The Real Singapore (TRS) is a free online platform and a user-generated content site for all Singaporeans to express themselves freely and without any form of censorship.

We are an online portal which aims to provide quick updates and commentaries on Singapore’s socio-political affairs from a unique and interesting perspective. We are a non-partisan website which allows individuals to express their opinions on political issues and current affairs freely without any form of censorship. We are not funded by any political organizations or company, and our only source of revenue is through advertisement which is then used to cover our cost of webhosting and domain registration.

As an independent online platform, we will endeavor to provide space for columnists and reader comments from across the political spectrum to foster, facilitate and promote serious debate and discourse which is sorely lacking in Singapore.

Our editorial position is based on social justice, human rights, democracy, civil liberties, and governance centred around the principles of transparency, accountability and responsibility from which we endeavor to foster an informed, educated, critically thinking and proactive citizenry.

We hope that Singaporeans will come to recognize these values as the pillars of our nation’s foundation.
