Over 80% of respondents to a recent opinion poll are against a cabinet reshuffle, believing that the political shakeup would fuel public suspicion that it would be intended to enable politicians to enrich themselves from the huge loan, to be secured by the Government to cushion the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Super Poll.

 

The survey took the opinions of 1,871 people, via telephone and field surveys, from June 1st to June 5th.

 

It shows 85.1% of the respondents are suspicious of the motives of Palang Pracharat politicians in caling for a reshuffle, believing that it would enable exploitation of the Government’s huge loan for self enrichment.

A little surprised, don't Super Poll usually come out with very pro-establishment results.

Why do these "public suspicions" emerge only now, although arbitrary cabinet reshuffles have happened again and again in the past and in ALL previous governments?

 

It's not like Thai politicians and/or cabinet ministers have never before "enriched themselves". In fact, they have ALWAYS done it. The "enriching themselves" prospect is the sole factor why they have become politicians in the first place and why they scramble to land cabinet posts. It's their only motivation and goal. Actually serving the people comes a very, very, very distant second.

 

And if the Thai public has been under the impression that previous cabinets were even one iota less prone to "enriching themselves", then I must say that the Thai public is pretty naive. Even the Thaksin cabinets - which nowadays almost seem to enjoy mystical status, as Thai memories are notoriously short - were choke full of these crooks.

2 trillion baht loan floating around might have something to do with it

2 trillion - I thought this government were proposing 1.5 trillion loan?

 

The last PTP regime were trying to secure 2.2 trillion loan. Only they didn't have the Covid excuse. I bet they're puking with envy!!
