Recommended Posts

Mr. Pichet Sathirachavan, leader of the small party, told the media yesterday that they had decided to break away from the coalition to join the independent opposition camp with the New Civilized party. He said his party is upset over a remark, allegedly made by Deputy Agriculture Minister Thammanat Prompao, the government’s fixer, describing the ten smallest parties in the government as “monkeys which need to be fed with bananas every now and then”.

A remark that will come to haunt the leadership.... PM didn't want to say anything as he didn't want to escalate an already tricky situation.... 

Reminds me or the "Ratner" saying....

The only source for those bananas is drug trade. 

There are documented multiple testimonies (including in the parliamentary debates) from parliamentarians being offered 120mln before and even after the election.

There is no chance that many billions, possibly tens of billions, were legitimate. They are black market money.

Agricultural minister is handling all transaction, on behalf of the PM.

How about the ten weakest junkies still need to be spoon fed their morphine now and then.
Or is that a bit too close to the bone for an ex heroin dealer and importer?

Post WW II, the generals have been stuffing their pockets with anything and everything going.

Teak, forest encroachment and theft, oil, ganga, heroin, opium, meth, guns, gamblingprostitution, human trafficking.

The list is endless.

The possibilities are endless.

It is a SE Asian mafia in the uniform of the armed forces.

Somehow, referring to these guys as "parliamentarians" seems to be an insult to the term.
