    If SMRT is responsible to overhaul and/or replace the MRT rolling stock then much money needs to be spent.
    The new CEO of SMRT emphasised that it is a listed company and in order to be tenable, must seek profits.
    Listed companies' shareholders are sophisticated investors who risk potential losses while seeking potential profits.
    Much money was generously given to help out the listed bus companies. So not sure if it will be the same with SMRT.

    Former Chief of Defence Force. Ironically, transport minister is former Chief of Navy. There are lots of ex-military in GLCs.

    Its not just government. The retirement age for military is 50. So they will have to move on for succession. They are placed as senior managements for a few years and then move to board members.

    Oh wow... now that you guys mentioned it... there really is quite a bit of ex-military personnel in our government.

    Damn! I should have signed on when I have the chance once upon a time when scholarship is still not everything. Now too late

    Seems like these Generals...... are not so well equipped to handle the real world situation... or so I think, and based on some of the ex-Army people I see..... Not only in GLC, but also in Government....

    BG LHL, BG Chan, Rear Ad Teo, Rear Ad Lui............... Was PM wife ex-officer too???
