White Prick Casey apologises but gets PR firm and lawyers to hound Singaporeans

If someone is really apologetic and sorry about what he has done, would he engage a PR firm to front his apology and get his lawyers to go after those who shared and posted the hate that he spread? Obviously, not. Anton Casey even claims that his FB was hacked and the video was taken out of context. Looks like this British FT never learn his lesson.

PAP POLITICIANS ARE THE HIGHEST PAID IN THE WORLD

Do you know that Mr Ong Eng Guan, one of the pioneer members of the People's Action Party received a $7,000 monthly salary for his position as Mayor of the Singapore City Council from 1957- 1958? This salary made him the highest paid mayor in the world! After factoring the total annual inflation, $7,000 in 1958 is a whopping $56,591 in present terms. This amounts to an annual salary of $680,000! However, this still dwarfs in comparison to PM Lee Hsien Loong's current $2.2 million salary!

Some 2,900 unionised workers in Singapore were laid off in 2013 -- a 76 per cent spike from 2012, when about 1,650 unionised workers were displaced. About 90 per cent of total retrenchments in the unionised sector came from manufacturing. The labour movement, the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), attributed this to firms relocating operations out of Singapore, or the shutting down of production facilities.

WOODLANDS CHECKPOINT: 1500 GOALKEEPERS GUARDING SINGAPORE'S LAST LINE OF DEFENCE

Woodlands Checkpoint commander Ong Choon Beng has 1,500 goalkeepers at his disposal. That is how he refers to his team of Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers, who keep a clean sheet for Singapore the way world- class Dane Peter Schmeichel did at football giants Manchester United. But one miss is enough to undermine years of vigilance. "You can be Peter Schmeichel and save 10,000 goals, but let one through and people say you're kayu (Malay word for 'wooden' meaning silly)," says Assistant Commissioner Ong.

Welcome, Anton Casey, to Social Media 101 (3 credits)

In response to this event, sites like mothership.sg have tried to be helpful, offering advice like “The moral of the story? Always set your Facebook account to private.” Great advice! Online privacy! Of course, that’s utterly impractical. Facebook is not for privacy. If you want privacy, you write your thoughts down in a hard copy diary, in a personal language you invented, with a complex cipher. Then you burn the diary. Then you eat the ashes.
