This party ain't gonna go anywhere simply because their young buck of a leader and his mega rich parents were huge supporters of Thaksin, his Dad even served in the Thaksin government and the family benefited financially from that. Do you really think the real movers and shakers forming this new government are going to let a Thaksin clone into their midsts? This young buck is outta luck and he made a fatal mistake by joining up with Pheu Thai Party in the first place. He rolled the dice and came up craps and now he has to face what's coming his way. Just goes to prove once again that money doesn't buy you brains and common sense.

If you want to pour cold water on Thanathorn, at least get some facts right. His uncle served in the early TRT government. His dad died in 2002. He didn't join PTP but join the anti military coalition. He rolled the dice by joining politics against a corrupt regime and won handsomely in the election. A big success for a novice party with MPs that were not incumbent politicians. He is not daunted by the intimidation of the junta and should be praised and not faulted by you.

Yea, he's so stupid. Why doesn't he just offer the same old same old as everyone else. Why is he sticking to his word? Why doesn't he just make empty promises and break them like the Dems and Bumjaithai. 

 

Thailand doesn't need fresh blood with new ideas that are supposed to benefit its people. It needs smart boot lickers who are only in it for themselves.

A constituency in Chiang Mai, the Shins stronghold and PTP don't win??

They were disbarred for giving a monk some money at a temple.

We now place you on the TVF 'most uninformed post' shortlist 2019. Well done.

Or to respect and observe the law, which makes it illegal to give donations as part of an election run up. Not difficult to understand by most, but ignored by folks who have no morals nor ethics. 

 

I wonder how the paymaster reacted, after all CM is his home town and I wonder how deeply big sister (now fled) was involved. 

 

 

But not illegal to receive watches from dead friends?

Are you seriously telling me it's illegal to give a monk money?  how long have you lived here?  you should know better than defend the obvious bias. Shame on you.

I didn't say it's not illegal to receive watches or anything remotely like that, from dead friends, who would? 

in fact several times i've made highly critical comments about many 'items' attached to this scaly man, and I strongly support all suggestions he has no place to be in such a position.

 

There is nothing wrong at all with making donations to temples - the welfare support system for millions of poor Thai folks but I suggest you miss the point about this incident.

 

All politicians (and the great FF young guy is on a learning curve) know when to be careful and not expose themselves and their party to unneeded criticisms / actions, etc., and especially in the current situation with you know who ruthlessly taking totally inappropriate actions.  I assume the guys party (and their paymaster) would very much prefer that incidents like this are well avoided right now.  

 

And yes I have lived here a very long time (3 decades +) and I am well acquainted with monks and temples and Thai politics. 

 

How about sticking to the facts, your comments about 'shame on you' are not appropriate and not needed.

My 'shame on you' is not aimed at all your positions just this one. You know that all the politicians would have been to a temple and donated during the election campaign. The rule is ABSURD just as the 75,000 votes gets one MP as does the loser @ 1,800 votes. The system is rigged in favour of the Junta period.

Can't find the link now but I did read yesterday that the ASEAN community have fired a warning shot across the juntas bows warning them to lay off the FF and stop dragging up trivial misdemeanors - quite strongly worded as well. 

Details on the breaking news list for the paper that can't be mentioned about 3 days back. Yes strongly worded and to the point.

That said, his post was a remarkable display of self righteous backwards bicycle riding though, wasn't it!

I think that was an ASEAN human rights group. I have a link in Thai. Not sure how much sway they have. I'm thinking very little.

Which leader of the 10 ASEAN countries gives a flying flip about human rights?

1. Hun Sen -Opposition jailed and forced into exile

2. Brunei - recent legislation for capital punishment for gays

3 Vietnam, Laos no elections

4. Myanmar ethnic cleansing of Rohingya- zero objection from the Burmese

5. Philippines -elected a violent populist who has overseen a large number of extrajudicial killings

6. that leaves Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore- I can't see human rights playing any significant role in their governance.
