The SRP's promises

The SRP's promises

The SRP can take a bow; someone says imitation is the best form of flattery. In fact,

while Funcinpec takes more than just one page from the "100 Measures" of

a Sam Rainsy government, other parties have also been helping themselves.

But a chapter called "Promise the Moon" in the SRP campaign manual?

The Gecko must have been just back from Pluto, where it spent too much time chorusing

the famous local tune called "Opposition is a Pain in the -". It may be

beyond the Gecko's widest imagination that those promises are fully funded. Before

it crawls back to Pluto, it may like to drop by the SRP Headquarters to pick up a

copy of the SRP's "Idiot's Guide to Funding Election Promises".
