No calls to fence up communal areas so the public can have exclusive access there.

Communal areas in Clark Quay such as the water fountain and pedestrian walkways should be fenced off to make sure “the old and young can get to use the space meant for them”, said no PAP MP ever.

None of the remaining 82 PAP MPs in Parliament said crowds in the Clark Quay area have returned to levels before the Dec. 8, 2013 riot in Little India, and residents around the waterfront must be protected from “the disamenities that can arise from large gatherings”.

All PAP MPs, however, tacitly acknowledged the contributions of these foreign workers in Clark Quay, but not one of them openly said: “Congregations of such high density are walking time-bombs and public disorder incidents waiting to happen.”

And no MPs from the ruling party called for more recreation centres for foreign workers to be built outside Clark Quay.

Singaporeans from all walks of life in varying states of undress are cowering in fear.

This after it was announced that the Singapore police has been given the go-ahead to strip search any person suspected of carrying alcohol within the vicinity of Little India.

One frightened Singaporean, Jin Kia See, said: “Later what if got exhibitionists purposely hide a bottle of alcohol in their backside and taunt the police to strip search him?”

“Then wouldn’t Little India attract all the exhibitionists who want other people to see them never wear clothes?”

Other locals interviewed said there are other reasons why it is untenable to strip search people these days.

Boh Cheng Sah, a local, said: “What if they strip already they aroused, how?”

“Then wouldn’t there be sexual corruption?”

Singaporeans from all walks of life with varying levels of alcohol tolerance are applauding the latest efforts to restrict the sale of alcohol in Little India in the aftermath of the Dec. 8 riot that occurred there.

They are in celebratory mood as they saw New Year’s Day pictures circulated online showing a passed out guy lying in the Bugis MRT station, which is not exactly nearby to Little India.

Lim Kah Tor, a local said: “This is proof that the alcohol restriction in Little India is effective. Now people get drunk in Bugis and elsewhere only.”

Other Singaporeans also said the the authorities deserve credit for implementing the alcohol sale curbs in specific areas, with the aim of targeting only certain communities.

Gan Xie Ni, another Singaporean said: “I would like to thank the authorities for their effective rules and policies. There is nothing racist or discriminatory about it. As long as nothing disorderly happens in Little India, everything is considered okay.”

“The authorities also make very precise rules to tackle very precise problems. If this causes other problems, then they will come up with more precise rules to tackle those problems. It’s great.”

“I am worried I will run out of money before I run out of places to drink publicly.”
