Singaporean to PAP leaders: Stop labeling us as ‘xenophobic’!
Posted by temasektimes on September 5, 2012
Can I beg the govt leaders stop using the following messages in future:
1. Singaporeans or netizens are xenophobic/anti-foreigners… we must make friends with our foreign colleagues/neighbours (Common Singaporeans have been doing this for donkey years)
2. Without foreign workers, who going to build our MRT, HDB flats… (Singaporeans did not meant we want to kick out all foreigners. We need foreign workers esp ‘blue-collar’/service jobs as we move up value chain into a developed country status. Whether the foreigners are general workers e.g construction or cleaners OR PMET, it should not at the expense of depriving Singaporeans a job or depressing wage.)
3. Stop mentioning that WE are also an immigrant society, our forefathers are also from so-so places. (must well say all human beings are descendents of ape originated from certain part of Africa, maybe we can invite the Zoo Ah-Meng to sit in Parliament next time ha ha).
