No anger, no question, no protest
The announcement of the steep hike in electricity tariff is met with an expected silence. Not a single muffle of unhappiness. No one question why the hike is so steep, whether the formula is right, whether the mechanism in the forward purchase of oil is the best or whether there are better ways to protect the interests of consumers. This is the best kept secret of Singapore's success. Faith and confidence that everything is in good hands. It is the best that is being done. Accept it, or it could be worst.
