Corruption is the enemy Thailand needs to tackle

A vote is of no use whatsoever to the moral poor - or the moral rich for that matter - if its primary purpose is to empower the ever escalating cycle of corruption where only the corrupt benefit.

Democracy has stalled in Thailand because it has been hijacked by corruption.

Tackle corruption first, tack-le it hard and tackle it at the highest and lowest of echelons.

Don't waste this unique opportunity. Stop the corrupt from further ridiculing democ-racy and human integrity, from hampering sustainable nation-wide advancement.

To all sides of the political and social divide, the enemy is corruption.

John Shepherd
