Pinoy ‘FT’ thanked PM Lee: Please continue to bring more people to Singapore!

The Singapore government’s move to sustain population growth via immigration may have caused some disquiet among Singaporeans, but one group of people are expressing their support and appreciation for it.
Since Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong started his Facebook page last Saturday, it was inundated with pledges of support and gratitude from the immigrants and foreigners who have benefited from the PAP’s pro-foreigner policies, one of whom is Filipino ‘FT” Angelo Marc Jandugan who wrote:
“Hello sir, on behalf of all the Filipino community in Singapore and new citizens like myself, we thank you so much for believing in us and I hope you will continue your good policy of bringing more people from all over the word to take Singapore forward.”
According to his Facebook page, Angelo Marc Jandugan graduated from the University of the Philippines Diliman and is currently working at Deutsche Bank, Singapore. He is probably earning much more here in Singapore than back home.
Angelo Marc Jandugan need not be too worried as the Singapore government has proclaimed its intention to mass-import more ‘foreign talent’ like himself into Singapore as exemplified by a statement released by the National Talent and Population Division under the Prime Minister’s Office two days ago:
“We will continue to ensure that we take in immigrants who are of good quality and able to integrate well into our society.”
And that includes a precious ‘special needs’ pinoy boy living in Choa Chu Kang who was allowed by a PAP MP to drum daily for several weeks to develop his innate ‘talent’.
With so many new citizens like Angelo Marc Jandugan feeling touched by the PAP for giving them a new start in Singapore, it’s only natural they will cast their votes for it in future elections to keep it in power forever.
