PAP's Foreign Friendly Policy Sees New Citizens Take Full Advantage And Laughing All The Way To The Bank

Singaporeans are always told the influx of foreign talent is good for us, for it will create wealth for us further down the road. Foreign influx rendering many Singaporeans unemployed and underemployed is not something based on fact, we are told. "Please do not politicize this issue" is the refrain we get from our Millionaire Ministers.

PM Lee Says Singapore Needs New People: Is He Hinting At Increase Birth Rates, Or More PRs?

PM Lee Says Singapore Needs New People: Is He Hinting At Increase Birth Rates, Or More PRs?

Having children? It will just add to financial strain already felt by many Singaporeans. So is this just an excuse for PM Lee and his government, to say that since Singaporeans cannot replace themselves, then they have no more choice but to keep increasing the number of new citizens and replace ourselves? What has our Singapore become?

FOREIGN & NEW CITIZEN POPULATION INCREASED 7 TIMES MORE THAN TRUE BLUE S'POREANS

The citizen population grew last year by 33,900 (3,408,900 – 3,375,000). However, 20,815 new citizens were granted in 2015. So, does this mean that the net increase in “real” (non-new) citizens was only about 13,085 (33,900 – 20,815) (citizen births – citizen deaths – increase in Singaporeans overseas) for the year? If so, then the annual increase in new citizens may be outstripping that of “real” (non-new) citizens by about 7,730 (20,815 – 13,085) a year.

OPPOSITION PARTIES SHOULD SPEAK UP FOR THE CONCERNS OF NEW CITIZENS

In my view, some opposition parties inflicted a lot of damage on themselves when they went on vocally against immigration. At the forum, I made one suggestion which I have never heard anyone else make before. I said opposition parties should begin to speak up for the concerns of new citizens; if possible find one or two as candidates.

NON-S'POREAN POPULATION HITS ALL TIME HIGH?

I refer to the article ”Singapore population hits 5.54m but growth slowest in a decade” (Channel NewsAsia, Sep 30). It states that ”The number of non-residents — largely comprised of foreigners working here and their families, as well as students — rose by 2.1 per cent to 1.63 million, slower than the 2.9 per cent growth the previous year.” After adding the 530,000 permanent residents (PRs) – does it mean that the non-Singaporean population has reached an all time high of 39 per cent?
