Not free!

Read mr brown’s blog and according to Freedomhouse.org, Singapore is ranked 150 in the Global Press Freedom table.

Even places like Pakistan is ranked higher than Singapore!

I don’t think the Freedom of Information Act is going to be very popular in Singapore. In fact, I don’t think it will ever be introduced in Singapore.

It’s probably for the best that Singapore controls the press when you’ve got people saying things like this here.

For example,

“If you want to dance on a bar top, some of us will fall off the bar top. Some people will die as a result of liberalising bar top dancing… a young girl with a short skirt dancing on it may attract some insults from some other men, the boyfriend will start fighting and some people will die.” – Vivian Balakrishnan, (then) Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports

“It’s not for the money because some of the companies pay me as little as $10,000 a year.” – PAP MP Wang Kai Yuen who holds 11 directorships.

“We started off with (the name) and after looking at everything, the name that really tugged at the heartstrings was in front of us. The name itself is not new, but what has been used informally so far has endeared itself to all parties.” – PAP MP Mah Bow Tan on the $400,000 exercise to rename Marina Bay as Marina Bay.

Well, at least we scored better than North Korea! :-/
