Why Singaporeans are the least xenophobic of all people
Posted by temasektimes on June 18, 2012
I think Singaporeans are the least xenophobic of all people. They fail to realise the REAL issue behind this angst against foreigners. IF the government provides jobs for Sporeans, IF the HDB flats are cheaper and easier to get, IF the public transportation is NOT overloaded and crapping all the time, IF the foreigners can speak integrate and not be so arrogant, IF they don’t try to bring their culture to Singapore, and instead adapt to Singapore way of living (we don’t dance at orchard road pavements in mini skirts okay?), there will not be this issue in the first place.
Now the governmentt is underperforming, overpaid, promises during GE are now mere promises for voting purposes, keep bringing in foreigners to staff supposedly jobs that Singaporeans shun even though these engineering and HR jobs can easily be filled by Singaporeans, and when HR is in the hands of a foreigner, dont u think he or she will bring in his own people?
All this while, Singaporeans are under pressure of increasing inflation, bad job market, having to compete with foreigners for salaries that are crazy low, having to compete for a home, having to compete for a space in the bloody MRT train. Do you think Singaporeans are being xenophonic or are they mere victims of a stupid govt policy?
