Singapore in a Song: We live in Singapura


Some of the passages in the song require local knowledge to be appreciated. A little background: The video was recorded at the Singapore parliament. The artist Mr. Brown produced during the recent general elections the "persistently non political podcast" since the government would have required registration and a permit for any political podcast. Episode 6 was the most famous of them all mocking some election incidents: Political aspirant, Jeff Lopez, the Man and His Ideas*, goes for lunch. And finds himself embroiled in a controversy focuses the spotlight on his very integrity and credibility. This audio podcast does not contain "persistent political content" because that is prohibited during the election period under the Singapore's Election Advertising Regulations.
Remember, prison got no broadband!

"The Man and His Ideas" is a subtitle of a Lee Kuan Yew biography. LKY is Singapore's founding ?berfather.

    Loved it, but thank goodness for the subtitles as my Singlish is a bit rusty still.
