What's interesting Eric, is that this again demonstrates that people vote for a person rather than a party. Which is one reason why people feel safe changing parties whenever it suits them. Hierarchical patronages with clan like loyalties.

 

One does wonder what police rank the gentleman was holding when he turned Red Shirt law breaker?

PTP has conceded before the election that they will lose Kampong Phet because of the populist policies like welfare card and the 3 years moratorium on loans. These were powerful reasons for the lost; not so

much due to the person. Let’s see the by-election which will reveal a lot.

How does that compare with the likes of Chalerm etc etc?

Equally scaly but he didn’t crossed over so he gets a brownie point.

Meaning that:

 

1. The party basically has no social manifesto to build and maintain a civil society, which of course el would say is not true, but it is true. 

 

2. Easier for on man (or woman) to gain local credibility and keep winning but there's no overall positive and broad civil society gains.

This scaly thrash was embraced warmly by your scaly  government plus one convicted drug dealer. That pales beyond unethical. 

 

Not my scaly government el, but of course it fits your ends to keep claiming that.

My word, you've got a job to keep up with these things. We've got a politician being sent down for 4 years. A law maker who turned law breaker. A former red-shirt, an MP and a Pol Lt-General, who couldn't see what was wrong in closing down an ASEAN meeting, and amazingly then recruited by the military in civilian disguise PPRP who now has to wave him goodbye. All morals and ethics out the window with these guys, every man for his bank balance.

But the entertainment value is great !

"...and a Pol Lt-General, who couldn't see what was wrong in closing down an ASEAN meeting, ..."

and add 'with serious violence and several people seriously bashed'.

And lets not forget: No criminal PMs and MPs who only think about enriching themselves. And no clones of them.
