Good man Mr Anutin. I like him.

A crony health minister with no professional health background and severe diarrhea of the mouth, flies here at taxpayer expense and flies back. A man of the people

Nice PR stunt. Time for another rant?

Flys private plane, yes.  Attending conference on tourism & economic tourism.  What is the difference between both? As long hotels, beaches, are closed, Tambon lock downs, the alcohol sales ban, that long no need to talk about tourism. Well, the minister had a expensive fresh air day out. All could have been done by video conferencing, minister. Thanks for not behaving social distance.
