So now MM has to step forward to try to convince the public to accept another lame excuse - 'extraordinary' rainfall.
Sorry,MM, we are don't buy this one either. It is just a another word to replace :
- once in 50 years
- unstable weather
It is human fault and NOTHING to do with Mother Nature.
Likely it is the barrage itself couple with drainage management issues and even direct human error. PUB already acknowledge it is due to undercapcity drainage system. If it is so, why is it under design ? This is one of the most serious mistake and very costly too. More tax payers' money needs to pump in for corrective action. How can we be assure they can get it right this time?
This is what happen when number one comes out with what he thought is a great idea, no one dares oppose him. So millions spent on another S'pore iconic project to constuct the barrage. Likely the barrage is one of the teething problems causing the recent series of floods.
Must save face at all cost, let the truth be hidden. Continue using different words to blame Mother Nature.
