Quasi Military Myanmar Government had virtually reached the arrogant level of telling its people to eat cake if there isn’t any bread to consume.
“Let them eat cake” is the traditional translation to English of the French phrase “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche“, supposedly spoken by Queen Marie Antoinette, upon learning that the peasants had no bread. Since brioche was enriched with butter and eggs, as opposed to ordinary bread, the quote supposedly would reflect the princess’s obliviousness to the condition of the people. (Wiki)
Myanmar President Advisor U Ko Ko Hlaing failed to notice the various uses of electricity and wrongly thought that the use of electricity is for light only and advised the people to conserve the electricity and switch off the lights and use candles.
