Ladies and Gentlemen,
Singapore state controlled newspaper the Straits Times online edition of July 17, 2010 has the story "Hit by dawn downpour". Once again heavy rain causes massive flooding throughout Singapore. This is the third time this month this has happened. And what is alarming is the fact that each time it floods, the flood waters not only get deeper but the flooded land areas consistently becomes larger and larger.
What this means is simply this. You are going to get massive flooding almost every other day and with time passing the flooding becomes more intense and worse with more and more areas of the already small overcrowded island ending up with even less living space.
As it is, Singaporeans for lack of space are having to live in high rise apartments, as if they were cabinets and the Singaporeans ensconced in their respective drawers. As it is, the entire plush shopping district of Orchard Road is already becoming not only unsuitable for business but also habitation. I would expect droves of businesses selling out and leaving the island just as the foreign residents there.
As I see it, the only alternative for the government is simply to cordon off Orchard Road as off limits to people and save them from their misery, by moving them to the few other remaining areas of higher ground. Although this is only a stop gap measure since almost the entire island is only a few inches above sea level; even more areas being underwater during the torrential rains cannot be avoided.
The state controlled newspaper reported that previously many hitherto flood free areas in the eastern part of the tiny island, Katong, Changi and elsewhere also came under water.
The massive property damage once again ran into the millions and people, both Singaporeans and foreigners have been very badly hit.
Now with Lee Kuan Yew determined to flood Singapore, pardon the pun, not this time with water but with Chinese nationals to increase the population to several more millions in the already overcrowded tiny island, the living space is going to become smaller and smaller and eventually to breaking point.
Since Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore's dictator, like dictators everywhere else is unlikely to listen to you or I, I guess with the coming of several more millions of Chinese nationals human imports into Singapore according to the dictators plan, coupled with the progressively diminishing land space there, it will take nothing short of another miracle, like Moses to divide the Singaporean Sea to save them.
But since Singapore press is state controlled and saying anything unflattering of him will cause you to end up in jail, I guess there is nothing more to say.
