Education is not equally provided to all. Chinese Singaporeans are given priority for education over other races. The island's universities will not enroll any student who does not possess a suitability certificate issued by the government. If you happen to be seen as a political threat, you will not be allowed a tertiary education.

This sucking effect, sucking the Singaporean talent out of Lee Kuan Yew's island goes on unabated at an ever increasing speed throughout the

In the past Singapore and it's dictator Lee Kuan Yew have gone to great lengths to try to persuade Singaporeans to remain behind, even calling them "quitters" and unpatriotic. But they fail to realize that as long as Lee Kuan Yew and his government treat Singaporeans as nothing but sheep, they will leave if they see opportunity elsewhere to live as men.
With a miniscule population in the island of no more than 2.5 million local born, and at the rate they are emigrating to the West. There is simply no stopping the entire educated population of
