    The solution is near: offshore them.

    But I guess nobody is willing to fork out so much money to prepare an island for foreign workers, it would finally increase the costs of labour.

    WP's call. [ learning fast, ya? speak with more finesse now ya? ]

    "The Workers' Party (WP) on Monday urged the public to refrain from speculating and making unnecessary accusations as the police investigates the Little India riot.

    In a statement on its website, the WP added that the Committee of Inquiry that Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is convening should study the riot's underlying causes, so that the Government can address them and prevent such an incident from happening again.

    "The Workers' Party wishes a speedy recovery to the Home Team officers and other victims who were injured during the riot in Little India...and we extend our condolences to the family of the deceased traffic accident victim, Mr Sakthivel Kumaravelu," said Mr Gerald Giam, the chair of the WP's media team and Non-constituency MP,

    "We believe that the police will carry out a thorough investigation to apprehend those responsible for the riot to face the law."

    After they lose their pants they will have to go back being construction workers. In the meantime, the Chinese will do the work.
    I once worked in a company which had abt 300 foreign workers. One of them got heart attack and passed away.

    During his funeral, abt 90% of the workers did not turn up for work!

    Can you imagine 270 workers were absent!

    Actually, horrific scene of the riot itself shocked me more than the rumors. LOL

    They said that police officers "displayed maximum restraint and did not fire any weapon throughout the incident".
    I think the police force are also ardent followers of Laozi and Master Sion.

    The wisdom of Master Sion spread far and wide.
    He should also be appointed to the Committee of Inquiry.

    All we need is a prominent brass statue of Laozi at the entrance to Little India to instill harmony and peace and sobriety to the community.

    I'm sure Tiger Beer will be willing to contribute.

    Doubt so. Spartans have extremely high criteria in selecting which baby to survive.
