Removal of TV & Radio License Fees

It has been many years that I wanted the stupid TV & Radio license fees to be removed permanently from the island of Singapore, but to no avail.  The reason given was always that we needed the money to sponsor the less popular TV & radio programs such as some documentaries.

Today, 18 Feb 2011, the Singapore finance minister, announced in his 2011 budget speech, that the TV & Radio license fees will be permanently removed from this lovely island.  Hooray, this island becomes more beautiful with the removal.  It is a day for a small celebration, although too bad I am still very sick, down with the flu bug.  It is a day to remember, finanlly the government acknowledged that the TV & Radio license fees are no longer relevant and out-dated.
