No calls to fence up communal areas so the public can have exclusive access there.

Communal areas in Clark Quay such as the water fountain and pedestrian walkways should be fenced off to make sure “the old and young can get to use the space meant for them”, said no PAP MP ever.

None of the remaining 82 PAP MPs in Parliament said crowds in the Clark Quay area have returned to levels before the Dec. 8, 2013 riot in Little India, and residents around the waterfront must be protected from “the disamenities that can arise from large gatherings”.

All PAP MPs, however, tacitly acknowledged the contributions of these foreign workers in Clark Quay, but not one of them openly said: “Congregations of such high density are walking time-bombs and public disorder incidents waiting to happen.”

And no MPs from the ruling party called for more recreation centres for foreign workers to be built outside Clark Quay.

Authorities not sure what went right.

Authorities grappling for answers as to why the Little India riot occurred last December were left even more puzzled as watering hole Clark Quay did not experience a similar incident the past year.

This despite having all the elements there at one place to start the most proper and epic riot.

An official spokesperson, Qu Da Jia, said: “All the contributing factors present in Little India last December were similarly available in Clark Quay throughout the year: People, alcohol and dustbins for tossing.”

“But nothing happened.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life have also expressed their amazement that Clark Quay was not ground zero given that there are more drunks there and alcohol is way overpriced.

Qu Pia Zui, a local said: “A bottle of beer for $12? I’m surprised no one has started a fight over that yet.”

However, the lack of riots at Clark Quay has been shown to be a result of expensive alcohol possessing certain anti-rioting elements.

A Singaporean scientist, Dr Lim Kar Tor had discovered earlier in March this year that the two main anti-rioting properties present in expensive alcohol are called “wealth” and “opportunity”, which make a difference in the reactions of drinkers.

Dr Lim explained then: “You can find these properties called ‘wealth’ and ‘opportunity’ only in expensive alcohol. Once you’ve consumed enough of it, you wouldn’t be upset with your lot in life.”
