    New Govt, New Memes

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 19/07/2019

    » By now, you probably have seen the lineup of new Cabinet under PM Prayut Chan-o-cha. And whether it fills you with delight or dread, this is our Cabinet now.

    2+2=5

    » Re: "NCPO mission over," (PostBag, July 18). RH Suga, the prime minister's National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) is indeed now gone.

    Speed up charter push

    News, Editorial, Published on 19/07/2019

    » Even though the Democrats have said constitutional amendment is incorporated as part of the coalition government's manifesto, it is pointless for them or other proponents of this agenda to expect the No.1 direct beneficiary of the 2017 charter, namely Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha, to give charter change his full support. The premier already made it clear on Wednesday that there was no rush to alter the constitution, while also cautioning that the process is "lengthy".

    Online trading spells massive job losses

    News, Chartchai Parasuk, Published on 18/07/2019

    » By writing about Sampheng, Bangkok's premier wholesale market, this column does not want to stress the weakness of the economy. It is pointless to keep whining about the sluggishness of the economy as it is already a well-known fact. Even the government can see the true picture of the economy by simply looking at its tax revenues. Poor-performing businesses do not pay taxes and jobless people also do not pay taxes.
