There aren’t many columns that I enjoy reading in the Bangkok Post but K. Voranai Vanijaka constantly writes about relevant topics in such an honest manner. In his column today he hits the nail on the spot with the joke that is thai politics and their handling of the flood crisis in Thailand.

‘I’m sick of these politicians,” a man in his forties sighed. ”They come around, but they never help to do anything. They just talk big and pose for pictures.” He’s a factory worker from the Bang Pa-in industrial estate, which was inundated with water. He has lost his job.

”It’s what politicians do,” a young man said with a laugh. ”It’s to be expected.”
