|Whatcha gonna do about it?|
In spite of spending some $6 million for "security enhancements", such as sturdier welded fences, a Fence Intrusion Detection System and more lights and CCTV cameras, someone still managed to waltz right into the depot and decorated their car with a leisurely spray painted "Jet Setter's". Barely 15 months ago, Swiss national Oliver Fricker and Briton accomplice, Dane Alexander Lloyd, had also expressed their foreign talent creativity on a parked MRT train. Dr Kumar Ramakrishna, head of the Centre of Excellence for National Security at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, underscored the severity of the security lapses: “If relatively unsophisticated vandals seeking thrills can gain unauthorised access to our trains, trained and determined terrorists with far sinister aims could do so as well.”
Saw's haughty dismissal of another slap-on-the-wrist $50,000 token fine is evident in her insouciance: “If LTA decides to fine us, so be it.” Emboldened by her patron, The Daughter-In-Law, she can easily give LTA's Lui Tuck Yew the one-finger salute. Besides, the puny fine is more than compensated for by the recent 1% hike in train fares, courtesy of the compliant sycophant, Gerard Ee of PTC. Assured of her immortality, she boldly promised, "We cannot have another incident." Remember, three strikes and you're out. Let's see if she lives up to her word, or blame it on "likelihood of human failure" when third time comes around.
