Nepotism

4 03 2015

The Bangkok Post has reproduced a list of the 70 members of the puppet National Legislative Assembly who have hired relatives to “work” with them at taxpayers expense, ranging from about 15,000 baht to 24,000 baht per month each. That’s around 17-18 million baht a year, not including per diems, travel and other perks.

This nepotism has been defended by The Dictator, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, the Army boss (or second or third in charge, depending how you look at it) General Udomdej Sitabutr and puppet NLA chairman Pornpetch Wichitcholchai. Now puppet National Reform Council president Thienchay Kiranandana has “insisted” that puppet “lawmakers faced no legal restriction on hiring family members as personal aides, but said it was an ethical decision they had to make.

Clearly, they have already made it! Get those snouts in the trough while proclaiming nepotism legal and those with snouts “good people.” After all, royalists operate on different standards.

Many of these consumers of the junta’s largesse are already obscenely wealthy.
