Malaysia lost 40,600 citizens to Singapore

According to Hishamuddin, Malaysia lost 47,769 citizens due to emigration between 2002 to 2012. Of these, 40,624 ended as Singaporeans. In the same period Malaysia received 74,092 applications to be PRs. Thus Malaysia will have a net gain, so nothing to worry about.

This is quite similar to the Singapore situation. Though more Singaporeans are migrating, to cash out or because of their children’s education, many many more foreign talents are queuing up to replace them. Singapore will end up as the net gainer with more talented foreigners coming in to replace the lesser talented Sinkies that left. Singapore must be very happy with this state of affair, a very fair exchange in its favour.

Think Malaysia too will be gaining more foreign talents to replace their unhappy and not so talented citizens that have chosen to move out since they could not make it there. It is a win win situation really. The two countries got to get rid of the people they did not want and got in return talents that they want. And those who left are happier and those who came are even happier.

The irony is that those unhappy
"talents" are able to leave their country happily but those who are
not "talents" would have to remain as "slaves" and worked their whole life as worker ants to the Queen colony. They are kept too busy struggling for a living just like a swimmer couldn't stopped swimming in an ocean but gasping once a while out of the water for a breadther. These are the unfortunate lots who have no time to ponder or fight for their rights in their own country.

Good observation Jenny. Two developments could be the game changer. One, the new media has taken over the role to keep the people informed instead of relying only on the main media and its objective and unbiased reports that told the people everything is just fine.

The second development is that more and more professionals and able people are standing up to provide the leadership to show the way, to offer an alternative leadership.

Oh, a third point. The existing leadership is doing all the necessary to pave their way out.

I don't know what the fuss is all about. Humans are a nomadic species -- ever since our ancestors left East Africa 100,000 or so years ago. We have the capacity to choose where we want to live -- especially in our increasingly modernising world.

So what's the problem? Borders are only imaginary lines on a map anyway.

Really, people can choose where they want to live? So naive.

The fact that some people can be accepted into Australia or some favoured to live in Malaysia and some not favoured should shake out the cobwebs in between your ears.

Malaysia has replaced the 40,000 who came to Singapore by Rohingas and Indonesians, all very talented people, to boost its economic development.

hey asshole,

Those people still have to "move" by their own choice. They are not forced -- although they maybe "incentivised".

I'm 100% in favour of attracting people to boost economic development.

No economy, no civilization.

Got profit?

You no need to move people to have a cilivisation or an economy lah.

The people need to move to better their lives. That is what Matilah_Singapura meant. He is the wise one.
Stupid fucks stay and get screwed.
