    PPRP, earn our trust

    News, Postbag, Published on 14/07/2019

    » Re: "Dress code a non-issue", (Editorial, July 12). Effective organisations and countries prioritise issues to be attacked in terms of importance, putting the most important first; the Palang Pracharath Party, core of the new government, should do the same instead of focusing on minor items like dress codes for MPs. The PPRP wasn't voters' first choice until election rules were changed after votes had been counted, and took over four months to form a cabinet overflowing with scandal-tainted and/or Thaksin-affiliated faces.

    Good people bad laws

    Postbag, Published on 07/07/2019

    » Re: “Court to rule on PM’s eligibility”, (BP, July 6). While Jade Donavanik, the former adviser to the Constitution Drafting Committee’s comments that “the Constitutional Court ruling will be binding”, ring true, it is important to remember that such a legal precedent is subject to the caveat that applies to all laws: Merely being legal confers neither rightness nor justice.

    Political hodgepodge

    News, Postbag, Published on 08/07/2019

    » Re: "The evolving Thai political fault lines", (Opinion, July 5). I must agree with everything Thitinan Pongsudhirak has pointed out. This military-led conservative coalition distrusts open politics and a fair, democratic game of elections, constitutions, and political parties and civil society.

    Class system to blame

    News, Postbag, Published on 06/07/2019

    » Perhaps it's a case of being "inside the bowl" that stops Thais from seeing the major obstacle holding them back from a true democracy but as a foreigner it looks obvious. From the time they are born Thais are indoctrinated with the belief that there are classes in society and a child must know where they belong.
