NoFearSingapore's blogger Dr Huang writes, in a sign of soccer addiction, that the MDA should fork out the $1 million to FIFA to bring us the World Cup 2010 telecasts. To me this is blatant profiteering by the soccer body. Why should be capitulate?
Meanwhile, ST's Chua Mui Hoong laments the paltry $50,000 Singapore government forwarded to Haiti's relief. So true. And so disgraceful.
I suggest as a national gesture, from both gahment and citizens, we vote to forgo the World Cup this year as a snub to FIFA, and instead divert that $1 million into an emergency humanitarian relief fund, with the first benefactor, the people of Haiti.
How about that?
