Where would the generals get their house servants from if that happened?

They would have to spend their OWN money like everybody else does. I have no doubt that they can get an allowance from the military budget to do so.

Rodchomphu have submitted a draft for a revised Conscription Act calling for military service to be voluntary except in dire circumstances.

Normally I would agree with this concept, however, in a country like Thailand where discipline is in short supply and the feelings of others abused it could result in even a wider spread of lawlessness throughout the country.

Members of the opposition Future Forward Party led by party-list MP Lt-Gen Pongsakorn Rodchomphu

As he is now a civilian MP should the title Lt-Gen be dropped?

FF seems to be dreaming too much.... with the current structure of the country. The military is used to protect everything and there is a huge power shift going on this year. Some regiments of military has been transferred under private control.

Yes, we are now witnessing how brave the army here really is. Relinquishing control of different regiments without even a whimper of protest.
