Abhisit still inside the Rabbit Hole : “we will be cautious with spendings”

The government will be cautious in its spending after the House of Representatives passed the 2010 fiscal budget bill on Saturday, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva insisted.
Mr Abhisit said during his pre-recorded programme aired on Sunday morning that he would like to thank all MPs who voted for the 1.7 trillion baht budget bill on Saturday.

The government would be prudent in its spending, prevent the diesel price from going above 30 baht a litre, and curb the A/H1N1 flu outbreak,” the premier said. (Bangkok Post)

Abhisit is the man who increased the subsidies of fuels, who tries to mimic all the other clowns (Obama, Sarkozy, Brown etc.) by creating “stimulus packages”, who created the “1 time special allowance” (2000 THB for 8 millions of people in april, who remember this today ?), who wants to borrow billions of THB, who continues the stupid policies created by Samak (his alleged political ennemy) with free electricity, free water etc., who authorizes the military to buy grotesque gears. etc.


And the same man is talking now about “prudent spendings” ?


Abhisit, stop being a politician. You’re too smart for that. Go back home. And try to do something useful with your life…

    is Abhisit trying to keep the price of fuel low to maintain revenues to the Burmese junta?

    or is it only gas from Burma and oil is imported from elsewhere?

    Abhisit’s got nothing to worry about, surrounded as he is by intellectual giants with remarkable foresight. We are told that the Monetary Policy Committee is expecting GDP to show “an impressive recovery” in 2010 with growth returning to pre-2008 levels (http://www.nationmultimedia.com/2009/08/27/business/business_30110807.ph), and his Minister of Commerce apparently sees the drop in exports as now having bottomed out because of the recent marginal reduction in the enormous rate of decline and she is reported as “feeling upbeat” about export an growth of at least 10% next year (http://www.bangkokpost.com/breakingnews/152967/export-growth-to-resume-in-q4).
    It’s all a little like watching a patient’s life ebb away in an ICU and telling the relatives that their loved one is at last on the road to recovery because the patient’s blood pressure is no longer plummeting quite as quickly.

    By the way it’s funny to see the monetary policy committee (BOT) keeping interest rates at very low levels… and meanwhile speaking like parrots about “recovery” and even “impressive recovery”….

    Same old bullshit from brainless central bankers…

    And the worst is : it’s the same bullshit all over the world.

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.
