EX-TRS EDITOR ALEX TAN: PM LEE MUST DISCHARGE THOSE YOUTHS CHARGED WITH SEDITION

I am writing in to express my disdain for the Sedition Charge made against editors of The Real Singapore and, more importantly, the state of this country you are making into. Please take the time to reflect on the direction you are bringing Singapore into. Singapore is first world on many fronts, but it is disappointingly third world in relation to other hallmarks of a first world society like freedom of expression, democracy and press independence.

OPPOSITION VETERAN: ALTERNATIVE MEDIA SITES MUST UNITE & BALANCE MSM INFLUENCE

The influence of NM and MSM has attained equal status. When the survey asks their interviewees where they get their information and news from, NM and MSM have equal share. This situation poses a tremendous challenge to PAP's continue dominance of political power. I sincerely hope that all NM like TRE, TRS and TOC will unite and defend this piece of land of Freedom for all Singaporeans. Without the balancing influence of NM, it will be almost impossible for Singapore to advance the dream of building a more democratic system. Hold on there, TRS! Hold on there, TOC!

RIGHTS LAWYERS SHOULD DEFEND TRS PRO-BONO

TRS prides itself as the voice of the average Singaporean. But you have to give TRS some credit for balancing the lop-sided press system in Singapore. The million dollar question is – any lawyer dare to step out to represent the duo?

HOW DID INDIANS END UP DOMINATING SG’S IT SECTOR?

Even the very few brave young Singaporeans who dare venture into the IT sector find themselves bullied by the Indian foreign legions who are the majority. Many have told me that senior Indian IT workers will never train a fresh Singaporean IT worker. They will squeeze that Singaporean out. They will make sure that the Singaporean flops so badly in their job that HR will think that all the Singaporean IT workers suck. So Singaporeans will never get to be trained in the IT field, leaving the Indians to continue to dominate that sector. It is the same as any animal species trying to eliminate competition from another species in the same forest.
