Why are people steering the focus to xenophobia? What is the real issue here?
If there are only 10-20% foreigners in Singapore, will there be any xenophobic sentiments? No, of course not. Fundamentally, we Singaporeans are not like that.
With 40% and its variety of consequences for Singaporeans, of course there are frustrations vent out in all directions and in all manners.
Isn't the real issue the aggressive population growth due to the disproportionately high number of foreigners in this little island: xenophobia being but one of its effect. Don't make xenophobia the main issue here for it is not.
So all those expert voices, if you want to talk so much, please talk about the actual issue.
