Over 60 percent of respondents to poll think Opposition debate was useless

More than half of the respondents to a recent Suan Dusit Poll, taken between September 19th and 21st, said that the Opposition debate last Wednesday against Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, over his incomplete oath recital, was useless.

 

62.76% of 1,164 respondents told pollsters from Suan Dusit University that they felt the Opposition’s debate was useless because 41.6% said there was no clarification from the prime minister, 26.49% said it was because no vote was taken after the debate. Additionally, 23.18% said it failed on economic and bread and butter issues, 21.19% thought it was a purely political issue which has nothing to do with the people and 19.87% said it was simply a waste of time.

 

37.24% of the respondents, however, thought the debate was useful because 34.74% said they learned factual information from the debate, 23.26% got to understand the viewpoints of the opposing sides, 20% learned about the swearing-in ceremony, 15.79% said they now know more about the MPs and 12.63% said it provided direct access to information.

According to the 2019 Democracy Index Thailand does not have democracy, not even a "Flawed Democracy."

Just a throwaway line used by a prominent leader. ruler.

Seems to me that the subject matter, an incomplete oath taking, is the real issue. How will that possibly have any effect on people's lives? Perhaps the subject of the current Minister of Transport allowing death trap mini vans to continue to take passengers after their effective sell by date may have livened things up. 

 

But after all, I suppose that avoiding conflict is the real issue here, perhaps they should have thrown appropriate parliamentary attire into the mix too as they did a month ago. Now that really was riveting!!! And we learned that the appropriate dress for attending parliamentary debates was, according to some, Western!!!! Apparently sensible loose fitting garments that were designed by Thais to help cope with the high temperature here, simply do not pass muster. Respect can be gained only by wearing a Western suit and tie. I'd be laughing if it was not so serious. Farce...

“Bread and butter issues”.

Typical white supremacist! That should be “Rice and fish issues”.
