This is strictly Singapore's business and internal affairs, they have no right to interfere and moreover so burn the effigies of out leaders. this is being disrespectful

If it is our own people who do so it is a different story
Why ? This shows that HK people's balls are bigger then Singaporeans. Hats off to the HK people

Why have protesting over something that is not your business balls ?

Explain to me what has the issue got to do with Hong Kongers before telling me they have balls.

This is not equivalent to guts/balls. This is plain disrespect.

There are more civil ways to show your displeasure/thoughts etc

the Hongkongers are engaging in this kinds of behaviour in Hong Kong precisely because Hong Kong allows such kind of behaviour.

There is nothing right or wrong about it. Hong Kong has its own law, just as Singapore does. Just as I expect foreigners to understand that drugs are simply not acceptable in Singapore and caning is part of Singapore's judicial punishment system, I accept and understand that Hong Kong's legal system allows such behaviour.

I may disagree with their actions, but I have to understand and accept that Hong Kong's legal system allows things to be done differently.

It shows that Hong Kong people enjoys much more political rights than Singaporeans and behave similar to westerners with freedom of expression.

It is pretty sure many westerners in the USA, Canada, Europe and Australia will protest too if the incident is a headline in western countries. Many Westerner protestors are much more nosier.

That's what dictatorships do. They always get pissed off when someone else criticizes them. A democracy can deal with that.
Something to think about.

Another zombie from Singapore...Do you need to show respect to a dictatorship ? How much do you know about Singapore in the first place ? Respect is something you have to earn , not by terrorizing ordinary citizen.
