Anton Casey, the British fund manager who mocked the 'poor people' of Singapore on Facebook, has been sacked and forced to flee the country for Australia.
Casey, 39, took a Singapore Airlines flight to Perth on Friday but not before first apologising for the biggest mistake in his life and offering to do ''community service''.
The angry reaction to his Facebook insults had left his situation and that of his former Miss Singapore wife, Bernice Wong, and son in the island state untenable.

Casey who worked for a small financial company called CrossInvest, and who occasionally appeared on local television as a financial pundit, had displayed, claimed angry Singaporeans, 'intolerable arrogance'. CrossInvest said in a statement: "[Casey's] comments go against our core corporate and family values that are based on trust, mutual understanding and are respectful of diversity.
"Accordingly, CrossInvest Asia and Mr Casey have parted ways with immediate effect."
