The most interesting in this article is that you posted a link to it.

Absolutely no excuse. He should be raked over the coals.

But what I really want to know is how come you can post link to ST? :o

Special Dispensation? :wink:

Linking to a page should be fine as long as content is not copied.

Nevertheless, I changed the link to a more interesting site instead :cool:

I'm not proud to say this but I've read all the way through the comments in this link and looks like the PR company that Casey hired posted his apologies (or maybe it was himself).

I think, chances of him being demonstratively and publicly booted out of Singapore are high.

Not sure. The agitators at a certain site want to get him fired, at least. And possibly prosecuted under the sedition act, which covers class as well as race.

I think it's much ado about nothing again. Just some idiot posting stupid things on his face book.

He claimed that there is a security breach of his Facebook account and hence the bad remarks?

The security breach relates to pictures being download from his FB account and posted on various media sites

Just another 'useful idiot' gobbing off, but turned into a big-story as it distracts the people from more important 'matters of state'.

Call it 'tabloid-soma' if you like. And bang on cue, see all the frothing-at-the-mouth anti FT comments that it yields... 'bread and circuses' as they say*...

A little insensitive but the agitators are probably suffering from green eyes.
I think he'll learn his lesson.

Whats wrong with these Ang Mohs working in financial services? First there was this Barclays FX research analyst who went and abused construction workers and then another one who punched a taxi driver then this one. I guess wealth really gets to the head of some people.

The anti-FT xenophobes are also targeting his son (whom was mentioned to be of Down Syndrome). That's very low of them!
