What an awkward and ironic way to celebrate SG50 by giving free public transport – an essentially welfarist move – that seems to not go in line with our nation’s state ideology.
And oh, did the people abuse the free transport by going from Tampines to Jurong East, to and fro, seven times? No. Big smack to the face of PAP advocates of non-healthcare coverage because people would abuse it just because it is free.
No one would fall sick just because there is free healthcare. And I even saw people rushing into the MRT trains to get to places as if the rides were still charged.
Thank you for proving us right, once again.
