MR CASEY, I RATHER BE ON THE TRAIN

You stink, like the rich people who think of ways not to change the system that allows people to be paid less than minimum wage, that allows contracts that terminate you for bogus reasons because its cheaper to get someone else. Thank you for your years of service. But we will be letting you go. You stink like the rich people who only want to game the system. Which is fine, to each his own. But then they turn around and piss on the people who make their world run.

“Mummy, flying economy is worse than taking the MRT!”

Seriously, if he is as rich as he implied, what with his sneers at S’poreans travelling on the MRT, why isn’t he and his family travelling biz or first class?

Do you really believe he will henceforth learn to have less contempt for the poor because he's been so firmly castigated for insulting them? Logically, the answer must be a resounding NO! He will continue to detest and despise the less fortunate, and perhaps even more so now that he will perceive himself as having suffered humiliation at their hands.

Mr Anton Casey’s remarks were inappropriate. By that measure, many of the responses attacking him and his family, including death threats, were inappropriate and disproportionate to his mistake.

WHY ANTON CASEY SHOULDN’T BE THE ONE LEAVING SINGAPORE

A few days ago, General Secretary of the Singapore Kindness Movement Mr William Wan wrote an article for The Straits Times, imploring Singaporeans to show some empathy towards Anton Casey, the Briton who had posted disparaging remarks about our public transport system online. Some commenters agreed with Mr Wan, and praised him for his outlook, while others responded with indignation, claiming he wasn’t a “true blue Singaporean” because he had “sided” with Casey.
