I apologize : I just can’t keep my promise to stop criticizing the new Prime Minister before next week (before the official nomination of the Cabinet’s members).
I just can’t.
You were hoping for “change” ? A new style in thai politics ?
Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva disclosed Saturday that Democrat Party chief advisor Chuan Leekpai declined to tell him details about his dissatisfaction over the Cabinet lineup of the Democrat quota. […]
Speaking to a meeting of Democrat MPs at a seminar on Koh Samui, Surat Thani, Abhisit urged Democrat MPs to tell him of their dissatisfaction instead of talking to reporters. […]
“I whispered to him why he was angry at me but he has not yet answered my question,” Abhisit said. (Nation)
What the hell is he talking about ? Can you imagine a more nonsensical statement ? Democrat MPs can’t speak to Abhisit ? Give me a break.
Such idiotic statement proves 2 things :
-In addition to -inevitable- problems with the Frankenstein coalition members, Abhisit faces also issues with his own troops.
-Despite his promises, despite his appearances, Abhisit is nothing but a classic thai politician, who uses lies (see his interviews to CNN and BBC) and regular cheap rethoric with a pinch of zen bullshit.
Instead of saying : yes some of my troops are unhappy (so what ?)… he says that he asked, and they didn’t answer him, therefore the problem doesn’t exist.
Cheap, cheap, 3 satangs rethoric for god’s sake !
What a bad start.
In order to convince us, Abhisit will have to find more substance, real one, instead of nice haircut, sending… SMS to voters and nice smiles on TV…
