    Question Who's in charge

    Any heads up welcome?

    Now I know whose on the money and the real string pullers in my house my wife has taken to to wearing the pants since she found cash in my rear pocket.

    But seriously folks,I read some and all of last weeks cabinet gone,and the yellows are naming a new one,I guess as we'll have no say its almost irrelevant the name of the latest snout in the trough.

    Also wiki is little guide to the "constitution" or.charter
    Is CAPO CRAPO is Abisit banned from running for failing to vote or do they just make it up and change the rules in retrospect when caught....misbeavin?

    Most f the top names sem to have murder corruption indictments pensding or on the lam be a bit like UK cabinet Rolf Harris Lord Lucan and Ronnie Biggs

    Who appoints these CAPO bosses,judges,the senate chair etc is their a legal framework or is it like immi written in stone in theory but as flexible as mowing down a cop in practice.

    My guess cash trumps all and recommend you all read London's top business magazine for the stuff too grown up to be allowed a link here.

    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    The election was annulled so he wiggled out of that one on a technicality.

    Thanks AO I respect your knowledge serious and opinion so he's a runner yes?

    I am not being facetious nor am I a punter only with a life and family here it seems the a Democrat leader,not Suthep as resined,nor Yingluck who seems sure to be barred however many counts versus Yaowoppa? or Oak?

    Are there any others who are likely that perhaps I have never heard of.
    Chuan Leekpai is the only one I can recall that was not snoh'ed under the reek of porkbarreling

    What a gentleman Chuan is. Stayed out of this shit. Kept his mouth quiet. He must just be so bummed out. His whiz kid Mark basically did jack shit after being handed the job. He and Anand are the only two decent humans to have ruled Thailand since I have lived here.

    The more you agree the more I like you,yes over all the years these two seemed like human, who knows when the hiatus occurs and folks come to their senses and perhaps the "great transition" has forced a new deal someone of this stature can emerge.

    In an Alice in Wonderland realm where lies are everyday currency the truth is very dangerous and may astonish ears unused to it.I think we are in for a bumpy ride.I'll be keeping my head down and hoping the rabble rousers don't provoke xenophobia any more than the laissez faire disregard the friendly locals, I feel we are like a stray elephant would be in the West an amusing curiousity,if rabble rousers beign to fail they may suggest we are not mere poosles or stray pussy but rabid and the whoe mess of falling currency,stocks and tourist numbers was caused by a few old retirees rather than take the blame themself.

    Introspection accepting loss of face,punishment ,humiliation is not a local virtue.Khreng Jai buckets may need to be sourced LT?
