Ditch the puppets

20 08 2014

PPT kind of liked the suggestion by Supalak Ganjanakhundee in The Nation regarding the Assembly of dictatorship-chosen puppets.

Supalak is correct to say that “[n]obody expects the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) to be anymore than a rubber stamp in endorsing junta-guided laws and directives.”

Supalak is also correct to observe that “the NLA’s first session to consider the budget bill has already proved that it is bad for the Kingdom to have such a body.”

And, we think Supalak is also right to suggest that “… it would be better, as well as save time and money, if the junta issued all the laws and directives itself.” After all, the taxpayer seems to be funding “some 200 people to simply raise their hands and agree to all junta proposals…”.

The military dictatorship makes all the decisions so dump the expensive charade that is meant to persuade some that there’s something legal about the illegal regime.
