DO NOT USE FREEDOM TO SPEECH TO JUSTIFY SHAMING OF "UGLY" MISS S'PORE CONTESTANTS

Some singaporeans really crack me up: sungei road, no comments, Multimillion dollar ministers, no comments, Press freedom, no comments, Minimum wage, no comments, But Miss singapore pageant contestants "Oi our opinion ok, this is freedom of speech, they are there for me to judge them" Im sorry guys but who the fuck are you to judge them? You a professional is it? They are there to be judged by the judges, you have your opinions yes it is ok to have them.

WELL DONE NSP'S LIM TEAN, BETTER TO RESIGN THAN BE ZIPPED UP!

When I heard news that Lim Tean has resigned from NSP, I wasnt surprised of the reasons for his resignation. Curtailment of his freedom of speech is one of it. Often times, it's the alternative parties that espouses freedom of speech but in reality, fall short of implementing it within its own organization. I encountered many times where alternative parties feel uneasy when its members are vocal about issues they feel strongly about. Issues like LGBT, Tudung issue, discrimination, religion, 377A, article 154 etc.

But of course not all of the alternative parties hold such unwritten rules. It depends on the leader at helm. Some may argue that members need to toe along the party lines to achieve unity within the organization but by doing so, it instead create artificial harmony within its rank. These parties are then no better than the PAP, the very one they hope to replace. In this aspect, I'm proud to be a part of The Reform Party where its leadership never once tried to curtail my freedom of speech as long as it is done in a responsible manner. I wish Lim Tean all the best. It is better to move away than to be in a party and gets zipped up. That can spell the end of democracy.

NETIZEN: FENCE OFF HONG LIM PARK TO BAN FOREIGNERS FROM ATTENDING PINK DOT!

Netizen Kindred Cheong called for Pink dot organisers to fence off Hong Lim Park from foreigners and PRs.

I am glad that only Singaporeans and permanent residents (PRs) can attend Pink Dot from this year onwards, and only local companies can sponsor it. It is important to disallow foreign individuals and organisations from interfering in Singaporean politics and social issues. We must stop foreigners from abusing values such as democracy, freedom of speech and human rights in Singapore, and from spreading their agenda here. The Pink Dot organisers should fence off Hong Lim Park and employ security officers and registration staff to ensure that only Singaporeans and PRs attend the event.

SG GOVT SAYS FREE SPEECH ALLOWED, BUT WHOLE WORLD THINKS DIFFERENT

I refer to the High Commissioner of Singapore, London’s letter “Free speech in Singapore” (The Economist, Mar 17). It states that ““Grumble and be damned” (March 11th) alleged a lack of free speech in Singapore. Yet Singaporeans have free access to information and the internet, including to The Economist and the BBC.

A GUIDE TO WHAT YOU CAN & CANNOT WRITE UNDER S'PORE LAW

I refer to the article “Views sought on Bill covering Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital” (Straits Times, Jan 11). Parliament said it is an offence for any person to publish any evidence given, or any documents presented to the committee, or extracts, before the committee has presented its report to Parliament.”
