    Thailand-Justice Under Fire

    Just a quick heads up for this programme on BBC2 tonight at 22.30 GMT, could be interesting:BBC - BBC Two Programmes - This World, Thailand - Justice Under Fire

    In Thailand a charismatic woman leader has just won a general election promising justice for the victims of army violence. Last year more than ninety people were killed in bloody clashes between demonstrators and the army in central Bangkok.
    Award-winning correspondent Fergal Keane investigates the struggle of victims' families as they seek the truth about what happened to their loved ones. He explores claims of cover-up and impunity for the powerful.

    rien ne va changer

    I regret to say I don't think much will change. Yingluck Shinawatra's pedigree is about the same as that of the the ruling military - venal and corrupt - they are both as bad as each other. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    It's all hot air methinks, just to get off on a good footing.

    I think we may all be surprised by Yingluck. She is no fool, and has run a very complex business in her past. She may surprise the cynics amongst us!!
