  1. The reverse applies - after more than two dozen they are counted as natural disasters... Sent from my KENNY using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  2. That we already know to be your opinion. Of course, it may be that the Thai People decide otherwise - juntas can have unpredictable endings. Anyway, let's just say that I don't share your optimism (or enthusiasm). By the way, it's "JAG" (my initials). Should make it easier for when you "dob me in" to your friends in green!
  3. Ah well, that would be far more efficiently done electronically - an "e-ticket machine will read the number from the CCTV, identify the owner, and electronically send him a penalty. Far more efficient don't you see? Ah, umh, hang on a minute......
  4. Well you are forever telling us to leave, and then if someone who (you assume) is not here posts you complain. Do try and make your mind up.
  5. They couldn't fight sleep. Mid you - walk on a path at the military academy which your status does not allow you to sully and.... I wonder if they realise how utterly pathetic all the excuses and protestations that procedures were followed is making them look?
  6. Umh, I thought, from reading your many posts, that most Thais are prospering under the junta's rule, that everyone is more prosperous, and everything in the garden is rosy? Have I misunderstood? It may be that some mutterings of discontent in the market this morning were drowned out by the ululations of the fruit and veg ladies enthusing constantly about the new Sino Thai High-Speed Railway, conversations which if I recall you were reporting on another thread this morning?
  7. It won't make any difference, they are largely unaware of (and don't care) what anyone thinks of them, outside their borders (geographically or.linguistically). It is the inevitable result of being at the centre of the universe. Sent from my KENNY using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  8. Well, that would take the pressure of you - you wouldn't have to keep telling us we should leave! Sent from my KENNY using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  9. No, nor will there be any word. Not so much on the back burner as fallen down the back of the stove. When that happens of course it may stink for a bit but sooner or later the smell goes away... Sent from my KENNY using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  10. Always assuming that it is " off the streets".
  11. I was replying to a post claiming that such prosecutions would change the way Thaksin is regarded. I don't know how many foreigners think about him, although judging by the way you always cry foul whenever Reuters or any other international news source mentions him, it is of some concern to you. That both the coups were staged during an entirely constitutional election, to ensure that the parties led by the Shinawatras did not win is not "unproven" rubbish nor is it "hogwash", it is simply true. So is the fact that this legislation is retrospective, and concerned solely with former (elected) political office holders. The current ( self appointed ones) of course have granted themselves an amnesty! Also true is that this legislation has been enacted by a junta government and has been "debated" and "passed" by a legislative assembly which the junta appointed, with no apparent scrutiny. Now, why don't you turn your sudden enthusiasm for justice to those points? By the way, what has American political lobbying got to do with that antics of a South East Asian junta?
  12. If he is convicted people, here and abroad, will see him as a former (twice elected) prime minister, ousted by a coup to prevent another re-election, who has been convicted, in absentia, by a retrospective law introduced by a military junta.

  13. There was. They tore up that constitution. Then they gave themselves an amnesty. Sent from my KENNY using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  14. Damaged whilst he was beaten to death, therefore removed (in an autopsy) to prevent the truth getting out. Poor lad.
  15. Will Southern Thailand Turn to Jihad?

    It is only a question of time. And with the Jihadhists will come attacks north of the current conflict zone. It is inevitable. Sent from my KENNY using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
