BKK governor race
Sukhumbhand loses his temper
Democrat Party's Bangkok governor candidate MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra lost his temper during his speech at Lumpini Park last night.
Enraged by a question from the audience on the party’s choice for this governor race and conflicts behind, he succumbed to profanity. He repetitively used "Koo", a Thai pronoun for "me" which is generally barred in public.
"Asking me whether I would leave the party, it’s a contempt from someome who dares not to speak out. Why asking this question? It’s an insult. I belong to the party, I love the party, I risked my life for the party. Where would I go? If I leave, I would quit the Democrat Party.
"Asking this question is damn contempt. Don’t insult "Koo" again because "Koo" belong to Democrat Party," he said.
The speech was videotaped and the part showing profanity is now on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4r9rbD2qGg. At 3pm, the shortened version of the video clip has attracted over 17,000 views.
