do they compel you to spit it out? And if you refused, can Singapore cop use force to pry open your mouth, stick their finger in it, to force it out! I do not know how they do it, in this first world country! I shudder to think.
Singapore claimed recently that it has become a more liberal country. And to prove it they have now allowed bar top dancing. It is like this. Girls or young women are first required to remove their upper garments. As for lower garments, they can keep them on, but it has to be flimsy. In other words, not too much clothing. Something like a bikini is preferred. They then are asked to stand on top of a bar and to dance. As to what kind of dance is not specified. I do not believe that ballet is one of the acceptable dances but other kinds are permissible. Dances like the samba, the gig, salsa or disco is fine I think. But I am not too sure. I think bars may hand a list of acceptable dances. I am not sure.
The dancing is accompanied by music. Men are encouraged to surround the bar and admire the women. Also perhaps their dancing proficiency. I am not sure if the men are allowed to touch the women but I understand that different establishments have different rules. Someone had asked what this bar top dancing had even remotely to do with the government's claim of liberalizing the country; but the question remains unanswered.
I understand that recently Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, who is a minister in Lee Kuan Yew's government, had discouraged this rather unusual trick of bar top dancing. He correctly pointed out the women may fall off the bar table and injure themselves, as well as others in the fall; the boyfriends of the women on the bar top may start fighting with each other and murder and mayhem may ensue; and all other manner of untold problems may come about. I understand that the women in Singapore, have decided to take the advice of the minister, like they always do in Singapore, and have stopped the practice altogether. I do not know whether Lee Kuan Yew will have any other equally unconventional means of liberalizing Singapore, but we will have to wait and see.
Many educated people are leaving Singapore for other countries. They no longer are able to live in this first world country anymore. In their place, Lee Kuan Yew brings in Chinese babies from the People's Republic of China accompanied by their mothers. Lee Kuan Yew, for reasons best known to him, has decided that only the mothers of these Chinese babies can come. Since both the child and mother have no benefit of English, the mother has no choice but to work in establishments such as massage parlors and Chinese eating houses. Very often because of the refusal to admit the father to Singapore, these People Republic of China children are either illegitimate or from broken homes. This is unavoidable, since no self respecting father would permit his child to be taken away from him. Surely.
In Singapore when the parties are identified, litigants already know the outcome of a lawsuit even before they step into court. JB Jeyaretnam has lost all the cases that Lee Kuan Yew has brought against him. So has Dr. Chee Soon Juan. The judges are required to find in favor of Lee Kuan Yew. Otherwise they will lose their jobs.
Children and students in Singapore classrooms do not speak up. They are afraid of their teachers. If they question too much, they will be labeled troublemakers. This will mean the end of their careers. Students too, like their teachers and parents always keep their mouths shut. They sincerely believe that talking is only silver. Silence is golden.
The Malays are now running a race to keep up their population numbers . They are having more babies. But no matter how many babies they have, Lee Kuan Yew brings in a hundred times more babies with their single mothers from Communist China. This is troubling the Malays and Indians but they are afraid to complain. They fear being arrested and locked up without trial by Miss Chua Mui Hoong the Intelligence Officer.
I wonder how Mr. Lee Kuan Yew has decided that it is a first world country. It is more like Alice in Wonderland!
