Army chief Gen Apirat to pro-election activists: Don’t cross the line

Army Commander-in-Chief Gen Apirat Kongsompong today warned political activists campaigning against an election postponement “not to cross the line”.

 

He was responding to a threat by a group of activists to stage a major protest rally at the Democracy Moment this Saturday if the Election Commission cannot fix an election date by this Friday.  They are the same group of people who have been campaigning against the legitimacy of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO).

 

Gen Apirat questioned the motive of these people and expressed concerns over the impact that such protest would have on tourists and business enterprises in the areas. “I have had experience in dealing political protests for years. These people are working in cahoots. I know what they are up to,” said Gen Apirat who also serves as secretary general of NCPO.

Is that near the monument that bears a similar name?  This is a good move by Apirat - disperse the protesters all over the capital by giving them different and wrong venues.

The junta have pretty well knackered those key drivers for the past five years . . . so what's so special about an hour or two, spent be a few passionate Thais, asking why their government can't do the simplest AND FAIREST of things by stating a firm election date.

As for tourists, Thailand's place as a holiday destination has been on the slippery slope for over a year, now, and this monkey's performances will only accelerate that fall. Come on, Apirat … let that big mouth of yours put the final nail in Thailand's coffin.
