4th least corrupt country in the world!

Singapore is the 4th least corrupt country in the world. Only 3 countries, Denmark, Sweden and New Zealand were better than us. In Asia, we are the least corrupt. Hongkong and Japan lie quite far away from us. Not a bad achievement. To take stock, countries that are more corrupt than us are Finland, Switzerland, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Austria, Germany, Norway UK, US and many many more, in fact the rest of the world. The Americans, the Brits and the Europeans should stop criticising us about corruption. We are less corrupt than them. But it is all relative. It would be better if the survey by the Transparency International's annual Corruption Perceptions Index said that we are not corrupt. The survey just says that we are not as corrupt as others.

If you believe the survey, you must do so with a bucket of salt, just like the rating agencies take on the CDOs etc. There is nothing to believe in at face value in this world.

I protest. The results are biased toward the white-fella countries.

Anyone with half a brain would agree that S'pore is the least corrupt country in the world.

This is FACT. What are people talking about, and who is bribing them to denigrate Singapore?
