Ladies and Gentlemen,
The Straits Times, Singapore's state controlled newspaper printed in it's online edition the story "Why we need immigrants".
Goh Chock Tong, the Senior Minister, told an Indian gathering at Bradell Heights Community Club that unless Singapore continues to import increasing numbers of foreign immigrants, it will "go the way of the dinosaurs". To justify his argument, he gave figures of people over 65 increasing by 100,000 and people under 15 shrinking by 50,000. He says the reproduction figure has simply refused to increase which means more people die than born. He went on to say that people are needed to build the MRT, the glass towers and the services and there are insufficient Singaporeans.
In my view, this is perfect recipe for disaster, which by the way, has already begun.
For a highly educated and experienced million dollar minister to say this, we can only conclude that he is not being entirely honest.
If he were to ask himself why do Singaporeans leave the country en masse which is the major reason for the population decline, why do people not have children, why does 3 out of 4 young people interviewed want to emigrate if given the chance? In other words why do Singaporeans hate Singapore so much? Why?
I bet he knows the answer. And if he truly addresses those questions, Singaporeans would remain in the country and procreate. They would be happy. But there is one down side to it of course; Goh Chock Tong and his good friend Lee Kuan Yew would be kicked out and perhaps tried, convicted and imprisoned. Not wanting that of course, he comes up with this stop gap measure of bringing in more and more foreigners which is nothing more than temporary first aid. By the time it all eventually collapses, which will not be overnight, he would either be dead and gone or into exile. That is why he continues with this deliberate plan to keep increasing foreigners. It keeps him and his friends at the top safe for the moment. He is being deliberately dishonest in this.
We all know why native Singaporeans are beginning to hate their government and therefore, their country. For one, it is the ongoing day light robbery of the men in white (Lee Kuan Yew and the PAP). No single Singaporean can accept the fact of Lee Kuan Yew and his friends paying themselves millions while the majority of others have to eke out a living as best they can. In order to inflict the maximum pain on his people while he and his friends wallow in luxury, he makes sure of deliberately increasing taxes, utility bills, transportation costs, medical fees, and you name it. The people naturally ask what need is there to squeeze the last penny out of the poor while he and his friends continue to grab more than they could possibly spend?
While they live their unimaginable lives of luxury, the poor are being kicked out of their jobs because a foreigner has taken it; while they have no social security or unemployment assistance whatsoever. A destitute unemployed uneducated citizen is told that it is all his own fault and he should go and line up ever day at his PAP Member of Parliament’s office for a few crumbs of bread which he may or may not get. Now what about his children? They starve.
Then he deliberately discredited the very foundations of state, such as the judiciary and the civil service. He requires his judges to be beholden to him and to abuse the law; resulting in opposition politicians unjustly bankrupted and jailed on a daily basis while his own get preferential treatment. I had given an example of the corrupt judge Belinda Ang Saw Ean giving judgment for Lee Kuan Yew's son's company Fraser and Nave and Asia Pacific Breweries when they were sued by certain foreign banks. Please read my earlier blog on this case.
The people have no means of venting their grievances in this state controlled island. The newspapers are state controlled and will not print anything negative of the government. The judiciary is corrupt. The civil service is politicized which means only government cronies and supporters get benefits while others are disadvantaged. There is blatant and open racial discrimination. Malays and Indians are disadvantaged in jobs, housing and benefits, what little there is.
There are adverts in the state controlled press for job vacancies which disqualify Singaporeans from applying; jobs reserved for foreigners only.
The HDB Singapore’s government housing monopoly gives choice locations to the Chinese, while the Malays and Indians are required to disperse and live among them. This is especially difficult for the Malays and Indian Muslims as they do not eat pork which the Chinese relish.
The students are deliberately not taught the skills that are needed in Singapore. Goh Chock Tong rightfully says that foreigners are needed in construction. Why, because Singaporeans do not have these skills. There are no vocational schools and if there are, they deliberately do not teach these skills. There are insufficient mechanics, insufficient technicians and insufficient skilled people in every line of work. And if there are, they are not well trained. There is no certification process for vocational jobs. What little they know is what they picked up from experience. And there are insufficient lawyers because the law has been completely discredited.
Even a boy can tell Goh Chock Tong why there is this massive loss of people from Singapore. The reason is himself, and his boss Lee Kuan Yew. It is their very presence which causes masses to leave and not to have children.
You can solve this problem in one stroke. Stop abusing the law. Introduce the rule of law. Tell your judges to stop their corruption. Stop paying yourself millions. Build schools, real schools and educate the masses. Stop persecuting political opponents. Free the press. Allow free speech, expression and assembly. Give people some security in their lives; introduce a minimum wage and social security for the unemployed. Stop racial discrimination. Stop favoring foreigners at the expense of Singaporeans. Give jobs to Singaporeans first before foreigners. And last but not least, stop you arrogance. Do it and Singapore’s problems would be solved overnight.
Let me tell you what is going to happen with these increasing foreigners. The only ones who will sink roots are the illiterate Chinese speaking imports. Not a single educated foreigner will stay. They may come not knowing what Singapore really is. But when they know what it really is, an island under the grip of the Lee family with no rights whatsoever, they will go the way they come. And while that goes on, increasing Singaporeans will continue to leave.
At a point, foreigners and their offspring will equal native born Singaporeans. These people will have no loyalty and Singapore will turn into a revolving door, people coming and people leaving. And those leaving will continue to discredit Singapore in their native countries after knowing what it truly is. And among the Singaporeans leaving, some would turn out to be bloggers like the Singapore Dissident, continuing to expose the rot within.
It is not something that can survive. Dubai can be contrasted to Singapore. There, the royalty keep their power while the natives are very well taken care of. Unlike Singapore, no citizen of Dubai wants to leave his country. Surrounded by oil money, they have no worries on that score. Their people are contended and foreigners do the work. Dubai has the money to last this way. Singapore does not have that luxury.
Singapore is not Dubai and can never expect to be one. There is no oil money here. Singapore is not an emirate and we do not have an emir. So when Lee Kuan Yew behaves like a king, this antagonizes the people, resulting in hatred and contempt. Singapore unlike Dubai is supposed to have a free press, fundamental human rights, and a democracy. When these things are denied Singaporeans, they will resist and if not, they will leave and not have any children. Foreigners cannot solve the problem. In any case, no educated foreigner would want to sink roots here. The only ones are the coolies from China and India. And they cannot advance Singapore.
Don't say that I did not tell you. Your policies are doomed to failure. And I hope Singaporeans will have the courage to resist to save their island.
