Suthep Voted Asia's Person of the Year!

Well, the phrasing of Asia Society's reaction says it all doesn't it? "How Thailand's Suthep Thaugsuban Ran Away With Our Person of the Year Poll"

Will the ARMY step in again

No, it doesn't. It neglects, as all articles seem to do, the fact that the major players in all of this are Chinese (Sino-Thais). It misses the point that the Bangkok Chinese, who back Suthep, want to shut out the Thai people from any influence on government. Yes, it does! The conflict is being wag...

Scotland Yard’s rotten core

... while taking into account the ample salary of your Ol' Bill at home and the heavily underpaid local BIB who even has to take out a load to pay for his own service weapon? Does that look like an equal equation test?

Scotland Yard’s rotten core

After having read so many condescending remarks falangs use to make on most of the expart fora about the alleged corruptness of the BIB, I must confess that I couldn't surpress a malacious chuckle when I saw this article about Britain's Finest in today's Independent : Exclusive: Scotland Yard’s rott...

Too simple. If losing face was such a major concern she wouldn't have turned for help to the army leaders last Wednesday.

Maybe this is a naive question, but it's one that has puzzling me for some time. Why doesn't the government declare a state of emergency?

Will the ARMY step in again

Don't hope too hard. I have an ominous feeling that if, or when, the army gets involved they will be rather siding with the anti-government camp than with the government. Suthep is all but a fool. His whole demeanour exuberates total abandon because he's assured that he can boast the support of Very...
