Singaporeans from all walks of life with varying literacy levels are not surprised that the national newspaper, The Straits Times, is partly communist.

This after the only English broadsheet was described as “China-backed” by the Mirror, a UK tabloid.

One Singaporean, Tak Sin Boon said: “I feel quite flattered that Singapore is receiving this kind of recognition on the international stage.”

“I, myself, thoroughly enjoy reading all the nation-building articles that have been approved by Yaacob Ibrahim.”

“But if we overdo it, we might just steal China’s thunder and we’ll end up more communist than them. And then we might not be China-backed from then on.”
