    Thaksin Throws a Party

    Bemused looks all round as Manchester concert-goers are asked to pay their respects to the king of Thailand while a giant photo of him & the queen is lowered over the stage & the national anthem is played.

    Formalities over & it's on with the show - two Thai kids breakdancing. Polite silence from the assembled masses. Then Thailand's Top Supermodel (apparantly) takes the stage to chants of 'ladyboy, ladyboy' from the usual suspects in the crowd followed by a counterfiet Frank Sinatra to chants of 'who are ya, who are ya' then Sven, Thaksin & the squad took to the stage & it all went bananas & everybody was happy.

    Free Thai food everywhere & the quality was top notch. Every queue was two-hundred deep. The beer tent was selling Singha for 3 a bottle & it came in a plastic pint pot. Security was tight & they were turning anybody who didn't really belong away. Police were everywhere including all the rooftops & there wasn't any trouble.

    Thaksin kept putting in an appearance at the window of the town hall to massive cheers from the crowd. They were loving him & he was loving it. Nobody here has a clue about this guy's background & I don't think it would matter if they did.

    Thaksin thinks the fans are calling him Frank Sinatra because they think he, too, is a great man. Truth is they simply can't pronounce his proper name.

    All in all a good night because the crowd made it so. The concert was shite but at least he's showing willing by putting it on.

    Mai Charoenpura her name was. Don't know if that's exactly what she looked like because they kept us all about 50 yards from the stage (just out of throwing distance) while only mums & kids were allowed in the front section.

    There were a load of Thai dancing girls. It was pretty nostalgic watching them do their thing. Nothing special though.

    Thaksin addresses Man City fans



    Thaksin Shinawatra made his first public appearance after being ousted in a bloodless coup in September 1997 by attending a concert in Manchester, UK to officially introduce himself to fans of Manchester City football club.

    Addressing a cheering crowd of 8,000 fans at Manchester's Albert Square, Thaksin - who, last month completed a deal to acquire Manchester City football club for 81.6 million pounds (5.3 billion baht) - thanked fans for the warm welcome before stepping down to enjoy performances lined up at the concert.

    Thai singer Mai Charoenpura ended the concert by crooning Manchester City's anthem "Blue Moon".

    Thaksin just earlier witnessed his club losing 0-1 to Valencia in a pre-season opening friendly. Following Manchester City's defeat, Thaksin told reporters he had no plans to make a political comeback in Thailand.

    "The majority of Thai voters support me and I'm certain that I could win a free and fair election again," he said.

    "My involvement with Manchester City will show that I don't only have the support of the majority of Thais but also from people in England."

    It's probably best not to call someone that has ordered thousands of deaths a twat

    Miss Charoenpura had the gall to stand up & announce, as if it was something to be proud of, that we are looking at a top ten finish this season. The silence was deafening. Things quickly moved onto the dancing girls & ladyboy chants & the moment was gone.

    Top ten - is that it?
