Swiss is my favourite European airline. There, I’ve said it. I may love Lufthansa for it’s big network, I may like Germanic efficiency, hell, I may even have fallen in love with those wonderfully Lufthansa style meals that are identical no matter what flight you are on. But there’s something special about Swiss. Maybe its the chocolates you get on the flight. Or maybe it’s that smile that the stewardess sneaks you as she calls you by your name, or maybe, it’s because Swiss is just cheaper and better than it’s bigger German sister. Also, with Swiss I managed to book a flight via Swiss on Singapore Airlines. Yeah. So I get two for the price of 1. An amazing Business Class experience (for not much more than Singapore Airlines Economy) and a chance to get re-aquainted with Swiss’ European Business Class.
The taxi fare increases have led me to ask, what is the fundamental problem with the current oligopoly of taxis in Singapore? I don't believe that there isn't enough supply. The long, snaking queues leading from Changi Airport, from certain shopping centres provide plenty of evidence otherwise. YES, people have always said, when you need one they aren't there. But that's the same of pretty much anything, ATMs, Buses, etc. Even if it IS a question of supply, my proposed solution may go some way to alleviate the problem.

As a quick post. Here are a few meals from November and December in London…
Excellent Speech by HE Hilary Clinton, Secretary of State of the United States of America. Many phrases that will be forever etched in my mind, and remind me that much must be done, and must will be done in the fight of universal human rights.
Even if you believe that gay people are somehow different, or if you think there is something fundamentally wrong with homosexuality, you cannot disagree with the fundamental belief that everyone has the same set of rights outside of their sex lives. That they should and must be treated equally and with respect and dignity. It should never be the case that someone is criminalised for being different, and in this scenario, just like the rights of indigenous people, women, religious and racial minorities, there is no difference.
Believe in Free and Equal Rights, Believe in the Dignity of all Humanity.
