It's too politically sensitive to discuss here. :)
It is about refugees mass migration to EU countries...Germany has welcomed them with open arm... how about the rest?

Are they prepared to forego the principle of Human Right or let the countries absorb the flood!

Like I said in another thread, EU will never recover with this influx of refugees. Can't even feed themselves and they r welcoming FTs.

However, if they can learn from us, turning this FTs into cheap labour and give them those jobs that locals shun, then its a different story. :)

We are not a welfare state and we will never be. Charity come from home.
We have many thinWhgs to do. The question is how much is one prepared to take those refugees. Cheap illegal labour for Singapore? We will have to declare brankrupt if we take in those refugees. No amount of money can help them. Sorry if you were the government , what will u do? How much are u prepared to part your salary to help them. 10%,20%,30%,50%?
we will end up increasing tax. Agreed?

yes..agree 100%.your views are correct but the plain truth is that we are harbouring people/foreigners..just not rohingya because they're not form China or the Philippines.and what's wrong with being humane??spore could be an example to the world by giving a helping hand but we chose a blind eye because they will not provide economy or financial boosting for the government.and we don't have to take in all of them,just a few can still make the difference.helping some is better than helping none...doubt a few rohingyas will make us(the richest country in the world) go bankrupt,,little far fetched i would say.

Thunk its not just money problem, its also the social integration and dynamics to the general population. Racial proportion and all that.

Our govt is v objective. They look at a balanced perspective before making policies.

I agree with u wholeheartedly . We have no resources but we had accumalated some cash for raining days. We have to spend it wisely.
It is very real out there. You help them but who is going to help u when u r in trouble ? Do not depend on or expect others to help u.

This is one of the most intelligent and compassionate statements I've heard from a Singaporean. No point to aspire to be a first world nation if we can't display compassion and generosity to the refugees. The world is watching us for such a magnanimous gesture.

True. There's one stumbling block though. As a people, Singaporeans are generally compassionate and do think refugees should be helped. BUT (they also think), NOT of out my pocket. You hear it all the time -- government / rich people / MNCs got a lot of money what? Ask them go donate first!
Not just us of course, but we are a very 'pragmatic' people. That said, I do have hope for the younger generation :)

We are a relatively rich country. We can lend refugees a hand if we really want to. But potential economic and social problems aside, just look at our population density!!!! Where to put more ppl? Throw them at Mandai? Zzz

All Singaporeans should condition themselves that they are going to live in a more congested, crowded and noisier city.

All we need is to become more patient, tolerant and gracious. :)

Singapore to help? Maybe we should consider helping the pioneer generation first sad to see them collecting cardboard and clearing tablets in their final lap.
