What is the future of the Kingdom?

It will I believe remain a Kingdom ruled by a King until the people want it to be a Country ruled by Country members,and I am not a Country member!

"Give it time!"

 

How much more would you suggest? always noting that Thailand/Siam was - according to its official ideology - never colonized ...

As far as I know, that article is remaining within NCPO, which I believe Mr. P is still the head of.

the mark of a just and fair society is to be found in how rules can be adjusted, even bent.

In the words attributed to Sir Douglas Bader: "Rules are for the obediance of fools and for the guidance of wise men". (I think I got that right).

 

Of course public servants would totally disagree, me thinks. 

 

An interesting read, again. 👍

Your insights are always an enjoyable read.

BUT -

for the sake of us old guys with poor vision - would you please consider using a DARKER FONT

or at least larger font ?

 

That grey font that thaivisa favours is a strain on my eyes.

 

Thanks

Wonder if Uncle Tuu will/can keep his blanket amnesty that he will need to protect his fragile ego now he's just a mere civilian!

People should follow the visa rules, of course, but the mark of a just and fair society is to be found in how rules can be adjusted, even bent. Being a teacher taught me that.

 

Well said.  So many TV contributors would make the current Thai government look positively liberal, benign and freedom loving if they ever had the reigns of power!

I figured even as a teen that people who want power could not possibly be the people I desired to lead me.

Love that statement and only can concur wholeheartedly.

My Thai GF is saying Thais are angry. She is predicting Thanathorn will be the next PM. In her opinion, Prayut is a khamoy.
