Thanks for the memories - tearful sacked tourism minister goes online after PM boots her out

Sacked Tourism and Sports minister Kobkarn Wattanavarangul has gone online with a two page letter after PM Prayut tossed her out in his cabinet reshuffle.

 

The letter is full of self-praise for the wonderful job she did during her three years at the helm.

 

Late last week she was in floods of tears when reporters suggested she was history but now the news is confirmed she posted on her official page in a hand written letter with the tagline:

 

"Su Su Su na kha!" (Fight on! OK!)

 

In the letter she speaks of her "valuable" 3 years bringing the public, government and private tourism sectors together.

 

She says how she raised revenue and increased tourists' daily expenditure.

 

She spoke of how much she had done for sports, medical and wellness and wedding and honeymoon visitors and also mentioned "ASEAN connect" without explaining what that actually meant.

 

She also said that under her tenure, sports - a great love of the Thais - had been promoted as Thailand became a "sports dream destination" and a "sports hub". She suggested that more Thais were now engaging in sport and a "Sports University" was now in place.

 

She encouraged those that follow her to keep up the good fight.

 

Sanook reported that many people went online to give the former CEO of Toshiba her support.

 

In her farewell letter, Khun Kobkarn did not mention her stated aim to dismantle the sex industry that figured in the news of July 2016 or her oft stated desire to stop accidents on boats.

 

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha has now replaced her with Chulalongkorn University and Harvard educated Weerasak Kowsurat.

Can anyone say how she actually got the job in the first place  ?

To quote Bugs Bunny, "What a maroon!"

 

When people ride high on the wave they forget things such as humility. 

 

Good riddance of a self-righteous pompous mp.

True or not - you can't say you did a wonderful job. You lose all or any credibility. 

 

Learn to be humble. And don't cry, for heaven's sake.

Not sure why I somehow feel no pity for her. Could it be because of the tiny phrases "self-praise" and "wonderful job," perhaps? Is that where the crocodile tears stem from? Wallowing in self-pity?

 

And the "great love of sports" for many Thais is actually restricted to betting on it; or maybe an occasional evening round of takraw. That's about it.

If she was doing such a wonderful job, perhaps she can explain why she got sacked? That normally happens when you are failing badly.
