    • I support removal of "others". 

      It is an insult to peranakans, eurasians, jews, arabs, armenians, sikhs etc to be listed as "others".

      Oh, no problem as he can regain his UK citizenship quite easier if he is a British Born (But can only do once). In fact most countries allow this. That is how some having SG and other citizenship after 21 (which is not allow but normally they won't get caught). You can see the attached link for more info, if you are British Born and want to go along this line. (Of course, many other countries allow this too, but I dun want to attach ton of link here). http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/britishcitizenship/givingupcitizenship/howtogiveupnationality/ http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/britishcitizenship/applying/applicationtypes/resumptionofcitizenship/

      Maybe in the past where info flow is not so good, most people dun know that they can regain their original citizenships easier thus they are not willing to give up their original citizenships, but now such knowledge is better know as they know that they can give up their original citizenship and when needed, they can regain it back. (Plus, just something important to Singapore Born Citizens, though SG give citizenship to other easier, however unlike most other countries, once a Singapore Born Citizen give up SG citizenship, it is quite impossible for them to regain which is different to other countries).

      probably tosimplify things, nd also to stress that although we have a multi-racial facet, main races are still chinese, malays, indians and caucasions.

       

      caucasions seems to hve a wider coverage on race.

      we have to note the entnity group also, and not to confuse them with race.
