Lets be equal!!!

February 13, 2013

The Perth metropolitan area is home to almost enough Singaporeans to form a constituency. Eight times the size of Singapore island, there are more than 10,000 Singaporeans here within the population of 1.3 million, a third of the total 33,590 in Australia. The actual number of Singaporeans [in Perth] is probably double the official figure, because the latter reflects only those who have successfully applied for permanent residency. It has the nickname, ‘Singaperth’. To compare, only 5,000 Australians lives in Singapore.

According to the G Population White Paper 2013: ‘A Sustainable Population for a Dynamic Singapore, there are about 200,000 Singaporeans living overseas’.

Why should these 34,000 Singaporeans living in Australia have the same rights and benefits as the local citizens while the 5,000 Ozzies living in Singapore are getting heavily discriminated and have to pay extremely high fees for medical care and schooling!!!

THIS IS BLOODY UNFAIR AND WE DEMAND THAT FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS START TO TREAT SINGAPOREANS IN THEIR COUNTRIES THE SAME AS SINGAPOREANS TREAT THEIR CITIZENS IN SINGAPORE!!! 

Let them all pay also S$500,- school fees for public schools, no right on subsidies, no right to buy an cheap property and have much higher medical fees. Let them rent the properties for Singaporean prices and see how long it takes before they come back to Singapore or change their passports.
