Expat banker who mocked ‘poor people’ on public transport faces fury of Singapore

Ugh, you poor people smell like shit. Literally. And I ought to know - I package it for a living and sell it back to your pension funds.

Ugh, you poor people smell like shit. Literally. And I ought to know – I package it for a living and sell it back to your pension funds.

The furore began on Sunday when Mr Casey, who has lived in Singapore for 12 years, uploaded a picture on Facebook of his son riding on a metro train, with the caption: “Daddy, where is your car & who are all these poor people?”

Another picture showed the boy sitting inside a silver convertible Porsche, with a caption saying: “Ahhhhhhhh reunited with my baby. Normal service can resume, once I have washed the stench of public transport off me.”

  1. Peter Jennings says:

    The stench was emanating from his top lip.

  2. Andy Perry says:


    ‘You see a rail system and this money system have another important thing in ccommon-the elite don’t like sharing with people like us. I don’t just mean seats in train carraiges, they don’t want to share access to the system itself…’


  3. Lisa Reed says:

    If they weren’t poor, he wouldn’t be able to afford a wife. (I’m making a risky assumption his wife is female!)

  4. Snooze says:

    I can only imagine, the public transport in Singapore is clean and efficient, like the country itself. I wouldn’t be surprised if the millionaires in Singapore have to use public transport to save time. Deport the bum.

  5. Will Summers says:

    They might be poor, but at least they can look themselves in the mirror in the morning, although judging by the photograph he doesn’t look to be tall enough to reach the mirror. The Porsche is obviously necessary to cure Small Man Syndrome.

  6. Snorky says:

    If this person really said such a thing, then he deserves whatever may come his way. He can’t take his filthy money with him.

  8. aminah says:

    yehahh..his wife and her family & friends are just as smelly, yes? gosh… and he somehow smells like fresh lavender? in your dream.

  9. BarmyBA says:

    Deprived of a meaningful existence deprived of work spat on shat on by the rich who cares ….?
    The word on the street among the poor who he despises is….that the planet will be three quarters incinerated….by mans own hand? By cosmic catastrophe?
    I DONT KNOW…but I trust the insight of the poor more than rich kids like him….!

    Enjoy the fireworks punk…! What will good will your silk underpants and your trophy wifey who REALLY loves you for YOU be then eh?

  10. What-me-worry? says:

    I’ve seen these guys before somewhere…..

  11. Chris says:

    Don’t they have caning in Singapore, I know he hasn’t committed any crime but they could always make an exception.

  12. Singapore Poor says:

    Newspaper comment -
    “I hope his wife takes him for every penny and runs off with someone actually attractive.”

  13. LL WTF Cool Jim says:

    I hate public transport too. Nothing to do with poor people though. Just too busy. 9/10 times I expense a taxi :P

    Having said that, the Singapore metros is nicely well kept, no grafitti; you probably get caned for that. Yes they do have caning in Singapore.

  14. LL WTF Cool Jim says:

    Who used to work at HSBC? Why not say he works at Crossinvest Asia?
    So hedge fund managers are ok?

  15. LL WTF Cool Jim says:

    Senior wealth manager maybe but to post offensive shit about the people of the country you are a guest of on a public media site belies the fact that he is … one truly stupid fucking cunt. Master of the universe he is not.

  16. LL WTF Cool Jim says:

    Nothing says stupid like “shit where you eat”.

  17. Magnum Innominandum says:

    If he didn’t have money, that woman certainly wouldn’t be standing with him. What a sad little man, overcompensating for what he lost in the genetic lottery.

  18. Chris says:

    What the dumb shit plebs of this world don’t get is people like this, think like that, about ALL (poorer) people all the time!!!! The more aristocratic the more condescending they get. There’s even a well known word for such an attitude – i.e condescending.

    What the poorer people should do is dig up the roads, that they laid in the first place. Then see how far the Casey’s of this world get in their, (averagely plain) Porsches.

    Casey is an a..hole!

  19. Jay says:

    Looks like a heated argument … I like the fact where this fellow is all of the sudden “sorry” for the statments he has made, like bankers & regulators are sorry for “oversights” (read planned fraud). The Elite will always protect the elite whilst sacrificing a few minor minions here and there … just the way the system works. I know wealthy people with good hearts… wealth does not equate to stupid or mean. But the bankster kind consider themselves God’s (fill in your own God) gift to the planet. On any of the highest levels corruption reigns. Many people for example believe that their leader and European leaders care about them … it really makes them really really naive … But voilence is never the answer despite Max’s call for the guillotines to come back into fashion

  20. Flopot says:

    Lol. The guy is a stupid moron and thinks he is brilliant. He fits the profile for a sociopathic drug money launderer…I mean a banker…no I mean a criminal…I mean banker…bankster! That’s the word.

  21. Flopot says:

    On the otherhand, the fact that people continue to vote in the same politicians who eagerly bend over for these guys, sort of justifies their low opinion of the hoi polloi.

  22. LL WTF Cool Jim says:

    @Jay “The Elite will always protect the elite” not really, nobody really likes anyone, they are actually competing against each other. Class war is a myth, its actually everyone against everyone else.

  23. LL WTF Cool Jim says:

    Would be funny if him and his wife got kicked out of the country.
    Its definitely a possibility. I’ve been there a few times and in these non-western places your instincts pick up the fact that the laws are different.

    He may have violated the Singaporean Sedition Act, 3(d) and 3(e)

    The question is, will he be made an example of?

    3. —(1) A seditious tendency is a tendency —

    (d) to raise discontent or disaffection amongst the citizens of Singapore or the residents in Singapore;
    (e) to promote feelings of ill-will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Singapore.

  24. sam says:

    the jealousy on these comments is obvious. I’m not ashamed to admit two FACTS that make his comments, well, FACTUAL.

    1 – the chick in that photo is HOT. I covet. So do you.

    2 – Public transportation, in general, is a VERY smelly place. And if you haven’t smelled people on public transport, then you simply have never taken public transport.

  25. LL WTF Cool Jim says:


    1 – I don’t. She looks like a cunt

    2 – You obviously haven’t been on the Singaporean public transport system (MRT). Its super clean and air conditioned.

    Additional – I hate public transport too, avoid it as much as possible but not because of “poor smelly” people just because its busy

  26. LL WTF Cool Jim says:

    She dresses like a hooker FFS

  27. blackswancandidate says:

    1. Speak for yourself – i dont covert ladyboys
    2. That smell you sense on public transport, far from being other passengers, is your own pleb ass

  28. Paul Freeman says:

    Lets just expose the mechanisms this monumental turd and his parasiic ilk use to make their money.
    Then overturn them. http://youtu.be/F527LbW84hA

  29. Paul Freeman says:

    Here’s a link to Nicholas Shaxson’s book ‘Treasure Islands Tax Havens And The Men Who Stole The World’.


  30. LL WTF Cool Jim says:

    You should bump this story back up the list. The Singapore minister for foreign affairs is even commenting on this.

    Mr Shanmugam said like many Singaporeans, he is terribly upset and offended by what Mr Casey has posted, describing the statements as “deeply offensive, wrong, and unacceptable”.

    I propose we invent a new word similar to schadenfreude to describe my feelings on this matter. Something along the lines of “schadenfreudeerektion”.
