The Moody Dictator: No annual nicknames for the cabinet this year

ScreenShot003

The annual tradition of mocking the cabinet with comical nicknames is not being undertaken this year. The government house press is wary of the cranky PM and his complaints about the critical press. Pravit (above) tweets his own nickname for Prayuth for 2013: “Moody Dictator”

Some examples of this tradition in the past:
2012: Thai Media Bestows Annual Political Nicknames: Government dubbed ‘Brother First’
2005: Press bestows annual nicknames on the cabinet: Thaksin Shinawatra “the Wizard with Weak Magic”
2004: Press corps’ annual nicknames revealed: Commerce Minister Watana Muangsook: “Ua Arthorn In-law”
