  1. Certainly does my head in when everyone is on the phone in a restaurant or at other social events.
  2. The PAD who did all the things you say the dems did are not allied to the dems. They were fiercely critical of the last dem government because they would not follow their rabid nationalistic policies. As for lefties, what lefties? PT and the UDD are as right wing as any group in Thailand.
  3. Did she tell anyone she was going to raise this issue or was it another sudden policy decision made on the fly?
  4. If there was a huge fight in front of your house would you drag the one injured guy in, go out to help? Or call 911? Granted we all want to help but these technical school guys pick teams very quickly and show no mercy when they start fighting. Ok but your second sentence saying he probably deserved this assault is somewhat harsh. Also I would open my door to someone who needed help. Maybe foolish but I would still do it.
  5. "One provision in the draft allows those found to be holding Thai property illegally to transfer the plots to legitimate entities within one year to avoid being punished." The legitimate entity being this racist and his equally xenophobic mates?
  6. So laughable.Do you think for a moment Sting or Bono's sympathies (Sunday Bloody Sunday) would not be on the side of the redshirts murdered by the army in 2010 ? Would they change their minds after that persuasive charmer Kasit "explained" the redshirt demonstrators murdered themselves? Scondly luvvie though she is Emma Thompson has a greater intellect and perception than either of those two gents. Sunday Bloody Sunday was a song critical of murders that took place during a peaceful demonstration. Bono has condemned all sides responsible for the violence commited during "the troubles". It is by no means pro IRA. He would be no fan of the red stormtroopers or the army. Would probably be critical of both. Probably why he hasn't been invited. Mind you so would Emma Thompson, not sure why PT invited her. Rubbish and being pro or anti IRA is irrelevant.It is inconceivable that Bono (or Sting) would take the side of the army shooting civilians.No human rights organisation has to date - why should they particularly given their record? And actually the Bloody Sunday demonstration wasn't completely peaceful in the sense that it took place at a time of escalating IRA violence.Martin McGuiness has confirmed he had snipers in the area ready to pick off British soldiers.However from all I've read there was no actual IRA violence on that day.So the soldiers concerned were panicky and undisciplined - just like Thailand in 2010. I'll check on that Martin McGuiness info as its news to me. However the demo was a peaceful demonstration despite Brit claims to the opposite. I never said bono would take the side of the army where did that come from in my post? The two cases are not similar. The reds were firing on the army in 2010, no one fired upon the British army during Bloody Sunday. It was an unprovoked assault on peaceful protesters.

    The right to speak out

    These are your rights http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bL0CCphgmZ8&desktop_uri=%252Fwatch%253Fv%253DbL0CCphgmZ8&autoplay=1
  9. Isn't Hugo dead? Yes he dead so what is the problem will his ideas be any the worst? As far as PT are concerned they will be perfect.
  10. Isn't Hugo dead? I do believe so, and Nelson is reported to be close-to-death, but why should these inconvenient facts stand in the way of using their names & reputations, to enhance this Thai-government-sponsored reform-chat and help bring Thaksin home whitewashed & cleaner-than-clean ? Actually thinking on, a dead invitee would be just the sort of critic PT would love to have contribute to this worthless PR stunt.

    Japanese Man 'Drugged And Robbed' In Pathumthani

    Aren't you being a tad harsh on the Thai hospitals here? .
  12. 'The allegation badly damages the reputation of the government and the ′image′ of Thailand, according to Mr. Prompong. He warns that he might file a legal complaint over these comments by invoking the Computer Crimes Act of 2007, which criminalises online libels.' People are entitled to a point of view. They are free to critcise the govt if they feel they are failing in some way. PT needs to stop threatening the citizens it is currently misgoverning and answer their criticisms by pointing out where such criticisms are wrong, accepting some times they do get it wrong and learning to govern without intimidation. They are like all autocratic organisations, intolerant of any view but their own, unwilling to listen to reasoned arguments and believe that bullying and intimidation is the only way to deal with those who are against them. This is no way to govern a country, so much crap has recently hit the fan that they are in full panic mode and lashing out at anything that is beyond the control of their spin.
  13. I think she is doing a pretty good job, at least she has not told the army to shoot people. Nope, she has her red stormtroopers for that.
