Ladies and Gentlemen,
The mass protests for democracy in Cairo and the Arab world should cause the Singapore strongman Lee Kuan Yew some concern. If these popular demands for change has taught us anything, it is that the days of tyrants and dictators having their merry way each time is gone. The Internet and mass communication both nationally and internationally has suddenly empowered the common man across the world from Cairo to Caracas. Now dictators all over the world including Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew should remember that it only takes a few to protest because they may become a million.
Singapore is no different from any other dictatorship anywhere; it does not have a free press; it does not allow it's citizens their fundamental rights of free speech expression and assembly; it jails its citizens without trial under the Internal Security Act; it uses the law as a tool with compliant corrupt judges like Belinda Ang Saw Ean to destroy political opponents and it has one of the largest secret police establishments for a country of it's size.
And Lee Kuan Yew should keep in mind that unless he shuts down the Internet like Egypt has done, Singaporeans are watching every single video coming out of Egypt of courageous Egyptians standing firm in the face of the might of the Egyptian army demanding what is rightfully theirs, their freedom, and they are now asking whether they too should demand their rights from Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore's Hosni Mubarak.
In crowded jam packed sardine can of Singapore where 5 million live in just a few square miles, it really does not take more than a few to start a riot. All it takes is a handful of Singaporeans to say enough is enough and take to the streets, and the next minute you will have another Cairo in the making.
I am waiting and watching just like anyone else interested in the goings on in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore, as to when Singaporeans would finally stand up like their brave Egyptian friends and demand democratic change and an end to Lee Kuan Yew's dictatorship.
I have every confidence that it not only will happen, it will happen soon. The oppressed of Egypt have finally managed to prise open Pandora's Box and the people around the world including Singaporeans are, I am certain, going to shout Bloody Murder.
Lee Kuan Yew be careful. Your time is coming.
