Ladies and Gentlemen,
As you know, Singapore strongman Lee Kuan Yew mocks the Singapore Constitution or anything else he wants. After all he owns Singapore. That is, as long as he believes it and his Singaporeans whom he has referred to in the past as his "digits" also believe it.
And one of the many demands of the Constitution that he ignores is the Equality Clause. In blatant violation of the Constitution, in his determination to deliberately keep the Chinese in the majority, he imports even larger numbers of them from Communist China for settlement, most of whom know have no English at all, to prop up the numbers.
But the problem is that he needs English educated Chinese as well, to fill the English speaking government and business sectors of the island.
Up till now, this source was mainly Malaysian Chinese who were English educated. But the problem is, this source is dwindling as well and will soon dry out. Greater numbers of Malaysian English educated Chinese are moving to Australia and Canada rather than to the increasingly authoritarian Singapore island.
And what is worse, with the general bad reputation of that island, with no fundamental human rights to speak of or the rule of law, the local educated Singapore Chinese themselves are refusing to join the government, the professions or the civil service. In fact increasing numbers of locals of all races are leaving Singapore for settlement abroad.
An example of this is seen in the Singapore Legal Profession where in an island city of Singapore with nearly 5 million people, in spite of all sorts of incentives, there are only about 3,000 lawyers in the island!
A recent report in the state controlled Singapore newspaper Straits Times stated that more and more people are resorting to arbitration rather than litigate their disputes. I guess, with the knowledge that the judges are corrupt and beholden to the Lee Kuan Yew family, they are not going to get justice at all.
As if all these problems were not enough, there are not enough children being born in the island and suicides and judicial hangings even for petty crimes are reducing the population even further, which is replaced by Chinese Mandarin speaking immigrants from the rural parts of China.
And the quality of the immigrants themselves is poor. The only ones who are prepare to come to Singapore are those who have been refused admission anywhere else!
But of course, Singapore's newspapers continues to dish out the good news daily in generous portions! What else can you expect from a state controlled press?
