Thaksin must borrow money to be prosperous


From Manager, April 11, 2013
Thaksin Shinawatra: We must borrow and be indebted to have projects constructed so that our country is prosperous…
Bird: But while on the last election campaign, you said you can do all that without borrowing… liar.
Caption: In this country, only birds and crows know this guy is a liar.
[To call a person a “buffalo” is an insult meaning they are stupid. Here it is used to refer to the pro-Thaksin Red Shirts. From the beginning of THaksin’s rise as a politician, he has used opposition to borrowing as a key way to criticize the opposition. More: The Irony of Massive Government Borrowing]
