Transcript of Singapore
The drawback is that the natives has to pay heavy taxes for the colonizers and the natives are also in a lower class in the society because the British are their colonizers.
Indirect rule= colonial country uses local rulers to rule the colonized country. Direct rule= colonial uses their own men to go and govern the natives of the colonized country. The lasting effects on the colonized countries are the languages and cultures. We think that colonizing other countries has both positive and negative effects.
Positive=creates nationalism in the colonized country
Negative=the native people being stepped on, became slave, the nationalist were killed by colonizers.
First settlement (Pre-1819)
The first records of settlement in Singapore are from the 2nd century AD. The island was an outpost of the Sumatran Srivijaya empire and originally had the Javanese name Temasek ('sea town'). Temasek became a significant trading settlement, but declined in the late 14th century. There are few remnants of old Temasek, but archaeologists have uncovered artifacts of that and other settlements.
Between the 16th and early 19th centuries, Singapore was part of the Sultanate of Johor. During the Malay-Portugal wars in 1613, the settlement was set ablaze by Portuguese troops. The Portuguese subsequently held control in that century and the Dutch in the 18th, but throughout most of this time the island's population consisted mainly of fishermen. Independence (1946–present)
Following the war, the British government allowed Singapore to hold its first general election, in 1955, which was won by a pro-independence candidate, David Marshall, who became Chief Minister.
