I am sorry to find this out so late, but it is my pleasure to announce that Singapore beat Malaysia and a host of other countries like Uganda, Dem. Rep. of the Congo and Sierra Leone. We were number 83 out of 149 positions, a good number ahead of Malaysia's 93rd position. We almost beat Mauritania (81st) and Bhutan (82nd) too. Better luck next time!
Of course we all know that these freedom indexes are compiled by people with too much free time in their hands, and who do not have a clue about the unique conditions of Singapore.
But we beat Malaysia! Yeah!
