Chewing gum is banned in Singapore so leave it at home when packing your bags. Importation of chewing gums into the country, even if it is not for trading, is illegal.
Not Flushing the Toilet
Not flushing the toilet is more than just a breach of propriety in Singapore, you will be breaking the law if you do not.
I am liking the sound of Singapore more and more. I detest chewing gum and think people chewing it look like cows but without the docility and intelligence. And as for not flushing the toilet: if it's brown, flush it down, if it's yellow, flush it down too you filthy swine.
Back on topic, though. I do think that the OP made some very important points. It often takes someone with a different viewpoint to come along and point out that what you take to be normal and reasonable actually isn't.
Duxford was a good choice because that is one of the few airfields which has been substantially supported over the years, as part of the IWM, by public money, our money.
Oh, and I agree with @johnm, build houses on golf courses or, better still, build airfields on golf courses (and not in the way Harrison Ford did).
