Brexit Vote Shows Rising White Nationalism: Singapore’s Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen
The challenge for Singapore in the face of the Brexit vote, Ng said, will be to stay neutral and not judge those countries facing an increased desire for national identity, and the growing anti-globalization sentiment that was driving them to be more assertive about protecting their markets.
"There is a resurgence of what pundits and political analysts call far-right, a rising nationalism, which is a reaction hearkened to so-called ‘good old days’," Ng told reporters at a media conference ahead of Singapore Armed Forces day. "We want to be neutral, in terms of not being judgmental because this is as history goes. But nonetheless, it is a challenge," he said.
