Covid plus lack of democracy ‘spells disaster’ for Thailand

Recommended Posts

It is a very easy time to point out (jump on em while they are down,) these things that we have known all along (& so have they)

It is another to get a country in which the majority are uneducated, easily led by a bit of corruption to come up with a workable solution.

The events of the last 3 moths have at least shown some respect for authority with a positive result (so far).

Not sure Thailand is ready for a full democratic Government (whatever that means)

Just now, Mung said:

And so an army general that clearly did not win enough seats, being in power still is a democracy? What about the people of the UK being allowed to voice their opinion about any political or royal figure, without the threat of punishment; democracy? I would like to see you head outside and voice your opinions on the street of Thailand, and see how that goes for you 

If you will excuse me, you are exhibiting a lack of knowledge of Thai history and what works and does not work here.  History tells us that a partnership between the elite, the First family and the Military has produced the most stable governments in Thailand.  It has happened over a dozen times in recent history, 15 if memory serves me right and it will go on happening. Comparing Thai 'democracy' to the UK system is disingenuous of you, as you must be aware of this.

Let's make a deal.  You can keep your non-democratic government--just get the damned Baht back to its 10-year average.
