NETIZEN: LTA SHOULD HAVE WATER POINTS FOR US TO DRINK IN MRT STATIONS

Yes, it is an offence to drink on MRT train according to Rail Transist System regulation. But there are people who are sick and suffer from sore throat who needs to be constantly hydrated while on their way home to rest. The reason for the ban is to avoid inconvenience or injury to other passengers caused by spills. If the person drinking did not cause any spills, is there a reason to kick up a fuss? If such a ban is to be enforced, the LTA should provide a water point inside every station so that a thirsty passenger can drink without exiting the station midway through an arduous train journey. Then any spills should be limited to a small corner inside the train station where consumption is allowed.

COE, ERP AND WATER ALL INCREASED, WHAT’S NEXT?

Why does the PAP continue to INCREASE the cost of living in Singapore during a recession? In times of economic uncertainty, they raise the cost of water, the most important resource to keep on living, all while maintaining their high salaries. With the recent increase in motorbike COE and introduction of more ERPs, I wonder what will be the next decree that will drill holes in our pockets.

In response, Mr Masagos said: “We are unable to provide details of computation because of commercial sensitivities”.

Decision already made, we will have to pay 30% more for water usage, so make sure we all know how important water is. Sad thing is, this morning, I had my usual coffee at this coffee stall at Ang Mo Kio Ave 4, Blk 628. The stall owner said they already increased the price coffee at 10 cents per cup!

WATERGATE: PAP CAUGHT FLIP-FLOPPING ON WATER PRICE, DECLARED NO NEED TO CHANGE PRICE JUST 1 YEAR AGO

PAPpies and their running dogs in the constructive, nation-building media and academia and on social media say that the price of water hasn’t been changed for years, so we shouldn’t be getting worked up about the 30% hike (peanuts, really). But 18 months ago, VivianB said (see below) there was no need to change the price because PUB has improvements in membrane tech and productivity and that the water tariff and WCT reflect the scarcity of water.

PAP TRYING TO TURN WATER INTO LUXURY ITEM FOR THE RICH?

Water price hike is normal but to increase 30% is abnormal. Normal will be 1%-5% for necessities like water. Water must never be a luxury. Ask any business manager or accountant, 30% increase can be only due to incompetency, greed, power, bad accounting and bad management.
