I was walking by a mall one fine day, and was approached by a young male adult. I’m sure many people have encountered what I am about to describe next. He started to ask for donations and walked along side my friend and I. I declined waving my hand in his direction saying “no” but he continued to follow in the direction I was going, gesturing towards the clipboard in his hand and saying something about donations.

A friend of mine (who is largely politically-neutral) shared this story: A PAP MP went on a walkabout at his block and they had a chat over what was residents' concerns. As a result, my friend expressed concerns over the influx of immigration. Now, this friend is someone who has good foreigner friends since 15 but He told the PAP MP what made him change his attitude towards foreigners is the fact that he had to serve NS and wasn't given a scholarship at NUS even though some of his less competent forefinger peers were on scholarship.
The Central Government was today urged to take consitutional measures to exclude Singapore from Malaysia or to "put Mr Lee Kuan Yew away to sober him up." The call came from the Alliance whip in the Senate, Dato T.H. Tan, who said,"Either of these measures will ensure peace and harmony in our country. No one who has gone berserk should be let loose." The Senate was debating a motion to thank the king for his speech from the Throne when he opened the present session of Parliament. During the debate, all sections of the House took Mr Lee to task for talking about a Malaysian Malaysia and convening the Malaysian Solidarity Convention. Dato T.H. Tan thought that Mr Lee should be told on no uncertain terms that Malaysia could do without Singapore.

The Sultan of Brunei (pic) announced that a controversial new penal code featuring tough Islamic criminal punishments, that has been criticised by UN human rights officials, would be phased in from Thursday.

Shariah-law penalties will be introduced over time and will eventually include flogging, severing of limbs and death by stoning for various crimes.
Dr Parag Khanna’s vision of broadening national service roles beyond the armed forces is overly idealistic (“National service for the 21st century”; last Saturday). The primary purpose of NS is national defence. We need a strong military to protect ourselves if war breaks out. We do not need “structural engineers… developing skills for a lucrative industry Singapore can export” in those times; we need men in uniform who can take up arms.
