There is no media crime, diplomatic crisis, fat case of drug trafficking or human trafficking in thailandin which it does not appear Big Joke To solve it. Or rather, as some of his critics say, she enters the scene to be in the photo and get the applause for the work that other colleagues do. Officially, it is the national fire extinguisher.
