Storm in a teacup - but since the entire thai media is kissing the arse of the sakdina/upper class then what would we expect? One shouldn't under-estimate the childish and naive reasons given for the last Coup d'Etat. Or the rape, murder and burning alive of leftists at the behest of a few right-wingers over the radio at Thammasat in 1976 and every ten years or so thereafter - or the actions/behaviours of those expected to be 'leaders'. When you boil it all down - Thailand and Thais (hi-so and lo-so) aren't much different from Rwanda and the Hutus/Tutsis IMO. The great irony is the Bangkok-Chinese class look down on the darker skinned indiginous Thais, as though they are more important and more intelligent (Butters should call the lighter skinned "Thais" monkeys (are they really Thai - I doubt it?) .. A mega-history thesis at some point in not too distant future.
