    But the bottom line is he has the $$$ to buy camera for you. So this must be his spare or extra $$$$?

    Nothing is free. We don't produce fuel. We have to depend on others.

    I feel the pain with 21% increase. So what to do? Tell them not increase? Tell them to subsidy you?

    One positive move is use less aircon, drive less so that they make less!

    Tell them to better manage, if not change management. We are not people of old everything accept one... protest will register at later date if these things happen more and more.

    At the rate of more bad news and price increases coming one after another, think protest will be more evident and performance will be likely less than 66.6% liow.

    If I do not want to pay more then use less. Now if everybody use less, they earn less too.

    Generally I think the main issues is that, year in year out, these companies are posting RECORD profits.

    The question is, are these companies out to get profits or are they providing a public service.

    Both SMRT and Sing power posted increase in profits and yet they are increasing the price for their services.

    I think if companies are making losses due to rising raw material cost, then generally most citizens will accept the increase and find it justifiable.

    So in essence, citizens are paying for the services and lining the pockets of these shareholders. And if you look deeper SingPower is wholly owned by Temasek Holdings.

    So you see all this whining is getting to?

    Actually you have given part of the answer:

    Buy these companies shares loh! Then you get to share their profits, which goes back to pay for the fare/price increases :-)

    For the general citizens that may be an option. But what about those not so well to do? They can hardly fend for themselves and now seemingly public services are juicing them as well.

    Herein lies the question, why make it so complicated? does anybody stand to gain by that complicated way of rebate yadah yadah?

    And the record, the for poor, road tax rebates hardly counts since chances are they don't own a car.

    And for all the financial assistance available, countless forms have to be filled in order to get it. Tell that to the poor ah pek and ah ma who hardly recd any education. It serve as a deterrence rather then assistance.
