Opinion: Dear Mr Prayut, it is time for you to resign

Dear Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha,

I am writing to you to ask that you resign and do what is best for the country. You have been in power now for seven long years and have professed to love this land dearly and deeply. But your time in power has not helped the people or raised their standard of living.

You have not returned happiness to the people, you have taken it away.

You took power by force and took our voices away from us and gave it to drug dealers and corrupt generals including your brother. Your deputy prime minister sleeps through important meetings, the people you have chosen to surround yourself with are unable to offer you frank advice or tell you the truth. You have people around you too scared to tell you how poor a job you are doing.

And this was before the pandemic hit.

Now during a time of national emergency, you have proven incapable of making the right decisions and being brave enough to do what is good for the country. You are killing the people you serve and hurting the country you say that you love.

Mr Prime Minister, it is time for you to resign.

You have shown that you are intellectually incapable, lacking in courage, and morally unfit to serve as our leader.

You have placed the wellbeing of corporations over the wellbeing of your own people. You have arrested and jailed the young and the future of this country. You have smiled and joked while the people around you died.

You are not fit to be our leader.

We understand that it is not ideal to change leaders in the middle of a national emergency and for the most part this is true.

But your rule cannot go on any longer because it has proven so disastrous over the course of the last few months.

The prime minister’s chair is currently a vacant one, just step away and enjoy your millions in peace. Leave.
