Abhisit’s political grubbiness

12 01 2012

Yesterday PPT posted on compensation for those killed and injured in political violence between  2005 and 2010. At the same time, the cabinet approved a fund for bailing out some of the red shirts who remain imprisoned since being arrested under the Abhisit Vejjajiva regime.

As we noted, not everyone is ecstatic about it. In fact, some yellow shirts were  complaining bitterly. Now Abhisit himself has repeated some of the yellow-shirted nonsense doing the rounds.

The Bangkok Post reports that the disingenuous and mean-spirited Democrat Party “blasted the scheme saying it was not comprehensive enough and inadequate to bring about reconciliation.” Of course, the so-called Democrat Party doesn’t believe its own claim for they don’t believe in compensation for any red shirts and would prefer to have them locked up.

Opposition leader Abhisit showed his true colors and his nasty nature by adopting a smart-arsed and elitist pose when he “asked why the multi-billion-baht compensation scheme did not cover damaged parties in the far South and those involved in previous political strife.” He reportedly asked why “the compensation should also cover people affected by political violence in the Black May 1992 incident and the 1976 and 1973 student uprisings.”

In other words, the man who ordered the 2009 and 2010 crackdowns that saw nearly a hundred dead and thousands injured couldn’t give a damn. His disgusting and entirely unpleasant  and his political grubbiness was extended when he also asked ” if the compensation scheme would cover demonstrators who were involved in arson, attacks on government officials and the illegal use of war weapons in 2010.”

We assume that his was a calculated response for he has essentially plagiarized yellow shirt social media nastiness.

We’d normally say that this piece of political nastiness should be rebuked and that Abhisit should be ashamed of himself. But of  course, his nastiness is natural and real. Really, the man is beyond redemption.
