PM LEE CALLS FOR STRENGTHENING OF COMMUNITY BONDS, DO THEY EXIST IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Dear A.S.S. Editor

PM Lee suggested during the Emergency Preparedness Day at Teck Ghee yesterday that Singapore should strengthen community bonds, in order for terrorism threat to be flushed out. Agreed that this is the best way we can combat terrorism.

But, do community bonds still exists amongst residents? Maybe the older estates, where neighbours might have known each other for all their lives, these community bonds are strong. What about the newer estates? Places like Sengkang, Punggol?

People living here basically keep to themselves, it is more like morning, go to twork, late night families return home. Plus, there are just too many foreigners living in these estates, that community bonds just does not exist. people basically live their own lifes, some don’t even know how many people actually live next door to them!

So, PM Lee’s call for community bonds might need a lot of work.
