What can we say of the future of Singapore then?

I am not sure if you have read the latest news from Straits Times about a survey conducted by Milieu Insight about how Singaporeans are divided on the latest COVID measures. [LINK]

But as the comments on ST’s Facebook page would show, the general public is confused as to how the survey was conducted to show such results. [LINK]

The report on the survey also doesn’t state which was the entity that commissioned this survey.

Based on information in ACRA, Milieu Insight — which has its roots from UK-based YouGov where three of its current directors were — has shareholders based in Thai, Singapore, Indian, Virgin Islands, UK and US.

The five-year old company is led by a Singaporean CEO, an American Chairman, a Canadian COO, a Singaporean CFO and an Indian director (who recently got appointed and I am not really sure his role in the company).

Anyway, the point is to note that under the proposed Foreign Interference (Countermeasures) Act, such a company registered in Singapore definitely could easily be labelled as a foreign principal engaging in foreign influence, particularly based on the kind of information that it churns out. [LINK] and [LINK]

Just because it is engaged by the government, directly or indirectly in one form or another, it is very likely to be spared such a designation.

While in another case, such as a solely Singapore owned company, say TOC for example, was to present a survey that is not so aligned with the government’s interest, it would easily be decried as one that is sponsored by foreign principal (even if there is no proof of it, because the law requires merely the suspicion of the Minister of Home Affairs).

The person running it, can be arrested for this and without the possibility of bail, with a possible fine of up to $100,000 and 14 years of imprisonment.

A Singaporean running a legit business in his company has to fear for his life while a foreign run business can happily go on their life because they are aligned with the ruling party.

What can we say of the future of Singapore then?

    >>What can we say of the future of Singapore then?<<

    Why do U think I've been using the term "SINKaPOOR"?

    I suppose sinkies – at least some of them – are now facing the REALITY of the epic failures and incompetence of the emperor without clothes.

    What to do? Too many sinkies refused to believe what I've been saying all along……for the past 23 years or so…..instead they succumbed to the wayang-party snake oil cons………

    In a democracy, people make stupid decisions and voted idiots or tyranny into power. They made their choice and they make again next time, until they self correct and fix it.

    When a tyranny comes into power without people making stupid choices, these people are in shit. They still have choice though, wait for the tyrant to die, naturally or unnaturally, or have a bloodly revolution.

    Imho

    The govt has been outsourcing as they lack the skill set to manage a first world island state.

    “Drawing on his own experiences running the Monetary Authority of Singapore during the 2008 to 2009 global financial crisis, Mr Heng said many chief executives of international banks in Singapore had given him outstanding advice on how to deal with the crisis – demonstrating that they had Singapore’s interests at heart.”

    POLITICAL SURVEY RESEARCH is like m*st*rbation – you get exactly what (expected) result from your own exertion (one-sided), NOT THE REAL THING.

    I don’t believe any of those craps.

    Caught you…. Democratic Progressive Party IB 1450 trying to use fake news to fool Singaporeans ?

    The link to the announcement had been fabricated by President Tsai’s paid operative.

    To all Singaporeans and gong gong TRE Techie who fell for President Tsai’s spearheaded fake news, read the richardson report, the truth.

    The so-called confirmation of the degree awarded came from a web “announcement” in an unofficial channel identified to belong to a paid operative (F. Shih) of Tsai in the University of London. The University has kept a distance from this “announcement”, by neither acknowledging nor denying its validity, thus allowing itself maximal wiggle room should push comes to shove.

    Now, where is Roy and all the pro democracy pro backside poker supporter ?

    The poll is obviously fake.
    I simply disbelieve so many citizens support the restrictions on social gatherings.
    Most are really fed up but can’t say so due to the repression the govt will unleash. Look at Melbourne

The University has kept a distance from this “announcement”, by neither acknowledging nor denying its validity, thus allowing itself maximal wiggle room should push comes to shove.//

    assuming that you are right hor, surely LSE will come out to debunk it since it involves such an important person of a country and a lot of people are referencing to this so-called “fake” (if really fake ??) link ????

    can you then point us to an any authoritative LSE link or any link (must be authoritative from the school itself ???) saying so ??

    besides, her education all along has been in law even in TW to start with, so it is quite a natural progression for her to further her education (eg. perhaps masters or phds) in some other overseas prestigious institutions ?? and if not, then it must be proven lar ???

    https://news.cornell.edu/stories/2020/01/cornell-law-alumna-reelected-president-taiwan

    if like that, anyone can say anyone’s phd or master (especially those held by the tua-liat hoots ???) is fake and then ask for the university to reveal the awarding examiners ?? like that, chim-bo-eng ???? and then after that, if still not satisfied, you start to question the credentials of the examiners ???

    //The University has kept a distance from this “announcement”, by neither acknowledging nor denying its validity,//

    aiyoh. you mean such an institution would allow its good name to be abused and tarnished by keeping quiet ??? not her supporter lar but find her distractors quite funny lar ??? ain’t the acknowledging come from the so-called paid link ???

    I also understand that there are made-good businessman who are also able to earn their phds leh ???
