    Traffic jam on elevated highway & I'm sure Phahonyothin will be jammed soon. If you're going to Don Mueang you need to leave extra early.

    5:10pm According to @Duensing_Kippen, the elevated tollway going towards Don Mueang airport is empty which suggests the entrance is blocked.

    Cant see the need for the protesters to close down the Airports.

    Jesus, so much other stuff they can do without foking up the Travelers.

    Things might kick off soon considering a Policeman has died earlier today and now their closing access to the Airport.

    Get ready people.

    Richard Barrow ‏@RichardBarrow 1m Not clear yet, but it looks like some of the protesters have decided to abandon the roadblocks. Even so, gridlock will remain for a while.

    All clear now , though some back log of traffic which will obviously take a while to clear .

    Message is also clear , give us what we want or else

    And since the precident has been set long ago Thailand simply takes another step to failed state status .

    think of all the missed flights with discount airlines. A lot of money will be lost. Makes people happy to come back again.

    ^You know what, I'm delving into a few policies to keep up to date, and I came across this.

    Bear with me - I know most know this , but rice is being bought at twice its value.

    At the same time, the money the farmers receive in loans which the government and people can't afford due to the simple basics of economics, then gets chided out of them for a shiny new car they can't afford.

    It's a no-brainer that it all ended in tears (again)
