A novel concept but it will be difficult for democracy to take hold since the Senate will be full of military men.

There is an excellent article in the Economist online, relating to the approaching farce.

I hesitate to link to it - mr google is your friend.

I see the average Thai and a lot of them seem to manage well. They all have thiere new phones and cars. Remember we have foreigners in our governments and it's accepted... why should we bother if there are rich Chinese in the Thai government when there a Muslim and other foriegners in our own?
Teacher! Teacher! Can you tell me when Muslim became a nationality?

Meanwhile, back in fair Albion, "Are you a bishop, a bankrupt, a police officer, soldier, judge or civil servant? Sorry, you can't become an MP. Nor can children, or anyone who is not a citizen of Britain or the Republic of Ireland, or a Commonwealth citizen with indefinite leave to remain."

Nae wurries Jimmy, despite your sh!te grades in geography and ignorance of British civil law and me not knowing you from Adam, I'll still sign your nomination papers. Just let uz know where you're pitching your tent, eh?
