Elitist: a person who believes that a society or system should be led by an elite.

Supremacist: a person who believes that a particular group, especially one determined by race, religion, or sex, is superior and should therefore dominate society.

LKY: “We’re only the descendants of illiterate, landless farmers in Fujian and Guangdong”

Make your own meaning out of it

Means don’t look down on SIM UOL? Why did you feel the need to bring them up?
If “the descendants of illiterate, landless farmers in Fujian and Guangdong” can make it,
why cant anyone else?

Spoken like a true PAP supporter. I hope the irony is not lost on you.

A quick perusal of the latest posts here and one would think this forum is worse than the SIM UOL thread, which as we know is full of braggarts and trolls. And the irony is the majority of the lawyers posting here would probably look upon SIM UOL with contempt, oblivious to the fact that they are displaying far worse behaviour.
How senior are you? Are you not billing enough?

Why is the SIM UOL thread of relevance to you? Are you a UOL distance learning law grad too?

If not you, there are other lawyers your age who are from UOL distance learning.

All this tells me is that you are passing unnecessary judgement on those younger than you / from SIM UOL.

Which is ironical too, 'cause you were once young.

I agree with him fully. Some of the non-constructive posts here are regrettable.

There isn't much substance to NUS 2:1 "elitism". Seriously, grow up. No one at the Bar cares whether you're NUS, SMU, KCL, Bristol, Hull or Leeds. There are also many, many metrics by which you can measure academic competence.

Even then, academic competence does not necessarily translate to practical competence. You are a practitioner. Not a textbook author (though, some practitioners are also very, very strong academically, but I am just making a point). Your clients come to you for practical and commercial advice, not a law school essay on what a leading academic says.

From the client's perspective - you write an essay, you're out. I don't pay you to give me an essay you wrote in your first semester of law school. I pay you to give me what I want.

This forum should reflect a profession, not a school or a playground. The theatrics here is embarrassing.

I'm not even sure if some of these trolls even took the oath to uphold the law seriously. With the oath in mind, I don't ever think it is approriate to comment on how the upskirt photo was acceptable (referring to the post above in the last few pages). Did you even think before posting?

On the degeneration of this forum into political divides by the trolls, why do you even care? What does someone's political beliefs matter to you? Arsenal, Man U, Man City, PAP, WP?

What's it to you, so much do that you need to come and post anonymously about your Facebook friends supporting a certain political party? Why is it "brown nosing" to express your political beliefs?

Are you really so narrow minded that any support for a view contrary to yours is "brown nosing"? Is there no reasonable degree of freedom of expression in Singapore?

This will also my last post on this thread. If it changes your mindset, my time isn't wasted. But I pity the fools who remain entrenched in propagating stupidity and nonsense, and who waste their time with perceived elitism and misogyny.
