It is time somebody from the Cabinet took a position on Anton Casey, the guy who is being bashed online for his Facebook post on smelly MRT commuters. Law and Foreign Minister K Shanmugam did not mince his words when he wrote in his Facebook: “Like many Singaporeans, I am terribly upset and offended by what he has posted. Seeply offensive, wrong and unacceptable.
“Having money and a Porsche does not automatically mean that one is superior. Character is important.
“He has attempted to apologise to Singaporeans. But some feel that the manner of his apology showed a lack of sincerity. And I think there is some basis for thinking that.”
Well said, Shanmugam.
