What changed Europe?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

What changed Europe?

Post by juansweetpotato »

Seeing as there is an election coming up, and there is some disbelief as to any real change being possible under either party by many Cambodians, I thought it may be interesting to give Cambodians our thoughts on what enabled Britain etc to change from something rather like Cambodia today to something that is seen by many as a more just society.

Any thoughts or ideas as to why/ how the change happened/ was even possible, are appreciated.

The issue with Cambodia is the endemic corruption. It's probably eating up over half the economy. Unless there's someone who's going to deal with it, reduce it to just 5 or 10%, the place will never amount to anything. I don't know how you fix the idea that tomorrow doesn't exit.

Well they all take the vote and say they will change this and that but in the end, you are like wasting a vote there. There is quite less good leader left and the rest Is all dirty politician.

That has been the case since time immemorial. You want to love without politicians? And how about =all these people constantly moaning about politicians trying to get elected themselves? Of course that will never happen....
