The whole country has been duped, not just this farce, but they have been duped by this shambles of a government for six consecutive years. The sooner they depart, the better for everyone, except them

I dare say closely followed by a new panel to study the debate of the parliament debate, to return within a month for a new debate on the debating of the original debate debate

They just continue to stoke the fire burning in the masses who derest this Government.  I truly believe this vile government is just waiting for all hell to break loose so they can place the county un

Senators could afford a sigh of relief on Thursday after Parliament voted to delay a decision on six motions for charter change.

 

Instead, a committee was set up to study the motions for Constitution amendments ahead of a vote on the motions in one month’s time.

 

Opposition Pheu Thai and Move Forward MPs walked out in protest after MPs and senators voted 431 to 255 to postpone the amendment vote and then 432-255 to set up the committee.

 

To pass, a motion needs the votes of at least 84 senators.

 

The committee set up to examine the proposed amendments will consist of 45 members – 15 senators and 30 MPs from the opposition and ruling coalition parties. Pheu Thai and Move Forward refused to nominate members from their parties. A rally of about 1,000 protesters gathered outside Parliament to press for charter change.

It would be akin to turkeys voting for Christmas.

so they are  ALL mass debaters,  Ill agree  with that!

Don't forget the numerous committees and committees within committees etc., etc.,  all just delay tactics. 

 

IMHO unfortunately too much delay will possibly bring more mass protests and possibly violence (but I hope not) then more military control.

 

There's a long way to go before we see any real changes.

Waiting on the tanks and checkpoints like in 2014.

You can feel it coming....... If it doesn't we're all DOOMED !

Very stupid thing to do. Doubtless it will play into the hands of the protesting students and anger them more. Probably they will get support from other people as it not looks like the Government has no intention of changing the Charter.
