    » The cabinet decided that instead of raising the bridge, it would lower the water; by an unknown vote, the ministers voted to tell the Industry Minister to lower the standards that make ID cards so darned smart, and accept dumber ones; the thing is that the Ministry of Internet Censorship in Thailand (MICT) has already ordered 26 million of blank not-so-smart cards, and, well, paid for them; the Industry Ministry wants smart cards, not partly smart ones, and rejected them; c'mon, said Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and some supporters - take these ones that are almost smart enough; if you believe that a lot of money for a certain political party is at stake in the smart-card contract - double the amount if they have to be reprinted by the heavily connected contractors V Smart Joint Venture - you are smarter than any ID card.
