Reverse emigration

This may be a new concept to some but is not new in reality. A good example is the USA and Australia where the migrants became so extensive and a majority over the local population that they became the dominant political force of their country of adoption. It could be easier for it to happen in Australia, and New Zealand for that matter, as the local populations were small. For it to happen in the USA required extraordinary circumstances like mass and uncontrolled new migrants and a reversed process like genocide of the local population.

Reverse emigration is very easily effected in a small island and small population like ours. We could actually be near the tipping point where foreigners are more than the locals. It could already have been if PRs are recognized as foreigners, plus all the temporary stayers.

What would happen are the effects of life on the locals when the locals become a minority in their own country. We are not feeling the pressure yet as the language of English is still widely used officially and informally. When foreign languages become the lingua franca, when signboards are changed, when lifestyle and social habits are changed, when foreigners are imposing their rights over the locals, the impact would be more felt and immediate.

Would there be a day where there are more foreigners in a train or bus than locals? Would there be a day when the HR depts are dominated by foreigners who choose to hire foreigners and discriminate against the locals? Would there be a day when foreigners dominate the civil service and govt and policies are more favourable to foreigners? Would there be a day when foreigners are given free scholarship to study in our universities and locals would have to beg, borrow or steal to do that?

Would there be a day when foreigners would freely cut queues for services in retail outlets or public services because the providers of services were foreigners and not locals? Would there be a day where the landlords are foreigners and the tenants are locals? Would there be a day when signs are put up saying no Singaporeans and dogs are allowed?

Reverse emigration can become an ugly reality if we are not careful. Or are we there already? Without thinking, having more foreigners here seems so fun and so good for the economy. The world seems to be able to live with the reverse emigration in the USA, Australia and New Zealand. Some of the uncaring elite also share the view that it is better as the new migrants are much more talented and have led these countries to greater heights and better quality of life and development. Sounds very familiar to our meritocracy when talents are welcome and non talent locals are encouraged to go to Bintan, Batam and JB.

When would the seriousness of reverse emigration really hit the daft Sinkies for them to feel the pain? Unfortunately the day they felt it, it would be too late. When that day comes, Sinkies will find themselves in another country without physically migrating or moving. The foreigners moved in and became the majority. The complacent Sinkies got emigrated by staying put.

For your info. It's already happening in certain pockets of Sg if you really look around. Did u read about the recent condo in Simei known as Melville Park just before the PIE. It was reported that nearly the whole condo occupied by IT professions working nearby ie Chsngi business park. We know lots of Indians working there. Some of them live at the East Coast area.
What abt the all time favourite of Beach Rd mini Thai, Joo Chiat Vietnam, Pennysula Burmese, Orchard Lucky Plaza for Fillipinos etc. it seems that we are squeeze out. Try going to those places I just mentioned and u become the minority!
The local indigenous population is abt 3.26 million. PRs abt 0.53 million followed by FTs abt 1.39 million. If u combine the PRs and FTs, it's about 2 million against the locals of 3.26 million. It means that every 3.5 people here one is a foreigner. Two thirds are foreigners. Shocking? The govt still insist on having more. Not enug they say. So I leave it to you to ponder over it.
Really langgar!

Reverse emigration? Eh, in your dreams lah. It will only happen when the sun rise from the west or the elites are given the boot.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Don't be silly redbean. It is nowhere near "saturation". Can go some more -- 9 million and beyond.

Also, you forget, most cuntrees are populated by immigrants.

All of human kind came out of Africa 100,000 to 200,000 years ago.

Really, you are punching at shadows. The only "policy" is to have NO POLICY and see what arises from the spontaneous order.

And yes, some of the dead-shit dead-weight from the local herd needs to be thinned...hopeless bums that they are!

look around you see lot of places for rent or lease.you know hard times are coming.as world trade slow down singapore will be affected badly.

the so call new citizen and ft will leave when they are out of job or have their salary cut badly. it is tough living in this expensive city without a decent salary.

the housing bubble here will pop as ft and foreigner leave.
there will be a need to bailout our local bank as the housing loan go sour.

year 2012 may be the start of the real world recession.printing ton of money can only help so much without solving the real problem.

read zerohedge.com ,maxkeiser.com.
these websites give a better view on what is happening to the world economy.

Matilah, you have given up your birthright to your country, so you can say whatever to doom this country.

Many Sinkies still treasure this place as home and will fight and defend it for themselves and their children. Why would they share their home with people who would not even want to do NS?

Why would they care about new citizens who are waiting to sell their HDB flats, make a good pile and jump ship?

Matilah_Singapura said...

redbean, I will never give up my birthright lah. And of course I will fight -- I own property in Singapore, it is in my interest to wallop any hostile interloper.

NS is rubbish -- waste of time and tax payer funds. It had a purpose long ago. The world is now changed -- time for a 100% well-trained professional military force.

It's good that the new citizens don't have to do NS. If NS is slavery for the locals, then it is slavery for anyone else. If one group does not have to do, that is one group less of slaves. I think your moral compass is fucked.

Anyway, most of the foreign settlers are far more productive and contribute more to the commonwealth of the nation than the lazy good-for-nothing locals.

Just like the lazy Bhumiputra's in neighbouring cuntrees, the local-born Singaporean "bumi" (asshole) thinks he has "special rights" just because his mother's chow chee bye happened to be in Singapore jurisdiction during birth.

CCB Mati. Don't insult we Sinkies. We work doubly triply hard to be better and cheaper. Look at how many As our students scored and how their parents put them through all the best schools and tuitions.

A C grade students here will top the class in Ausland and get first class honours too. We work damn hard to be good.

Fuck you and your bullshit.

Singaporeans -- previous generations -- used to work hard.

Now they are a bunch of lazy shits always putting their hands out like beggars for "help".

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Matilah, don't talk nonsense can? Our time, one year on straight A student very lucky already. The whole cohort of O level may got one with 8 A1 and a handful with 5 or 6 A1s and then mostly lucky to have 2 or 3 As.

Today you have hundreds of them with at least 6 or 7 As.

And most sinkies are asking for the return of their own savings in the CPF, not charity. Look at all the oldies cleaning tables and washing plates in the hawker centre and food courts, not asking for charity.

Fat hope to ask for charity. You want to eat in hawker centre, foodcourt or restaurant?

The charities were money from the poor people so that some can get paid in the millions.

Matilah_Singapura said...

redbean, how many times have I told you...no one has any "right" to their CPF, simply because it is a TAX.

They have no "property right" in CPF, and the way CPF is applied and administered is 100% lawful.

Move on lah. Stop being cry babies!

Err, before you scold me, you'd better take issue with Lee Kuan Yew ok, you big fraud redbean.

I just happen to agree with him when he says that Singaporeans need "competition" to wake them the fuck up.
