Kem Sokha is often seen seated alone in a thick wooden throne on stage, something that you hardly or never see Sam Rainsy doing.  The more vacuous a person, the more props he needs to fill the emptiness.


But now with Tioulong Saumura there, at least he's in the same row as other CNRP leaders and they're not in plastic chairs. - Theary C. Seng

The Wooden Throne Cut Down to Size But Still Stands Alone.  Other CNRP Leaders Promoted from Plastic Even Without Help from Tioulong Saumura.

I may have named-and-shamed away The Thick Wooden Throne... Temporarily or for good, only time will tell. I will vote CNRP IN SPITE of Kem Sokha as will so many others, going against the grain in a lesser-evil decision. - Theary C. Seng

Part 18: Kem Sokha and The Thick Wooden Throne

To make Cambodia understandable for Americans (in terms of temperament, intelligence, communication skills): Hun Sen is Trump; Kem Sokha, Sarah Palin; Sam Rainsy, Barack Obama. 
Of all the thrones in this series "Kem Sokha and The Thick Wooden Throne", I find this the most disturbing as I imagine the different scenarios that led to this meal seating. As it's inside, the plastic chairs had to be intentionally sought out and brought in from the outside or back corner somewhere for the plebeians to use rather than just pulling the similar chairs within reach already there; King Sokha made a huge effort to distinguish his chair from those of the visiting plebes coming to pay their respects (and tributes?). A reflection of the smallness of a man that I find extremely unsettling.

The plebes on the dais may have graduated from plastic. Congratulations!  But certainly not the regular plebes; they wouldn't be able to handle it!

It took 22 parts in a series -- Kem Sokha and The Thick Wooden Throne -- to achieve equality. The 2 VPs in the same row and similar chair as Kem Sokha. Now, will it last? (Koh Kong, 22 June 2017)

Part 24: Kem Sokha and The Thick Wooden Throne

 Nope, it didn't last; it was only a lapse in judgment; the imperial nature is too deeply lodged. (Kampot, 23 June 2017)

A permanent upgrade for his 1st VP, Pol Ham?

Forced equality at last? Or, another lapse of judgment?

The plebes on the dais promoted from plastic: another lapse of judgment?

 The writing board is ostentatiously there to make him look professorial. And I think it's his way to keep track of his thoughts for who in the audience can read the scribbling?

The more vacuous a person the more props...

    Perhaps he started to heed to Ms. Theary Seng's exposure about his wooden throne.
