Buying defective MRT trains from China will help S’pore’s learning culture

Posted on 07 July 2016

No need for blame.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe blame is only reserved for the opposition and anti-establishment types, have come out to console SMRT.

This after it was discovered that a total of 26 China-made SMRT trains were sent back to fix defects.

One Singaporean, Mei Wen Ti, said: “This is part of Singapore’s learning culture.”

“By buying defective goods, we will learn to buy better ones in the future. There is no need for blame.”

“We must, in fact, buy more to learn more.”

Other locals said Singaporeans must learn to look beyond the faults and pick out learning points for themselves.

Another Singaporean, Huai Diao, said: “The pain and regret of buying defective trains and throwing money down the drain is punishment enough.”

“We must move forward.”

“But if the trains are spoilt, then of course, they can neither move forward nor backward on their own.”
