    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.

    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.

    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.

    Corruption endemic

    News, Postbag, Published on 08/06/2019

    » In my 30-plus years in Thailand, it has become quite obvious that corruption in its various forms has had a disastrous effect on the country through the failure of its institutions. Look up the effect of corruption on Google and immediately you will find that politicians, police and the judiciary are the institutions named as most affected. I have watched with disbelief as politicians, wealthy individuals and military leaders have broken laws, engaged in illegal activities and even caused deaths without any repercussions for their actions.
