joker97: Singapore is ruled by a rational dictator (? Group).
If they want to take your land to build a road across it, you have no choice but to sell at whatever they (govt) say they'll pay you.
If they say the economy is bad they will apply a pay cut across the board and you will follow.
If they say something, you do it.
If you challenge the govt, they find a way to bankrupt you by digging your dirt and applying some law (or by suing you and winning an exorbitant pay out).
And lastly the minimum time to call an election is 14 days. They will suddenly dissolve parliament and announce an election in 14 days. Yes that's two weeks not 14 working days.
And? Your point is?
In exchange you get a lawful community, where you are pretty safe no matter where you go, at whatever time of the day or night. They have few drug issues, high levels of education and a world-class public transport system.
