it was el ninio year, and exceptionally strong.

Already in march rainfall was 344% above average.

End of May there were already major floods, with deaths 

And the government continued to hold water in the dams all throughout  until October. Then, when it was time to use resources such as the Mahasawat, Pomelo growers in Nakhon Pathom paid in order to divert the water from their fields (and also an Old Dutch Mill dairy plant) and pour the water on Thawi Watthana instead. Tens of thousands of peoples homes flooded for almost three months in order to save trees and a dairy.

Such floods happen statistically every 50 years. 

Yes, but it is always the fault of the oppostion.

Where's the sarky button??

It was a strong La Nina year *not* El Nino, this year is a weak La Nina year

Once in power she faced many difficulties in getting things done in an expedient manner.

I don't know, she didn't hang around getting the rice pledging scheme up & running.

was wiki is mistaken:

"Flooding was still ongoing by late-August, as heavy rains were expected to continue for longer than usual due to the effect of El Niño."

Put half the country on a major flood plain and then keep adding to it, what do you expect when a major flood arrives. It's simply nature in action. 

Who will they blame next time?

Indeed. It was most certainly a generational event. 

A catastrophic natural disaster that lent itself to impossible odds for any government infrastructure to handle - past or present.

I did what my brother told me to do.

I have no idea about those things. Or did you really think only because I am the small sister of Thaksin I know what I am doing?

That was not Yingluks fault.

 

The then democrat governor  of Bangkok refused to open drainage  gates to allow water to flow through the city to pumping stations south of the city. Downtown Bangkok remained dry as a result whereas your house and mine got flooded.

They won't listen. It was Thaksin, Thaksin, Thaksin... pathetic.

Stupid post and TOTALLY inaccurate.  Any proof?  data?  or did the court find her innocent recently?  

You really need to learn to read..

I stated that her 'puppet master' had stripped the country's resources, so any court decision about Yingluck has no bearing on the Master Shin's  actions.

Old Misdirection Theatre. 

When in doubt, use the Shinawatras as a buffer. 

 

And always seems to work.

And then there are still people out there who still think Thaksin and his little sister did everything right.

They are both wanted criminals and they should be in jail.

In all fairness to Yingluck, she had to wait for her puppet master's instructions and he was in no rush to help a country that he had already stripped the resources from.

 

 

unlike in 2010, the 2011  rainy season started in March (as in 2021).

despite bhumipol dam getting 10x of rain already at that time, officials were not releasing any water. 

That can be seen as sabotage for the government which was surely be formed too late to mitigate any damage already done.

The democrat party clearly already knew they will lose this election, as they did loose previous ones. So it was a political revenge and revenge on voters. The bangkok governor was playing the same game through.

 

You should not play partisan politics on deaths of thousands. People were dying from affects of this flood for many months after it ended - with diseases and illness originating from that time.

Thailand has lost over 15% of it's gdp

For God's sake, take off your  red tinted spectacles.

Yingluck, Thaksin, Prayut, Samak, Chuan, they're all as corrupt as each other and everyone of them bent the country over and shafted it.

Why are you so intent on defending corrupt politicians?
