Senior lecturers at Warwick University have voted against setting up a branch campus in Singapore be-cause of worries about limits on academic freedom in the country.

The vote is a blow to the city-state's ambitions to become a regional hub for higher education. It comes in the week that the outgoing US ambassador to Singapore warned in a farewell speech that Singapore's limits on expression might cause the government to "pay an increasing price for not allowing full participation of its citizens".

So Malaysians be mindful of our liberal expressions and freedom while you are in Singapore.
