I wish Singaporeans would rally behind the Government instead of criticising them re our recent issues with China.
Partisanship is for domestic politics. On the international stage, we must all be loyal Singaporeans.
And on this note, I also urge my fellow business people who do a lot of business in China to stop getting intimidated into lobbying the Government to appease the PRC. This is precisely what they are trying to do.
Yes our businesses and wallets are important, but our country is more important.
Be strong. Chins up. Have some pride. If we become doormats, nobody will respect us even as business people, and nobody does business with doormats.
