    Nevermind if lose just send them back as we do to sports players and PUT IN BOLD that they are foreign imports hence losing is not because Singaporeans are lousy but because foreign imports never work hard. If they win however, proudly say they are Singaporeans by name who have adopted our country as their new motherland and have done it proud. Either way win win situation with foreign imports!

    Leejay got it right. In debating competitions, research is important, but not the key. It's how you convince others, not how much you know, that will bring the trophy home. In another words, creativity will generally carry the day.
    This is what popped into my mind, I sense a few sore losers. Well played UWC!

    Must you guys here always think in money? This is what kills the research and art environment here............there are things in life that can't be, measured in money

    What an evil way of thinking, only like to win on others back isn't it?........and just throw away if it doesn't work out?

    looks like this thread is going to turn into trashing FT again......

    Instead of working harder to be better, people here tend to complain only. Yes, they lost, but that is the push one needs to improve, if you just keep on complaining and try to think of ways out, then you will never improve.

    Or complain when the FT are not doing well, or are 'taking away' jobs from Singaporeans, maybe you should think why foreigners are hired instead of Singaporeans, and think what you could do to, perhaps people here have higher expectations on the pay, which is perhaps not so realistic anymore? Foreigners also have to pay rental etc.....

    Complaining doesn't solve anything......

    everyone complains once in a while, now and then, not just singaporeans, people all over the world do it. but over reliance on making causal complaints as a form of stress-relieving activity will decrease the will to translate words into action, encourage procrastination, and eventually reduce such activities into nothing more than mental masturbation.

    Complaining is more ilke mental ejaculation, after you shake out everything you feel good and relaxed.
    When tension build up, you repeat the whole process again.

    On the contrary, I would like to point out that we should be hiring FT for our elites instead.
    Our "elites" come from fame schools like RI, HC... etc.
    Whoever heard of one coming from a neighbourhood school?

    Our garmen should hunt talents from UWC from now on.

    The above has nothing to do with our low birthrates, right?

    Same old same old.

    Turns to FT thrashing. Turns to uni student thrashing (best part is, if you have children these days you'd probably want them to go to uni and that's what's happening. EVERYONE's going to uni hey!).

    =(

    And no one answers my question. =(
