    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 13/01/2012

    » Two street protests greeted the government this week with more to come soon and the government's plan for a two billion baht compensation package for victims of political violence seems to have backfired. But the "talk of the town" is the ear-bashing incident at Suvarnabhumi airport.

    Spectrum, Voranai Vanijaka, Published on 15/01/2012

    » Earlier this month, the government reached a compromise to increase the price of compressed natural gas (CNG) by just 50 satang per kilogramme starting tomorrow. In a concession to angry transport operators, Deputy Prime Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong dropped the original plan to increase the price of CNG _ more commonly known known as NGV (natural gas for vehicles) _ at the rate of 50 satang a month for 12 months until it reached 14.50 baht a kilogramme. Mr Kittiratt has promised further consultation with the transport sector in the next few weeks before deciding whether there will be further CNG price hikes.
