Pheu Thai event on Junta failures draws prosecution threat

Good on the PT for starting to speak out; I hope that some/all of the pro-Democracy parties might speak up in support; this is a case where it is in the interest of all the Forces of Goodness to stick together, no matter if you like the PTP or not. While I could be wrong, I think it was one of the early Americans fighting the British who said "Either we hang to together or we hang separately". Should the pro-Democracy parties/groups allow themselves to picked off one-by-one, they will only have themselves to blame.

 

...“They declared that they would reform the political structure but ended up with a Constitution and organic laws that pull democracy far backward and destroy the political party system,” said the statement. “They declared they would reform the economic and social structure but ended up making people poorer. They have not had tangible success with a single reform agenda, despite having invested much of the budget.”...

 

While I understand that there is lingering dislike and distrust of the PTP (I can't argue with that and won't even try), I hope all will focus on the removal of the Junta as the main priority for the election; if the Thai people allow the Junta another four years to entrench themselves, it'll be almost impossible for the country to move forward and progress into modern times.

 

The Thai people deserve the leadership of their choice. They also deserve the right to remove that leadership if they so choose.

Col. Burin Thongprapai’s threat was made as the party held a news conference to highlight what it described as seven failures by the military regime four years on since the May 2014 coup d’etat.

I think he does protest too much.  The trenchoen in lieu of conversation.  The Thai military reminds me of a lost Amazonian tribe that has never been exposed to philosophy or critical thinking.   The military has allowed many other parties to gather, why not this one ?    The Thai military is openly engaging in a sham.

You too generous to call them government. Just call them non elected junta; more fitting.

As much as i agree with PT's stance, and as much as i despise the junta, PT basically had the best chance ever to do all the good things that Thailand needs but just couldn't help being corrupt as hell themselves.

 

Corruption and incompetence appear to be in the DNA of any and all political heavyweights here.

 

It's a disgrace that the junta is doing things like it is, but until people get off their <deleted> and make a stand to oppose it then it is very hard to sympathise

The stupid thing being if a political party actually tried to reform the system the army would probably orchestrate a coup under some pretense to stop them, as any meaningful reform would drastically affect the army.
