BRITISH people have been wondering why people in Thailand are so into voting.
Pitched battles between opposition supporters and police have made the entire process of democracy look like it really matters to ordinary people, rather than being some egghead bullshit.
Tom Logan, from Reading, said: When I saw masked thugs at polling stations, I couldnt help think of when I went to vote.
Two old ladies sat at a formica desk in the empty hall of a closed primary school handing out pencils.
“I went in a cubicle, realised it felt a bit too much like an exam, and then took the pencil.
“That was over a decade ago, I haven’t bothered going back. Despite the free pencil.”
Political science lecturer Dr Mary Fisher said: The Thai electorate is trying to overturn massive government corruption which sees almost all the money raised in taxation appropriated by a handful of billionaires.
Over here, in contrast, were used to it.
In the UK we only vote when it could actually make a difference, for example in deciding the new limited-edition Kit Kat Chunky flavour.”
