Not Voranai but equally as good ... Rule with Iron Fist. Lie Without Shame.
A long, long time ago, just one day after junta leader Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha staged his May 2014 coup, I was asked by Al Jazeera TV what I thought of him.
My reply was that Prayuth, as army chief, had repeatedly said on the record that he would not stage a coup, then staged one. I reminded viewers that it means either he abruptly changed his mind or lied. Either one means Prayuth is unreliable.
Fast-forward to the first days of 2017, 32 months after the songwriting general begged for “a little more time” and promised elections within a year, and find he still hasn’t lived up to his word.
The elections promised for 2017 may not happen after all.
This time the harbingers of news were members of the junta-appointed National Legislative Assembly. On Sunday, assembly member Gen. Somjet Boontanom said another 15 months were needed to pass necessary legislation before an election could be held. That would mean rewriting the “roadmap” for restoring democratic rule yet again.http://www.khaosodenglish.com/opinion/2 ... out-shame/
