Personally I have been away from UK that long, 42 years, that I cannot relate to any home at all, though my own Country which I served and fought for gave me nothing but a bloody headache, Denmark gave me the opportunities and educated me, and I hope to pay back in expanding trade relations eventually between Singapore & Denmark. I would serve my duty in both Countries too, if i had too, but i would never be a prisoner of any welfare system and that is the gospel truth. I'm independent self sufficient, loyal and non political. I dislike Banks, Insurance companies and all cash cows, that are forced upon us
ERP comes to mind
My heart is with Singapore, I believe in one party only as too many cooks spoil the broth! I have seen this Country develop since the time i was stationed here in 1970.
Give up my British passport no way I can't do that, no way any country will blackmail me into losing my identity and it should never be expected by any government for first generation immigrants, that would be naive.
Though I don't mind going into dads army, I've got all the qualifications to bend a few ears!
The Chinese say that we are like trees', the seed is planted and we grow, branch out and blossom, then fall to our roots. Part of the Singaporean puzzle is there to read in those few sentences. Bonding to a Country doesn't come with first generation, very rarely do they integrate fully..
Integration is very rarely completed for any race, in any Country only a few first generation really make an effort, having seen it with refugees, I talk with experience of the problems.
I get on great with all races here and in other Countries too because my outlook on life is free thinking, and respect for all.
