"Fare hikes to help transport workers" So it now MY fault that bus captains don't get paid better?

When LHL asked LBH to step down, he said he wanted to spend time doing more gardening. Suddenly the self-important ex portfolio minister emulates LKY to dispense his own brand of pearls of wisdom to new MPs how to engage negative feedback. He adds his one cent worth to support transport fare hikes - ridiculous reasons that they need the money to buy new buses, pay the drivers more or standards will drop as if standards were not bad enough as it is now!! I think the fare hike is to fatten the shareholders like Temasek and their own top people like the fat cats who drive big expensive carsi to work. Laughable that the hike is to pay bus drivers better - they lowered their costs by cheap China imports to drive the buses - jerking, jamming, speeding, I don't understand what you say or where you want to go attitude. LBH - just retire enjoy your big pension and shut up!!
