The Rhetoric

“Will you keep your job? Can your families cope with school expenses, medical bills, rent and utilities charges? I understand your worries.”
PM Goh Chok Tong, Straits Times, Oct 28, 2001

The Reality

“Power supply is not a welfare organisation.”
DPM Lee Hsien Loong (Straits Times, Mar 13, 2002) is quoted as saying even as Straits Times reports that “Thousands can’t pay utility bills, many face power cut.” (Apr 12, 2003)
