This is part of Singapore’s natural aristocracy.
This after it was revealed that priority queue is part of Singapore’s natural aristocracy and regular shoppers were barred from entering the line by security when it was empty but manned by a cashier.
One Singaporean, Pai Dui, said: “I was informed this morning that this ‘Ministers First’ queue is to be kept free at all times because it will only open up when a minister comes into the supermarket to buy something and needs to pay.”
“This will then create no hassle for him to buy and leave unhindered as his security detail might have firearms.”
Other locals said more needs to be done to ensure ministers in Singapore will be able to to move freely.
Liang Diao, another local, said: “Instead of having just one Ministers First priority checkout line open at all times, the supermarkets can consider having two free lines.”
“This will ensure that in the event two ministers walk into the supermarket to buy things, they wouldn’t have to give way to each other to see who gets to go first and can just pay together separately at the two lines.”
“This will prevent the stirring of anger and hatred.”
