    Another xenophobic chest-beating nationalist piece.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of nationalist and "patriotic" people out there. For what it's worth, there are a lot of nationalist and "patriotic" people here too, who cry out loud too when foreigners buy local companies or property.

    They just don't understand business.

    And i can't believe it, they actually used "it" as a pronoun for singapore rather than the typical "she".

    Don't think all in Australia are thinking this way just from reading this article.......

    Australia is the one that is being looked at as a little America in Asia :-)

    Well, I don't see THEM complaining when some Middle Eastern nation pumps some moola in and ozzies whacking those Middle Eastern countries for being 'Backward, Draconian, etc that metes out backward punishment like whipping to thieves, etc'?

    Oh well. Guess they can say whatever they want. I'm not really bothered by it.

    As a humble citizen of Australia, I welcome Singapore as our economic overlord.

    A country that owns so much of Australian commercial assets should be given a seat in the government.

    Sydney rail service is a disgrace plagued with breakdowns, maintainence shoddiness and union problems. Let Tamasek Holdings buy it and turn it into a miracle.

    Majulah Singatralia!

    I also welcome Singapore as our overlord (if it means my favourite mamak dishes will thereby cost less than AUD$9 a plate).

    Australia allows dual citizenship e.g. Hong Kong/Australia, Greece/Australia etc. etc.

    Not too sure about Singapore.

    The world citizen with multiple passorts will be born.

    The only problem is to decide which one to use entering a check-point.

    Everybody here thinks it is such a great idea, that Singaporean companies, essentially Singapore Government, investing in businesses all over the world. But if the tide were turned, how will you react? You should welcome the foreign investment, right? Regulations should be ammended to make foreign investment easier, right? I wonder.
