On Wednesday in Parliament, Sylvia Lim pointed out that the PAP Government had couched the decision on how to count the Elected Presidency under a legal cloak by claiming that this was the Attorney-General's advice. This was done to avoid any rigorous challenge in Parliament. But now Shanmugam claims it was never suggested that that the decision to count from Wee Kim Wee was made because of the AGC's advice. How can you trust the PAP after this?
Because if a commuter were to travel from Novena to Orchard MRT for instance (which are 2 stations apart) one would need to pay between $0.70-$0.80/$0.90. But if one has to urgently use the toilet at Newton Station and taps back in to continue his/her journey to Orchard his/her fare would add up to an estimated cost of $1.40. In short SMRT would be making on average a minimum of 50% profit on the commuter just for using the toilet. And even if one manages to beat the 15 mins grace period to tap in to the Blue line to continue the journey to Orchard, it would mean a circular route will have to be used which would lead to travel fares of at least $1 or more, again a minimum of $0.30 profit by SBS/SMRT just for using the toilet.

A netizen disagreed with Min Shanmugam for saying that every minister's speech be taken as statutory legislation. He argued that if this is true, it defeats the purpose of The Hansard (an official record of speeches) and having Parliamentary sittings in the first place. What do you think?
