CAN we believe the arrogance of these people in Singapore? The foreign minister is 'shocked' at the burning of the Singaporean flag in the Philippines, and demands that the perpetrators be punished. This, after the heinous act they have just committed on a Filipina mother of four.

The foreign minister should consider himself and his compatriots lucky that Filipinos are not in a position to burn more than the Singaporean flag.

If Filipinos can now stand up and be counted - and stop being doormats for the rest of Asia, then Flor Contemplacion's death will not have been in vain.
