Yesterday LTA announced that it will fine SMRT about $400K for the train disruption it caused in January 2008 as they were found not complying to operation procedure during maintenance work.
SMRT reported it might appeal fine and ensure the discipline action will be taken against the staff concerned.
I seriously doubt any Top management from SMRT will take responsibility and resign. Most probably some poor soul will be made the scapegoat and take all the blame and be sacked.
Same go for the Mas Selamat escape.
I can be almost sure that DPM Wong and the Chief of Police will still be around for a long long time.
This is what I can “shit flow downward”.
Same things are happening at work places all the time.
When come to a crisis, no top managements are there to take the responsibilities. They are there all the time to enjoy the perks but never there to take the blames.
So if the government act like this, we can’t blame the government related companies for doing the same thing and we most certainly can’t blame Singaporean for being “bochap” and selfish.
