The failure of a group of SMRT staff to carry out their maintenance duties - leading to an MRT tunnel flooding in October - had "negated the good work" of other SMRT workers, and "brought disrepute" to other transport workers, said Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan on Tuesday (Nov 14).

"They have tarnished the reputation of Singapore and Singaporeans," Mr Khaw said in a speech at Bedok Town Square, during the first appreciation day for public transport workers.

While the event was to recognise and thank about 22,000 transport workers, Mr Khaw had stern words for the SMRT staff responsible for the tunnel flooding on Oct 7 between Bishan and Braddell MRT stations, which shut down train services on a segment of the North-South Line for about 20 hours.

He said there will be "some black sheep" in every large organisation, and lapses leading to the flooding incident on Oct 7 could happen to other companies too.

He said the job of public transport operators was to identify errant workers, counsel them and give them a chance to shape up.

He has just unwittingly offended half the transport workers of Singapore.
How this guy can be a minister, is beyond the norm.
You need another equally mediocre leader to put him there.

Hypothesis - PAP supporters usually the lower socioeconomic-economic strata and older gen and housewives and not so educated ones?
