Dear A.S.S. Editor
Anyone read REACH’s poll where they stated that more than half of Singaporeans welcomed Budget 2017’s initiatives to support families and build a more inclusive society, but many disagreed with the move to increase water prices.
The poll had randomly chosen 1,111 Singaporeans aged 20 and above, and they were polled by phone. The surprising thing? 32% of those polled agreed with the water price hike, 43%disagreed and 24% were neutral. 32% agreed with the water price hike? Who did they poll? These people who never have to pay for the water bills, or those who have so much money that a 30% increase in price hike is small change to them?
This is really unbelievable. The fact that people agreed to any price hike is already incredible, 32% actually agreed to the excessive price hike?
