It was indeed depressing. But I’m not sure anymore It was “the most”… 😉
A new one is a serious competitor for the golden medal.
A latest survey reveals that many Thai people would accept a crooked government if it can make the country prosper and raise their standard of living.
The Abac Poll Research Centre conducted a survey on people’s well-being, involving 1,228 households in 17 provinces nationwide.
84.5 per cent viewed that corruption in businesses would not be unusual and 51.2 per cent said they would tolerate a corrupted government if it can improve the country and their well-being.
73.9 per cent agreed that living self-sufficiently can help ease the economic crisis. (Bangkok Post)
I give no credit to Abac… At all… But what strikes me is that they didn’t censor such “poll” ! 😉
And I love the part about the “self sufficiency” policy. It’s obvious that this joke was added after by some editor or crook to please theirs masters… I mean it’s hilarious.
It like to ask : “as a crook, a corrupted citizen who supports with a burning enthusiasm a corrupted government, as long as it can benefit yourself, do you approve the self-sufficiency philosophy promoted by our beloved King ?”
There is one mystery though… Why they didn’t write : “99,9 percent agreed” ? Or even “120 %” ? 😉
