ANTON CASEY: WE HOPE TO RETURN WHEN WE FEEL SAFE

Briton Anton Casey, who sparked a furore by calling public transport users "poor people", left Singapore for Perth yesterday because of threats made against his family. The 39-year-old, who took along his wife - former Singapore beauty queen Bernice Wong - and five-year-old son to Western Australia state, also apologised again for his remarks, this time offering to do community work.

COCKY BRIT ANTON CASEY SACKED

FRIEND OF ANTON CASEY SPEAKS OUT

I lived in Singapore for 8 years and know Anton. there is no question that what he posted was stupid in the extreme. He also comes across in person as certainly more to the smug and arrogant end of the spectrum. What i will say is that the venom that his actions have unleashed is like nothing I've ever seen. Death threats. Comments on his wife looking like a tranny and son who looks like he's retarded. Pictures of his home put online and address posted. And people asking on comment boards what school his son goes to.

BRITISH EXPAT CONDEMNS SINGAPORE

However, the backlash here has been COMPLETELY over the top and actually pretty sinister. Death threats (allegedly, but I can believe it based on death threats a mate received for something completely unrelated), some pretty hideous and unwarranted abuse of his son and wife, people cancelling their HSBC accounts because that's where Casey works(ed), someone reporting him to the police for sedition! Today, we've even had a senior politician jumping on board telling everyone how upset the comments made him. There's also been a deluge of anti-Caucasian and British comments posted online, including some nasty racist stuff.

THE PR CASE FOR ANTON CASEY

So Singapore’s most reviled expat Anton Casey has hired Fulford, a public relations firm, to burnish his tattered image. His “case’’ has made headlines in the United Kingdom so that his home country knows what a loud lout he’s been in Singapore. Even his company has come out to distance itself from him. Since he has apologised etc and we good Singaporeans should really move on but can’t seem to, here’s some unsolicited advice for his PR firm to help out their client.

ARE THESE CAUCASIANS REAL FOREIGN TALENTS?

I know a Brit who runs an investment firm for private clients. Basically, it is a one-man office. Unfortunately, we belong to the same alma mater, but he is on the dark side. It was ugly, but it was an example of foreign trash, not talent. What makes this matter disgraceful is the people supporting this Brit are Singaporeans who are engulfed by greed. To give this Brit the benefit of the doubt, maybe he is talented to con. Shall I call him "Con Artist"?

EXPERIENCES WITH COCKY BRITISH EXPATS

He pulled my sleeve and told me to boldly cross the busy street when we were Hong Kong, telling me that he is "Kwai Lo" (Hong Kong term for expat) and nobody will dare run him down. And he was right. The van screeched to a halt and we made it across the street safely. I turned to apologize to the driver but he just waddled off. I was shocked that he was so confident that he would get the same treatment in any Asian country, since he has worked in Hong Kong, Manila and Singapore. For the first time, I regretted employing him as our CFO.
