Can we afford to look the other way?

Not my problem. They were brought in by contractors and abandoned by contractors. So the contractors responsible should take care of their problems. There were 179 Bangladeshi workers out of job, out of money, out of food, and no where to go. Who should do something to help them? Like it or not, they now become a social problem to everyone. The whole process of bringing in foreign workers and the problems arising is going to fall flat on the citizens and the govt. The contractors are going to abscond and the people and govt will have to pick up the pieces. For these poor workers, sending them back is only the beginning of their bigger problems. They have a huge debt to settle that the cannot be settled without a job and an income here. And now it is only 179. It can be 1790 or 17900. Then what?

Why do these foreigners want to work in developing other country(SIN) and not stay at home to help develop their own nations?

And be with their families? Make some little little money but sacrifice many many loves, worth it?

puppy.

Under TOTAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL these unemployed foreigners can be captured as slaves.

Imagine, here is a wonderful opportunity for The State to realise a benefit due to an unavoidable economic calamity.

As slaves, these folks will no longer be 'valueless' and unemployed. They can be used for a variety of uses, and if all else fails, they can be cut up and used as 'spare parts' for S'pore citizens requiring organ transplants.

Under TOTAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL it is the responsibility of the state to seize every economic opportunity using absolute powers, and to use those assets in manners fit to serving the immediate and long-term prospects of a Great Civilization.

haha, has matilah_singapura joined the PAP? or is it the worker's party?

Please, no party politics for me.

The only people fit to rule are the ones with the required genetic makeup. Joining a party or organisation doesn't give anyone a political right to govern the country if they are chosen by free elections.

Having TOTAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL is not about politics — it is about the removal of politics so that a Single Supreme Leader and his special team realise their destiny — their natural, genetically-given right to RULE over the lives of lesser beings — who need guidance and control.

Sorry, I think we can look the other way.
Reason, our super talent planned all these, so they must solve this as well.
The good time has ended, no 6.5 million... perhaps 1 million unwanted workers... plus another 1 million foreign talents fighting for the same small piece of cake left..... SIGH

hi lost4ever,

i think the people should do something to help these poor buggers. how about organising some charity shows to raise fund? toc is trying to do something.

our supertalents are busy trying to save the country and our investments. better don't distract them to do mundane stuff.
