It's hard to be unpopular but someone has to do it.

It's incredibly difficult to become so deeply deeply reviled overnight and with so little effort but someone has actually managed to accomplish this feat. What an amazing achievement. I've heard of high-fliers, over-achievers and overnight sensations but achieving this kind of publicity in such a short time is truly worthy of praise.

It's like she just reached inside and ripped our collective guts out, then waved it in our faces. See? These are your guts. See? Now I'm throwing them on the floor and stomping on them.

How do you keep a nation of citizens compliant and non-critical? How do you keep them on the side of the Government? BY KEEPING SHIT LIKE THIS OUT OF OUR FACES, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. It's easy to believe that our MPs really care about the common good if we don't hear otherwise. It's not so easy when some 18-year old kid starts parroting condescending nonsense like this. How about we just NOT have any news? Just insert more advertisements. Or just say "Sorry - what she said was wrong" - even if you don't mean it? Give us half a reason to continue to suspend our disbelief.

I'm happy to say that it's still a few more years yet before the next election. Given that I have enough to occupy my mind from now till then, I'll have had time to forget this sordid little incident as well as the fact that my God Damn electricity bill is higher now than it's ever been even though we use less airconditioning now than we ever have.

Ah. It's back up now. Thanks for dropping by!

It's a storm in a teacup, basically. Some 40-something guy wrote a post in his own blog talking about how he is worried about job security these days, what with all the foreign talent that Sing Govt is welcoming in.

Some RGS-GEP girl whose father is an MP wrote some rude and condescending remarks in response saying that if he can't take it then leave lor. Basically called him a loser.

Everyone who read her response (and his blog post) got pissed because his original post seemed quite reasonable. It's what we all worry about - job security in mid-career phase. She didn't need to be so rude (she even criticized his spelling). Plus she's only 18 and is from such a privileged background that it's quite clear she'll never have to worry about paying the bills or making ends meet. I think TWAT is a very apt description.

Then her father, uh, 'apologises' on her behalf, saying that he agrees with her point but she shouldn't have used such strong language because some people cannot take the truth in such strong language.

I'm no expert, but does that sound like an apology or does that sound like he's saying "She's right! And too bad yawl can't accept the truth!"
