Last month I spit venom at the assertion that Singapore is not a country. Some ministers in the PAP (People’s Action Party) are using this tack to counter complains from Singaporeans on the foreign immigration issue.
At the launch of his latest book ”Lee Kuan Yew: Hard Truths to Keep Singapore Going,” our own Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew said the same thing again. That Singapore is NOT a country yet. Now I know this time, he put a “yet” at the back to lessen the impact but you get the message. Singapore is NOT a country.
The funny thing is I just got a notice telling me to go for reservist! So now I have to go for reservist, to put on an army uniform and defend a non-country! How do I feel about it?
Take a wild guess!
