    Yingluck must apologise to the people

    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 12/11/2013

    » The mood of quite a few protesters has clearly gone beyond the blanket amnesty issue. The shouts of "Yingluck get out" that resonated at every protest site – Samsen railway station, Silom, Asoke intersection and Ratchadamnoen – along with the ear-deafening whistle blowing are indicative of the mood.

    Election not the issue, it's when

    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 17/12/2013

    Real leader is needed

    News, Published on 10/02/2014

    » It is sometimes distressing to consider how close the country is to national healing, while remaining so divided. All thinking Thais agreed quite some time ago that political reform is necessary for sheer survival.

As the rhetoric ratchets up to even more divisive heights, speakers everywhere seem more concerned with baiting and putting down their opposition than providing any of the leadership that is so sorely needed.

    Crime and punishment of Somyot

    Voranai Vanijaka, Published on 01/05/2014

    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 13/01/2015
