He's on the take too, raking it in. 🙏

The real question is, have the Thai people finally gotten sick and tired of the constant corruption, malfeasance, shenanigans, lies, deceit, power grabbing, manipulation, and have the covid related problems created by this administration soured them even more?

 

If so, we should start seeing alot of discontent now that the KPIP (keep Prayuth in power) decree is being lifted. If not, there is no hope, whatsoever, for the future of the nation. 

They will ban individuals, parties and movements; if things get lairy then possibly shoot a few - unless this bunch are ejected, and of course even if rejected at the polls they will still have to be physically driven from power, then there is no hope for the nation. 

 

Ultimately it could get very messy...

saying that his term as the Prime Minister started after the 2016 constitution was implemented on April 6, 2017.

It started in 2014 when the then King said so.

The ‘justification’ that the Constitutional Court had given for the 1994 convicted drug dealer – Thammanat Prompao, was that he did not commit the crime in Thailand and therefore he was eligible to continue as the Deputy Agriculture Minister.

Should be changed to "Kangaroo court"

Thai voters have the memory of a goldfish and will follow the prevailing current of baht notes on the ballot paper.

Who was in charge of the country between "the coup that never was" in 2014 and 2017? Maybe it was the unelected PM's sleeping partner. :cheesy:

What does 'spell boon' mean please?

I think the editor means that Prayut will meet with Daniel Boon in order to bring the natives under his control. Or something like that🤪

Oh dear. 

Another one that is plainly unable to understand the obvious - for generations.

There are so many things one can do to address fatigue or boredom. Exercise, good diet, green drinks, etc.

Ya Dong works for some, if one is too weary of the repeated rhetoric.
