Right or wrong, this is the Speaker speaking!
"Once the House Speaker hands down a judgement, that's it. Whether it's right or wrong is something else..."
That's the statement from House Speaker Somsak Kiatsuranont which was today voted "Remarks of the Year" by Parliament Press Corp.
The Parliament reporters also gave him a nickname: "The Fake Hammer, Made in Dubai."
"Hammer" had been Somsak's nickname when he was deputy House Speaker and was then known for his decisiveness in handling House debates. He often used the hammer to put things back into order.
Now, it would be interesting to know his reactions to the reporters' tongue-in-cheek annual teasing festival
