Re: ''Cabinet does zilch'' (PostBag, April 6).
It was interesting idea to suggest Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her cabinet receive their salaries commensurate on their performance. This should be applied to national leaders everywhere. By this reasoning, many world leaders would hardly qualify to earn as much as Thailand's 300-baht daily minimum wage.
They are in the same boat, spewing their useless rhetoric while cutting into programmes making the middle class and poor suffer the most. There is a wonderful line from the old Broadway musical, My Fair Lady. ''It's the rich that gets the gravy, it's the poor what gets the blame''.
