I was surprised to read a sign in the Yio Chu Kang swimming pool that states - "This pool is the private property of the Singapore Sports Council .... ".
Hello, what does this mean? The SSC is a public body, right? Do they own private property? If so, who can use their private property?
Is the private property reserved for their board members, or their staff? Surely, the swimming pool can be used by members of the public, subject to payment of an entrance fee for the purpose of upkeep of the premises?
Does this mean that there are "public" properties owned by SSC that are different from their "private" properties?
Somehow, I get the feeling that the elites who are in charge have a sense of entitlement.
What say you?
