It's kind of doubtful that they'll go all out, but in the city that I remember most as winning the "City Most Likely to Have a Stick Up It's Arse" award, any loosening is an improvement. They are, in fact, allowing bungee jumping in an attempt to seem more relaxed.

"In fact, so changed is our mind-set that we will even allow reverse bungee." said Prime Minister Oh Choke Tong.

I think the real question, for me is, is Singapore just what we need? I hate the idea of a lack of freedom so intense that I would, until just last week, need to buy black-market chewing gum. Yet, Singapore holds the highest standard of living in all of Southeast Asia, and to people looking to scale back crime and 'inappropriate activities', this seems like a likely rolemodel. To be honest, I've really got no idea how they maintain this kind of lifestlye so I don't know how it works, but I don't think I would like living there.

I'm a little curious - what do you people think?


Will Singapore Really Loosen Up?
