Thai politics and noodles DO NOT mix

Thai politics is certainly a very interesting thing to watch with it’s bureaucracy, back handers, cars, second wives, guns and now we have a woman Prime Minister in line.

In July of this year (2011) the Prime Minister elect Yingluck Shinawatra was accused of buying votes with the noodles that she was cooking – which can be classified as vote buying.
