By introducing the new water tax, every item related to water would also experience substantual price increase ie. A cup of coffee will cost 30% more? Car wash at petrol kisok will cost 30% more? Etc....the list goes on which affect ordinary folks like us in our daily life, not to mention the effect it has on businesses here.

Good morning.

I did a quick check to understand what the pap meant when they said water costs have been increasing.

In 2008, 1 cubic meter of newater was being sold to PUB for $0.30.

In 2017, one cubic meter of newater was being sold to PUB for 27.6¢.

As you can see, the wholesale price of newater has increased substantially from 0.30 to 27.6. A 9100% increase!!!

Don't you feel lucky that the increase to us is only 30%?

Nothing much to talk about. It's all one-sided as usual. Ppl are expected to listen and follow.

 

Get ready your buckets, pail and trolley. Raining time go collect rain water.

What I see is monopoly. Anti-competition. We are surrounded by seawater. The desalination plants are owned by the govt and they dictate the price of clean water. What we want is to introduce competition to make prices competitive not the govt says how much and we LL have to pay that amount.

Must ask all govt ministers to show hand all their monthly household water utility bill. Whoever uses more than the national average must get their pay cut to let them appreciate the importance of water like one of our minister say.

There's competition in the price being charged by the plants - not all of them are owned by the govt.

 

What we need is competition for govt.


Next time go stomp whoever minister that sent their car to car wash.

 

Groomers go to their house to wash and groom the car la.

Our finance minister must go for brain check up again after the first stroke as he anyhow raise water fee by 30% as it is too steep to swallow for ordinary folks like us. Or maybe someone changed his finance budget script while he is hospitalised. Either way 30% increase is way too steep.
