In the great tradition of visual literacy (a picture tells a thousand words), I have this for those who believe in the ERP system and who continue to erect ungainly and futile concrete and electronic structures to tell Singaporeans that other countries are looking more attractive to live in, largely because these other countries don’t punish the have-nots for having to work in the city area.
That’s a pretty long sentence eh, but anyway, here goes:
Thank you, Begbie, for the precise use of sign language to tell those who make public policy for transport in Singapore. It’s a little unsophisticated, but I’m sure there’s a few in our town who won’t immediately get this universal message until he keeps his index finger in.
You folks might make the traffic smoother at all costs (there’s a pun!), but man, you don’t want to be blamed for the next elections result.
Note: What is fascinating, as some ST Forum letters have shown, that the general public is very aware of what’s plaguing our transport system, and what needs to be done to fix the problem for good (three words: limit car population). But some guys (I’ll refrain from name-calling here), pretend to know everything from their computer simulations and traffic flow charts, and hide behind their data. For goodness sake, listen to the people lah. I want SG to be number one in emphatic politics, everything else is insignificant.
