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.

“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.
