Riots in Tottenham and London

The country has gone crazy. There are looters going around shopping areas smashing windows and stealing. They are setting fire to cars and buildings. They shut down stratford today. This is where all of the Olympic buildings are. It is mostly young people now just causing trouble.

How it started? A man was shot by the police on Thursday in Tottenham. It has gone to the Independent Commission for investigation. They said he had a gun and shot at the police and then he got shot. Others say he didn't and it became a bit of a race issue. However, the riots started out of a peaceful demonstration by his family and friends outside of the police station because they weren't getting any answers. They weren't involved and have separated themselves from the violence. That is it. It just moved around London for no reason. They are blaming the economy/police/racism etc. But the bottom line is that large groups of youths are moving around rioting and doing all this!

Speech by Mr Inderjit Singh on Population White Paper

People's Action Party MP, Mr Inderjit Singh, debated on the Population White Paper and put up his point across that he is against his own party's 6.9m projected population. I applaud his courage to stand up against the party whip and for his fellow Singaporeans.

His key points are;

Slow down immigration and focus on resolving all issue related to the past population boom.We can live with a slightly slower growth (not zero or slow growth) and hence moderate dependence on foreigners.Use the Dubai model to complement our local workforce with foreign workforce, but don’t grant them PRs – ie a transient workforce.Abandon the 6.9m figure by 2030, this will be another rapid growth which we cannot handle.Solve Singaporeans problems first and also don’t give PRs same privileges as citizens.
As published on Mr Inderjit Singh's Facebook status, the full speech made in the parliament is as below:
