Waiting for Yingluck to start giving back

- +

In March this year, there was an article detailing Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s globetrotting. It concluded that since she took office in August 2011 she had visited about 30 nations - that's about 1.6 foreign trips for each of her 19 months on the job. 

Since March, she has continued spending a lot of taxpayers’ time and money globetrotting. She’s the number one public servant, so it’s our time and money she’s spending. 

Understandably, it’s good public relations. And politically, it’s a sound strategy to stay away from Thailand, far away from the mud slinging, the scandals and the controversies. Keep her image clean, at least relatively, and get through to the next general election.
