The Gahmen's Pee Pee In The Wall

Now that the internet media has started to blossom, more and more people are getting familiar in finding ways around Singapore's draconian censorship barriers to have their voices heard. With people also getting more and more tech savvy, these voices are heard loud, crystal and clear.

No longer are we shackled down by state-controlled media and be misquoted by their lackeys, otherwise known as "journalists".

Websites of blogs, podcasts and videos are sprouting everywhere to speak up and to supposedly expose.

Problem is how credible are these sources?

This is karma payback for all the years of strong arm censorship that anything that "leaks" out is somewhat deemed to be regarded as the truth.

That, in all fairness, is a very dangerous thing to assume.

I stumbled onto the youtube by a certain user "Wendy Neo" which I doubt is even her real name or if that it's really a "she" as the name Wendy may suggest.

The above allegations in the clip are in no way representation of my beliefs nor do I refute it. I am neutral as I think everyone should draw their own conclusion.

Problem with these type of message bordering on the thin grey line of truth, half-truth and at the same time, untruth is that the slight advantage would always be in the author's side be it the truth, half-truth or untruth. 

But one thing is for sure. People are speaking up even if we can't do it via the traditional channels. There are new channels coming up every day.

The Gahmen today is playing the losing role of the Little Dutch Boy where he is faced with yet another leak in the dyke after having already stuck his nose, 10 fingers, 10 toes and his little pee pee in the wall already.  

So I say get rid of censorship already and let the information flow. Only then will the people be able to have all the necessary data, be it truths, half-truths and even untruths, to draw their own conclusion and make their own minds.

Stone-walling people will only push them further away from you and think that you are guilty and have something to hide.
Or perhaps you ARE guilty and HAVE something to hide?

Do you refute that? If yes, then lift the embargo and turn over all the cards!

Try as you might to plug every new hole that appears, it is a losing cat-and-mouse game and you know it.

So I say leave it be and at the very least you can stand up with dignity and not appear pathetic.
Unless of course, you ARE guilty and Have something to hide.

You tell me because I really don't know.

Afternote: No wonder this "Wendy Neo" sounded so familiar. As it turned out, I featured here on my previous blog entry: JayWalk (10 Feb 2010) - Vote Out PAP? I Don't Think So.

YES! I'll vote for any party that will stand up against uber liberal foreigner labour policy.

Do you know that even if a PR is convicted of a criminal offence and sentenced to imprisonment, he MAY be deemed as a prohibited immigrant under Immigration Act, Chapter 133. The Controller MAY revote his status under Section 14(4) of the same act. Such consideration is given on a case-by-case basis.

See! PRs may or may not be thrown out after committing a crime in Singapore. What kind of foreign trash is FAP admitting under the current policies???

FAP Opponent: Welcome to the blog. My response to your comment is rather lengthy that I have decided to make it a regular post in itself.
