The competition that Sinkies don’t need
Why is there a need to bring in rich foreigners to compete with Sinkies to buy and speculate on properties that are a must help for Sinkies as their basic needs, a roof over their heads?
Why is there a need to bring second rated foreigners to become citizens to buy public housing, to compete with Sinkies and to jack up the prices for poorer Sinkies.
Why is there a need to bring in more foreigners to compete with Sinkies for COEs to drive on the road?
Why is there a need to bring hungry foreigners to compete with Sinkies for jobs and push some Sinkies out of jobs?
Why is there a need to bring in foreigners at middle and top management level to compete with Sinkies and deprive Sinkies of the chances for these jobs?
Why is there a need to pay foreigners to take up university places while children of Sinkies have to pay through their own pockets by going overseas.
Would the country be worst off without these competitions by being more discriminatory and give Singaporeans the first right of refusal instead of forcing them to compete with foreigners often on unequal and unfavourable terms? Why bring in cheap foreigners and dismiss Sinkies as not competitive when the playing field is not level?
Is there a need to screw ourself with this kind of self willing, self invited competition, forcing our Sinkies to lower their expectations and go for less when the national goal is to make life better for Sinkies?
Is this not a self inflicted wound. This is a competition that Sinkies don't need and did not ask for.
