Singapore's Deputy Prime Minister Teo tells Singaporeans, it is not enough for foreigners to take your jobs

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Singapore's state controlled newspaper Straits Times of April 29, 2012 has the story, "Do more to help foreigners adjust: DPM Teo". There are several statements here which Singaporeans should be up in arms against.

First it reads "As more Singaporeans go into the world to study work and live overseas, more foreigners are moving here and helping to make Singapore cosmopolitan and vibrant".

Why Singaporeans whom the Lee ruling family of Singapore regularly claim in their state controlled newspapers to have the 4th highest GDP and standard of living in the world, would want to leave and settle abroad in such large numbers is not explained, and neither is an explanation necessary. Such a claim is simply a figment of their imagination. True there are a few millionaires in Singapore but the rest merely make out a living in a Stalinist one party state, where even your thinking is enforced and anyone having contrarian ideas are intimidated and victimized.

As to foreigners coming into Singapore making it "cosmopolitan and vibrant" will anyone explain to me how a Chinese man from the impoverished parts of Communist China who is illiterate except for Chinese Mandarin and totally devoid of any English or for that matter anything makes Singapore island “cosmopolitan” and “vibrant” is puzzling indeed. As your are aware, these are the preferred "foreign talent" of Singapore’s ruling family. Far from making it "cosmopolitan and vibrant" they are turning the island into another Chinese city, one from the depressed areas of rural China.

For anyone who knows Singapore to be told that he is asking native Singaporeans to "welcome and integrate foreigners" is simply outrageous. Is it not enough for foreigners to be taking jobs from locals, for them to depress the wages and living standards of natives and to turn Singapore into another Communist boring repressive, subservient city? After having to suffer all this discriminations and indignity, do they now have to "welcome" and "help" them as well. They are lucky they are not getting a right beating, since had this been happening in any other country; you would be seeing a great number of Chinese from China with black eyes.

I am sure DPM Teo, Lee Kuan Yew's son's sidekick and minion knows the game is lost. Singaporeans do not want to have families, babies or anything to do with Singapore Island run by the Lee ruling family. They simply want out. And the more he makes such silly statements in his state controlled newspapers, the more native Singaporeans would simply leave as they are doing now.

DPM Teo is simply another minion who says these things which makes no sense because he gets paid very well for saying it. That’s all.

Many years ago, the Big Guy aka (LKY) only accepted medical degrees from 28 universities. Singaporean who were not graduates from the listed universities were not allowed to practice in SG. End result, these graduates were accepted by UK, US, Australia, NZ and became leading experts in their field today. In 2002, PAP reversed the policy and allowed indian / chinese doctors to practise in SG. Imagine how the parents of the affected individuals felt when the policy was changed. LKY always harped on getting president scholars to make the best policies. Their policy would work for a short while and then back fire. All I can say is PAP and those connected to them will someday deal with all the curse that has come out from the hearts of those badly affected by their policies.
