Political Censorship Revisited

Three years ago, I argued that the Government had to rethink its policy on political films in Singapore.

At this year's National Day Rally, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong adopted some of the suggestions made.

I had premised then, "These moves would address the Government's concerns about the negative effect of party political films and its desire "to keep political debate in Singapore serious", while in the long run, also enrich our creative industries and make audiences more media savvy."

I stand by those views.
