Treating Old Folks Right

"CHILDREN who dump their elderly parents in hospitals or nursing homes could be taken to task and forced to help pay for their parents' care.

The Government will study how best to use the Maintenance of Parents Act to get such children to do their filial duty, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong last night during his National Day Rally speech in Mandarin."

Govt may act against children who dump their elderly parents

  1. seriously, coming from a leadership who doesn't believe in taking care of its people, especially the aged(welfare), it sounds rather hypocritical to expect(impose) such values on its citizens.

    anyway, great cartoons
