    1) Yesterday's closure was a mistake and after finding out, the officer who ordered it got blasted. Maybe they forgot that the order to close the bridge was only for NDP and not the fireworks. Hence mistake rectified and today they opened the bridge.

    2) Day 1 of performance, some of our beloved leaders were there to watch the performance with their families. To protect their safety, we made the wise decision to ban all possible security risk from the bridge.

    Just my humble opinons.
    3) Ministers read this thread and had a change of heart.

    4) The organisers realised it was a left over instruction from NDP.

    leave politics to the big guys. study well and score A for your O levels.
    humans are political animals. there is no right or wrong answer. you have your supporters and we have ours.

    politics is like that. suppression always exist. oppo is good to keep the main guys on their feet. there are leftists in all countries. this is natural. it is just that the left wing intellectuals are more or less suppressed in this country. this is life.

    the main guys here have once been the oppo before. now that they are in power, of course they want to keep the status quo.

    there are many versions of truth. what is true to you may not be true for others. your reality and world maybe different from others.

    this is just general talk. not specific to this land. so no infractions pls.

    Very well said. no doubt in life and in aywhere would be find both sides of a coin.
    or oppressors and stuff.
    however, i think it is not being fair to slander the country.
    for an example, " i cant believe it. i do not think its fair to chase us down like that without prior warnings and no apologies after doing so." .... do not point fingers and stuff, i find it childish and not that we are treated "second class" please!..thank the country for everything you have. i think we are all treated pretty well.
    of course, you can have your grudges, but perhaps more sensible ones? its is natural to treat our own countrymen better or those that contribute more. and mind you, i am in great disfavour of the "chinese foreign talents"...those kind of people also called talents..

    Lastly THANKS for getting me to score my As.. = ) just my 0.000000000002cents

    Just earlier on (on friday, 17th aug), there's the all so mighty Singapore Fireworks Festival, and like other poor guys here, i dont have the money to book a hotel room. Neither do i have any links with STB or the organizers. so naturally, i went up to Shears Bridge, since i guess that's the only place where i could get nice Singaporean Scenery + fireworks. (Marina East wont cut. i dont drive.)

    and so, left work at 5pm, reach that bridge at 6pm. found a good spot and enjoyed the nice breeze while waiting for the show to start.

    right at about 8.15pm, some Police officers showed up, and we were told to clear the place immediately! i was like wtf?!

    the show start at 9pm, and at 8.15pm, they appear and ask us to leave?! i mean, there was no advisory ANYWHERE, nor any signs nor any personal earlier on to warn us.

    man. i went early to camp and right at the last min, this sorta thing happened.

    now, i have that very strong impression that fireworks is only meant for the rich, expats, and of course, people who're very darn free to go esplanade bridge to camp. period

    I think they later realise that they had made a mistake.
