He explained that the real problem with Singapore is not that there are too many degree holders, but more that people only see getting a degree as a way to get a good job.

The local fishermen attributed the death to the reclamation work and specifically said that it should never be allowed to restart ever again, or all the fishes will die or worse still carry some disease that will be passed to our children who eat the fish. For Singapore, such a serious health risk is unacceptable and it is high time that someone from our government should stand up for not only the fishermen, but for a Singapore. We do not want our children to consume poisoned fishes! It is believed that the chemicals and toxic wastes may have been used in the Johor land refills. Unscrupulous contractors will normally use wastes to supplement the sand refills so as to help reduce costs of projects. What this means is that buried under the reclamation sand could be toxic wastes dumped by these unscrupulous contractors.
