Ladies and Gentlemen,
In a country such as Singapore, which not only controls all the newspapers and the entire media, TV Radio and every other mass communication system, but also owns them totally, you can say anything you want anytime, and you may even get away with it to a point.
Unfortunately for them, now that point has been reached. People both local and foreign have begun to understand the game. And when that happens, as now, the plan no longer works.
Take the following.
1. Lee Kuan Yew runs the place and we know it is a dictatorship, yet the government claims it is a multi party democracy.
2. The Judiciary is corrupt and is an essential arm of the government to promote government policy and silence dissent. They claim it has an independent judiciary and the rule of law.
3. The people either live slightly above subsistence level or in poverty, but they claim Singaporeans are the 4th richest in the world.
4. The newspapers are no better than mere company newsletters publishing the latest news of the Singapore government, when they claim it is a free press and independent.
5. Chinese are preferred in housing jobs and benefits while Malays and Indians are discriminated but they claim there is racial equality.
6. Foreigners are brought into Singapore in the millions to suppress wages and deny a decent living for Singaporeans to keep Singapore a low wage country, but the government claims that it is because they want to be competitive.
7. Lee Kuan Yew and his ministers pay themselves millions of dollars in corruption which is rampant on the government levels but they claim Singapore is corruption free.
8. Singapore today has a serious crime problem with murders and muggings happening daily but they claim Singapore has the lowest crime rate in the world.
9. Severe flooding happens throughout the island almost every 5 days with as much as 2 feet of water in places, but they claim it happens only once in 5 years.
10. The newspapers do not provide anything that goes on in the country except reporting crime and trivia but they claim they have the best newspapers in the world.
11. English writing standards in the newspapers have dropped so low and that even high school newsletters in the US are better written but they claim that their newspapers are the best in the world.
12. Everyday 2 people commit suicide but the newspapers never report these facts.
13. The people are not told the exact extent of the brain drain form the island, how many are resigning from the government, how many are exactly coming into Singapore from where and other similar data, while they claim they are the most transparent country in the world.
14. The reputation of the Singapore legal system has dropped so low that the High Court sits idle most of the time because there are no cases, while they claim Singapore is the legal hub of the world.
15. The island imports for money foreign athletes from China who are given instant citizenship and made to compete in the games and win gold medals but none of them are really Singaporean. Yet they publish headlines news in the state controlled press that Singaporeans have won these gold medals.
16. They purchase a sailboat called Uniquely Singapore and employ Australian and British skippers and crew and sail the world with one miserable Singaporean passenger and yet claim that the Singaporean skippered the yacht around the world. We all know most Singaporeans cannot swim even though surrounded by water, and will die of fright if put in a sailboat.
17. They claim that Singapore housewives are going to scale Everest but a day or 2 later they all gave up even without reaching base camp.
18. Singapore welcomes the world's money launderers, embezzlers, tax evaders and criminals of all sorts for settlement, who stack their money in the island, but they claim that only the best human beings in the world are accepted for settlement.
19. Singapore's Geylang is today the second biggest red light district in the world second only to Bangkok where whores are crowding the streets, and used condoms are littering the streets, with HIV infection rate sky high, but the they deny it is a vice hub of the world or that people are dying of HIV.
I can go on but you got the message. What is going on there is comedy, Singapore style. And thank God the world has got wind of it.
