Abhisit on ethics (yes, really)

23 11 2017

Under a headline “Abhisit evangelises on ethics,” the Bangkok Post reports that Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva called on the puppet political reform committee to prioritize “a set of rules governing the ethical behaviour of politicians is needed before the next elections.”

Anek: working for the junta

Abhisit is said toe be “sharing his opinions with the reform panel on politics headed by Anek Laothamatas.” Anek, once a communist, later styled himself as an academic before deciding that his vocation was politics. He took money from godfathers and set up a party that was dysfunctional and thumped at the polls. This political chameleon then became an anti-democrat and had a makeover that involves geeky glasses and propeller-like bow-ties and hawked himself to the military junta.

In the company of anti-democrats, Abhisit waxed lyrical about ethics and wondered if elections should be held: “It’s hard to say if it’s time to go ahead with the elections because we don’t know how people will behave…”.

Abhisit

When Abhisit speaks of ethics, he is using the side of his brain that eliminates his own unethical behaviors: presiding over the murder of dozens of protesters in 2010; fake military credentials; boycotting elections; coming to the premiership on the tip of a military bayonet; keeping his dual citizenship secret; supporting anti-democrats; disrupting parliament; accepting military “justice”; we could go on and on.
