Singapore. The final demise of the institution of Parliament.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

As if it was not bad enough already, with 82 out of 84 members of a so called Singapore Parliament, supposedly a representative body, coming from Lee Kuan Yew's party, we now have to have totally unrepresentative people there called Nominated Members (nominated by Lee Kuan Yew himself) to be speaking there!

Speaking for whom? And about what?

Are Singaporeans so ignorant as to not even realize the island is supposed to be a Parliamentary democracy! And have you nothing to say!

The Singapore island Parliament, even if you wanted to be as kind as possible, is inescapably a clown show, period. And Lee Kuan Yew is now literally treating you as no better than "digits" as he has confessed truthfully for once.

Anyone with eyes should be able to see what I see. It is literally factually and in reality, a one party dictatorship. There can be no other description of it in the English language.

Which brings me to a movie that I watched "Around the World in 80 days" when in the end, Phileas Fogg walks into London's Reform Club with a woman and his butler Passpartout. For over a hundred years since the beginning of the Club no woman has ever set foot in it! When the club members saw the woman in the club, aghast in horror, this they said must be the end of the British Empire!

In Singapore, Parliamentary Democracy is dead. Finally dead. What you have is undiluted unmitigated dictatorship.

Heil Mein Fuhrer Hitler (no Lee Kuan Yew)! Deutchland (no Singapore) uber alles!

Dear Mr Nair,

This is a repeat mail. I forgot to add that I am disappointed to find Lee people in my adopted country.

* to protect my identity. I modify the salutation.

Dear (Madam/Sir)*

Thank you for your email of 25 June 2009 to the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship, Senator Chris Evans, concerning Ms Judith Prakash. The Minister has asked that I reply on his behalf.

I appreciate and understand your concern regarding the decision in Singapore to jail three men for contempt of court for wearing T-shirts depicting kangaroos in judges robes. However, it would not be appropriate for me to comment on judicial processes in other countries.

All applications for a visa to Australia are carefully considered against the relevant legislative requirements which include health, character and security requirements.

The character requirements of the Migration Act 1958 also require visa applicants to satisfy decision makers that, among other things, there is not a significant risk that they will vilify, incite discord in, or represent a danger to the Australian community or a segment of the Australian community.

If any of these requirements were not met Ms Judith Prakash would not have been granted an Australian visa.

Thank you for bringing this matter to the attention of the Minister.

Yours sincerely
Ken McArthur
A/g Assistant Secretary

To Anonymous,
Thanks. Can you confirm whether it was a visitor visa or immigrant visa. From information, it appears she has left the country for good with her husband. Appreciate your interest. If this is so, this may the beginning of incresing numbers of judges and key collaborators of the regime leaving. It is good news if this is so.

Dear Mr Nair,

I do not know.

Fortunately or not. Personal data is confidential.

I am not hopeful that she can survive in Australia. Aussies tend to rebel and are suspicious of authorities. Respect for authorities is not by legitimate power but through deeds. - i.e. even police have to earn the public's respect.

As for people too conditioned to Singapore style of doing things. I believe that after the initial honeymoon period, she will not adapt to the easy lifestyle of the Aussies and will pine to return to Singapore.

It is often said that the Eureka Stockade (and other events) has been characterised as the "Birth of Australia"

You have to stand firm for your rights.
