National Day: majulah PAP?

20110715-010539.jpg

Middle East leaders cultivate a personality cult by having huge posters of themselves everywhere so their people are reminded all the time who the big boss is.

So when I see huge posters of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in connection with National Day, I am left wondering if the PAP government is subtly sending the same message to daft Singaporeans.

I get the very strong impression that it’s a PAP National Day.

Judging by the thousands who brave the incredibly bad traffic congestion at the land checkpoints to “flee” the country on National Day, many feel the same way.

You may say hey, Singapore is your homeland.

Ya, but with a Singapore flooded with the so-called Foreign Talent, thanks to the generous PAP immigration policy, many of us don’t feel it’s our homeland anymore.

Even Sumiko Tan feels this way, and she wrote about this in the Sunday Times.

I’m sure sometimes you wonder if the people you come across in your daily life are Singaporeans or Foreign Talent.

For this influx of PRC people, 60% of Singaporeans who voted PAP should be eternally grateful to be given the rare opportunity to learn from such people to be more hardworking and harder-striving.

    You can’t beat the North Koreans when it comes to this kind of thing……

  2. Erm.. let’s be fair shall we? leaders of even the free world will do the same thing. you need not look further than USA and you have Obama and his face superimposed with the star-spangled banner. I mean it’s a little bit pushing if you have to find fault even with the National Day decorations. politicians everywhere across various political systems would attempt to cultivate a personality cult. I already thought the PAP is quite poor in it already.
