LEE HSIEN LOONG: SINGAPOREANS NEED TO BE UNITED AND COHESIVE

The rich and poor divide was also highlighted, and he discussed the importance of keeping our society open so that all Singaporeans can interact comfortably with one another. This includes the way we welcome those who are new to our shores. Mr Lee said: "I know that immigration and foreign workers are sensitive issues, we have had big debates about them, we have argued over them. Finally, the conclusion is that we continue to need both, but we have to manage the numbers, the pace, and be able to absorb and integrate and maintain the spirits of our society.

ANG MOHS MUST WAKE UP!

I do not blame my fellow citizens for being angry. In fact, angry is an understatement. For so long, we have allowed the foreigners to stamp on us. There is a long list as far as I can remember. From the brawl outside Suntec City to being called dogs to the racist remarks by Amy Cheng…patience has a limit. Ang Mohs must wake up.
