When will Pheu Thai clean up their own house and get rid of the corrupt Shinawatras?

Thailand needs new and clean politicians and politics. Not more of the same old failures. 

You mean the Shin's are still in complete control and run every day to day operation of Pheu Thai, I think if anything they are a name only that brings fear to certain people, that's like saying Obama and Bill Clinton still run the Democratic party.  Although I do agree that all politics needs to be cleaned up, I hate politics in general.  This issue of the current government being criticized for imposing tough economic measures that has caused high unemployment, and stagnated the economy is long over due.  There has not been one debate in the senate or house here regarding any of the austere measures that have been placed out there.  In another side note floating more money to the government pawn shop is just more killing off of the lesser than peoples.

No, Pheu Thai are not remotely like the Democratic Party; or any other political party in the Western democracies. They are a wholly owned family controlled political vehicle for the extended Shiniwattra family, in-laws and close allies.

 

So you think the criticism of the Thai government is long overdue? Do you also think the US, UK, and EU member states' governments have done such fantastic jobs? Would you prefer their figures and current situations?

It is up to the Thai people not one more farang.  They want to elect a three legged cat then so be it.  A shin would be a huge improvement at this time.  Shin's never messed with business or tourism.  The army has tinkered with both from day one.  My and other working expats are betting on Vietnam.   Its rapidly getting back to normal.  

 

You are joking! Shins creamed off from everything they could. Left things alone - for a price.

Better 100 Shinawatras than 1 prayuth or 1 picface or 1 mafia suthep  etc.

Really?

How long are you already in Thailand to have acquired this knowledge?

Or did you ask your tilac to tell you your opinion?

Sure it's up to Thai to vote. But those Thai should not be surprised to have corrupt politicians when they vote for corrupt politicians.

I honestly believe that Khun Abhisit was an honourable man, as was Khun Anand Panyarachun. Unfortunately the latter had agreed in an emergency to take the position for only one year, and equally unfortunate was the fact that Abhisit did not have the backing of the military, who probably even back then were having ideas of being taking over power. The way things are going in Thailand right now, it would not be surprising to see some political opposition forming a strong base, hopefully having absolutely no ties to a recent family 🙂
