Vultures fighting over the corpse of democracy

A new election has been announced and vultures are already abandoning their parties to join Pheu Thai, hoping for a share of the spoils by joining the party most likely to win.

This is not democracy, but loophole democracy, and it's time to plug the holes.

What we need is a party with a clear ideology, not empty promises for gullible voters.
