[ATTACH=CONFIG]119490[/ATTACH] A Thai MP has gotten into hot water over his controversial suggestion for poor Thai women who want an easy life: â€œfind a farang husband.â€ Pheu Thai MP Sunai Julphongsathornâ€™s words caused a barrage of complaints on Thai web forums after a clip of his comments (embedded below) surfaced on YouTube recently. The 12-minute video was apparently shot on August 19 at a seminar at a school in Samut Prakan. Sunai tells the audience of around 1,000 red shirts to find a farang husband for an easy life â€œbecause European governments give you everything for free.â€ Sunai went on: â€œGet a German husband. Get a Swedish husband. Get a Norwegian husband. People used to love [Thailand] unreservedly. But the more they loved the country, the poorer they got. The more they loved the country, the stupider they got.â€ â€œAll you need is a farang husband and their government will pay you to study,â€ he said. Even more controversially, he then implied that the best way to study a foreign language was by sleeping with a foreigner. â€œSitting studying is too slow. Lie down to study, then go to the hospital. They will pay you to have the babyâ€¦ Itâ€™s all free, right up to the shitty diapers.â€ More . . . >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Nominee for Douchebag of the Year award.
