Reference: Abhisit urges PM to call general debate, Bangkok Post, June 14, 2008
It appears that Mr Abhisit is too polite to be an effective opposition in Parliament against the Incredible Hulk. We have neither an effective opposition bench nor a vigorous free press that can hold the government accountable and therefore we must depend on civil society to perform that critical function of democracy. That is why we need civic groups like the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD).
