The sad thing is I think all of them in power somehow think its ok to steal and have no problems with nepotism. 

Well said, and that includes appoint 'yes sir, yes sir' scaly cronies and leeches to ministerial positions, throw them into the shxx at the deep end, watch them get 42 / 38 years in jail and then ignore them and flee. 

 

Such nice folks.

She does not need politics anymore. She and her corrupt cronies fleeced the country.

The fleeced many small rice farmers dry. Those small land holdings are now owned by large land owners

who bought up their farms after the rice scheme collapsed. Small land holders had borrowed from banks and money racketeers

based on Yinlucks promises. She is a toad of a woman and I hope she is never allowed back into the country.

Because that is what this headline is all about. Waiting out the statute of limitations like Mr Red Bullshite

You forgot to mention the farmers' suicides epidemic - a usual part of this sort of one note nonsense, a mixture of ignorance and deep-seated prejudice.

Do you have any proof any of the leading politicians did? 

 

If not, do you believe they all tell the truth then?

That is not the point. 

I asked for Yingluck. 

So there is no evidence nor even suspicions

Diversion to try to avoid the truth, your usual ploy...

Well, that is the way he comes over. And he's not completely alone by appearances. Evidently there are a few folk out there who are friends with un-named persons and who call upon them to suspend and delete in the name of those friendships. Strange days, but keeping in mind the provenance....

Don't hold your breath. Bar-room gossip is notoriously low of detail. and fact, generally.

She won't be the first to lie / break her promise to stay away. Many have done the same including her brother and Suthep. So she is in good company. 

It cannot and should not be a totally binding eternal  promise neither for her or Thaksin or Suthep. Any citizen of a democratic polity can engage in the political process in whatever way they want to (except by unconstitutional means but we all know the promises made and broken in that regard).  Any citizen can change their mind. All citizens have the right to engage in the political process. She has the right to disengage and re-engage as she chooses.

I won't be taking sides just taking pot shots at whoever is in the news for corruption or mismanagement at the time. I am sure I will be kept busy.

 

And I'm sure that will concern them not at all. read into that whatever you find.

Yes doubt she was personally corrupt but it looks more and more her family was in knee deep.

 

Before Boonsong one of the guys who got convicted refused to talk who gave the order for him to sign the fake G2G deals. We only knew that a company close to Thaksin himself had benefited.  Now he is talking and suddenly Thaksins other sister is on the run. 1 + 1 = 2. So it looks a lot like her family benefited from it. Then its hard to believe she did not know and covered it up. She did an half hearten investigation that did not turn up a thing. Later the fake G2G deals with over 33 billion of damages turned up. 

 

Just shows they are crooks even the ones you don't expect it from. Unless new clean politicians rise this will go on for ever. As for having doubts the Thais managing their country one has only to look at the UK and US to see its not the only country with problems (so much for white superiority feelings)

 

I truly hope the Thais can figure it out.

 

Indeed Rob.

 

Although she dismissed Boonsong she didn't cancel the fraudulent deals, which was interesting. She also repeatedly said that their was no fraud in the rice scheme or in her government. She allowed her brother to illegally Skype into cabinet meetings, set policy and shuffle "her" cabinet. Her management "skills" were somewhat lacking during the 2011 flood and her handling of the rice scheme as the self appointed chair was laughably feeble at best.

 

As you say, no proof but very circumstantial; and certainly not interested in investigating her own clan members.

 

UK, US, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Australia, all face issues politically at the moment. So yep, that bastion of democracy, "The West" seems to be crumbling.

Yes they do.

 

But aren't their laws, probably in many countries, that prohibit convicted criminals, whether serving their sentence or on the run as fugitives from holding office?
