    I wonder what would happen to Boon Mee, George, Dr Patpong and the other TV lot anyway in a societal 'correction' in Thailand.
    WTF are you lumping me in with that crowd, Bud?
    And, what gives with the societal correction BS?

    The obsession serve a practical purpose, naturally. Keeps most distracted and off-balance. I too, tire of the continued and forced upon deepened reference to the old fart.

    Fek me, now there's a fantasy for you. Surely you jest. Nobody can be quite that, shall we say, naive?

    Nope - is that tin plate in your head pressing against that nasal cavity (or any cavity) again?

    No - they're not stupid (ok some are) - most of them are fully aware of the issues. They ignore them on purpose and then try to bring the argument back to Thaksin all the time as a distraction.

    It's a tactical approach in the Sondhi-chinese-thai way - and for precisely the same reason as that group. They don't want to see the emergence of a democratic Thailand because many of them are businesspeople who'se livelihoods and prosperity rely on the artificially low wages and corrupt system of doing things. The last thing they want is a progressive left-leaning democracy.
    My mind is not for rent to any God or Government, There's no hope for your discontent - the changes are permanent!

    Thailand’s ruling party proposes plan to rewrite post-coup constitution
    Thursday, February 9

    BANGKOK — Thailand’s ruling party has proposed a controversial plan to amend the country’s constitution, which was drafted after a 2006 coup that ousted Thaksin Shinawatra from power.

    It contains a clause that led to the dissolution of two pro-Thaksin parties.

    The Pheu Thai party headed by Thaksin’s sister says the constitution is “undemocratic” because it was drafted by a military-appointed committee.

    The plan submitted Thursday to Parliament calls for the creation of a constitution-drafting assembly of 99 people that would have 180 days to rewrite the charter before submitting it to a national referendum.

    A similar move by a pro-Thaksin government in 2008 sparked street rallies that culminated with protesters shutting Bangkok’s two airports for a week.

    So, basically the Thai constitution is a palimpsest, or maybe should be composed on an Etch-a-Sketch.

    Let's confine ourselves to the current version which is flawed from it's inception

    The term seems to have lost its meaning here, unless "rewrite" is another way of saying "restore."

    Eight more PAD members indicted
    April 11, 2013

    Public prosecutors Thursday indicted eight more members of the People's Alliance for Democracy on conspiracy charges in connection with the seizures of two Bangkok airports in 2008.

    All eight defendants were released on bail.

    The accused were Saken Suthiwong, a singer; Lakhana Dissayasarin, an international school director; Chaiporn Kerdmongkol, a singer known as Jum Dankwian; Suthi Achasai, an NGO coordinator; Gen Panthep Puwanartnurak, a former deputy permanent secretary of the Defence Ministry; Somchai Wongwet; Kusuma Plaengsorn; and Somsak Issamanyee, deputy leader of the New Politics Party.

    They are charged with assembling with more than 10 people to instigate unrest, teaming up to take over and hide in the premises of others, using force and conspiring with more than two people to violate orders issued under the security law.

    ^
    She's the Director of the American School of Bangkok. I wonder how many know that. The ASB is among the most expensive schools in LOS. How does this affect the US Embassy's relations with the yellow bitch?
