As an extract from the Full Story reads, at the new parliament site, 'Scaffolding covers many of the walls. One staircase stank of urine.'

Piss poor performance, I'd say, and on a stellar-like 20 BILLION BAHT scale, already over double the budgeted cost. Will this country of spendthrift parliaments ever be able to draw the line at 'let's settle for ordinary, until we become stellar' ?

What a welcome opportunity for the junta to grant themselves a few more decades in power:

 

"Despite the prime minister's ceaseless devout prayers to Phra Siamdevathiraj, the deity has so far not responded favorably to help speed up construction of the new parliament building. Judging from the current construction pace, we are therefore unfortunately compelled to delay the election to July 2043."
