myth 36

'Singaporeans are fed up with progress...' by Mr Brown. This myth came from Mr Brown's sensational article of polemics. And I must agree that it is a myth, a distorted truth. For Mr Brown is talking only about 30% of Singaporeans, those who are trying to make ends meet. He has not covered the large group of happy Singaporeans, especially those earning $100k or more a month. Even people earning peanuts are very happy. How then can Mr Brown said that Singaporeans are fed up with progress? It is right for Bhavani to chastise Mr Brown for distorting the truth. For if Mr Brown is telling the truth, then there would not be 4 million smiles. Mr Brown's fault is to look at only one small segment of unhappy Singaporeans. The truth is that there are many happy Singaporeans, and Bhavani knows better.

30% is 1.2million of Singaporeans. So they are not going to get their 4 million smiles unless they print the photo of everyone's IC card. ^^

It seems that this news of Mr Brown being suspended is floating around all the cyberspace kopitiams. I have not seen an official version yet.

Judging from the comments in mysingaporenews blog by foreign talents, I think the best replacement for Mr Brown must be a foreign talent. They are so happy with our govt policies and have glowing stories to tell about life here. It will be a refreshing change from Mr Brown's or any locals article on life here. Singaporeans are just so negative and pessimistic about the good life they have here. They did not know how good life is until they go overseas. Send them to PNG.

For more healthy, positive and uplifting news, I strongly recommend that the replacement for Mr Brown should be a foreign talent.

mr brown, just like the majority of online lurkers are nothing more than armchair critics. Talk is easy and also cheap. You think you can do a better job than the current crop of leaders, then please offer yourselves as an alternative. Otherwise, you have zero credibility.
