Local Politics

I try not to make judgements on local politics but this can sometimes be a little difficult when you see the effects of questionable national govenance of  a country.

May be an interesting time

The time for the Cambodian local election (2017) has come around again. This should be an interesting forunner to the General election next year and may give a taste of what may come.

There has been a lot of posturing and threats coming from the CPP (the party in power) of what will happen if the opposition parties demonstrate or push to far.

Although no longer directly involved after resigning as the leader of the CNRP after having be forced into another exile in France there is still banter between Rainsey and CPP leadership.

Not been blogging

I have not really been blogging for a while but think it is time to change that and start again.IMG_1841

I spend a lot of time walking the streets of Phnom Penh, seeing the changes in the city, seeing a city moving forward without a care for what is happening to those who live there. I see many new high rise buildings, many of which are empty of people, many building just appear to be thrown up haphazardly without any thought to the local surroundings or planning, building because we can.

Cambodian Elections

I have been following these elections with dumbfounded interest. The unbelievable naevity of local people simply amazes me. They believe what politicians tells them, seamingly without question.

Sam Rainsey (CNRP), makes lots of promises for changes to the plight of ordinary Cambodia, I hope he is able to fulfill the promises, I somehow have some doubts … but the people believe all he tells them. Only time will tell.

Meanwhile the CPP continues to run the place with a fist of Iron all be it in a very well made kidd glove.
