Not a chance. The diplomats are just showing there support for the incoming government. Very common for a government to congratulate and support incoming members of a new government. 

he was at the police station to face charges..

Are you posting on the correct forum? this is TVF, we are arrogant, condescending & xenophobic, we can to a man do a better job that they of running the show 🙂

We also like to bitch and argue a lot & again to a man, we are always correct - never admitting defeat even when faced overwhelming facts! 

You are so right and I am wrong sorry..... I am a big mouthed superhero behind my computer, but do become a docile goat in real life. 🤣

P.s. Wow....was not expecting so many chain reactions from my initial post at the start of the thread. I am flattered with all the lovely nice attentions -  thank you all and case closed for me here as it's time to take a dip in the pool 😘

There's is a time and place to voice concern but this wasn't neither. I, for one, will be sending a letter to my representative back home that this type of behavior is neither helpful nor wanted.

One of the most sensible and wise things here today. You are right, as if foreign diplomats make a public show that attracts hostility here, the local authorities could take it out and target the farangs from that nation, say on visa issue hassles are very easy to make up overnight.

But that is the cultural norm here. Whenever anyone goes to the police station people turn up to support them. 

The diplomats were being culturally appropriate and sensitive. 

That group photo with the diplomats and Thanathorn in front of the police station was needed for culture correctness.

No matter on which side one is, or which colour your shirt is....a farang diplomat should mind his business and fully refrain from internal political meddling in any country. And this includes Thailand.

 

Far to many nations, obvious ones as the USA, Israel, France, Russia etc. etc. have been making trouble all over the world for centuries.  So boys, mind your own business, clean up your own messy countries and leave Thai internal politics alone.

 

And this is also valid for the farangs/foreigners in Thailand.

Gentlemen, keep yer mouths shut, do not meddle in internal political.  Leave your arrogance, condescendance or xenophobia back at home weather it's against the Thai politics or other foreigners,  in Thailand.

That would make Thaivisa very boring!

And I suspect you letter will be treated with the utmost sincerity just prior to being filed. In the nearest trash can.

No amount of brown nosing among the farang junta fanbois on online forums will make any difference in that regard. They aren't interested in us, regards of our opinions.

You are so very right Sir. (if I may brown nose you also a bit please😂...but my nose is blocked so ok).....

 

Definately they don't care of us here...but they do care on how our diplomats behave in Thailand (as they even issued a public warning).  So if our foreign service lads start to piss of the local governance,  by logic, it may not be good for us, as some could take it out on the nationals of the nations whose diplomats are considered interfering in internal affairs.  Lex Talionis ? .... Tit for tat ?  these words should ring a bell ?  One can never be to careful on the collateral dammage in these situations, if I may.

 

Of course all this I M H O , naturally.
