“Thailand no longer has social classes called ammart and phrai. People are equal under the Constitution although they have unequal opportunities,” the premier told TV Channel 5, referring to the terms used by Thaksin and his red-shirt supporters.
Under the old absolute monarchy, ammart was used refer to bureaucrats and phrai to commoners. (Nation)
At one point, cheap rethoric is just plain silly. Grotesque. And counterproductive.
The non elected Prime Minister, the man who became PM thanks to a parliamentary coup, the man who lost every elections, the man who has a job thanks to a handfull of MP, ex friends of Thaksin who were bought… this man loves to speak about the “rule of law”, “democracy”, “respect” etc.
This man should just shut his mouth. This man was automatically disqualified in december 2008. We should repeat it, again, and again, and over again.
To dare to say that the thai “people are equal under the constitution” is just unbearable. And is a military coup part of the “unequal opportunities” Abhisit is talking about ?
Thailand has endured dozen of coups, the last one in 2006 with an inane Junta leaded by inane generals who have designed the current constitution.
I mean what kind of political bordello is that ? Can we be proud of it ?
Abhisit is unbearable because he’s smiling. He looks self-content. But there is nothing to smile about in Thailand since several years, nothing to be proud of.
Abhisit should just say : “it’s like that, we assume power, we have to, if you’re not happy, fuck you”, instead of trying, desesperately, to sale to the world this cheap image like a “sale representative in democracy”, like the host of a TV shopping show.
We need leadership, vision, extreme intelligence and audacity.
Instead we have absolute mediocrity.
