I read in today’s The Guardian of the appointment of Thailand’s new prime minister, Samak Sundaravej.
I am grateful to a fellow blogger for giving me the low-down on Samak’s politics. His attitude to human rights, women and journalism makes him an extremely Winkler-unfriendly person.
I found this out from a blog. My newspaper had failed to furnish me with any such helpful context.
However it did provide this item: apparently the politician had a cookery show on TV called Tasting, Grumbling, where he delivered diatribes as well as dinner.
Being paid to cook and rant? Of the eco, real food and peacenik variety of course. Sounds like my kind of show.
