UPDATE 20120727: Connecting the dots?

We are saddened to learn the dramatic event happening to Assoc. Prof. Tey, where he’s been charged in court for six counts of corruption. Knowing the state of affair in Singapore, we had considered removing this blog for our own sake. But we have eventually to keep it going, for all it’s doing is to present the ideas and views of Prof. Tey, in good faith, as Prof. Tey has stated in his own statement.

We also received quite a few comments. One of them suggested this site allows people to “connect the dots”. We leave such idea to the readers themselves; that’s not the purpose of this blog. Read with an open mind and make your own conclusion and judgement.

And thank you to those who have expressed concern for us.

In this blog, we collect a number of articles written by Assoc. Prof. Tey Tsun Hang of National University of Singapore. Although these are scholarly written academic papers, the incisive viewpoints on and analysis of Singapore’s politics and law make the articles such refreshing read for Singaporeans. Anyone with a slight appreciation of the Singapore context and its political circumstances would agree that these should be considered a gem. These articles suggest a phenomenon uniquely Singapore. We call it The Singapore Consensus.

Thank you for visiting.

    Reply: thank you for your concern. We only hope more Singaporeans will get to read the ideas and views behind the writings of Prof. Tey.

    unless you are new, there is nothing to fear. or put it differently, fear is part of this business and face it.

    still, KEEP IT UP!

    What is there to watch out, illusionary fear or thats what they want us to create a fear of unknown fear. No need. Needless to be a voluntary co-actor of their staged democratic drama. If we have this kind of unhealthy, stupid fear, they have won.
    To sillypore: you are either part of them without you intently knowing, or they have successfully made you to be one to have a part-play so as that you can be their extended chanel of fear distribution.
    To these folks – keep it up, be steadfast, as long as you work smart to beat them in their game, intelligently knowing that you need not be a hero against all odds as thier machinery is not one to be taken lightly, lets be level headed and acknowledge that.

    It is about time the world is informed of the ways in which the PAP has hijacked the judiciary. It is also fitting that a non Singaporean should write about this. The local lawyers have too much to lose. LKY has got them by the b—s. What is happening is nothing to LKY. He has done worse, like staining his hands with b****.

    Very good collection of Prof Tey’s articles. Thanks for sharing.

    What about also collecting the articles written by Professor Hor Yew Meng, Michael (http://law.nus.edu.sg/about_us/faculty/staff/publist.asp?UserID=lawhorym )? I found one of his articles, “Singapore’s Innovations to Due Process” ( http://www.isrcl.org/Papers/Hor.pdf ) to be very good.

    Bought a copy of “Legal Consensus”. It’s not too hard to read for a layperson and gives an interesting view of Singapore’s history.
