Prayut’s moment of truth arrives

The prime minister can be forgiven if he assumes that his previous problems were “political”, albeit ones that had more to do with ideology and power play than genuine well-being of the people. He will be disastrously wrong, however, if he makes the same assumption about the current trouble.

 

COVID-19 is very good at separating real problems from “less-real” ones. It has done so with many countries and is doing so with Thailand. In the process, the government’s biggest weaknesses have been exposed, a situation that opinion polls and even the administration’s supporters agree cannot be handled or diverted by rhetoric. In short, Prayut will have to bite the bullet.

 

Corrupted immigration authorities and illegal gambling houses have combined to allow the coronavirus to wreak havoc in Thailand again. Although this does not mean that stricter measures on foreign labour and widespread gambling would have made the country 100 per cent safe from the second wave, there is no denying that the government’s weakest spots had made the door much wider open.

I'm sorry, using the words "Prayut" and "truth" in the same sentence does not compute!!   Not even when it means "day of reckoning!"

The problem with 'truth' is of course not confined to the PM or his government, or even to the whole phalanx of feudals & authoritarians who run & own the country.   Thai culture gen

"moment of truth" does it exist in anything related to the Government here

Something that he pledged he would wipe-out after the election... dereliction of duty?

They are the protectors of the trough, they won't go anywhere in a hurry! Maybe a coup would unseat them! Who has the firepower wins!

 

 

And the nod from up high, that's unless it's a real coup as in "Do can hear the people sing........"
