And finally… out of tune
Lawmakers in Thailand have been criticised after it was revealed that the country’s new parliament building includes a karaoke room.
The Sappaya-Sapasathan also features a running track, massage room and golf driving range.
The public reacted with irritation to the news.
One person tweeted: “Is it right for people to pay taxes to feed these people.”
An editorial in the Bangkok Post questioned the necessity of the karaoke room.
“A workplace, especially a high-status one, should exude a sense of seriousness and solemnity — not an entertainment co-working space where office workers sing along in karaoke and dance after work hours,” the newspaper said.
