Former New Economics Party (NEP) leader Mingkwan Sangsuwan spoke for two hours last night (Feb 24) on the first day of the censure debate, stressing the lack of trust of Prayut Chan-o-cha, Prime Minister and Minister of Defence, due to his poor performance in economic management resulting in growing hardship for the general public. Mingkwan claimed many had lost their jobs since the beginning of his government and some even committed suicide.

 

In addition, Thailand has risen to the top spot in the ranking of inequality globally from eleventh place in 2015. , he said, adding that part of the problem could be attributed to the huge wealth of rich families in the country.

 

Meanwhile, the ‘eat, shop, spend’ economic stimulus only benefit the capitalists, he said, pointing out that Thailand is known for street foods but stalls disappear when the government moved to tighten control of the pavements.

 

The premier agreed with the issues raised and criticism from Mingkwan because they were constructive. However, in solving a problem, the decision is based on the legality and the joint decision of the cabinet, he said . He said critics should look at the government's perspective in tackling problems rather than focusing on failures.

Funny, when I read the headline I was wondering why the ex-leader of the Nana Entertainment Plaza (NEP) was talking with Prayut.

...and added "But you don't get it Mingkwan, that is the master plan and it's working a treat!"

 He doesn't seem to understand that there could have been just, fair and decent laws friendly to the citizens if he had created them.

Or not ,

because khun Mingkwan Sangsuwan certainly has some "cookies" which he would be delighted to distribute if khun Prayuth had the misfortune to want to dissolve his political party

That stupid smirk conjures up images in my head of the schoolyard bully who knows he's untouchable and there's nothing anybody can do about it. He's in the wrong and he knows it but uses the smirk as a default answer.

We'll see.

So Mingkwan should explore and accept the government's self-praise instead of an objective analysis.

 

Right. Got that...

 

Seems like a shame that Mingkwan cannot be taken as seriously as his comments...

Agree it seems unlikely, which spawned my comment on the guy. he's an opportunist who stumbled upon some of the realities of the Chanocha government (I believe that was the correct spelling before the muppet changed it to get a better numerical value from the monks.

 

Double muppet.
