Who needs good opposition when you have a feedback unit. One morning because I didn't read my Straits Times properly, I woke up feeling very angry ... I think it was over the increase of my utilities bill which hit $200 that month, I shoot off 3 letters to the feedback unit and felt much better. I receive a courteous letter saying my ideas are being 'considered' ....I was so satisfied knowing that the govt has taken into account my views. Now although I pay $250 for my utilities bill, I feel much better.
The Feedback Unit will now get even better!! To appeal to the new generation of web savvy Singaporeans, they will have blogs and an SMS feedback channel. I guess once they do that there will absolutely no need for an opposition, who needs an opposition when you can SMS to a central database and have your views collated.
Singaporeans are so lucky to have a feedback unit to which they can send their views and opinions to.
