Please find me a definition of a subsidy that says it can be self financing, off the government budget, not require any financial and management accounts, and yet still be funded by tax payers money? I'm waiting

 

 

Answer a question with a question. :sleepy: Classic avoidance. Just a simple reply to say you made a mistake will do. Thank you.

Don't be so silly. 

 

Do you see the difference between the Shin Rice Scheme and the agricultural subsidies offered by this, previous and many other governments around the world?

 

Nothing to do with avoidance. If you can't see why the was taken off budget, touted as self financing, and seemingly without any accounting, then you're either blind or don't want to.

This trial is a good lesson for all Thai politicians to steer clear of any policy resembling rice market manipulation.

Actually not arguing for the sake of arguing (but you my like to throw that at some others here).

 

I made a comment which I believe is very true and very relevant.

I guess the impending verdict on Boonsong,  Poom et al who are clearly as guilty as hell of facilitating the fake G2G rice sales is likely to impact the way the verdict goes in Yingluck's case.   In fact, it would have been logical to wait for the verdict in the other case before charging Yingluck.  If the others are guilty the case for convicting her of dereliction of duty seems much stronger as it will be very clear that serious fraud was committed by her ministers and others while she was both prime minister and chairman of the rice policy committee, even though she rarely attended meetings of the latter.   However, the NAAC and the prosecutors have made clear from the outset that there is no connection between the two cases.  That is a strength and a weakness, since it doesn't help Yingluck avoid conviction, if Boonsong and his co-conspirators get off and conversely should not help the prosecution's case, if they are convicted.  

 

On the other hand, there is earthly reasonable way that Boonsong and friends can escape conviction, unless the NAAC and the prosecutors have completely ballsed up the case (perhaps deliberately).  So the greater likelihood is that 1) Boonsong et al will be convicted and 2) even though this shouldn't legally effect the ruling on Yingluck, it is hard to imagine that it wouldn't.  So I think that things are not looking good for Yingluck's chances.  However, the good news for her is that the new constitution gives her the automatic right to appeal, which her brother could not - hence his sudden interest in Olympic sports just before the verdict.  Whatever happens in this ruling, the case will drag on for years, as whichever side loses will appeal.   Personally I think the right to appeal should be given only for crimes committed after the new rules came into effect but that is not the case here.

hopefully they will have heaps of toilet paper available because a hell of a lot of sh*t will be coming out of her mouth, will be interesting to see if she can actually stick to the subject at hand and not go off on one of her tangents as per usual, will be good for a laugh at least

Yingluck plans(1) to make(2) her own(3) closing statement. Three blatant lies in one short sentence: she 'plans', she will 'make',  write,  her own 'statement', or any, by herself? Only the ones worshipping could, eventually, believe any of this!It, alas, tells a lot about her 'personality', or rather the lack of it, IMO. Sadly, this lady has been used and abused by Thaksin for the sake of the Shins' tribe, but, at least for what her political 'career' is concerned, for her, the remote-controlled puppet/clone, to come out pretending she is able to 'plan' something, to 'make'-write a 'statement' by herself, and that this would be 'her own' choice of content, is quite arresting. And when she would be able to, one could ask why she has never really done so, when it mattered, when she was PM, when she was 'heading' the Rice Committee, when she could have done 'the right thing', taken personal initiatives, ...like only to decide to attend the sessions of Parliament when important subjects were on the table, or to lead (...by being there) Government cabinet meetings when important decisions had to be made, to be at least a couple of times present at a meeting of the Rice Committee she had 'chosen' to chair!

It should be supposed that Yingluck is a mature, educated, responsible person. Let's not come back to the, erm, 'circumstances' which have put her on top of the PTP list of candidate-MPs, BUT she decided to accept to become Thailand's PM, and she later 'chose' (well, at least accepted) to chair the Rice Committe. Accepting to be(come) the puppet/clone, of any individual or group of people, to be kept away/absent from every important/risk-factor meeting(*), that, IMO, is dereliction of duty, on a much larger scale than about the rice scam she is being judged about today, or even high treason, taking into consideration the oath she pledged...

(*) For me, keeping Yingluck away, making her to be absent, from anything of importance that could make her clearly involved in, or have an obvious responsibility in, was clearly, all the time, part of a meticulously designed strategy, aimed at, probably, protecting her little person from being compromitted in (maybe later made) 'questionable' decisions, and, for sure, avoiding her to possibly take some kind of personal initiative which would possibly compromit any of the plans forged by Thaksin and his Shins' clan.

Now to all her sympathizers, fans, worshippers: when you consider Yingluck a mature, educated, responsible person, when you are honest, you can't escape the logical conclusion she has done wrong, in all of her political 'career', till today (being so-called 'barred'...) and deserves to be punished for it, in a way corresponding to the high level of functions she accepted to carry.

No, she made mistakes, she adopted and pursued bad policy. That doesn't make her criminally liable or negligent, any more than the current mob for their even more abysmal policies and extravagances.

'Prbkk', please spare us the 'red' rhetoric, like the worn-out 'But, but, look at what the others do'! It is not about what the junta and the so-called Bangkok elite has been, is, doing, ...or hasn't done, isn't doing (no excuse for them either IMO). Here, it is about Yingluck, and what she didn't do, or should have done, as a MP, as the PM, as the chairwoman of the Rice Committee, and, today, as a barred politician. And: 'honesty, integrity, fair play, decency, commitment to the community': who then? Yingluck? You can't be serious! LOL
