The most depressing “opinion poll” ever : children want… things from Abhisit

The majority of children questioned in a poll conducted by Assumption University would like to see the end to political rallies as the present for Children’s Day.

About 60% of the children want to see the end to the protests, while 37.2% want to see unity in the country. Some 15.8% want the adults to donate goods like sports equipment to children.

The survey questioned 1,157 children aging 10 to 15 years old living in Bangkok. It was conducted from Wednesday to Friday.

Most of the children, or 91%, say they would like adults to set good examples on showing respect to the monarchy, while 89.1% say they want to see national reconciliation. Some 72.5% say they want adults to respect the rules of laws, while 71.8% say they want them to support each other.

When asked what they want from Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, about 39% say they want things like computers, mobile phones, cars and homes from him. Some 27% say they want scholarship and free education, while 22% say they want to see peace in the country. (Bangkok Post)

What kind of twisted and perverted mind is able to make such “opinion poll” ? It’s disgusting, it’s an insult to the intelligence.

And as usual, the classic “monarchy” item, mixed with totally idiotic and confused questions. I’m surprised that the result is not 100 %, like any respectable african banana lalaland.

As to know what the children “want from Abhisit” (mobile phones, houses and cars !)… I’m going to vomit.

Assumption University ?!

“Psychiatric ward” would be more appropriate.

    There are such rubbish polls conducted and results published daily. Such a waste of time and resources conducting opinion polls for non-sense reasons. Nobody knows where and how they do the sampling and where they go to interview the sample group.

    There have been a time when these poll results showed 3 candidates in an election, each of whom received over 40% of popularity !? And they are often published on TV.

    Sounds like this poll was “engineered” by the Bangkok Post – I don’t trust any of their other reporting either. I remember a few years back when the Post published the results of a survey by the Ministry of Education, which found that the average IQ of 16 year-old school leavers was 85 – which is very close to a retard (80). The Post felt this information was so important that it was published on page three in a one inch column with no commentary.

Thailand Crisis

Coup, Economic slowdown, Terror In the South... The situation is worsening in Thailand. Bumpy road like often before.

But this time, it's different.

The key to understand the present turmoil is the inevitable... succession of King Bhumibol.
