They just keep getting it wrong big time and cause more problems than if they had kept out of it.

I'm an American, I agree with you, they should have been reigned in years ago.....I would love to see them shutdown, or at least purged.

Its not our fault. Why would farangs want to help ungrateful Thais anymore? All they want from us is money and free homes for their poor families.

Soi dogs are higher up the pecking order than farangs.

What do farangs legally own?

You want democracy then get rid of all the thousands of useless army generals and bring back Thaksin. He's greedy but millions  love him. Good for the economy.

You're on your own Thais!

You dug your own hole so lie in it.

Picky.

 

Agree that no country applies democracy as it was applied in Athens in the 5th century B.C.

 

However, I do think that the UK complies much more closely to the modern concept of democracy than Thailand does.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy

 

"No consensus exists on how to define democracy, but legal equality, political freedom and rule of law have been identified as important characteristics.[12][13] These principles are reflected in all eligible citizens being equal before the law and having equal access to legislative processes."

really? they have done away with legal aid for a start so only if you have money could you sue a government department that withholds your rights. As the American saying goes, "Capital punishment is for those that don't have the capital"

I think he may get into trouble for this statement as officially released publicly by the big shots, Thailand has been transformed from a military control to the public domain, NCPO disbanded and replaced with an equally same non military watch dog, and Democratic Elections were a success thus bringing Thailand in-line with all the rest of the Democratic Nations of the World. 

 

I would be afraid that this now falls under a National Security issue as it is spreading false rumors and trying to undermine a legitimate and accepted government. But we all know the real truth, don't we!

No such thing exists, or has ever existed, in Thailand.

The current extremely lazy spineless 'sabai sabai' culture/society waiting for a miracle—by others—just doesn't cut it.  YES, the local citizens are getting exactly what they deserve.  But sadly, too many of us retired expats who loved Thailand enough to pull up stakes and move here are caught between a rock and a hard place.

So you're saying  you love the extremely lazy spineless 'sabai sabai' culture well I would have join with you on that because that's why I moved here but then I found out that I must have married the only hard working in your face and as far removed from sabai sabai as you can get thai woman in Thailand!Bugger!

I think we restored democracy once before with the cost of thousands of lives. A lesson that isn’t even taught in your School history.

Thais like to call their democracy 

 

Democracy with Thai Characteristics 

 

But they should call it

 

Democracy with (decidedly Undemocratic) Thai Characteristics

Tell that to them in how they just released it to the media publicly. Seem to have covered all of their angles. We all know the real deal though.
