 . . . in order to help economically struggling people during Covid-19.

And exactly how will a semi-useless graduate (rescued from imminent unemployment and having enjoyed 4 years smart-phoning at some of the planet's worst universities) help a struggling person? . . . by conjuring up work for him/her from out of nowhere? . . . by bestowing them with new skills? Tell me, Mr Prime Minister Prayut, exactly how.

This is how a good chunk of Prayut's recently transferred budget money, from 'health' to 'emergency needs', is soon to be put into the hands of 28 state agencies - aka cash syphons - for them to morph into recruitment agencies, to set these graduates on the road to Thailand's pandemic salvation.

The whole thing will be a financial disaster; a disaster that Prayut and Co will find themselves quietly sweeping under the carpet when people start asking tricky questions. You know . . . those questions that make him loose his temper, when he tries to get alcohol spays or banana skins to come to his rescue.

Cynical as ever, I will forecast that, in terms of return-on-investment, this scheme will register 20% or less, i.e. at least 80% will simply disappear down the usual gaping black hole where most of this junta-clone regime's money disappears to.

In a 3-word nutshell, this scheme will be a 'monstrously expensive soundbite' . . . a MES in other words.
