Departing expat praises Singapore: It gets more things right than other countries
Posted by temasektimes on August 3, 2012
In an article published on a government-owned propaganda mouthpiece, David claimed that Singapore gets ‘more things’ right than other countries even if its citizens may disagree.
“Singapore’s impact on expatriates and other visitors, no matter how long they reside on this island, is often forever. It’s the palpable feeling that somehow Singapore gets more things right than other countries, and that day to day life here is on the whole better than in many other places,” he wrote.
David then went on to wax lyrical about Singapore’s excellent schools, universities, hospitals, high standard of living and low crime rates which would make Hitler’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels blushed in shame.
As expected, he was allowed to interfered in Singapore’s domestic politics with impunity by lashing out at native Singaporeans for not appreciating what they ‘have’.
“Singapore has its own deficiencies too and Singaporeans are only too quick to point them out….I urge Singaporeans to see, as so many expatriates see, the superiority of Singapore over so many other countries,” he added.
For some strange reasons, despite his admiration of the Singapore ‘paradise’, David Fedo chose not to become a Singaporean and left for the United States eventually after earning obscene salaries and having a good time here.
