My good friend Victor directed my attention to the 19 Feburary 2015 edition of The Straits Times, our biggest national daily. I was quite surprised to see my name mentioned in the article near the end. I had commented previously on Mr Roy’s earlier article, but it wasn’t anything noteworthy to be honest. Just a simple “Welcome to Singapore!” (damn you Chow Yun Fat for turning this movie quote into our national greeting) and a show of support.
Now, all of my secondary school friends who read that article have started calling me “Defender of the Internet”. To be honest, the Internet is not worth defending to begin with, but that title sounds cheesy enough to be worthy of Edward.
I will not pretend to ignore the immigration problems we have in this country, where the sudden explosive influx of foreigners has led to overcrowding and a strain on our country’s resources. But I cannot make any further comments about this issue, because if I choose to work overseas in the future, it would turn me into nothing but a bloody hyprocrite.
It’s not okay for foreigners to come to Singapore, but okay for me to travel to other countries and live there? That’s an incredibly moronic double standard.
Are you a moronic, hypocritical double-standard?
