Not exactly 100% Natural but definitely the closest you can get to it
What has happened is that the government's long held belief that the public transport market could be run competitively, while enriching state coffers in an indirect way, has bit them in the arse royally. Only the naive and foolish would actually believe that ****, especially considering how just about every public transportation system in the world becomes a natural oligopoly.
Anyway, this is really a thankless job. The problems and system failures are not within a minister's control. all due to other people's incompetence and technical faults. He was only a public face for people to throw rotten eggs at.
Unlike HDB problem where KBW can take total control and ramp up the flat supply and finally resolving the housing problem, Tuck Yew can't do the similiar to our MRT problem. The technical faults are too big and too late for him to do any rectification.
If wan to blame, put it on SMRT board of directors, precedent system planners and engineers. They are the ones who should resign.
He turns his back not only to politics but also the prize of a premiership.
His future career in private sector will earn him many times the remunerations he now gets plus many more relaxing days for fry fishing and quiet evenings for red wine and a good book in front of fireplace.
It's a win for him but a loss for Singapore.

It's odd how people are lamenting his loss, and his achievements.. prior to his resignation, he was blasted for everything that he did, his looks and there were so many rude comments...
