Ladies and Gentlemen,
Not wanting to be too brazen, may I say that I am gratified with what is happening in Singapore now. It is quite clear now that my work in political dissent there has not been in vain. Just look at it now. Not too long ago in 2008, I was arrested in Singapore for criticizing Singapore Judge Belinda Ang Saw Ean. After a great deal of publicity both locally and worldwide, I was sent to prison for 3 months.
As an ongoing occurrence, Dr. Chee Soon Juan and his brave supporters have been going to jail on a regular basis for civil disobedience.
More recently Alan Shadrake the British author was arrested for his criticism of the Singapore judiciary in his book. He plans to fight at his trial tomorrow. Singaporeans and the world have rallied to his cause.
Only yesterday a blogger had been arrested for writing that Vivian Balakrishnan, the Singapore Minister now known with scorn as "Comical Vivian" not unlike Saddam Hussein's "Comical Ali", should be "burned" together with his PAP.
Today another blogger was arrested for writing criticism of the shameful manner in which Shafie Goh was handcuffed and mistreated by police merely for taking pictures of Singapore's nationwide flooding.
Today there is a dejected looking picture of Vivian Balakrishnan in Singapore's state controlled press. Such a picture, looking sad and forlorn, always has a message in authoratarian regimes like Singapore. It can only mean "Comical Vivian" is on his way out. He gives a bad name for his blotching up the YOG games to a ever perfect image of Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore.
In Hitler's or Lee Kuan Yew's island, there is no tolerance for failure. In the one case, the firing squad. In the other dismissal and oblivion.
Goodbye Vivian. Good to have known you. Time you went to work in some government linked company trading with the Burmese military.
Having been an element responsible for instigating Singaporeans into unrest by this blog and my run ins with Lee Kuan Yew, I now sit back, continue writing and watch the fun.
The horse of public dissent has bolted from the barn. Now there is no stopping. The people are up in arms. Lee Kuan Yew would have to do one of 2 things, he has no choice. Either he has to keep arresting more and more Singaporeans for protesting, or he has to give in to freedom. And either way he loses.
This time, if indeed these protesters are the beginning of a tidal wave of islandwide dissent which I hope is the case, Lee Kuan Yew and his son better start worrying.
