Abhisit has started the reward campaign.
Nothing really surprising, only the bozos were thinking that with Abhisit things would, could change.
But what is striking is the same deja-vu arrogance, fundamental trait of character of all the thai politicians.
Abhisit, the so called “Oxford educated prime minister”, is just a politician, perfect duplicata (albeit younger and with a better hair style) of his peers.
Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva yesterday defended the appointment of Prapan Khoonmee, a Democrat Party member and leader of the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD), as an adviser to Science Minister Kalaya Sophonpanich.
The premier was mobbed by a crowd of Government House reporters who bombarded him with questions about the matter.
Abhisit said Prapan has been part of a Democrat Party working group and worked for the party for some time.
However, when asked about Prapan’s background in science and technology, the prime minister paused for a moment before saying “he is somewhat knowledgeable”.
He rejected claims Prapan’s appointment was a reward for the PAD. “Nobody has got any reward. Everybody is joining the government simply to work,” he said. (Nation)
We could ask : is Abhisit “somewhat knowledgeable” ? 😉
