Considering the language these people opposing it used, calling the Filipinos trash.etc, how else would you expect him to respond to them? Say, 'oh for sure, kick out those poor brown trash!'

Yeah I doubt he has a personal problem with it, and he was being diplomatic.

The SIngapore police , but sadly which will
not override the PM.

I love how one fellow Singaporean have applied for permit to hold a rally at the same time same venue..

And saddened to see how my fellow Singaporean application will be rejected for the benefit of foreigners

A rally for what, exactly? Why raise a separate issue and marr the event? If they want to protest how they're being screwed over by the PAP, choose another time. They're doing it to cause trouble.

Why do we need to choose another timing ? For the sake of the fillipinos ? This is a good opportunity ..

Of course the perfect timing is 2015/2016, we are all just waiting for that moment

It is not about the duration , it is a matter of respecting the feelings of the the owners ..

Other countries may not mind it is their own business.. But if some of us do our feelings should not be neglected

Wait so where exactly is the event to be held? Is it also a parade on the street? What exactly is the programme?

If it's private property, then shouldn't it be up to the owners to give permission too?

The point of choosing that time was to cause conflict and possibly heckle people participating in the parade. Who knows, it could get ugly? Are we going to start to see angry Singaporeans targeting Filipinos and other foreigners now?

Usually it is only a gathering with foods and a short program ( dance, sing ), also some parlour games.. That's all. It is not like the 4th July celebration that has parade and fire works.
