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?

VOTING IN A WEAK PRIME MINISTER IS A BETRAYAL TO SINGAPORE

Under LKY and especially under GCT, we were on way to being a 1st world society, one that is prosperous, graceful, educated and of course cultured. Will you consider our current PM to be weak? He see himself, it seems, as some sort of successes at establishing Singapore as a regional leader (although this is debatable, since both President of China and US visited our neighbours but not us)

WHY SINGAPORE GOVT MUST BEG US TO SUPPORT OUR NATIONAL ATHLETES

Singapore is probably the only country I know where the Government must beg us to support event like SEA Games or even events like SG50. I guess majority of Singaporean dun really care about such events. At best they are neutral..a growing numbers of us think such events are nothing more than meant to glorify PAP and a waste of our money
