Democrats deny copying policies - The Nation, April 27, 2004
This amusing incident has been all over the news in the last day. MCOT had the full, sarcastic statement made by Thaksin about the Democrats' new populist policies: Asked about a new policy of the Democrat Party, which is emphasized on 'free education', the Thai leader said that it was a good development of the leading opposition party to change its policy to be people-oriented, adding that it was also a good development of the Thai politics that there was now another political party planning to use resources to bring about what are considered constructive development to the society and the nation, rather than using the resources to destroy rival parties. "I welcome the Democrat Party to the club", he said.
