Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, shut up if you do not intend to solve the FT problem

Dr Vivian Balakrishnan: I am very ‘disappointed’ with tone of anti-foreigner feelings on Facebook

Despite rising concerns and frustrations among Singaporeans that they have been ‘short-changed’ by the government’s ultra-liberal immigration and pro-foreigner policies, PAP leaders continue to turn a blind eye to the problem and blame Singaporeans for being ‘anti-foreigner’ and ‘xenophobic’ instead.
Speaking at a dialogue during the Sinda Youth Leaders Seminar yesterday, Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Dr Vivian Balakrishnan expressed ‘disappointment’ at the ‘anti-foreigner’ sentiments prevalent on the internet and urged youth leaders to stand up against such tirades.
‘We need to keep Singapore open and I am very disappointed with the tone of anti-foreigner feelings that I was reading on Facebook,’ he said.
Dr Vivian then repeated the centuries old PAP ‘mantra’ that Singapore ‘succeeded’ because it is OPEN to foreigners:
‘We should never forget how we got here and succeeded because we are an open society and took in talented people, and so we flourished. We need some of you to stand up for us and say this,’ he urged.
PAP leaders have often reminded Singaporeans that they are also descendants of immigrants to force their unpopular immigration policies down their throats. However, the first-generation immigrants came to Singapore to build their homes while the present wave of immigrants are mostly there to take advantage of the benefits made readily available to them.
Meanwhile, anti-foreigner sentiments continue to run high on social media with a Facebook page set up recently calling for Pinoy PMETs to be ejected from Singapore.

UNQUOTE:
Woalan, he cannot see the different between those early migrants before Singapore independent and those foreign migrants today.
Our earlier migrants came to build Singapore from a small fishing port to a First World Country. They worked so hard, they sweat and they bleed. They contributed to Singapore success and built a huge Reserves and now, they are forgotten and left behind as 2nd class citizens.
Today, Foreign migrants are taking over Singaporeans jobs and they enjoy the benefits of what those early Singaporeans had built over the years.
Hello Vivian, can you see the difference now?
