Thaksin is still revered up here out in the sticks.  If he was to return there would but a white horse with a golden saddle and the road would be covered with orchids.  Prayuth....no such luck! 

They are both bad people to the retirees and  farangs on marriage extensions, I think we all know about the unelected "PM". but Thaksin was responsible  for the ridiculous 90 day reporting.

Obviously the Election Commission feels that the Democracy/Reform movement needs strengthening and is doing its best to persuade people to get involved.   Move Forward will no doubt be grate

When he is down, really down kick him in the guts, kick him in the head multiple times. You're such a hero Prayuth kicking a man who would have your job.  Your rice bowl under threat?

Keep it up you bunch of clowns, all you are doing is helping the protests grow. It appears that the geriatrics are determined to make  matters worse by going after Thanathorn, what a bunch of sho

Weird timing, I have to say; still fighting the last war, which was about knocking out leaders, rather than the current war, which is about hearts and minds.

Who are likely to be a threat to Thailand from the Asean Community? I am struggling with this one, the Army seems only to exist to have coups, seems like the only wins they have are over their own un-armed people.

Laos, after CCP has finished the debt trap. Echoes from Vietnam War, the commies are at it again.

Laos is not likely to make all its debt payments this year, much of them owed to China, which has become the world’s biggest lender, more so than the World Bank or any other global institution, according to analysts.

EC to file criminal charges against Thanathorn and 15 executives over loans to Future Forward Party

By THE NATION

The Election Commission (EC) on Monday decided to file criminal charges against former Future Forward Party (FFP) leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit for giving loans of Bt191 million to his party in January and April 2019, and against 15 party executives for taking the loan.

 

Article 72 of the Political Party Act BE 2560 prohibits political parties from receiving donations of money or assets from any sources which it knows are unlawful or have reasonable doubt of it being unlawful. It also prohibits the receiving of donations in excess of Bt10 million per year from an individual.

 

Article 92(3) of the same act allows the Constitutional Court to consider dissolving any political party that violates Article 72.

 

In December 2019, the EC had petitioned the Constitutional Court to dissolve Future Forward Party. The court subsequently ordered the party’s dissolution on February 21, as well as banned its leader and 15 party executives from political activities for 10 years.

 

This prompted Thanathorn to step down and start his new “Progressive Movement”, while Future Forward MPs led by Pita Limjaroenrat established the Move Forward Party on March 8, vowing to continue the work of Future Forward.

 

The EC on Monday said that Thanathorn and 15 FFP executives had also violated Article 66 of the Political Party Act, which prohibits an individual from donating more than Bt10 million per year to a political party.

 

The donor violating this article is punishable with a maximum five years' imprisonment or Bt100,000 fine, or both, and will be barred from voting for five years, while the receiver of the donation is punishable with a maximum three years' imprisonment or Bt1 million fine.

It has been said before. A loan is NOT a donation.

I think most of the old folk are royalists and have no problem with a Government that maintains the status quo. If they get involved thet'll mostly be wearing yellow shirts.

A business person that i know in Suratthani tells me that Khun Prayuth is doing an excellent job running the country. However we all know that Surat is the hotbed of the Yellowshirts.

Currently the country is in a deadlock with the daily demonstrations and the stubbern government not moving anywhere. And - most importantly - this government will do everything to protect the political systems as it is. The generals MUST do this in their very personal interest, to protect their wealth and safety. 

 

Think about this:

 

Any compromise which brings the country closer to democracy and a rule of law is a big no-no for them, given how criminal and corrupt they are. It simply is much too dangerous for them to risk that one day a fair court in a Thai democracy prosecutes them for all their crimes.

 

Therefore, to avoid any reform towards democracy and rule of law and to get rid of the deadlock, they need an escalation now. They need a decisive battle. That might be a reason why they want an escalation now by prosecuting Thanathorn, to ingnite violence and real riots, and to have an excuse for a tough crackdown then. Yellow thugs will be ordered to support this well engineered agenda of escalation. 

 

As I pointed out before already, after such a provoced crackdown, I predict that the army will give the power to some civil friends (I guess Anutin will appointed as the next PM), in order to appease the people and the international community, and to create a "government of national unity", whose duty only will be to protect the system for another decade, till the circle will start again. 

 

Needs a revolt within the army with the young 'cannon fodder' downing arms.

Of course there are some profiteers of Prayuts corrupt nepotism, especially in the elite. The majority of the Thai people are losing and suffer from what this man does, though.
