What works on a local level can be extended to a national level.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have had it up to here because enough is enough, is calling on the government to put up railings all over the island to stop foreigners from treating the country like a playground for fun and games only.

This after Singaporeans read that the Tanjong Pagar Town Council had put up several 3.5-metre railings at the void deck of a Queensway flat as a deterrence to prevent residents there from playing ball games and treating the place like it is meant for fun and games.

One Singaporean, Wai Guo Ren, said the town council has found the perfect solution for a local problem that can be extended to a national level: “Since railings can be put up to deter kids from having fun, the same concept can be extended nation-wide to target foreigners who use Singapore as a place merely for fun and games.”

“Railings must be put up all over Singapore to deter foreigners who use this country as some kind of stomping ground, only to leave once they had their fun.”

“This will prevent locals from absorbing the social problems and dealing with a society afflicted by a deep cultural malaise left behind by outsiders.”

At press time, railings are being erected along Holland Village, River Valley and Sentosa Cove areas.
