Pheu Thai party gives up demand for PM post and all political pre-conditions

There is a good reason why dems and bumj have not announced their alliance. 

 

They would be insane to pass up an offer like this. 

 

My only reservation is if they do succeed and keep Prayut and co out, in a very not distant future there could be yet another coup.

 

I suspect the dems and bumj fully appreciate your last sentence. They also know PTP are completely untrustworthy. How long would it be before PTP start the old games, and woosh an excuse for a coup is presented to the hawks just waiting.

Before I came to Thailand I thought that sentence " Every nation gets the government it deserve" is stupid .... I do not think so anymore .

tried to solicit opinions from random Thai shoppers.  and they all replied, "Thai people not talk about elections"  how strange i thought. 

Democracy requires fertile ground to grow.  it is a living thing that requires nourishment in the form of healthy debate in an open society.  it can not be taken for granted and must always questioned.

it can not be left to stagnate.  i do not foresee this happening anytime soon in Thailand

Far from a fan of that dummy Prayut, but anything will be better than letting any surrogate of Satan Thaksin back into power. An utterly repulsive figure, whose maxim in life has always been everything for myself and nothing for others.

Did you ever think that maybe they are frightened to talk about this subject?

tried to solicit opinions from random Thai shoppers. Did you stand on the high street with a microphone, camera and clipboard? The shoppers may have been surprised to be interviewed by a foreigner asking them about politics and decided to keep their views to themselves.

Completely agree. 

 

There are several key reasons why they won't talk about it - especially to foreigners. 

 

1. May not be discussed where certain issues are involved

 

2. Thais, as a cultural norm, cannot tolerate and have no mechanisms (other than violence) for handling conflict 

 

3. Generally, there is a gross lack of intellectual curiosity in Thailand 

 

4. Thais don't want to be seen to lose face in front of foreigners

The demands are dropped for now but once an agreement is reached they will try to power play into the top position. This entire thing is very sad.

Thai people not talk, that means I wont talk.

They cant even express opinion whilst not wanting to talk

 . . . Thai people say, think, dont like is the answer to every awkward question.

Speak for yourself coward. Dont hide behind a nation.
