Hun Sen’s icompetency

Spotted this on 2Bangkok, originally from Khmerization. I think it’s worth reposting, even if only for the future reference.

Thaksin appalled by Hun Sen’s economic knowledge (3)

Thailand’s former premier Thaksin Shinawatra who has recently been appointed as economic advisor to Cambodia’s prime minister Hun Sen is reportedly appalled the latter’s poor economic knowledge and stubbornness. When Thaksin asked Hun Sen what measures he has taken to counter the ongoing world economic and financial crisis, Hun Sen was unable to speak clearly. Hun Sen tried to say there was nothing he could do and he had to only wait for the United States and Europe to “resolve their problems.” When Thaksin asked him about the size of the economic stimulus package the Cambodian government has adopted, Hun Sen just scratched his head. And when Thaksin asked him about the social safety net the Cambodian government has put in place to protect the population, Hun Sen just asked back, “What is this?”

Is he really that ignorant?

The source is not cited, however.

Not long ago Sam Rainsy’s spokesman complained about quality of Thaksin’s advice, apparently even that goes over Saddam Hun Sen’s head.
