When I read the news this morning my first thought was ' The protestors are winning this & the Dinosaurs are running scared.   More power to the youngun's elbows. 

Totally disagree with you, it is slowly growing, and soon the whole country will be involved. Your idol and his cronies have already shown that they are running scared with this mornings announce

The army desperados think this will stifle dissent. I doubt it will. They are so despised at this point, this draconian move will only make things worse.   And in addition, this will stifle

Appears they are trying to stifle the freedom of the press and that is never good.  Using the archaic laws they employ, why don't they just go back in time to riding elephants and horses and using carrier pigeons.

Well, TVF won't be affected, same as before. Which is...

If it was me, I'd open a dialogue between the handful of billionaire clans and the mass of the people. I'm sure there's a compromise here somewhere. Jailing the leaders was a big mistake, just as shutting down public media is. It goes out of your control. Just how long are police and soldiers going to continue obeying orders, apart from one or two elite units.

It seems the speaker of the house has suggested they have a meeting soon

How low can a share go on the SET before it's delisted?

 

"Nation Multimedia Group (NMG) closed at 0.46 baht Monday on the Stock Exchange of Thailand, where it has been sliding toward its lowest level since 2011."

The prime minister also dismissed speculation that the government was planning to impose a curfew and enlarge the state of emergency to cover some other areas outside Bangkok to deal with the escalating anti-government protests.

 

He said the he will ask the Cabinet during its weekly meeting on Tuesday to consider proposing to Parliament to meet to discuss the current situation.

Well seeing as the great leader has stated it won't introduce a curfew I am inclined to believe they will, If past experience is anything to go by I reckon I am guaranteed to be right!!

Gotta love a new threat for using social media and the lack of free spech just handed down...trying to stop the protestors is going to end bad for this government i have a feeling.

Yes, a lot of short sighted, dim little men running scared, they will box themselves into a corner and they are flailing around blindly for anything to stop the pain. Messing with the peoples FB and online stuff may well blow up in their faces!!

 

They are in denial, all they are doing is adding power to the demonstrators and prolonging the pain. Unfortunately I don't expect them to roll over and leave the trough without significant discomfort the like of which we have not seen for many years...

I think a curfew will be the icing on the cake as far as the students are concerned

You guys are far too optimistic. 

 

It is not that easy and quick to dislodge a government, legitimate or not. 

 

Just look at Maduro, in Venezuela, or Assad, in Syria, or Lukashenko, in Belarus... not to mention Carrie Lam in Hong Kong. 

 

These guys are still there despite having endured far far more pressure than the Thai PM. 

 

In fact, it is very rare for such protests to succeed, and when they do, as in Iran in 1979, for example, they are followed by mayhem...
