A promotional video commissioned by STB, created in the Philippines by the Philippine network ABS-CBN and must have been approved by the STB for circulation, says it all. It is all about reversed integration. We are getting to think and see things the Pinoy way. We have confidence in what they do, pay them to do it, agree and happy with the production. And we fly it to the whole world proudly as a class act. Must be right?

ESM Goh has recently called for the review of Singapore’s social policies, saying that this should be done in the hopes of creating a “fair and equitable Singapore”. One cannot help but wonder if this PAP man means what he says, given that our PM has admitted that he would take in 10 more billionaires even though it would increase social inequality if he could because of the opportunities they bring.
