By then, everyone would have forgotten.
This after 15 PAP town councils will increase service and conservancy charges (S&CC) from June 1, 2017, giving the populace a good few years to forget this ever happened before heading to the polls again.
One Singaporean, Wang Ji, said: “When conservancy charges get raised, you know we are not even at the mid-point between two general elections.”
“From the looks of it, the next General Election will be held in late 2020. Mark my words.”
Other locals said such tactics must be made into an academic subject as governance these days is all about such hands-on, practical approaches rather than outmoded and high-highfalutin ideas of what governance is.
Another local, Heng Lui, said: “Many people think good governance is doing the right thing for the people and putting people first.”
“The truth is, governance is about doing shitty things to people but ensuring most people forget when the time comes to vote.”
“Singapore has pioneered this method and we can export it overseas.”
