Episode 2: Government of the People, and by the People

The seeds of Singapore's independence movement were sown in the very first years of its existence. Raffles, Farquhar, and Crawfurd all had major impact on the contours of politics in Singapore, which would in turn have a huge impact on the nature and trajectory of Singapore's colonisation movement. In this episode of "The History of Singapore", PJ Thum traces how Raffles' radical vision, Farquhar's good sense and courage, and Crawfurd's shrewd pragmatism gave birth to Singapore's history of freedom, liberty, and republicanism.
