    Premier’s songs fail to strike the right chord with the people

    Premier’s songs fail to strike the right chord with the people

    THE SUNDAY NATION

    OCCASIONAL songbird Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha recently released another tune, “Fight for the Nation”, aiming to encourage citizens to strive for a better tomorrow and promising he would “stand strong and never leave you alone”.

    In the song issued a few days before Songkran, the junta chief who enjoys penning lyrics pledges to work hard for the country no matter how hard his critics gnash at him.

    “Every day I’m tired,” sings the soldier who was recruited to handle the vocals, “but I keep it all inside, because my heart tells me to work for the nation.”

    I think there were a couple of words too many in Prayut's promise.....a more apt quotation would be "stand strong and never leave". Instead of railing against his critics, a more sensible person might actually LISTEN to them.

    As a career soldier he expects his orders to be obeyed without debate.
