Never bot SMRT shares, even though this would be a gd hedge against rising public fare hikes, whether reasonable or not. As a value investor, I use public tpt, supplemented by taxi. But then I am not a slave, tied to office hours. I can use the system at-non peak hrs.
I always tot I was irrational for not buying the shares.But I realise I’m not. It seems I “knew” that mgt was incompetent.
No, not over the security breach and vandalism. The alleged offenders are white, educated FTs. Juz the kind of creative, innovative people that the government wants, And I don’t mind having. And the vandalism was artistic.
These people spot systems failure that they can exploit. So let’s not be too hard on them or the people or systems that get shown up.
If they were Pakistanis from Taliban-land, I would be worried: after the carnage.
No: mgt was incompetently firstly refusing to apologise. It never did It only “regretted”. Only some fool of an ST sub-editor could say that it was an “apology”.
To make things worse for itself (exposing further its stupdity), mgt tried to lay part of the blame on the public.
It shows how bad SMRT mgt is in coping with the unexpected.
What has public apathy to do with the breach of the security at the depot? And not reporting the “vandalism”. I mean if the train passes the muster of the staff before it goes out, and the public is not inconvenienced, why should the public complain abt some “artistic” designs.
