Abhisit in Lalaland : “People are equal under the Constitution…”

“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.

Enough.

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 don’t need vacuum cleaners, “PermaClear With FREE Anti Mist“, “Eco Steam Master” nor “Titan Vegetable Shaver“.

We need leadership, vision, extreme intelligence and audacity.

Instead we have absolute mediocrity.

    I read in the newspapers they are going to have 30 minutes of intellectual stuff on television every Monday from 7:30 PM to 8.00 PM to educate Thailand. They couldn’t educate Thailand if they started at 6:30 PM.

    Hypocrite = a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.

    It’s the duty of every government to solve the chronic problem of social inequality. But it is not easy. My government is also trying to solve the problem

    Charge the PAD on government house and airport occupation, then make the claim.

    “This can help reduce the gap between people who have large amounts of land and those who have no land at all,

    Pass the land and inheritance tax, then make the claim.

    MFA Asks “Thaksin, Where are you?”
    UPDATE : 20 March 2010
    Amidst conflicting reports as to the exact whereabouts of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is taking measures to find out if he has really returned to the United Arab Emirates.

    The ministry has asked the Thai Embassy in the UAE to check is Thaksin is really there. Reports suggest that if he is, the ministry will send new evidence of his political activities to the UAE government with further requests that the UAE not allow him to use the country as a political base against Thailand.

    Vice Foreign Minister Panit Vikitset had earlier claimed that he had received confirmation from UAE authorities that Thaksin would not be allowed back into Dubai upon his departure for Montenegro. However, Thaksin claims that he had safely returned to Dubai and will be staying there for a while.

    “30 minutes of intellectual stuff”

    By that they mean 30 minutes of additional intensive brain-washing on top of the usual brainwashing.

    “MFA Asks “Thaksin, Where are you?”

    Sounds like an episode of Sylvester and Tweety Bird:
    “I thod I thaw Thakthin. I *did* I did thaw Takthin—in UAE!”

    Animal Farm comes to mind…’people are equal under the constitution”…however some are more equal than others. No piece of paper will ever eliminate money and connections, although the former does tend to take care of the latter.

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.
