The Straits Times needs to buck up.


Singaporeans are upset with their national press The Straits Times.

This after the Malaysian press boasted about beating Singapore to being number one in English proficiency in Asia.

Malaysia reported that they are currently in 11th position, while Singapore is languishing at 12th position.

Pointing a finger at ST, a Singaporean, Buay Hiao Bai said: “What is wrong with ST these days? Want to be a free press cannot, want to be a propaganda press also lose to Malaysia?”

“The last thing I can stand is for Singapore to lose to Malaysia in terms of propaganda.”

Other Singaporeans interviewed said Singapore better not take this issue lying down.

Malai Tongpau, a Singaporean said: “Tomorrow we better read a report in Straits Times saying Singapore beat Malaysia in Bahasa Melayu.”
