Peak hour breakdown trains down
thousands of passengers stranded; stuck in tunnel
broken window – ventilation
SMRT not prepared for situation /

blame game ensues – as usual
Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew tests back-up system,

Are Singaporeans whiners ?
Is it fair to compare with other countries ?
Who’s in the hotseat ?
Ms Saw Phaik Hwa President &
CEO SMRT Corporation Ltd,
credited with boosting profits tremendously
Totally unneeded gaffes that make good fodder for GP :
– íncome opportunity message to cabbies
– MP Saw Han Thong highlighting the substandard English of Malay & Indian train workers
– train system failure shortly follows hike in cab fares
